Charges up the leaderboard, roars echoing through the loblolly pines and drama around every turn. Once again, Sunday at The Masters did not disappoint. And when it was all said and done, it was a Titleist golf ball 1-2-3 finish at the Masters, with the champion relying upon a Pro V1 golf ball en route to his first career major championship.
The winner opened the tournament by firing three consecutive rounds in the 60’s. He closed with a 1-under 71 to finish on 15-under 273, one shot clear of runner-up Rickie Fowler (Pro V1).
Fowler, who started Sunday five shots back, posted a final round 5-under par 67, including a birdie on the 72nd hole to finish solo 2nd.
Authoring one of the most impressive Sunday charges in recent Masters history, Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth began the day nine shots behind the leader, and recorded the lowest round of the day with a sizzling 8-under par 64. He finished solo 3rd, one shot behind Fowler and two behind the winner.
Rounding out the top of the leaderboard, seven of the 11 players who finished among the top 10 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Cam Smith and golf ball loyalists Henrik Stenson (Pro V1) and Bubba Watson (Pro V1x) were among four players who tied for 5th.
In addition, 16 out of the 23 players who finished among the top 20 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls.
