By The Numbers: The 2018 John Deere Classic

 At this week's John Deere Classic, Titleist is once again the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 81% of the field (126 players in the field of 156) trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, nine times the nearest competitor with 9% (14 players) and more than all competitors combined.

Making that figure even more impressive is the fact that this 81 percent mark of players in the golf ball category is the highest ever for a golf ball manufacturer in a 156-player field (according to Darrell Survey records dating back to 1996).

This week at TPC Deere Run, Titleist is also the top choice in the hybrids (32) and irons categories (45). Vokey Design Wedges topped the approach, sand and lob wedge (211) category and Scotty Cameron putters are the choice of more players than any other brand with 56 in play.

One month after their official PGA Tour launch, the momentum continues to roll at The John Deere Classic for new Titleist TS drivers. Of the 33 players gaming a Titleist driver at the event, 16 are playing a new TS model (TS2: 10 | TS3: 6).

To date, between the PGA Tour and the European Tour, 61 different players have put a new Titleist TS driver in play. Click here for a full listing.


This also marks the third week since Titleist introduced the new TS2 and TS3 fairway metals. Of the 44 Titleist fairway metals in play at The Deere, 16 were a new TS model (TS2: 9 | TS3: 7).
