In our latest episode of 18 Shots Presented by Titleist, Mark demonstrates the proper technique for hitting the power draw and how to use the tee box to your advantage. He also provides some great insight into the role that target line, swing path and club face play in ball flight.

Hitting a quality tee shot and getting the ball in play is imperative to shooting low scores. And knowing how to minimize your misses off the tee and steering clear of trouble can help keep those good rounds going.

In the latest edition of Titleist Tips from the Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassador John Peterson provides a few thoughts about how to help players who have a tendency to hook the ball can gain some more control with their drives. 

Check out the video to see John walk us through how teeing the ball lower and focusing on holding your wrist angle can help golfers hit a controlled fade and find more fairways.

It was a Sunday to remember for Titleist Brand Ambassador Tim Clark as he authored a near perfect final stretch where he carded birdies on five of the final nine holes to come from behind and win the RBC Canadian Open. 

On his way to the win, Tim trusted his Pro V1 golf ball and Titleist 913D2 driver to lead the field in driving accuracy by hitting 83.93% of fairways. The win also marked his second career PGA Tour title and moves him up 58 spots in the FedExCup Standings.
