There is a common thread that exists with the keys to success at the Open Championship - trust in your golf ball.

"It just breeds a lot of confidence to know that if I make the swing I'm supposed to make the ball is going to do what I'm used to it doing," said Pro V1x loyalist Bo Van Pelt.

And when you mix in the pressure of playing in a major, sometimes great shots can happen if you trust in your game and your golf ball. Just ask two-time winner of the Open Championship and Pro V1x loyalist Padraig Harrington...

"There is no doubt you can hit the best shot of your life when there is a little bit of adrenaline in your system."

Hear what else Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jason Dufner and Ben Curtis along with Pro V1x loyalist Louis Oosthuizen had to say in the video above.

At Muirfield, Team Titleist caught up with the newest official member of the PGA TOUR, Jordan Spieth, who gained his card after capturing the John Deere Classic in dramatic fashion.  Spieth was so confident about his play entering last week that he made sure he and his caddy had their passports ready to board the charter for Muirfield, a perk afforded to the participants of the John Deere Classic who were also playing in the Open Championship.

"I was just feeling really comfortable with my game," said Spieth while visiting the Titleist Support Vehicle on Tuesday. "I played well at Congressional and everything was coming together. I am really looking forward to this week."

Spieth didn't have much time to celebrate, as he had to catch the charter flight to Europe. He rested Monday and was seeing Muirfield for the first time on Tuesday, although its not his first time playing links golf.

Watch what the 19-year old Titleist golf ball loyalist says about his stunning win, his set composition for Muirfield, and how important his confidence in the golf ball will mean given the course and weather conditions this week.

This week we've talked a lot about the short game. We've heard from Master Craftsman Bob Vokey on wedge setup for The Open Championship and TPI Co-Founder Dave Phillips shared some advice on how to escape the infamous pot bunkers that cascade across the Muirfield layout.

And with the many different short game scenarios that are found on a Scottish links course, we've also enlisted PGA Professional James Sieckmann (one of the leading short game instructors in the game) to share some of his thoughts on wedge play at The Open Championship.

Check out the video above to see what James had to say about what it will take to execute shots when facing tight-lies, gusting winds and firm greens. He shares some great advice that we will definitely be taking to the course the next time we tee it up.

If the fast and firm conditions at Muirfield aren't enough of a test this week at the Open Championship, players will also be greeted by another local course design element that you won't want to bring into play - pot bunkers.

So what do you do if you find yourself climbing down into one of these bunkers?

Dave Phillips, co-founder of the Titleist Performance Institute, checks in and shares another great tip with Team Titleist on how to navigate these dreaded hazards.

And while you might see a lot of pot bunkers where you play, this tip is sure to help your sand game and hopefully lead to more sandies in your future.

Open Championship conditions vary year-to-year (if not minute-to-minute) but one constant is an emphasis on having the short game in top-form coming into the event. Sometimes that means taking a closer look at your wedge setup and making sure you're taking into consideration the turf along with the different short game shots that will be required to successfully navigate the terrain.

Team Titleist caught up with Master Craftsman Bob Vokey to get his take on what changes players might be making as they look to dial-in their wedge play at Muirfield and found out that a few little tweaks might go a long way.

Check out what Bob had to say in the video above.
