It was a 1-2-3-4 finish for Titleist brand ambassadors and golf ball loyalists at the True South Classic, played at Annandale GC in Mississippi.
Scott Stallings (Pro V1x, 910D3 driver, 909F2 fairway metal, AP2 irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Studio Select putter) shot a final round 4-under 68 to capture the True South Classic by two shots over fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Jason Bohn (Pro V1x, 913D3 driver, 910Fd fairway metal, 910H hybrid, MB irons, Vokey Design SM4 pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron 350 putter).
Stallings and Bohn both shot four consecutive rounds in the 60s, with the champion posting consecutive 64s on Friday and Saturday to take a one shot lead going into Sunday.
Pro V1x loyalist Billy Horschel finished solo 3rd, four shots behind Stallings, while Titleist Brand Ambassador Bud Cauley (Pro V1x, 913D2, 910Fd fairway metal, 910H hybrid, MB irons/CB iron, Vokey Design Spin Milled pitching, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport putter), was alone in 4th, another shot back.
Half of the 24 players who played a Titleist driver in the True South Classic field relied upon new 913 prototype models, including runner-up Jason Bohn (913D3), Bud Cauley (913D2/4th), and Chris Kirk (913D3/T10). Titleist was the top choice of more players in the True South field of 131 in the golf ball category with 84, six times the nearest competitor with 14.
Meanwhile, at the Open Championship, it was heartbreak for Titleist ambassador Adam Scott as he posted a runner-up finish at the Open Championship, one shot shy of forcing a playoff.
Speaking after, Scott said, "I'm pretty disappointed. I had it in my hands and managed to hit a poor shot at each of the closing four holes.
"I'm very, very disappointed, but I played so beautifully for most of the week I certainly should not let this get me down."
Titleist golf ball loyalist and World No. 1 Luke Donald tied for 5th place.
Titleist golf ball loyalists accounted for 86 players in the 156-player British Open field, more than four times the nearest competitor with 19.
