 Early Monday morning at The Barclays, long before any players had arrived for the start of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the only sounds heard in the locker room at at Plainfield (N.J.) Country Club were from the opening and closing of lockers.

It was delivery time for the new Prototype Titleist Vokey Design SM4 wedges, signaling the official start of the seeding and tour validation process critical to the development of all Titleist golf equipment.

"It was a great surprise today when I opened the locker and I saw three new wedges in there," said Titleist Brand Ambassador Robert Karlsson.

Later in the day, Karlsson spent about 45 minutes on the range with Master Craftsman Bob Vokey, testing the new Prototype SM4 wedges and giving Bob feedback on the new SM4 groove technology with three additional scoring lines.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings hadn't planned on going to the course Monday until he found out what was waiting for him in his locker.

"I wanted to try out the new wedges," Scott said. "I couldn't wait."

 Confirming perhaps the most consistent season of any player on the 2011 PGA Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson pulled away late Sunday at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., to win the Wyndham Championship for his first PGA Tour victory.

Trusting a Pro V1x golf ball and a bag full of Titleist equipment, Simpson closed with a bogey-free 3-under 67 for an 18-under 262 total and three-shot victory, one of three wins by Titleist golf ball players last weekend across the worldwide professional tours.

It marked the 26th win for Titleist golf ball players on the 2011 PGA Tour, nearly nine times the nearest competitor with three and more than two times all other golf balls combined.

 Simpson, 26, also became the 12th different Titleist Brand Ambassador to find the winner's circle this season on the PGA Tour: Steve Stricker (2), Nick Watney (2), Adam Scott, Scott Piercy, Johnson Wagner, Gary Woodland, Brendan Steele, Harrison Frazar, Rory McIlroy, Chris Kirk and Scott Stallings.

"I never thought that winning on the PGA Tour would be this hard, all the pressure and everything that goes on to win a golf tournament," said Simpson, a native of Raleigh, N.C., who made 17 birdies and three eagles over the 72 holes, posting rounds of 66-65-64-67.

"But I'm extremely pleased and I really love the way I finished today."

Simpson, who rolled his Pro V1x in for consecutive birdies on Nos. 15 and 16 to close out the victory, has finished well all year. He's recorded 15 top-25 finishes, including a pair of runner-ups at the Transitions Championship and Zurich Classic of New Orleans, and seven top-10s.

The win moved Simpson to No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Playoffs standings, just behind fellow Titleist Brand Ambassadors Nick Watney (1) and Steve Stricker (2), with the playoffs beginning this week at The Barclays.

He's also currently No. 1 in the PGA Tour's All-Around Ranking statistic, fourth in Scoring Average (69.39) and second in birdie average (4.20).

Two weeks ago at the PGA Championship, Simpson spoke to Team Titleist about his success this season.

"To see the results of hard work is really satisfying. It's fun to look at the stats and see where I'm at, but we've got five or six more tournaments here to end the year and I want to get a 'W,' " he said. "So I'm looking forward to that."

Simpson was one 105 players at the Wyndham that trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, seven times the nearest competitor with 15 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist also was first in iron sets (43), including 27 sets of new Prototype TItleist 712 series irons;  sand, lob and approach wedges(131); and putters (58).

 • NATIONWIDE TOUR: Pro V1x loyalist James Nitties cruised to a five-shot victory at the Midwest Classic to earn his first Nationwide Tour victory.

Nitties shot rounds of 65-63-65-65 at the Nicklaus Golf Club in Overland Park, Kan., to finish at 26-under 258, breaking the tournament scoring record by six shots.

He rolled his Pro V1x golf ball in for 30 birdies over the 72 holes, including a 20-footer on No. 18.

"When that putt goes in, you feel like it's your week," Nitties told PGA Tour.com. "You have lead and the putt goes in. You feel like you're destined to win."

With the win, Nitties jumped from No. 63 to No. 12 on the Nationwide Tour money list. The top 25 players at the end of the season earn 2012 PGA Tour cards.

Nitties was one 106 players in the field that played a Titleist golf ball, more than six times the nearest competitor with 17 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist also was first in iron sets (45); sand, lob and approach wedges (142); and putters (64).

• CANADIAN TOUR: Pro V1x loyalist Brian Unk earned his second Seaforth (Ontario) Country Classic title in three years, closing with a 5-under 65 for a one-shot victory.

Unk shot rounds of 66-64-65-65 to finish at 20-under-par 260, making just one bogey the entire tournament.

"This win ranks right up there and really validates the hard work I have been putting into my game," said Unk. "All the hours on the range and being away from the family seems to have paid off this week."

Friesen, 34, rolled his Pro V1x golf ball in for three birdies over his final three holes Sunday at Highland Springs Country Club (Springfield, Mo.) to finish off a bogey-free final-round 8-under 64 for a 26-under 262 total and five-shot victory.

"It's been a magical week. I feel like I belong," Friesen told PGATour.com.
