This week the Titleist Tour Van is on site at the Valero Texas open in San Antonio, which afforded us an opportunity to invite two avid Titleist Players Staff members on-board for an up-close look at the latest equipment offerings and fitting techniques employed by the magicians on the Titleist Tour Van staff.  Ryan Crysler and Spencer Reynolds are both certified club fitters at Austin Golf Club and are each passionate teachers of the game. They have co-created MyGolfPerformance.com, a network of websites through which serious players can work with Ryan and Spencer to refine their games from "tee to green, driver to putter and fitness in between".  They are also the co-hosts of "Inside the Studio", a show in which Ryan and Spencer preview the latest in golf equipment, interview industry leaders and explore the latest trends in golf technology, fitting and instruction.  For these two golf equipment "gear-heads", a trip to the Titleist Tour Van was like a visit for two kids to Santa's workshop.  Check out some photos from Ryan and Spencer's visit below.

Ryan is a Titleist Performance Institute-Certified Level III Golf Instructor and a Titleist Top 100 Club Fitter.  He has been personally influenced by several great teachers including Claude Harmon III, Butch Harmon, Dave Phillips, Greg Rose, Jim Hardy, Hank Haney, and Buck Mayers.  Ryan is inspired by the work of several TPI Advisory Staff members including Gray Cook, Ramsay McMaster, and Tom House and noted authors Tim Ferriss and Gary Vaynerchuk.  Ryan's philosophy is that golf is a sport and players should practice, train, and play in an athletic mindset.

Spencer is a dedicated Scotty Cameron enthusiast.  Through this hobby Spencer has gotten to know a tight-knit group of collectors that share in his passion and are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the Scotty Cameron world. Spencer’s primary goal is to outfit players with the best equipment to fit their game, especially in the area of putting. Spencer believes that the short game area is where a player truly shows his or her individuality and is one of the main areas of the game in which fundamentals are highly accompanied by feel.

Both Ryan and Spencer offer on-line instruction.  For more information, please visit http://www.playerstaff.com/

Hello,

I just got back from practice. Weather is hot and conditions are similar to last week. There's a chance of rain later in the week. I flew into San Antonio on Sunday night with Charley Hoffman. Unfortunately we left immediately after Charley's round so we didn't get to celebrate with Tim Clark! What a great round of golf for Tim....finished it with a clutch putt on 18. Nice to see him get his first US PGA TOUR win. Nobody deserves it more.

This is my first trip to San Antonio, it's actually fun being in a new city. I don't get a lot of time during a tournament week to see the sites but I do get to experience the local food in the evenings and I always enjoy that part. If you want good BBQ this is the place to come!

I've got an afternoon tee time for the pro-am tomorrow so I'll practice and a do a light work-out in the morning. I played well last week but still need to get a few more putts to drop. I'm confident it's only a matter of staying patient and continuing to work hard.

I wanted to let everyone know the PGA TOUR put together a new website PGATOUR.com/Together that is a good resource to learn what the TOUR and all the players are doing for charity. Check it out when you get time.

I'll write more next week. Until then you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

Take care.
-Adam

Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jay and Bill Haas are both competing in this week's PLAYERS Championship, becoming the first father/son duo to play the event in the same year.  Jay, a nine-time winner on the PGA Tour and 14-time winner on the Champions Tour, qualified for THE PLAYERS via his victory at the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship last year. This will be his 29th appearance in THE PLAYERS (a record), with his best finish a T-2 in 2003. Bill, who picked up his first PGA Tour victory earlier this season at the Bob Hope Classic, will be making his fourth start in THE PLAYERS.

The father and son played practice rounds together earlier in the week and touched on a number of topics in a joint press conference on Tuesday.  Jay will open his championship first on Thursday at 12:25pm (ET) from hole 10, with Bill following on the tenth tee at 1:28pm.


Bill and Jay Haas are the first father and son to compete in the same PLAYERS Championship.
