Five consecutive wins for Titleist balls


With Tiger Woods sidelined by the most famous surgically-repaired left knee in recent sports history, there have been few streaks to talk about on the PGA Tour early this season. (Remember: Tiger won his first five PGA Tour starts in 2008.) But there is one impressive streak going, thanks to the late heroics of Nick Watney at last week’s Buick Invitational. Watney’s victory made it five consecutive wins for Titleist dimple users, running their record in 2009 to a perfect 5-0 on Tour. Eight of the top 10 finishers at Torrey Pines played Titleist golf balls, including third-place finisher Camilo Villegas, who used the New 2009 Pro V1x. In all, 32 players in the field teed it up with the New Pro V1x, and 22 with the New 2009 Pro V1. Watney, however, wasn’t one of them. He played the 2007 version of the Pro V1x.
