"Why are your contests/sweepstakes only for U.S. residents?"

We hear this question a lot and we certainly appreciate the concern and feedback we receive around having contests/sweepstakes that are open to all of our Team Titleist members including individuals who live outside of the U.S.

So we wanted to provide our Team Titleist members with a little more detail and information on why our contests/sweepstakes are only for current residents of the U.S. 

Unfortunately, every country has specific laws, rules and regulations that govern contests such as the sweepstakes we typically offer, ranging from laws that require governmental registration to laws that forbid these types of contests altogether. Because of the wide range of rules and regulations, it is not possible to create a contest that is universally available to all of our valued Team Titleist members.

However, from time to time, our websites in certain countries sponsor contests for residents of those countries. If we host a website in your country of residence, we suggest visiting it for further details.

We hope this is helpful and we thank you for your support of Titleist.

Hmm... You want our money, but will not allow us to win any prices due to a small extra fee in some countries.

I start to think that my next set of clubs will not be Titleist (I'm now on my 3rd set)

Hi Steen,

I apologize for any disappointment but the primary challenge we encounter in making sweepstakes that originate in the U.S. available to all of our valued Team Titleist members is the various rules and regulations that are specific to every country and region. 

However (as noted above), from time to time, our websites in certain countries sponsor contests for residents of those countries. If we host a website in your country of residence, we suggest visiting it for further details.

we understand that sweepstakes are only for the USA, but just remember many countries around the world have golfers that play with only your brand name.i am a golfer with a 6 handicap and i am fully kitted titleist products and only play with pro v's so its quite sad to think that the agencies in South Africa cannot pass on the option to its ambassadors. we also stage the nedbank challenge at sun city, had the presidents cup and many international tournaments, so its time the suppliers here also give back to the players as a token of good and fair games-menship. yours for ever putting adrian linden RSA

Thanks for the info

Thank you for the information i understand where you are coming from. But it really disappoints me how I don't have the opportunity to win any prizes from my favourite golfers Rory Mcilroy and Adam Scott because I live in the U.K.

Thank you for your time Evie :)

Hi Evie,

Make sure you check out the UK site as they run sweeps as well. One recent sweeps provided a TT member with the opportunity to caddy for Rafa Cabrera-Bello at the BMW PGA Championship. Here's a post featuring the sweeps winner:

You should include all USA territories(Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, ETC.). Most of the people that live on these territories are USA citizens. And as territories they are USA also. Keep up the good work with your products, I'll buy them cause I believe in them and I like to think of myself as a "Serious Golfer". Thanks
