Titleist's League of Nations
Posted: March 29, 2011
The European Tour is back in Africa this week as Agadir, Morocco plays host to the Trophee Hassan II. The event made it's first appearance on the European Tour schedule in 2010 and saw Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Rhys Davies walking away with a maiden European Tour title.
A number of Titleist Ambassadors are in the field in Agadir this week looking to follow the example of Rhys Davies and taste European Tour success at the Trophee Hassan II. The Titleist contingent on the European Tour really is a league of nations these days and the field in Morocco is packed full of Ambassadors from around the world.
Young Spaniard Pablo Larrazabal, Argentinean Tano Goya and Chile's Mark Tullo will add some Latin flair to proceedings whilst the French are represented by Gregory Bourdy, European Tour rookie Romain Wattel and the effervescent Thomas Levet. England's Robert Dinwiddie, Seve Benson, Kenneth Ferrie and Paul Waring are all in the field to spearhead the English contingent and big hitting George Coetzee will be looking to power his way to victory for South Africa. Scandanavia is also well represented by the likes of Sweden's Michael Jonzon, compatriot Oscar Floren and 'Flying Finn' Mikko Ilonen. The Titleist ranks in Morocco are also bolstered this week by a pair of young Americans in the shape of 2007 British Amateur Champion Drew Weaver and Indiana native Chis Baker.
The field in Morocco really does highlight the cosmopolitan nature of the European Tour and with so many young, talented, up-and-coming players within the Titleist ranks it's a lot of fun to be out on Tour watching their progress.
