Woods wins The Open with 14 Titleist clubs in his bag

Tiger Woods confirmed his reputation as the world’s most outstanding golfer when he cruised to an eight-stroke victory over the world’s best golfers in the 129th Open Championship on the Old Course at St Andrews.

It was a performance that made Woods, 24, the youngest man ever to complete the Grand Slam of all four Majors and means that he will now travel to next month’s USPGA Championship at Valhalla attempting to become the first golfer since Ben Hogan in 1953 to win three Majors in one calendar year.

Woods was one of 45 players in the field using the Titleist Titanium 975D driver – more than any other brand of driver. He also used Titleist fairway metal, prototype Titleist forged irons, Vokey Design sand and lob wedges and a Scotty Cameron prototype putter.

This week proved to be a great week for Titleist because, in addition to Woods winning The Open, Brad Faxon, winner of the BC Open, and Karrie Webb, winner of the US Women’s Open, both won using a full bag of Titleist clubs.
