The win total continues to tower skyward for Titleist golf ball players as this week, four players on three different continents stepped into the winner's circle.
All told, players trusting their games to a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball have now accumulated 198 wins across the worldwide professional tours during the 2018 season. That's more six times more wins than the nearest competing brand with just 33 and more than all competing brands combined.
Let’s take a look at this past week’s Titleist tour highlights…
In Australia this weekend, Jordan Zunic (Pro V1x) won The Isuzu Queensland Open by one shot over Rhein Gibson (Pro V1).
The win was the third of Zunic’s career on the PGA Tour of Australasia. He previously captured the New Zealand Open (2015) and Northern Territory PGA Championship (2016).
Zunic put himself in position for the win following a third round 6-under-par 65 giving him a five-shot overnight lead.
Ten of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.
Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice among players with 77% of the Queensland Open field (101 players in the field of 131) trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 10% (13 players) and more than all competitors combined.
