Hey, Team Titleist,
We just wrapped up another exciting season on the PGA TOUR. Once again, Titleist players shined brightly, collecting 28 victories for the year, more than three times the nearest competitor with 9. During that same time 72% of players who competed in a PGA TOUR event teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x.
There were a scores of historic highlights as well as a handful of deflating lowlights (Ryder Cup), but for me, the moment that really stood out was Webb Simpson’s performance in capturing his first PLAYERS Championship. Webb basically lapped the field on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. He matched the course record with a second round 63 and tied the 36 and 54-hole PLAYERS scoring records at 15-under 129 and 19-under 197, respectively.
With a 7-stroke lead, he was able coast to victory on Sunday, but the moment that I’ll always remember was the long bunker shot he holed on No. 11 on Saturday. Such a tough shot, but there never seemed to be any doubt that it was going in:

We want to hear from you. What moment will always stand out for you from the 2017-2018 season? Thanks for your thoughts!

Great thoughts on the year Rick. Webbs four rounds that week were magical.
Although not a Titleist player, I enjoyed Brooks Koepkas year. Truly deserving of the POY honor.

Yes, there were exciting moments in this years golf season. For me there were two highlights that really stood out. Francesco Molinari's win in The Open Championship. His consistency throughout the tournament and throughout the year really stood out to me. Secondly, sorry Rick, but the European win in the Ryder Cup was a true highlight. The shots that were played during that tournament showed the quality of the golfers simply amazing.
