And headlines FIVE-WIN WEEKEND for Titleist

In capturing the Shell Houston Open, Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan became the first multiple winner in 2012 on the PGA Tour, having previously taken the WGC Accenture World Matchplay back in February.

 Mahan's 16-under 272 total was built on outstanding fairway to green performance, after he hit 86.1% of Greens In Regulation for the championship - testament to the short game control and performance of the Pro V1x golf ball.

 Fellow Pro V1x loyalist Louis Oosthuizen was three shots back tied for third, while Jeff Overton (Pro V1x) and Titleist ambassador Brian Davis (Pro V1x, 910D3 driver, CB irons, Vokey Design SM4 approach and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2 putter).

Titleist Brand Ambassadors Bud Cauley (Pro V1x, 909D2 driver, 910F.d fairway metal, 910H hybrid, CB 3-iron, MB irons, Vokey Design pitching, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Studio Select putter) and Cameron Tringale (Pro V1x, 910D3 driver, 910F.d fairway metal, MB irons, Vokey Design pitching, approach, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron GSS putter) also finished in the top-10, joining two players in a tie for 8th at 11-under 277.

Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the Shell Houston Open with 96 players, six times more than the nearest competitor.

At the first major of the ladies' 2012 season, Pro V1 loyalist Sun Young Yoo ran out victorious at the Kraft Nabisco Championship after a playoff with I.K. Kim (Pro V1). The pair were deadlocked at 9-under 279, as both players finished with matching final round scores of 3-under 69.

Yoo won with a birdie at the first extra hole, converting a downhill 12-footer to secure the second LPGA victory of her career (she also won the 2010 Sybase Match Play Championship) and her first major.

World No. 1 Yani Tseng (Pro V1x) nearly joined the playoff, narrowly missing an attempt for birdie on the final hole.  She finished in solo 3rd place, while four players tied for 4th at 7-under 281, including defending champion Stacy Lewis (Pro V1x), Hee Kyung Seo (Pro V1x) and Amy Yang (Pro V1x).

Eight out of the ten players who finished in the top-10 at the Kraft Nabisco Championship trusted a Titleist golf ball for their success.

On the European Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Chris Wood fired a final round 8-under par 64 to equal the Verdura Golf Resort & Spa course record, but his 14-under 274 total was one shot shy of the Sicilian Open title. The 24-year old Wood now has six top-three finishes on the European Tour.

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Sicilian Open with 95 players placing their trust in either Pro V1 or Pro V1x, compared to 17 for the nearest competitor.

Elsewhere, on the Asian Tour, it was a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist Pro V1x players, as Digvijay Singh ended a 12 year wait to record his first Asian Tour win at the Panasonic Open India. Singh finished two shots clear of fellow Indian and Titleist Brand Ambassador Gaganjeet Bhullar (Pro V1x, AP2 irons, Vokey Design SM4 pitching, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Newport SS putter), and M. Siddikur (Pro V1x).

It was nearly the same story on the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, as Pro V1x loyalist Jake Roos held his nerve to win the Platinum Classic at the fifth extra hole of a four-man playoff - featuring Titleist ambassador Anthony Michael (Pro V1x, 910D3 driver, 910F fairway metal, 712series CB irons, Vokey Design wedges) and fellow Pro V1x loyalist Chris Swanepoel.

On the Australasian Tour, New Zealand's Mike Hendry (Pro V1x) fired four consecutive rounds in the 60's to capture the New Zealand PGA Championship, finishing on 16-under par for a two-shot victory over two players, including former Australian Amateur champion Andrew Martin (Pro V1x).  

Eight of the 11 players who finished among the top 10 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.
