As you read this, several dozens of long, cardboard boxes, imprinted with the Titleist Script, sit in the back of a delivery truck en route to Arnonimink Golf Club just outside Philadelphia, host of next week's AT&T National PGA Tour event. They were all shipped from the same place, the Titleist Tour Deparment in Carlsbad, Calif.On Monday morning, our Titleist Tour Reps at Aronimink will begin opening those boxes, each one marked with the name of a player in this week's AT&T field.
Inside the boxes: Prototype Titleist AP1, AP2, CB and MB irons (712 Series), which are being introduced on the PGA Tour this week for testing and seeding as part of our performance validation process.
(Please note: "712" is the series designation. Titleist has long used 700 numbers for irons, just as we use 900 numbers for metals. Accordingly, the "7" stands for irons, while the "12" stands for the new model year, 2012.)Over the last few weeks, the Titleist Tour Department has been focused on building these iron sets to the custom specifications of our Titleist Brand Ambassadors.This week at AT&T, members of the Titleist Leadership and R&D teams will begin working with our players to show, explain, fit and test the new irons, a process that will continue over the coming weeks across the worldwide professional tours. The feedback we receive during this validation process influences the design and specifications of the Titleist products available in golf shops around the world. We will continue to provide behind-the-scenes information and product details here on the Team Titleist blog throughout the seeding and performance validation process.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Bud Cauley's first shot as a professional? Almost unfair.Bud made his pro debut last week at the U.S. Open at Congressional after shooting rounds of 67-65 in a sectional qualifier in Mississippi.A three-time All-American at Alabama and a member of the victorious 2009 U.S. Walker Cup team, Bud had experienced his fair share of pressure situations on the golf course. But nothing like this.Bud's group drew a Round 1 tee time starting off Congressional's infamous 10th hole, a downhill 218-yard par-3 surrounded by water, bunkers and thousands and thousands of spectators.He chose 5-iron, then took a deep breath.Bud sent his Titleist Pro V1x golf ball sailing over the drink to 25 feet, then two-putted for one of the more memorable pars of his career. He went on to shoot an opening-round even-par 71 and make the cut in his first major championship (T-63).Team Titleist caught up with Bud on Monday at Travelers Championship, where he is playing this week on a sponsor's exemption, to talk about his U.S. Open experience, his college and amateur golf days, the start of his pro career, and why he plays a Pro V1x golf ball.(Fun fact: At the 2009 Walker Cup – amateur golf's version of the Ryder Cup – Bud teamed with Titleist Brand Ambassador Rickie Fowler to go 2-0 in their to foursomes matches.)
