This week at the U.S. Mid-Amateur being held at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Ill., players have a little extra motivation to take home the trophy. Actually, make that a lot of extra motivation. The player's name that sits atop the leader board at the end of the tournament will receive an invitation to Augusta National to participate in the 2013 Masters.

As the field of 264 golfers was set, 218 players stepped up to the first tee trusting Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls for their success, more than nine times the nearest competitor with 24 and more than four times all competitors combined.

Titleist also leads the field in iron sets (98), and approach, sand and lob wedges (339).

The 2012 U.S. Mid-Amateur is the latest highlight in a season where trust and confidence in Titleist golf balls and equipment has been on display at many high-profile amateur championships and the NCAA Division I championships.
