The 2012 Fall Series rolls on as the PGA Tour cruises into St. Simons Island, Ga., for the 2012 McGladrey Classic. This week, players will be treated to some southern hospitality and beautiful views along the Seaside Course at Sea Island.
In total, 88 players in the 132-player field are trusting Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls for their success, more than five times the nearest competitor with 15 and more than all other golf balls combined. This includes 27 players who will be teeing up the new Pro V1 (3) and Pro V1x (24) prototype golf balls.
Titleist is also first in the sand, lob and approach wedges (93) and putter (50) categories.
Titleist Brand Ambassador Ben Crane will be looking to defend his title after winning the tournament last year in stellar fashion. In 2011, Crane started the final round five shots back and went on to card a 7-under 63 to force a playoff with fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson.
Crane went on to win the playoff and less than 24 hours later, welcomed his third child to the world. Check out this great video Ben sent us last year recapping those exciting days. Watch here.
In the meantime, check out the slideshow above for a closer look at some action from around the course and on the range.
