The clubhouse is brought to you by Titleist, the number one ball in golf.

The Pro V1 golf ball claimed six worldwide wins this past week.

First up, Brand Ambassador Garrick Higgo relied on a full bag of Titleist equipment, including the new TSi3 driver and Pro V1x golf ball to capture his second European Tour Title at the Gran Canaria Lopesan Open.

Higgo was joined in the winner’s circle by fellow Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith, who, much like the young South African, had a new Pro V1x and TSi3 driver in play en route to victory at the Zurich Classic. In fact, Smith was one of the first players to put both products in play when they arrived last year.

When asked about the golf ball, Smith said “I feel as though I can control my shots, especially those difficult, soft shots, just so much better with that new cover on there” and when combined with the new driver they “matched up perfectly together”.

Higgo and Smith were not alone either, as the #1 brand in golf was trusted by more players in the golf ball, driver, iron and wedge categories at both events on the PGA and European Tours this week.
