Rafa Finishes Desert Swing With a Flourish
Posted: February 13, 2012
A stunning opening round of 63 was the foundation on which Rafa Cabrera-Bello's second career European Tour win was built, as he claimed a one shot victory at The Omega Dubai Desert Classic!
His nerveless and bogey free final round of 68, including three birdies on the back nine, secured the biggest win of his career-to-date and catapaulted him from 119 in the Official World Golf Rankings to 60!
To see what's in Rafa's bag, simply click on the video below:
Fellow Pro V1x players Lee Westwood and Marcel Siem finished in a tie for the runner's up spot and fourth respectively - as all four of the top spots were occupied by players putting their trust in the performance of Pro V1x.
And just a further shot back at 14-under for the tournament, two Titleist ambassadors shared a tie for fifth place with two others - Rory McIlroy followed up his second place finish in Abu Dhabi and George Coetzee continued his run of form which has seen him rise from #82 in the world at the turn of the year to #66 now!
Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic with 82 players, more than four times the nearest competitor.
On the PGA Tour, Pro V1 loyalist Charlie Wi matched the best PGA Tour finish of his career when he finished solo second in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, after leading through 54 holes. This was the fifth time Wi has finished runner up, including twice in 2011.
Titleist was also the overwhelming ball of choice at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-AM, with 106 players trusting the matchless performance of Pro V1 and Pro V1x, more than six times the nearest competitor with 16.
Titleist claimed the top four spots at the Allianz Championship on the Champions Tour, as Pro V1 loyalist Corey Pavin edged out fellow Pro V1 player Peter Senior in the first hole of a playoff to capture the title.
Elsewhere, on the Asian Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Mardan Mamat coasted to a five shot victory in the Singapore Open - the only player to shoot four consecutive sub-par rounds!
