It was a worldwide sweep for Titleist golf ball loyalists this weekend, as Ian Poulter, Tom Lehman, Stacy Lewis and Doug McGuigan all stood atop their respective leaderboards on Sunday! The four wins bring the 2012 Titleist victory total to 170, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 21. 

WGC: Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Ian Poulter closed with a 7-under par 65 to rally from four strokes back to win the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shenzhen, China.

Poulter carded eight birdies in the final round to finish with a 21-under 267 victory total, two shots clear of four players, including Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jason Dufner (Pro V1, 910D2 driver, 913Fd fairway metal, 906F2 fairway metal, 913H hybrid, AP2 irons, Vokey Design SM4 sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron putter) and Scott Piercy (Pro V1x, 910D2 driver, 913Fd fairway metal, 690MB/AP2 irons, Vokey Design SM pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo putter). 

The win was Poulter's second World Golf Championship victory and the 14th of his professional career. Third round co-leaders and fellow Pro V1x loyalists, Lee Westwood and Louis Oosthuizen, shot identical final round scores of even par 72 to finish in a tie for sixth place. 

Titleist Brand Ambassadors Adam Scott (New Pro V1 prototype golf ball, 910D3 driver, 910Fd fairway metal, 712U prototype 2-iron, MB irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled pitching, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Kombi Long putter) and Bill Haas (Pro V1x, 913D2 driver, 913F fairway metal, 913Hd hybrid, CB irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Tour Rat putter) finished solo eighth and 10th, respectively, as 7 of the top 10 finishers relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.

Scott was playing the new Pro V1 prototype golf ball and 712U prototype 2-iron for the first time in competition.

Titleist was the most played golf ball with 46 players in the field of 78, more than four times the nearest competitor with 10.

LPGA: Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Stacy Lewis fired a final round 8-under par 64 en route to a one-shot win at the Mizuno Classic. Lewis, who was seven shots back to start the day, finished with an 11-under par 205 victory total for her fourth win of the season and the fifth of her career. 

Lewis edged second-round leader and Pro V1 loyalist Bo-Mee Lee, who closed with an even-par 72, while women's world No. 1 and Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng posted a final round 68 to finish solo fourth at 7-under 209.

Titleist was the most played golf ball with 38 players, nearly three times the nearest competitor with 13.

CHAMPIONS: Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Tom Lehman captured the Charles Schwab Cup Championship to become the first player to win the season-long points title two straight years. After taking a one-stroke lead into the final round, Lehman birdied four of the last five holes to close with a 5-under 65 and a six-stroke win. His 22-under 258 total broke the tournament mark for lowest score and tied the record in relation to par.

Lehman's win marks the 17th for Titleist golf ball players over the 23-event schedule on the 2012 Champions Tour (74%), more than eight times the nearest competitor with 2. 

Titleist ambassador Jay Haas (Pro V1, 910D2 driver, 910F fairway metal, 910H hybrid, 909H hybrid, CB irons, Vokey Design SM4 sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Studio Design putter), who closed with a 69 to shoot four consecutive rounds in the 60's, finished solo second. Haas matched the Champions Tour record with a second round 10-under par 60, which also broke the course record on Desert Mountain's Cochise layout.

Fellow Titleist ambassador Jay Don Blake (Pro V1x, 910F fairway metal, 910H hybrid, AP2 irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Newport Select putter), the defending champion and first-round leader after opening with a 64, finished solo third, as Titleist golf ball loyalists posted a 1-2-3 finish in the season finale.

Of 30 players in the exclusive field, 23 teed up a Titleist, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 3. 

SOUTH AFRICA: Pro V1x loyalist Doug McGuigan earned his sixth career win in South Africa, posting a 1-up victory in the 18-hole final of the ISPS Handa Match Play Championship. The event was the first utilising the match play format on the Sunshine Tour schedule in 25 years. Of the 112 players who went head-to-head this week, 82 (73%) relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success, more than three times the nearest competitor with 25.

ASIA-PACIFIC AMATEUR: In the field of 120 at the Asia-Pacific Amateur, 94 players (78%), including the 14-year old winner (Pro V1x), relied upon a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball. 

Welcome to........

This week it was onto Shenzen in China and the Mission Hills Golf Club for the WGC HSBC Champions event.

With 12 courses to choose from, this week's tournament is being played over the Olazabal course, which at 7,251 yards and a par of 72 is under attack by the players.

The key should be close approach play and putting, as the greens are firm, generally quite small and running to 11'6" on the Stimpmeter.

After round two, it is Pro V1x loyalist Louis Oosthuizen who is leading the way at -16, some five shots clear of those tied for second which includes Titleist ambassador Adam Scott. A further shot back at -10 is fellow Titleist ambassador Jason Dufner.

It should be an interesting weekend of golf!
