Titleist balls tops at 135th Open

Titleist topped The 135 Open Championship golf ball count for the 27th consecutive year – or for as long as records have been kept.

With 106 players at Hoylake using them, Titleist balls outnumbered the other brands (17) by more than six times.
Of these, 10 of the top 15 finishers played Titleist golf balls including runner-up Chris DiMarco (Pro V1) and third-place finisher Ernie Els (Pro V1x), who was among the four full-line Titleist ambassadors in the top 15.
Along with DiMarco and Els, other Titleist ball users on the leaderboard were 7th placed Angel Cabrera (Pro V1x), Adam Scott (Pro V1) and Andres Romero (Pro V1x), who tied for eighth, as well as Ben Crane (Pro V1x), SK Ho (Pro V1x), Retief Goosen (Pro V1x), Sean O’Hair (Pro V1x) and Anthony Wall (Pro V1x), who tied for the 11th spot.
Titleist was also the overwhelming favorite in the wedge category with 109 in play at Hoylake as compared to 44 for the nearest competitor. Titleist was second in the driver (32), iron (29) and putter (38) categories.
Just as he did at last year’s Open Championship and for each of each of his 11 major titles won so far, Tiger Woods, the winner of the Open again this year, relied once more on a Scotty Cameron putter by Titleist.
And his latest Open Championship win advances Titleist’s total victory count in the putter category on the 2006 PGA Tour to 15 – more than three times the nearest competitor with 4.
It was also the second consecutive major victory this year for a player trusting a Scotty Cameron following Geoff Ogilvy’s winning performance at the US Open where he played with a Cameron prototype.
