Titleist Tour Report: 10.22.23

DP World Tour | Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters 

Adrian Meronk (Pro V1) followed a pair of front-nine eagles with a 4-under closing 9, including a birdie on the par-3 17th, to clinch the one-shot victory at Real Club de Golf Sotogrande. The 30-year-old Meronk posted a pair of 6-under 66’s over the weekend in Spain to earn his third DP World Tour title of the season, while leading a 1-through-8 finish for Titleist golf ball players: Matti Schmid (Pro V1), Richard Mansell (Pro V1), Louis De Jager (Pro V1)Chase Hanna (Pro V1), Jeff Winther (Pro V1x), Jeong weon Ko (Pro V1x), Marcel Siem (Pro V1).  



Adrian Meronk has now won four times on the DP World Tour since making the move to Pro V1 at the start of 2022. Previously a Pro V1x player, Meronk found during testing that the flatter trajectory of Pro V1 gave him more control on approach shots, while delivering the optimal amount of spin into and around the green. 

“I feel like I can control my irons and the shots into the wind much better and it doesn’t spin as much. So I think that was the main key for me,” Meronk said. “And also with the wedges, I can play low trajectory shots that just skip on the green and one hop and stop.” 

“Just consistent feel off the face and how it reacts on the green. Just a consistent spin as well,” Meronk said about Pro V1 in the short game. “I like to see the shots going quite low, a lot of spin. So with the Pro V1, it was quite consistent for me.” 



The winner of the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters trusted three Vokey Design SM9 wedges (50.12F, 54.10S, 58.10S or WW 58T) on his way to winning his fourth career DP World Tour title.  

Every player in the final Top 8 played at least three Vokey Design wedges. 

AMATEUR | World Amateur Team Championship 

The United States captured the World Amateur Team Championship for the first time since 2014, outpacing second place by 11 shots. Each of the three U.S. team members – Gordon Sargent, the 2023 U.S. Amateur Champion (Pro V1) and the 2023 Jones Cup Champion (Pro V1x Left Dash) – finished in the top 5 individually, with the U.S. Am champ taking home solo 2nd place at 15 under. The all-Titleist golf ball trio are the first Americans to win a Walker Cup and a World Amateur Team Championship in the same year since Justin Thomas

Both Sargent and the 2023 Jones Cup winner gamed an all-Titleist setup, including TSR2 drivers, NEW T-Series utilities, Vokey Design SM9 wedges and Scotty Cameron putters. 

In addition, the individual champion – also the winner of this summer's Western Amateur – played a Pro V1x golf ball, TSR3 driver and full bag of Titleist equipment

Titleist was the overwhelming #1 ball and most played driver, fairway, hybrid, utility iron, iron, wedge and putter this week at the World Amateur Team Championship, topping the counts in every major equipment category: 

  • Ninety-one players in a field of 108 teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball (84%), 13 times the nearest competitor (7). 
  • Titleist accounted for more than half of the drivers (55, 51%), utilities (40, 63%), irons (55, 51%) and wedges (200, 63%) in play this week.  
  • Titleist was also the most played fairway (57, 48%), hybrid (11, 37%) and putter (46, 43%). 

Titleist also swept the counts at this year’s U.S. Amateur, U.S. Women’s Amateur, NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s National Championships, U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, U.S. Four-Ball Championship and all seven Elite Amateur Golf Series events (Sunnehanna Amateur, Northeast Amateur, North and South Amateur, Trans-Mississippi Amateur, Southern Amateur, Pacific Coast Amateur, Western Amateur).  



Titleist Brand Ambassador Gordon Sargent made history this week, becoming the first player to secure a PGA TOUR card through PGA TOUR University Accelerated. The program offers collegiate players the opportunity to earn a TOUR card by earning 20 points by the end of their third year of NCAA eligibility, and points are distributed based on accomplishments in collegiate, amateur or professional tournament play. Sargent’s start this week at the World Amateur Team Championship officially earned him his 20th point.  

Sargent, 20, had a summer to remember in 2023, beginning with Low Amateur honors at the U.S. Open at the Los Angeles Country Club and ending with a come-from-behind U.S. Walker Cup victory at St. Andrews. The Vanderbilt standout led the U.S. team in points, going 4-0 in his matches and becoming just the 19th player in history to do so at the Walker Cup.  

While Sargent is the first player to secure TOUR membership through the recently developed program, only three players since 2010 would have secured their card by reaching the 20-point threshold: Patrick Cantlay, Justin Thomas and Patrick Rodgers


A full breakdown of Sargent’s point total: 

5 pts: No. 1 World Amateur Golf Ranking 

1 pt: 2023 World Amateur Team Championship 

2 pts: 2023 Walker Cup 

1 pt: PGA TOUR made cut at the 2023 John Deere Classic
