Titleist Brand Ambassador Ben Crane trusted his Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist clubs to capture the 5th PGA Tour title of his career, winning wire-to-wire at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Crane, who shot an opening round of 7-under 63 at TPC Southwind, posted a 10-under-par 270 victory total, one shot clear of Pro V1 loyalist Troy Merritt.

On the European Tour, Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Mikael Lundberg holed a 40-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole at the Lyoness Open to top Titleist Brand Ambassador Bernd Wiesberger. The pair finished regulation tied at 12-under-par 276 after Lundberg vaulted up the leaderboard with a closing 7-under 65. With the runner-up performance, Wiesberger moved inside the top-60 in the official world golf rankings and earned a spot in this week's U.S. Open.

In Thailand, Pro V1x loyalist Thaworn Wirathchant closed with a 5-under-par 66 to win the Queen's Cup by one shot over Asian Tour rookie and Titleist Brand Ambassador Poom Saksansin. Wirathchant posted a 12-under 272 total in claiming his 17th career crown on the Asian Tour.

On the Champions Tour, Pro V1 loyalist Jeff Sluman was part of the team that captured top honors at the Big Cedar Lodge Legends of Golf.

In Japan, the winner of the PGA Championship Nissin Cupnoodles Cup trusted a Pro V1 golf ball en route to victory.

And on the PGA Tour China, Titleist golf ball players claimed the top three spots on the leaderboard as Pro V1x loyalist David McKenzie captured his first career China series title. McKenzie closed with a 3-under-par 69 en route to a 16-under-par 272 total, five shots clear of fellow Australian and Pro V1x loyalist Steve Dartnall. Quincy Quek also trusted a Pro V1x golf ball to finish in solo third, another three shots back, as nine of the 14 players who finished among the top-10 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.

With six more wins this week, Titleist’s year-to-date victory count advances to 76. That's more than four times the nearest competitor with 18 and more than all competitors combined.

In total, 10,801 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in competition on the 2014 worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 1,754 and more than all competitors combined.

It’s become an annual tradition here at Team Titleist. In the week just before the U.S. Open, we can always count on a big assist from our friend and loyal Team Titleist member, Scott M. (you may know him better on the Team Titleist discussion boards as "memphisunited”).

Scott, a Memphis native, makes it a point to attend the FedEx St. Jude Classic each year and he always manages to take some amazing photographs while he follows the early-week action. This year was no different and Scott was kind enough to send along a great collection of photos to share with all of Team Titleist.

Check out the slideshow above for some great bonus coverage of Titleist Brand Ambassadors and Titleist golf ball loyalists as they prepared to challenge TPC Southwind.

Thanks again for sharing the photos, Scott!

The second major of the PGA Tour season is less than a week away, but this week in Memphis, the first order of business is the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Benefitting the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the tournament has boasted an impressive list of winners in its 58-year history. The challenging 7,249-yard, par-70 layout at TPC Southwind will test every shot and offers an ideal venue for players seeking a U.S. Open tune-up under tournament conditions and pressure.

 And this week, 96 players in the field of 156 will trust a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success - more than five times the nearest competitor with 19 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice of players in the approach, sand and lob wedge (143) and putter (55) categories.

Team Titleist was on-site early in the week to capture all of the sights and sounds from around the course and on the practice grounds, so check out the slideshow above for a tour inside the ropes.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!

Titleist Brand Ambassador Tom Pernice birdied the second hole of an all-Pro V1x playoff with Doug Garwood to win the Champions Tour's Principal Charity Classic. Pernice closed with a 3-under 69 that included a dramatic 30-foot chip-in on the 17th hole that helped him seize the clubhouse lead at 12-under 204. Garwood birdied the final two holes of regulation to force the playoff that would ultimately end with Pernice's 8-foot birdie putt.

Pernice’s win marks the seventh for Titleist golf ball loyalists through the first 10 events on the 2014 Champions Tour, seven times the nearest competitor with 1.
