Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott announced the expansion of his charity foundation to Asia on September 10. The Adam Scott Foundation Asia has been established to create a long-term sustainable organization that will support and offer opportunities to young people in Asia. Based in Singapore, it will be an extension of his foundation that was established in Australia in 2005.

"As I travel the world playing professional golf and getting to live my dream, it became apparent to me how fortunate I was to be offered the opportunity of following my chosen career path," said Scott. But not everybody has that fortune. I believe that the giving of an opportunity may be one of the greatest gifts of all. That is why I set up the Australia Foundation in 2005, and wish to expand my charity now to Asia."

The Adam Scott Foundation Asia will aim to support disadvantaged and underprivileged youth by providing opportunities to fulfill potential or overcome difficulties throughout life's journey. The Foundation will provide grants and undertake special projects in support of strong charitable organizations to promote health, lifestyle and education while drawing on the community philanthropic spirit.

Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Camilo Villegas captured the BMW Championship, the third leg of the four-event FedEx Cup Playoffs, by closing with a 2-under 68 Sunday for a two-shot victory over Titleist brand ambassador Dudley Hart. Villegas finished at 15-under 265 as both players shot all four rounds in the 60s en route to the Titleist golf ball 1-2 finish. In addition to playing the Pro V1 golf ball, the champion also relied upon Vokey Design Spin Milled approach (54), sand (58) and lob (60) wedges, and a Scotty Cameron by Titleist Circa 62 #6 putter. Titleist was the most played golf ball at the BMW Championship with 48 players (70% of field), compared to nine for the nearest competitor. Villegas' victory was the 23rd for Titleist golf ball players on the 2008 PGA TOUR, more than twice the nearest competitor with 11, and more than all other golf balls combined. Titleist was also the top choice in the wedge (54) and putter (29) categories for the week. Click on the video player below to hear what Camilo had to say after capturing his first PGA Tour victory.
