The Singapore Open in pictures

It's been a busy week for the Titleist Tour Team in Singapore this week - away from their home on board the Titleist Tour Truck, the guys have had to get used to the high humidity which makes it feel warmer then the 32 C the thermometer is showing! With rain forecast for all four days, there could be a few stoppages!

Co-sanctioned by the European and Asian Tours, the Barclays Singapore Open is played at Sentosa GC over two courses - The Tanjong and The Serapong, both par 71, measuring 6,625 and 7,357 yards respectively. It should be an interesting week as players jostle for standings in the Race To Dubai.

Wins on the Champions Tour, The South African Tour, The Asian Tour and the Canadian Tour headline the Titleist Tour Report this week.

Pro V1x loyalist Jay Don Blake won the Charles Schwab Championship on the Champions Tour after closing with a level par 71 for a two stroke victory. He was joined at the top of the leaderboard by fellow Titleist ball loyalists Mark Calcavecchia (Pro V1) and Michael Allen (Pro V1x) and Titleist Brand Ambassador Jay Haas (Pro V1, 910 D2 driver, 910Fd fairway, 910H and 909H hybrids, CB irons, Vokey Design wedges, Scotty Cameron Studio Design putter) who were among four players tied for second place.

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the event with 21 players, seven times the nearest competitor with three.

In South Africa, Titleist Brand Ambassador Shaun Norris (Pro V1x, 910 D3 driver, 910F fairway, new MB (712) irons and Vokey Design wedges) carded a final round five under 65 to capture the Nashua Masters for his second career vistory. He edged fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Tyrone Mordt (Pro V1x, 910 D3 driver, new CB (712) irons and Vokey Design wedges) by just one shot. Each of the top 5 finishers trusted Titleist golf balls for their success.

At the Mercuries Taiwan Masters on the Asian Tour, local favourite and Pro V1x loyalist Lu Wei-chih earned a three shot wire-to-wire victory over fellow Pro V1x loyalist Thaworn Wiratchant. Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the event with 82 players, more than 5 times the nearest competitor with 14.

With a birdie at the final hole of the Desert Dunes Classic, Pro V1x loyalist Byron Smith posted a final round 6-under 66 for a two shot victory on the Canadian Tour.

Elsewhere, Titleist Ambassador Rory McIlroy's tied fourth place finish at the WGC HSBC Champions event moved him into the World No. 2 position in the Official World Golf Rankings, behind Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald.

What's in Rory's bag? Pro V1x, 910 D2 driver, 906 F2 fairways, new MB (712) irons, Vokey Design SM4 wedges and Scotty Cameron GSS putter.

Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the WGC - HSBC Champions with 49 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with nine.
