Nathan Ollhoff, Head Golf Professional at Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minnesota, understands that golf is an aspirational pursuit.  All golfers want to get better and our enjoyment of the game is tied closely to our improvement.

To keep his members on the right path, Nathan addresses every phase of the game, whether it’s refining swing technique, improving a player’s mental approach to the game, or developing proper practice habits.

As Nathan puts it, “We want to work hard, but we also want to work smart.”

Equipment is also an important consideration and helping Interlachen members find the right golf ball is a particular point of emphasis for Nathan and his staff.

“When we go through golf ball fitting the ultimate goal is to make sure that members enjoy the game more and ultimately score better. Playing the proper golf ball will make a big difference in their games.”

Thank you, Nathan for helping so many players improve and for showing them how to enjoy the journey. And thank you for your continued support of Titleist.

It was certainly a weekend to remember for Titleist golf ball loyalist Troy Merritt (Pro V1) at the Quicken Loans National. After posting a 10-under-par 61 and setting a new single round scoring record on Saturday at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, Merritt closed with a 4-under-par 67 to cap off an 18-under-par 266 victory total and earn his first career PGA Tour title.

And to put an exclamation mark to his first win, Merritt rolled in a 34-foot putt for birdie on his 72nd hole to finish three shots clear of the field including Rickie Fowler (Pro V1x) who finished in solo second and David Lingmerth (Pro V1x) who finished alone in third place.

Titleist Brand Ambassadors Justin Thomas (Pro V1x), Bill Haas (Pro V1x) and Jason Bohn (Pro V1) along with golf ball loyalist Carl Pettersson (Pro V1x) were among a group of six players who finished T-4.

THE COUNTS:

Titleist golf balls have now been played to win 24 times on the 2014-15 PGA Tour, nearly five times the nearest competitor with five.

Titleist was the top choice at the Quicken Loans National with 76 players in the field trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That's more than five times the nearest competitor with 14 and more than all competitors combined.
