Titleist is celebrating after completing a clean sweep as the number one ball at all four of 2014's Major Championships
Titleist is celebrating after completing a clean sweep as the number one ball at all four of 2014's Major Championships.
Last week at Valhalla Golf Club, where Rory McIlroy triumphed in thrilling fashion, more than half the field used Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf balls.
Indeed, 81 golfers in the 156-strong field used Titleist, as compared to 26 for the nearest competitor.
Last month, Titleist was the number one ball at the Open Championship - as it has been since records began - and in June, the brand celebrate its 66th consecutive year as the ball of choice at the US Open.
It isn't only in golf's biggest tournaments where Titleist golf balls enjoy so much success, though.
So far this year, 15,441 players across worldwide professional tours have used Titleist, more than six times more than the nearest competitor (2,530).
What's more, the Pro V1 Franchise has been the ball of choice in 2014's prestigious amateur championships, including The Amateur Championship, Lytham Trophy and St Andrews Links Trophy.
