Titleist on top at the old course as Oosthuizen takes control to claim 139th open championship. Seven stroke Open Championship victory for Pro V1 player Louis Oosthuizen as Titleist is the #1 ball for 31st consecutive year.


South African Louis Oosthuizen (Pro V1x) claimed the 139th Open Championship around the Old Course St. Andrews in a marvellous display of controlled and precision golf. The Pro V1x loyalist claimed the coveted Claret Jug by seven strokes from fellow Pro V1x player Lee Westwood, shooting a near flawless 71 to finish with a 272 total. The 27 year old became the fourth South African to claim the Open Championship by increasing his overnight 4 shot lead to an unassailable 7 stroke winning margin, the second highest winning margin ever in Championship history.


In a week that saw the most accomplished field in world golf gather to compete around the most recognisable golf course in the world, Titleist was the most resounding choice of golf ball with 90 players from a field of 156 choosing either Pro V1 or Pro V1x. The impressive tally of Titleist loyalists shadowed the nearest competitor (20) with more than four times their total and more than all other golf balls combined, ensuring that Titleist was the #1 ball at The Open Championships for the 31st consecutive year.


At the top of the leaderboard, Oosthuizen and Westwood were joined by fellow Pro V1x players Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson in the top five. Full line Titleist player McIlory recovered impressively after a tough second day to finish in a tie for third. McIlroy was playing a full bag of Titleist clubs including a 909D2 driver, 909F3 and 906F2 fairway metals, MB irons, Vokey Design wedges and Scotty Cameron Newport Fastback putter. The winner of the Amateur Silver medal was also using a full bag of Titleist equipment including Pro V1x, 909D3 driver, 909F3 fairway metal, AP2 irons, Vokey Design wedges, Scotty Cameron Coronado putter, to record an impressive top 15 finish. Across the entire field Titleist was the top choice in the iron (37) and wedge (110) categories.


Elsewhere Titleist Brand Ambassador Aaron Goldberg (Pro V1x,) captured his first Canadian Tour title at the Players Cup by one stroke. Oosthuizen and Goldberg’s victories boosted Titleist worldwide win count to 71, more than four times that of the nearest competitor with 16.


Another Major victory for the legendary Pro V1x and yet another Open ball count majority for Titleist provides further proof, that at the highest level, the game’s elite choose Titleist above all others.
