One dollar will make a big difference this Labor Day weekend, as golfers around the country participate in the fifth annual Patriot Golf Day.

Patriot Golf Day is the flagship fundraiser for the Folds of Honor Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides postsecondary educational scholarships for the children and spouses of military men and women disabled or killed while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

 This Labor Day weekend, Sept. 2-5, golfers across the country are asked to add an extra $1 to their green fees to help fund these scholarships.

Four years ago, Major Dan Rooney, a PGA Professional and F-16 pilot, founded the Folds of Honor Foundation, raising more than $1.1 million from more than 3,200 golf facilities on Labor Day 2007.

Last year, PGA Professionals and golf facilities helped raise over $3 million for this cause, bringing the total since 2007 to more than $8.9 million while providing scholarships to 1,800 military dependents.

Acushnet Company, through its Titleist and Pinnacle golf ball brands, is a proud supporter of the Folds of Honor Foundation.

With the summer in full swing in the Northeast, the Titleist East Coast Mobile Golf Ball Fitting Team is headed to Cape Cod. The team will be making a few stops along the Cape Cod National Seashore to help educate golfers on the path to lowering their scores by finding the best golf ball for their games.

The team won't be on the Cape's sandy beaches, but if you are in the area, stop by one of the events below and meet our Titleist Golf Ball Fitting Experts, learn more about Titleist's green-to-tee methodology and begin the fitting process to get fit for the best golf ball for your game.

Space is limited for each event (days and times are listed below) so reserve your spot by calling ahead. We hope to see you there!

One of the Nationwide Tour's most prestigious titles is on the line this week at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational and we're sending a bunch of Team Titleist members to catch all of the action.

 Team Titleist members David B., Bob B., Gerry N., John L. and Jim J. won tickets to the event through Team Titleist and will be outside the ropes at The Ohio State University's Scarlet Course as players compete for the tour's largest purse other than the season-ending Nationwide Tour Championship.

Each year, the event also extends several invitations to college golf's All-Americans. Two years ago, Titleist Brand Ambassador Rickie Fowler, playing as an amateur, lost in a playoff to Pro V1x loyalist Chris Riley.

Last year, Pro V1x loyalist D.J. Brigman took home the title, helping him eventually earn his 2011 PGA Tour Card.

TV coverage of the tournament on Golf Channel is as follows (all times ET):
• Thursday, July 22: 12:30-2:30 p.m.

• Friday, July 23: 12:30-2:30 p.m.

• Saturday, July 24: 6:30-9:30 p.m.
• Sunday, July 25: 7-9:30 p.m.

When Team Titleist first arrived at Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club for this week's RBC Canadian Open, two key stats immediately came to mind: Driving Accuracy and Greens in Regulation.

Shaugnessy G&CC's narrow fairways, small greens and thick, penalizing rough have players putting in a little extra practice time this week in Vancouver.

Hey, what else would you expect at a national championship?

Check out the sideshow below for pictures from Tuesday's practice round, and stay tuned for more pictures and updates from the RBC Canadian Open later in the week.

 

Team Titleist caught up with the Vokey Wedges Team at a recent PGA Tour stop to get a behind-the-scenes look at the type of work that goes on each week inside the Titleist Tour Van.

In the above video, Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill takes us through a step-by-step demonstration of how he applies a custom modified "M" grind to a Vokey Design Spin Milled 60º lob wedge (with some assistance from Dave Neville, Marketing Manager for Vokey Wedges).
