It was another weekend of strong play across the worldwide professional tours that culminated with a pair of wins for Pro V1 loyalists Mark Wiebe (The Senior Open Championship) and Michael Hoey (M2M Russian Open).
As the play came to a close and the final tallies were recorded this weekend, a combined 13,724 players have trusted their games to a Titleist golf ball on the worldwide professional tours in 2013, nearly seven times the nearest competitor with 2,045 and more than all other competitors combined.
On the Champions Tour at Royal Birkdale, Wiebe closed with a 4-under 66 on Sunday to match fellow Pro V1 loyalist Bernhard Langer at 9-under 271 and force a playoff that concluded earlier this morning. On the fifth playoff hole, Wiebe was able to secure his first major title on the Champions Tour.
Meanwhile, Hoey carded a 7-under 65 on Saturday to cap off a moving-day charge that put him in prime position for the final round at the M2M Russian Open. With steady play on Sunday, Hoey earned a four shot victory to secure his fifth career European Tour title.
What’s in Michael Hoey’s Bag: Titleist Pro V1 golf ball, 913D3 (8.5º) driver, 913F (13.5º) fairway metal, 712U 2, 3 and 4 irons, AP2 irons (5-PW), Vokey Design SM4 sand (54º) and lob (58º) wedges.

With two more wins, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball loyalists have now won 82 tournaments on the worldwide professional tours in 2013, nearly three times the nearest competitor with 28 and more than all other competitors combined.

This week we've talked a lot about the short game. We've heard from Master Craftsman Bob Vokey on wedge setup for The Open Championship and TPI Co-Founder Dave Phillips shared some advice on how to escape the infamous pot bunkers that cascade across the Muirfield layout.
And with the many different short game scenarios that are found on a Scottish links course, we've also enlisted PGA Professional James Sieckmann (one of the leading short game instructors in the game) to share some of his thoughts on wedge play at The Open Championship.
Check out the video above to see what James had to say about what it will take to execute shots when facing tight-lies, gusting winds and firm greens. He shares some great advice that we will definitely be taking to the course the next time we tee it up.
If the fast and firm conditions at Muirfield aren't enough of a test this week at the Open Championship, players will also be greeted by another local course design element that you won't want to bring into play - pot bunkers.
So what do you do if you find yourself climbing down into one of these bunkers?
Dave Phillips, co-founder of the Titleist Performance Institute, checks in and shares another great tip with Team Titleist on how to navigate these dreaded hazards.
And while you might see a lot of pot bunkers where you play, this tip is sure to help your sand game and hopefully lead to more sandies in your future.
Check out the video above and in case you missed Dave's advice on playing into the wind, you can check it our here...

Open Championship conditions vary year-to-year (if not minute-to-minute) but one constant is an emphasis on having the short game in top-form coming into the event. Sometimes that means taking a closer look at your wedge setup and making sure you're taking into consideration the turf along with the different short game shots that will be required to successfully navigate the terrain.
Team Titleist caught up with Master Craftsman Bob Vokey to get his take on what changes players might be making as they look to dial-in their wedge play at Muirfield and found out that a few little tweaks might go a long way.
Check out what Bob had to say in the video above.
