Welcome to Whistling Straits, home of the 97th PGA Championship!
Let's get right to the action...
First stop, we catch up with Jordan Spieth as he consults with his coach and recently named PGA of America Teacher of the Year Cameron McCormick.
After work on the range, it's time to get to work on the course.
Jordan stares down his Pro V1x.
And before he hits the course...
Rickie Fowler marks his Pro V1x.
Next we see Adam Scott as he admires a tee shot.
Full extension = Full power for Titleist young gun...
The tools of the trade for... any guesses?
From one C.H. to another... Charley Hoffman launches a drive.
Then it's back to the range for us where we meet up with Jimmy Walker and his coach, Butch Harmon.
After some swings, Jimmy signs a few (okay, a lot of autographs) before heading out to the course.
But we're headed to the practice green. Who's Scotty Cameron is this?
The proud owner is Rafa Cabrera-Bello.
Cameron Tringale was also putting in some work on the greens...
Along with Kevin Na.
A closer look at Kevin's gamer.
Back to the range for us and Morgan Hoffmann puts in some work with his irons.
Back out on the course, we bump into Scott Piercy...
And the next day he gives us a signature "HiYa!"
The forecast is looking good for the tournament rounds but the first day of practice told a different story.
But Jordan Spieth and...
his caddie Michael Greller were prepared.
Now let's take a walk around Whistling Straits to enjoy the endless number of beautiful views.
First stop... the 1st tee, naturally.
The 408-yard Par-4 hole is a great way to kick off your round.
Playing at 507-yards, the par-4 8th hole is certainly a test...
And you don't want to miss it right.
This hole yielded a 4.258 scoring average after round 1 and only 10% of the field made birdie.
Sitting along the shores of Lake Michigan, the coastline holes of Whistling Straits are breathtaking...
And challenging to say the least.
Nothing but blue skies and blue waters...
A few clouds...
And a lot of bunkers.
And we mean a lot. More than a thousand is the estimate but nobody knows how many for sure.
And we even asked a local Team Titleist member, Tyler H. We bumped into Tyler, who was volunteering at the event...
And we volunteered to give him a behind-the-scenes look at the Titleist Tour Van.
Who's name will be at the top on Sunday?
They'll have to stare down "Dyeabolical" - the menacing 18th hole at Whistling Straits. Good luck to all of Team Titleist this weekend!
The final major test of the season is underway at Whistling Straits and the best in golf look to finish atop the leaderboard at the 97th PGA Championship.
From walking past more than 1,000 bunkers to taking in the scenic views of Lake Michigan, we collected our favorite images while players dialed in their games for the week ahead.
As the field of PGA Professionals and TOUR players sets its sights on hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy, 80 players will trust a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball. That’s more than double the nearest competitor with 30 and more than all competitors combined.
Titleist also led the field in the irons (42) category, Titleist Vokey Design wedges were the top choice among players in the approach, sand and lob wedge (130) category and Scotty Cameron putters (56) led the putter category.
With the weekend action only one round away, join us for a tour around the grounds and enjoy some highlight images in the gallery above.
Best of luck to all of #TeamTitleist and here’s to a finish for the books at the 97th PGA Championship!
