This week's PGA Tour event has moved from the island of Maui to Oahu for the SONY Open in Hawaii, the first full-field event of the season.  A total of 144 players have traveled to Honolulu with hopes of getting their 2013 campaign off to a sunny start.

Titleist is the overwhelming top choice in golf balls again this week, with 102 players relying upon a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, more than six times the nearest competitor with 15.  A total of 61 Titleist golf ball loyalists are teeing up a new Pro V1 (12) or Pro V1x (49) prototype golf ball, as the transition to the new models continues to steadily increase.

Titleist was also the overwhelming field favorite in the sand, lob and approach wedge (135) and putter (57) categories with more players relying upon a Vokey Design wedge and/or Scotty Cameron putter for their success into and on the greens.  In fact, Bob Vokey and Scotty Cameron each made appearances on the practice range and putting greens at the Sony, working with players making final tweaks to their short game tools.

Check out the slideshow above for a closer look at some action from around the course and on the range.

Waialae Country Club is a shotmaker's paradise and a favorite among many of the veterans on tour, including Titleist Brand Ambassadors Zach Johnson and Webb Simpson, who break down the keys to winning in the video below.
