“Last year I got to World No. 1 ranking after winning a major for the first time and that was really special, and then obviously going through what I’ve been through this year and regaining that World No. 1 ranking is really special as well. I’ve heard somewhere that it’s a really tight race; everyone has had an amazing year. I think for me, I just appreciate it a lot more.”

PGA TOUR (August 21)
Titleist Brand Ambassador Patrick Cantlay won the BMW Championship for the second straight season, making birdie on the 17th hole Sunday at Wilmington Country Club on his way to a one-shot victory. Playing a Pro V1x golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment including his Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 Tour Prototype, Cantlay became the first player to successfully defend a FedEx Cup Playoffs event, following last year’s playoff victory at Caves Valley. It marked the eighth-career PGA TOUR title for Cantlay, who finished the week 14 under after four rounds in the 60’s (68-68-65-69). For the week, he finished second in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+8.821), third in SG: Off the Tee (+4.011), sixth in SG: Approach (+5.173) and T2 in Scrambling (80%). Cantlay, also the defending TOUR Championship and FedEx Cup winner, enters next week’s finale at No. 2 in the FedEx Cup rankings.
CANTLAY’S SUCCESS CONTINUES WITH PHANTOM X 5: A year ago at the BMW Championship, Cantlay – playing his Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 Tour Prototype putter – gained more strokes putting (+14.6) than any player in a single tournament since they began tracking the statistic in 2004.
The success has continued throughout 2022. Heading into next week’s season finale, he ranks third in One-Putt Percentage (43.33%), while leading the TOUR in Approach Putt Performance (lag putting). He’s second in Birdie or Better Conversion Percentage at 37.21%. Cantlay was a perfect 15-for-15 from inside seven feet on Sunday and was T-4 for the week in putting from 10-15 feet (57.1%), as he made it 21 wins for Scotty Cameron players this season on the PGA TOUR, more than any other competitor.
Cantlay first switched to his Phantom X 5 mid-mallet model last April at the Zurich Classic, seeking added stability through the putter’s compact wingback construction. Three starts later, he used it to win The Memorial.
"A little different for me, I switched over into a mallet," said Cantlay, who for years had played a blade-style Newport 2 GSS tour prototype. "It’s more face-balanced, so it felt just a little easier to aim and it felt a little easier to swing just straight back and straight through. Launch conditions have been really good and I’ve been making some putts."
Cantlay’s Memorial-winning Phantom X 5 featured a double bend shaft without alignment features. Following the second round of the 2021 Northern Trust, Cantlay switched into his current Phantom X 5 configuration with a sight line on the topline (like the stock model). Around that time, Cantlay also began marking a line on his Pro V1x golf ball to help with alignment on short putts.
LPGA EUROPEAN TOUR (August 21)
ARAMCO TEAM SERIES SOTOGRANDE
Trusting an all-new Scotty Cameron Newport 2+ Tour Prototype putter, Titleist Brand Ambassador Nelly Korda came from seven shots back to start the final round, closing in 5-under 67 to win by three shots.

PGA TOUR (August 14)
FEDEX ST. JUDE CHAMPIONSHIP
Titleist Brand Ambassador Will Zalatoris vaulted to the top of the FedExCup Playoffs standings and into the Top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking (No. 9), claiming his first PGA TOUR title on the third hole of a playoff Sunday in Memphis.
Zalatoris – gaming a Pro V1 golf ball and all-Titleist setup, including a Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter – played his final 54 holes of the week in 16 under, posting a final-round 4-under 66 Sunday to force the extra session. Over the four days at TPC Southwind, Zalatoris, 25, topped the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+8.37) and SG: Approach (+7.73).
ZALATORIS WINS WITH PHANTOM X; 20 WINS FOR SCOTTY CAMERON PLAYERS THIS SEASON: Zalatoris’ victory Sunday with his Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11 Tour Prototype made it 20 wins for Scotty Cameron players this season on the PGA TOUR, more than any other competitor.
It was just one year earlier at TPC Southwind – at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational – that Zalatoris put a new Phantom X 11 in play for the first time.
On Sunday, Zalatoris rolled in a clutch 10-footer for par on 18 to make the playoff, then dropped another 10-footer for par on the second playoff hole to extend the match. His 7-footer on the third playoff hole sealed the victory. For the week, Zalatoris led the field in approach putt performance (also known as lag putting).
“Immediately when I was hitting putts [with it for the first time], I knew exactly where the putt was going to go. Right off the face, I can feel the putt distance-wise and that’s super important,” Zalatoris said.
“When it comes to testing for me, it’s all feel. It was a putter that the second I put it down, I felt like I could see the line super well. I put a line on my ball and seeing that ball roll end over end, it’s a pretty good feeling when you strike a putt and it goes in dead center.”
“Players just love the way the 11 sits on the ground,” said Scotty Cameron Rep Drew Page. “When you put it down, it doesn’t open, it doesn’t close, it just sets up so easily.”
DP WORLD TOUR (August 14)
ISPS HANDA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

WELLS FARGO CHAMPIONSHIP
Sunday marked the third win for Max Homa in the last 15 months, each of them with a Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter model in the bag. “When you putt it like I did this week, you know, you almost have to mess up to at least not contend, so that was a humongous part of the week, for sure,” he said.
The run began at last year’s Genesis Invitational, where Homa, gaming a Phantom X 11.5 model, became the first player to win with a Phantom X on the PGA TOUR. Four months later, he switched to the Phantom X 5.5, which he used to win the Fortinet Championship in September. That same putter was in his hands this week in Maryland, where he finished fourth in Strokes Gained: Putting (+7.596).
Said Homa, on his switch to Phantom X last season: “I was just struggling with face control with my putter. So I tried a few mallets, ended up going with one of the Phantoms and it just felt like it swung a bit better. It didn’t feel like I needed to work so much with my hands to release the putter. And at that time that’s really what I needed and then I got hooked on them.
“I think you almost don't have to do as much with your hands, so you can just focus on the big muscles. And I feel like, especially with putting, especially when you're nervous, that’s a huge part of being consistent and having a lot of repetition. I felt like that was something that I was missing. And when I switched to that, I felt like it just became a lot more predictable just because I could take out a variable.
“Speed control became much easier with the Phantom style. I felt like because of the weight of the head or just the way it swung, I just felt like it was a lot easier to control my putts from 15 to 25 feet. That’s where I’ve typically struggled. That’s definitely the most obvious impact I saw.
“I think we work a lot on alignment with my putting, with getting the face square to the target line and something about the way they set up, I feel like they’re very square. I feel like that’s helped, but I really do think that the speed control has been the main benefactor (to my wins), holing a couple extra 10 to 20 footers. And that typically is mostly speed based, less start line than the closer putts.”
Max shares some thoughts about his choice in putter in the clip below.

PGA TOUR AUSTRALASIA
Titleist Brand Ambassador Jarryd Felton rolled his Pro V1x golf ball in with his 009M (Masterful) SSS Prototype for birdie on the first hole of a playoff to claim the trophy in Sydney. Felton’s win continues the momentum for Titleist players this season in Australia.
Titleist Brand Ambassador and Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS loyalist Sihwan Kim captured his first Asian Tour title, closing in 9-under 64 for a two-shot victory at the International Series Thailand. Kim, 33, started the final round three shots behind the leader but quickly made up the difference with seven birdies in a row from holes 2 through 8 to make the turn in 29. The 2004 U.S. Junior Am champ opened the event with a course-record 62 at Black Mountain GC in Hua Hin. He has been in the final pairing on Sunday at three of the last six Asian Tour events.
Additionally the World No. 1 LPGA player trusted her Scotty Cameron Phantom X T-5.5 Prototype to victory at the HSBC Women's World Championship.
