Why are the folks at Titleist celebrating this week?

Titleist has extended its streak as the No.1 ball at The Open in emphatic fashion.

The leader in this category since records began, Titleist was the ball of choice for two-thirds of the 156-strong field that teed it up at Royal Portrush this week.

Remarkably, that’s more than five times that of the nearest competitor.

A win on Sunday would make it ten wins from the last eleven majors for a Titleist golf ball – a run stretching back to the 2017 US Open. Not only that, it would also mark the fifth Claret Jug in a row.

Titleist Golf Ball manager, Jan Diprose, said: “After a clean sweep of both men’s and ladies’ majors in 2018, it has been great to see the momentum continue this season, with more tour professionals using the Pro V1 and Pro V1x than ever before.

“We’ve also seen a significant number of players transition into the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls following their launch at the start of the year. By winning this week’s golf ball count again at the final major of the year, Titleist has once again cemented its status as the most trusted ball in golf.”
