Press Release from Titleist TITLEIST EQUIPMENT UPDATE: The Honda Classic According to Darrell Survey, for the third time this season, Titleist achieved the feat of sweeping every major equipment category at a PGA TOUR event - this time it is The Honda Classic - and by looking at the counts, the choice is overwhelmingly clear. From golf balls, to drivers, fairway and hybrids, and irons to wedges and putters, the Titleist brand is the overwhelming field favorite as the Tour moves from the west coast to the Florida swing. > Titleist is the top choice in golf balls with 112 players in the field of 144 - that's 78 percent of the field and seven times the nearest competitor with 16. > One out of every three drivers in the field is a Titleist with 48 (33%) in play this week - that's 16 more than the nearest competitor with 32. > The Titleist TS3 continues to be the most played single driver model on the PGA TOUR with 29, nearly double the next closest driver model with 15. > The Titleist TS3 is also the most played driver on the European Tour again this week with 29. That's 20 percent of the field playing that single model. > Titleist irons also accounted for nearly one-third of the field with 46 (32%) sets in play - 21 more sets than the nearest competitor. > The Titleist 718 MB (20) and the 718 AP2 (14) are the top two most played iron models this week. > Titleist Brand Ambassador Peter Malnati is playing the 718 AP2 Black irons (5-9) that were recently released. Malnati was shipped the irons to his home in Tennessee during his off week but never got a chance to practice with them because of inclement weather. It was the only set he brought with him to the Honda Classic and worked them into his bag this bag this week. He joins Cam Smith as the two Titleist players putting the new AP2 Black models in play. > More than half of all wedges in the field this week (220/55%) are of the Vokey Design variety. The nearest competitor has 60 wedges in play. > Scotty Cameron putters are the overwhelming field favorite this week with 54 (38%) in play, 14 more than the nearest competitor. > More players on the PGA TOUR rely upon Scotty Cameron putters than any other brand and tops the Tour in wins with 4 this season. > Titleist equipment counts at The Honda Classic vs. the Nearest Competitor (NC): GOLF BALLS: TITLEIST - 112 (78%) NC - 16 (11%) DRIVERS: TITLEIST - 48 (33%) NC - 32 (22%) FAIRWAYS: TITLEIST - 56 (31%) NC - 37 (20%) HYBRIDS: TITLEIST - 25 (39%) NC - 17 (27%) IRONS: TITLEIST - 46 (32%) NC - 25 (17%) WEDGES: TITLEIST - 220 (55%) NC - 60 (15%) PUTTERS: TITLEIST - 54 (38%) NC - 40 (28%)
