'Dam good: Masters champ Adam Scott helps Titleist celebrate 65 years as the most used ball at the US Open


Titleist, manufacturer of the No.1 ball in golf, has continued the longest running success story in golf this week at the US Open. That's because the 2013 staging of the event, at Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania, marks the 65th consecutive year that Titleist golf balls have been the choice of the majority of the field.

The performance excellence of Titleist golf balls have been trusted by the majority of the world's best golfers at Major championships for many years, and this year's US Open has been no different, with 97 players of the 156 who started the event choosing to tee up a Titleist, compared to 23 for the nearest competitor.

The legendary Pro V1 franchise has led the way for Titleist golf balls since its introduction in 2000, and with 67 wins across worldwide professional tours in 2013, compared to 20 for the nearest competitor, they continue to set the standard at the highest level of the game.

Last year's US Open, of course, saw Titleist brand ambassador Webb Simpson crowned as champion at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. Simpson trusted a Pro V1x golf ball for his success, as well as a full bag of Titleist equipment, to storm through the field from six shots behind entering the final round and claim his maiden major title.

Simpson's victory 12 months ago was part of a 'Titleist Treble' in the men's majors last year, following wins at the Masters for Bubba Watson (Pro V1x), and victory for Titleist brand ambassadors at the US Open and USPGA Championship respectively. This year's first major championship marked another victory for a Titleist player, with Adam Scott emerging victorious at the Masters on the second hole of a sudden-death play-off against Pro V1x loyalist Angel Cabrera.
