DP WORLD TOUR | Horizon Irish Open 

Titleist Brand Ambassador  Vincent Norrman  played his final 12 holes on Sunday in 7 under, storming up the leader board to win by one at the K Club. The 25-year-old, gaming a  Pro V1x golf ball  and  TSR3 driver among his Titleist setup, began the day six shots off the pace before turning in a bogey-free 65 to reach 14 under. From Nos. 7 through 14, he birdied six of the eight holes. “The course got a lot of rain and it was a little soft on the greens. I just tried to go out and be aggressive,” he said.  

It’s Norrman’s second victory in two months, having earned his first professional victory in July at the Barbasol Championship, co-sanctioned by the PGA TOUR and DP World Tour. 

For the week in Ireland, Norrman ranked 4th in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (+1.08 per round) and 5th in SG: Tee to Green (+2.22 per round). He hit 75% of his greens in regulation and ranked 9th in Scrambling, getting his Pro V1x up-and-down 72% of the time.

A longtime Pro V1x player, Vincent Norrman prefers the higher flight he gets from X, needing the added height and spin to attack the firm, fast greens on the PGA TOUR.

“I prefer the Pro V1x because with my spin I can launch it a little higher and hold the greens a little bit better,” Norrman said earlier this year at The American Express, just one week after making the move to the 2023 model.

Norrman finished ninth in greens in regulation (69.76%) this season on the PGA TOUR (2022-23 FedExCup events). He hit over 75% of greens last season on the Korn Ferry Tour while earning his TOUR card.

“I’ve played the Pro V1x for as long as I can remember, actually before college, all the way through college and professional,” Norrman said this week at the Irish Open.

“It’s something I’m very comfortable with, familiar with, and I actually switched to the new ball (2023 Pro V1x) as well this year. When it came out I saw a little better trajectory with irons, which I really, really, really like. So that was a very easy transition.”

Titleist was the most played golf ball at The K Club with 108 players, more than five times the nearest competitor (21), including Norrman and runner-up  Hurly Long (Pro V1)


Vincent Norrman: Inside the Ropes at the Horizon Irish Open

Vincent Norrman was the among the group of 51 players at The K Club who gamed a Titleist driver, the most played driver at the Horizon Irish Open and all season on the DP World Tour. The field’s most popular model, TSR3, was also the choice of the champ: TSR3 10.0 (Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro White 60 TX), D•1 SureFit hosel setting).

Norrman, who was 29th this season on TOUR in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (+0.373) and 14th in Total Driving, put TSR in play the first week it was available last season on the Korn Ferry Tour (Memorial Health Championship).

“I play kind of a lighter shaft, 60-something grams, 9.25 loft, so I can kind of generate a lot of speed in there,” Norrman said this week during his Tuesday practice round. “I switched to the TSR as soon as it came out.  It felt a little hotter off the face for me. Very similar (look), but it’s like the small things that kind of fit my eye. And it’s helped me a lot to improve my ball-striking off the tee.”

Following the breakthrough performance gains of the Titleist Speed Project and the introduction of the TS, TSi and now TSR driver models, Titleist has been the most played driver on the PGA TOUR for five straight seasons.

Thirty-two percent of all drivers in play during the 2022-23 FedExCup season were Titleist models, compared to 22% for the nearest competitor. Five of the last seven major championships have been won with a Titleist driver, including the 2023 U.S. Open (Wyndham Clark) and the 2023 Open Championship (Brian Harman). Five of the top 10 players in the OWGR play a Titleist driver, as well as nine of the top 17.

The  winner of the LPGA’s Kroger Queen City Championship  gamed a  Scotty Cameron Super Select Newport 2 Plus Dual Balance tour prototype putter, which she used to tap in her winning birdie on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff.

It was her fourth event playing the new putter after making the change at the Amundi Evian Championship. She won both her major championships (2021 Evian Championship, 2022 U.S. Women’s Open) with a  Scotty Cameron Tourtype Special Select Timeless SSS tour prototype model.
