Since you're here, you probably have noticed that Team Titleist has taken on a bit of a different look, as well as some new-and-improved features. We have been listening to your feedback and working hard on various enhancements to the site, committed to continually improving your Team Titleist experience.
The site's refreshed design will make it easier for you to browse all of the great discussions, tips and insight that are contributed by Team Titleist members on a daily basis. We’ve also streamlined the navigation to create a more user-friendly site.
A few months ago, we asked Team Titleist which features you'd like us to add to the site. The most popular request was for an area to post scores and keep track of statistics.We got to work immediately.
Which brings us to today: We are really excited to introduce the all new My Game experience to Team Titleist...
The My Game experience (which you can always access via the left hand navigation bar) features tools that will allow you to track your scores and key golf stats along with a library of video tips, drills and fixes from some of the best players and teaching professionals in the game of golf.
Just like all of you, the people behind the scenes here at Team Titleist are also avid golfers who are passionate about their games and always looking to shoot lower scores.
We hope the My Game experience will help you improve your game and we look forward to hearing your stories throughout the season.
Let us know what you think of the updates and thanks for being a dedicated member of Team Titleist.

A pair of loyal Team Titleist members got to experience life (and, of course, golf) inside the ropes last month at the inaugural RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup.A couple weeks before the event, Team Titleist members Neil Hicks and Michael Young received e-mails notifying them of their selection to play in the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup's Thursday Pro-Am at Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa and attend the tournament's pairings party that same night – courtesy of Team Titleist and the LPGA.Neil would later describe it as "an experience of a lifetime," from the conditions to the coaching to the camaraderie.The results weren't bad either: With some help from Pro V1 loyalist Grace Park, Neil and Michael's team shot 12-under 60 (29-31) and finished in third place.You can check out some pictures from the day in the slideshow at the bottom of the page. Neil also passed along the following note to Team Titleist about the experience:
Thank you so much – it was a great time!
It was so much fun playing with fellow Team Titleist member Michael Young – we played great and actually became pretty close by the end of the round. We have a round set up together real soon!
Grace was so much fun to play with. She gave pointers, shared laughs and just had a great time.
The caddies were hilarious, helping us with yardages and giving us some angles and lines just like they would for their pros in competition. That made the experience so much fun as well.These girls are good!
I have played competitive golf for many years, and to see the lines that the pros and their caddies see was unbelievable. Maybe it's because they do it on a daily basis - but it is truly a gift, something that I would love to chase!
Luckily enough Michael's parents followed us all day long with an excellent camera and took pictures! It was a great addition to the day.
Wednesday night the pairings party was fun. Arrived at the resort, and checked in. The gifts that we received for participating in the event were amazing. Fresh pair of FootJoys! Some wine glasses, new shirt, towel, etc. Overall the pairings party was a great experience to interact with the golfers off the course and just have a great time.
The overall experience was amazing! It was so much fun being on the inside of the ropes playing just like the PGA and LPGA tour players. Treated like royalty! Food, drinks, all kinds of goodies.
I have been to numerous PGA and LPGA tournaments over the years. It is amazing how well they prep the course for the tour players. Let me tell you firsthand that the fairways are PERFECT! The rough is truly ROUGH! And the greens roll so true it is crazy.
I wish that I could play on those conditions every day! I am envious of all tour players that get to play on those conditions day-in and day-out. Has always been a longtime dream of mine to play with the pros.
I could keep going on and on...
Thanks again to everyone at Team Titleist!

Now just days from the debut of the New Vokey Design 200 Series in the Vokey Wedgeworks lineup, Master Craftsman Bob Vokey sat down with Team Titleist to share some insight on the 200 Series and discuss the options that will be available through WedgeWorks beginning next week on www.vokey.com.Vokey Design 200 Series wedges, widely played on the worldwide professional tours, feature a classic head shape with a high toe peak and a soft trailing edge.The New Vokey Design 200 Series will feature Spin Milled Condition of Competition (C-C) grooves and the WedgeWorks Exclusives Bright Brushed Chrome finish. They will be available in both right- and left-hand models, and in a variety of loft and bounce combinations ranging from 46º to 60º degrees (in 2º increments).
You can learn more from "The Voke" about the 200 Series wedges in the following Q&A:
Team Titleist: Why is the Vokey Design 200 Series still so popular on Tour?Bob Vokey: It's just a classic, guys love the shape. It fits their eye. Guys like the small trailing edge ribbon in back, it keeps the club from getting stuck in the turf.
TT: Which players use the 200 Series?
BV: We have quite a few – Rickie Fowler, Steve Stricker, Gary Woodland, Geoff Ogilvy, Tim Clark, Bill Haas and several others. Many mix-and-match their wedges with 200 Series, Spin Milled C-C and Vokey Tour Grinds. TT: What's the main difference between the 200 Series and your popular Vokey Design C-C wedges? BV: We'll there are a lot of similarities actually because we based the Spin Milled series on the 200 Series. The shape of the heads are a bit different. The 200 Series has a higher toe peak and it's a bit taller from leading edge to the top-line. The sole profiles are a bit different as well as the loft/bounce configurations. For example, we're going to have a 46.06 in the 200 Series, which we don't have in the SM C-C series. Also we'll have a 52.12 and a 60.12, two high bounce options which should be popular. TT: What did you change on the WedgeWorks version of the 200 Series?
BV: Well, the big thing is the grooves. This version has Spin Milled C-C grooves. When we had the 200 Series a few years back we used cast grooves. We have the surface roughness and groove depth as close as possible to the USGA limit. We also tweaked the graphics on the back so that we could accommodate various toe engravings and stampings. I really like the new look – it's very clean.
• Classic Profile: Tour-inspired teardrop shape with a high toe and shallow heel. Taller leading edge-to-topline inspires confidence around the greens.• Trailing Edge Ribbon: Slight trailing edge relief reduces turf drag and allows for touch shots with face square or open. • Spin Milled C-C Grooves: Condition of Competition (C-C) conforming grooves produce a higher trajectory with medium spin. Approved for play in events adopting the new groove rule.• CNC Cut Grooves: The Spin Milled cutting tool pioneered by Titleist precisely cuts the groove edge radius and groove volume to the limits allowed by the Rules of Golf. • Machined Face Texture: Machined face texture with micro edges up to the USGA limit provides additional ball gripping power for better spin retention on full and partial shots.
