On his journey to the Masters, over his 290 career holes at Augusta National, including Sunday's final two playoff holes, there is one piece of equipment that Bubba Watson has used on every shot: His golf ball.

Bubba spoke to Team Titleist about the importance of finding the best golf ball for your game and why he fits best into Titleist Pro V1x, which you can watch in the above video.

"You don't play the ball if you don't have confidence in it," said Watson, he said. "If it doesn't feel good to you then you're not going to perform well. For me, it's been 20 years and it's still performing well."

At the 2012 Masters Tournament, more players are trusting Titleist golf balls in their quest for a green jacket than any other golf ball.

Fifty-three players in the field at Augusta National are relying on Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls for their success, more than four times the nearest competitor with 11 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist is also first in iron sets (26); sand, lob and approach wedges (91); and putters.

Through the first three months of 2012, Titleist golf ball players have combined for 38 wins across the worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with six and more than all other golf balls combined.

On the PGA Tour, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players have won 10 times this season, nine more than the nearest competitor with one.

As the curtains rise today on the 76th edition of the Masters Tournament, more players will be teeing up Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls at Augusta National than all other golf balls combined.

Team Titleist spoke with several players in the field – Nick Watney (Pro V1x), Hunter Mahan (Pro V1x), Jason Dufner (Pro V1), Webb Simpson (Pro V1x), and Mark Wilson (Pro V1x) and 2007 Masters champ Zach Johnson (Pro V1x) – about the importance of being able to trust your golf ball on golf's biggest stage, under the game's most demanding conditions.

Video: Scott Stallings' Lucky Pencil

About a month before Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings won for the first time on the PGA Tour, he received a small gift from his caddie, Josh Graham: A pencil from Augusta National Golf Club, green with gold lettering.

"This is going to be the goal for the rest of the year," Josh told him.

Scott put the pencil in his yardage book, not knowing he would soon be using it to record six back-nine Sunday birdies at the Greenbrier Classic – a run that propelled him to a playoff victory and his first invitation to the Masters.

Team Titleist talked to Scott recently about his lucky pencil and the attention it got after his victory. Check it out in the above video.
