Last week, Titleist golf ball loyalist Daniel Gavins and Pajaree Anannarukarn placed their trust in the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls to capture their maiden European and LPGA Tour victories at the ISPS Handa World Invitational.

Not only this, but the #1 brand in golf was the most played golf ball, driver, fairway, hybrid, utility iron, iron and wedge at Galgorm Resort.

Elsewhere, there was Olympic success for Rory Sabatini who trusted his 2021 Pro V1 golf ball to an Olympic record 10-under 61 Sunday at Kasumigaseki Country Club’s East Course. The winner of the Olympic Men’s Golf Competition played a pair of Vokey Design wedges in capturing the gold medal for the United States.
