Adam Scott wins the EDS Byron Nelson Championship

Titleist ambassador Adam Scott captured his sixth career PGA Tournament title with a dramatic playoff victory at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. He converted a 9-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation to force a playoff, then drained a 48-foot birdie putt that traveled over two ridges on the third extra hole for the win. Adam finished regulation at 7-under 273, then parred the first two playoff holes before draining the roller coaster putt.

Trusting his Titleist equipment from tee-to-green, Scott finished among the Top 10 in Driving Distance (7th/302.6), Putts Per GIR (9th/1.696) and Greens in Regulation (T9/63.9). Sunday's win marks the 14th of Adam's career as a professional, including his second of the year. He captured the Qatar Masters on the PGA European Tour in January after firing a final round 11-under 61. He has finished among the top 25 in each of the five PGA TOUR events he has completed this season. He was forced to withdraw from the Shell Houston Open after owning the first round lead with a 63.

Titleist was the most played golf ball at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship with 107 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 21. In fact, 9 of the 12 players who finished among the top 7 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success. The victory was the 11th by a Titleist golf ball player on the 2008 PGA TOUR, more than twice the nearest competitor. In addition, Titleist was field favorite in irons sets (41), wedges (155) and putters (58), and second in drivers (42).

    The 907 driver headcovers are the only ones kept in stock inside the Titleist Tour Van. As players have come in looking for replacements for their older headcovers, they have been getting the 907D2 model.  There are no plans to bring the 907D4 driver to golf shops for consumer purchase.

    This may be irrelevant but I have seen pictures with 907D2 headcovers on players' bags when they are playing 905 drivers.  Now I am wondering if this is strictly for marketing purposes or for something else?

    And also, I was with an advisory staff member who is playing the 907D4 driver.  He let me hit it and I hit it very well.  Would there be anyway that a non-pro, non-advisory staff member would be able to buy one of these great clubs?

    The hats that you've seen Adam and our other Tour players wearing with the new Pro V1 logo treatment will hit golf shops sometime this month.

    Roy...still no decision on the AP2 2-iron. We currently have a few prototypes in play on Tour, including with Adam.  The 906F4 fairway Adam had in play at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship was 13.5°.

  5. Robert Sellman

    Adam used his Vokey Design SM56.10, which has been bumped to 55°.

  6. Robert Sellman

    The lofts on Adam's irons are the same as they were on his previous irons, which are not the stock AP2 specs. More <a href="/2008/01/28/two-weeks-two-wins-for-the-new-titleist-irons/#comment-29030" rel="nofollow">here</a>.

    Never say never, Brian.  Adam is testing a prototype AP2 2-iron. No decision has been made as to whether this will be offered as a custom option for AP2 iron orders.

    Will the hat that Adam wears (AF8-13) with the new logo Pro V1 be available to the public? If so, will all the other logos be the same? Thanks.

    Great job Adam!  What did he use from the bunker on 18 in the playoff?

  10. Robert Sellman

    Nice win for Adam, now he knows he has the confidence and the game for Sunday afternoons. Great win and great work Titleist!
