From working together as teenagers at their local country club and teeing it up on the high school golf team to traveling together later in life on frequent buddies trips, Tom Parker and Brett Lee have kept their friendship going strong through the game of golf.
And in winning the 2013 Team Titleist Oceanside Experience Giveaway grand prize, Tom and Brett added a new chapter to their story this past December as they made their way out west to join us at the Oceanside Test Facility to enjoy the PGA Tour treatment.
The day started with a quick tour of the state of the art R&D facility, including a peek inside the Titleist Performance Institute, and then it was time for Tom and Brett to work with our team of expert fitters on dialing in a brand new bag of precision fitted Titleist golf clubs.
Throughout the day we got to know Tom and Brett a bit better, had a chance to hear some more of their stories and watched them hit a lot of golf balls. Watch the video above to see some of the scenes from the day and hear what they had to say about the experience.
While the journey for these two lifelong friends began some time ago, all of us here at Team Titleist feel very lucky to have been a part of this latest adventure.
Enjoy the new gear, guys!
And thanks again to all of the Team Titleist members who entered the sweeps last year.

The remarkable start for Titleist players on the PGA Tour continued this weekend as Scott Stallings became the 8th player through the first 10 PGA Tour tournaments on the new 2013-14 wrap-around season to win with a Titleist golf ball.
Stallings trusted his Pro V1x golf ball and Titleist clubs to emerge from the field and capture the Farmers Insurance Open for his third career PGA Tour title. With the win, Stallings also becomes the fourth Titleist full product line brand ambassador to win in the young season, joining Jimmy Walker (Frys.com Open, SONY Open in Hawaii), Webb Simpson (Shriners Hospitals for Children Open) and Zach Johnson (Hyundai Tournament of Champions).
In addition, Stallings was among 99 players in the 156-man field at Torrey Pines who put their trust in Titleist golf balls, more than five times the nearest competitor with 17. The same story was repeated on the PGA European and LPGA tours this week, where the overwhelming choice among players was the #1 ball in golf.
All told, a combined 257 players relied on Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls across the worldwide professional tours this week, more than five times the nearest competitor with 48.
To date, 1,569 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in competition on the 2014 worldwide professional tours, more than five times the nearest competitor with 272 and more than all competitors combined.
• • •
PGA TOUR: At the Farmers Insurance Open, Titleist topped the field in the golf ball (99), iron sets (42), sand, approach and lob wedges (166) and putter (61) categories.
Stallings fired a final round 4-under par 68 on Sunday that included a dramatic birdie on the final hole. On a day when finding fairways was a challenge for the entire field, Stallings split the 527-yard 18th with his drive, leaving 222 yards to the front of the green. As he explained in a post-round interview, laying up never entered his mind.
"You don't get very many opportunities to win golf tournaments on this tour," Stallings said. "I didn't necessarily understand the situation I was in as far as the score, but I did know I had an opportunity. ... I was playing to win."
Stallings blasted a new AP2 4-iron that cleared Devlin's Billabong, the water hazard fronting the 18th green on the South Course at Torrey Pines, leaving him two putts from 40 feet, which he converted for his closing birdie. His 9-under par 279 total would stand up as the remaining players finished, giving him a one-shot margin of victory over five players, including fellow Titleist Brand Ambassadors Marc Leishman and Graham DeLaet.
What's in Scott Stalling's Bag?
Golf Ball: Pro V1x Driver: 913D2 (8.5º) driver w/Aldila Rogue X Fairways: 913F (15º) fairway metal w/Aldila Rogue X Irons: AP2 714 (4-P) irons w/KBS Tour shafts Wedges: Vokey Design SM5 gap (50º), sand (54º) and lob (58º) wedges w/KBS Tour shafts Putter:Scotty Cameron Newport 2.6 putter
Statistically, Stallings led the Farmers Insurance Open field in Strokes Gained – Putting at 2.794. He was followed by rookie and fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Justin Thomas at 2.509. Thomas finished T10 on the leaderboard, his highest finish on the PGA TOUR.
In addition to finishing T2 on the leaderboard, Titleist Brand Ambassador Graham DeLaet relied upon his Pro V1x golf ball and 913D3 (7.5º loft) driver to finish 2nd in Driving Distance (302 ypd).
Marc Leishman, another player who trusted Titleist equipment from tee-through-green, tied for the lead among all players in Greens in Regulation at 77.78% (56 of 72). DeLaet tied for 5th in the same category (72.2%/52 of 72).
PGA EUROPEAN TOUR: At the Commercialbank Qatar Masters 80 players in the 125-man field relied upon Titleist golf balls, more than three times the nearest competitor with 22.
Titleist Brand Ambassador Mikko Ilonen posted a runner-up finish at the Commercialbank Qatar Masters. The Finn birdied both the 16th and 18th hole to complete a 6-under 66 that forced extra holes.
LPGA TOUR: Of the 108-player field, 78 players relied upon Titleist golf balls, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 9.

As the final round action is set to get underway at Torrey Pines, we wanted to give Team Titleist a closer look at what's inside the bags for a number of Titleist Brand Ambassadors who made the trip to La Jolla for the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open.
We've loaded up the slideshow above so you can see the Titleist gear players like Jordan Spieth, Marc Leishman, Bill Haas, Michael Kim, Jimmy Walker, Max Homa, Justin Thomas and Graham DeLaet (among others) put in play this week.
Enjoy the slideshow and here's to a great finish at Torrey Pines.

This week the PGA Tour moves southwest from the oasis resorts of Palm Springs to the beautiful cliffs of La Jolla on California's San Diego coast. The style of golf will contrast as dramatically as the change of scenery, as Torrey Pines will again present a stiff challenge for the 156-man field.
This is especially true of the 7,569-yard South Course, which ranked 8th toughest on Tour last season with a scoring average of 72.792, 0.792 strokes over par.
And as players gear up for a week where their skills will be put to the test, Titleist is the overwhelming top choice in golf balls at the Farmers Insurance Open with 99 players in the field of 156 relying upon a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, more than five times the nearest competitor with 17.
Titleist was also the favorite in the iron sets (42), sand, lob and approach wedge (166) and putter (61) categories.
As Team Titleist learned earlier this week, course conditions this year are anything but typical, reminding many players of the conditions they faced when Torrey hosted the 2008 U.S. Open.
"It's a different golf course," said Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman in a post-round interview. "The rough's up and the greens are firm and fast. Usually the rough's decent and the greens are soft."
Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth agreed, saying that this week there will be, "Just so much emphasis on that tee ball, because if you're in the rough with how firm the greens are, you've got to bounce it up, because the greens really aren't soft enough to hold the ball."
Add to this Torrey's ever-present defense in the form of its demanding poa annua greens and the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open could have the feel of an early major.
Check out the video above to get an inside-the-ropes view as we tagged along earlier in the week with players including Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jimmy Walker, Jordan Spieth, Bill Haas, Geoff Ogilvy, Billy Horschel, and John Merrick, among others, as they prepared to tackle Torrey Pines.
Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist!

Performance Engineered Models Now Available in Golf Shops Worldwide
FAIRHAVEN, Mass (Jan. 22, 2014) – Titleist, the #1 ball in golf, delivers even better performance and feel in its new 2014 NXT Tour, NXT Tour S, Velocity and DT Solo golf balls through innovative core, cover and aerodynamic technologies.
Every Titleist golf ball, including the industry-leading Pro V1 and Pro V1x, is precision engineered by Titleist Golf Ball R&D associates and manufactured in the company’s world-class owned and operated facilities to provide a meaningful performance and preference option. The new 2014 models offer the same renowned quality and consistency that have become synonymous with any golf ball stamped “Titleist.”
New NXT Tour and softer-feeling NXT Tour S provide exceptional distance and commanding short game scoring performance, exceeded only by Pro V1 and Pro V1x. Both new models have been improved with a reengineered softer compression core and cover so golfers will experience even softer feel.
Titleist R&D designed the 2014 Velocity with a reformulated, proprietary LSX core that produces a high initial ball speed for powerful distance. A new, spherically tiled 328 tetrahedral dimple design delivers a more penetrating trajectory with a shallower angle of descent for even more roll. The result is even more explosive distance on all full swing shots.
New DT Solo has been redesigned to provide the best combination of soft feel and distance in a DT yet. With its super soft compression core and soft ionomer cover, the 2014 model features a new spherically tiled 376 tetrahedral dimple pattern that contributes to even longer driver and iron distance while retaining the distinctly soft feel and consistency that DT players have come to love and trust.
“When we make an improvement to a Titleist golf ball, it’s in direct response to what golfers tell us they need and want,” said Bill Morgan, Senior Vice President of Titleist Golf Ball R&D. “We’re constantly in the field talking with golfers, capturing their launch conditions on all types of shots, and observing how different golf balls perform for their game. All of this information feeds the product development process and allows us to focus our design efforts and ultimately our prototype testing in ways that will enhance performance for these golfers.”
More than 40,000 golfers from around the world participated in the white-box testing and validation process, with golfers receiving prototype NXT Tour, NXT Tour S, Velocity or DT Solo golf balls for on-course evaluation. Player feedback was then gathered through Team Titleist and shared with Titleist R&D.
All new models are available in golf shops beginning today, January 22, 2014.
2014 NXT Tour Engineered for high performance, the 2014 Titleist NXT Tour golf ball utilizes advanced multi-component technology that delivers low driver and long iron spin for exceptionally long distance and scoring performance. It features a new proprietary softer compression dual core and a softer, thin Fusablend cover. The result is a softer, truer feel on all shots while maintaining its exceptional distance and excellent short game control on shots into and around the green that is only exceeded by Pro V1 and Pro V1x. NXT Tour retains its spherically tiled 302 octahedral dimple design that produces a piercing and stable ball flight for consistent distance and trajectory control.
Player Benefits • Exceptional distance • Consistent flight • Commanding short game spin and control • Softer feel on all shots • Excellent durability
Multi-component technology • Proprietary softer compression dual core • Softer, thin Fusablend cover • Spherically tiled 302 octahedral dimple design
(MSRP: $44/dozen; MAP: $33.99/dozen)
2014 NXT Tour S The new Titleist NXT Tour S golf ball is designed for players seeking NXT Tour performance – outstanding distance, consistent flight and commanding short game control – with an even softer compression feel. The new model has been reengineered with a proprietary softer compression, highly resilient core and softer, thin Fusablend cover to deliver a softer feel on all shots. (New NXT Tour S is even softer than the prior generation model as well as its 2014 NXT Tour counterpart.) NXT Tour S also retains its spherically tiled 302 octahedral dimple design for a piercing and stable flight.
NXT Tour S is available in both white and high optic yellow colors.
Player Benefits • Outstanding distance • Consistent flight • Commanding short game spin and control • Even softer feel on all shots • Excellent durability
Advanced technology • Reengineered softer compression, highly resilient core • Softer, thin Fusablend cover • Spherically tiled 302 octahedral dimple design
2014 Velocity The 2014 Titleist Velocity is powered for even more distance as the result of innovative design technology. New Velocity utilizes a reformulated, exclusive LSX core that produces a very fast ball speed, giving golfers explosive power off the tee and shorter approach shots into the green. A new, spherically tiled 328 tetrahedral dimple design with 7 different dimple sizes is highly symmetrical (three axes of symmetry) with a more uniform surface coverage. It delivers a more penetrating and soaring flight on all full swing shots for more precision and shallower angle of descent for more rollout. A softer compression core also provides a more playable feel in the short game.
Velocity is available in single (#1, 2, 3, 4) and double-digit (#00, 11, 22, 33) play numbers.
Player Benefits • More explosive distance on all shots • Deep downrange peak trajectory and shallower angle of descent for more roll • More playable feel in the short game • Tighter, more consistent ball flight
Advanced technology • Reformulated, proprietary LSX core • NAZ2 cover formulation • New spherically tiled 328 tetrahedral dimple design
(MSRP: $35/dozen; MAP: $26.99/dozen)
2014 DT SoLo The new Titleist DT SoLo golf balls have been redesigned to provide even longer distance on full shots along with the distinctly soft feel, greenside control and consistent quality that are the DT standard. 2014 DT Solo retains its super soft compression, fast core and soft ionomer cover. A new spherically tiled 376 tetrahedral dimple design, with a more uniform surface coverage, delivers a tighter, more consistent flight for even longer driver and iron distance. The combination of the super soft core and soft cover blend gives golfers a distinctly soft feel with responsive short game performance.
New DT Solo is available in both white and optic yellow colors.
Player Benefits • Distinctly soft compression feel • Longer distance with driver and irons • Responsive short game performance • Trusted quality and consistency
Advanced technology • Super soft compression, fast core • Soft ionomer cover blend • New spherically tiled 376 tetrahedral dimple design
(MSRP: $28/dozen; MAP: $19.99/dozen)
