An international field has assembled in Akron, Ohio this week for the WGC Invitational at Firestone CC. Featuring 76 of the best golfers in the world from 22 different countries, the field will be tested by the difficult 7,343-yard South Course as players look to claim the prestigious title and build momentum leading into next week's PGA Championship.

 With one of the largest purses of the season and bonus FedEx Cup points at stake, it's no surprise that 42 players in the limited field will trust a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success.

That’s more than four times the nearest competitor with 9 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the hybrids (12), irons (23) and sand, lob and approach wedge (63) categories. Titleist also shared the top spot in the driver category with 21 drivers in play.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!

    When you have a top field assembled like you do at Firestone, the you would expect more players having Titleist in their bags.  No surprise here.  Only ball in my bag.
