Tiger and Titleist win again

12.01am 22nd August 2000 - Sponsorship & Events

Tiger Woods created a major slice of history when he won the 82nd USPGA Championship at Valhalla. In the process he made it another great day for Titleist because the champion won his fifth Major title with 14 of their clubs in his bag.

Woods has made a habit of setting new standards and in the steaming heat at Valhalla he achieved a few more with a sensational extra time victory over the brave Bob May. It was a victory that made Woods the first golfer since Ben Hogan in 1953 to win three of the world’s four Major titles in one calendar year.

He now heads into next year’s Masters at Augusta National with a realistic chance of becoming the first man in history to hold all four Major titles at the same time. Woods is currently dominating the game like no other golfer since Jack Nicklaus and he is doing so with the help of a bag full of Titleist clubs. He achieved his USPGA success using a Titleist Titanium 975D driver, a Titleist Pro Trajectory fairway metal, Titleist forged prototype irons, Vokey design sand and lob wedges and a Scotty Cameron Pro Platinum putter. To make it an even more special day for Titleist Bob May, the gallant loser, was using a Titleist Professional ball and wearing FootJoy shoes
