It was another busy time for the Titleist Tour Team at the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart Golf Links in Inverness this week, as the process of seeding the new prototype Titleist 913 Driver continued.
And this was in addition to the usual weekly tasks of making sure that the majority of the field had their supplies of Titleist balls, FootJoy or Titleist gloves and access to the club workshop in the back of the Titleist Tour Truck.
The next round of fittings for the prototype Titleist 913 drivers carried out by Titleist Tour Technicians Phil Dimmock and Mattias Jelver included Titleist players Phil Price, Jamie Moul, Andrew Johnston, Lee Slattery, Matthew Southgate and Simon Thornton.
"We also did some work with Romain Wattel who wanted to look at some different shafts," explains Phil. "His gamer shaft is the Diamana Whiteboard 73X and this had been delivering good results when combined with the prototype 913D3 8.5 degree head.
"When we looked at four other options, it just gave us the reassurance that we had the optimum set up - when you are getting over 300 yards through the air, with the right flight and shape, you are in a great place!"
Seeding and tour validation of the new prototype Titleist 913 driver will continue around the world over the coming months and Team Titleist will keep you up to date with all the latest developments.

Momentum behind the tour seeding and validation process for the prototype Titleist 913 driver continued last week as Titleist players on the European Tour got their hands on product at the Alstom Open de France.
And as you will have seen on previous blog posts, 14 players stepped onto the first tee at Le Golf National on Thursday with the prototype Titleist 913 driver in the bag.
The list included George Coetzee, Matteo Manassero and Bernd Wiesberger. And the progress has continued this week as the Titleist Tour Team have worked with more players on the range at the Scottish Open (more to follow on that soon)!
Team Titleist was on hand to capture some of the initial reactions to the new prototype 913 drivers after some of the players had hit them for the first time. Hear what they had to say by clicking on the video below:

Titleist is the #1 ball for more players and more champions across the worldwide professional tours. In fact, to date in 2012, Titleist golf ball players have recorded 92 victories around the world, compared to 12 for the nearest competitor. Since the introduction of the Pro V1 in 2000, the golf ball franchise has been the golf ball of choice for more than 1,700 champions worldwide.
Below is a listing of tournaments won by Titleist golf ball players on the major worldwide professional tours in 2012.
This weekend saw four winners on the world's major professional tours placing their trust in the unmatched performance of Titleist Pro V1x golf balls.
And it was major success for Pro V1x loyalist Na Yeon Choi of Korea, as she finished with a 7-under par 281 victory total to capture the U.S. Women's Open by four shots at Blackwolf Run. The win marks the first major championship and sixth career LPGA Tour title for the 24-year-old South Korean star. Fellow Pro V1x loyalist Amy Yang, also from South Korea, closed with a 1-under 71 to finish runner-up. Choi and Yang were the only players to finish the tournament under par.

Choi is the fourth South Korea player to win the event in the five years, following Inbee Park (2008), Eun-Hee Ji (2009) and So Yeon Ryu (2011).

Titleist golf ball loyalists accounted for 108 (69%) of the 156-player field, nine times the nearest competitor with 12.
And on the PGA Tour, a thrilling all-Titleist-Pro V1x playoff was required to separate Ted Potter Jr and Troy Kelly at the Greenbrier Classic. Potter overcame a four-stroke deficit with four holes to play, finishing with his second straight 6-under 64 to match Kelly at 16-under 264. Potter made long putts for a birdie at No. 15 and an eagle at No. 17, and his 5-footer for birdie at No. 18 tied Kelly to force a playoff. And on the third extra hole Potter converted a four foot birdie putt to secure the win.

Nine of the 11 players who finished among the top 10 and ties relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.
Potter, Kelly and Travelers Championship winner and Titleist Brand Ambassador Marc Leishman qualified for the British Open based on their recent performances.

Potter finished second on the Web.com Tour money list last year to advance to the PGA TOUR. With the win he gets a two-year exemption. Kelly underwent hip-replacement surgery in September 2010 after being diagnosed with arthritis. He resumed playing golf five months later and was 11th in Web.com Tour winnings last year. The seeding process of the new Titleist 913 drivers continued for the second week at the Greenbrier Classic with 13 players putting it in play, including five first-timers: Greg Chalmers (913D2), Harrison Frazar (913D2), Hunter Haas (913D2), Matt Jones (910D3) and club professional David Hutsell (913D2). Martin Flores was the top 913 finisher this week, posting a solo 6th finish relying upon the 913D3 (9.5). Titleist was the top choice of more players in the Greenbrier Classic field of 156 in the golf ball category with 101, nearly six times the nearest competitor with 17.
Elsewhere, on the European Tour, Pro V1x loyalist Marcel Siem claimed his second career European Tour title, winning the Alstom Open de France by one shot following a final round 4-under par 67.

Siem's previous win came at the 2004 Dunhill Championship. The victory at Le Golf National gains Marcel a place in next week's Open Championship with the win.

Fellow Pro V1x loyalists Ian Poulter and David Howell were among three players who tied for 4th place, three shots behind the champion.
This was the first week of the new Titleist 913 driver seeding process on the European Tour where 14 players put it in the bag, including Titleist ambassadors George Coetzee and Matteo Manassero. To see more details on the seeding process, simply click here.
Titleist golf ball loyalists accounted for 95 (61%) of the 156-player field, more than four times the nearest competitor with 21.
Finally, a closing round 7-under 65 was enough to give Japan Tour rookie and Pro V1x loyalist Kyoung-Hoon Lee his first tour victory at the Nagashima Shigeo Invitational Sega Sammy Cup 2012. Lee birdied the final two holes to win by two strokes at 19-under 269.

As reported yesterday, the Tour seeding of Titleist’s new 913 drivers in Europe began Monday at the Open de France and Team Titleist was on hand to record the buzz and excitement from players and the Tour Team alike.
As Titleist ambassadors went through the process of seeding the prototype 913D2 and 913D3 drivers, generating data and providing feedback, the Titleist Tour Team made sure each player was properly dialled in to the optimum specifications.
The process continued into the afternoon on Tuesday and again from early on Wednesday morning - as the likes of Bernd Wiesberger, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Tjaart Van Der Walt, Romain Wattel, Gregory Bourdy, Brett Rumford and Ken Ferrie spent time with Titleist Tour Technicians Phil and Mattias.
