Hi Team Titleist,
Qualifying for next week’s U.S. Open at Torrey Pines began months ago, with more than 8,600 golfers teeing it up at 108 Local Qualifiers held across the United States. It ended on Monday – “Golf’s Longest Day” – with a total of 66 players having earned tickets to Torrey through 36-hole Final Qualifiers held at 11 different locations. (Nine were held on Monday in the U.S., with two others held May 24 in Japan and Dallas.)
Of the just over 800 players who competed at a Final Qualifier, 73% percent of them teed up a Titleist Pro V1, Pro V1x or Pro V1x Left Dash golf ball, including 49 of the 66 (74%) players who ultimately qualified for the season’s third major championship.
All five amateurs who earned the trip to San Diego through Final Qualifying also played a Titleist golf ball, with four of the five gaming a Titleist TSi driver, the most played driver model this season on the PGA TOUR.
The other three amateurs who will be competing at Torrey Pines also play a Titleist golf ball – the 2020 British Amateur champion (Pro V1), 2020 U.S. Amateur runner-up (Pro V1) and the recent Big 12 individual champion and U.S. Walker Cup team member (Pro V1x), who got in the field this week as first alternate from the Columbus, Ohio, qualifier.
Titleist Brand Ambassador Ty Strafaci, the 2020 U.S. Amateur champion, who has recently turned professional, will be competing with a NEW Pro V1x and full bag of Titleist, including TSi3 driver, U•500 utility, T100 and 620 MB irons, Vokey Design SM8 wedges and Scotty Cameron 009M putter.

Seven of the 10 players who qualified for the U.S. Open through the European Tour’s three-tournament qualifying series, ending with last week’s Porsche European Open, also played a Titleist golf ball.
