We recently brought you the first in a series of tips from Andrew Hall, PGA Professional and Titleist Ambassador.

Last time Andrew looked at a drill to get a better feel for the clubhead through the swing. This week Andrew takes us through the steps to set up for better driving!

Enjoy!


Firing six consecutive birdies on the back nine at the Children's Miracle Network Classic saw Pro V1x loyalist Luke Donald come from five back and win by two!

That stunning run of form by Donald was enough to edge Titleist brand ambassador Webb Simpson (Pro V1x, 909 D3 driver, 910F fairway, 910H hybrid, 680 irons, Vokey TVD sand and lob wedges) to the PGA Tour money title. This leaves Donald chasing a remarkable double, as he bids to become the first player to win the money titles on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour.

Simpson capped off a phenomenal season on the PGA Tour, having won twice, finishing second to fellow Titleist staffer Bill Haas in the FedExCup race and runner-up to Donald on the official money list with over $6 million in earnings in 2011.

Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the Children's Miracle Network Classic with 91 players - seven times the nearest competitor with 13!

The European Tour made it's second stop in Spain as part of a four week Iberian swing, as the Castello Masters was played at the Club de Campo del Mediterraneo. Two Titleist staffers, George Coetzee and Romain Wattel, recorded top 10 finishes, with Pro V1x loyalist Thomas Aiken finishing fifth.

The Titleist Tour Truck was kept busy, particularly on the putter front! Brett "Rummy" Rumford collected his new Scotty Cameron Studio Select Kombi Long and Soren Hansen kept working with his long putter - definitely moves in that direction for a lot of players at the moment! (see pictures in the slideshow below)

Titleist was the clear ball of choice at the Catello Masters with 70 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 13.

Elsewhere on the world's major professional tours, there were wins for Titleist golf ball loyalists Yani Tseng (Pro V1x) on the LPGA Tour, Gavin Coles (Pro V1x) on the Nationwide Tour, Darren Fitchardt (Pro V1x) on the Sunshine Tour, K.J. Choi (Pro V1) on the Asian Tour and Toru Taniguchi (Pro V1x) on the Japan Tour. Another six-win week for the #1 ball in golf!

Earlier this week marked the official opening of Titleist's latest National Fitting Centre in the UK and Ireland, at Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

This expands the Titleist National Fitting Centre network, which already includes St Ives (Hunts) Golf Club in England, Kings Acre in Scotland and the GUI National Academy at Caton House in Ireland. All utilise golf’s most advanced fitting tools and teams of highly-skilled fitters to form part of a global network of club fitting services.

This network ensures that serious golfers around the world can access a Titleist club fitting service and underlines our philosophy of ‘Better Fit. Better Game.’ Opening to the public on October 31st, the new facility will be run by Celtic Manor’s highly-trained teaching professionals who will provide guests with the same fitting processes, equipment and technology that have helped the likes of Titleist Brand Ambassadors Rory McIlroy, Matteo Manassero and Adam Scott claim victories across the worldwide professional tours this year.

Local Titleist Ambassador and European Tour player Phil Price was on hand to hit the first shot at the new facility. And all at Team Titleist would like to wish Phil a happy birthday for today!

To book an appointment please contact your PGA pro or authorised Titleist stockist.

Ferrie keeps the tour truck busy

Kenny Ferrie was on board the Titleist Tour Truck this morning making sure that everyone was kept busy.

He dropped off his bag to get an end of season loft and lie check on his CB (712) irons and Vokey Design SM4 wedges, as well as getting them all re-gripped.

And Kenny has been working with Titleist Tour Tech Rep Scott Morrison to get an optimised set up for his putter. Kenny has been using a 45" Studio Select Kombi, but found that a longer shaft (47") has helped him get his eyes over the ball a bit more.

New sticks for Chile's Tullo

Titleist ambassador Mark Tullo of Chile has a nice surprise waiting for him when he arrives at the Castello Masters Costa Azahar this week - a brand new set of 712 Series irons and a new Titleist staff bag, resplendent with his name and the Chilean flag.

Mark has worked with the team on board the Titleist Tour Support Vehicle (TTSV) to identify the best fit for his game and has made the switch into a blended set of CBs (712) and MBs (712) - with Dynamic Gold X100 High Launch shafts.

Titelist Tour technician Karl Arthur keeps his eye on Mark Tullo's clubs and bag!
