    I find it interesting that week in and week out the top of the leader board is filled with Titleist staff or players who started with them. Tiger, Brooks, Rory, Rickie, Phil, Gary, and the list goes on. I get it, all the clubs are great these days and the money is quite convincing, but it’s nice to see those who stuck with the brand that helped get them where they are.

    Titleist has never had a policy to buy superstars for their stable as some of the other retail/annual upgrade competitors have. When the swoosh left the field for equipment, that has more pros not signing 13/14 club contracts anymore. This effect has been seen as many events this year, Titleist has been #1 in not just balls, wedges, and putters on tour, but irons, hybrids, and woods as well. A 25 million a year contract can cope with fewer victories, but at the lower echelons, it is all about winning first, endorsements second. CH-III and Ian are two recent converts that have "rejuvenated" their careers, in part by moving to Titleist.

    Good for Titleist not caving in to the big money game.. Im just glad the most recent Major winner went back to his GSS Scotty!
  5. Well said
  6. You're right - when they bought their own clubs they picked the best available - Titleist!!
    You know, the ones that got them to professional status.

    Now they get paid mega-money to play kit that's made to measure for them and feels how they like clubs to feel... probably like the feel they used to get from Titleist!!

    If there was no endorsement money - I believe Titleist (which is winning the ball count and most club counts now) would dominate the pro ranks because of the quality and consistency of their products shot to shot, round to round, and season to season!!!

    Interesting story behind the transition of Tiger's irons from Titleist to swoosh. He did it one club at a time and it took the whole year. He wanted to make sure they did an exact copy of each club to the original Titleists he played. Guess they needed to match the best to be the best.

    I still think Titleist should have backed a Brinks truck up to Tiger, I understand not doing it to the rest of the guys.
  10. When you buy off the rack I’m of the belief that Titleist is the closest you can get to tour quality. I’ve been in the industry for some time now, I’ve seen certain brands have major issues with quality control. Titleist has not had the same warranty replacement issues at my club/shop as a couple of other brands. You get what you pay for in life generally speaking.
