Titleist Brand Ambassador Alistair Presnell is making his PGA Tour debut this week on an unlikely stage - the WGC-CA Championship being contested at the TPC Blue Monster at Doral.  Presnell qualified for the event by finishing second to fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Michael Sim on the 2009 PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit.  Presnell has been playing most of his golf on the Nationwide Tour courtesy of his victory at the 2009 Moonah Classic, an event co-sanctioned by the Nationwide Tour and PGA Tour of Australasia.  He'll be looking to improve on his 28th place finish on the 2009 Nationwide Tour money list to secure a full-time spot on the PGA Tour in 2011.  For more on Alistair and his debut this week at Doral, be sure to read Jim McCabe's blog post on Golfweek.com.

Alistair Presnell has his sights on reaching the PGA Tour full-time.

PGA Tour - The Honda Classic
According to the Darrell Survey, Titleist was the GOLF BALL of choice at the Honda Classic with 89 players, more than five times the nearest competitor with 17.  Titleist was also first in IRON SETS with 37 players; SAND, LOB and APPROACH WEDGES with 102; and PUTTERS with 54 in play.  Titleist was also second in the DRIVER (30) and FAIRWAY METALS (33) categories.

The victory by Titleist Pro V1 loyalist Camilo Villegas is the 8th for Titleist golf ball players through the first 10 events on the 2010 PGA TOUR.  Villegas also finished among the Top 12 in three key statistical categories, including Putts Per Green in Regulation (1.660) with his Scotty Cameron putter, as well as Greens in Regulation (73.6).  He also finished T12 in Putts Per Round (28.3).

PGA European Tour - Maybank Malaysian Open
According to Sports Marketing Surveys, Titleist was the GOLF BALL of choice at the Maybank Malaysian Open with 102 players, more than four times the nearest competitor with 23.  Titleist was also first in IRON SETS with 39 players; and SAND, LOB and APPROACH WEDGES with 120.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Brett Wetterich returns to action this week at the Honda Classic, 21 months since he last teed it up on Tour at the 2008 Memorial Tournament.  Since that event, Brett has been sidelined by numerous injuries to his shoulder, wrist, and knee.  Playing this season on a major medical exemption, the 2006 EDS Byron Nelson Championship winner has 17 events to earn enough money to keep his exempt status.  For more on Brett's return to the PGA Tour, be sure to check out Craig Dolch's article on PGATour.com.

The Titleist equipment in Brett's bag reflects the fact that he has not had the opportunity to test much of the new gear released during his absence.  With the new groove regulations in effect as a condition of competition on Tour this season, though, Brett has moved into the new CB irons and Vokey Design Spin Milled C-C wedges.  Vokey Tour Representative Aaron Dill worked with Brett earlier this week and noted that "Brett was having some trouble with spin and launch and with his 60 degree digging too much.  We went to more bounce and tried the SM1 56-14 and SM2 60-10."  After working with the wedges during his practice rounds, Brett noticed dramatic improvement over his previous wedges.

Hello Everybody.

I'm back home on the Gold Coast and enjoying the Saturday afternoon. I got back a few days ago and have been practicing with my coach. I spent a few days in Southern California training after match play in Tucson. Congratulations to Ian for winning Match Play, he's clearly playing well and has been for several weeks. I felt good after my first round against Angel Cabrera, I played well and was confident going into the second round. Unfortunately I met the eventual winner in the second round. I'm feeling good about my game and I am hopeful it will all come together soon. It's just a matter of time. I look forward to getting back to the states in about a week to compete at Doral. I've always liked the Florida swing and look forward to getting back to Miami.
