Seeing a tee shot launch perfectly into the sky and soar down the fairway is something that all golfers love to see - especially if they're admiring their own drive. And if you can squeeze out a few more yards off the tee, well, we're guessing that would just about always be a welcome bonus.

So how do we make this happen? Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott recently checked in with Team Titleist to share a few keys on how to add a little extra distance off the tee. 

Key #1: Tee the ball slightly higher than usual. This simple adjustment produces a higher launch angle and less spin, a great combination for soaring drives.

Key #2: Focus on a full finish. This key will keep you in balance and give you a much better chance of making contact with the sweetspot of the driver.

So remember... a balanced swing combined with solid, center-of-the-face contact is going to give you better distance potential than swinging out of your shoes.

Give these keys a try and you'll be on your way to achieving power through control. Here’s to going long!

Titleist Brand Ambassador Chesson Hadley gave us a performance to remember this past week, engineering rounds of 68-65-67-67 as he captured his first PGA Tour victory at the Puerto Rico Open.  

Just a week earlier, Team Titleist was lucky to have spent some time with the PGA Tour rookie as he was getting prepared for the Honda Classic. Armed with questions from Team Titleist members, Chesson gave us a little insight into how he prepares for a tournament and shared his thoughts on getting acclimated to life on the PGA Tour.

He also talked about his goal to qualify for a major championship this year… and with his win in Puerto Rico, he can check that box as he earned a spot in the 2014 PGA Championship.

Check out the video above and get to know more about the latest Titleist “young gun” to enter the winners circle.

Congratulations, Chesson!

With four rounds in the 60’s that featured a total of 24 birdies and one eagle, Titleist Brand Ambassador Chesson HadleyTitleist Brand Ambassador Chesson Hadley was in top form this past weekend as he charged up the leaderboard and captured his first career PGA Tour title at the Puerto Rico Open. And to put an exclamation mark on the win, Hadley closed with back-to-back birdies on the final two holes at Trump International GC to win by two shots.

With Hadley’s win, Titleist golf ball players have now earned 27 victories across the Worldwide Professional Tours in 2014, more than four times the nearest competitor with 6 and more than all other golf balls combined.

In total, 3,589 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in competition on the 2014 worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 560 and more than all competitors combined.

Let’s review the action from Rio Grande, Puerto Rico in this week’s Team Titleist Tour Recap.

PGA TOUR: Puerto Rico Open

Hadley (Pro V1x) was one of 81 players who relied on a Titleist golf ball at the event, more than four times the nearest competitor with 18 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the field favorite in the sand, lob and approach wedge (126) and putter (53) categories.

Hadley, who also trusts a full bag of Titleist golf clubs, posted a 21-under, 267 total to claim his first victory. The win comes in just the 13th career PGA Tour appearance for the 26-year-old and it earns him a two-year tour exemption along with spots in the 2014 Players Championship, 2014 PGA Championship and the 2015 Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

What's in Chesson Hadley's Bag?

Golf Ball: Pro V1x
Driver: 913D3 (9.5º) driver with Mitsubishi Diamana Blue 72 X shaft
Fairways: 910F (13.5º) fairway metal with Mitsubishi Diamana Blue 82 X shaft
Utility Iron: 712U (3) with Mitsubishi Fubuki AX H500 X shaft
Irons: MB irons (4-9) with Dynamic Gold X100 shafts
Wedges: New Vokey Design Spin Milled 5 (SM5) gap (52º), sand (56º) and lob (60º) wedges with Dynamic Gold Spinner shafts

Hadley also becomes the first rookie winner since fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth won the John Deere Classic in July.

"It's incredible. It's a dream come true,” Hadley said after the win. “This is what you dream of as a 6-year-old out in the bunker, hitting bunker shots on the range … It hasn't sunk in yet. It'll be nice to sleep on it and wake up in the morning knowing I'm a PGA Tour champion and nobody can ever take that away from me.”

Hadley won twice last year on the Web.com Tour, capturing the Rex Hospital Open in his hometown of Raleigh, N.C., and the season-ending Web.com Tour Championship.

Hadley’s fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador, Ben Martin closed with a 66 to finish in solo 3rd at 17-under 271.

Equipment Note: Hadley carries three new Vokey Design Spin Milled 5 (SM5) wedges and credited his victory to his chip-in for birdie on No. 5.

“Probably the shot that won me the tournament was the chip in on 5. I mean I was dead over there and I hit the nastiest little nipper over there, and it snuck in the left door.”

Vokey Design Spin Milled 5 (SM5) wedges will be available in golf shops beginning March 14th.

TITLEIST LEADERBOARD: Hadley’s victory marks the 11th for Titleist golf ball loyalists on the 2013-14 PGA TOUR, more than five times the nearest competitor with 2.

Titleist Brand Ambassadors have now won 7 events on the PGA TOUR. Along with Hadley's success, other victories by Titleist Brand Ambassadors this season include: Jimmy Walker (Frys.com Open, SONY Open in Hawaii, AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am), Webb Simpson (Shriners Hospitals for Children Open), Zach Johnson (Hyundai Tournament of Champions) and Scott Stallings (Farmers Insurance Open).

A Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball was also played by the winners at the CIMB Classic, McGladrey Classic, OHL Classic at Mayakoba and by Bubba Watson (Pro V1x) at the Northern Trust Open.

It is a busy week out on tour with the WGC-Cadillac Championship underway at the newly redesigned Blue Monster at Trump Doral and the Puerto Rico Open in full swing at Trump International GC in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico.

And to make sure the players in both fields are ready to roll on the greens, the Scotty Cameron team is on-site in both locations and they're giving Team Titleist a closer look at all of the action.

So take a walk around the practice greens at Doral and Puerto Rico by clicking on the slideshow above and see the collection of Scotty Cameron putters that made their way out on tour this week.

Enjoy and good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this week.

When it comes to driving, the best players in the world know that distance is only half of the equation. The other half - accuracy.

This is why the PGA Tour’s “Overall Driving” statistic combines both of these elements when factoring the rankings. And outside of making that perfect swing, having the right strategy off the tee and selecting the right club for the shot that lies ahead can make all of the difference when it comes to finding the fairway.

Enter Titleist Brand Ambassador Geoff Ogilvy with a little advice on how you can get more comfortable and gain some confidence with your 3-wood.

“You’ll get a lot better with your 3-wood if maybe you can take a few weeks off with your driver, or even just a few rounds,” Geoff advises in the video above.

As Geoff explained to us, the shorter shaft and added loft of a fairway metal creates a tighter pattern of dispersion than a driver.  So the misses are better.  Another added benefit of this little break… you’ll be on your way to dialing-in another go-to shot from the tee.

Give this a try and here's to finding more fairways!
