It's always a busy week at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, and this week was no exception!
Not only do the Titleist Tour Team look after the needs of European Tour players, but regional Titleist ambassadors also qualify for this flagship event through the PGA Club Pro Championship and Titleist PGA Play-Offs.
Simon Lilly, David Smith, David Patrick and Chris Gill were all hoping for big weeks and were regular visitors to the truck to have clubs checked, adjusted or built.
At the time of writing, the top of the leaderboard at Wentworth is littered with Titleist ambassadors and Titleist golf ball loyalists, including Peter Lawrie, George Coetzee, Robert Rock, Bernd Wiesberger, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Ken Ferrie, Andrew Dodt and Mark Haastrup to name but a few!
Good luck to all Titleist staffers and ball players this week!

Pro V1x loyalist Nicolas Colsaerts tamed the wind and his opponent to capture the Volvo World Match Play Championship at Finca Cortesin in Spain.
The win follows up the Belgian’s first career win earlier this season at The Volvo China Open.
Three of the final four players placed their trust in the Pro V1x golf ball at the Championship – with Paul Lawrie and Titleist ambassador Rafa Cabrera-Bello also making it to the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, on the PGA Tour, Titleist ambassador Jason Dufner sank a 25-foot downhill putt on the last hole for a one stroke win at the Byron Nelson Championship – his second win in four weeks!
Dufner’s 11-under 269 total was enough to secure victory by one from Pro V1 loyalist Dicky Pride.
What’s in Jason Dufner’s bag? Pro V1 golf ball, 910 D2 (9.5) driver, 910F (13.5) and 906F2 (18.0) fairway metals, AP2 (4-P) irons, Vokey Design SM4 sand (56) and lob (60) wedges and Scotty Cameron prototype putter.
Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the Byron Nelson Championship with 102 players, compared to 18 for the nearest competitor.
Elsewhere, on the LPGA Tour, it was an all Pro V1 final at the Sybase Match Play Championship where Azahara Munoz topped Candie Kung 2 and 1 to clinch her first LPGA Tour event.
Again, Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the Sybase Match Play with 114 players, compared to 19 for the nearest competitor.
On the Japan Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Jay Choi fired a final round 7-under 65 to come from behind and earn his first Japan Golf Tour win by one shot at the Totoumi Hamamatsu Open

It's amazing what you find when you go for a nose around the warehouse at Titleist's European HQ in St Ives in Cambridgeshire - so Team Titleist did just that. And guess what we found.......
A pallet at the far end of the warehouse housed a number of large boxes with the names of Titleist tour ambassadors on them.
The likes of Soren Hansen, Brett "Rummy" Rumford, Lee "Slatts" Slattery, Phil Price, Tano Goya, recent winner Bernd Wiesberger........
.....Gregory Bourdy and Rafa Cabrera-Bello amongst others.
Making sure no-one was about, we opened one of the boxes and pulled out.....
....George Coetzee's new Titleist Staff Bag!
All of the new staff bags will be given to players for the first time at the BMW PGA Championships next week and we thought Team Titleist members would like a sneek peek!
The new bags will be available at retail from next month.
