The PGA Tour's Texas Two Step continues this week in Fort Worth at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Rich in tradition, the tournament honors the history of golf by awarding its champion an official Scottish tartan plaid jacket along with a spot on Colonial's Wall of Champions - a marble facade that greets players as they step onto the first tee.

 And in hopes of adding their name to the famed wall, 75 players in the field will trust a Titleist golf ball for their success, five times the nearest competitor with 15 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the iron (29 - tied), sand, lob and approach wedge (104) and putter (42) categories. 

Check out the video above featuring some of the action from earlier this week at Colonial and good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!


The best in the women's college game have made the trip to Tulsa Country Club for this year's NCAA Division I Women's Championship. And with team and individual honors on the line, it's sure to be another exciting week of collegiate golf.

This year an overwhelming 112 of the 126 players in the field are trusting Titleist golf balls for their success. That's more than 22 times the nearest competitor with 5 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice in the sand, lob and approach wedge (151) category and shared the top spot in the iron (34) category.

Good luck to all of the players in the field!


For most of us here on Team Titleist, golf usually tops the list of things we like to do in our free time. But what about the guys who play the game for a living? How do they unwind or stay busy when they’re away from the course?

Well, a number of Team Titleist members asked us to find out, so we hit the road and caught up with a few of the guys on tour to hear what they had to say.

Check out the video above and hear what John Peterson, Billy Horschel, Brendon De Jonge, Geoff Ogilvy and Zach Johnson like to do when they're not grinding it out at the office.
