The second major of the PGA Tour season is less than a week away, but this week in Memphis, the first order of business is the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Benefitting the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the tournament has boasted an impressive list of winners in its 58-year history. The challenging 7,249-yard, par-70 layout at TPC Southwind will test every shot and offers an ideal venue for players seeking a U.S. Open tune-up under tournament conditions and pressure.

 And this week, 96 players in the field of 156 will trust a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success - more than five times the nearest competitor with 19 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice of players in the approach, sand and lob wedge (143) and putter (55) categories.

Team Titleist was on-site early in the week to capture all of the sights and sounds from around the course and on the practice grounds, so check out the slideshow above for a tour inside the ropes.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!
