“After the eighth hole, it wasn’t looking good,” said Donald. “My caddie and I talked Saturday night that I hadn’t really gotten on a run yet this week. What better time to get on a run than the back nine on Sunday. It’s nice to do it under pressure when I need to.”

{Whats in the Bag} Bill Haas Trusts Pro V1x & A Bag Full of Titleist Equipment

titleist-bill-haas-brag

With one foot in a lake, two hands on his Vokey Design Spin Milled wedge and the game’s richest prize on the line, Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas stood over his Titleist Pro V1x golf ball and hit one of the PGA Tour’s all-time clutch shots Sunday afternoon at East Lake, propelling him to victories in both the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup Playoffs.

On the second hole of an all-Titleist playoff with Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan, Haas’ approach shot hit the left side of the 17th green and dribbled to the edge of the lake, leaving about one-third of his ball sitting below the water line.

Haas never hesitated, trusting his Titleist golf ball and equipment would reward him for a great swing.

“We get up there and that’s when I see the ball, and I say in my head, ‘I have a shot,’ ” said Haas, who immediately pulled his Vokey Design Spin Milled 60•E (bent to 59º) wedge from his bag, hopped down the four-foot embankment, stuck one foot in the water and waggled his wedge over his Pro V1x.

“You play it like a bunker shot, for those of you that want to know, if there’s a little bit of water, if you don’t mind getting your feet dirty, and then blast it out of there,” he said. “It came out perfect.” Read More…

{Whats in the Bag} Justin Rose Wins The BMW Championship & Qualifies For TOUR Championship

justin-rose-adidas-blog

LEMONT, Ill. – The score sheet will say England’s Justin Rose breezed to a wire-to-wire victory in the BMW Championship. Breezed? It was more like weathering Hurricane Irene.

Playing in steady rain, Rose nearly squandered a five-stroke lead after eight holes Sunday but held on with an even-par 71 to win the third PGA Tour playoff event, at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. His 13-under-par 271 total was two shots better than steady Australian John Senden, who had closed within one of the lead after 15 holes.

Rose struggled through much of the back nine — missing four of five fairways and five of seven greens at one point — but sank a 35-foot chip shot from in front of the 17th green for birdie and a two-shot lead. Read More…
