Titleist staff player Steve Stricker climbed to World No.2 as a result of his victory in the latest US PGA Tour Fed-Ex series event - the Deutsche Bank Championship - using the Titleist 909D3 driver, Titleist 755 irons and Pro V1 ball.

His 17-under-par total at TPC Boston earned a one-shot victory over fellow Titleist player Jason Dufner. Stricker also used a 906F2 3-wood, 909H hybrid, 54 and 60-degree Titleist Vokey Design wedges and wore the latest FootJoy SYNR-GTM golf shoes.

Drive for show, putt for dough, they say. Well Justin Johnson proved the master at both disciplines in the Deutsche Bank Championship. He was the longest driver at an average of 315 yards and used TaylorMade's new Penta TP golf ball, introduced two weeks ago, as well as the TaylorMade's R9 driver.

Johnson, who tied for fourth place also averaged 25.3 putts per round to leads the stats for least putts for the week.

Yonex player Ryo Iishikawa (17) captured the Fujisankei Classic on the Japan Golf Tour and secured his place as one of Greg Norman's two Captain's picks for the Presidents Cup to be played at Hardings Park, San Francisco from October 6-11. The other pick on the international team is Adam Scott while US captain Fred Couples chose Hunter Mahan and US Open winner Lucas Glover.

Ishikawa used the latest Yonex NANOV Nextage 430cc driver and Yonex NANOV Tour forged irons to win by five shots and lead the Japanese rankings with almost $US1million. He jumps to No.47 in the world.
