Record-Setting Performance at Colonial for Zach Johnson

Posted: May 31, 2010

Consistent success on the PGA Tour takes complete confidence in your equipment and total belief in yourself. Titleist Brand Ambassador Zach Johnson once again demonstrated both, trusting the Pro V1x golf ball and a bag full of Titleist equipment in his come-from-behind, record-setting performance at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Capping his seventh career win in style, Zach closed with consecutive rounds of 64 en route to his tournament record score of 21-under par. When it comes to performance excellence, shot to shot, and round to round, more of the world’s best trust their game to Titleist.

After opening up his round with a pair of birdies, the 2007 Masters champion started draining long putts on the back nine.  He birdied five of the final nine holes despite two weather delays and posted a new tournament record of 21-under 259.  The win marks the seventh career championship for the 34-year-old Johnson on the PGA Tour.  He led the field in birdies for the week with 24 and hit 84.7% of Greens in Regulation, also ranking first.  Johnson also hit 69.6% of the fairways at Colonial, tying for 10th in that category and ranked 11th in Putts per Green in Regulation (1.656). 

#1 BALL, IRON,WEDGE and PUTTER: According to the Darrell Survey, Titleist was the overwhelming GOLF BALL of choice at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with 76 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 15.  Titleist was also first in IRON SETS with 36; SAND, LOB and APPROACH WEDGES with 99; and PUTTERS with 44.  Titleist was also second in the DRIVER (31) and FAIRWAY METALS (31)categories.

I was impressed by all the Titleist action during the final round.  And a great win by Zach!

Thank you Titleist for selecting me for passes to the Crowne Plaza Colonial.  Over the four days of the tournament I was able to take family and friends out to Colonial and we had a great time everyday.  And it was cool that a Titleist player not only won, but broke the Colonial tournament record.


I'm confused.  How do you enter this contest?  Titleist has the best golf balls in the world!


Love playing Pro V1 ball.  Had a 76 the other day (Of Course from the Senior Tee's) missed my age by one, am 75.


I love titlest irons (ap2 710) and wedges and balls (pro v1)!  Go titlest!


As a fellow Iowan, I have followed Zach's career and continue to be impressed by his talent.  I think Zach will have another Major soon.  


24 birdies and confidence with every putt. Very impressive Zach and congratulations. Also glad you're getting the press and recognition you deserve. Good luck next week at the Open! and Congratulations to Titleist for another victory and dedication to the pursuit of excellence in golf.

Zach Johnson is from Iowa and so am I.  It's that good old midwest common sense to use the best in golf equipment and for us that is Titleist.
