Team Titleist is on the grounds of Muirfield and ready to provide inside the ropes coverage of the The Open Championship.
The sun is out and the wind is up as the participants prepare for the year's third major. Titleist Brand Ambassadors and golf ball loyalists alike have been visiting our European Tour Support Van (which is parked right behind the practice range) securing their golf balls, tweaking their equipment and trying on outerwear in case the weather turns for the worse at some point this week.
Among the first to stop by this week was Titleist Brand Ambassador Graham DeLaet. This will mark DeLaet's first appearance at the Open Championship, but not the first time he has played Muirfield. He shared with Team Titleist that he stuck around after playing the Dunhill Links last year and enjoyed a memorable father-son golf trip that included Muirfield on the itinerary. DeLaet loves the links style layout and after knocking on the door several times this year, hopes to make this his first victory since joining the PGA Tour.
Another early visitor included reigning Masters Champion and Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott as he popped in for a quick visit with the Titleist Leadership Team. Adam also spent some time signing Masters memorabilia before heading out to the practice facility to work on his game.
