Daniel Hillier wins British Masters with Titleist
New Zealander claims first DP World Tour title
Titleist Brand Ambassador Daniel Hillier played his final four holes in 5 under par to win his first DP World Tour title. The 24-year-old New Zealander – gaming a NEW Pro V1x golf ball, TSR3 driver and full bag of Titleist equipment – played The Belfry’s 15th through 17th holes in eagle-birdie-eagle to seize the two-shot victory.
On the par-5 15th, Hillier used his Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 to drain a 40-foot eagle putt. From a fairway bunker, he knocked his Pro V1x for a tap-in on the par-4 16th. And on 17, he hit his second shot to 6 feet and rolled his Pro V1x in for his second eagle in three holes. “I’m over the moon and a bit lost for words,” Hillier said. “Those last few holes are going to take a while to process I think.”

NEW T-SERIES IRONS LAUNCH ON DPWT
Rozner put new T100 models (3-5 irons) in the bag in irons after his testing session: “I've always been a blade fan, and to be honest, this visually, when you set down it looks like a blade. So, I'm really happy.
I also get a little bit more height, which was what I was looking for the last few weeks. So, this is great. I think this is going to be perfect for the people who want the look of a blade, look for a little bit of forgiveness as well, and a really good first impression.” “In one word, sweeter,” Rozner said on the feeling of new T100.
And you just get that little bit more forgiveness as well. Golf's hard enough. Why make it any harder? … Being used to the MBs, you're still looking for something quite soft, even in the longer irons. I think that the T100 really, you get the best of both worlds. It still feels really soft, but you just get that extra bit of forgiveness as well.”

Langer topped a leader board that featured eight Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball players in the final top 10, including runner-up Steve Stricker, who has finished worse than second just once (T5) in his last six starts.
