The PGA Tour's Texas Two Step continues this week in Fort Worth at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Rich in tradition, the tournament honors the history of golf by awarding its champion an official Scottish tartan plaid jacket along with a spot on Colonial's Wall of Champions - a marble facade that greets players as they step onto the first tee.

And in hopes of adding their name to the famed wall, 75 players in the field will trust a Titleist golf ball for their success, five times the nearest competitor with 15 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the iron (29 - tied), sand, lob and approach wedge (104) and putter (42) categories. 

Check out the video above featuring some of the action from earlier this week at Colonial and good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!
