Bridgestone captured the top spot at The Players Championship with Matt Kuchar’s victory playing a Tour B330-S golf ball, but Titleist once again was the dominant ball (and club) name in the field.
Eight of the 11 players who finished among the top 10 and tied, including Zach Johnson (Pro V1x), Ben Curtis (Pro V1x), Rickie Fowler (Pro V1x), Martin Laird (Pro V1x), Kevin Na (Pro V1x) and Luke Donald (Pro V1x) played Titleist golf balls. In total, 93 players used Titleist balls at the Players – more than five times the nearest competitor with 17.
Johnson, Laird, Fowler and Curtis each finished tied for second at The Players. Donald placed sixth and Na tied for seventh.
Titleist was also first in iron sets (38); sand, lob and approach wedges (140); and putters (56).
Johnson played a Titleist 910D2 driver, 910F fairway metal, 909F2 fairway metal, 909H hybrid, AP1/AP2 irons and Vokey Design Spin Milled pitching, sand and lob wedges. Johnson also used a See Moe FGB putter. He’s used various See More putters for the past several years.
Curtis played a 910D3 driver, 910Fd fairway metal, 910H hybrids, AP1 irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled gap and lob wedges and Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2 putter.
Na, the third round leader, played a Titleist 910D3 driver, 910H hybrid, AP2 irons, Vokey Design Spin Milled sand and lob wedges and Scotty Cameron Tour Rat putter.
