PGA TOUR | PGA Championship 


The winner of the PGA Championship gamed a Scotty Cameron putter in capturing the season’s second major for his fifth major title – all five of them with a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 model.

Sunday’s victory was his first major playing his current gamer, a Scotty Cameron T22 Newport 2 tour prototype, a modern Newport 2 head with a Teryllium alloy inlay, which he also used to win the 2021 Waste Management Phoenix Open.

For the week, he averaged 26 putts per round at Oak Hill, the fewest of any player in the field. On Sunday, he was a perfect 3-for-3 from 4 to 8 feet (and 12 for 15 from that distance for the week). He did not register a three-putt over the 72 holes.

He won his previous four majors playing a Scotty Cameron T10 Newport 2 tour prototype, which also featured a Teryllium insert.


The Low Club Professional at the 2023 PGA Championship gamed a NEW Titleist Pro V1 golf ball in shooting rounds of 70-70-70-71 to finish tied for 15th (+1), automatically qualifying for next year’s PGA Championship at Vahalla.

It marked the best finish for a PGA Professional at the event since 1986 (T11).

The Low Club Pro closed out the week with perhaps the shot of tournament, sending his Pro V1 straight into the cup on the 151-yard par-3 15th hole for a slam-dunk ace.

It was the first and only hole-in-one of the week, and the first at a PGA Championship since Byeong Hun-An's ace during the final round of 2020 (par-3 11th at TPC Harding Park).

To close out the week, he got up-and-down for par from a difficult position in the rough about 30 yards left of the 18th green, hitting his Pro V1 to 7 feet, 6 inches and draining the par putt. For the week, he finished 13th in Scrambling (18/29).


With his runner-up finish (T2), Scottie Scheffler returned to the No. 1 spot in the Official World Ranking after four days of immense ballstriking at Oak Hill.

Scheffler was in total control of his Pro V1 golf ball, leading the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+15.3) with more than nine of those strokes coming on Approach (+5.749/5th) and Around the Green (+3.647/8th). He also finished T1 in Scrambling, getting his Pro V1 up and down 71% (15/21) of the time.

This week marked Scheffler’s eighth top 10 in his last 11 major starts as well as his 14th consecutive finish of 12th or better on the PGA TOUR.

Joining Scheffler in second was Viktor Hovland, who also excelled tee to green, gaining more than 14 shots (+14.153/3rd) on the field. Hovland, who plays a Pro V1 golf ball, led the field in Strokes Gained Approach (+10.661). 

KORN FERRY TOUR | AdventHealth Championship

The winner of the AdventHealth Championship, in his first week playing a NEW Pro V1 golf ball after using a competitive brand, earned his first professional win since 2017, closing in 4-under 68 for the one-shot victory. The champion posted four rounds of 68 or better, including a bogey-free 64 in his third round that ended with four consecutive birdies from 15-18.

For the week, he hit 78% of his greens in regulation and finished 5th in Scrambling, getting his Pro V1 up-and-down 88% of the time.


Carlota Ciganda, playing a Pro V1x golf ball, claimed her ninth professional title with a one-victory at the Ladies European Tour’s Aramco Team Series event in Florida. Ciganda posted rounds of 72-69-73, closing with a pair of pars in difficult, windy conditions to secure the one-shot victory in the individual race. Ciganda now has seven career LET wins to go with two LPGA victories.

JAPAN TOUR | Golf Partner Pro-Am

Juvic Pagunsan (NEW Pro V1) earned his second career JGTO victory after turning in four rounds of 66 or better (64-63-64-66) to win by two shots. In control of his golf ball all week, Pagunsan made 29 birdies on his way to his 23-under 257 total at Toride Kokusai Golf Club.


This winner of the Golf Partner Pro-Am trusted 14 Titleist clubs en route to shooting 23 under and earning a two-shot win. The champion, who started the 2023 season with a TSR driver in his bag, this week added two TSR fairways and a mixed set of Titleist irons – T200 4-5 irons and 620 CB 6-P irons.

"I would also like to give credit to my new set of clubs,” he said after the round. “They performed flawlessly throughout the entire week, enabling me to hit the ball and putt solidly."

SUNSHINE TOUR | Zanaco Masters

The Zanaco Masters champion rolled in his NEW Pro V1x golf ball for birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to earn his first career Sunshine Tour victory in just his 11th start. The Zimbabwe-native shot a final round 68 and posted 17 under to force extra holes with Neil Schietekat (Pro V1x), the winner two weeks ago. After Schietekat made par on the par-5 18th in the playoff, an up-and-down for birdie sealed the win for this week’s champion.
