Benjamin Alvarado and Wade Ormsby Lead 2-Win Weekend for Titleist Golf Ball Players
Posted: April 9, 2013
This weekend, from Brazil to India and everywhere in between, the majority of players on the professional worldwide tours put their trust in Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.
And with another multiple win weekend, Titleist golf ball players have now combined for 37 wins on the worldwide professional tours in 2013, more than five times the nearest competitor with seven and more than all competitors combined.
Sunday's action featured breakthrough wins for Titleist Brand Ambassador Benjamin Alvarado, who posted a final round 2-under-par 69 to rally for a one-shot win at the inaugural Brasil Classic to secure his first career Web.com title, and Titleist Brand Ambassador Wade Ormsby, who closed with a 1-under 71 for a one-shot victory at the Panasonic Open in India to card his first-career win as a professional.
Here’s the Team Titleist weekend wrap-up…

WEB.COM: Brasil Classic
Winner: Titleist Brand Ambassador Benjamin Alvarado
Alvarado pulled ahead for good when he landed his second shot onto the green from 228 yards out on the par-5 17th and two-putted for the decisive birdie.
"I really had to draw the ball quite a bit to hit the green in two," said Alvarado. "My caddie said 'hit the 5-iron. You came here to win, not to finish second or third.
"I said 'OK give me the club' and I did it. I put it in the middle of the green and two-putted for birdie. It was good he pushed me to hit it. It was maybe the most important shot of my life."
With the win, Alvarado moved into second on the Web.com Tour's money list. He also became the first player from Chile to win on the Web.com Tour.
Titleist was the most relied upon golf ball in the field of 144 with 98 players, more than six times the nearest competitor with 17. Titleist also was the overwhelming top choice in the iron (50), sand, lob and approach wedge (171), and putter (51) categories.
