GREAT EXPECTATIONS. AND EVEN GREATER PERFORMANCE WITH TITLEIST.

Adam Scott Relies Upon Full Bag of Titleist Equipment to Capture Scandinavian Masters. Titleist Golf Balls Post a Five-Win Week Across the Worldwide Professional Tours.

Fairhaven, MA (August 4, 2003) – There were high expectations placed on Adam Scott when he turned professional just three years ago at age 19. Both his own and the golf world's. Adam continues to turn expectations into performance, capturing the Scandinavian Masters by two strokes for his fourth career PGA European Tour title. Like all great champions, he can close. In each of his victories, Adam has either owned or shared the lead entering the final round. And like most great champions, he places his trust in Titleist. Relying upon the Pro V1x and a full bag of Titleist clubs, Adam's win was one of five across the worldwide professional tours for Titleist golf balls this week and marks the 15th for Titleist on the 2003 PGA European Tour, more than all other golf balls combined. From tee-to-green, Scott plays the new Titleist Titanium 983K (8.5) driver, Titleist PT (15.0) fairway metal, Titleist Forged irons (2-PW), Vokey Design sand and lob wedges and a Scotty Cameron by Titleist Newport putter.

Titleist Highlights for Week Ending August 3, 2003

Champions Tour: Native New Englander Allen Doyle celebrated his homecoming by firing a final round 4-under par 67 to capture the FleetBoston Classic by three shots. Doyle’s victory is his first of the year and the eighth of his career on the senior circuit. Doyle, who relies upon the New Pro V1, is the 15th champion to trust Titleist in victory. He secured the lead on Saturday when he established a new 18-hole tournament record of 8-under par 63. Doyle had posted 11 top-10 finishes this year before breaking into the winner’s circle on Sunday.

Nationwide Tour: Full line Titleist player Jason Bohn fired a final round 8-under par 64, including a birdie on the par 5 18th hole, to capture the inaugural Chattanooga Classic in come-from-behind fashion. Bohn rallied from three strokes behind to earn a one-stroke victory, the first of his career on the Nationwide Tour. Like Adam Scott, Bohn relies upon the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist equipment for his success. Bohn’s bag includes a Titleist Titanium 983K driver, Titleist Forged 690MB irons, Vokey Design sand and lob wedges, and a Scotty Cameron by Titleist Newport Beach putter. Bohn had already made golf history when he shot a 58 on the Canadian Tour.

Japan Golf Tour: Titleist Pro V1 player Taichi Teshima captured the Aiful Cup with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff. He posted a final round 4-under par 68 to force the playoff. It marked the fourth victory for Titleist on the 2003 Japan Golf Tour. Titleist also has been the most played golf ball at every event this year. The winner also relied upon a Scotty Cameron by Titleist putter for his success on the greens.

Canadian PGA Tour: A Titleist Pro V1x golf ball, Titleist Titanium driver and Vokey Design wedges were in the bag of the 19-year old who became the first amateur to win a Canadian Tour event since 1996 by capturing the Greater Vancouver Classic. Rookie Nathan Fritz, a full-line Titleist brand player, and Pro V1 player Mark Johnson tied for second at 14-under, giving Titleist a 1-2-3 sweep. The victory is Titleist's 7th on the 2003 Canadian PGA Tour.

Five more wins this week increases Titleist’s victory total on the 2003 worldwide professional tours to 92, more than all other golf balls combined.

Other Tour Notes: At the PGA Tour’s Buick Open, the champion relied upon a Titleist Titanium 983K driver and Vokey Design wedges in his second victory of the year. He played the same combination of Titleist equipment in his victory at the U.S. Open in June. It is the third consecutive week in which a Titleist Titanium 983 driver has been played to win on the PGA Tour, beginning with the Ben Curtis at the British Open followed by Peter Jacobsen at the Greater Hartford Open. Titleist Titanium 983 drivers have been the choice of a PGA Tour-leading 12 champions this year.
