Another Super Sunday for Stricker, Titleist
Fairhaven, MA (February 8, 2010) - It was another super Sunday for Titleist, as Steve Stricker posted a two-shot victory at the Northern Trust Open. It marked the eighth career PGA TOUR title for Stricker, including the fourth in his last 15 starts, and vaulted him to No. 2 in the Official World Golf Rankings. The Titleist Brand Ambassador places his trust in the Pro V1 and a bag full of Titleist equipment for his success.
WHAT’S IN STEVE STRICKER’S BAG?: Pro V1 golf ball, 909D3 driver (8.5), 906F2 fairway metal (13.0), 909H hybrids (19.0, 21.0), 755 irons (4-P), Vokey Design Spin Milled sand (54) and lob (60) wedges.
PERFECT FIVE: It is shaping up to be a stellar year on the 2010 PGA TOUR for Titleist, as Stricker’s victory makes it five consecutive wins by Titleist golf ball loyalists. Stricker joins full-line Titleist Brand Ambassadors Geoff Ogilvy (SBS) and Bill Haas (Bob Hope) in the Winner’s Circle, as well as Ryan Palmer (Sony) and Ben Crane (Farmers Insurance).
IRONS IN THE FIRE: In addition to the five golf ball wins this year, all five PGA TOUR winners have also relied upon Titleist irons for their success. Geoff Ogilvy won with the New MB irons the first time he put them into play at the SBS Championship, while Bill Haas earned his first career victory playing the New CB’s. Stricker uses the 755’s. The Sony Open and Farmers Insurance Open winners both played the AP2.
RIVIERA ROUNDUP: While Stricker closed with a one-under par 70 for the emotional victory, playing partner and Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald kept the pressure on all day. Donald fired a final round 6-under 66, finishing two shots behind Stricker’s 16-under 268 total. Pro V1x loyalist J.B. Holmes, who was among the final threesome, shot a final round 5-under 67 to earn a share of third place at 13-under 271. Paul Goydos (Pro V1) matched the low score of the final round with a 6-under 65 and a four-way tie for fifth, that included Steve Marino (Pro V1x).

Titleist was also first in IRON SETS with 35; HYBRIDS (27); SAND, LOB and APPROACH WEDGES with 100, nearly double the nearest competitor with 51; and PUTTERS with 46 (35%).
