The PGA Tour headed up the coast of South Carolina and pulled into Hilton Head for this week’s RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Known for its narrow, tree-lined fairways and small greens, the par-71, 6,973-yard Pete Dye layout puts a premium on precision shot-making ability. And if a player wants to slip into the winner’s traditional tartan jacket, he’ll need complete control of his golf ball.

 This week 77 players in the field of 132 will trust a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success - more than four times the nearest competitor with 18 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice of players in the sand, lob, gap and approach wedge category with 121.

Team Titleist was on-site early in the week to capture all of the sights and sounds as players sharpened their games.  So click on the slideshow above and join us for an inside-the-ropes tour of the RBC Heritage.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!

When you see the towering red and white striped lighthouse and the signature plaid jacket… you know you’re at Harbour Town Golf Links for the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage.

And while the destinations change from week-to-week, the Scotty Cameron team is always on the practice green to share some expert advice and showcase the latest lineup.

Check out the slideshow above for a closer look at some of the early-week action on the greens.

You may have heard some whispers about a new and exciting Scotty Cameron experience that is opening its doors in Encinitas, CA in the very near future…

Well, we’re excited to share a little sneak peek behind the curtain of the new Scotty Cameron Gallery with all of Team Titleist.

Scotty and his team have been working to conceptualize, design and create a new destination where golfers will be able to enjoy the Tour treatment and get their Scotty Cameron putter fit like a pro.

The Scotty Cameron Gallery is located a few minutes away from Scotty’s Putter Studio and features the world’s premiere putter fitting experience focused on the art – and science – of putting.

In addition to getting expertly fit for a Scotty Cameron putter, you’ll be able to buy one-of-a-kind Scotty Cameron putters, hand-crafted metalwork, apparel and more in this unique, boutique-like space.

Sounds pretty amazing to us.

So check out the video above and click here if you’re interested in booking a fitting.

 

Uneven lies are commonplace on the golf course and you’ll come across your fair share in any given round – even if you’re splitting the fairways. And having the right approach and technique for these shots is essential to finding more greens in regulation.

So we enlisted Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan to share some advice on what to do when you're facing a sidehill lie with the ball several inches above your feet. As Hunter told us, the biggest key to hitting this shot is good balance.

"You don't want to fall off the slope; the slope is pushing you back towards your heels. You want to make sure you get to your finish and really get your weight on the balls of your feet or even the toes."

Watch the video above to see what else Hunter has to say and turn this shot into a green-light special.

#TeamTitleist

 Demonstrating unshakable trust in himself and his golf ball, Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Bubba Watson earned a place in golf history this weekend, becoming just the 17th player to win The Masters more than once. Watson validated his 2012 Masters victory with a commanding tee-to-green performance that resulted in a three-shot win and a victory stroll on the 18th at Augusta National that he was able to savor.

Watson’s second green jacket highlighted a three-win week on the worldwide professional golf tours for Titleist golf ball players.

On the Web.com Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Carlos Ortiz achieved his own momentous follow-up, validating his maiden win three weeks ago by capturing the El Bosque Mexico Championship.

And on the South African Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador Jbe Kruger trusted his Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist clubs to enter the winners circle at the Zimbabwe Open.


TITLEIST LEADERBOARD...

Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players have now won 41 tournaments on the worldwide professional tours in 2014, more than five times the nearest competitor with 7 and more than all other competitors combined.

 To date, 5,587 players have trusted a Titleist golf ball across the worldwide professional tours in 2014, more than six times the nearest competitor with 855 and more than all other competitors combined.


TEAM TITLEIST WEEKEND RECAP...

PGA TOUR: The Masters

Titleist was once again #1 ball at the Masters with more players placing their trust in a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball than all other competitors combined.

Watson, who shared the overnight lead with Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth (Pro V1x, 910D2 driver, 913Hd hybrid, AP2 irons (714 series), Vokey Design SM5 pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron 009 putter), shot a final round 3-under 69 for a total of 8-under 280. Watson trailed Spieth by two shots coming to the eighth hole at Augusta National, but he birdied both the eighth and the ninth to take the lead and command of the tournament for good.

“Holes 8 and 9 were the key,” Watson said following the win. “Momentum went my way. There weren’t too many birdies after No. 10.”

Spieth, playing in his first Masters, shot an even-par 72 on Sunday to finish at 5-under 283, sharing runner-up honors with fellow Masters rookie and Pro V1x loyalist Jonas Blixt.

Blixt shot 1-under 71 in the final round, becoming just the second player in history to shoot four consecutive rounds under par (70-71-71-71) in his first Masters Tournament, and the first since 1979.

Blixt and Spieth were just the fifth and sixth first-time participants to shoot under par for their first three rounds.

Pro V1x loyalists Rickie Fowler finished T5 for his best career Masters finish, while Lee Westwood took solo solo 7th. Titleist Brand Ambassador Jimmy Walker (Pro Vx, 913D2 driver, 913Fd fairway metals, MB irons (714 series), Vokey Design pitching, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Tour Rat putter) also posted a top-10 finish in his Masters debut. Walker shot 2-under 70 in the final round to finish at even-par 288, tied for 8th place with five players including Pro V1 loyalists Bernhard Langer and John Senden.

Bubba Watson ranked first in driving distance at the 2014 Masters, averaging nearly 306 yards off the tee. He found the fairway on 71 percent of his drives. Watson also tied for 5th in GIR, hitting 69 percent of Augusta's greens in regulation. Jordan Spieth led the GIR category, hitting 74 percent for the tournament.

“We always thought I had the talent,” Watson said among his closing remarks on Sunday. “We thought I had the ability to play golf at a high level. But doing it is another thing.”

WEB.COM TOUR: El Bosque Mexico Championship

 Titleist was the top golf ball choice at the El Bosque Mexico Championship with 94 players in the field of 144 trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, over five times the nearest competitor with 18.

Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Carlos Ortiz won the El Bosque Mexico Championship for his second victory on the young 2014 Web.com Tour season.

The 22-year-old, who captured the Panama Claro Championship last month, closed with a 4-under 68 en route to a two-shot victory over Titleist Brand Ambassador Justin Thomas (Pro V1x, 910D3 driver, 913Fd fairway metal, 913H hybrid, MB 714 irons, Vokey Design SM5 gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Fastback Plus putter).

Ortiz posted a 13-under 275 victory total and advanced from second to the top of the 2014 Web.com money list, already earning well over the amount needed to earn a PGA Tour card next season as a top-25 finisher. The native of Guadalajara, Mexico would earn an immediate PGA Tour promotion with another victory.

"It's an honor to win here in Mexico,” Ortiz said of winning in his home country. “It makes everyone so happy around here. I don't have the words, it just feels great. I just stay patient, trust my game plan, and just let it flow. I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing and see if I can get that third win."

SOUTH AFRICAN TOUR: Zimbabwe Open

 Titleist was the top golf ball choice at the Zimbabwe Open with 115 players in the field of 156 trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, nearly four times the nearest competitor with 31.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Jbe Kruger (Pro V1x, 913D3 driver, AP2 714 irons, Vokey Design SM5 wedges) posted a one shot, wire-to-wire victory at the Zimbabwe Open to register his third career Sunshine Tour title.

Kruger started the final round five shots behind the overnight leader and closed with a 6-under par 66 en route to an 18-under par 270 victory total.

Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Haydn Porteous claimed solo third place, two shots behind Kruger, while Titleist Brand Ambassador Jean Hugo (Pro V1x) finished solo fifth place, four shots back.
