Check out one of the newest additions to the World Golf Hall of Fame: The Titleist Pro V1x golf ball that Jonathan Byrd used to make his playoff-winning hole-in-one during the 2010 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open in Las Vegas.

 The shot came on the fourth hole of a sudden-death playoff at TPC Summerlin's 203-yard par-3 17th. Jonathan teed up a Titleist Pro V1x #2 golf ball, which he marked with an orange dot above the number. (He's a Clemson alum.)

The ball sailed through the wind, straight at the flagstick, took three shorts hops and rolled into the cup.

"I'm flattered. I'm 33 and still in the beginning of my PGA Tour career in a sense, so for the Hall of Fame to call me for something is special," Jonathan said. "I was happy to donate my club and ball."

TPC Summerlin also embedded a plaque in the ground at the 17th tee to commemorate the feat.

Jonathan spoke with Team Titleist recently about his historic Vegas ace, which you can check out in the video at the top of this post.

Titleist Introduces New 712 MB and CB Irons

Updates the Classic Looks, Feel and Performance of Tour-Proven
Muscle Back and Cavity Back Blades.

Fairhaven, MA (September 29, 2011) - Staying true to its heritage of crafting high performance clubs for serious golfers, Titleist introduces new MB and CB forged irons (712 Series) featuring improved looks, feel and performance.  Both models build upon the tour-proven classic designs of their 710 series predecessors.  Brought to market in 2009, the 710 MB and CB irons confirmed Titleist as the leader in traditional forged iron design.  In fact, since their initial launch, the Titleist MB has been the most-played iron model on the PGA TOUR.  In combination with the CB, AP1 and AP2 models, Titleist irons have consistently been a leading choice of players across the worldwide professional tours.

“When we started formulating plans for the new MB and CB designs, we knew that the project would be a reinterpretation, not a complete reinvention,” said Steve Pelisek, General Manager, Titleist Golf Clubs.  “The original MB and CB models were so well received on Tour, as well as in the marketplace, that we knew we had succeeded in delivering the core design fundamentals that resonate with the traditional blade player.  We did identify through our work with the world's best players, however, some areas where we could make improvements, which we incorporated in the new models.  The new MB and CB still embody those key design elements that made the first generation so well accepted."
