One of the major highlights of 2013 was certainly the dramatic win by Stacy Lewis at The Old Course at St. Andrew's where she triumphed to take home the Women's British Open.
Let's take another look at the Team Titleist recap from August 5th and hear from Stacy on what it meant to claim her second career major...

But that is exactly what Pro V1x loyalist Stacy Lewis did this weekend as she captured the Ricoh Women’s British Open title in dramatic fashion.Stacy’s win capped off a weekend that featured a total of four wins for Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players across the worldwide professional tours. Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball loyalists have now won 88 tournaments on the worldwide professional tours in 2013, more than three times the nearest competitor with 28 and more than all other competitors combined.
Joining Stacy in the winner’s circle this week, Titleist Brand Ambassador Tom Pernice, Jr. birdied the final two holes to capture the 3M Championship for his second Champions Tour title. On the Web.com Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Ben Martin closed with a 4-under par 67 to win the Mylan Classic by five shots, earning his second win (United Leasing Championship) in six weeks. And at the Bosung C.C. Open, Titleist Brand Ambassador Tae Hoon Kim achieved his dream of a first career win on the KPGA Tour, finishing at 21-under 267 for a three shot victory.For a quick recap of all the action, check out the Team Titleist notes from around the tours below.

Next up in the Team Titleist Year in Review, we check back in with the Vokey WedgeWorks Team to revisit the introduction of the new Hand Ground Wedges.
Earlier this year, Master Craftsman Bob Vokey opened the doors to the Vokey Tour Department at Titleist and provided all of Vokey Nation with an opportunity to have their own hand-ground wedge personally built by “The Voke” or one of his craftsmen.
Check out the post below for the complete recap and for some bonus content, here's a link to a Q&A with The Voke: 11 Questions with Master Craftsman Bob Vokey: Bounce, Grinds and Wedge Fitting

Imagine having access to the same team that works with players like Adam Scott, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Steve Stricker and Jason Dufner (to name a few) to get their wedges precisely fit to match their technique and style, not to mention personality.Well, here’s the exciting news… Master Craftsman Bob Vokey is opening the doors to the Vokey Tour Department at Titleist and providing all of Vokey Nation with an opportunity to have your own hand-ground wedge personally built by “The Voke” or one of his craftsmen.“I’m excited to make this Tour-level experience available to the Vokey wedge enthusiast,” said Vokey.“I’m bringing everything I’ve learned over the years working with the best players in the world to this project. Many of the little tweaks I like to do on the Tour Van are now available. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”WedgeWorks Hand Ground wedges are offered in 58º and 60º lofts, and four of Vokey's favorite high-performance sole grinds – M, V, E and T. The V, E, and T are models available only through the Hand Ground program. All Hand Ground wedges have a raw finish, previously available only to Tour players, along with Tour-proven, precision-milled SM4 grooves.Many aspects of the wedge’s shape, sole and leading edge will be customizable, relative to the player's desired performance preferences. Golfers can choose from the many grind options that Voke has perfected over the years, including square toe, straighter or pre-worn leading edge, additional heel relief, thinner or beveled top line and a pro-groove sole.So how will this all work?After receiving an order, Bob or one his craftsmen – such as Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill – will hand grind, polish and buff each wedge, before finishing it off with personalized stamping and a hand-stamped hosel code. The grinder’s initials will be stamped on the hosel of each wedge, a small “BV” marking those wedges hand ground by the man himself.The doors officially open to the Vokey Tour Department on June 19th and orders for WedgeWorks Hand Ground wedges can be submitted through Vokey.comEach wedge will have an MSRP of $350 and are all inclusive of shafts, grips and customization options. Expected turn around time will be two to three weeks.Check out the slideshow above for a tour of WedgeWorks Hand Ground and see some of the new options up-close.And don’t forget to join Vokey Nation at Vokey.com.

Our PGA Tour Leadership Team logs a lot of miles during the course of the year traveling from one event to another. As zip codes change with the scenary, one thing remains constant from stop-to-stop... the Titleist Tour Support Van.
Earlier this year the team welcomed a new home away from home and Team Titleist was on hand for one of the first looks inside the new setup at the BMW Championship.
Check out the original slideshow and post below as we continue our 2013 Year in Review.
Slideshow: First Look Inside the New Titleist Tour Van

CLICK IMAGE TO LAUNCH SLIDESHOWThe Titleist Tour Leadership Team on the PGA Tour has a new home away from home as the new Titleist Tour Van is making its debut this week at the BMW Championship.
Now, to call it a "van" would be a little bit of an understatement, as the new 18-wheeler is 42 feet long, 8 feet 6 inches wide, and weighs 36 tons when fully loaded. It features four "pop-outs" that extend the width to 15 feet 6 inches for a total of 650 square feet of working space, nearly 30 percent more than the previous trailer.
Dave Southworth, Titleist's Senior Technical Representative for PGA Tour, was responsible for designing the new trailer and accommodating the needs of the 10-person Tour Leadership Team that services up to 40 full product line players a week, in addition to others who rely upon Titleist 913 metals, MB, CB and AP irons, Vokey Design wedges and Scotty Cameron putters. And during an average week on tour, there are more than 100 Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball players to service, which keeps the Titleist Tour Van buzzing with activity from arrival time on Sunday through its Wednesday afternoon departure.
"It is not very often you get to design a Tour Van from scratch, so you want to make sure you get it right," said Southworth. Based upon the response of the Titleist Tour Leadership Team, as well as players, caddies and other tour support teams who have paid a visit so far, he seems to have accomplished his goal.
"This 'van' is basically our workplace and home for half the week for the next six or so years," said Southworth. "With that in mind, I took everybody's requests and suggestions into serious consideration and implemented them as best I could. I wanted it to be as efficient and comfortable as possible, primarily for our own tech reps that are building clubs everyday, but also for the players, caddies, managers, network associates and tournament officials that use it as a meeting place or to just hang out at some point during the week."
The word Southworth heard most often for the workplace area from his fellow tech reps was "maneuverability," that is, more space to hone their craft, which includes but is not limited to: replacing shafts, grinding and stamping clubs, changing grips, measuring lofts and lies, and just building clubs from scratch. There is also a separate workspace for the Vokey Design wedge team within the trailer.
The challenge was to accommodate those needs while still securing enough room to stock an inventory of shafts, clubheads, grips, tools, headwear, headcovers and umbrellas. There is also a separate computer station and wi-fi, a satellite dish, three television monitors, a couch, stools and table for meetings, and an ice chest and cabinetry for cold drinks and healthy snacks.
This marks the third and most technologically advanced Titleist Tour Van since the original debuted in 2002. That 32-foot van was replaced late in 2006 by a 34-foot version which appeared at virtually every PGA Tour event (with the exception of Hawaii) over the past seven years, totaling nearly 130,000 miles crisscrossing the country. It will continue to be used to service the equipment needs of players on the Web.com Tour, making its first appearance at last week's Chiquita Classic.
"This is really a win-win for our Tour Leadership team," said Southworth. "We have a state-of-the-art trailer that will help our team service our growing list of full product line players more efficiently, and the Web.com Team will be able to do the same now that they have a full service van."

Next up for the Team Titleist year in review, we say hello to the Web.com Class of 2014.
Here is our post from earlier in the year that shines the spotlight on the 30 players who trusted Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf balls on their journey to the PGA Tour. Congrats, guys!

In 2013, for the first time ever, 50 PGA Tour cards were made available through the Web.Com Tour – 25 for the Top 25 on the money list during the regular season, and another 25 for the top performing players (without a regular season promotion) during the Web.Com Tour Finals.
Amid all the changes, at least one thing remained constant: More players in pursuit of their PGA Tour status put their trust in Titleist when it mattered most. Among the 50 qualifiers for the 2014 PGA Tour schedule, 30 players relied on a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x for their success, five times the nearest competitor with six and more than all other competitors combined. Additionally, 14 players chose Titleist throughout their bag.
Before the Web.Com Finals began, Titleist Brand Ambassador Chesson Hadley had already qualified for a promotion with his third place finish on the regular season money list. That didn't deter Chesson from winning the Web.Com Tour Championship by two shots. Another regular season Top 25 finisher, Titleist Brand Ambassador John Peterson caught post-season fire down the stretch to earn the No. 1 spot on the Finals money list.
Also in the finale, Pro V1x loyalist Lee Williams saved one of the most memorable shots for the final hole of the season. With a promotion on the line, Lee poured in a birdie putt from over forty feet on the 72nd hole Sunday to earn his card. For a complete recap of the Web.Com Tour Championship, click here.
Congratulations to the class of 2013 - 2014! Good luck on the PGA Tour this season.

No need to worry, we’ve enlisted Titleist Brand Ambassador George Coetzee to help us turn those 4-footers into tap-ins. And as you will see in the video, George shares a favorite drill that he uses to reinforce success.
“Repetition is a big key for me,” George explained to us as he placed tees in the green on four points of the compass. “At each point, if you can make forty or fifty putts in a row, then you build your confidence and you learn to repeat a quite simple stroke.”
Watch the video above to hear what else George has to say and give this drill a try the next time you're out on the practice green.
