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.

Following last week’s BMW PGA Championship played in stunning English sunshine at Wentworth (yes, you did read that right, we had sunshine in England!!) the European Tour heads to the equally sunny climes of the Spanish capital for the Madrid Masters. A number of players arrived in Madrid via Walton Heath Golf Club for 36-holes of U.S Open qualifying on Monday and, as you can imagine, this meant a relatively relaxed practice schedule for many. As is the norm on the European Tour, the Wednesday before the event saw the players assemble for the Pro-Am competition. Each week on the European Tour the Pro-Am competitions attract a sprinkling of celebrities and this week was no different. With the tournament being held in the home of the world famous Real Madrid Football Club a couple of first team players from ‘Los Blancos’ teed it up for the Wednesday Pro-Am.
