• Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the WGC-Cadillac Championship with 37 players teeing up Titleist golf balls, more than three times the nearest competitor with 12 and more than all competitors combined. Titleist is also first in Iron Sets (18); Sand, Lob and Approach Wedges (51); and Putters (19).
• Due to the windy conditions this week in Miami, Titleist Brand Ambassador Nick Watney added a Titleist AP2 3-iron to his bag this week temporarily in place of his New 910F 19.0 fairway metal. There are a few holes at Doral that call for lower, more penetrating 220-plus-yard shots, which Nick feels more comfortable hitting with the 3-iron. All of Nick's AP2 irons (3-9) have True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts and are 1º weak from standard, as he is a lower launch/spinning player.
• Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott is playing a new set of custom grind 710 MBs with KBS Tour shafts and a Tour-only satin finish. (Adam's irons are bent 1º weak as well.)
Adam also added a Graphite Design DI-8 shaft with a custom black paint scheme to his New Titleist 910 9.5 driver (switching from a Aldila RIP 80X shaft). He is putting with a 49-inch Scotty Cameron Studio Select Stainless Kombi for the second consecutive week.
• Titleist Brand Ambassador Geoff Ogilvy is putting The Blue Monster's greens with a new Scotty Cameron Triple Black 009 with a sight line. Geoff (pictured, right) has been working with a sight line at home the last couple of weeks, and said that it is helping him better line up his putts.He has also added a 710 pitching wedge to the bag in place of his Vokey Design 250-08 wedge.• Titleist Brand Ambassadors Adam Scott, Charley Hoffman, Robert Karlsson, S.Y. Noh and Nick Watney put in their orders for Vokey wedges with fresh grooves in anticipation of the Masters.
That list is certain to grow in the next two to three weeks.• Titleist Brand Ambassador Rory McIlroy is debuting a new, longer putter this week: A 34-inch Scotty Cameron Del Mar Buttonback in Tour Black finish. He had a 32 1/2-inch Scotty Cameron Studio Select Fastback in the bag for over two years. (Team Titleist spoke with Rory about the new putter, and we'll post that video soon.)• Titleist Brand Ambassador Rickie Fowler "blacked out" his trusty Scotty Cameron GSS Circle T Circa 62 #3 model this week with an all-black finish and black shaft. He's also got an all-black headcover to match.Look out for more pictures of these new clubs in upcoming blog posts here on Team Titleist.
