At the PGA Tour’s Travelers Championship, Pro V1x loyalist Kevin Streelman birdied his final seven holes to shoot a final-round 64 and claim his second victory on the PGA Tour. Streelman’s closing stretch is a new PGA Tour record for consecutive birdies to win a PGA Tour event, surpassing the previous mark of six straight established at the 1956 St. Paul Open.

Pro V1x loyalist Miko Ilonen claimed a wire-to-wire victory at the European Tour’s Irish Open. Ilonen opened the tournament with a seven-under par 64 and never relinquished the lead en-route to a 13-under-par 271 total.

On the Champions Tour, Pro V1 loyalist Tom Lehman holed a 12-foot-birdie putt on the final hole of regulation to claim a one-stroke victory at the Encompass Championship. Lehman finished with a 15-under-par 201 total to claim his eighth-career Champions Tour victory.

Rounding out the weekend success, Pro V1 x loyalist Joel Dahmen shot a final-round 69 at the Syncrude Boreal Open on the PGA Tour Canada to card a 22-under-par 266 total to secure his second victory of the season.

With four more wins this week, Titleist’s year-to-date victory count advances to 81. That's more than four times the nearest competitor with 19 and more than all competitors combined.

In total, 11,725 players have teed up Titleist golf balls in competition on the 2014 worldwide professional tours, more than six times the nearest competitor with 1,919 and more than all competitors combined.

The PGA Tour heads to Cromwell, Connecticut this week where players look to tackle the 6,841 yards, par-70 TPC River Highlands layout. With its receptive greens and share of risk-reward holes, players will be looking to card some low scores.

And when it comes to going low, Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 93 players in the field trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That’s more than four times the nearest competitor with 19 and more than all competitors combined.

 Titleist was also the top choice among players in the sand, lob and approach wedge (135) and putters (56) categories and shared first as the top choice in irons (36). 

FAST FACT: The Travelers has a knack for providing exciting finishes on Tour. There have been 21 playoffs in Travelers Championship history, dating back to 1952 when the event was first contested as the Greater Hartford Open. That's more than one-third of the time.

Check out the video above for an inside-the-ropes look at the action from earlier this week as players readied themselves for quick starts at the Travelers Championship.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!

 

Last week at Pinehurst No. 2, Titleist Brand Ambassador Erik Compton capped an extraordinary performance in his first U.S Open competition by converting a remarkable up-and-down for par on the 72nd hole to share runner-up honors with fellow Pro V1x loyalist Rickie Fowler.

Team Titleist caught up with Erik at this week's Travelers Championship where he answered a few questions on his experience at Pinehurst, what it's like being a Titleist Brand Ambassador, his affiliation with the Donate Life organization and his goals as he looks ahead to the second half of the 2014 season.

Check out the video above to hear what Erik had to say in this exclusive interview.

The golf world turns its attention to the Sandhills region of North Carolina this week, where the 114th U.S. Open Championship is being contested on the Donald Ross masterpiece, Pinehurst No. 2. 

Opened in 1907, Ross said that No. 2 was “the fairest test of championship golf I have ever designed.” Recently restored to reflect Ross's original vision, No. 2 will present a unique challenge to players, who will have to master every phase of the game for a chance to raise the championship trophy on Father's Day Sunday.

And as has been the case at the U.S. Open every year since 1948, Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 93 players in the field trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That’s more than four times the nearest competitor with 20 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the iron (35) and sand, lob and approach wedge (126) categories. 

Check out the video above and join us for a tour inside-the-ropes at Pinehurst as we followed players earlier in the week during their preparations for the National Championship.

Good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!

 

The first U.S. Open was played in 1895 at Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhode Island and in addition to a legacy of challenging course setups that place a premium on Par, another special constant is that the event is open to any amateur with an up-to-date USGA handicap index of 1.4 or lower… all they need to do is qualify.

And while qualifying isn’t an easy task, the opportunity to tee it up for a chance to face one of the toughest tests of golf and compete side-by-side with the world’s best players is truly unique.

Watch the video above as Titleist Brand Ambassadors Adam Scott, Jimmy Walker, Jason Dufner and Webb Simpson along with Titleist golf ball loyalists Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler (among others) share their thoughts about qualifying for the U.S. Open.
