To be at your competitive best means never counting yourself out, giving everything you have until the final shot, and having total confidence in your equipment. 

Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott proved this and more at The Barclays on Sunday by rallying to earn his first career FedExCup Playoffs victory. 

Relying upon the Pro V1 golf ball and a complete bag of Titleist equipment, the reigning Masters champion fired a final round bogey-free 66 for his second win of the season, vaulting him to No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

In addition to Scott’s final round heroics on the PGA TOUR, Titleist golf ball loyalists were winning the world over, earning victories on the LPGA, Champions, Australasia, Japan and South African tours. Six more wins this week advances Titleist’s year-to-date victory count to 99, more than three times the nearest competitor with 31.

And with that, let's take a trip around the golfing world with the TeamTitleist Monday Recap.

PGA TOUR: The Barclays

Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott closed with a bogey-free, 5-under 66 en route to an 11-under-par 273 victory total. He finished one shot clear of four players, including fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Graham DeLaet. Other Titleist golf ball loyalists finishing among the top 10 and ties included D.A. Points (Pro V1x - T6), Rickie Fowler (Pro V1x - T9) and Jason Kokrak (Pro V1x - T9).

Among the 123-player field at The Barclays, 79 players relied upon Titleist golf balls, more than four times the nearest competitor with 16.

What’s in Adam Scott’s Bag?: Titleist Pro V1 golf ball, 913D3 driver (9.5), 910Fd fairway metal (13.5°), 712U utility iron (2), MB irons (3-9), Vokey Design SM4 pitching (48°) wedge, Spin Milled sand (54°) wedge and TVD K-grind lob (60°) wedge, Scotty Cameron by Titleist prototype Futura X long putter.

What’s in Graham DeLaet’s Bag?: Titleist Pro V1x golf ball, 913D3 driver (7.5), 913F fairway metal (13.5°), prototype CB (2-5) and prototype MB (6-PW) irons, Vokey Design SM4 sand (54°) and lob (60°) wedges, Scotty Cameron by Titleist Newport Tour putter.

DeLaet’s Sunday charge of 7-under-par 65, matched the low round of the day. The performance vaulted him to No. 9 in the Presidents Cup standings. With one week remaining for players to earn qualifying points, the Canadian is likely to make the International team along with Scott. The T2 finish at The Barclays was a career best for DeLaet, who led the field in Driving Accuracy, converting over 91% of his drives with his 913D3 driver and Pro V1x golf ball. DeLaet also put in a new set of Titleist prototype CB (2-5) and prototype MB (6-PW) irons in play for the first time at The Barclays.

This is why you hit all those range balls, this is why you roll all those practice putts, this is why you get up before dawn and get home after dark... it's playoff time!

The PGA Tour postseason is under way this weekend, and kicking off the first round of the FedExCup Playoffs is The Barclays.

Only the top 125 performers from the 2013 regular season earned a spot in the playoff opener, and the field will continue to shrink as the race for the FedExCup continues.

And among this elite class of 125, 79 players in the field will look down confidently at the Titleist script on their Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball. That's nearly five times the nearest competitor with 16, and more than all other competitors combined.

Titleist is also the top choice in the irons (29); sand, lob and approach wedge (116); and putter (39) categories.

Be sure to check out the video above to go inside the ropes with Team Titleist at Liberty National, as we snapped a few photos and videos while Titleist Brand Ambassadors Adam Scott, Bill Haas, Jason Dufner, Webb Simpson, Charley Hoffman, and Jimmy Walker (to name a few) prepared for the postseason.

Play well this weekend! #TeamTitleist

When you're faced with a shot into the wind, controlling the flight of your Titleist golf ball is critical to stopping your ball close to the target.

In this video, Titleist Brand Ambassador Tim Clark shares a few words of wisdom for keeping your ball on line and under the wind, so you can enhance your shot making skills. A few of Tim's keys to executing this shot:

  • Keep your wrists relatively quiet
  • Shift your weight over your lead leg
  • Adjust your swing path to produce a cut ball flight

Check out the video for a step-by-step review with Tim and give this a go the next time the wind is up. In the meantime, let us know what you think about this tip and feel free to share your own thoughts on how to control shots during those blustery days.

This past week and leading into the weekend, the action at the Solheim Cup had the hallmarks of a New Years Eve celebration - a global audience anxiously awaiting for the ball to drop (albeit a golf ball), some spectacular fireworks in the form of clutch putts and unbelievable shots, and a few bottles of celebratory champagne for Team Europe.

In their quest to retain the Solheim Cup, Team Europe made event history by capturing their first victory on American soil and Titleist golf ball loyalist Caroline Hedwall (Pro V1) achieved another Solheim first by compiling a 5-0-0 record in competition.

Among the 24 players in competition, 16 relied on a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success, more than five times the nearest competitor with three and more than all other competitors combined. And of the 12 victorious players in blue and gold, 9 relied on a Titleist golf ball.

Rounding out the action from this past weekend on the worldwide professional tours, Titleist Brand Ambassador Peter Malnati (Web.com Tour) along with Pro V1x loyalist Bart Bryant (Champions Tour) and Pro V1x loyalist HyungTae Kim (Korean PGA Tour) found the winners circle.

Titleist golf ball players have now won 93 time on the worldwide professional tours in 2013.

Sure, this week’s Wyndham Championship isn’t a major, but there is certainly a lot on the line for the 156 players in the field.

The Wyndham Championship represents the final regular season event of the 2013 PGA Tour season and the final chance for players to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs, which kick off next week. Players will also be vying to move up the rankings to lock in a 2014 Tour Card and hopefully put an exclamation point on their 2013 campaigns.

So, among the field of 156 players at Sedgefield Country Club this week, 100 will put their trust in a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball. That’s more than 4 times the nearest competitor with 23 and more than all other competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice of players in the sand, lob and approach wedge (156) and putter (61) category.

Be sure to check out the photo gallery above to see what Titleist Brand Ambassadors Morgan Hoffmann, Matt Jones, Jason Bohn, Will Claxton, Brad Fritsch, Ben Kohles and more were up to earlier in the week.
