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.

As the major season culminates this week at Valhalla Golf Club, the focus level and determination of the field will be amplified as players look to claim the Wanamaker Trophy and have their name etched in history as a Major Champion.

The PGA Championship is always a special tournament that historically features some of the more exciting finishes, so we caught up with Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jason DufnerAdam Scott, Zach Johnson, Webb Simpson, Jordan Spieth and Jimmy Walker along with golf ball loyalists Henrik Stenson, Billy Horschel, Lee Westwood, Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan, Louis Oosthuizen and Rickie Fowler to get their perspective on this unique challenge.

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.

So let's take a look inside the bag at the Titleist equipment Geoff trusted en route to his victory this weekend...

What's in Geoff's Bag?

Golf Ball: Pro V1x
Driver: Titleist 915 Prototype Driver (9.5) With Aldila Rogue 70 (X) shaft, and SureFit Tour Hosel Setting A•1 
Fairway Wood: Titleist 913 FD (15º)  
Irons: 714 CB (2 iron) 714 MB (3-9)
Wedges: Vokey Design Spin Milled SM5 48, 54, 60

Congratulations, Geoff!

An international field has assembled in Akron, Ohio this week for the WGC Invitational at Firestone CC. Featuring 76 of the best golfers in the world from 22 different countries, the field will be tested by the difficult 7,343-yard South Course as players look to claim the prestigious title and build momentum leading into next week's PGA Championship.

 With one of the largest purses of the season and bonus FedEx Cup points at stake, it's no surprise that 42 players in the limited field will trust a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success.

That’s more than four times the nearest competitor with 9 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the hybrids (12), irons (23) and sand, lob and approach wedge (63) categories. Titleist also shared the top spot in the driver category with 21 drivers in play.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!

Like most of us, Josh G. is serious about his game, absolutely loves his putter  and has been fortunate enough to make the ever elusive Albatross.

Josh is just one of the many passionate, energetic and interesting golfers we have here at Team Titleist.

So, let’s get to know Josh in our latest Team Titleist member spotlight.

Team Titleist (TT): How did you get started in golf? Who introduced you to the game?

Josh G. (JG): I have to credit my grandparents for fostering my golfing addiction. We lived with them when I was little, and in the yard my Pop and I used to chip balls into a fishing net.  Eventually I started to hit them far enough to be dangerous. Good thing they lived near a course. When he'd get home from work I'd have our clubs ready and my pop would take me out after the last group went by. We mess around on one hole that had a little creek circling the green, which eventually fed into a pond behind the dance floor. I was obsessed with hitting high lobs over that pond.

Hitting a quality tee shot and getting the ball in play is imperative to shooting low scores. And knowing how to minimize your misses off the tee and steering clear of trouble can help keep those good rounds going.

In the latest edition of Titleist Tips from the Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador John Peterson provides a few thoughts about how to help players who have a tendency to hook the ball can gain some more control with their drives. 

Check out the video to see John walk us through how teeing the ball lower and focusing on holding your wrist angle can help golfers hit a controlled fade and find more fairways.
