It was a bogey-free week for Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Bernhard Langer as he rallied to win the Dick's Sporting Goods Open for his fifth Champions Tour victory of the year, and the third in his last five starts.
Langer completed the 54-hole tournament without carding a single bogey, thanks to some exceptional ball striking. Solid ball striking along with a steady dose of hitting greens in regulation have been key ingredients in Langer's recipe for success this year.
Helping him along the way to his Champions Tour leading GIR Percentage (79.63%) and Tour leading scoring average (67.90) has been the drop and stop control of his Pro V1 golf ball.
Having complete trust in golf ball performance is essential to scoring on the course and this is a great lesson for any golfer of any age, regardless of skill level.

To round out the week's action, Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Steven Jeffress earned a four-shot win at the Fiji International on the OneAsia Tour. Jeffress used the exceptional control and aerodynamics of the Pro V1x to manage the difficult, windy conditions en route to a 10-under-par total of 278.
