PGA TOUR (March 12, 2023)
THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP
The PLAYERS Champion gamed a Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype, which he used to roll in a 20-foot, 10-inch par putt on the 72nd hole to seal his five-shot victory. The putter is the same flatstick he trusted to victory last month at the WM Phoenix Open and the same model that saw him win four times in 2022 but with a flatter lie angle.
The winner began his final nine holes by rolling in an 18-foot birdie putt on No. 10 to extend his advantage, which he built on with two more birdies on Nos. 11 and 12. For the week, the winner recorded zero 3-putts, and he ranks 4th in 3-putt avoidance for the 2022-23 season (1.04%).
ASIAN TOUR (March 12, 2023)
INTERNATIONAL SERIES THAILAND
Trusting his Scotty Cameron Timeless Prototype, Titleist Brand Ambassador Wade Ormsby made birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to claim his fourth-career Asian Tour title. The Australian shot a final round 7-under 65 to reach 20 under and force extra holes, closing out the tournament by holing a 12-foot birdie putt on his second go-around on the par-5 18th.

NZ PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
Titleist Brand Ambassador Louis Dobbelaar, playing a Newport 2 Tour Prototype, claimed his first professional victory, winning by three shots after posting 20 under for the week. Dobbelaar was the only player to shoot all four rounds in the 60’s for the week at Gulf Harbour Country Club (66-67-66-69). Eight of the top nine finishers on the final leader board had a Titleist golf ball in play for the week.
LPGA TOUR (March 5, 2023)
HSBC WOMEN'S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
The winner claimed her 14th career LPGA Tour title, closing in 3-under 69 to reach 17 under and win by two shots trusting a Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 Tour Prototype. In control of her golf ball all week long, the World No. 5 hit 17 of 18 greens in regulation on Sunday – and 89% GIR for the week – in successfully defending her title in Singapore.
LPGA TOUR (February 26, 2023)
HONDA LPGA THAILAND
The winner closed in 8-under 64 to rally from six shots back to win her first LPGA title trusting her Scotty Cameron GOLO 5 Tour putter. The 25-year-old made eight birdies Sunday on Siam Country Club’s Pattaya Old Course – including five straight from Nos. 8-12 – to post 22 under and win by one shot.
Last week, she finished T3 on the Ladies European Tour in her first event playing the NEW Pro V1x. She is now a combined 41 under par in her first eight rounds playing the 2023 model with six rounds of 67 or better.

WM PHOENIX OPEN
Holding on to a one-shot lead on the 16th hole on Sunday, the winner of the WM Phoenix Open faced a difficult, short-sided pitch from left of the green. Using a Vokey Design wedge, the champion safely pitched his Pro V1 golf ball to 15 feet, 4 inches from the hole. He then rolled in the par save with his Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype to carry a two-shot lead into the final two holes, reclaiming the World No. 1 title with the win.
CHAMPION HOLES KEY PUTTS DOWN THE STRETCH WITH SCOTTY CAMERON PUTTER: The winner of the WM Phoenix Open relied on his Pro V1 golf ball and his scoring clubs down the stretch to pull away from the field and finish off his two-shot victory. The champion rolled in an eagle putt on No. 13 from 21 feet, 11 inches with his Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype putter to regain his lead on the back nine. A clutch 15-foot par save on No. 16 extended his advantage with two holes to play.
The now two-time WM Phoenix Open champion first put a Newport 2-style putter in play exactly a year ago at TPC Scottsdale, and he went on to win four times in six starts with the new flatstick. The reigning Masters Champion’s current putter is the exact same model as his putter from last season but with a flatter lie angle. Prior to his switch at last year’s WM Phoenix Open, he had previously been using a Newport-style Super Rat 1 tour prototype and worked with Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Brad Cloke to dial in his setup.
"He just wanted to switch things up a little bit and give himself a slightly different look heading into 2022," said Cloke on the winner’s move to his current model. "Prior to visiting us in the Studio, he’d been messing around with an older Newport 2 Timeless he had at home. He’d added bunch of lead tape to the sole to try and get it to a similar swingweight as his Super Rat. He really liked the profile, but the feel wasn’t exactly where he wanted it, so we went to work on building him a new setup with adjustable weighting."

TROPHY HASSAN II
The winner of the Trophy Hassan II collected his third career win on the PGA TOUR Champions in just his second start playing the NEW Titleist Pro V1 golf ball and a Scotty Cameron Timeless Tour Prototype. He finished off his third win emphatically, winning by five shots and in wire-to-wire fashion. The Canadian opened with a 5-under 67 – which tied for the lowest round of the week – and closed with a steady round of even par at the difficult Royal Golf Dar Es Salam venue.
SUNSHINE TOUR (February 12, 2023)
DIMENSION DATA PRO-AM
Trusting his Scotty Cameron Phantom X T-6 Tour putter, Titleist Brand Ambassador Oliver Bekker, teeing up the NEW Pro V1x golf ball, won his eighth Sunshine Tour event, posting 22 under for a four-shot win in front of a home crowd. Bekker was the only player to shoot all four rounds in the 60’s (67-68-64-68), and his victory marked his second win at the Dimension Data Pro-Am, having first won the tournament in 2012. Five final round birdies – four of which came in his final nine holes – saw Bekker maintain his lead over the competition, capping off a stellar performance at Fancourt Golf Resort.
PGA TOUR AUSTRALASIA (February 12, 2023)

JOHN HAYT INVITATIONAL
In his first collegiate start with NEW Pro V1, Gordon Sargent cruised to a seven-shot victory at the John Hayt Invitational playing a Scotty Cameron 009M (Masterful) SSS Tour putter. The reigning NCAA Individual Champion posted a record-breaking 54 holes highlighted by a second round 64, matching the tournament low round and smashing the 54-hole scoring mark (-15), score in relation to par, and victory margin. He also led his team to a 16-shot team victory in the event.
PGA TOUR (January 28, 2023)
FARMERS INSURANCE OPEN
It’s now five wins and counting for Max Homa with a Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter model in the bag. The run began at the 2021 Genesis Invitational, where Homa, gaming a Phantom X 11.5, became the first player to win with a Phantom X model putter on the PGA TOUR. Four months later, he switched to the Phantom X 5.5 Tour Prototype, which he used to win the last two Fortinet Championships, as well as the Wells Fargo Championship last May.
This week, Homa gained more than 4 ½ strokes on the field putting (+4.595), ranking ninth for the week. He gained 3.46 strokes during the final round alone. Said Homa, on his switch to Phantom X: “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."
PGA TOUR LATINOAMÉRICA (December 18, 2022)
SCOTIA WEALTH MANAGEMENT CHILE OPEN
Titleist Brand Ambassador Matt Ryan made eagle on the 72nd hole to win by one shot for his second career title on PGA Tour Latinoamérica. Ryan, playing a Pro V1 golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment including a Scotty Cameron Timeless Tour Prototype, closed in 2-under 70 on Sunday to finish the week in Chile at 10 under, one clear of fellow Brand Ambassador Conner Godsey. Ryan played the par 5’s in 5 under during the final round, including two eagles.
DP WORLD TOUR/PGA TOUR OF AUSTRALASIA 2022-23 (November 27, 2022)
FORTINET AUSTRALIAN PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
Cameron Smith, playing a Pro V1x golf ball, NEW TSR metalwoods and his trusty Scotty Cameron 009M (Masterful) Prototype putter, won his third career Australian PGA Championship in the DP World Tour’s season-opening week. Playing in his birthplace of Brisbane, Smith shot all four rounds in the 60’s (68-65-69-68) on his way to a three-shot win.
The reigning Champion Golfer of the Year closed in 3-under 68 to finish at 14 under. Smith made three back nine birdies to pull away from the field and add another victory to his stellar 2022. Thirteen of the top 17 finishers at Royal Queensland Golf Club gamed a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball model.
PGA TOUR 2022-23 (November 6, 2022)
WORLD WIDE TECHNOLOGY CHAMPIONSHIP AT MAYAKOBA
Titleist FPL player Russell Henley cruised to his fourth PGA TOUR title Sunday at Mayakoba, closing in 1-under 70 for a four-shot victory. Henley, gaming a Pro V1x golf ball with a full bag of Titleist equipment that included a Special Select Timeless Tourtype GSS Long Neck Prototype, opened the week with consecutive 63’s on his way to setting the tournament scoring record at 23 under par. He made 25 birdies (T1) over the four days in Mexico while playing his first 58 holes bogey-free, getting up and down 15 consecutive times during that stretch.
Henley, 33, led the field in driving accuracy (78.6%) while finishing second in both Scrambling (90.5%) and One Putts (42). Said Henley: “I just feel the consistency throughout my bag is just unbelievable. Every club that I’ve hit, I don’t feel like I’ve ever hit a ball that’s gone way farther than I thought or way shorter. The distance control (with my Pro V1x) is outstanding. The spin around the greens is outstanding.”
PGA TOUR 2022-23 (October 10, 2022)
SHRINERS CHILDREN'S OPEN
Titleist staff player Joohyung “Tom” Kim earned his second career victory on the PGA TOUR – trusting his Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype putter – becoming the youngest two-time TOUR winner in 90 years. The 20-year-old made 24 birdies and zero bogeys over the 72 holes at TPC Summerlin, with his 24-under total earning him a three-shot victory.
Kim, who moves to No. 15 in the Official World Golf Ranking, shot a final round 5-under 66, his fourth-consecutive round of 67 or better (65-67-62-66). For the week, Kim led the field Scrambling, getting his Pro V1x up-and-down 100% of the time (9 attempts). He also ranked 3rd in Greens in Regulation (87.5%), 3rd in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green (+8.933), 5th in SG: Approach (+5.83) and 3rd in SG: Putting (+6.052). Kim’s victory marks his second win in four starts, a meteoric rise since his breakout 3rd-place finish at the Genesis Scottish Open and his PGA TOUR card-clinching Sunday 63 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July.
KIM ROLLING WITH SCOTTY CAMERON PUTTER: Playing a Scotty Cameron Timeless TT (Tour Type) GSS Tour Prototype putter, Kim gained more than six (+6.052) strokes on the greens, averaging 1.651 putts per green in regulation.
“I’ve always putted my best with a blade,” Kim said. “I was using a mallet for a couple of years, but I’ve won a lot of my tournaments with a blade, and I wanted to come back, kind of use something natural. Scotty and Paul (Vizanko) really helped me with this piece and it looks great with the mint blue (paintfill). It’s been in the bag for a really long time now.”
PGA TOUR 2022-23 (September 19, 2022)
Seemingly as fast as one season ends another begins. And, with the Fortinet Championship kicking off the 2022-23 PGA TOUR season, Max Homa secured another victory on Sunday, September 18, 2022, with his trusty Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 Tour Prototype. It was Homa’s fourth PGA TOUR title taken with a Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter model in the bag.
The run began at the 2021 Genesis Invitational, where Homa, gaming a Phantom X 11.5, became the first player to win with a Phantom X model putter on the PGA TOUR. Four months later, he switched to the Phantom X 5.5, which he used to win his first Fortinet Championship last September and then the Wells Fargo Championship in May. The same putter was in his hands this week in Napa, where he gained more than four strokes on the field (+4.003/9th).
Said Homa, on his switch to Phantom X: “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.
