Join Titleist Brand Ambassadors Adam Scott,  Zach Johnson and Scott Stallings, along with golf ball loyalist Hunter Mahan for a tour of our very own Ball Plant III in New Bedford, Mass.

We took them behind-the-scenes to get a first-hand look at the making of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls. What they saw was a commitment to quality and innovation, giving them even greater confidence in the ball they play each week.

They also got to meet members of the Titleist family who work every day to design, develop and deliver the #1 ball in golf.

It was an all-Titleist playoff at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic where Pro V1 Loyalist Sei Young Kim birdied the first extra hole to top two players, including fellow Pro V1 Loyalist Sun Young Yoo

 Kim closed with a 5-under-par 68 that included a clutch up-and-down for birdie on 18 to earn a spot in the playoff. After her putt fell, it was back to the 18th tee for the playoff. Kim converted an 8-foot birdie putt to close out the tournament.

“It’s definitely a dream… I’m really happy," Kim told lpga.com. "Since 10 years ago it’s what I’ve dreamed of.”

On the Champions Tour, Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Paul Goydosclosed with a birdie for a 3-under 69 and a one-shot win at the Allianz Championship. Goydos finished the three rounds at 12-under-par 204.

In the season opener on the Australasian Tour, Titleist golf ball loyalist Richard Green relied on the new Pro V1 to capture the season-opening Victorian Open with a birdie on the second hole of a sudden death playoff. In addition to playing the new Pro V1 golf ball, the winner also relied upon the 915D3 driver, 915F fairway metal, 915H hybrid, AP2 714 irons, and Vokey Design SM5 Vokey wedges.

Waste Management Phoenix Open and Titleist Brand Ambassador Brooks Koepka agrees with Fowler, but also notes the importance of quality ball striking if someone hopes to claim victory.

"It's a beautiful golf course with unbelievable views. Truly one of the best layouts we play all year. It is certainly a ball strikers course, the person who hits it the best will have a great shot" said Koepka.

 This week at the Farmers Insurance Open, Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 94 players in the field trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That's more than 4 times the nearest competitor with 19.

Titleist was also the top choice in the approach, sand and lob wedge (153) category.


SCENES FROM THE COURSE

The global Titleist Tour teams have been hard at work fitting many of the top players in the world for the best combination of 915 drivers, fairways and hybrids for their individual games. The ability to satisfy the long game requirements of our tour staff is an important part of our tour seeding and performance validation process for 915 metals.

Since 915 was introduced, over 100 players have put multiple 915 metals in play, recording 15 wins across six different worldwide tours in the process.

"The performance enhancements to the new 915 metals line have provided our Titleist team on the PGA TOUR more options than ever to fit the wide array of launch conditions and yardage gap requirements of the nearly 50 players we service on a weekly basis," says Chris Tuten, Director of Golf Club Player Promotion.

"Just like no two players' launch conditions are the same, neither are their set compositions. From the two model options in the 915 drivers (D2 and D3), fairways (F and Fd), and hybrids (H and Hd), to the SureFit Tour hosel and 16 different loft and lie settings on each, to the variety of shaft and weight options, there is not a player we cannot optimize with 915."

A closer look at the different combinations of 915 drivers, fairways and hybrids in the bags of some top-ranked Titleist Brand Ambassadors demonstrates the individual nature of set composition and reinforces the need for professionally fit golf clubs.
