Titleist staffer Ben Curtis praised the state of his short game as the defining factor behind his first PGA Tour victory in six years.
The 2003 Open champion, who claimed his fourth career title with a two-shot triumph at the Texas Open, trusted a full bag of Titleist equipment including the Titleist 913 D3 Driver, Titleist AP1 712 Irons and Vokey Design wedges.
The cheap titleist ap1 712 irons introduces the new high performance AP1 irons for avid golfers building upon the high technology design and resounding success of the original AP irons. The Titleist R&D team's advanced research group has been conducting extensive sound and vibration analysis aimed at reducing the harsh lower frequency vibration that causes poor feel in irons.
“Every part of my game came together this week,” said Curtis, who ranked first in greens in regulation at TPC San Antonio on 68.1%, as well as second in driving accuracy with 73.2%. “I’ve been hitting it pretty well all year and was finally able to put the short game in there as well. That was the huge difference.”
Curtis, who strode across the finish line wearing FJ DryJoys Tour shoes and the FJ StaSof glove, also caught fire on the greens averaging 27.3 putts a round and ranking third in strokes-gained putting on 2.061. But of all his putts holed in Texas, it was the par save on the penultimate that meant the most.
Curtis, owning a one-shot on the short par-4 17th, bladed his approach shot with a wedge over the green and then chipped over a mound and onto the edge of the green some 22-feet away. “That was big,” added the 34-year-old from Ohio. “My second shot was sitting in an old divot and I bladed it over the green. That was the worse place to go and the third shot was probably the hardest I had all week.
“I was just trying to get it down there somewhere on the right level to give myself a good look. It was the best putt I hit all week and at just the right time.”
