Home to the RBC Heritage since the very first playing in 1969, Harbour Town Golf Links demands a lot from your game. Just ask the newly crowned Masters Champion, – Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth.

“I really, really love this golf course. The greens are phenomenal; it requires all types of shots," said Spieth, who comes into the week sitting atop the PGA Tour's FedExCup points race.

 "You've got to be smart.”

Known for its small greens and tight dogleg fairways, the demanding 6,973 yard, par-71 Pete Dye design puts a premium on shot-making and course management.

“I like that you have to think your way around [the course],” said Titleist Brand Ambassador and South Carolina native Ben Martin. “You look at the scorecard and the length, and it doesn't look that hard, but it's a lot of picking your spots and knowing where to miss it.”

And if the off-shore winds start to blow, players will literally need to hold onto their hats and remember that par is a very good score.

Check out the photo gallery above for some inside-the-ropes action from earlier in the week.

Good luck to all of Team Titleist this weekend!

What does it feel like to add a new chapter to the history of the Masters? This is a question that Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth was able to ponder early Sunday evening as he donned the winner’s green jacket at Augusta National Golf Club.

“It's incredible. It's one of the best feelings I've ever felt,” said Spieth. “This was arguably the greatest day of my life.”

Spieth orchestrated an epic performance that culminated with a record-tying 18-under total (64-66-70-70), and a comfortable Sunday walk up to the 18th green, where he tapped-in to win his first major championship by four shots.

“I'll never forget watching the front of the hole as the last tap-in went in the front edge. There was no need for crazy celebrations,” said Spieth.

“At that point I was just really, really pleased with the whole week, being out on top, being able to stay on top and to conquer my favorite tournament in the world.”

Congratulations, Jordan!
