Team Titleist Members Tour Titleist Ball Plant, Test 910 Prototype Drivers

Posted: September 16, 2010

Ten loyal Team Titleist members stood in the lobby of Titleist Ball Plant 3 earlier this month wearing Titleist hats and eager grins, unsure of their schedule for the day, but certain it was going to be a great one.

A couple weeks earlier, e-mails notifying them of their invitation to an "Exclusive Team Titleist Member Event" hit their in-boxes. A few of the members said "it sounded too good to be true."



It turned out to be "unbelievable," according to Team Titleist Member Kevin Yalmokas.

"It was superb. Unbelievable," he said. "It was an unbelievable day."



The experience started with a behind-the-scenes tour of Titleist Golf Ball Plant 3 in New Bedford, Mass., where the Titleist Pro V1, Pro V1x and NXT Tour golf balls are produced. The tour of of the facility, which is not offered to the general public, featured a step-by-step view into the making of the #1 ball in golf and showcased the technological advances that Titleist has made in golf ball design and development.

"It's incredible how they put all that technology into it and then you see the finished the product," said Team Titleist member Don Daniels. "It's just, wow."


From there, the Team Titleist members hopped on a shuttle to Titleist's Manchester Lane Test Facility, where Titleist conducts golf ball research, development and testing. After touring the facility (which included a look at the robotic golf ball hitting machine in action), the members went through a Titleist Performance Golf Ball Fitting at Manchester Lane's short game area and participated in a closest-to-the-pin competition for some unique Titleist prizes including a custom "Team Titleist" stamped WedgeWorks Exclusives wedge.



The final couple of hours were spent on Manchester Lane's driving range, where each member was able to test the new Titleist 910 prototype drivers, which are currently only available to professional golfers on the worldwide tours as part of Titleist's performance-validation process.

Check out the video and slideshow below for an inside look at the entire day.

Looks like this was an awesome, once in a life time experience. I'm sure the individuals that got the opportunity to attend created some life long memories. Probably felt like a little kid waking up on Christmas morning. I know thats how I would feel. Just further proves that Titleistt is number 1.
