Summer's officially here (as of June 21, 1:16 p.m. EDT), golf season is hitting its peak, and we're pumped to be sending Team Titleist to several professional events around the Northeast this weekend to celebrate.
On the LPGA, a major championship is up for grabs at the Wegmans LPGA Championship.
Team Titleist members Dan O., Jeff C., Doug B., William B., Carl B. won tickets to the LPGA's second major through Team Titleist and will be on hand at at Locust Hill Country Club outside Rochester, N.Y. to watch the world's best take their shots at history.
"I like this course. I've played well here the last couple of years, too," said Pro V1x loyalist Stacy Lewis, winner of the season's first major championship, the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
"Off the tee, you actually have to hit some shots left-to-right a little bit of a fade. That sets up really well for me. This course is just all about fairways and greens. The simpler you keep it, the less you are in the rough. That's what's going to end up winning the golf tournament."
TV coverage of the Wegmans LPGA Championship on Golf Channel is as follows (all times ET):
• Thursday, June 23: 12:30-2:30 p.m.

A stellar PGA Tour field is in New England this week for the Travelers Championship.
Team Titleist members Craig B., Chip B. and Chris W. won tickets to the Travelers Championship, through Team Titleist and will be outside the ropes at TPC River Highlands outside Hartford, Conn., to watch Pro V1x loyalist Bubba Watson try to successfully defend his 2010 title.
"I just have to stay focused on what the job is, you know, the job of trying to lift another trophy, hopefully raise some good charity dollars for the tournament and the city, local area here," said Watson, who earned his first-career PGA Tour victory at last year's event and has won two more times since.
"You know, that's the main goal of the tournament and the sponsor Travelers. So that's the ultimate goal, but yeah, I'd love to hold that trophy or put on that jacket again like I did last year."
