With dreams of hoisting the Claret Jug as 2013 Champion Golfer of the year, 156 players made the journey to Muirfield for the playing of the 142nd Open Championship.

The conditions at Muirfield are dry, firm and fast, which has elevated the difficulty of scoring and level of competition for The Open. And with so much on the line, 91 players in the field of 156 are trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success this week – that’s more than four times the nearest competitor with 21 players and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist is also the top choice in the iron (39) and sand, lob and approach wedge (142) categories.

For some, like Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jimmy Walker, Graham DeLaet and Bud Cauley, this week marked their first start at The Open.

While others, like Titleist Brand Ambassadors Zach Johnson, Webb Simpson, Adam Scott who are joined by Pro V1x loyalists Bubba Watson, Angel Cabrera and Padraig Harrington in pursuit of another major to add to their résumé.

With Muirfield not wavering, a Sunday finish atop of the iconic yellow leaderboard will most certainly require a historic performance. Enjoy the weekend, have your early alarm or tee times set for Sunday and be sure to root for your favorite members of #TeamTitleist.
