Titleist is the #1 ball for more players and more champions across the worldwide professional tours. To date, Titleist golf ball players have recorded 117 victories around the world in 2014, compared to 27 for the nearest competitor. Since its introduction in 2000, the Pro V1 golf ball franchise has been the golf ball of choice for more than 2,000 champions worldwide.
Below is a listing of tournaments won by Titleist golf ball players on the major worldwide professional tours in 2014.
Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan capped off a week of solid play at Ridgewood Country Club by firing a final round 65 to claim a two shot victory at The Barclays. Hunter carded seven birdies and only one bogey during his final round as he jumped up the leaderboard to top off a four-round total of 14-under-par 270.
The win vaults Mahan to the top of the FedEx Cup Playoffs points list heading into the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Hunter's play this week was highlighted by a number of clutch putts but before reaching for his putter, he relied on controlling his golf ball off the tee and into the greens to set up his scoring opportunities. Helping him along the way to hitting a field-leading 80.6% of his greens in regulation this week has been Hunter's laser-focused approach to his preparation.
"I don't want to waste a shot anywhere, on the range, on the putting green, on a chipping green, on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday," said Mahan during his post-round press conference.
"It's not about putting the time in. It's about putting the right time and putting the real focus on to every shot, because I think that's what great players do. They don't waste a second of practice time when they are out on the golf course."
Great advice for all golfers. And for Hunter, the hard work certainly paid off this week.
WEEKEND HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WORLDWIDE PROFESSIONAL TOURS:
Jamie Donaldson (Pro V1x) closed with a 4-under-par 68 to overcome a two shot deficit and post a 14-under-par victory total to claim the D+D Real Czech Masters. The victory was the third of his career and also helped secure him a position on the European Ryder Cup team.
Titleist Pro V1 golf ball loyalist So Yeon Ryu fired a course record 63 in the first round of the Canadian Pacific Women's Open and she never looked back. Ryu continued her stellar play throughout the week and went on to capture a wire-to-wire victory, finishing the tournament at 23-under-par.
At the WinCo Foods Portland Open on the Web.com tour, Pro V1x loyalist Carlos Ortiz posted opening rounds of 66 and 63, propelling him to a 14-under 270 victory total. With the regular season now over on the Web.com Tour, Titleist golf ball loyalists won 13 events on the 2014 Web.com Tour, more than four times the nearest competitor with 3.
Pro V1 golf ball loyalist Scott Dunlap won the Boeing Classic on the Champions Tour after sinking a birdie putt on the first hole of a sudden death playoff. Dunlap set up his winning putt on the par-5 18th hole with an outstanding approach to the right of the pin that bounced past the hole, and then drew back downhill to within four feet. He made an easy two-putt for his first Champions Tour victory.
David Bradshaw (Pro V1x) birdied the final hole at The Great Waterway Classic to claim his first career win on PGA TOUR Canada. Bradshaw fired a final round 5-under 67 to post a 21-under victory total. The victory helped move Bradshaw to ninth place on the Canadian Tour Order of Merit with three events to go in the 2014 season.
On the KPGA Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Sang Hyun Park closed with a 4-under-par 67 to win the Vainer Championship by one shot over Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Maeng Dong Seop. Park fired a four round total of 15-under-par 269.

Picture this. It’s a beautiful day on the golf course. You’ve just split the fairway with your tee shot. You walk up to your golf ball, check the distance to the pin, do a couple of quick calculations in your head and find yourself in-between clubs.
Sound familiar? It’s a fairly common scenario on the course for many golfers, so we went out to the PGA Tour to get some advice on how to approach the next shot.
While the final execution of the shot varies from player to player, one common thread we heard from all players is that you have to take in all of the factors including pin placement, course conditions, the wind and where the trouble is before committing to the shot.
Whether you’re like Graham DeLaet and prefer to choke-up on the grip to control distance or prefer to take an aggressive approach into the ball like Jimmy Walker, the ultimate key is making a confident swing and trusting your decision.
Hunter Mahan sums it up nicely.
“You've got to go with comfort. You've got to know what feels good to you and what club you know you can get it there.”
Check out the video above for more advice from Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Lee Westwood, Matt Jones and Louis Oosthuizen and see how you can work their approach into your game.

It was a bogey-free week for Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Bernhard Langer as he rallied to win the Dick's Sporting Goods Open for his fifth Champions Tour victory of the year, and the third in his last five starts.
Langer completed the 54-hole tournament without carding a single bogey, thanks to some exceptional ball striking. Solid ball striking along with a steady dose of hitting greens in regulation have been key ingredients in Langer's recipe for success this year.
Helping him along the way to his Champions Tour leading GIR Percentage (79.63%) and Tour leading scoring average (67.90) has been the drop and stop control of his Pro V1 golf ball.
Having complete trust in golf ball performance is essential to scoring on the course and this is a great lesson for any golfer of any age, regardless of skill level.
WEEKEND HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WORLDWIDE PROFESSIONAL TOURS
On the Web.com tour, Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Martin Piller carded a final round 8-under-par 63 to claim victory at the News-Sentinel Open. The Dallas, Texas native shot a four round total of 22-under-par 262 and the win marks his third career Web.com tour title.
To round out the week's action, Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Steven Jeffress earned a four-shot win at the Fiji International on the OneAsia Tour. Jeffress used the exceptional control and aerodynamics of the Pro V1x to manage the difficult, windy conditions en route to a 10-under-par total of 278.
With another three wins this week, Titleist’s year-to-date victory count advances to 110. That's more than four times the nearest competitor with 27 and more than all competitors combined.
In total, 16,009 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in competition on the 2014 worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 2,591 and more than all competitors combined.
