Challenging rough, tough pin placements, narrow fairways and a lot of pressure.

Welcome to U.S. Open Week.

As many of the world’s best players make their way to Ardmore, Pennsylvania, a true test awaits them at Merion Golf Club. And while a U.S. Open presents one of the toughest challenges and demands precision shot making, it is the type of competition that also drives players to be at their very best.

As we get ready for the drama to unfold, Team Titleist caught up with a number of Titleist Brand Ambassadors and golf ball loyalists to get their take on what it means to compete and what it takes to win.

Check out the video above to see what players like defending U.S. Open Champion Webb Simpson, reigning Masters Champion Adam Scott, Zach Johnson, Bubba Watson, Matteo Mannassero, and Tim Clark (among others) had to say as they look to rise to the challenge.
