Sneak Peek at 2012 Titleist Bag Range

As promised to some Team Titleist members earlier today, following is a slideshow showing the colourways and orientations of the 2012 bag range for Europe.

More details will be up on the UK and European websites within the next two weeks!

The trip back home has clearly paid dividends for Titleist Ambassador Greg Chalmers as he added the Australian PGA Championship to the Australian Open he captured only two weeks ago!

A par on the first hole of a three-man sudden death playoff was enough to secure the title for Chalmers (Pro V1x, 910 D3 driver, 909F fairway, 910F fairway, 909H hybrid, MB irons, Vokey Design SM4 pitching, sand and lob wedges).

Fellow Titleist Ambassador Adam Scott (Pro V1, 910 D3 driver, 910Fd fairway, 910H hybrid, MB irons, Vokey Design SM4 pitching, sand and lob wedges and a Scotty Cameron Kombi Long putter) and Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Aaron Baddeley tied for fourth place, two shots behind the leaders.

Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the event, with 120 players (including 7 of the 11 finishing amongst the top 10 and ties).

On the European / South African Tour, Titleist Ambassador Bernd Wiesberger carded a final round -4 to claim runners up spot at the SA Open Championship, his second runner-up spot of the season.

Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the SA Open Championship with 109 players, compared to 23 for the nearest competitor.

Greg Chalmers' win at The Australian PGA Championship brings Titleist's Golf Ball Worldwide Wins count to 169 in 2011, compared to 27 for the nearest competitor.

The SA Open Championship in Pictures

After the SA Open Championship, there is just one more European Tour event before the Race To Dubai concludes at the Dubai World Championship. For many players, this could be their last chance to avoid Q-School, so lots of pressure this week!

Measuring 7,761 yards, the par 72 Serengeti Golf Club will give a few players the chance to open their shoulders and throw caution to the wind. Despite its undulations (greens and fiarways), it is fairly open with water featuring on eight of the holes.

Titleist was again the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the event with 109 players, compared to 23 for the nearest competitor.

At the time of writing, staffer Jbe Kruger has a share of the lead after the first round at -7. He is being closely followed by fellow Titleist staffers and compatriots Shaun Norris (-5) and George Coetzee (-4). Good luck to all those players looking to secure their cards this week!

Welcome to the Serengeti!

We all know when we've really made a good swing and made a sweet connection with the ball - it feels so effortless.

But how can we use our practice sessions to focus down on better ball striking?

Titleist ball players occupied four of the top five spots at the Iskandar Johor Open in Malaysia this week, as Pro V1 loyalist Joost Luiten posted a final round 6-under 65 to record his first career Asian and European Tour titles.

In the rain-shortened event in Malaysia, 25-year old Luiten finished on 15-under 198 for the 54 holes played, one shot ahead of Pro V1x loyalist Daniel Chopra. Three players, including Pro V1x loyalist Padraig Harrington and Pro V1 loyalist Rhys Davies, tied for third place, another shot back.

Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the Iskandar Johor Open with 101 players, compared to 23 for the nearest competitor.

Elsewhere, on the LPGA tour, Pro V1 loyalist Hee Young Park won the CME Group Titleholders for her first career LPGA title, posting a 2-under 70 in the final round for a 9-under 279 total and a two shot victory.

Titleist was again the overwhelming ball of choice with 41 players, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 5.

Finally, Pro V1x loyalist Adam Crawford claimed the NSW Open Championship with a 6-under total and topped a leaderboard that included seven Titleist golf ball loyalists among the 11 players that finished in the top 10 and ties.
