1-2-3-4 at WGC Crowns Four Win Weekend for Titleist
Posted: February 27, 2012
In an all Titleist Pro V1x golf ball final four at the WGC Accenture Matchplay Championship, Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan topped Titleist brand ambassador Rory McIlroy in the championship match, 2&1.
Despite falling four behind after 10, Rory battled back with a chip-in for eagle at the eleventh and three birdies from the 13th. But Mahan wasn't for capitulating and he fired birdies at two of those holes to match Rory and put himself in position to close out the match at the 17th. Tune back in to Team Titleist later today for a video of what's in Rory's bag!
In the match for third and fourth places, Pro V1x loyalist Mark Wilson bounced back from his semi-final defeat by Rory in the morning to triumph over fellow Pro V1x loyalist Lee Westwood.
Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the WGC Accenture Matchplay Championship with 38 players, more than four times as many as the nearest competitor.
Elsewhere, on the PGA Tour, the winner of the Mayakoba Golf Classic put his trust in the Pro V1 golf ball to see him to victory in a play-off.
Again, Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at The Mayakoba Golf Classic with 87 players, compared to 14 for the nearest competitor.
At the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore on the LPGA Tour, Pro V1 loyalist Angela Stanford emerged victorious from an all-Titleist four-way playoff.
Stanford saw off Jenny Shin (Pro V1), Shanshan Feng (Pro V1x) and Na Yeon Choi (Pro V1x) to claim her fifth LPGA title.
On the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, Pro V1x loyalist Keith Horne captured the Telkom PGA Championship by three shots - the fifth win of his Sunshine Tour career.
