Titleist golf ball loyalist Mirim Lee birdied the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to capture the Meijer LPGA Classic for her first-career LPGA Tour victory. Lee trusted a Pro V1x to lead the field in driving distance with an average drive of 280 yards, taking advantage of that strong display off the tee to close with a 69 for a four day total of 14-under-par.

With another this week, Titleist’s year-to-date victory count advances to 107. That's more than four times the nearest competitor with 26 and more than all competitors combined.

In total, 15,441 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in competition on the 2014 worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 2,530 and more than all competitors combined.

The PGA Championship is under way and off to an exciting start. The best players in the world, including 98 of the top 100 golfers, will be competing to win the prestigious Wanamaker Trophy in hopes of ending the 2014 major season on a high note. 

 With history at stake and valuable Ryder Cup points up for grabs, the stakes are high. And when it comes to performing their best on the biggest stage, Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 81 players in the field trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That’s more than three times the nearest competitor with 26 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the irons (42) and sand, lob and approach wedge (133) categories.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!

It's no secret that placing your tee shot in the perfect position is going to help you set up the ideal approach into the green. So how can we help improve our chances of getting into that prime position off the tee?

As Titleist Staff Professional Michael Breed explains in our latest episode of 18 Shots Presented by Titleist, it starts with planning the right strategy and playing the best shot for the shape of the hole. Michael also walks us through his approach for how to attack a hole that requires a cut shot and he also demonstrates his keys to executing a controlled fade.

Welcome to the 96th PGA Championship

Countless hours of practice have been logged. Hundreds of competitive rounds have been played. And all of the preparation brings us to the final major of the 2014 PGA Tour season – the PGA Championship.

It was a big Sunday for Titleist Brand Ambassador Geoff Ogilvy this past weekend at the Barracuda Championship where he not only took home top honors but also punched his ticket to this week's PGA Championship, earned a spot at next year's Tournament of Champions in Kapalua and jumped up 65 spots on the FedEx Cup standings.

Geoff also became the first player to win on the PGA Tour with a new Titleist 915 prototype driver in his bag.

As Geoff said in his post round interview, "It was a satisfying win", and we would certainly agree.
