The dramatic win by Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth this past week at the Valspar Championship showcased some amazing short game shots that paved the way for his eventual playoff victory.  

And to provide you with some exclusive Team Titleist coverage, we’re bringing you a collection of behind the scenes videos featuring Jordan from a recent golf ball R&D shoot where we explore the short game and how players approach a number of shots.

In these videos, Jordan goes in-depth on how he approaches the 30-yard flop shot, his strategy and club of choice on a 40-yard pitch shot and his technique when faced with a 50-yard shot to a pin located at the back of the green, with plenty of green to work with.

These videos are a must watch if you’re looking for some great insight into what goes through the mind of one of the best players in the world as he looks to dial-in his scoring shots.

This week the PGA Tour reaches the final leg of its Florida swing, as attention turns to Bay Hill Club & Lodge for the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

 The signature hole at Bay Hill is the iconic par-4 18th. It's one of the more generous driving holes on the course, but the approach shot, to a wide, shallow green fronted by water and rocks and guarded in back by bunkers, is among the most difficult on Tour.

Last year, the 18th ranked as the most difficult hole of the tournament, with a 4.298 stroke average. Players found the water 24 times in 2014 and six players recorded scores of triple-bogey or worse. Because it's so challenging and because it's the last chance for players to make birdie, the 18th has provided a highlight reel full of exciting, do-or-die finishes.

And with only three events remaining before The Masters, players who have a successful week at Bay Hill will take away an abundance of positive momentum as we march toward the first major championship of the season.

Check out the slideshow above for an inside the ropes tour and get ready for another dramatic finish at Bay Hill.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth claimed his second career PGA Tour victory on Sunday, relying on a Pro V1x golf ball and Titleist golf clubs green-to-tee as he won in dramatic playoff fashion at the Valspar Championship.

Jordan displayed a masterful short game on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort, as evidenced by the following critical up-and-downs that he executed on the back 9 during final round action.

• 18 - Up & Down to save par to get into the playoff.

• 17 - Up & Down from right rough to 6 feet to save par.

• 16 - Up & Down from right bunker to 3 feet to save par.

• 12 - Up & Down from right rough to 15 inches for par.

Spieth's setup includes four Vokey SM5 wedges, but his lob wedge requires special attention each week on Tour. Vokey Tour Representative Aaron Dill provided some more detail:

"Jordan brings both his 60-04 L and 60-08 M from the Vokey Spin Milled 5 line to each Tour stop. He will switch based on the firmness of the golf course from week to week. He also really likes a much smaller profile on his 60, so we always grind special ones for him."

Let's take a closer look at the winning setup that the young gun used to outlast the field in Tampa.
