Hello Everyone,

Mike and I have been talking about the concept of starting a TT discussion, while out on tour. We thought some of you would enjoy a look through through the TT Lens, and maybe even be part of our creative process.

So, let's give this a try.

Feel free to comment on the updates and photos, make suggestions of what photographs you'd like to see, or even recommend a restaurant in town.

We landed at PBI at 12pm.

Found our way to PGA National.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Will Claxton won the prize for first Titleist staff bag spotted by the TT Lens.

Will check back in a bit later, so please leave your comments and feedback below.

I like seeing behind the scene stuff like this.

We are rained out at the moment in Florida.

Thanks for the photos Joe. Looking forward to seeing how this evolves.

About 3pm the clouds rolled in and the sky turned purple. This ominous canopy sent everyone off the practice range and into the locker rooms. The TT Lens headed for the Titleist tour van, where we chatted briefly with Titleist Brand Ambassador Martin Flores. Martin says, "Hello, Team Titleist."

The rain was on and off until around 5 when most everyone packed it up for the day.

Here's a few of the lines of dialogue floating around PGA National today:

  • "Weather's a little different this week..." -- last week we had snow in Arizona, this week the forecast is for temperatures above 70 and humidity that could turn to rain at a moment's notice.
  • the belly putter chatter was hot once again
  • a few Titleist Tour Reps were talking up dinner at a local Chipotle.

From inside the media tent, we noticed that Titleist Brand Ambassador John Merrick is scheduled for a press conference later in the week following his recent win at Riviera.

Enough talk, check out some of the photos the TT Lens caught today:

Inside the Titleist Tour trailer, the TT Lens spotted this cool assortment of Titleist equipment.

Titleist Tour Reps Aaron Dill and Jim Curran getting their game plan together for Tuesday.

Wouldn't it be nice to have your name at the top of that sheet?

Rain, and lots of it. We spot the Dolphins logo, and we share a laugh over "Laces out, Dan."

Tomorrow, we'll be inside the ropes and inside the Titleist tour van to bring you more images through the TT Lens.

What are players favorite on-course snack? Or drink?

How about some close-up pics of yardage books?. I would love to see how tour players keep their books.

Would love some more on the tour van also.

+1 on all of the above.

What a great post. Thanks for the opportunity.
  • Would like to see pics of inside the Tour van while the guys are working.  Have always wanted to be in there to see what goes on and what the guys are requesting (maybe pic up a few adjustment pointers)
  • Pictures of the different Titleist players setups and bags would be cool.  
  • Would be a great contest to get an autographed hat with a bunch of the staffers names.
  • A day in the life of a Titleist rep.

Very cool post Joe and Mike!  Finally we are able to live our dreams through the internet, and see what it's like behind the scenes!  I love seeing the pictures and, am very jealous of your guys profession!

This is an unreal idea, would love some in depth look at shaft options and sure fit settings some of the guys use. Along with wedge grinds and personalization done. Look forward to posts throughout the week. Have fun guys.

Joe and Mike,


This is a great concept.  Thanks for the photos.  I would like to see a "day in the life" of a tour pro if possible.  Maybe have Joe follow a Titleist staffer from the parking lot in the morning to the parking lot at the end of the day.  It would be great to see what a typical day looks like for a tour player.

A few of you asked to see a yardage book out here at the Honda Classic. This morning  Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jason Dufner and Matteo Manassero finished up a range session and headed out on the course for a practice round. Team Titleist Lens went along for the ride.

On the second hole, Matteo's caddy Dave was nice enough to let our lens have a few snaps of their yardage book.

The book is more descriptive than most books I'm used to seeing. Add in Dave's notes and you really have a lot of data to factor into performance. Have a look at the gallery below.

You mean they don't walk off the yardage from the sprinkler heads?  :)

And who says caddying is easy...??? I like the putting green details.

Great idea Scott! Some video would be cool to!

It would be cool to see a video inside the tour van of you guys building a club for one of the tour players and the process of it.

Great idea Mike and Joe!  Love this!

Love the yardage book.  Would love to hear and see the routine of a Staffer as they go through practice round, range, gym etc.  Just what their routine is.  Glimpse at what it's like to be a Tour member of Team Titleist.  

Look forward to seeing more

just as a side note, the yardage book for honda is done by mark long - an old caddie.  he goes out there with a sophisticated gps device strapped on his back and makes these digitized books.  the only other one i've see done like this is for the at&t national at congressional.  however, i think more tour stops are going to this style of book and moving away from the hand drawn ones done by "gorjus" george lucas.

Wow guys this is so neat!! To me its all awesome! I like the pics and it would be cool to maybe see some video's from behind the scenes with all the TT players and reps. Really cool guys!

This is a great idea and would like to see what the guys are using and the different shaft options they have put in their bags. Also would like to see some discussion regarding their equipment and what they do to have it fitted to their specific needs. I know that the Titleist trailer is on scene for the early beginnings of each tournament and that is another area which could be covered.

Really cool, thank you for taking the time to do this!

Hello Everyone,

First off, thank you for the creative ideas and great feedback. As we continue to travel with the tour, the Team Titleist Lens will keep your ideas in mind. Next week, we head to Doral, and TT Lens is primed for a number of great opportunities to bring the Team Titleist community closer and closer to the action on tour.

After a few days of Florida sunshine, TT Lens is back in Fairhaven.

Here are a few more photos from our travel to close out this thread.

Following his win at Riviera, Titleist Brand Ambassador John Merrick had a busy week at the Honda Classic with the media. Pictured here, John hosted a video chat with fans on PGATour.com.

Wednesday morning's pro-am brought an early tee time for Pro V1x loyalist Rickie Fowler, who parked his Nissan GTR right behind the Titleist Tour trailer at PGA National. Notice the orange brake discs!

Finally, Titleist Brand Ambassador Graham DeLaet sent a few of his Pro V1x golf balls high and soft, while practicing before his pro-am round Wednesday. Graham is focused player who's always looking to maximize his practice time, squeezing out every drop of improvement he can.

This thread started as an experiment, and on the strength of our Team Titleist community, proved to be a great deal of fun. TT Lens looks forward to future threads and sharing more ideas and more collaborative Team Titleist stories.

In the meantime, stay tuned for the next installment of the "On the Range" blog post on the Tour Blog...

My name will be on the top of that sheet one day.

Great Idea!  Really cool to see the day to day activities of the Titleist team "behind the ropes."  Look forward to seeing more!

This thread is outstanding!  Love the yardage book!  Thanks for the look inside.

Great thread TT Staff ! Like everyone mentioned previously I want to see everything they mentioned about our Titleist Tour Players equipment's, Titleist Tour Van, what kind of a routine the Titleist players go through each tournament, if any.  Having a live video chat with the Titleist Tour Players on this site would be awesome too.  Or, chatting with them while they are on the range practicing, and seeing what they are working on and maybe pick up some tips.  Keep up the great work :)

Love the yardage book! This is a great idea
