Adam Scott Delivers Signature Performance in TOUR Championship Victory.

Fairhaven, MA (November 6, 2006) - Showcasing the talent and poise that have made him one of golf's most formidable players, Adam Scott capped the PGA Tour season in style with a three-shot victory at The TOUR Championship.  Trusting his Pro V1 golf ball and a bag full of Titleist equipment, Scott was the only player to fire four consecutive rounds in the 60s, finishing at 11-under 269.  It was the fourth career PGA TOUR victory, and the 10th as a professional for Scott, who rose to third on the final 2006 PGA TOUR Money List.

It was a strong finish for both Scott and Titleist, as 10 of the top 13 finishers, and more than 70 percent of the world-class TOUR Championship field, teed up a Titleist golf ball at the season-ending event.  Scott's win marks the 150th worldwide golf ball victory for Titleist in 2006, compared to 27 for the nearest competitor.  It was the 24th victory by Titleist players on the 2006 PGA TOUR, more than all other golf balls combined.
