Titleist Tops the Field at the World Golf Championships – Mexico Championship
Playing host this week is the Club de Golf Chapultepec. Located less than 10 miles from the heart of Mexico City, the course also scrapes the sky with an elevation of 7,835 feet above sea level at its highest point - the highest elevation ever for a PGA Tour venue.
And sitting high atop the equipment counts in this limited field event, Titleist is once again the overwhelming golf ball choice with 50 players (65% of the total field) trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That’s more than five times the nearest competitor with 9 and more than all competitors combined.
Titleist is also the top choice of players in the irons (18) category and Vokey Design Wedges topped the approach, sand and lob wedge (75) category.
Featuring a 7,330-yard, par-71 course, Club de Golf Chapultepec has also played host to the Mexican Open. The list of past winners of the Mexican Open includes many stars of the game including Titleist Brand Ambassador Jay Haas who hoisted the trophy in 1991.
According to Shotlink mapping data, the lowest part of the course is 7,603 feet above sea level and the highest part of the course is 7,835 feet above sea level. As comparison, Montreux G&CC, venue for the PGA TOUR’s Barracuda Championship in Reno-Tahoe, Nevada, is in the range of 5,476 – 5,952 above sea level.
