We're looking forward to another great weekend for golf watching, jam-packed with birdies and brackets, and we'll also be keeping an eye on the galleries at this week's PGA Tour and LPGA events for the many Team Titleist members in attendance.
Team Titleist members Matthew T. and Tony G. won tickets to this week's PGA Tour's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial through Team Titleist and will be hanging outside the ropes in in Fort Worth, Texas, as Titleist Brand Ambassador Zach Johnson looks to make it two-in-a-row at Hogan's Alley.
Last year, Johnson didn't post a score worse than 66 at Colonial Country Club, shooting consecutive 6-under 64s on the weekend to earn his seventh PGA Tour victory by three shots as well as the champion's Tartan blazer.
His 21-under 259 total was a tournament record.
“This tournament is always high on my list of wanting to win. It always has been. It still is," said Johnson, whose name now appears along with Ben Hogan's on Colonial's Wall of Champions.
"Just because I won it once doesn’t mean I don’t want to win it again. I’ve become partial to that plaid."
TV coverage of the tournament is as follows (all times EST):
• Thursday, May 19: 3-6 p.m. (Golf Channel)
• Friday, May 20: 3-6 p.m. (Golf Channel)
• Saturday, May 21: 3-6 p.m. (NBC)
• Sunday, May 22: 3-6 p.m. (NBC)

The LPGA's best have gathered at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, N.J., for an exciting weekend of head-to-head action at the Sybase Match Play Championship.
Team Titleist members Dennis O., Ryan F., Ian D., Ryan M. and Glen F. won tickets to this event through Team Titleist and will be on hand to see who will emerge from the 64-player bracket.
"I love match play because you can be aggressive all the time and just play one hole like very focused," said Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng. "It's not like you're trying to beat the whole field, you just try to beat the person you play with.
"It's going to be a very fun week this week and I'm really looking forward to it."
TV coverage of the tournament on Golf Channel is as follows (all times EST):
