Titleist Ambassador Arron Oberholser hit 14 of 14 fairways on Friday at the Frys.com Open.
After two wrist surgeries and a three month layoff, Titleist Brand Ambassador Arron Oberholser
is back in action on the PGA Tour. He posted rounds of 65-64 for an 11-under total and is headed into the weekend the leader by one at the Frys.com Open in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Arron talked about his injury and all that it has taken to get him back on Tour and back atop the leaderboard. He had his first surgery last October, and when it became apparent that didn’t solve his problem he had another one this past July 22. That second surgery, which removed bone spurs and repaired some minor cartilage damage in his left hand, was so successful Arron was putting inside of two weeks and chipping less than a month afterward. Today, a scant three months later, Oberholser is in the driver’s seat at Grayhawk and commented that during the round he had "no problems, zero. Everything was good."
It was good indeed. Oberholser followed up his bogey-free Round 1 by hitting every fairway in Round 2 and is in the top 10 in both driving accuracy (T7) and greens in regulation (T4). Arron has amassed two rounds of impressive ball striking with a full compliment of Titleist equipment. In addition to the Pro V1x
golf ball, Oberholser’s bag includes the new Titleist 909D2
driver (9.5°), 909F2
3-wood (13.5°), and 909H
hybrid (19°), as well as 755
irons (3-P), a Vokey Design
Spin Milled sand wedge (54), and Spin Milled lob wedge (60) and a Scotty Cameron
