Brand Ambassadors Lead The Way For Titleist Six-Win Weekend
Posted: February 20, 2012
This was a standout weekend for Titleist brand ambassadors, as they recorded wins on the European Tour, the PGA Tour, the PGA of Australasia Tour and the Sunshine Tour – a feat boosted still further by victories for Titleist ball loyalists on the LPGA and Champions Tours!
Titleist staffer Jbe Kruger shot a final round 3-under 69 to secure victory in confident style at the Avantha Masters in New Delhi on the European Tour. Kruger’s 14-under total put him two shots clear of Pro V1x loyalist Marcel Siem and one other. This was Jbe's first win on the European Tour, building on his previous best third position at the 2010 Africa Open and continuing the momentum from his 9th place finish at the Joburg Open this season.
The 25-year old South African becomes the 399th different winner on the European Tour and moves to 109th in the Official Golf World Rankings.

Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the Avantha Masters with 87 players, compared to 17 for the nearest competitor.
Following up on his FedEx Cup title last year, Titleist brand ambassador Bill Haas relied on the Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist clubs to secure victory in dramatic style at the Northern Open on the PGA Tour.
After closing with a 7-under 277 total, Haas rolled in a 45-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a three-way playoff to capture his fourth PGA Tour title at the famed Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles.
In doing so, Haas advanced to No.12 in the world and has now recorded at least one PGA TOUR event in each of the last three years.
What's in Bill Haas' Titleist Bag?: Pro V1x golf ball, 910D2 (8.5) driver, 910F (13.5) fairway metal, CB (2-P) irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled sand (54) and lob (60) wedges, Scotty Cameron Kombi long putter.
Elsewhere, staffer Gareth Paddison (Pro V1, 910D2 driver, 910F fairway metal, 910H hybrid, CB irons, Vokey Design wedges, Scotty Cameron putter) won the Victorian PGA Championship this weekend on the PGA of Australasia Tour.
His 7-under total was enough to edge Pro V1x loyalist Leighton Lyle by one shot. It also sends Paddison off to defend his Queensland PGA Championship title in confident mood.
Oliver Bekker (Pro V1x, 910D3 driver, 910F fairway metal, MB irons, Vokey Design wedges, Scotty Cameron putter) captured his maiden Sunshine Tour victory when he fired a final round 2-under 70 to capture the Dimension Data Pro-Am.
The Titleist brand ambassador finished two shots clear of fellow Titleist brand ambassador Tyrone Ferreira (Pro V1x, 910D2 driver, 910F fairway metal, CB irons, Vokey Design wedges) and Pro V1x loyalist Thomas Aiken.
The six win weekend was topped off when Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng successfully defended her Honda LPGA Thailand title for her first win of the year and fellow Pro V1x loyalist Kenny Perry captured his second career Champions Tour title, cruising to a five-shot win at the ACE Group Classic.
