The mission: Improve play and maximize performance on the golf course through fitness.

In Episode 1, Greg and Dave focus on all-around fitness with the help of several special guests, including Titleist Brand Ambassador S.Y. NohTPI Nutrition Advisory Board Member K.C. Craichy, Symetra Tour Player Taylor Carl, TPI Head Athletic Trainer Lance Gill and TPI Advisory Board Member Robert Yang.

**UPDATE: Thanks everyone for your great ideas! We will announce Scott's selections early next week here on the Team Titleist Tour Blog and post pictures of his newly-stamped Vokey wedges.

In just over a week, Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings will drive down Magnolia Lane for the first time as a Masters participant, his bag full of Titleist Pro V1 golf balls and 14 Titleist clubs carefully packed in the trunk.

Four of those clubs will be brand new Vokey Design Spin Milled wedges, which Master Craftsman Bob Vokey is building this week at WedgeWorks in Carlsbad, Calif.

Bob has all the specs. He's just waiting on a few more details…

"Voke's asking what I want custom-stamped on my wedges for the Masters," says Scott, who earned his invitation to Augusta National by winning last year's Greenbrier Classic in a sudden-death playoff.

"I'm hoping Team Titleist can help me with some ideas!"

You heard him.

If you have an idea for Scott's custom-stamping, please log-in in to your Team Titleist account and describe it in the comments section below.

It could be the same word (or words) on each wedge. Or different words on each wedge that go together to create a neat phrase or sentence. Or anything else you can think of!

On Monday, Scott will pick his favorite idea and let Bob know what to stamp on his four Vokeys headed to Georgia.

If your idea is chosen, we'll send you a signed hat from Scott and a special gift from Team Titleist. And best of all, your stamping will go into play on Scott's wedges at the Masters!*

Sweepstakes Rules and Community Policy


Titleist Brand Ambassador Rory McIlroy, golf's new No. 1, recently gave our friends at Team Titleist UK & Ireland a tour of his Titleist equipment.

Rory's current setup is similar to the one he used to win the U.S. Open at Congressional in June, save for a couple significant improvements. In October at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, Rory was fit for new MB (712 Series) irons and changed shafts from Project X Rifle 6.5 to Project X Rifle 7.0. He also added three new Vokey Design SM4 wedges to the bag.

We'll let Rory give you all the details in the above video. For a full list of Rory's equipment, see below.

Ball: Titleist Pro V1x
Driver: Titleist 910D2 8.5º (Fujikura Rombax 7V05 X)
Fairways: Titleist 906F2 13º & 18º (Fujikura ZCom 95 X)
Irons: Titleist MB (712 Series) 3-9 (Project X Rifle 7.0)
Wedges: Vokey Design SM4 46•07º, 54•08º, 60•04º (Project X Rifle 6.5)
Putter: Scotty Cameron GSS Newport prototype (w/ Deep milled face)



Video: 'How Much Do You Practice?'



We recently asked Team Titleist members to send in their questions for the Titleist players and Tour Reps gathered this week at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

We received a lot of great questions on various topics, including Titleist equipment, current equipment trends, playing on the PGA Tour and tips on shooting lower scores.

One of the many questions that peaked our interest came from Brent W. He wanted to know: "How much do you guys really practice?"

We tracked down Titleist players Steve Stricker, Greg Chalmers and Rickie Fowler to hear what they had to say. Check out their answers in the above video.

And stay tuned as we will continue to share more answers to your questions here on the Team Titleist blog.

Video: What's in Michael Breed's Bag?

Most of the time Michael Breed's in front of the camera on his show "The Golf Fix," he's talking about your swing (or someone else's), always offering tips on how to play better golf.

Last week at the PGA Merchandise Show, Team Titleist asked Michael to give us peek into his golf bag and talk about his game, for a change.

In the above video, Michael gives us a tour of his Titleist equipment, from his Titleist Pro V1x golf ball to his Scotty Cameron putter, and explains why his setup works best for him.

Let's do this!
