What does it take to win the U.S. Open?

Each year a new script is written and each host course typically makes it mark among the history books as the twist and turns unfold.

Last year at the Olympic Club, it came down to a clutch par save on the 72nd hole for Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson, as he secured the victory and added the title of U.S. Open Champion to his resume.

So what was the winning recipe for Webb?

“In the U.S. Open, more importantly than anything, is the mental side of it. You’ve got to be tough. You’ve got to be patient. You’ve got to let things come to you,” said Webb.

Hear what else Webb had to say in the video above as he prepares to defend his title at Merion and see a special moment that we captured earlier in the year that features some pretty exclusive Pro V1x golf balls.

We all know there is a lot of hard work and preparation that goes into a player’s game as they get ready to tee it up at the U.S. Open.

To help provide an insider’s perspective, Team Titleist asked one of its resident experts, Dave Phillips (Co-Founder of the Titleist Performance Institute and Top 100 Instructor) to shed some light on the key shots that players will need to have in their bag this week.

And it just so happens that Merion is one of Dave’s favorite courses, so he was happy to share a few tips on how to manage tough lies out of the rough and how to find the short grass on narrow fairways.

Even though most of us won’t be teeing it up at the U.S. Open, we think these tips will translate well into our games and hopefully help save us all a few strokes the next time we find ourselves in a similar situation.

Watch the video above and make sure you stay tuned in to hear Dave’s pick for this week. Also, don’t forget to head over to the new MyTPI.com to check out their expansive library of drills and exercises to improve your game.

Team Titleist is coming to you from Memphis, TN – the home of Graceland, Beale Street and Sun Records.

The weather conditions were perfect early in the week, as 156 of the best players in the world arrived at TPC Southwind to tee it up for the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic. The field will be battling it out this week for a shot at the trophy and an invitation to next week’s U.S. Open.

And with a chance to earn a spot in the season’s second major, 100 players in the field will trust a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success, more than five times the nearest competitor with 17 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist is also first in the sand, lob and approach wedge (137) and putter (57) categories.

We also had some extra help out on the course and on the range this week as our good friend and Team Titleist member “Memphisunited” snapped some shots to help capture all of the action in his backyard.

So check out the video above to join Titleist Brand Ambassadors Scott Stallings, Jason Bohn, Ben Crane, Martin Flores, Morgan Hoffmann, Jimmy Walker, George Coetzee, and Ben Kohles (among others) inside the ropes and on the range as they prepared for this week's challenge.

Some golfers spend a lifetime on the course and never achieve a hole-in-one. And then there are a lucky few who have multiple aces. But not many of us can say we know someone who has two aces in one round - until now.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Andrew Dodt began his second round of last week's Nordea Masters with a par on the tenth. He walked to the eleventh, stood on the tee, and stared down the pin 175 yards away. A birdie would have been a nice jumpstart to his round. Instead, the 27-year-old Australian holed out for an ace. Dodt birdied the twelfth and added two more birdies to his outward nine to post 4-under par 32.

Any player would be happy with a run like this during a round, but what happened next can only be described as unimaginable. 

Following a birdie on the sixth hole (his 15th on the round), Dodt found himself on the seventh tee, playing 208 yards. For the second time in the round, Dodt's Pro V1x golf ball found the bottom of the cup for another ace! He would birdie the final hole of his second round, posting a 7-under 65.

Congratulations Andrew, you and your Titleist Pro V1x golf ball proved that performance defies the odds.
