Matteo Manasserro wins with Titleist
Fairhaven, MA (May 27, 2013) - Just a month removed from his 20th birthday, Titleist Brand Ambassador Matteo
Manassero became the youngest player ever to win the prestigious BMW PGA Championship, doing it in dramatic
fashion with a birdie on the fourth hole of a three-man playoff.
Trusting the Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist equipment from tee-through-green, Manassero closed with
a pair of 3-under par 69's on the weekend to join the playoff at 10-under par 278. It marked Manassero's fourth
career European Tour title, one each year since 2010 when he first won at age 17.
Manassero topped a world-class field of 150 players at the BMW PGA Championship, 86 (57%) of whom relied
upon a Titleist golf ball at one of the European Tour's most coveted events. Year-to-date, over 66% (1,653) of
all players on the 2013 European Tour have relied upon Titleist golf balls, more than five times the nearest
competitor with 313. Those Titleist golf ball loyalists have accounted for 12 wins through the first 19 events this
year, four times the nearest competitor with 3.
What's in Matteo Manassero's Bag?: Pro V1x, 913D2 (8.5) driver, 913F (13.5) fairway metal, 913H (17,21)
hybrids, AP2 (4-6) and MB (7-P) irons, Vokey Design SM4 gap (52) and lob (58) wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo 5
Titleist golf ball loyalists also won in China and Korea, bringing the year-to-date victory total to 61.
