Titleist congratulates Adam Scott on FedExCup Playoff victory

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. -- To be at your competitive best means never counting yourself out, giving everything you have until the final shot, and having total confidence in your equipment. Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott proved this and more at The Barclays on Sunday by rallying to earn his first career FedExCup Playoffs victory. Relying upon the Pro V1 golf ball and a complete bag of Titleist equipment, the Masters champion fired a final round bogey-free 66 for his second win of the season, vaulting him to No. 2 in the Official World Golf Rankings.
