Titleist is the #1 ball for more players and more champions across the worldwide professional tours. In fact, in 2011, Titleist golf ball players have already recorded 38 victories around the world, compared to 8 for the nearest competitor. Since the introduction of the Pro V1 in 2000, the golf ball franchise has been the golf ball of choice for more than 1,500 champions worldwide.

On the Asian Tour, as well as the Sail Open and Indonesian Masters, the Avantha Masters and the Maybank Malaysian Open were both co-sanctioned with the European Tour, thus meaning that a Titleist Brand Ambassador has won 4 of the 5 events played so far this season.

Below is a listing of tournaments won by Titleist golf ball players on the major worldwide professional tours in 2011.

The Asian and European Tour's head to Korea this week for the Ballantines Championship at Blackstone Resort in Seoul. Our Titleist Tour Rep's have been on hand all week making sure all the Titleist Brand Ambassadors are geared up and ready to go. This will be the third event in as many weeks in Asia for the European Tour before heading back to Europe for the Open de Espana next week. With a star studded field, this should prove to be a great. event. Check out our slideshow from early in the week below.

 The Korean Titleist Tour Van where all your Titleist dreams come true.

 
Asian Tour - Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Lee Westwood shot 4 rounds in the 60’s to win the Indonesian Masters at The Royale Jakarta Golf Club over the weekend to regain his spot as the worlds number 1 golfer on his 38th Birthday.
 
Westwood, who had a 5 shot lead going into the final day, was forced to wait to secure his victory on the 18th due to a thunder storm. Coming back out after an hour long wait, Westwood played a superb second shot into the 18th green, commenting on camera that all good things come to those that wait.
 
A final hole par completed a 69 for Westwood, winning the tournament by 3 shots. Westwood had a slow start to the day, allowing the field to close the gap, but made a difficult birdie putt on 11 to give his round some momentum.
 
“Yeah, that was probably the hardest putt I had all day. It was 15 feet and had a three foot break on it. I birdied the next with two good shots and played solidly. I managed to pick up a few shots and birdied the 16th from four feet. I was quite comfortable after that,” said Westwood.
 
Up on completing his victory, Westwood had not yet secured the number one spot, and had to wait to see how Pro V1 X Loyalist Luke Donald did at the Heritage.
 
 “It was about coming here this week and trying to win the Indonesian Masters and I’ve done that. I’ve ticked every box this week so we will have to wait and see what happens.” said Westwood.
 
Donald lost in a playoff early this morning, thus ensuring Westwoods win was enough to secure the number 1 spot.
 
Titleist Full Line Ambassador Marcus Both (Pro V1x, AP2 irons, Vokey Design Pitching, Sand and Lob Wedges and Scotty Cameron SS Newport Putter) shot a final round 69 to finish joint 3rd along side Pro V1X loyalists Siddikur, Thitiphun Chuayprakong and Hyun Bin Park.
 
Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 103 players trusting a Titleist golf ball, more than 5 times the nearest competitor.
 
Be sure to check out our final Slideshow from the event at the bottom of this post.
 
 

 
 One Asia/European TourTitleist Pro V1x Loyalist  Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium won the Co-Sanctioned European and One Asia Tour Volvo China Open at the Luxehills Golf Course.
 
Colsaerts shot 4 rounds in the 60’s (65, 67, 66, 66) for a 24 under 264 total winning by 4 shots to become the second Belgian to win on the European Tour. The win takes Colsaerts to 10th on the Race to Dubai.
 
Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Volvo China Open with 109 players trusting Titleist, more than five times our closest competitor. Titleist was also first in iron sets (55) and sand, lob and approach wedges (155).
 
The event was the second of 3 Co-Sanctioned European Tour events in Asia, with the Ballantines Championships in Korea this week being the last before the Tour heads back to Europe for the Open de Espana. This has been a great period for Titleist players so far, so let's hope it continues next week. Be sure to check Team Titleist regularly for updates on this event.
 

 

PGA TourPro V1x Loyalist Luke Donald lost in a playoff on Sunday at The Heritage at Harbour Town Links. A win would have seen Donald secure the World Number 1 spot, but a difficult lie in a bunker on 18 during the second playoff hole, meant that Donald could only manage a bogey.
 
Donald saved difficult pars on the 71st and 72nd holes to force the playoff. Despite not claiming the world number 1 spot, his second place finish was enough to take Donald to 1st on the PGA Tour Money List for 2011 and he moved to 2nd in the Fed Ex Cup Rankings.
 
Titleist was the overewhelming Golf Ball of choice at the Heritage with 83 players trusting Titleist, nearly six times the closest competitor. Titleist was also first in iron sets (37), sand, lob and approach wedges (122) and putters (48).
 
Champions Tour - Pro V1 Loyalist David Eger's team won the Liberty Mutual Legends of golf better ball competition, beating Pro V1x Loyalist's Kenny Perry and Scott Hoch in a playoff.
 
Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 45 players trusting Titleist, more than 5 times the nearest competitor. Titleist was also first in iron sets with 19 players choosing Titleist irons.
 
Japan Tour - Titleist was also the ball of choice at the Tsuruya Open on the Japan Golf Tour, with 65 players, more than double the nearest competitor, trusting Titleist golf balls. Titleist was also first in Hybrids (41) and sand, lob and approach wedges (112).
