Titleist’s longest standing success story continued last week as their legendary Pro V1 franchise claimed its 65th consecutive year as the number one ball at the US Open.
The 2013 staging of the event at Merion saw 97 players choosing to tee up a Titleist, compared to 23 for the nearest competitor.
It adds to Titleist’s 2013 success, which has already seen 67 wins across the worldwide professional tours, compared to 20 for the nearest competitor.
Last year’s US Open saw Titleist staffer Webb Simpson crowned champion at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. Simpson trusted a Pro V1x for his success, as well as a full bag of Titleist equipment to storm through the field from six shots behind.
Simpson’s victory twelve months ago was part of a Titleist’s triple major success last year, following wins at The Masters for Bubba Watson and Rory McIlroy at the USPGA Championship.
This year’s first Major championship marked another victory for a Titleist Brand Ambassador, with Adam Scott putting his trust in the feel and control of the new 2013 Pro V1 to emerge victorious at The Masters on the second hole of a sudden death playoff against Pro V1x loyalist Angel Cabrera.
Joining Simpson and Scott at this years’ US Open were a host of Titleist golf ball loyalists, including Matteo Manassero (Pro V1x) who claimed the biggest win of his career at the BMW PGA Championship, plus Jamie Donaldson (Pro V1) and Marcel Siem (Pro V1x) who have also been victorious on the European Tour this season.
Joining these players in their quest to claim a maiden major championship were Pro V1x loyalists Michael Thompson, Kevin Streelman, D.A. Points and Billy Horschel, all of whom have won titles on the PGA Tour in 2013.
