More from the official Titleist press release: "Titleist golf clubs also found momentous player approval and achievement in 2011, driven by the revolutionary Titleist 910 metals line and new 712 series of AP, CB and MB irons. Titleist’s counts in each of the metals categories on the PGA Tour increased versus the prior year and featured more winners than any other brand across all three (drivers, fairways and hybrids). At the AT&T National in July, the first week the new 712 Series irons were available, 16 players transitioned with overwhelming success. In fact, Titleist Brand Ambassador Nick Watney relied upon the New AP2 irons to win the prestigious event in convincing fashion. After Watney’s win, four more players went on to capture PGA TOUR titles with 712 series irons. Titleist continued its consecutive streak as the most played iron on the PGA TOUR since 2005, to go along with its PGA TOUR-leading 20 victories in 2011."
Watney is a Las Vegas Golf Region resident who works with Las Vegas' Butch Harmon at the Butch Harmon School of Golf located at Rio Secco Golf Club. Rio Secco is a resort Las Vegas golf course designed by Rees Jones. It is also home to the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge and the T-Mates female caddies.
