Titleist is No. 1 Ball at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans
“Yeah, it got a little tricky after the rain,” De Jonge explained, “and it got muddy out there. But still the course was there for the taking.”
Pro V1x loyalist David Hearn also took advantage of the conditions, shooting a 7-under 65.
“I hit it on a lot of fairways and gave myself a lot of chances from there. Even though it's generous off the tee, you have to put yourself in good spots. You can't be in the rough out there.”
Considering the opening-round scores and the prospect of continued soft conditions, fans could be treated to a shootout this weekend in the Big Easy. And to go low, the vast majority of players will be teeing up a Titleist golf ball.
A total of 103 players in this week's field are playing a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, more than five times the nearest competitor with 20 and more than all competitors combined.
Titleist is also No. 1 in the sand, lob and approach wedges category (164) as well as putters (55).
