The winning ways continued for Titleist golf ball players this week, as seven players on the worldwide professional golf tours entered the Winner's Circle in China, South Africa, Denmark, Korea and in the United States.

All told, Titleist players have now accumulated 159 wins around the globe this season. That's nearly seven times more wins than the nearest competing brand with just 23 and more than all competing brands combined.

Congratulations to all of the Titleist winners! Let’s take a look at this past week’s Titleist tour highlights…
