The most successful golf balls at The RBC Heritage

Which golf balls claimed top 5 finishes at RBC Heritage? Paul Miller kept track so you don’t have to

 

A green jacket one week and a tartan one the next – that is how Scottie Scheffler rolls his Titleist Pro V1s these days!

Another superb performance that saw him climb to the top of the leaderboard after a 63 in Round 3 and powered on home to eventually win by 3 shots.

But what balls were the top five players playing over the week? Below shows what those finishing in the top five were teeing up and how it changed throughout the week.

Titleist has once again dominated with only the Srixon Z Star Diamond being the only non-Titleist golf ball used by anyone from the Top 5 by the end of the week.

Amongst the final Top 5 it was the Titleist Pro V1x that featured the most – 5 of the 8 players making up the Top 5 opting to play that version of the Titleist ball.

Whilst the Pro V1x might have been the most popular, the 1st and 2nd players (Scheffler and Theegala) both played the Titleist Pro V1,

The only non-Titleist ball to feature in the eventual Top 5 was the Srixon Z Star Diamond played by Sepp Straka.

Top 5 Golf Balls Used At The RBC Heritage


1) Scottie Scheffler – Titleist Pro V1

Despite being a TaylorMade staffer, Scheffler has stuck with his trusty Pro V1 golf ball, which he has been using back since his 2013 U.S. Junior Amateur victory.

Titleist is currently running a 4 for 3 offer, so it is a great time to purchase if you are a Pro V1 player or want to see if they might rub the Scheffler magic off on your game. This is limited time offer and so get in whilst stock lasts.

2) Sahith Theegala – Titleist Pro V1

Theegala only dropped out of the Top 5 after Round 2 and eventually ended up finishing in sole 2nd position.

Just like Scheffler he is a Pro V1 player and as stated above, they are currently available on a 4 for 3 offer,

=3) Wyndham Clark – Titleist Pro V1x

Wyndham Clark did not feature in the Top 5 rounds 1-3.

But with a final round 65 he rocketed up the leaderboard to finish joint 3.

One of 5 players in the Top 5 to play the Titleist Pro V1x, which tends to give you a slightly higher flight and more spin than the Pro V1.

Like the Pro V1, it is also currently on a 4 for 3 offer – whilst stock lasts.

=3) Patrick Cantlay – Titleist Pro V1x

Patrick Cantlay, as well as taking the same amount of shots at Wyndham Clark, also plays the Titleist Pro V1x.

=5) Justin Thomas – Titleist Pro V1x

Titleist Pro V1x is also the ball of choice for Justin Thomas.

Another player who did not feature in the Top 5 all week but a final round 65, joint lowest round of the day with Wyndham Clark, secured him a joint 5th finishing spot.

=5) Patrick Rodgers – Titleist Pro V1x

Yet another Titleist Pro V1x player, Patrick Rogers was in the Top 5 all week.

He scored 66 in both the 1st and 2nd rounds before posting 68 and 70 over the weekend to eventually finish joint 5th.

=5) J.T. Poston – Titleist Pro V1x

The final Titleist Pro V1x player is J.T. Poston – the Round 1 leader after posting a 63.

He couldn’t quite keep the low scoring going and after weekend rounds of 70 and 69 he also finished joint 5th.

=5) Sepp Straka – Srixon Z Star Diamond

Sepp Straka is the final player in the Top 5 and the only non-Titleist player amongst the list!

He had a great week, never being out of the Top 5, and played in the final group on Sunday/Monday.

Sadly could not exert any pressure on Scheffler down the stretch and closed with a final round of 72.

His ball of choice – Srixon Z Star Diamond – is also currently on a 4 for 3 offer.
