The #1 Ball at the Evian Championship

The fifth and final major of the 2014 LPGA season is off and running in Evian-les-Bains, France and the drama is building at the Evian Championship as we head into the weekend.

And in this final major test, Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 86 players trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x for their success. That’s more than 10-times the nearest competitor with 8, and more than all competitors combined.

The birdie putts are dropping, the ladies are posting low numbers and there are only 36-holes left to be played before a champion is crowned.

We hope you’ll join us in wishing the best of luck to all of Team Titleist this weekend!

The 2014 FedExCup Finale

It has been another exciting year on the PGA Tour and the 2013-2014 journey culminates this weekend at East Lake Golf Club where the top 29 players in the FedExCup rankings have gathered for the season finale – The TOUR Championship.

With an $8 million purse, a $1.44 million winner’s share and a $10 million bonus for the FedExCup Champion on the line, players will need to remain focused and keep their nerves in check as they take on the Donald Ross layout.

"I'm looking at it like we are just at a golf tournament...and let the other stuff play out on Sunday afternoon," said Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Bubba Watson.

And for others like Pro V1x loyalist and last week’s winner at the 2014 BMW Championship Billy Horschel it’s about embracing the nerves and having a game plan in place.

"I always get nervous, I always have butterflies before a round of golf. I think the majority of the guys out here do...Personally, I prepare for a round of golf mentally, I try to control my breathing and calm down".

No matter the strategy or approach, we’re looking forward to another exciting finish at the TOUR Championship.

BY THE NUMBERS: 2014 TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP

 This week at the TOUR Championship, Titleist is the top golf ball choice with 19 players in the limited field of 29 trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. 

Titleist was also the top choice in the driver (10), fairway wood (16), hybrid (5), iron (11) and approach, sand and lob wedge (27) categories.
