Pride and patriotism are on the line this week In Chicago at the 2012 Ryder Cup. From tee to green, captains will be expecting strong performances out of their players so they can hoist the cup. In turn, players will expect even more out of their golf balls and golf clubs. And this week at Medinah, more players will trust Vokey wedges than any other brand.

The Vokey team has been hard at work, crafting something very special for the Vokey loyalists on both the European and US teams.  For the US team, Bob and his team of WedgeWorks craftsman laser etched the US Flag on the back of a Vokey  TVD Black Oxide wedge, custom engraved their names, and finished the wedge with a special US team Dynamic Gold shaft and patriot grip.  The European team wedges feature a laser etched EU flag, blue and yellow paintfill, the Euro team Dynamic Gold shaft and a Vokey VDR blue and gold grip.

To celebrate the playing of the Ryder Cup, Team Titleist is giving away one of these custom, commemorative Vokey wedges.

Pro V1x loyalist Stacy Lewis captured her third LPGA Tour title of the year on Sunday, winning the Navistar LPGA Classic to lead a five-win week for Titleist golf ball players. Lewis, 27, fired a 3-under 69 in the final round, good for an 18-under 270 and a two-shot margin of victory. The win marks her second win this year in the State of Alabama (Lewis won the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic victory in April, as well the ShopRite LPGA Classic in June.)


Once the final putt fell, Lewis told reporters that "winning never gets easier", but recently the 27-year-old Texan has exhibited a keen ability to close out tournaments.

“I was definitely a lot more comfortable coming down the stretch knowing that I could hit the shots and knowing how to handle my nerves and knowing that I'm going to hit a drive probably 300 yards on the last hole, and just knowing how your body reacts to the pressure I think helps you a lot.”

Lewis demonstrated consistent play throughout the bag at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trails, highlighted by 86% of greens hit in regulation and a 28.75 putts per round average. Much of her success can be attributed to her evolving outlook and perspective.

“I'm not a person defined by my success,” Lewis said. “I just love playing golf, and if I play pretty well, it's just a bonus.”

With the win, Lewis moves up to the No. 2 spot on the Rolex Rankings, behind fellow Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng. She also takes the lead in the Rolex Player of the Year Points standings, followed closely by Pro V1 loyalist Jiyai Shin.

Angela Stanford, Mi Jung Hur and Haeji Kang all trusted a Pro V1 golf ball to share 3rd place at 15-under 273. Beatriz Recari (Pro V1) finished a further shot back, tied for sixth.

Of the ten players who finished tied for 8th or better at the event, seven relied on a Titleist golf ball. Titleist was the most played golf ball at the Navistar LPGA Classic with 101 players, more than nine times the nearest competitor and more than all competing brands combined.

WEB.COM: On Sunday, Luke Guthrie (Pro V1x) charged from five strokes back to win his second Web.com Tour event in as many weeks, firing a final round 6-under 66 to finish on top at the WNB Golf Classic.

With a clutch par-saving, 12-foot putt on the last, Guthrie posted a 17-under 271 total, one shot clear of two players, including Pro V1 loyalist Cameron Percy. Guthrie, who won last week's Albertson's Boise Open, now vaults to the No. 1 spot on the Web.com money list with five events remaining.

"I'm just trying to ride it out," Guthrie said, referring to his current hot streak. "As a golfer you go through these runs where the hole gets bigger, your mind slows down and it seems easy. The trick in golf is have more days like this than the bad ones."

Since the first of his seven Web.com starts in late July, the 22-year-old Guthrie has posted six top-10 finishes that include two wins, a playoff runner-up, a T3, T6, and a T10 He also played in three 2012 PGA TOUR events finishing T19, T5 and T18, all while splitting time, finishing up his work towards a business degree at the University of Illinois.

Guthrie becomes the second player to win in back-to-back weeks this year, joining Titleist Brand Ambassador Ben Kohles, who won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational and the Cox Classic in successive weeks.

In driving wind and rain at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, a steady Jiyai Shin relied on her Titleist Pro V1 golf ball to win the Ricoh Women’s British Open by nine strokes and lead a seven-win week for Titleist golf ball players around the world.

“It was a long, long, very tough day... But I just keep focus on my shot, each single shot.  And then when I made the winning putt, it feels like, oh, my God, I was so excited.”

A windy Friday delayed the second round until Saturday, when Shin fired a new women’s course record with an 8-under par 64. The nine-shot victory sets a new record for the history of the event, bettering the previous margin by four shots.

“I think this course is made for me.  My shot was great this week from last week.  So I have a great confidence about here and then I have a great memory with this tournament, so always when I come to the British Open, I really enjoy by myself and it helped my game today.”

The win, which comes a week after capturing the Kingsmill Championship in a nine-hole playoff, is her ninth in less than five seasons on the LPGA Tour.

Of the 144-player field, 100 players trusted Titleist golf balls in pursuit of the season’s final major championship at the Ricoh Women’s British Open, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 13.

The 22-year old posted a tournament-record winning score of 22-under 262 in capturing his first career win as a professional. Four players shared second place, including Titleist golf ball loyalists Richard H. Lee (Pro V1), Scott Gardiner (Pro V1x) and Steve Wheatcroft (Pro V1x).

Prior to his win in Idaho, Guthrie had been knocking at the door all season long, notching 5 top-10 finishes in his six starts. Guthrie explained that a change in his approach helped to get him over the hump in the final round.

"One of my main goals today was just to have fun," he said. "I kind of shot myself in the foot a few times just being too uptight and wanting it too bad and worrying about where this might put me on the money list. That's all kind of irrelevant once you tee it up."

With the victory, Guthrie advances to No. 4 on the Web.com money list. With six events remaining on the Web.com Tour schedul, Guthrie has made certain that he will earn his 2013 PGA Tour card.

Bhullar shot rounds of 66-69-69 in difficult conditions following typhoon conditions that struck the venue on the second and third days, eventually requiring that the contest be shortened to 54 holes.
