Team Titleist is in Los Angeles, and we're looking forward to meeting up with defending Northern Trust Open champion and Pro V1x loyalist Aaron Baddeley today at Riviera.

Despite a busy Wednesday schedule, Aaron, a member of last year's International Presidents Cup team, will be taking a few minutes to answer questions submitted from members of Team Titleist.

Fun fact: Last year at Riviera, Aaron missed just 20 greens the entire week (he led the field in G.I.R.). Of those 20 misses, he got up-and-down with his Pro V1x golf ball 18 times.

Have a question for Aaron?

Simply reply to this discussion post with your best question and he will answer as many as he can. Thanks!

Badds, huge fan for many years! Your message via twitter last year when I was in the hospital meant the world to me. Wondering about your Scotty Cameron. I have heard you like the finish removed, is this something you do on your own, or let the Custom Shop take care of? How often do you tinker with your putter? Good luck this week in your title defense!! @RKGolf96

Good Day , Last year you averaged about 290 yards on your Drives. Have you done anything to gain some distance this year? Ball ? Equipment ? Bill

Good luck this week, Badds!  I feel like there is a majority of amateur golfers who tend to think too much while on the golf course.  What all do you think of during your 4+ hours of walking around out there?

i wanna know :


1) how much more distance i could gain purely based on ball choise.... if i use pro v1 x as compared to nike balls that i use currently ???...just now iam averaging 240 yards..


2) are the pro V1 x balls good to use on PAR 3 holes as well or you suggest the balata balls ..

Bads, do you feel its time to get rid of the unfair advantage of anchoring of the long putter and get rid of it at every level?

Pro v1x is the best ball ever!

Badds, big fan buddy! 

What piece of advice have you got for me in order to get my handicap down... what is the best thing to do, and is ball choice important in order to do so?

Thanks, huge fan. Badds, Are you excited to be paired with bubba to start off the northern trust? I know you guys to back and forth on twitter and seem to be good friends. Best of luck this week and the remainder of 2012. Kevin

At the range should I use the exact same ball as during my round!

How do you go about preparing for different courses in different parts of the world?  There's so many subtle differences that can make the difference between winning and losing.  Any advise would help.

  Can you give us some tips for how you stay focused on the course.  What you do to stay calm under pressure or shake off a bad hole.

Badds whats up?

Watching you at the Presidents cup last year, I thought you were the best putter out there.

What are your main focuses when you are putting? Both practicing and when you are playing?

I play a lot of competitive golf, and I was wondering how you warm up or prepare for your round?  Is there anything I can do to get my round off to a better, faster start?

Hi Aaron,

I am a member at Croydon Golf Club (yering meadows) in Melbourne, Victoria where you played as a junior.

I was just wondering if you have played the new course and did you get coached by Geoff George because he is my teacher and he says i have a lot of potential and that i am one of the longest hitting 15 year old's he has ever seen. i am averaging nearly 260 meters off the tee but my distance control with my wedges is poor, do you have any tips on how to control distance.


Kind Regards,

Jordan Kearney
