I had my fitting appointment at the National Fitting Centre at Eagles Nest today. Ryan Goodridge did an outstanding job once again ! It is so great to be able to go to a place where you can trust the recommendations. After trying steel shafts for the first time ever, it just did not feel right. Hey - to each their own. I guess that is why there are so many different options:) After working through the different T Series Irons, we settled on a blended set. 6 through PW will be T150's, 5 will be T200, and my 4 will be T350 as a driving iron. Ryan even suggested we flatten the lie on my clubs which have been up from standard for many many years. I guess my shoulder issues and my age has changed my stance and swing enough to cause the change :) Order is placed ! Looking forward to getting them in my hands and out on the links !!!! Oh yes - it was also suggested I switch from my AVX to the ProV1 in order to help increase my spin rate and control the roll out on my shots. Talk about full service ! Thank you Ryan !!!! I also had the privilege of running into Mr. Henry Brunton while I was on the range. Titleist Fitting Centre and the Henry Brunton Golf Academy both in the same place ! What more can you ask for ?

PGA TOUR | Corales Puntacana Championship Billy Horschel shot Sunday’s best round by two shots, carding a course record-tying bogey-free 63 to earn his eighth career PGA TOUR title. Playing a Pro V1x+ prototype golf ball and Titleist equipment setup that includes his TSR3 driver, mixed set of T100 and 620 MB irons and NEW Vokey Design SM10 wedges, Horschel closed with seven birdies and an eagle to post 23 under, coming from three shots back to start the day and win by two shots. On a windy Sunday in Punta Cana, Horschel hit 13 of 14 fairways, 72 percent greens in regulation and was a perfect 5-for-5 getting up-and-down. HORSCHEL LEADS 1-THROUGH-5 FINISH FOR TITLEST GOLF BALL PLAYERS twitter.com/.../1782398248335946166 Every player in the final top five at the Corales Puntacana Championship played a Titleist golf ball, with 75 percent of the field teeing up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x . 1. Billy Horschel (Pro V1x+ prototype) 2. Runner-up (Pro V1x) 3. Kevin Tway (Pro V1) T4. Charley Hoffman (Pro V1x) T4. Justin Lower (Pro V1x) HORSCHEL ON HIS TITLEIST GOLF BALL “The control of the Titleist golf ball is by far better than any ball on the market. When you hit a shot, when you try to hit a five-yard draw, you want that ball to turn five yards. You don’t want it to draw 10 yards, or you don't want it not to draw. So to be able to control the golf ball is such a vital key in the game of golf. Doesn’t matter what level you’re at. When you’re expecting a shot to turn out a certain way, control wise, and that golf ball is not doing what you want, you have an issue, and with a Titleist golf ball, I’ve never had an issue once.” “It’s a fine margin out here on the PGA TOUR and if you can find any little bit of an edge to give you that little bit of advantage I’m going to take it. And so for me having my spin rates be consistent, having the feel, the softness of the feel around the greens be the same, and how it’s going to land on the green. I want to know that ball, if I hit the shot the way I want, it’s going to produce with the results I want – and I get that, and I’ve gotten that throughout my entire career with the Titleist golf ball.” “For me it comes down to spin. I’m looking for the ball to spin the right amount or in a certain range with every club I have. So 7-iron, I’m looking for it to spin somewhere around the upper echelon and the spin rate of 7,000-7,200. I want control of the golf ball. I want to have the ability to take spin off... And so having a ball that spins more allows me to have more control. And I can take spin off three quarter shots, little half shots. That’s what’s allowed me to be successful on the PGA Tour.” What’s in the Bag? | Billy Horschel Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1x+ prototype golf ball Driver: TSR3 9.0° | Fujikura Ventus Black TR 6 X Fairway Metals: TSi2 15.0° | Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black 70g 6.5 TX and TSi2 18.0° | Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black 80g 6.5 TX Irons: T100 3, 5 | True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 X100 and 620 MB 6-9 | True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 X100 Wedges: NEW Vokey Design SM10 46.10F, 52.12F, 56.08M, WedgeWorks 60V (@ 62) | True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 X100 (46), Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Onyx S400 (52-60) HORSCHEL ON HIS TSR3 DRIVER “The TSi was unbelievable. It was the longest, straightest driver I’ve ever hit. It was the fastest driver I’ve ever played. I achieved my highest ball speed on it, which was 178 [mph]. Loved the driver to death, had no plans of changing, but J.J. with Titleist said, ‘Hey, just give this a shot’... I finally tested it, and I was really shocked by how consistent the ball flight was. And how tight my misses were. I like to hit a little left-to-right shot. The ball wasn’t over-cutting when I missed it. My toe misses, if I did hit it off the toe, wasn’t diving hard left. And so it’s just a lot tighter. And so now that allows me to tighten up my lines, hitting it off the tee. Narrow fairways I can be more aggressive knowing I’ve got a driver that if I do miss it, it's not going to be too far off if I hit it dead center in the face. And then when I finally tested it on TrackMan, I was shocked to see the speed gain. So it's faster. And the dispersion rate off the tee with good from bad is a lot tighter, which we’re all looking for in the game of golf, especially at our level.” HORSCHEL ON HIS T100 LONG IRONS “I like a very soft feel because that’s what my senses are. I can have a good understanding of when it’s soft, where I’ve hit it on the face, whether I’ve hit it good, whether I’ve spun it too much, toe, heel. If it’s a little bit too much of a firm feel, then I can't really distinguish with where it is on the face or did it come off with enough spin, did it not come off with enough spin. So for me, I’ve always liked the softer feel and I think with Titleist, they’ve done a really good job of that, especially with the new T100’s, because when you get into the cavity back irons, it’s really easy to make it a firm feel. It's tough to make it feel soft like a blade. And they've done a really good job with that, with the new T100.” HORSCHEL ON HIS VOKEY WEDGES www.youtube.com/watch “For me, whenever I get a Vokey wedge, I know right away that this product is at the highest standard. It’s the best in the game of golf and it’s going to help my game in the areas I need. And then at the same time, when you have Bob and you have Aaron there on a weekly basis, being able to work with them to fine tune the little points that you're looking for. They offer suggestions whether it be bounce, loft or lies or numerous other things.” KORN FERRY TOUR | LECOM Suncoast Classic Titleist Brand Ambassador Tim Widing emerged victorious from a sudden-death playoff, earning his first career Korn Ferry Tour victory. Widing, gaming a Pro V1x golf ball and 14 Titleist clubs, including a TSR2 driver, T100 irons and NEW Vokey Design SM10 wedges, made three birdies over his final six holes to post the clubhouse lead. Both Steven Fisk and Patrick Cover matched Widing at 20 under to force the all-Pro V1x playoff. For the week at Lakewood National, Widing posted four rounds of 67 or better (67-64-67-66). He led the field in Greens in Regulation (63/74 including two playoff holes, 85%) and Scrambling (10/11, 91%). The 26-year-old Swede also hit 83 percent of his fairways.

Broadhurst put on a ball-striking clinic in the weather-shortened event, hitting all but two greens in regulation (34/36, 94%). The victory marks Broadhurst’s sixth career PGA Tour Champions title. KPGA | KPGA Founders Cup with Hanmaek CC Titleist Brand Ambassador Guntaek Koh made par on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to capture his fourth career KPGA victory. Koh, trusting his Pro V1 golf ball, TSR2 driver, T-Series irons, NEW Vokey Design SM10 wedges and Scotty Cameron putter in his all-Titleist setup, opened the week with a course record-setting 61. Three rounds – and one extra hole – later, Koh secured the trophy. Eleven of the 14 players finishing inside the top-10 and ties trusted a Titleist golf ball.

PGA TOUR | Valspar Championship Titleist Brand Ambassador Peter Malnati was unflappable down the stretch Sunday, coming home in 31 to win his second PGA TOUR title by two shots while leading a 1-2-3-4 finish for Titleist golf ball players. Of the 13 events played this season on the PGA TOUR, 12 have been won with either a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball model. Malnati, trusting his Pro V1x Yellow golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment , including his TSR3 driver, blended set of T-Series irons, NEW Vokey SM10 wedges and Scotty Cameron putter, shot a final round 4-under 67 to reach his winning 12-under total. Malnati, 36, was in total control of his golf ball on the back nine on Sunday, hitting eight of nine greens and converting four birdies from stellar approach shots to pull away from the pack: No. 10: 133 yards to 16 inches No. 11: 83 yards to 4 feet, 5 inches No. 12: 161 yards to 15 feet No. 17: 198 yards to 6 feet, 2 inches He gained over 2.5 shots with his approach play alone over the final round (+2.79). Over the 72 holes in Tampa, Malnati made a field-best 20 birdies. He gained 3.45 strokes on the field off the tee (4th) and over eight shots (8.31, 3rd) on the field on the greens. He led the field in putts per GIR (1.60) and ranked T5 in GIR (65.28%, 47/72).

Cameron Young (Pro V1 Left Dot) T3. Chandler Phillips (Pro V1x+ prototype) T3. Mackenzie Hughes (Pro V1x+ prototype) MALNATI ON HIS PRO V1 x “I remember I was out on the course with J.J. [Van Wezenbeeck, Titleist Director of Player Promotions] in San Antonio, maybe in 2016 or ’17. I was playing [Pro V1] and I loved the way the V flew off the driver, but J.J. was just watching some iron shots. He's like, ‘Man, I think we could get you some more control. We can get you the flight you want by doing other stuff with the driver, shaft, loft, whatever. But your iron play, you’re just going to have more control of the ball. It’s going to stop faster on the greens for you in the X. And I’ve played it ever since and it has been right. My iron stats have improved. All the elements of the game are important out here, but being able to hit it on the green, get it close to the hole – that’s what it’s all about.” “It's the perfect ball for me, gives me just the right amount of spin off the irons and wedges to feel like I’m totally in control. And it still obviously has a great flight with the longer clubs too. “I started using it (Pro V1x Yellow) in Minnesota at the 3M Championship last summer. And the reason I switched to it is because my, at the time, 3-year-old, who is now four, liked them. And so, he's kind of over it now, but it still makes me think of him, and that’s worth a smile or two, which is worth a lot out there for me.” MALNATI WINS WITH T-SERIES IRONS, CLINCHES VICTORY WITH T150 5-IRON Peter Malnati took his blended set of T-Series irons ( T200 4 iron, T150 5 iron, T100 6-9 irons; True Temper AMT Tour White S400 shafts) to the winner’s circle, putting on a ball striking clinic on Sunday. Malnati gained 2.79 shots on the field with his approach play in the final round and hit eight of nine greens on the demanding back nine. One of Malnati’s best shots came on the 198-yard par-3 17th. Tied for the lead, he pulled his T150 5 iron and took dead aim, sticking his Pro V1x to 6 feet, 2 inches from the cup. He converted the birdie to go up one shot with one to play. Malnati’s T150 5 iron was a new addition to his bag this season, and he first put it in play at the Sony Open seeking more height and forgiveness. “I’ve played a T200 4-iron for several generations, and that’s a great transition for me because it’s a little bit more forgiving, but just easy height,” he said. “I was like, if the 150 is kind of in the middle, would that be a nice transition to go to that in the 5 iron? So J.J. sent me one, just purely experimental, but instantly, my carry distance was the same, but launch was a little higher and height was a little higher. And I can easily make it go lower if I need to, but I can't necessarily easily make it go higher if I need to. So that club, having the same look and feel as my [T100] 5 iron, but just launching it a little higher without losing any speed or carry distance seems like a no brainer.” Said Malnati of his Sunday 5-iron at 17: “I remember telling my caddie I needed to make a 2 – I needed to hit it 208. And 208’s a pretty big 5 iron for me, but in the situation I was in, it was just a very normal 5-iron. ... But that was really fun in that moment to just step up, not overthink it, just it's a full 5 iron at the TV tower, go. And to watch that ball fly was a really cool feeling, to have it like tracking the hole there, that was really nice.” MALNATI DIALED WITH TOUR’S FAVORITE DRIVER Gaming his TSR3 9.0° driver (Project X Denali Blue 60 TX), Peter Malnati gained over three shots on the field off the tee (+3.45), setting himself up for field-best 20 birdies. Titleist has been the most played driver on the PGA TOUR for five seasons and counting, with a total of 60 players (39%) gaming a Titleist driver this week in Tampa, 27 more than the nearest competitor. That list also included Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Young , who finished two shots back in solo second. Young, gaming a TSR3 9.0° driver (Accra Tour Z5 65 M5) as well as a TSR 2W 13.0° prototype 2-wood, led the field in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, gaining 4.95 shots. FOUR WINS IN A ROW FOR VOKEY WEDGE PLAYERS Peter Malnati made the move to four NEW Vokey Design SM10 wedges – 48.10F, 52.12F, 56.08M (@57) and 60.04T (@62) – in his first opportunity earlier this season at the American Express Championship. His victory Sunday makes it four straight wins – and five of the last six – for players gaming Vokey Design wedges on the PGA TOUR: Valspar Championship – Peter Malnati (NEW Vokey Design SM10 48.10F, 52.12F, 56.08M (@57), 60.04T (@62) wedges) THE PLAYERS Championship & Arnold Palmer Invitational Champion (Vokey Design SM8 50.12F, 56.14F, SM9 WedgeWorks 60T wedges) Puerto Rico Open Champion (Vokey Design SM9 50.08F, 54.14F, NEW SM10 WedgeWorks 60A+ wedges) Malnati on his lob wedge setup: “At the advice of [Vokey Wedge Rep] Aaron Dill a couple of years ago, I was struggling with some of my pitch shots around the greens, feeling like I was just having to work too hard to hit those ones where the chipping area sits down low and the green sits up high. And he said, ‘you want to try a 62-degree?’ And so I did... And I've had a 62 in the bag ever since. And it helps me a lot.” MALNATI LIGHTS OUT WITH SCOTTY CAMERON PUTTER Peter Malnati gained over eight strokes on the field (+8.31, 3rd) with his Scotty Cameron TourType Special Select Masterful 1.5 tour prototype putter this week at Innisbrook, leading the field in putts per GIR (1.60) with the Newport-style blade. Malnati first put his current gamer in play at last season’s Farmers Insurance Open after a testing session with Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Brad Cloke . In the two events leading up to the Farmers, Malnati had tried a Phantom X 11.5 mallet. “I wanted him to get back to his feels, get back to feeling the blade and not fighting the mallet,” Cloke said. “He experimented with higher MOI, but he’s a feel guy, he doesn’t get real technical. He’s more of, I see it, I want to feel it. This was something that allowed him to get back to putting naturally, like he does. He’s stuck with it ever since Farmers and his putting stats have been outstanding.” For the season, Malnati ranks 13th in total putting and 16th in one-putt percentage. DP WORLD TOUR | Porsche Singapore Classic Jesper Svensson (Pro V1) prevailed in a sudden-death playoff to earn his first DP World Tour title, having shot a course record-matching final round 63 to force extra holes. Svensson, 28, began Sunday five shots off the lead before starting birdie-birdie-eagle. He went out in 30 and continued to take it deep on the back nine, eventually signing for a 9-under round that featured eight birdies and two eagles. Clutch birdies on Nos. 17 and 18 saw him reach 17 under, sending him back to the 18th tee for a playoff. Svensson matched his opponent with a birdie and a par on the first two go-arounds before making a tournament-winning par on the third extra hole. For the week in Singapore, Svensson was in total control of his Pro V1 , gaining 2.72 strokes on the field off the tee, 1.56 strokes with his approach play and 3.48 strokes around the green. PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS | Hoag Classic Newport Beach Playing a Pro V1 golf ball, three-time major champion Padraig Harrington secured his seventh PGA TOUR Champions victory at Newport Beach CC. Harrington made six birdies in his final round — including three in his last four holes — to reach 14-under-par for the tournament and win by one shot. This followed Harrington’s impressive closing stretch on Saturday, which included an eagle and two birdies in his final four holes. He is projected to jump to No. 5 in the Schwab Cup standings. JLPGA | AXA Ladies Golf Tournament Reika Usui (Pro V1x) shot a bogey-free 6-under final round 66 to post 13 under and win for the first time on the JLPGA. ... #TeamTitleist

Just curious with other TT members, What made you switch from other manufacturers to Titleist? Or have you always used Titleist and why? For me, I had TM off the start then moved to miz and when Titleist dropped the 718 AP2's I switched and never looked back. I now sport Titleist throughout my entire bag and love my clubs. I am currently in the process of getting into some new T-series irons and will be booking my fitting soon. I feel that Team Titleist is the strongest community throughout any brand and can ask any questions to members without getting ripped too hard lol What's your thoughts?

PGA TOUR | Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches In absolute control of his Pro V1 golf ball, Austin Eckroat played The Bear Trap in 1 under par to punctuate a three-shot victory at PGA National and capture his first PGA TOUR victory. With 10 holes to play in Monday’s weather-delayed finish, Eckroat pulled away with unwavering ball-striking, particularly through PGA National’s toughest three-hole stretch, playing 15-16-17 in par-birdie-par. “He did it with a straight shot on 15, a draw on 16 and a cut on 17. Complete control,” NBC analyst and Titleist Brand Ambassador Brad Faxon said on the broadcast. Eckroat, 25, led the field in Greens in Regulation at 82% (59/72), gaining more than five shots on the field on approach (+5.829). The longtime Pro V1 player made a field-best 23 birdies, posting four rounds of 68 or better (65-67-68-67).

ECKROAT ON THE PERFORMANCE OF HIS PRO V1 “I've been playing the Pro V1 since I was a kid, it's always been good for me. I feel like I have the control around the greens, [it] has the high ball speed numbers. It does everything I want it to do.” “I mean, the consistency within the ball is something that you really need. It's something I've never worried about playing a Pro V1. Never even crossed my mind to wonder if the bad shot I just hit was my golf ball.” KORN FERRY TOUR | 117 Visa Argentina Open Mason Andersen (Pro V1x) birdied the par-5 18th three times on Sunday – once in regulation and twice in a sudden-death playoff – to earn his first career Korn Ferry Tour win and a spot in field at the 152nd Open Championship at Royal Troon.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Will Zalatoris began the 2024 PGA TOUR season with several recent additions to his equipment setup, including NEW T150 and T350 irons. At The Genesis Invitational at Riviera, Zalatoris turned in rounds of 66-70-65-69 to post 14 under for the week and earn a T2 finish, his best result since his return from injury. During his round on Friday , he notched an ace with his T150 7 iron and Pro V1x golf ball on the 184-yard, par-3 14th. For the week, Zalatoris ranked fourth in Strokes Gained: Approach (+5.283) and finished T3 in Greens in Regulation (68%, 49/72). His 22 birdies led the field at Riviera. “I switched to the T150’s right when I got them, or I guess it was earlier this year." Zalatoris said. "The thing that was so fascinating with the T150’s was that you had more feel than any Titleist iron that we had ever made, but you still had the same forgiveness. And so, when I first tried them, shocker, professional golfers don't hit perfect golf shots all day long, but I would hit one barely on the heel, barely on the toe. And I'm thinking, ‘Oh, I must've lost seven, eight yards on that.’ And it was going the same distance as when I hit it solid. And so, getting that feedback was amazing for me.” “The two biggest things that I always check for with irons is how do they perform out of the rough. Because if I've got a little too much camber out of there, I might catch flyers all day long, which I know it's cool to hit a pitching wedge 190 yards, but it's not cool when you're trying to hit it 150. And then on top of that – I told this to J.J. [Van Wezenbeeck, Titleist Director of Player Promotions] when he first gave them to me – it looked like they were built for me. Just because how they go through the turf, they rip through the turf way faster than the T100's that I was playing before. But I had more forgiveness and more feel, which is a unicorn. And so I've loved that [T150] iron.” “I actually play the T350 in my 3-iron," Zalatoris said. "That iron was built to be kind of a game improvement iron. And honestly, we were on the range when all of us were together in LA testing it, and we were just kind of goofing around. And I was thinking, ‘Man, this thing looks awesome.’ And so, I started hitting some balls out of the rough, started hitting them out of the fairway. I remember Max [Homa] and I spent 20 minutes with this thing, and we were like, ‘This thing is awesome.’ So the wide variety too is something that I think is really cool. Because you're seeing guys that were playing straight muscle backs going to the T100’s. You've seen guys maybe go from T100’s to T150’s, and there's a lot of kind of shuffling going around. It's like, ‘Yeah, I have a game improvement iron in my bag.’ So what. I love that thing. It's my favorite club in the bag. But a lot of the changes that they made this year, especially with the feel, was really fascinating to me.” WHAT’S IN THE BAG? | WILL ZALATORIS Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1x Driver: TSR2 9.0° | D•1 SureFit Hosel, Fujikura Ventus Black TR 7 X Fairway Metal : TSi2 15.0°| A•1 SureFit Hosel, Fujikura Ventus Blue TR 8 X Utility Iron: NEW T350 3 | Nippon Modus3 Graphite On Steel Proto .370 Hybrid 10 ST X Irons: NEW T150 4-PW | True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 Wedges: NEW Vokey Design SM10 50.08F, 54.10S, 60.04T | True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100

LPGA | Honda LPGA Thailand Playing on home soil, Titleist Brand Ambassador Patty Tavatanakit closed in 5-under 67 Sunday in Thailand to earn her second LPGA victory while leading a 1-through-8 finish for Titleist golf ball players. On the 72nd hole, Tavatanakit pitched her Pro V1x golf ball in tight to set up the tournament-clinching birdie at Siam Country Club’s Old Course. It marked back-to-back wins for Tavatanakit, who also won last week on the Ladies European Tour. Also gaming a TSR2 driver, T-Series irons and NEW SM10 wedges, “Patty T” posted four rounds of 67 or better (67-67-66-67), good for a 21-under total that featured 23 birdies and an eagle. She also hit over 80% of her greens in regulation (58/72). Fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Albane Valenzuela finished one shot back after a closing 9-under 63, the best round of the day.

PRO Modus3 115 Wedge TITLEIST GOLF BALL PLAYERS FINISH 1-THROUGH-8 IN THAILAND This week in Thailand, each of the top eight finishers played a Pro V1 , Pro V1x or Pro V1x Left Dash golf ball: 1. Patty Tavatanakit : Pro V1x 2. Albane Valenzuela : Pro V1 T3. Sei Young Kim : Pro V1 T3. Hye-Jin Choi : Pro V1 T5. Natthakritta Vongtaveelap : Pro V1x Left Dash T5. Hyo Joo Kim : Pro V1x T7. Lilia Vu : Pro V1x T7. Emily Kristine Pedersen : Pro V1 TAVATANAKIT ON WHY SHE PLAYS PRO V1 x “I need to hear a good sound from the golf ball. I need to hear it. I need to feel it. The Pro V1x just kind of gives me a little bit more feedback in terms of feel and sound. It spins really good around the green as well, and just full shots and everything just feels good. So that's why I love the Pro V1x ... Titleist has always been the number one ball in golf, so when you go out on the course, you just play and don't think about that.” “When I flight the ball lower, it can still spin really, really well, and when I need to hit it high, I get that max spin for the max carry.” “Off the tee, it does spin a touch more than the Pro V1, which I like because that way I could get maximum carry out of it. It would fly a touch higher, which would make the ball carry a little bit further. And then when I do bring it down, it would still go down. So, it's really manageable, this ball.” TAVATANAKIT MAKES THE MOVE TO NEW SM10 WEDGES Tavatanakit began her 2024 LPGA season in January at the Drive On Championship after adding three NEW Vokey SM10 wedges (50.12F, 56.08M, 60.04T) to her bag. Having previously gamed prior generation Vokey wedges, Tavatanakit worked with Vokey Tour Rep Shane Dyel to determine her setup with the new models. Said Dyel: “What's so special about Patty is her attention to detail and her perception of feel. When I worked with Patty on her SM10’s she could see and feel the difference between her previous generation Vokey wedges and the new SM10 wedges.” “With her wedge setup we talked about how she can be more versatile with every wedge in the bag, and it all starts at the top with her 50.12F. This grind gives her unlocked versatility from full shots in the fairway to low, high-spin runners around the greens. Our change in CG location has allowed Patty to be aggressive on shots when she needs to be.” “Going into her SM10 56.08M, the new model gave her more help with the lower flight and higher spin she always looks for. She has found it to be easier to flight down her shots without sacrificing speed, which was a huge difference from her previous generation Vokey 56.08M. “Lastly, her 60.04T is the most versatile and the most feel-sensitive wedge Patty has in the bag. Without a doubt, Patty saw not only an increase in feel, but also complete sole control compared to her previous generation 60 T grind.” www.instagram.com/.../ VALENZUELA RECORDS CAREER-BEST FINISH Titleist Brand Ambassador Albane Valenzuela carded a final round 9-under 63 to finish solo 2nd, the best finish of her LPGA career. Valenzuela, who finished the week at 20 under, one shot back of Tavatanakit , began her final round with a birdie on the par-5 1st and a hole-out eagle on the par-4 5th. On the back nine, she birdied six of her final eight holes, including Nos. 17 and 18, to come home in 30 and take the clubhouse lead, putting the pressure on Tavatanakit.

Pro V1s, exactly the same. And so, I was like, ‘Okay, I need to add something to my golf ball.’ And so, I put my initials in Sharpie on the back side of my ball. And then I just started doing 200, which was actually kind of funny. I had 200 days off, of not touching a golf club, from when I was out. And so, it's kind of a nice little reminder of where it's like, okay, if I make a couple bogies, it's like, ‘Well, it beats what you were doing for those 200 days.’ But yeah, really, I've kept adding things as the years have gone on, because there's so many guys that play Titleist. And I think it was funny, in my 11th event on Tour, there's three guys standing on a tee with three Titleist Pro V’s, black, black line, exactly the same. And I’m like, alright, I need to start adding stuff to my ball.” On Friday at The Genesis, Zalatoris stepped to the tee on the 184-yard, par-3 14th and pulled his T150 7 iron. He struck his Pro V1x toward the pin and watched it carry the front left bunker before rolling right into the cup for an ace. Zalatoris finished the week ranked fourth in Strokes Gained: Approach (+5.283). He also gained more than a shot on the field Off the Tee (+1.437, 15th) and Around the Green (+1.285, 17th). His 22 birdies for the week at Riviera led the field, and he finished T3 in Greens in Regulation (68%, 49/72). ZALATORIS ON SWITCHING TO HIS T150 IRONS, T350 3 IRON “I switched to the T150’s right when I got them, or I guess it was earlier this year. The thing that was so fascinating with the T150’s was that you had more feel than any Titleist iron that we had ever made, but you still had the same forgiveness. And so, when I first tried them, shocker, professional golfers don't hit perfect golf shots all day long, but I would hit one barely on the heel, barely on the toe. And I'm thinking, ‘Oh, I must've lost seven, eight yards on that.’ And it was going the same distance as when I hit it solid. And so, getting that feedback was amazing for me.” “The two biggest things that I always check for with irons is how do they perform out of the rough. Because if I've got a little too much camber out of there, I might catch flyers all day long, which I know it's cool to hit a pitching wedge 190 yards, but it's not cool when you're trying to hit it 150. And then on top of that – I told this to J.J. [Van Wezenbeeck, Titleist Director of Player Promotions] when he first gave them to me – it looked like they were built for me. Just because how they go through the turf, they rip through the turf way faster than the T100's that I was playing before. But I had more forgiveness and more feel, which is a unicorn. And so I've loved that [T150] iron.” “I actually play the T350 in my 3-iron. That iron was built to be kind of a game improvement iron. And honestly, we were on the range when all of us were together in LA testing it, and we were just kind of goofing around. And I was thinking, ‘Man, this thing looks awesome.’ And so, I started hitting some balls out of the rough, started hitting them out of the fairway. I remember Max [Homa] and I spent 20 minutes with this thing, and we were like, ‘This thing is awesome.’ So the wide variety too is something that I think is really cool. Because you're seeing guys that were playing straight muscle backs going to the T100’s. You've seen guys maybe go from T100’s to T150’s, and there's a lot of kind of shuffling going around. It's like, ‘Yeah, I have a game improvement iron in my bag.’ So what. I love that thing. It's my favorite club in the bag. But a lot of the changes that they made this year, especially with the feel, was really fascinating to me.” PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS | Chubb Classic Stephen Ames (Pro V1) earned his seventh career PGA Tour Champions victory, posting 13 under to win by three. Ames, who won four times in 2023, made 14 birdies on his way to carding rounds of 67-64 to claim the 36-hole weather-shortened event. He hit over 80% of his greens in regulation (29/36) and ranked 1st in Scrambling, getting his Pro V1 up and down on six of seven attempts. ASIAN TOUR | IRS Prima Malaysian Open David Puig (Pro V1) shot matching 62’s over the weekend to claim his second Asian Tour victory in four months. Puig, 22, entered the third round eight strokes off the lead before carding 18 birdies to zero bogeys over his final 36 holes. He finished at 23 under par for the tournament to earn a two-shot margin of victory and a spot in the 2024 Open Championship field at Royal Troon. This week in Malaysia, 70% of the field played a Titleist golf ball — nearly six times the nearest competitor — including nine of the 12 players who finished inside the top 10 and ties. PGA TOUR AUSTRALASIA | Webex Players Series - Hunter Valley Titleist Brand Ambassador Daniel Gale holed a 10-foot birdie putt on the 72nd green to earn his second PGA Tour Australasia victory of the season. Gale, 27, trusted his Pro V1x golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment to post a final round 66 and reach 19 under par for the week, good for a one-shot win. Titleist Brand Ambassador and last week’s PGA Tour Australasia champion Kazuma Kobori (Pro V1x) placed third this week, shooting a final round 65 and finishing two strokes behind Gale.

I'm 64, unathletic, have taken one golf lesson (with more planned), and can get the ball off the T maybe 2/3rds of the time, so far. According to the machine at Roger Dunn by ball speed with a 7-iron is only 100 mph :( Nevertheless, I want to buy a full set of Titleist clubs now. Which series irons, woods, and driver do I want? Also, do I want graphite, or steel? Please don't tell me Senior flex as I'm not ready to accept it yet. Thank you,

PGA TOUR | WM Phoenix Open After opening the week with a course-record 60, Nick Taylor (Pro V1x) made three consecutive birdies with the tournament on the line Sunday to win his fourth PGA TOUR title. Each of those birdies came on TPC Scottsdale’s par-4 18th. The first one, Taylor’s 72nd hole, forced an all- Pro V1x golf ball playoff with Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman at 21 under. Both players birdied the playoff opener, setting up Taylor’s clinching birdie on the second extra hole. Taylor, who draws a blue line on his Pro V1x to help with alignment on his putts, rolled it in from 11 feet, 5 inches for the win. Including the playoff, Taylor’s Pro V1x golf ball found the bottom of the cup for 26 birdies. Eleven of those came during his bogey-free first round, which he played in 29-31. Taylor was in complete control of his Pro V1x throughout the week in Scottsdale, gaining more than five shots on the field on approach shots (+5.114/9th), while getting up-and-down on 12 of 13 attempts (92.31%), including a perfect 2-for-2 on sand saves. He hit 61 greens in regulation, ranking T2 for the event. SIX WINS IN A ROW FOR TITLEIST GOLF BALL PLAYERS TO START 2024 SEASON Titleist golf ball players have won every event to start the 2024 PGA TOUR season, with three wins each apiece for Pro V1 and Pro V1x : The Sentry: Pro V1x player Sony Open: Grayson Murray (Pro V1) The American Express: Pro V1 player Farmers Insurance Open: Matthieu Pavon (Pro V1) AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Wyndham Clark (Pro V1x) WM Phoenix Open: Nick Taylor (Pro V1x) This week, Taylor also topped a leader board that featured four Titleist golf ball players in the final top 5: 1. Nick Taylor (Pro V1x) 2. Charley Hoffman (Pro V1x) T3. 2022 Masters Champion (Pro V1) 5. Sahith Theegala (Pro V1) Over the last six weeks on the PGA TOUR, a total of 507 players have teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, more than five times the nearest competitor (95). WHY NICK TAYLOR PLAYS PRO V1 x “The windows, we talk about flight windows, but also spin windows. Like any golfer, you want predictability not only your good shots, but your slight miss hits and misses. So the windows of my spin are super tight and like I said, the flight windows that you want – the low ones, if it's a knockdown shot or into the wind, the high ones with certain shots you might need to get to a pin or not – when I look up, I see in the window that I’ve imagined when I was trying to hit it, so that's super important.” “I have so much confidence in the Titleist golf ball, I am not really ever questioning it. When you’re in trouble and you have to hit through a 3 foot by 3 foot circle in a tree, that's when you have the confidence in the back of your mind that, you know, I envision this with a 7 iron and you think it's going to come out of that window – that's telling in itself right there. It's nice to have the windows, when you're on a tee box with nothing in the way, but when you get in trouble, which we do on occasion, it’s important to have that confidence.” “To me (with Pro V1x) it's a soft but clicky feel. It's obviously two opposites there, but it gives me the variety of clickiness with the wedges that I feel like it's getting the spin, but also with the really short shots I have the soft feel. And then with the irons and the woods, obviously it comes off kind of somewhere in the middle there. So the feel is important. It gives you confidence when it comes off the face, kind of again, the feel that you want.” HOW NICK TAYLOR MARKS HIS PRO V1 x “I've always used blue for a long time. I'll change up occasionally, but I put a C and an H by the numbers on both sides. C is for Charlie, it's my son and Harper's my daughter. My daughter's 9 months old, so I had just a C for four years. I used to do a circle abbreviated to a C when my son was born and then did the C-H when she was born in May.” “I use this to line up on 99 percent of my putts. I've used this line on really any putt from distance, 3 feet all the way up to 72 feet like the Canadian Open. Again, it gives me a general area of where I'm trying to aim, gets me tighter and it gets me just focused on speed. I feel like once I have the line down, I’m not really considered or worried about where I'm aiming, so I use a line in all putts.” What’s in the Bag? | Charley Hoffman Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1x Driver: TSR2 8.0° | Tensei 1K Pro Orange 50 TX Fairway Metal: TSR2+ 14.5° | Tensei CK Pro Orange 80 TX and TSR3 18.0° | Tensei CK Pro Orange 80 TX Hybrid: 913Hd 20.0° | Motore Speeder HB 9.8 Tour Spec X Irons: NEW T100 5-9 | NS Pro Modus3 Tour 105 X Wedges: NEW Vokey Design SM10 46.10F, 50.12F, 56.14F, WedgeWorks 60L | NS Pro Modus3 Tour 105 X (46, 52); NS Pro Modus3 125 Wedge (56); Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 (60) Putter: Scotty Cameron Phantom X 8 tour prototype KORN FERRY TOUR | Astara Golf Championship Kevin Velo (Pro V1) made three straight birdies to close out his first career Korn Ferry Tour victory in extra holes. Velo, 26, birdied the par-4 17th and par-5 18th to post 22 under and force a sudden-death playoff with Brian Campbell (Pro V1x) . One more birdie down the 18th gave Velo the win in his 30th career KFT start. For the week in Bogota, Velo carded four sub-67 rounds (64-67-64-66) and made 25 birdies (T2 in the field). Velo and Campbell’s 72-hole scores of 261 (22 under) apiece set the new tournament scoring record. After prevailing in the playoff, Velo is projected to jump 47 spots to No. 2 in the Korn Ferry Points List. CRISTOBAL DEL SOLAR SHOOTS LOWEST ROUND IN PGA TOUR-SANCTIONED HISTORY Cristobal Del Solar tapped in his Pro V1x for par and a 13-under 57 in Round 1, making history by carding the lowest round ever in a PGA TOUR-sanctioned event. Del Solar made six birdies in his first eight holes before making an eagle on No. 9 to go out in 27. He added three more birdies and an eagle on his way in to finish off the historic round. Del Solar began the 2023 Korn Ferry Tour season playing a competitive golf ball brand. In late May at the AdventHealth Championship, Del Solar made a mid-season move to Titleist, switching to a Pro V1x Left Dash . Two months later, Del Solar worked with Jeff Beyers of Titleist Golf Ball R&D , looking for more spin at the bottom end of his bag. He moved to 2023 Pro V1x at the Price Cutter Championship and went on to record his then-best finish on the Korn Ferry Tour – a solo 5th at the NV5 Invitational – in his next start. “Cristobal really liked Left Dash but we thought he could benefit from a little bit more spin with his short irons and wedges,” Beyers said. “He tried 2023 Pro V1x and it was a pretty easy change for him. The numbers were great. He played really well, made a late season push to get his TOUR card and now he’s off to a great start this year.” 2023 Pro V1x is engineered with a high gradient dual core design that delivers lower long game spin for increased distance and a more consistent flight – helping golfers hit the ball longer and straighter while maintaining the Drop-and-Stop greenside control that Pro V1x players rely on to play their best. POTGIETER BECOMES YOUNGEST PLAYER TO SHOOT 59 Titleist Brand Ambassador A ldrich Potgieter became the youngest player to break 60 in a PGA TOUR-sanctioned event after carding a 59 in Round 2. Potgieter, 19, birdied his final three holes (Nos. 7-9 at Country Club de Bogota – Pacos) to post 11 under on his Friday round. He ended the day with 10 birdies and an eagle. Just two weeks ago, Potgieter became the youngest champion in Korn Ferry Tour history, as he claimed the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic. He gamed his Pro V1x golf ball and 14 Titleist clubs in accomplishing both feats.

Kobori, who is just months into his professional career, trusted his Pro V1x golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment to card a final round 66 and post 24 under for the week, good for a one-shot win. Before turning professional in late 2023, Kobori captured the Western Amateur, the Australian Amateur, the individual title at the World Amateur Team Championship and the Elite Amateur Series Cup. He also recorded top-10 finishes at the North and South Amateur, the Trans-Mississippi Amateur and the Southern Amateur. Including his three professional victories, the 22-year-old has finished inside the top-10 six times in nine starts since turning pro.

The 2024 WM Phoenix Open is underway at TPC Scottsdale this week, just months after Team Titleist members took on the Stadium Course as part of the 2023 Team Titleist Invitational. Our loyal brand fans not only had the chance to walk in the same footsteps as TOUR players, but they got to meet one too—along with a handful of world-class Titleist brand experiences. Nothing caps off a good year like a party. The venue for Team Titleist? Hole #16 at TPC Stadium Course. The cause for celebration? Introducing the next generation of the ProV1 and ProV1x golf balls, launching new T-Series Irons , and premiering the We Go Farther docuseries to name a few. And if anyone knows how celebrate the latest and greatest equipment from Titleist, it’s Team Titleist members. This vibrant community loves golf and it's always a fun challenge delivering an experience that meets their high expectations: DraftKings Welcome Reception This brand-spanking-new venue was the perfect location to welcome Team Titleist to Scottsdale. We enjoyed Thursday Night Football, delicious food, and last but not least, the famed Team Titleist Invitational Tee Gift. DAY 1 The celebration continued the next morning with 18 holes at The Champions Course at TPC Scottsdale. Members were greeted with surprise T-Series pouches staged on each golf cart, providing a little insight into the afternoon activities. After finishing the desert course, attendees were treated to special guests from Titleist’s R&D and Clubs Team, along with up- and-coming TOUR prospect, Joe Highsmith . Highsmith demonstrated the impact of dimple patterns on ball flight by striking no-dimple, half-dimple, and inconsistent dimple golf balls. Following this aerodynamics lesson, Highsmith displayed his consistent swing, providing Team Titleist with a clear view of the performance variations when switching between T-100, T-200, T-300, and U505 iron heads. The group wrapped up the day with a quick hitting session on the range with the newest T-Series Irons to try for themselves. Day 2 The morning was buzzing with excitement as Team Titleist Members prepared to play one of the most famous Par 3’s on TOUR. Anticipation only grew upon arrival as we overlooked the nearly completed grandstands and perfectly manicured fairways, which set the stage for an extraordinary day. White Box Testing For the past few weeks, Titleist white boxes have been finding their way onto the doorsteps of Team Titleist Players across the globe. As this player validation process gets underway, we wanted to give our 2023 TTI attendees a little sneak peek and a chance to test this new ball, so we surprised every player with a dozen of this test model. As we teed off, the distant hum of activity intrigued us, but the mystery would have to wait until we reached the iconic #16. While the source of the noise wasn't the typical cheers or boos echoing from the stands, it was a close second. The atmosphere was electric, courtesy of a DJ booth belting out lively tunes, and a professional photographer to capture this one-of-a-kind experience. For our post-round activity, we delved into a clinic with Parker McLauchlin, the Short Game Chef. Drawing on his PGA T OUR experience, Parker shared insights and tips, focusing on bunker play and showcasing different Vokey Wedge bounce and grinds. After a comprehensive session in the sand, members had a chance to hit a few wedges themselves before closing out the evening with our last gathering. DraftKings Closing Ceremonies As the day came to close, we had once last surprise for Team Titleist at our closing reception at DraftKings Sportsbook. In the spirit of the holidays and the cooler temperatures ahead, everyone walked away with a glass TT Ornament and a mug. We announced our raffle winners who were lucky enough to score so epic prizes including a Year Supply of #1 Ball in Golf , LINKSLEGEND Golf Bag, Set of T-Series Irons and much more. A huge thanks to our friends at TPC Scottsdale for going above and beyond! Our gratitude extends to each and every Team Titleist Member for bringing your enthusiasm and love of golf. We look forward to gathering once again next year for another round of shared joy and unforgettable moments. Thank you for making this event truly special! You might be wondering how these Team Titleist members were selected to join the festivities. As always, keeping an  up-to-date Team Titleist profile , and participating in our  discussion boards ,   fittings , and  events ,  are great ways to increase your chances to participate in exclusive opportunities. ... #TeamTitleist

Hey everyone, in a pickle here, thinking of getting fitted to some new irons some time this year. Currently using some ryobi bladed irons, rly rly old, passed down from my uncle, honestly dont really love much about it, flex, swing weight, everything feels off. Especially comparing it to my driver (tsr3) and 5 wood (cobra speedzone tour), which i got myself. Makes me really want to change irons this year but then again next year Titleist would be releasing new irons, i believe its the end of the t series line ( 3 generations already) anyone got some tips or advice for me?

LPGA TOUR | Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions Longtime Titleist golf ball player Lydia Ko opened the 2024 season with a decisive victory against the LPGA’s best, posting a final-round 70 to close out a two-shot victory. In full control of her Pro V1x+ prototype golf ball, Ko took control of the tournament with bogey-free rounds on Friday and Saturday, playing those 36 holes in 9 under while hitting 32 greens in regulation (89%). It marked the 20th LPGA title for Ko, who is now 1 point away from the LPGA's Hall of Fame qualification. KO’S RUN CONTINUES WITH PRO V1 x+ Last August, Lydia Ko made the move to the prototype Pro V1x+ golf ball, putting the model in play for the first time at the Portland Classic following some work with Titleist Golf Ball R&D rep Jeff Beyers . According to Beyers, Ko liked the added spin with her short irons and wedges she saw while testing Pro V1x+. While the vast majority of Titleist golf balls in play across the worldwide professional tours are either a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, some players choose to play custom performance options (CPO’s) – such as Pro V1x Left Dash, Pro V1 Left Dot and Pro V1x+. These CPO’s are designed to fit players with very unique launch conditions as well as evaluate forward looking technologies. Ko has played the ball ever since, and is a cumulative 60 under in those last eight events, including this week’s victory. In addition, her team won the Grant Thorton Invitational in December. “I’ve used the Titleist ball for a really long time and I can speak from my experience that every time I’ve tried something new I’ve been able to see a difference, and I just love how it is the #1 golf ball,” Ko said. “It’s not just an advertisement. It is something that I believe and something that I really trust. The golf ball is such a crucial part of the equipment standpoint and in the game.” PANO FINISHES RUNNER-UP IN FIRST WEEK WITH NEW T100 IRONS, SM10 WEDGES Titleist Brand Ambassador Alexa Pano began her sophomore season on the LPGA Tour with a solo second-place finish, birdieing three of her final five holes to post 12 under and finish two back of Lydia Ko . Pano plays a Pro V1 golf ball and 14 Titleist clubs, nine of which she gamed for the first time this week in Orlando. Pano, who finished the week 1st in Birdies (19), added a set of NEW T100 5-9 irons along with four NEW Vokey Design SM10 wedges (46.10F, 50.12F, 54.14F, 58.12D) over the offseason. She also led the field in Putts Per GIR (1.69) with her Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 tour prototype putter. What’s in the Bag? | Alexa Pano Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1 golf ball Driver: TSR3 8.0° | Mitsubishi Diamana PD 50 S Fairway Metals: TSR3 13.5° | Mitsubishi Diamana PD 60 S, TSR3 18.0° | Mitsubishi Diamana PD 70 S, and TSR3 21.0°| Mitsubishi Tensei CK 70 Irons: NEW T100 5-9 | Nippon NS Pro 950GH R Wedges: NEW Vokey Design SM10 46.10, 50.12F, 54.14F, 58.12D | Nippon NS Pro 950GH R Putter : Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 tour prototype putter PANO ON HER PRO V1 “The spin on this ball gives me a lot of confidence around the greens and hitting shots in, I can really predict what I want to do and [it’s] just a very reliable golf ball. If I want to stick something, I can do that. If I want to get the rollout, I can still do that, and [Pro V1] just kind of gives me the freedom to play golf. I know my golf ball is going to do what I need it to.” “I think before I turned pro, I definitely tested a few different balls and just nothing has the consistency that a Pro V does for me. Trying to get those different ball flights, whether it’s lower with my wedges or going high, but you still, when you’re hitting it high, you still want to see a bit of a drive to it. You don't just want to see it floating. And that's really the main reason I've always stuck with the Pro V1.” “I'm a massive feel player. Almost everything I do is feel. I’m not super big on the technological side, and [Pro V1] has always just had a great feel for me. I love the way that it comes off the club. I love the way that I see it react on the greens and yeah, I have a really good feel with this.” PANO ON HER TSR3 DRIVER “This is one of my favorite clubs in my bag. The TSR has been pretty game changing for me... Getting my driver to be a massive asset for me versus something that I was trying to control. It’s given me some strokes gained and yeah, I love it. I really love the look of this driver... the face angles on all my clubs for me are one of the biggest thing, being a big feel player, a visual is big for me. And just looking down at this, I love the way it sits on the ground and makes me feel before every drive that I hit.” PANO ON HER NEW T100 IRONS “I’ve just recently, this offseason, switched into the new T100. I went out to visit Chloe [Robinson, Titleist Technical Player Relations Representative] in California and she helped me get fit for these.” “Feel is probably the biggest part of my golf game. I think feeling the club through the turf is massive for me.... I really like these irons specifically because they pierce the ground really well.” “A good feeling [at impact] is important, but also the visual aspect of seeing kind of the thinner [topline] goes hand-in-hand with my feel. If I feel good over a club, looking down at the face angle, it really shows when I swing. Face angle is massive for me in every club in the bag. PANO ON TESTING HER SM10 WEDGES “Love the look of them, which is no surprise. I always love the look of a Vokey, but they feel super good so far. ... I think my favorite part about hitting [SM10] was hitting some of those full pitching wedges on the range. I do like to play kind of a right-to-left ball flight and when you start trying to get it up to its furthest distance is when you can see the turn kind of get to its maximum. And seeing a little bit more control [with SM10] was somethingthat’sreally big for me.” PANO ON HER PHANTOM X 5.5 PUTTER “I got this putter last offseason when I went up for a visit at the Scotty Cameron studio and Paul [Vizanko] wanted to fit me for a mallet, even though I’ve always been kind of a blade putter most of my life. And I was set on using one of the two blades that we got fit for that day, but he made me take this. He’s like, ‘you never know what’s going to happen.’ And I was really struggling with my putting the first half of this year. It was just not solid, not consistent at all. I was losing a lot of shots. So finally,just kind of got to a point where I was like, alright, we need to switch something up. So I switched over to this mallet and it’s the reason I’m a winner on the LPGA tour now. It’s been such a massive help. I jumped up so high in the putting ranks. I was really low at some point this year and it’s given me a lot of confidence around the greens. And now it’sprobably my favorite club in the bag.” www.youtube.com/watch PGA TOUR | The American Express Making PGA TOUR history, the 20-year-old amateur champion of The American Express trusted his Pro V1 golf ball to shoot 29 under par in the desert and win by one shot. The champion made two birdies over his final four holes Sunday at PGA West’s Stadium Course to post a closing 2-under 70, getting his Pro V1 up and down for par from just over 78 feet on the par-4 18th to etch his name in the history books. The college sophomore has played the 2023 Pro V1 model since the start of his freshman season, winning his first collegiate tournament last March before making a summer run that included victories at the Northeast Amateur, North & South Amateur and the U.S. Amateur Championship. On Saturday at La Quinta Country Club, he tied the lowest round by an amateur in PGA Tour history, shooting a 12-under 60 to take a three-shot lead into the final round. PRO V1 & PRO V1 x : THREE IN A ROW TO START 2024 With Sunday’s victory at The American Express, Titleist golf ball players have now won each of the first three events to start the 2024 PGA TOUR season. Grayson Murray won last week’s Sony Open in a playoff with his Pro V1 , while the winner of The Sentry played Pro V1x . Over the last three weeks on the PGA TOUR, a total of 252 players have teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, more than five times the nearest competitor (44). JUSTIN THOMAS MOVES TO 2023 PRO V1 x Following extensive off-season testing, longtime Pro V1x player Justin Thomas made the move to the 2023 Pro V1x from the prior generation model, teeing it up in competition for the first time at the 2023 Hero World Challenge. Said Thomas: “All of us want consistency. Whether the wind be down, left-to-right, right-to-left, into. If I'm hitting my numbers, I want [the golf ball] to time and time again be able to have that consistent spin, trajectory, to where I’m not missing numbers by four and five [yards] with what I felt like was a good swing. And I felt like Bahamas was a great time to test it. And yeah, it was awesome.” “I had a couple of irons into the wind that I could tell [the difference between models]. Some 7 irons that I felt were ‘you know, I’m not sure I can quite get this there, but I just got to put a good solid swing on it.’ And just how [the shots] maintained the trajectory and they weren’t ballooning – but with the land angle, now they’re still going to be coming down soft enough when the greens are firm. There was a couple of times there in that first round where the wind would pick up, and I felt like I was able to either hold it against winds or keep it flighted into the wind that I had felt good about the change.” Thomas posted 16 under for the week in the Bahamas, good for a solo 3rd finish. When he arrived to PGA West this week to make his first PGA TOUR start of the 2024 season, ‘23 Pro V1x remained in the bag. “I texted Fordie [Pitts, Director of Tour Research and Validation for Titleist Golf Ball R&D], I said, ‘Well, I think we have a winner 23X,’ ” Thomas said. "Yeah, it checked all the boxes, and I was very pleased.” In his 2024 season debut at the Amex, Thomas posted four rounds of 68 or better to finish T3 at 27 under. On Saturday, he posted a course record-tying 11-under 61, in which he gained over three shots (+3.153) with his approach play and was a perfect 5-for-5 in scrambling around PGA West’s Stadium Course. VOKEY SM10 IS MOST PLAYED WEDGE AT AMERICAN EXPRESS The tour launch of the NEW Vokey Design SM10 wedges continued this week at the American Express, with Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill on site and back behind his grinding wheel on the Titleist Tour Truck. When players teed off on Thursday, there were 251 Vokey Design gap, sand and lob wedges in play, more than all other brands combined (55%): SM10 was the most played wedge model, with 135 gap, sand and lob wedges in play (29%), more than double the nearest competitor. Thirty-nine players put at least one new Vokey SM10 wedge in the bag for the first time, and four of the players finishing inside the top-10 gamed at least one SM10 wedge, including Justin Thomas (46.10F, 52.12F, 56.14F, 60.04T), the 2020 Men’s Olympic Gold Medalist (56.10S, WedgeWorks 60.06K) and the 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play champ (56.14F, 60.04T). More than 100 players on the PGA TOUR and DP World Tour that have already played new SM10’s in competition since the new models first appeared at The Sentry.

Paul, playing a Pro V1x golf ball, TSR3 driver, T-Series irons and SM9 wedges among his Titleist setup, carded three straight rounds of 67 in rounds 2-4 to finish at 17 under and earn his first career KFT victory. Kevin Roy (Pro V1) finished one shot back of Paul’s winning number, and Ross Steelman (Pro V1x Left Dash) finished solo third at 15 under.

As we all know, the year on year model exchange becomes overwhelming for many. With the likes of cally, TM, and now the miz's, Pings, etc of the world, the golf equipment world has become flat out overwhelming. But I suggest, newer isn't always better... or is It? I bought the T-100s when they came out with the second iteration. I was sold the minute I hit them and experienced their feel. They certainly surpassed what I had been playing (miz and cally irons previously) by all measurable ways, at least for me. I was sold on them so much so I swore off buying another iron until I wore them out!! But, sometimes, you realize... Things said in haste are frankly just silly and not always hard and fast. Fast forward to this week. I went to the 2nd swing store just to play around. Of course, that often ends up in me coming home with something I hadn't planned. In this case, the same ole same held true. I tried out a essentially brand new set of T150's and was instantly in love. While I was steadfast in my stance that I wasn't going to upgrade, that was all for not. I hit these things and was IMMEDIATELY sold. These harken back to the AP2 irons in every sense, but I think far more playable. So, out the window went my hard stance, and in the bag the new clubs clattered. Like every "purchase" I make at said establishment goes, I drove all the way home (1.5 hours from me) and had those mental second guessing type moments. Well, in the north east (PA) we got snow today. But the tried and true Members group showed up at the course and went off at 7 in the freezing cold 3.5 hours before the snow was suppose to hit us. We got all 18 in. Fresh in the bag and essentially hit every iron exactly how I wanted too. Fades, Draws, Low, High..... You name it, it was happening. These irons were absolutely confidence inspiring and capable of doing everything I wanted and then some. AND, they were LONG still even in the cold. So, I suppose the question, or mini little saga I put above, comes down to... We often try to talk ourselves out of upgrading. But has ANYONE else found that the new series of T irons to be a VAST leap forward rather than a small nudge forward? I think they are, frankly. Monumental, I mean. I could do all of the things with the last model, but these just seemed like dummy sticks to me that made it all very easy. Anyone else have thoughts on this? P.s. In the modern age, I have to say what draws me too and keeps me with Team Titleist is the fact that they don't just roll new crap out every year and that they put HIGH quality stuff out each time. I can't say that I've seen that in the other OEM's. Truly, I don't think I could ever imagine myself playing a different brand in many of the clubs in the bag. Thanks for reading my ramblings, if the mods put this thread up. Hope to hear from you!

Have gamed both CP-01 and 03. Switched to 03 for less offset as my miss is usually left and I found the 01s a little too easy to turn over. Thinking of a new set next season and wondering which of the new T series irons most closely resembles the CP-03s. Offset numbers don’t seem to be published. Looks wise the T200 seem to be a match but wondering about offset specs for both those and 150s. Thanks!

www.youtube.com/watch Our friends at the Chasing Scratch Podcast recently took a couples trip out to the West Coast and just so happened to be vacationing near the Titleist Performance Institute in Oceanside, California. Naturally, we had to have Mike and Eli come by and work with J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, Titleist’s Director of Player Promotions, to find which T-Series irons will help take their games to the next level. Just as with every Titleist Fitting, we focused on dialing in the distance , dispersion and descent angle across their bags. This 3D approach allows for more confidence than ever when taking aim at the pin because, after all, a golf club fitting is so much more than determining specs – it’s about learning which shots one needs and finding the right clubs to hit those shots.

Hi all, I am looking to update my irons from AP2s to the T series irons. Unfortunately for me, the nearest fitting centre is some 2.5hours away at Craigelaw GC. Where I live we have Titleist stockist, I’ve tried the irons albeit briefly, and according to these stockist I can be in any of the sets very quickly! BUT…. I really would like the full fitting experience, I would love to pick the brains of loyal TT fanatics and delve deeper into my bag. I am a 6 handicap and play on a links course and enjoy sampling other courses when I can. Thank you. www.titleist.com/.../awvutyqkjwtqy79r8nkl

LPGA Tour | Maybank Championship Ending a marathon nine-hole playoff, Celine Boutier stuck her Pro V1x golf ball to six feet and rolled in the birdie to earn her fourth LPGA win of the season and move to the top of the Rolex Player of the Year standings.

DP World Tour | Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters Adrian Meronk (Pro V1) followed a pair of front-nine eagles with a 4-under closing 9, including a birdie on the par-3 17th, to clinch the one-shot victory at Real Club de Golf Sotogrande. The 30-year-old Meronk posted a pair of 6-under 66’s over the weekend in Spain to earn his third DP World Tour title of the season, while leading a 1-through-8 finish for Titleist golf ball players: Matti Schmid (Pro V1) , Richard Mansell (Pro V1) , Louis De Jager (Pro V1 ), Chase Hanna (Pro V1) , Jeff Winther (Pro V1x) , Jeong weon Ko (Pro V1x) , Marcel Siem (Pro V1) . MERONK ON HIS PRO V1 Adrian Meronk has now won four times on the DP World Tour since making the move to Pro V1 at the start of 2022. Previously a Pro V1x player, Meronk found during testing that the flatter trajectory of Pro V1 gave him more control on approach shots, while delivering the optimal amount of spin into and around the green. “I feel like I can control my irons and the shots into the wind much better and it doesn’t spin as much. So I think that was the main key for me,” Meronk said. “And also with the wedges, I can play low trajectory shots that just skip on the green and one hop and stop.” “Just consistent feel off the face and how it reacts on the green. Just a consistent spin as well,” Meronk said about Pro V1 in the short game. “I like to see the shots going quite low, a lot of spin. So with the Pro V1, it was quite consistent for me.” AMATEUR | World Amateur Team Championship The United States captured the World Amateur Team Championship for the first time since 2014, outpacing second place by 11 shots. Each of the three U.S. team members – Gordon Sargent , the 2023 U.S. Amateur Champion (Pro V1) and the 2023 Jones Cup Champion (Pro V1x Left Dash) – finished in the top 5 individually, with the U.S. Am champ taking home solo 2nd place at 15 under. The all-Titleist golf ball trio are the first Americans to win a Walker Cup and a World Amateur Team Championship in the same year since Justin Thomas . Both Sargent and the 2023 Jones Cup winner gamed an all-Titleist setup, including TSR2 drivers, NEW T-Series utilities, Vokey Design SM9 wedges and Scotty Cameron putters. In addition, the individual champion – also the winner of this summer's Western Amateur – played a Pro V1x golf ball, TSR3 driver and full bag of Titleist equipment.

SARGENT EARNS PGA TOUR CARD Titleist Brand Ambassador Gordon Sargent made history this week, becoming the first player to secure a PGA TOUR card through PGA TOUR University Accelerated. The program offers collegiate players the opportunity to earn a TOUR card by earning 20 points by the end of their third year of NCAA eligibility, and points are distributed based on accomplishments in collegiate, amateur or professional tournament play. Sargent’s start this week at the World Amateur Team Championship officially earned him his 20th point. Sargent, 20, had a summer to remember in 2023, beginning with Low Amateur honors at the U.S. Open at the Los Angeles Country Club and ending with a come-from-behind U.S. Walker Cup victory at St. Andrews. The Vanderbilt standout led the U.S. team in points, going 4-0 in his matches and becoming just the 19th player in history to do so at the Walker Cup. While Sargent is the first player to secure TOUR membership through the recently developed program, only three players since 2010 would have secured their card by reaching the 20-point threshold: Patrick Cantlay , Justin Thomas and Patrick Rodgers .

PGA TOUR | Shriners Children’s Open Titleist Brand Ambassador Tom Kim made it back-to-back victories in Las Vegas, playing the weekend in a field-best 14 under par to win by one shot. The 21-year-old Kim – playing a Pro V1x golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment , including TSR3 driver, NEW T100 irons, Vokey Design SM9 wedges and Scotty Cameron putter – followed a third-round 9-under 62 with a closing 66 Sunday at TPC Summerlin to capture his third PGA TOUR title.

For me, when I hit a shot, and it comes in the window that I see it… just that consistency of seeing that window every time, where a lot of [competitive] golf balls, sometimes you might hit a shot, and it might go a little far, it might go a little short. With Titleist being the best ball, number one in golf, it shows you that consistency.” “(With Pro V1x) I feel like I can get a little bit more height with it. I can control the spin a little bit more with my irons and with the driver, going from low flight to high flight.” “I think the big thing is obviously the window, but for me also, it's the sound off of the club head and the feel. I’m a little sensitive with a little bit of sound, and I feel like it determines almost the shot that I hit because I have to be used to the sound of when it makes impact. I want to hear that ball coming off the face. But once I hear good sound, good feel, and I see my window, I’m all set to go.” KIM ON HIS TSR3 DRIVER No one hit more fairways on Sunday at TPC Summerlin than Tom Kim . On the 18th hole, Kim pulled his TSR3 9.0° driver and sent his Pro V1x 318 yards down the middle of the fairway to help close out the victory. Kim hit 12 of 14 fairways (86%, T1) in Round 4. He ranks seventh this season on TOUR in Driving Accuracy (67.5%). “I had been playing the TSi3 for the longest time and I thought I wasn’t going to change it, but after trying it at TPI (in the summer of 2022), it was just so good that I had to put it in the bag, and it’s been working out really well,” Kim said. “My percentage in the fairway has gone up and, yeah, it’s a keeper. Missed hits, solid hits, it just stays in the wind so well for me, that’s what I’ve had trouble with before and I thought I was going to use the ‘i’ for the rest of the season, but I put it right in the bag because I gained ball speed, gained swing speed, smash factor went up and holds it really well into the wind. So it was great.” KIM’S MOVE TO NEW T-SERIES IRONS www.youtube.com/watch Gaming his NEW T100 4-9 irons as well as a NEW T200 3 iron (utility build), Tom Kim gained over seven shots (+7.406) on his approach shots this week at TPC Summerlin. He ranks 10th in SG: Approach for the 2022-23 season, averaging +0.656 per round. Kim moved into his NEW T-Series models ahead of the 2023 U.S. Open at the Los Angeles Country Club and earned his best career major championship finish to date that week (T8). One month later at Royal Liverpool, Kim bettered that result by finishing T2. “The feel was just so much better,” said Kim on his first impressions of the new models. “And to be honest, I’ve gone through three sets of T100s, and every time I hit the new ones, I kind of question, ‘Man, can it get any better?’ And for some reason it does.” Kim on the NEW T200 utilities: “The sound just completely changed, especially, not when you hit it good, but the mishits, the sound was really similar to the solid ones.” KIM ROLLING WITH SCOTTY CAMERON PUTTER Kim had it rolling this week in Vegas, gaining over five strokes on the field (+5.740, 4th) with his Scotty Cameron TourType Timeless GSS tour prototype. He also ranked T6 in putts per GIR (1.63). “I play a GSS TT (TourType) blade,” Kim said this week via PGA TOUR social channels. “I have a dot on the top and a line on the bottom. I’ve played this putter for more than a year now. I think my first week with this putter was at the Presidents Cup last year, worked pretty well so it’s been in the bag for a long time, and it doesn’t plan to leave any time soon.” LPGA Tour | Buick LPGA Shanghai Angel Yin rolled in her Pro V1 for birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win her first LPGA title. Yin posted rounds of 65-70 over the weekend to reach 14 under for the tournament, matching the clubhouse lead posted by world No. 1 Lilia Vu (Pro V1x) . Yin and Vu, who had previously faced one another in a playoff at the Chevron Championship in April, both hit the fairway and green in regulation on the first extra hole before Yin converted her winning birdie. Yin was in complete control of her Pro V1 this week, hitting 41 of 56 fairways (73%) and 62 of 72 greens in regulation (86%). DP WORLD TOUR | acciona Open de España Matthieu Pavon (Pro V1) shot rounds of 63-68-66-64 to earn his first career DP World Tour title in wire-to-wire fashion. Pavon, 31, made seven Sunday birdies to separate from the chasing pack and post 23 under, giving him a four-shot margin of victory. The Frenchman gained nearly two shots on the field tee-to-green (+1.96) and ranked first in Strokes Gained: Around the Green (+1.34). PAVON ON HIS PRO V1 “I have played Titleist since I was very young, it has always been my favorite golf ball brand. I currently play with the Pro V1 model as it is best suited for my game, generating the right amount of spin with the driver, which allows for a strong, penetrating ball flight in the wind and overall great control. I also like it because it has a soft feel when chipping around the greens, so it is a ball that really does do it all.” KPGA | Genesis Championship Titleist Brand Ambassador Sanghyun Park emerged victorious from a sudden-death playoff, draining an eagle putt on the second extra hole for the win. Park, gaming his Pro V1 golf ball and TSR3 driver among his all-Titleist setup, posted 17 under for the week, which was matched by fellow Brand Ambassador Sungjae Im . Park’s victory – the 12th of his career – earns him an exemption into the 2024 Genesis Scottish Open at Renaissance Club. Titleist was the #1 ball and most played driver , iron and wedge for the week, and Titleist golf ball players made up seven of the top 11 positions on Sunday’s final leader board.

What is a Titleist fitting studio and what is the difference between a Titleist fitting studio vs preferred fitter vs fitting event on a driving range? Getting fitted for the first time ever at CC next week and I’m currently playing Titleist AP2 714’s and I’m excited to see the difference in the new T-series irons. After researching and reading as much as I have, I’m worried about my gaping with the lofts being stronger in the new T series vs my AP2’s because I don’t necessarily more distance. I’m might be overthinking it but concerned about hitting off a mat and everything being based off of their launch monitors instead of seeing my actual ball flight. Is getting fitted at a place like club champion worth getting fitted at or should I wait for a spot to open at a Titleist fitting studio? Any input and recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I had a fitting yesterday with my local fitter Robert Orourke here in Napa. I was unable to make it to my Club's fitting so I scheduled a private one with him at a local course for yesterday. My main goal was to check out the new T Series offerings and walked away with a whole new set. I absolutely LOVE the shaft he fit me into, Project X IO 6.0 and it works well with the new Iron set. I landed on PW - 6i in T150 and a T200 5i with better ball speed and launch angel across the board. The nicest thing however is the new order process, Robert was able to push the order through my club and still retain my fitting credit. Last year when I was fit in the same situation with Robert for the TSr's I had to purchase a club from him so I didn't loose my fitting credit.

Had my second hole in one today on Hole Nr 13 playing 144 yards at Virginia Beach National. I used my new Titleist T Series 350 7 iron and Pro V 1 ball. I will be 67 next week and fitted for these irons, played them for 30 days, increased my distance with minimal dispersion. Exceptional clubs. Looking forward to playing again tomorrow, thanks Titleist www.titleist.com/.../cg3lyh2zqeh2cvd73epw

www.youtube.com/watch Creating the best-performing irons for every player means understanding and elevating the precise aspects of performance each player needs. Working with Tour Pros and dedicated amateurs, the Titleist team attacks every facet of every T-Series iron – control, distance, flight, forgiveness, looks, sound and feel – to produce irons designed to enhance your play in ways that only a Titleist can. The next generation Titleist T-Series irons family establishes a new standard in iron engineering, reaffirming Titleist’s commitment to creating the world’s best irons while providing golfers with optimized performance options from their shortest to longest iron. The new tour-proven T-Series models – T100 , T150 , T200 and T350 – deliver unrivaled feel with effortless turf interaction in four tour-inspired shapes, each designed to maximize the three dimensions of iron performance: distance control, dispersion control and descent angle. T100 | THE MODERN TOUR IRON www.youtube.com/watch For the better player who is looking for precision control and unrivaled feel from the TOUR’s most played model. Chosen by more touring professionals than any other iron in the world, T100 irons have been in the bags of the world’s best since its introduction in 2019. Players such as Jordan Spieth , Cameron Smith , Justin Thomas , Max Homa , Will Zalatoris , Sungjae Im and Tom Kim are among the many players to trust T100 models in their iron setups. QUOTING MARNI INES, DIRECTOR OF TITLEIST IRONS DEVELOPMENT : “We worked hard to enhance feel and performance in T100. We're still starting with forging, we're still starting with dual cavity construction. However, this has been completely re-engineered. By strengthening the back bar of T100, we were able to carve out material in the heel, toe, and face to save weight. This gives us greater control over CG placement and results in a better feeling, more forgiving iron with tightened dispersion. With the CNC face milling process, now we have a more consistent face, more consistent grooves, which gives you more consistent spin and distance.” T150 | THE FASTER TOUR IRON www.youtube.com/watch For the player who wants the exact precision and feel of T100 with increased speed, distance and forgiveness. Built on the same fully forged platform as T100, T150 is engineered to be faster and longer. Built with 2° stronger lofts compared to T100, T150 now features a more confidence-inspiring shape and improved forgiveness, all while retaining the same blade length and offset measurements as T100 for a true player-preferred look. QUOTING MARNI INES: “The main difference in T150’s construction versus T100 is the Muscle Channel through the back bar, which has been re-engineered. The Muscle Channel has been shifted forward towards the face, and our CG placement with D18 tungsten has allowed us, again, to create tighter distance control for this iron. We also listened to those players that felt as though the shape of T100•S was on the smaller side. With this iron, we took that feedback and increased the topline thickness and widened the sole, which also gave us the ability to drive the CG lower. Whether they’re playing T150 throughout the set or taking advantage of its performance through a blended set, players will get the ball speeds and launches they need throughout the bag with T150.” T200 | THE PLAYERS DISTANCE IRON www.youtube.com/watch For the player who wants added distance and forgiveness without compromising on looks, feel, trajectory or stopping power. Meeting a player-preferred profile with total performance and dramatically enhanced feel, new T200 represents the ultimate tour-proven players distance iron. QUOTING MARNI INES: “When we set out to improve T200, feel was the top priority for the project. Listening to our players’ feedback, we didn't change T200’s shaping. On the inside, everything changed. We re-engineered the chassis and moved the core support bar closer to the center of the face. We also re-designed the flange to which the polymer muscle is attached and altered the thickness of the polymer core. All that went into these changes stemmed from the goal of making T200 feel as good as it looks.” T350 | THE ULTIMATE GAME IMPROVEMENT IRON www.youtube.com/watch For the player who wants high launch, exceptional distance and forgiveness they can count on. High, far and forgiving, T350 is the best performing, best looking and best feeling Game Improvement iron to bear the Titleist script. QUOTING MARNI INES: “The overall construction for T350 represents a massive step forward from the previous generation. We’ve gone from a one-piece cavity back construction to this forged, dual-taper face and hollow-body construction. T350 benefits from a re-vamped Max Impact core support, which we moved closer to the center of the face. The entire chassis has been stiffened, which helps to dampen vibration. We moved from a single tungsten weight to heel/toe tungsten weighting, which gives T350 a bump in MOI. With all these changes, we’ve created a platform that is all-around better performing versus the old model. It’s faster across the face, it flies higher, and it has tighter dispersion.” NOW AVAILABLE FOR FITTINGS The new T-Series irons are now available for fittings in golf shops globally. An authorized Titleist fitter will help determine the best combination of T-Series models to unlock the golfer’s ability to hit the golf ball more consistently closer to the pin. Golfers can find a Titleist fitting location beginning today by visiting https://www.titleist.com/locator?searchtype=fit . ... #TeamTitleist

DP WORLD TOUR | Horizon Irish Open Titleist Brand Ambassador Vincent Norrman played his final 12 holes Sunday in 7 under, storming up the leader board to win by one at the K Club. The 25-year-old, gaming a Pro V1x golf ball and TSR3 driver among his Titleist setup, began the day six shots off the pace before turning in a bogey-free 65 to reach 14 under. From Nos. 7 through 14, he birdied six of the eight holes. “The course got a lot of rain and it was a little soft on the greens. I just tried to go out and be aggressive,” he said. It’s Norrman’s second victory in two months, having earned his first professional victory in July at the Barbasol Championship, co-sanctioned by the PGA TOUR and DP World Tour. For the week in Ireland, Norrman ranked 4th in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (+1.08 per round) and 5th in SG: Tee to Green (+2.22 per round). He hit 75% of his greens and regulation and ranked 9th in Scrambling, getting his Pro V1x up-and-down 72% of the time. What’s in the Bag? | Vincent Norrman Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1x Driver: TSR3 10.0°| Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro White 60 TX Irons: 620 CB 4-5 | True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 and 620 MB 6-PW | True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 Wedges: Vokey Design SM9 50.12F, 54.10S, 60.10S wedges | True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 (50°, 54°), True Tempter Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 (60°) NORRMAN ON HIS PRO V1 x A longtime Pro V1x player, Vincent Norrman prefers the higher flight he gets from X, needing the added height and spin to attack the firm, fast greens on the PGA TOUR. “I prefer the Pro V1x because with my spin I can launch it a little higher and hold the greens a little bit better,” Norrman said earlier this year at The American Express, just one week after making the move to the 2023 model. Norrman finished ninth in greens in regulation (69.76%) this season on the PGA TOUR (2022-23 FedExCup events). He hit over 75% of greens last season on the Korn Ferry Tour while earning his TOUR card. “I’ve played the Pro V1x for as long as I can remember, actually before college, all the way through college and professional,” Norrman said this week at the Irish Open. “It’s something I’m very comfortable with, familiar with, and I actually switched to the new ball (2023 Pro V1x) as well this year. When it came out I saw a little better trajectory with irons, which I really, really, really like. So that was a very easy transition.” Titleist was the most played golf ball at The K Club with 108 players, more than five times the nearest competitor (21), including Norrman and runner-up Hurly Long (Pro V1). NORRMAN ON HIS TSR DRIVER Vincent Norrman was the among the group of 51 players at The K Club who gamed a Titleist driver , the most played driver at the Horizon Irish Open and all season on the DP World Tour. The field’s most popular model, TSR3 , was also the choice of the champ: TSR3 10.0° (Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro White 60 TX), D•1 SureFit hosel setting). Norrman, who was 29th this season on TOUR in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (+0.373) and 14th in Total Driving, put TSR in play the first week it was available last season on the Korn Ferry Tour (Memorial Health Championship). “I play kind of a lighter shaft, 60-something grams, 9.25 loft, so I can kind of generate a lot of speed in there,” Norrman said this week during his Tuesday practice round. “I switched to the TSR as soon as it came out. It felt a little hotter off the face for me. Very similar (look), but it’s like the small things that kind of fit my eye. And it’s helped me a lot to improve my ball-striking off the tee.” Following the breakthrough performance gains of the Titleist Speed Project and the introduction of the TS, TSi and now TSR driver models, Titleist has been the most played driver on the PGA TOUR for five straight seasons. Thirty-two percent of all drivers in play during the 2022-23 FedExCup season were Titleist models, compared to 22% for the nearest competitor. Five of the last seven major championships have been won with a Titleist driver, including the 2023 U.S. Open ( Wyndham Clark ) and the 2023 Open Championship ( Brian Harman ). Five of the top 10 players in the OWGR play a Titleist driver, as well as nine of the top 17. CHAMPIONS TOUR | Ascension Charity Classic Steve Flesch (Pro V1x) posted a final round 62 to win by four shots and claim his fourth career Champions Tour victory. Flesch began Sunday’s final round 6 under through six holes and collected three back-nine birdies to shoot his third consecutive round of 66 or lower (66-66-62) and reach 19 under for the week. He finished T2 in Greens in Regulation (47/54, 87%) and T3 in Scrambling (6/7, 86%). Titleist golf ball players have now won 19 of the 21 events played this season on PGA TOUR Champions. KPGA/JGTO/ASIAN TOUR | Shinhan Donghae Open Titleist Brand Ambassador Guntaek Koh claimed his third KPGA Tour title of 2023, making birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to clinch the victory. Koh – gaming a Pro V1 golf ball, TSR2 driver, NEW T-Series irons and full bag of Titleist equipment – birdied the par-5 18th in regulation to shoot a final round 68 and force extra holes. The 23-year-old then converted a 10-foot birdie putt on his second trip down the 18th to close out his opponent. Said Koh: “The first win this year was the hardest but now I am in the mode and enjoying the experience... A victory in an event on this scale, against the best from the Asian Tour and Japan Tour is simply incredible.” What’s in the Bag? | Guntaek Koh Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1 Driver: TSR2 10.0° Fairway Metal: TSi2 15.0° Utility Iron: NEW T200 3 Irons: NEW T100 3-PW Wedges: Vokey Design SM9 50.08F, 58.08M Putter : Scotty Cameron Newport 2 tour prototype PGA TOUR CANADA | Fortinet Cup Championship Titleist Brand Ambassador Hayden Springer won the PGA TOUR Canada’s season finale, his second victory in three starts, to capture the season-long Fortinet Cup and earn his 2024 Korn Ferry Tour card. Springer, gaming a Pro V1 golf ball, TSR3 driver and NEW T150 irons among his Titleist equipment, followed a second round 9-uner 62 with matching 67’s over the weekend on his way to a five-shot victory. Over the 72 holes, Springer hit all but eight greens in regulation and made 25 birdies along with three eagles.

Li, trusting his Pro V1x golf ball, TSR2 driver and NEW T200 and T100 irons, jumped into the lead on Friday after posting a course record 10-under 62 that featured two eagles and seven birdies. Steady play over the weekend saw him finish on top of a leader board that featured nine Titleist golf balls and seven Titleist drivers among the top 12 finishers.

I’ve never been one to mess with lie angles but during my recent fitting I was told to go 2 degrees flat on my irons. So I order my new T Series irons that way. I am catching the ball in the heel on several clubs and of course the ball is going more to the right. My question is do all the clubs need to have the same lie angle? The only club we checked for lie angle on was the 7 iron. Should I check each club individually?

The PGA TOUR’s 2022-23 FedExCup season began and ended the same way – with a champion retrieving his Titleist from the bottom of the cup. It started last September at the Fortinet Championship, when Max Homa’s Pro V1 travelled 33 feet, from a tight, short-sided lie beneath the 18 th green, spinning into the hole on Silverado Resort & Spa’s closing par-5 for what proved to be a walk-off birdie. twitter.com/.../1571639215594635264 And it came to a close last Sunday , with Viktor Hovland setting up over a 7-foot putt on East Lake’s par-5 18 th , his Pro V1 golf ball marked with a long, black line that he’d directed toward the cup. End over end, Hovland’s Pro V1 dropped in for birdie and a five-shot triumph, officially earning him two new titles: TOUR Champion and FedExCup Champion. twitter.com/.../1695941299332096476 From Max’s magic act to Viktor’s victory lap, there were a total of 47 PGA TOUR events – with more players and more champions putting their trust in Titleist golf balls and equipment than any other brand : – Seventy-two percent of players who played in a PGA TOUR event during the 2022-23 FedExCup season teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, the longstanding and overwhelming choice of the world’s best. And when the world’s best descended on The Los Angeles Country Club this summer, Titleist became the #1 ball at the U.S. Open for the 75 th consecutive year, continuing golf’s longest running equipment success story. The winner, Wyndham Clark, played a Pro V1x. – For the fifth consecutive season, following the inception of the Titleist Speed Project, more players on the PGA TOUR are using a Titleist driver (32%) than any other brand – including five of the top 10 and nine of the top 17 players in the OWGR. Five of the last seven major champions have gamed a Titleist driver. – Titleist is the longstanding most played iron on the PGA TOUR for 19 of the last 20 seasons, including the last nine in a row, with more players trusting Titleist T100 models than any other. The TOUR’s most popular hybrids and utility irons are also Titleist. – Week in and week out, there are more Vokey Design wedges in play on TOUR than all other brands combined. Seven of the top 10 players in the world use at least one Vokey wedge. – More champions throughout the PGA TOUR season used Titleist golf balls (28), drivers (14), irons (12) and Vokey wedges (24) than any other brand. – At three events during the ‘22-’23 FedExCup schedule (Butterfield Bermuda Championship, Sentry Tournament of Champions, American Express), Titleist topped every major equipment count as the #1 ball and most played driver, fairway, hybrid, utility, iron, wedge and putter. The Amex marked the 30th time since the start of the 2019 calendar year that Titleist has swept the counts. Titleist remains the only brand to ever accomplish this feat on the PGA TOUR. THE #1 BALL IN GOLF | INSIDE THE NUMBERS The world’s best teed up the #1 ball in golf a combined 4,444 times (72%) during the FedExCup season, more than seven times the nearest competitor (627), with Titleist golf ball players accounting for 28 victories (58%): World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler registered one of the TOUR’S historic ballstriking seasons with his Pro V1 golf ball, leading statistics week after week while collecting 17 top-10 finishes and two wins in 23 appearances – including a record-setting victory at THE PLAYERS. The world No. 1 finished his season averaging 2.62 Strokes Gained: Tee to Green per round, the second-best average in the 20-year shotlink era. He was the first PLAYERS Champion to shoot all four rounds in the 60’s (68-69-65-69), while gaining more strokes on the field tee to green (+17.17) than any other PLAYERS Champion in the shotlink era. He posted 17 under for the week and won his sixth career PGA TOUR title by five shots. Scheffler led the TOUR in Greens in Regulation, averaging 74.43% (the highest percentage since 2001) and winning the GIR title for a second consecutive year. He made bogey or worse on just 10.73% of his holes played this season, the first player to average below 11% since 2002. His adjusted scoring average of 68.63 for the season is the 7 th -best of all time. His total of 17 top-10 finishes is the highest of any player since 2005. Scheffler is also on pace to become the first player to lead the TOUR in both Stokes Gained: Off the Tee and Strokes Gained: Approach. Scheffler on the performance of his Pro V1: “I feel like you're always playing a different type of shot. Rarely am I just hitting a straight up stock shot, you're always trying to do a little something with the golf ball. And so having that consistency and knowing that golf ball's going to react the way I need it to react when it comes off the face and when it goes into the green - especially when you get in a Tour setup where the greens are crazy firm, the wind is blowing - you got to have total control over where that golf ball is going to go. I feel like I've gotten that consistency with the Titleist ball over the years and I really trust how it reacts.” Titleist golf ball players also topped the following categories through the TOUR Championship: Sub-par rounds (69): Wyndham Clark (Pro V1x), Stephan Jaeger (Pro V1) Total Birdies (438): Eric Cole (Pro V1x) Total Eagle (18): Kevin Tway (Pro V1) Par-3 Scoring Avg. (2.94): Max Homa (Pro V1) Par-4 Scoring Avg. (3.91): Scottie Scheffler (Pro V1) Par-5 Scoring Avg. (4.44): Patrick Cantlay (Pro V1x) Total Hole-Outs (25): Ben An (Pro V1x), Ben Griffin (Pro V1) Scrambling (67.74%): Brian Harman (Pro V1) Proximity to Hole Around the Green (6’7”): Tony Finau (Pro V1 Left Dot), Ben An (Pro V1x) In winning the 123 rd US Open , Wyndham Clark was in total control of his Pro V1x golf ball, gaining strokes on the field off the tee (+5.76), approaching the green (+1.06) and around the greens (+3.9) at LACC. “Honestly, one of the most important things in a player’s bag is the golf ball,” Clark said. “If you don’t have control of that, then it doesn’t matter how you’re swinging, how the clubs are made, whatever. The golf ball is so important, and that’s ultimately what goes into the hole. Having faith and trusting your golf ball is huge.” twitter.com/.../1670265485534064640 Gaming his Pro V1 golf ball, Brian Harman joined Clark in major history, winning the Claret Jug at Royal Liverpool in a runaway six-shot victory. Harman took control of the championship on Friday morning after shooting 65, a round that was more than eight shots better than the field average. “The reason I switched back to Titleist was because of windy days and with Open Championships and major championships in mind,” said Harman, who made the move to his Pro V1 in 2017, switching from a competitive model after teaming up with Johnson Wagner at the Zurich Classic. “I just was never able to flight my old ball. I had trouble controlling and especially in the wind and we ended up playing so much wind out here. The effects for me were immediate switching to this Pro V and I mean, it’s been a complete 180. The way that I flight iron shots, the way that I control it around the green, it saves me, I don't know how many shots it’s saved me.” Fellow Pro V1 player Viktor Hovland finished off his season in style, winning back-to-back weeks at the BMW Championship and TOUR Championship to capture the FedExCup. On Sunday of the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields Country Club, Hovland vaulted to the top of the leaderboard after a Sunday 61. His 9-under closing round – which set the course record at Olympia Fields – featured a final-nine 28 that included five approach shots inside of 9 feet. He gained 3.48 strokes with his approach play on the back nine alone on his way to closing out the tournament and the lowest final round shot in FedExCup Playoff history. www.instagram.com/.../ The very next week, Hovland closed in similarly dominant fashion, winning the TOUR Championship by five after a bogey-free final round 63. The round was Hovland’s 11 th -consecutive round in the 60’s and seventh round of 66 or better during the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Hovland also won The Memorial in June, making it a three-win season. “First of all, it gives me a lot of consistency around the greens. I like how it feels off the face. I like how I’m able to spin the ball around the greens. But at the same time, I don’t sacrifice anything to the full shots. When I hit a drive on a par-5 and I’m trying to get after it, I don’t have to worry about the spin creeping up too high. I can still hit a high launch with low spin and then if I missed the green in two, I can still hit a short-sided shot with a lot of spin. So I think just the versatility is the key with the Pro V1 ball for me – and especially in the wind because we do play in a lot of wind. And I think that’s kind of the biggest challenge. If you don’t have a good ball in the wind, it really plays a big difference. The consistency in the wind, knowing how much it’s going to curve in certain wind directions and stuff like that – it just plays really well for me.” In January at the Farmers Insurance Open, Max Homa captured his second victory of the season after putting 2023 Pro V1 in play for the first time. Homa made the decision to move to the new model after visiting the Titleist Performance Institute and working through his bag with his coach Mark Blackburn and J.J. Van Wezenbeec k, Titleist’s Director of Player Promotions. “With ’23 Pro V1 we saw Max’s ball speed jump a little bit off the driver with lower spin,” Van Wezenbeeck said. “It was flying great. He was even more consistent with his irons and the short game performance was as good as ever. It was a no brainer.” After the testing session, Homa took a box of NEW Pro V1’s out for a casual nine-hole round with his caddie Joe Greiner and friends at Rancho Santa Fe Country Club. “I wasn’t thinking much about the golf ball really, and then all of a sudden I got to [hole] 8 and I had like 230 way up a hill, front pin, and I hit this big high 4 iron and I stopped it real fast,” Homa told Jonathan Wall on GOLF’s Fully Equipped podcast . “And I looked at Joe and I was like, ‘OK.’ … I called J.J. and I said, ‘Hey I’m going to use the golf ball.’” Over the four days at Torrey Pines, Homa put on a ballstriking clinic, leading the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+10.620) on his way to collecting his sixth PGA TOUR victory. “Lo and behold, I hit two of the best 4-irons of my life on 11 and 16 on the final round...,” Homa said on the podcast. “But when I was done I was like, ‘Dang, that’s pretty cool to see that you could throw the golf ball in.’ I hit one on 11 where I threw it as high as I could with spin. And then on 16 I wanted one to be flat and get through the wind a little bit. I don’t know, that was great.” THE TOUR'S MOST PLAYED DRIVER | THE POWER OF THE TITLEIST SPEED PROJECT Following the breakthrough performance gains of the Titleist Speed Project and the introduction of the TS, TSi and now TSR driver models, Titleist has been the most played driver on the PGA TOUR for five straight seasons. Thirty-two percent of all drivers in play during the 2022-23 FedExCup season were Titleist models, compared to 22% for the nearest competitor. Five of the last seven major championships have been won with a Titleist driver, including the 2023 U.S. Open (Wyndham Clark) and the 2023 Open Championship (Brian Harman). Five of the top 10 players in the OWGR play a Titleist driver, as well as nine of the top 17. To open the season, Max Homa captured the Fortinet Championship gaming his TSR3 10.0 driver, while Tom Kim won the Shriners Children’s Open with his TSR3 9.0 a few weeks later. The most popular driver model on the PGA TOUR is Titleist TSR3. Said Homa: “Sounds like you’re smashing it, which is nice. I did notice that the spin didn’t change as much when you mishit it. The heel and toe strikes kept the spin a little closer to your good ones. That’s obviously something I think everybody would be happy to have. It’s a mile an hour faster for me, just ball speed. So it feels like a no brainer.” Said Kim: “I had been playing the TSi3 for the longest time and I thought I wasn’t going to change it, but after trying it at TPI, it was just so good that I had to put it in the bag, and it’s been working out really well,” said Kim. “My percentage in the fairway has gone up and, yeah, it’s a keeper. Missed hits, solid hits, it just stays in the wind so well for me, that’s what I’ve had trouble with before and I thought I was going to use the ‘i’ for the rest of the season, but I put it right in the bag because I gained ball speed, gained swing speed, smash factor went up and holds it really well into the wind. So it was great.” Wyndham Clark gained over five shots on the field off the tee (+5.44, 2 nd ) with his TSi3 driver during his U.S. Open victory. Said Clark: “I use this driver because it’s so consistent. My misses are incredible and that’s big for me...When you miss with the Titleist it stays within the parameters that I need to play good golf. And that’s ultimately why I use Titleist clubs, especially this driver.” Brian Harman made it back-to-back major wins for Titleist drivers, gaming his TSi2 9.0 driver on his way to victory at Hoylake. Harman led the field in driving accuracy for the week, hitting 75% of his fairways over 72 holes and hitting 12/14 fairways on Sunday during the most pressure-packed 18 holes of his career. For the week, he gained over three shots on the field off the tee (+3.26). “It’s been an awesome driver, man,” Harman said. “Put it right in the bag right when it came out and it’s hot, it’s fast, it’s high. I can do whatever I want with it. It’s great.” Lee Hodges earned his first career PGA TOUR event at the 3M Open, punctuated by four key shots – two a piece with his TSR2 8.0 driver, TSR3 15.0 fairway. Hodges made two eagles on Sunday, both from 257 yards and both set up with his TSR2 driver off the tee and his TSR3 15.0 fairway into the green. On the par-5 6 th , Hodges knocked his Pro V1 to 11 feet, while his approach on the par-5 12 th settled to 2 feet, 8 inches from the cup. “Anytime you hit two 3-woods inside 10 feet you're being pretty aggressive,” he told the media after the round. “Those were two of the greatest shots I ever hit...I had the exact same number both times and in the exact same wind. I just had to hold a little 3-wood. And it was 257 both times. I just had to get it up in the air and hold it and I did it pretty well.” Hodges also games a TSR3 21.0 hybrid, with Titleist making up 41% of the hybrids played on TOUR, compared to 17% for the nearest competitor. NEW T-SERIES IRONS | OFF AND RUNNING Titleist has been the most played iron on the PGA TOUR for 19 of the last 20 seasons, including each of the last nine, while T100 continues to be the most played iron model on TOUR since the first generation debuted in 2019. The most played utility iron on TOUR is also Titleist, chosen 42% of the time (nearest competitor: 19%). The newest generation of Titleist T-Series irons – T100, T150, T200 and T350 – as well as the new T200 and U•505 utilities – launched on TOUR this summer at The Memorial, seeing instant Tour adoption and success. Lee Hodges claimed the 3M Open with a mixed set that included new T100 4-6 irons. He gained more than nine shots on the field with his approach shots that week and hit 81% of his greens in regulation. www.instagram.com/.../ “They’re so great, same spin numbers, same carry distances and I was getting about 7 to 8 to 9 feet of height, so you’d be a fool not to play them.” Hodges told GolfWRX after his victory. “I put them in the bag that week (at Memorial)... If it’s better, you’re a fool not to use it.” Cameron Young was one of the first players to game new T-Series models in competition, adding new T100 4-5 irons to his blended set the first week they were available. “I actually probably like the way that the T100s go through the ground better than, say, an MB, because I'm pretty steep and I take some big divots,” he said. “Just the shape of that sole and just the little extra width I think really helps me in the longer irons, helps me get it up in the air. Just helps me take the divots I want to... But [the T100 and MBs] look so similar. Especially when you hit one solid, they feel so much the same. I don't get to that part of the bag and say, well, I really want to hit 6 because it's the MB. It's almost the other way around sometimes. Cameron Smith (New T100 5-9 irons) and Tom Kim (New T200 3 iron, T100 4-9 irons) joined the growing list of players gaming new T-Series models, with both players adding new irons to the bag at LACC en route to high finishes (Smith: 4 th , Kim: T8). “Just a lot cleaner through the ground for me, which is nice,” Smith said. Said Kim, who gained more than seven strokes on the field at LACC on approach shots (: “The feel [of new T100] was just so much better than the ones I've used. And to be honest, I've gone through three sets of T100s, and every time I hit it at the new ones, I kind of question, ‘Man, can it get any better?’ And for some reason it does.” www.instagram.com/.../ Kim, on his T200’s: “The sound just completely changed, especially, not when you hit it good, but the mishits, the sound was really similar to the solid ones. The ball flight didn't change much, and obviously the ball flight of it, where the curve was and everything was really similar to my good shots." Also making a utility iron change at LACC was the 2023 FedExCup Champion , who added a new U•505 3 iron to the bag. He has played Titleist for his utility iron since the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, when he was seeking high-launching hybrid-like performance in an iron construction. Max Homa earned his sixth PGA TOUR win at the Farmers Insurance Open in January, hitting “two of the best four irons of his life” coming down the stretch to seal the victory. Homa, who games a T100•S 4 iron along with his T100 5 iron and 620 MB 6-9 irons, made birdie on the 213-yard par-3 11 th hole after hitting his 4-iron approach to 12 feet. Just a few holes later, Homa stepped to the 16 th tee trailing by one shot. Facing a 227-yard shot back into the wind, he again reached for his 4 iron and hit the closest approach of the day, his ball settling 15 feet from the cup. Similar to Homa’s setup, Davis Riley and his partner both won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with blended iron sets. Riley: T100 4 iron, 620 CB 5-6 irons; 620 MB 7-9 irons; 2023 Zurich Classic Champion: T100 4 iron, 620 MB 5-P irons. Both of the final two major championships of the year were won with Titleist irons and utilities, as Wyndham Clark captured the U.S. Open at LACC while Brian Harman earned the title of Champion Golfer of the Year at Royal Liverpool.

Vokey wedges were used to win 23 tournaments this ‘22-23 PGA TOUR season, including two majors: the U.S. Open and the Open Championship. Shortly after breaking through on the PGA TOUR and winning the Wells Fargo Championship, Wyndham Clark captured his first major title, winning the U.S. Open at LACC with four Vokey Design wedges in the bag: Vokey Design SM9 46.10F, 52.12F, 56.10S, WedgeWorks 60A. Clark leaned on his short game all week, gaining nearly four shots around the green (3.92/7 th ) and leading the field in proximity to the hole on shorts around the green (5’9”), more than four feet better than the field average (9’11”). Key up-and-downs from difficult positions on Nos. 11 and 17 were essential in holding off the field and winning by one. – “I use the SM9s, these are incredible,” Clark said. “Vokey's done a great job in creating a wedge that launches at the launch you want, which is kind of a lower launch, but with a ton of spin. And that’s what all of us out here strive and try to get with our wedges is that lower launch that fights through the wind. But then when it lands, it is really receptive.” Brian Harman also joined Clark as a first-time major champion, winning at Royal Liverpool by six shots. Harman gamed three Vokey Design wedges (Vokey Design SM9 50.08F, 54.08M, 60.04L) en route to victory, getting up-and-down 75% of the time and gaining 1.44 shots around the greens at Hoylake. The 2023 PLAYERS Champion showed off his short game prowess at TPC Sawgrass on his way to winning by five, gaming his Vokey Design SM8 50.12F, 56.14F and SM9 WedgeWorks 60T wedges. He gained over five shots on the field around the green, holing out twice over the weekend, and got up-and-down 72% of the time. He has used three Vokey wedges in each of his six PGA TOUR titles, including the 2023 WM Phoenix Open. Max Homa won the season opener at the Fortinet Championship in dramatic fashion, holing out from 32 feet on the 72 nd hole with his 60.04L lob wedge on his way to winning by one. Said Homa on the tournament-winning shot: “I mean, it was as short-sided as you could be, you couldn’t really stop it. I spin it and once it hit the pin, it almost like spun straight into the ground.” The champion of the 2023 RBC Heritage won with three Vokey wedges in the bag (SM9 52.12F, 56.08 and WedgeWorks 60T), gaining over three strokes on the field around the greens and getting up and down 83% of the time. Each player in the Top 4 had at least two Vokeys in the bag, with all four players using an SM9 WedgeWorks T Grind lob wedge. Similarly, every player in the final top 9 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational – including the then 2 nd , 3 rd and 4 th -ranked players in the OWGR – had at least one Vokey in the bag, including the champion, who played an SM9 WedgeWorks 60.06K. The Vokey Design T Grind is the most popular lob wedge grind on TOUR, with at least 41 of the top 100 players in the OWGR as of the week of the TOUR Championship having played the T Grind this season. 7 of the top 10 and 14 of the top 20 players in the OWGR carry at least one Vokey wedge, including Jordan Spieth: “I like to really hit my wedges with lower trajectory,” Spieth said after switching to his current SM9 models. “I feel like that I can control my distances a lot better when I do that, so the idea that when I’m hitting three-quarter shots with those clubs on those kind of not full yardages, maybe if you have to flight one in the wind or off an upslope, they seem to be really, really consistently coming off with that nice low ball flight. “All the good stuff stayed the same and then I felt like I could get even a little more dialed in on some of those three-quarter approach shots that a lot of times we have to have into some tuck pins out here. Without jeopardizing any of the full shots or any of the workability that I’ve always liked with my wedges.” SCOTTY CAMERON PUTTERS | THE CHOICE OF CHAMPIONS The choice of many of the world’s best, including eight of the world’s top 20, Scotty Cameron putters continue to collect victories at the highest level of professional golf. The 2023 PGA Champion won his fifth-career major championship with a Scotty Cameron T22 Newport 2 tour prototype in the bag at Oak Hill. The winner of the 2023 WM Phoenix Open and PLAYERS Championship also gamed a Newport 2-style blade putter, winning his 2023 titles with a Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tourtype GSS tour prototype putter. Max Homa (Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 tour prototype), Tom Kim (Scotty Cameron TourType Timeless GSS tour prototype), Russell Henley (Scotty Cameron TourType Special Select Timeless GSS Long Neck tour prototype putter), Lee Hodges (Scotty Cameron GOLO 6 tour prototype) and Davis Riley (Scotty Cameron Phantom X 7.2 tour prototype) were also among the group of players who brought Scotty Cameron putters to the winner’s circle this season. www.instagram.com/.../ For Homa, it’s now five wins and counting with a Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter model in the bag. The run began at the 2021 Genesis Invitational, where Homa, gaming a Phantom X 11.5, became the first player to win with a Phantom X model putter on the PGA TOUR. Four months later, he switched to the Phantom X 5.5, which he used to win the last two Fortinet Championships as well as the Wells Fargo Championship last May. Said Homa, on his switch to Phantom X: “I was just struggling with face control with my putter. So I tried a few mallets, ended up going with one of the Phantoms and it just felt like it swung a bit better. It didn’t feel like I needed to work so much with my hands to release the putter. And at that time that’s really what I needed and then I got hooked on them. … “I think you almost don't have to do as much with your hands, so you can just focus on the big muscles. And I feel like, especially with putting, especially when you’re nervous, that’s a huge part of being consistent and having a lot of repetition. I felt like that was something that I was missing. And when I switched to that, I felt like it just became a lot more predictable just because I could take out a variable. … “Speed control became much easier with the Phantom style. I felt like because of the weight of the head or just the way it swung, I just felt like it was a lot easier to control my putts from 15 to 25 feet. That’s where I’ve typically struggled. That’s definitely the most obvious impact I saw. … “I think we work a lot on alignment with my putting, with getting the face square to the target line and something about the way they set up, I feel like they’re very square. I feel like that’s helped, but I really do think that the speed control has been the main benefactor (to my wins), holing a couple extra 10 to 20 footers. And that typically is mostly speed based, less start line than the closer putts.”

I'm being fit for the new T-Series irons this weekend, but also have an opportunity to buy a used set of 2021 T100S. I've read the changes that have been made regarding thicker top line and a little more blade length. Curious for those of you who have hit both of these - what are the noticeable differences here? Apologies if this topic has been covered in detail before. Dug through several pages of discussion but didn't find it listed.

Last weekend, my partner, spouse and TT member and I won the 82nd Annual City of Sacramento Mixed Team Championship. We've played this tournament for over 18 years and knocked on the door a couple of times. It was great to finally break through. I've had my new T350 set for almost a month and I put them in the bag for 2 tournaments. In one tournament, we won our flight and this most recent one, we won the overall. Prior to getting the T350's, I felt my game had plateaued and I was grinding to find a solution to my funk. Suffice to say, I'm super impressed with these new irons and I'm looking forward to what else they can do. www.titleist.com/.../ofsmn0vahqize2dgeyjy www.titleist.com/.../alqsqj2t6n2eyjc6d0ap www.titleist.com/.../xsevwk9q07rjjdxbsu8g

LPGA | Women’s Scottish Open A week after her breakthrough major championship victory, Celine Boutier (Pro V1x) made an immediate return to the winner’s circle, outpacing the field in Scotland by two shots for her fifth career LPGA title. Boutier was one of just two players to break par all four days around Dundonald Links (69-68-66-70) on her way to posting 15 under for the week. In total control of her golf ball, the 29-year-old Frenchwoman hit 47/56 fairways (84%) and 59/72 greens (82%) in regulation. Said Boutier: “I feel like it's really, really important to be a good ball-striker in these conditions because you really have to control your ball flight and your distance control really well. So I think it’s very rewarding if you’re a good ball-striker.” Following her stellar play over the past two events, Boutier ranks 1st in the Race to CME Globe standings with three LPGA victories this season and is poised to make her third career Solheim Cup start for Team Europe this September. PGA TOUR | Wyndham Championship WEBB SIMPSON EARNS SEASON-BEST FINISH WITH NEW T100 IRONS Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson arrived to Sedgefield Country Club this week with new irons in the bag, debuting a set of NEW T-Series T100 6-PW models (Dynamic Gold 120 X100 shafts). A longtime blade player, Simpson recently added a T100 6 iron at the top end of his bag, with his muscle-back 621.WS prototype 7-PW irons completing his set. Simpson had been practicing with a full set of NEW T100 irons at home since his last start in early July at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, having requested a full set from Titleist tour reps based on the feel and performance of his 6-iron. This week at the Wyndham, the 2012 U.S. Open champ shot four rounds in the 60’s – including a final-round 63 that vaulted him up the leader board – to finish T5, his best result of the year. He hit 75 percent greens in regulation (tying his best GIR of the season) and saw his best proximity to the hole overall (32'9") since March. “I tested them a lot the last couple weeks,” Simpson said after the first round. “They’re a little better than my blades out of the rough. And this golf course has a lot of rough and I thought the iron could be a little more stable, and I had a couple out of the rough today that they did pretty good. It’s a really similar look to what I was playing, so wasn’t a huge change, but I’ll probably always go back and forth.” Titleist has been the most played iron on the PGA TOUR for 18 of the last 19 seasons, including each of the last nine, while T100 continues to be most played iron model by the world’s best since the first generation’s introduction on TOUR in 2019. The new T-Series irons are now available for fittings and available in golf shops globally beginning Aug. 25. Matching Simpson with a final-round 63 was the 2013 Masters Champion, who also made the move to new Titleist irons this week following a recent conversation with Titleist Brand Ambassador Wyndham Clark . On Thursday, the 20-year TOUR veteran stepped to the first tee with a new set of 620 CB's , the same model that Clark used to win the U.S. Open. (He played his final two rounds with the 620 CB 4 and 5 irons.) Titleist Brand Ambassador Brian Harman also gamed 620 CB irons in winning The Open Championship. KORN FERRY TOUR | Utah Championship Titleist Brand Ambassador Roger Sloan birdied his final two holes on Sunday to cap off a final-round 66 and win by one shot. Sloan, gaming a Pro V1x golf ball along with a full bag of Titleist equipment , turned in four rounds of 66 or better (66-65-63-66) on his way to posting 24 under. It was a ball-striking week for the books for the 36-year-old, who hit 67/72 (1st, 93%) greens in regulation around Oakridge Country Club. Sloan converted 26 birdies for the week, his last coming from a 72nd hole wedge that settled within feet of the cup. Ten of the 11 players finishing inside the top 10 on Sunday’s final leader board played a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, including runner-up Christopher Petefish (Pro V1) , who went 72 holes without making a bogey. What’s in the Bag? | Roger Sloan Golf Ball: Pro V1x Driver: TSi3 10.0° Fairway Metal: TSR3 15.0° Utility Iron: U•500 3 Irons: T100•S 4, T100 5-PW Wedges: Vokey Design SM9 50.08F, 56.08M, 60.04L Putters: Scotty Cameron Circa 6 flowneck tour prototype AMATEUR | Western Amateur The winner of the Western Amateur trusted his Pro V1x golf ball, TSR3 driver and full bag of Titleist equipment through 72 holes of stroke play and four rounds of match play – including his 1-up finals victory – to conquer the longest week in amateur golf.

Greetings all! I've read on a couple of different threads that some people already have their new T-Series irons in hand. I've read other posts saying they won't ship until after Labor Day. Just curious if people could share what your turnaround time was or what they were told by their fitter? I got fitted on 8/4 and purchased the 150's. I was quoted 3-5 weeks. Any insight is appreciated! Thanks all

www.youtube.com/watch It’s hard to believe that only one year ago was the inaugural Team Titleist International Invitational at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic. We knew it would be hard to top the stunning Caribbean sunsets and beach club setting, so we sought after an experience that we knew golf fanatics would obsess over. We traded clear skies and crashing waves for 30 mph wind and rain and headed to the birthplace of golf: Scotland. DAY ONE After checking into our home for the weekend, The Old Course Hotel, and snapping some photos on the famed Swilcan Bridge, Team Titleist members were transferred to the highly rated Dumbarnie Golf Links to get the festivities started. Upon arrival at the course, Team Titleist Members headed to the range where Titleist Golf Ball Fitters evaluated swings and made expert suggestions as to which ball would be the best performing for everyone's’ game. As we waited for our tee times, umbrellas were opened and hoods were drawn as the wind and rain picked up a steady pace, but some authentic weather didn’t hold Team Titleist from having an absolute blast. For those that needed a little more warmth, a customary shot of whiskey was offered on the first tee to steady the nerves. Following this authentic Scottish links experience, everyone was transferred back to the Old Course hotel for a delicious dinner in the 17th Fairway Conservatory. After a full day of premium Titleist brand experience, guests returned to their rooms where they were greeted by a custom commemorative Vokey SM9 wedge and a gift bag jammed full of Team Titleist exclusive gear. DAY TWO After a traditional Scottish breakfast with spectacular views over St Andrews, we moved to the to The Dukes Course where the weather was much kinder. It was perfect weather for putting the newest T-Series Irons to the test as guests were some of the first consumers in the world to experience our latest irons lineup. After some refreshments in the clubhouse, we moved to the range to enjoy a great clinic by up-and-coming amateur, Ruben Lindsay. Ruben is famed for his high ball speed and when we asked if he could hit 200mph, he promptly made the numbers appear on Trackman multiple times over. The evening finished in the Old Course Hotel Green Sheds for the Gala Dinner. As the sun set over the endless hills, we enjoyed our last team gathering before prizes and goodbyes. Dinner and drinks were shared with new friends, and longtime friendships bonded even further. We all truly felt the magic of this historical landscape. Before some retired to the Road Hole bar or Jigger Inn to re-live the events of the past two days, we shared cheer and laughter as raffle prize winners claimed their awards, including the 151 st Open Tour Bag , T-Series Irons and some custom Titleist gear . Although everyone didn’t walk away with a grand prize, we all received one last special Team Titleist gift item before the evening concluded: a custom TT scorecard holder and a special ball marker commemorating Titleist being the #1 ball in golf at the U.S. Open for 75 years and still counting. DAY THREE The Eden Course was the last stop on the trip for those who had opted to stay on. Another true links test and a wonderful way to finish the event. We forged on through intense winds and severe bunkers but enjoyed every minute of true Scotland golf before parting our separate ways. At the end of the weekend, everyone left with great memories and the new friendships these events always seem to ignite. Interested in finding out where we’re headed next? Be sure to follow our discussion boards , keep an up-to-date Team Titleist profile , and participate in fittings , and events. A big thank you to everyone who attended. Every Team Titleist Event is a testament to how truly special this community is. Without you, none of this would be possible. Sign-up to Team Titleist to take part in future events just like this one.

Improvements to the Tour-Proven T-Series Line Deliver Unrivaled Feel, Looks and Performance The next generation Titleist T-Series irons family establishes a new standard in iron engineering, reaffirming Titleist’s commitment to creating the world’s best irons while providing golfers with optimized performance options from their shortest to longest iron. The new tour-proven T-Series models – T100 , T150 , T200 and T350 – deliver unrivaled feel with effortless turf interaction in four tour-inspired shapes, each designed to maximize the three dimensions of iron performance: distance control, dispersion control and descent angle. “The new T-Series irons embody a unique approach to iron design and creation,” said Josh Talge, VP, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “Down to the finest details, this new line delivers best-in-class performance with stunning aesthetics and feel. Each model has been designed to feel as good as it looks, look as good as it performs, and perform better than any iron we’ve created before it.” Titleist has been the most played iron on the PGA TOUR for 18 of the last 19 seasons, including each of the last nine, while T100 continues to be most played iron model by the world’s best since the first generation’s introduction on TOUR in 2019. All four new T-Series models, which debuted this summer at the PGA TOUR’s Memorial Tournament, have been played at the highest level of professional golf. Of the Titleist Brand Ambassadors currently playing on the PGA TOUR, approximately 80 percent are playing blended sets of at least two Titleist iron models, demonstrating the importance of custom fitting and optimization throughout the bag. “New T-Series irons raise the bar in terms of total performance. Players are always looking for iron performance to be more consistent,” said Marni Ines, Director, Titleist Irons Development , Golf Club R&D. “We want players to hit their distance as often as possible, we want players to hit their preferred flight as often as possible, and we want as tight a dispersion pattern as possible. Each new T-Series iron – from T100 all the way to T350 – feels outstanding, and all of them perform better across the board.” NOW AVAILABLE FOR FITTINGS The new T-Series irons will be available for fittings starting today and available in golf shops globally beginning Aug. 25. An authorized Titleist fitter will help determine the best combination of T-Series models to unlock the golfer’s ability to hit the golf ball more consistently closer to the pin. Golfers can find a Titleist fitting location beginning today by visiting https://www.titleist.com/locator?searchtype=fit . T100 | THE MODERN TOUR IRON For the better player who is looking for precision control and unrivaled feel from the TOUR’s most played model. Chosen by more touring professionals than any other iron in the world, T100 irons have been in the bags of the world’s best since its introduction in 2019. Players such as Jordan Spieth , Cameron Smith , Justin Thomas , Max Homa , Will Zalatoris , Sungjae Im and Tom Kim are among the many players to trust T100 models in their iron setups. PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGY Improvements to the newest iteration of T100 are born out of the constant feedback and testing from some of the world’s best ballstrikers. A refined, forged dual-cavity construction in new T100 delivers a more solid feel at impact, and a new precision CNC face milling process results in more consistent contact and control. Enhanced Feel: T100’s dual-cavity forged construction features an updated and enhanced back bar, producing an even more solid feel at impact. Informed by modal testing and tour input, the new models are tuned to provide the same sensation and stability desired by the world’s best from a well-struck shot. Better Tungsten for Better Flight: With the use of dense D18 tungsten and a 2000° aerospace brazing process, Titleist engineers have eliminated weld points to be ultra-precise with CG placement. The result: all the benefits of modern engineered performance with a solid forged feel. Refined for Greater Control: In addition to improvements in body construction, new T100 features a new precision CNC face milling process. Complimenting a subtle shift in CG, the process now delivers more control and consistency in ball flight, especially between the fairway and the first cut. Effortless Turf Interaction: Collecting input from both tour pros as well as Vokey Design grind experts, Titleist engineers were able to improve T100’s Variable Bounce Sole by smoothing and softening its trail edge. The result is a faster move through the turf, even after contact. QUOTING MARNI INES: “We worked hard to enhance feel and performance in T100. We're still starting with forging, we're still starting with dual cavity construction. However, this has been completely re-engineered. By strengthening the back bar of T100, we were able to carve out material in the heel, toe, and face to save weight. This gives us greater control over CG placement and results in a better feeling, more forgiving iron with tightened dispersion. With the CNC face milling process, now we have a more consistent face, more consistent grooves, which gives you more consistent spin and distance.” STEEL FEATURED SHAFT: True Temper AMT Tour White Ascending Mass Technology: 3g per club (106-130g) Low launch, low spin GRAPHITE FEATURED SHAFT: MCA Tensei White AM2 Ascending Mass Technology: 2g per club (94-108g) Low launch, low spin GRIP: NEW proprietary Titleist Universal 360 Grip PRICING: $200 MAP/club and $1,399 MAP/7-piece set (Steel); $216 MAP/club and $1,499 MAP/7-piece set (Graphite) T150 | THE FASTER TOUR IRON For the player who wants the exact precision and feel of T100 with increased speed, distance and forgiveness. Built on the same fully forged platform as T100, T150 is engineered to be faster and longer. Built with 2° stronger lofts compared to T100, T150 now features a more confidence-inspiring shape and improved forgiveness, all while retaining the same blade length and offset measurements as T100 for a true player-preferred look. PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGY Sharing many of the tech features of T100, T150 delivers even more performance exactly where players need it. From its fully forged feel to slightly strengthened lofts, T150 offers outstanding touch and flight control. A refined Muscle Channel and updated shape blend under-the-hood performance with an inviting profile. Enhanced Feel & Consistency: Built for added speed, the all-new refined Muscle Channel in T150 is situated close to the face to create an even more solid feel at impact. The precision CNC face milling process eliminates imperfections on the surface, driving ultimate levels of consistency. Better Tungsten for Better Performance: Ultra-dense D18 tungsten and a 2000° aerospace brazing process gives Titleist engineers precision with CG placement, delivering outstanding MOI and launch dynamics to the player – all within a solid, fully forged design. Shaped to Suit the Player: Based on player input, T150 presents an optimized, confidence-inspiring topline. The slightly larger profile promotes forgiveness without sacrificing a compact, tour look. Effortless Turf Interaction: Improvements to the Variable Bounce Sole are also found in T150, with a softened trailing edge bringing a tour-level feel through the turf to the new models. QUOTING MARNI INES: “The main difference in T150’s construction versus T100 is the Muscle Channel through the back bar, which has been re-engineered. The Muscle Channel has been shifted forward towards the face, and our CG placement with D18 tungsten has allowed us, again, to create tighter distance control for this iron. We also listened to those players that felt as though the shape of T100•S was on the smaller side. With this iron, we took that feedback and increased the topline thickness and widened the sole, which also gave us the ability to drive the CG lower. Whether they’re playing T150 throughout the set or taking advantage of its performance through a blended set, players will get the ball speeds and launches they need throughout the bag with T150.” STEEL FEATURED SHAFT: Project X LZ Loading Zone Technology allows the player to load the shaft more for increased energy transfer while also getting a unique feel Low launch, low spin GRAPHITE FEATURED SHAFT MCA Tensei White AM2 Ascending Mass Technology: 2g per club (94-108g) Low launch, low spin GRIP: NEW proprietary Titleist Universal 360 Grip PRICING: $200 MAP/club and $1,399 MAP/7-piece set (Steel); $216 MAP/club and $1,499 MAP/7-piece set (Graphite) T200 | THE PLAYERS DISTANCE IRON For the player who wants added distance and forgiveness without compromising on looks, feel, trajectory or stopping power. Meeting a player-preferred profile with total performance and dramatically enhanced feel, new T200 represents the ultimate tour-proven players distance iron. “The looks and performance of the previous generation T200 was really a first of its kind,” Talge said. “To have a model look like a Player's iron but perform like a Game Improvement iron was a massive step forward, and that was reflected in the tour adoption of T200. But we knew in this generation if we could improve feel, while also pushing performance gains, we could take T200 to the next level, and that’s exactly what Marni and his team accomplished.” PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY The newest version of T200 features an unmistakable leap forward in feel. A completely re-designed internal structure takes T200 to a new level, with a more stable chassis, refined Max Impact Technology and a new dual taper face bringing tour-level feel and speed to this forged-face iron model. Enhanced Feel: Every update to T200 contributes to a more solid feel at impact across the face. A re-engineered chassis creates a stiffer structure and allows the refined Max Impact Technology to fit tighter against the new dual taper forged face. Better Tungsten for Better Scoring: Dense D18 tungsten and a 2000° aerospace brazing process affords Titleist engineers the ability to maximize performance in each club – from fast, high-launching long irons to accurate and forgiving short irons. Clean and Confident Shape: Despite the drastic updates inside T200, the popular, tour-inspired shape of T200 remains consistent. A clean look from address promotes confidence, and identical blade length and offset measurements to T100 and T150 create seamless transitions throughout blended sets. Effortless Turf Interaction: The variable bounce sole design, successfully introduced in T100 to give players preferred feel through the turf, has now been added to the T200 iron. Input from tour pros and Vokey Design grind experts were instrumental in perfecting the trailing edge design in T200, which works faster and smoother through the turf. QUOTING MARNI INES: “When we set out to improve T200, feel was the top priority for the project. Listening to our players’ feedback, we didn't change T200’s shaping. On the inside, everything changed. We re-engineered the chassis and moved the core support bar closer to the center of the face. We also re-designed the flange to which the polymer muscle is attached and altered the thickness of the polymer core. All that went into these changes stemmed from the goal of making T200 feel as good as it looks.” STEEL FEATURED SHAFT: True Temper AMT Black Ascending Mass Technology: 3g per club (95-116g) Mid launch, mid spin GRAPHITE FEATURED SHAFT: MCA Tensei Blue AM2 Ascending Mass Technology: 2g per club (74-88g) Mid launch, mid spin GRIP: NEW proprietary Titleist Universal 360 Grip PRICING: $200 MAP/club and $1,399 MAP/7-piece set (Steel); $216 MAP/club and $1,499 MAP/7-piece set (Graphite) T350 | THE ULTIMATE GAME IMPROVEMENT IRON For the player who wants high launch, exceptional distance and forgiveness they can count on. High, far and forgiving, T350 is the best performing, best looking and best feeling Game Improvement iron to bear the Titleist script. PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY With an all-new hollow-body construction inspired by the tour-proven T200 chassis, the T350 maximizes speed and forgiveness through refined Max Impact Technology, a new dual-taper forged face and dual tungsten weighting. The advanced engineering trusted on tour can now be experienced by all players, especially those requiring launch and distance. “T350 is the best Game Improvement iron we’ve ever made. The performance – high, far, forgiving – speaks for itself, and when you add the feel and looks, it really sits in a class on its own,” Talge said. “To see our most forgiving iron model be put in play on tour really proves the versatility of this entire line and shows that the performance benefits from an iron like this is not limited to just one kind of player.” True Player’s Construction: Designed to be larger and more forgiving than T200, T350 gives players maximum forgiveness while retaining a pure player’s feel at impact. New levels of performance and feel are driven by the new multi-material, hollow-body construction, directly inspired by T200’s chassis. Better Tungsten for Better Results: Continuing to bridge the gap between the Player’s iron and the Game Improvement iron, T350 features the same dual-tungsten weighting found in T100, T150 and T200, which further promotes solid feel paired with maximum forgiveness. Fast Across the Face: Refinements and reinforcements to Max Impact Technology couples with a new dual-taper, forged face to impart tremendous speed across the entire hitting surface. T350’s face design promotes long and consistent carry distances on on- and off-center strikes, resulting in predictable and playable distance. Effortless Turf Interaction: Consistent with T100, T150 and T200, T350 also incorporates the variable bounce design as well as refinements to the trailing edge which have been meticulously crafted to optimally flow through the turf, making each strike feel even better. QUOTING MARNI INES: “The overall construction for T350 represents a massive step forward from the previous generation. We’ve gone from a one-piece cavity back construction to this forged, dual-taper face and hollow-body construction. T350 benefits from a re-vamped Max Impact core support, which we moved closer to the center of the face. The entire chassis has been stiffened, which helps to dampen vibration. We moved from a single tungsten weight to heel/toe tungsten weighting, which gives T350 a bump in MOI. With all these changes, we’ve created a platform that is all-around better performing versus the old model. It’s faster across the face, it flies higher, and it has tighter dispersion.” STEEL FEATURED SHAFT: True Temper AMT Red Ascending Mass Technology: 3g per club (94-106g) High launch, high spin GRAPHITE FEATURED SHAFT: MCA Tensei Red AM2 Ascending Mass Technology: 2g per club (54-68g) High launch, high spin GRIP: NEW proprietary Titleist Universal 360 Grip PRICING: $200 MAP/club and $1,399 MAP/7-piece set (Steel); $216 MAP/club and $1,499 MAP/7-piece set (Graphite) T SERIES ON TOUR Since their debut this summer on the PGA TOUR, new T-Series models have become a mainstay in bags across the worldwide professional tours. Cameron Young was one of the first players to game new T-Series models in competition, adding new T100 4-5 irons to his blended set the first week they were available. QUOTING YOUNG: “I probably like the way that the T100s go through the ground better than, say, an MB, because I'm pretty steep and I take some big divots. Just the shape of that sole and just the little extra width I think really helps me in the longer irons, helps me get it up in the air, just helps me take the divots I want to... But [the T100 and MBs] look so similar. Especially when you hit one solid, they feel so much the same. I don’t get to that part of the bag and say, well, I really want to hit 6 because it’s the MB. It’s almost the other way around sometimes. “Where you notice the difference is when you miss one. With the T100s, it just works out better than when you miss an MB. But I feel like they really just fit me well in that part of the bag. They do what I want out of that 4- or 5-iron. I want them to go high. I don't want them to be curving all over the place. I don't need to work them really hard left to right, right to left. I just want them to be a little bit more simple and I think that's where they fit in for me.” “I think the work [R&D puts in] to make them feel consistent throughout the line from an MB all the way up through some of the bigger heads I think, one, creates a consistency that you need to know what you're going to get because that way, you know what you're looking for in that strike. Two, I think the way these new ones feel, the new T100s are unbelievable. They feel so much like a blade. Just to know that it’s going to be that rewarding when you do get it right is something that obviously, you strive for.” Both Tom Kim and Cameron Smith put new T-Series in play for the first time at the U.S. Open at The Los Angeles Country Club. Smith (T100 5-9 irons) went on to finish solo 4 th while Kim (T200 3 iron, T100 4-9 irons) finished T8, his best finish in a major championship to date. QUOTING TOM KIM: “The feel was just so much better than the ones I've used. And to be honest, I’ve gone through three sets of T100s, and every time I hit the new ones, I kind of question, ‘Man, can it get any better?’ And for some reason it does.” KIM ON NEW T200: “The sound just completely changed, especially, not when you hit it good, but the mishits, the sound was really similar to the solid ones. The ball flight didn't change much, and obviously the ball flight of it, where the curve was and everything was really similar to my good shots.” Also gaming a new T100 4 iron is Titleist Brand Ambassador Davis Riley : QUOTING RILEY: “I hit it and I was like, ‘I could game this thing immediately.’ And it’s crazy how similar the look is over the ball [to the MBs]. The top lines are so tight, but just the feeling through impact, and that’s why I love the MB so much is because it’s got that really good turf interaction and feel. But, with these T100s, I was like, ‘These are pretty similar. I could game these pretty immediately,’ and it was really cool. And it might be a thing where I might throw a couple more T100s in there just because I feel like they're so similar, and I’m getting that very similar feel and turf interaction. And if you’re doing that, I don't see why not.” Peter Malnati put a blended set of T100 (5-9 irons) and T200 (4 iron) in the bag at the Memorial. The next week, he also added a T350 long iron to his set. Also among those now gaming new T-Series: Justin Thomas (T100 4), Byeong Hun An (T200 3, T150 4-5), Jordan Spieth (T100 4), Antoine Rozner (T100 3-5), Ben Taylor (T100 4-9), Beau Hossler (T200 5), Lee Hodges (T100 4-6) and Garrick Higgo (T100 4-9). The third-ranked player in the Rolex Women’s World Ranking has a new T200 5-iron in the bag. Jordan Spieth (T150 3) and Max Homa (T200 2) also added new T-Series long irons to their bags at The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. TITLEIST IRON FITTING METHODOLOGY Titleist believes in a holistic approach to its irons which includes three key dimensions: Distance Control, Dispersion Control and Angle of Descent. Every T-Series iron is designed for maximum performance in these three areas: Distance Control: We look to maximize carry distances while maintaining an even and consistent 5 mph gap in ball speed between clubs, sometimes using a blended set of irons or including a utility or hybrid to achieve this ideal gapping. Dispersion Control: Analyzing left to right variance across different models and mixes, we fit you into a set of irons that will keep you closer to your target and in prime scoring position more often. Descent Angle: Great stopping power is the key to creating more scoring opportunities. We work to ensure that your final setup always keeps your ball coming down steep enough to stop quickly, measured against an optimal descent angle for every loft, from the shortest to longest iron in your bag. BLENDED SET OPTIMIZATION Of the Titleist Brand Ambassadors currently playing on the PGA TOUR, approximately 80 percent are playing blended sets of at least two Titleist iron models, demonstrating the importance of custom fitting and optimization throughout the bag. With the goal of providing players optimal distance gapping between clubs and sufficient green stopping ability throughout the bag, Titleist has introduced all-new long iron fitting tools to help all golfers find their ideal T-Series setup. The introduction of 4 and 5 irons into T-Series fittings will allow fitters to evaluate the following three metrics: Ball speed gaps: Golfers should see 5 mph gaps between clubs. Peak height: Players should be able to maintain consistent peak height between long irons and the 7 iron. Angles of descent: Long iron landing angles should be no lower than that of the 7 iron. 4 iron fitting tools: T100 AMT Tour White S300 T150 Project X LZ 6.0 T200 AMT Black S300 T350 AMT Red S300 5 iron fitting tools: T100 AMT Tour White S300 T150 Project X LZ 6.0 T200 AMT Black S300 T350 AMT Red S300 T350 Tensei Red Regular (Graphite) Golfers can find a Titleist fitting location by visiting www.titleist.com. ... #TeamTitleist

PGA TOUR | 3M Open Titleist Brand Ambassador Lee Hodges – playing a Pro V1 golf ball and bag full of Titleist equipment , including his TSR2 driver and NEW T100 irons – used four days of precision ball-striking and short game control to win his first PGA TOUR title by seven shots, the TOUR’s second-largest margin of victory since 2019. The 28-year-old closed out the first wire-to-wire victory this season on the PGA TOUR (and the first one in 3M Open history) with a 4-under 67 at TPC Twin Cities that included two Sunday eagles on the par-5 6th and 12th holes, each set up by his TSR2 9.0° driver and TSR3 15.0° fairway metal, and then converted with his NEW Scotty Cameron GOLO 6 putter. It was a shot making week for the books for Hodges, who opened the tournament with bogey-free rounds of 63-64 and never looked back, setting the event’s new scoring record at 24 under par. He ranked first in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green, gaining more than 12 shots (+12.383) on the field while making a field-best 25 birdies. Hodges, who plays a combo set of NEW T100 (4-6) and 620 CB (7-9) irons along with four Vokey Design SM9 wedges, led in SG: Approach (+9.393), while hitting 81% greens in regulation (58 of 72). He also gained more than a stroke off the tee (+1.769/T27) and around the green (+1.218/27th). Hodges was just as locked in on the greens, gaining more than six shots (+6.196) with his NEW GOLO 6 to rank 4th. With the win, Hodges moves to No. 33 in the FedEx Cup Points Standings and is projected to jump to No. 54 in the Official World Golf Ranking, the highest position of his career.

Last season, Hodges began his PGA TOUR career playing Pro V1x , which he had used to earn his card through the Korn Ferry Tour. He made the move to Pro V1 following a range session with Fordie Pitts of Titleist Golf Ball R&D at the 2022 Byron Nelson. “Lee had always been an X guy, but had been starting to fight a little trajectory and spin,” Pitts said. “So we went from X to V and it just brought him right back down, into the right window with the right amount of spin. The V, with that lower flight and spin, just fit him better and he'll tell you it’s been a game changer.” “I’ve never found a better golf ball,” Hodges said earlier this season at The American Express. “It’s perfect.” HODGES WINS WITH NEW T100 IRONS www.youtube.com/watch Lee Hodges was one of the first players in the world to hit the NEW T-Series T100 irons, which made their debut earlier this summer at The Memorial. Hodges, who plays a mixed set of T100 and CB irons, was on the range early Monday morning at Muirfield Village with Titleist tour reps, testing his NEW T100 4, 5 and 6 irons for the first time. “That 6-iron might be the best club I've ever hit, in my whole life,” Hodges said after one of his strikes. “I may just lay up to 6-iron...” Hodges, who is 37th on TOUR in approaches from 200-225 yards, put the new irons immediately in play that week on his way to a T12 finish. This week at the 3M, Hodges gained more than nine shots on the field on approach shots (+9.393) and 81% greens in regulation (58 of 72). “They’re fantastic (the T100’s). They still launch the ball really high, which you need with the higher irons, and are very forgiving for off center strikes,” Hodges said. TSR DRIVER & FAIRWAY = TWO SUNDAY EAGLES FOR HODGES Lee Hodges played four key shots during the final round at TPC Twin Cities – two with his TSR2 9.0° driver and two with his TSR3 15.0° fairway metal – that resulted in two of the biggest 3’s (and eagles) of his career: On the par-5 6th, Hodges hit his TSR2 driver 300 yards down the right side of the fairway, 257 yards from the hole. He pulled his TSR3 3-wood and took aim, over the water hazard, directly at the flag. His Pro V1 came to rest 11 feet, 2 inches from the hole. On the par-5 12th, his TSR2 driver split the fairway, 306 yards downrange, leaving him – once again – 257 yards to the pin. He went right back to his TSR3 15-degree and went flag-hunting. His Pro V1 took two small bounces and rolled to 2 feet, 8 inches. “Anytime you hit two 3-woods inside 10 feet you're being pretty aggressive,” he told the media after the round. “Those were two of the greatest shots I ever hit.” “I had the exact same number both times and in the exact same wind. I just had to hold a little 3-wood. And it was 257 both times. I just had to get it up in the air and hold it and I did it pretty well.” Hodges on his TSR driver: “It’s really added some distance to my game and I’ve really got accuracy with it, too. So that’s the best of both worlds.” “Feel-wise, there’s a little more feel off the face (with TSR). Kind of more like you can hear it and see it come off. It comes off pretty hot. It's still solid in the middle, but the misses kind of seemed like it stays on the golf course a little better. Golf’s a game of misses. You've heard that a million times. But if my misses can stay in the fairway or closer to where I’m looking, you’re going to play better golf.” Hodges on his TSR fairway: “Forgiveness, long off the tee. When you need to, you can launch it high and land it soft. This club has been unreal.” HODGES BRINGS NEW GOLO 6 PUTTER TO WINNER’S CIRCLE Lee Hodges gained more than six shots (+6.196) on the field with his NEW Scotty Cameron GOLO 6 tour prototype putter, a new model he put in play for the first time this season at the Waste Management Open. The rounded compact mallet, with a mid-bend shaft and new dual-milled face technology, is sized in between the previous GOLO 5 and 7 models. “Biggest thing players like is the round shape combined with a really clean top line,” said Scotty Cameron tour rep Brad Cloke. “What that does is it gives players some freedom on big, breaking putts when they get on some slopey greens on tours. Lee Hodges is one player that mentions that since going to the GOLO 6, that has helped him with breaking putts, helps him kind of see the line, feel the line a little bit better as opposed to getting locked in.” LPGA | The Amundi Evian Championship Celine Boutier (Pro V1x) claimed her first career major championship title in a runaway, posting a final round 3-under 68 to finish at 14 under, six shots clear of second place for the largest margin of victory in a women’s major in eight years. Conquering high winds, precarious hole locations and firm conditions, Boutier was the only player to shoot all four rounds in the 60’s (66-69-67-68), making 19 birdies while surrendering just five bogeys all week. Boutier, who got her Pro V1x up-and-down 75% of the time (12 of 16) around the Evian Resort Golf Club, now leads the LPGA Tour in both Scrambling and Bogey Avoidance for the year. It marked the second win of 2023 and fourth career LPGA title for Boutier, who became the first French player to win on home soil at the Evian Championship. “It's everything,” Boutier said. “Like I said, it's definitely like the biggest dream of mine. If I was going to win one tournament it had to be Evian. Yeah, I just really did not expect it to be this week.” www.instagram.com/.../ CHAMPIONS | The Senior Open Alex Cejka (Pro V1x) birdied the second hole of an all-Titleist golf ball playoff to earn his first Senior Open and third career senior major championship title after conquering a week of extreme conditions. On a second consecutive day in which no player was able to break par around the wind- and rain-swept Royal Porthcawl Golf Club, Cejka shot a final round 76 to post +5 for the week and force extra holes with Padraig Harrington (Pro V1) . After both players traded birdies on the first extra hole, Cejka’s two-putt birdie on the second clinched the title. “I can't believe I'm standing with the trophy here,” Cejka said. “Seeing all those great names on the trophy, coming in here with all the pictures and everything, all the guys who won it before me, now holding it myself, it's surreal.” KORN FERRY TOUR | NV5 Invitational presented by Old National Bank Titleist Brand Ambassador Trace Crowe earned his first career Korn Ferry Tour title, emerging from a two-hole playoff. Crowe shot a final round 66, his fourth score of 66 or better this week at The Glen Club (66-64-63-66), to equal the 25 under total posted by Patrick Fishburn (Pro V1) . The two exchanged birdies on the 561-yard par-5 18th on their first extra hole. On their second trip down 18, Crowe sealed the victory with a par. Gaming his Pro V1 golf ball, TSR driver and fairway, NEW T100 irons and SM9 wedges, Crowe led the field in birdies (30) and only dropped shots on four holes all week. What’s in the Bag? | Trace Crowe Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1 Driver: TSR2 10.0° Fairway Metal: TSR3 13.5° Irons: NEW T100 4-9 Wedges: Vokey Design SM9 46.10F, 50.08F, 54.10S, 60.08M SUNSHINE TOUR | FNB Eswatini Challenge Peter Karmis (Pro V1x) claimed his seventh career Sunshine Tour title, turning in a final round 2-under 70 to win by one shot. The 42-year-old opened the week at the Nkonyeni Lodge and Golf Estate with a 6-under 66, following it up with back-to-back rounds of 70 to reach his winning 10-under total. Five of the six players finishing T3 or better played a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, and 82% of the field (100 players) relied on a Titleist golf ball for the week. AMATEUR | U.S. Junior Amateur Championship The 2023 U.S. Junior Amateur Champion, gaming his Pro V1 golf ball, closed out the championship match in style, making birdie on the 35th and 36th holes to win 2-up and clinch the title. The winner shot rounds of 74-70 in stroke-play qualifying to earn a spot in match play, before defeating six different opponents over 118 holes on his path to victory. Saturday’s 36-hole final was a back-and-forth match, as just five holes were tied in the first 18. Weather pushed the match’s conclusion to Sunday after 25 holes, with the eventual champion 1-up at the restart. Five more holes were traded back and forth before the winner’s back-to-back birdies on Nos. 17 and 18 to close out his opponent. With the win, the champion receives exemptions into the 2024 U.S. Open to be held at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club’s Course No. 2 as well as the 2023 and 2024 U.S. Amateur Championships (Cherry Hills Country Club and Hazeltine National Golf Club, respectively). TITLEIST TOPS COUNTS AT U.S. JUNIOR Titleist was the overwhelming #1 golf ball and top choice of players in all major equipment categories at the U.S. Junior Amateur. Of the 264 players that teed it up at the Daniel Island Club, more of the game’s best juniors used Titleist golf balls , drivers , fairways , hybrids (T1) , utility irons , irons , wedges and putters than any other brand, with all four semifinalists playing a Titleist Pro V1 and three of the four trusting Titleist equipment from tee to green: The #1 ball in golf is the #1 choice of players competing on the game’s biggest stages. More than 80 percent of the field chose to play a Titleist golf ball with 214 players (81.1%) gaming a Pro V1 , Pro V1x or Pro V1x Left Dash golf ball, including seven of the championship’s eight quarterfinalists and all four semifinalists. That’s 10 times more than the nearest competitor (21/8%). Titleist was the most played driver with 118 players (45% of the field), building further upon the momentum of the Titleist Speed Project and the performance of Titleist drivers on the PGA TOUR and at every level of competitive golf. The U.S. Junior’s most popular driver model, played by more than one-quarter of the field? TSR3 (67 players). Titleist was also top choice in fairway metals (120/38%) and hybrids (29/35%/T1). Three of the four semifinalists had a TSR driver and fairway in the bag. Sixty percent of the utility irons in play were Titleist models (85), more than six times the nearest competitor (14/10%). The clear favorite among U.S. Junior competitors is T200 . Three of the four semifinalists gamed Titleist irons, the PGA TOUR’s longstanding most played irons, with a total of 101 Titleist iron sets in play (38.3%) this week in South Carolina, compared to 52 (20%) for the nearest competitor. The most trusted model at the U.S. Junior, as well as on the PGA TOUR? T100 . The most trusted wedge for nearly two decades running on the PGA TOUR, Vokey Design gap, sand, and lob wedges accounted for 59% (466) of the wedges in the field and more than all other brands combined. Scotty Cameron (110/42%) was once again the field’s most trusted putter brand, compared to 58 (22%) for the nearest competitor (49), with three of the four semifinalists using a Scotty. The most popular models in play at Daniel Island: Phantom X 5.5 and Newport 2 . AMATEUR | Pacific Coast Amateur Championship Making his second-ever Elite Amateur Golf Series appearance, the winner of the 56th Pacific Coast Amateur Championship trusted his Pro V1 golf ball en route to a final round 62 and a victory in extra holes. The champion, whose bogey-free 8-under final round matched the competitive course record at Capilano Golf and Country Club, traded pars with his opponent on the first playoff hole before two-putting for birdie on the second to clinch the win. By tournament’s end, he was one of just four players to shoot four rounds under par (69-69-67-62, -13). ... #TeamTitleist

I was at my course (Vespra Hills) in Barrie this morning and met up with Luke who was setting up for a day of fittings for the 2023 Titleist T Series Irons. I got a chance to try out a few of the irons while he was waiting for his first booked appointment. I like the look and feel of the new irons. The jury is out right now as to whether I should stick with stiff or go to regular flex shafts. I am still recovering from a severe shoulder injury from last fall so my swing is still in flux but I will say that I was impressed enough that I will likely book a fitting for this fall once the shoulder has gained som stability allowing me to go through a proper fitting process... Great to meet Luke ! The fitters from Titleist are all a truly friendly and professional group :) If you are ready for a new set of irons - This new set of T series Irons are worth checking out !!!

Hello all! I have a fitting scheduled in a couple of weeks with my eyes set on the new T series irons and I was curious if anyone new where I could find the specs (loft's, lie's, etc)? I'm being antsy, I know, but I want to go ahead and get my wedges beforehand to fill distance gaps between PW and GW. Anyone know where to find the specs? Thanks!

Managed to book a fitting session for the new T-series irons with Graeme Noblett at Craigielaw National Fitting Centre yesterday, and it was great. The new irons look amazing and feel amazing to hit. T100 irons were solid but the T200’s, were so easy to hit. Even with 1/2” shorter shafts, the stronger lofted 5-iron was going further than my current 4-iron and gave better shot dispersion. Fitting Specification: T200 3G 5-GW Loft / Lie: Standard Shaft: AMT Tour White S300 -0.5" Grip: MCC Plus4 Align Midsize

As a Master Club Fitter, I can honestly say that this is the best T-Series iron line up ever. From where I sit, when you add the new T-Series to the success of the ProV1, TSRs, SM9s and Scottys, you have the strongest, highest performing golf equipment line up in history. Why? - The new T100 continues to be one of the most consistent and best feeling irons on the market! If you prefer the look and feel of a blade, but need more forgiveness, this may be the perfect club! - While the 2021 T100s was without a doubt one of my favorite irons of all time, the increased forgiveness in the T150 makes it even better. With its compact package and incredible feel, the T150 was my first choice,...until I hit the 2023 T200! -When it comes to a players' distance iron, the T200 is simply magical and the best overall performing iron I have ever hit. It is drop dead gorgeous, yielded a flatline ball speed increase of 4 mph, an 8-yard increase in carry distance, and a 4 degree increase in land angle!! - Last but not least is the T350. The incredible forgiveness, insane ball speed and awesome feel, makes the T350 an absolute game changer. Anyone can play this iron! The T350 will inhale market share and likely become the number one selling game improvement iron worldwide. #TSeries @Titleist - Beau

Currently playing the AMT White Tour S300's. I'm looking for feedback regarding shafts that may be easier to play than the AMT's. I like the shaft but they feel rigid at times...my home course is Bermuda turf that plays soft and thick in the fairways...think velcro. Looking for ideas of what to try when fitted for the new T-series Irons. Have you played the AMT's? Have you moved on to something else? What options should I look at? Cheers, Dr. K

This year has been a year of trial and error for me. Physical therapy for my lower back due to scoliosis trying to develop a stronger core and taking pressure off my spine and decrease the pain. It has been effective in increasing my flexibility with some less pain and medication. Have taken steps with lessons to slow down my golf swing to take even more pressure off the back. Lately breathing has been an issue. Asked my coach if it could be affecting my iron play. Seems when I need to hit a short iron, I seem to loose focus, because I just cannot breathe thru my nose. The humidity has already arrived along with the tourists. He said absolutely. Always looking for anything that can help physically and medically. Nasal blockage, one almost completely closed, and had reconstructive surgery on Wednesday. To many broken noses playing basketball over the years. Already seeing some results. Supposed to go back to see my surgeon on July 10th to have the splints taken out and the brace removed. My boss has had this and said he wished he had had it done years ago. Hope to be back on the course on Friday, July 14th, if all goes as expected. Has been one of those years. Things happen, part of the circle of life. Am waiting on the T series release, so I can work on the new T350s and get ready for the TT event in November. Hakuna matata.

Once golf was complete, we enjoyed some lunch and refreshments before tuning into a swing clinic hosted by Michigan Golf Hall of Famer, David Kendall. Before our final activities of the day, Lieutenant Col. Dan Rooney, founder of American Dunes, addressed the group inspiring us with his legendary storytelling and impactful mission. This was just what we needed to pump a little more adrenaline into the group as the final teams prepared for a 13-team shootout. Teams made their way to the 16 th hole to battle it out for the top-tier prize, including a Titleist golf bag , custom golf balls , and a new pair of FootJoy shoes .

PGA TOUR | U.S. Open WYNDHAM CLARK WINS U.S. OPEN, FIRST MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIP Titleist Brand Ambassador Wyndham Clark entered the history books with an unwavering tee-to-green performance at The Los Angeles Country Club, trusting his Pro V1x golf ball and Titleist equipment to his first major title and second victory in 42 days. The 29-year-old, gaming his TSi3 driver, T200 utility, 620 CB irons and Vokey Design SM9 wedges, was the only player to finish in double-digits under par (10 under), posting rounds of 64-67-69-70 to win by one shot and hold off a trio of major champions including Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith . Clark, who broke through for his first PGA TOUR victory at last month’s Wells Fargo Championship, gained more than five shots off the tee (+5.44/2nd) and nearly four shots (3.92/7th) around the green, while leading the field in proximity to the hole on shots around the green (5’9’’), more than 4 feet better than the field average (9'11"). What’s in the Bag? | Wyndham Clark Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1x Driver: TSi3 9.0° | Accra TZ Six ST 60 M5 Utility Iron: T200 3 iron (utility build) | Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw White 100HY X Irons: 620 CB 4-9 irons | True Temper Dynamic Gold X7 Wedges: Vokey Design SM9 46.10F, 52.12F, 56.10S, WedgeWorks 60A wedges | True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 CLARK ON HIS PRO V1x GOLF BALL www.youtube.com/watch “Honestly, one of the most important things in a player’s bag is the golf ball. If you don’t have control of that, then it doesn’t matter how you’re swinging, how the clubs are made, whatever. The golf ball is so important, and that’s ultimately what goes into the hole. Having faith and trusting your golf ball is huge.” “I play [Pro V1x] because it’s kind of the perfect combination for me of launch and spin… I'm a low spin player, I have a lot of speed, but I don't spin the ball very much. And the Pro V1x, especially with my irons and driver, spins at the numbers that I want. Also, I think it's great around the greens. So I’ve always been looking for spin. And this Pro V1x gives me exactly what I need.” “The spin means the most to me, because I’m a low spin player, so I need the spin to help keep the ball in the air, to be able to control it better around the greens. And that's the most important thing for me. And especially out on Tour, you need to be able to have the ball to stop very quick, and that's what this ball does.” “What’s unique in our game is you can get the ball and your equipment dialed into the exact thing that you need. And with Titleist having different [models], I was able to find one that with my irons, spun perfectly, and with my driver, spun perfectly. And around the greens, I was able to stop it quick and do everything I wanted with it.” “When I tee it up, I feel very confident with my golf ball. I never feel like it’s going to fail me. And that’s huge. It’s one variable I can just check off the list that I know is not going to keep me from being the best player that I can be.” NOW WORLD NO. 13, CLARK CONTINUES RISE AFTER SWITCH TO TITLEIST CLUBS www.youtube.com/watch Clark made his first PGA TOUR start of 2022 (The American Express) with a brand new bag of Titleist equipment, having played competitive clubs through his last event of ‘21 (RSM Classic). Over that offseason, Clark visited the Titleist Performance Institute to get dialed in to his new setup. In January of ‘22, when he teed off in the first round of the AmEx, Clark was ranked 249th in the Official World Ranking. Forty-six starts later, following his first major championship and two wins in his last four events, Clark has climbed to his highest position ever at No. 13. In his last nine starts, Clark has finished 6th or better five times. Clark finished the 2020-21 season ranked 155th in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (-.364). After his U.S. Open win, he is currently 19th in that same statistic (+1.030). One of the most impactful changes was his driver. Playing a competitive model, Clark ended the 2020-21 campaign at 117th in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, finishing with a negative strokes gained total (-.015). After putting his TSi3 9.0 model in play, he finished the following season 61 spots higher and gaining strokes off the tee (+.209). “I use this driver because it’s so consistent. My misses are incredible and that’s big for me...,” he said. “When you miss with the Titleist it stays within the parameters that I need to play good golf. And that’s ultimately why I use Titleist clubs, especially this driver.” This week at LACC, Clark finished second in SG: Off the Tee, gaining more than five shots (+5.44). CLARK PUTS ON SHORT GAME CLINIC WITH SM9 WEDGES www.youtube.com/watch Around LACC’s daunting green complexes, Clark relied on his Vokey Design SM9 wedges to gain nearly four shots (3.92/7th) on the field, while ranking first in proximity to the hole on shots around the green (5’9’’), more than 4 feet better than the field average (9'11"). Said Clark on his four SM9’s (46.10F, 52.12F, 56.10S, WedgeWorks 60A): “I use the SM9s, these are incredible. Vokey's done a great job in creating a wedge that launches at the launch you want, which is kind of a lower launch, but with a ton of spin. And that’s what all of us out here strive and try to get with our wedges is that lower launch that fights through the wind. But then when it lands, it is really receptive.” “In the 46, I use the 10F and then the same thing pretty much with the 52, I use the F Grind, which is a little touch more bounce, so that I’m very shallow. And so when I try to hit a low trap draw or a high soft wedge, it reacts the same and doesn't dig. “The 56, I have the 10S which is 10 degrees of bounce and the S Grind, which has a touch less than my other wedges, 46 and 52. This is a very versatile club for me, has a ton of spin and I’m able to attack both front and backs pins with this. “The most important club for me, probably in my bag, is this A grind. I use the SM9 60 degree A grind, which is a low bounce 60, which I think is very versatile. And I'm able to – on tight lies, rough, wet lies, firm lies, whatever it is – I can hit the shot I want. And with the amount of spin I want, trajectory and everything. So these SM9s are I think the best wedges ever made.” Said Vokey Rep Aaron Dill on Clark’s lob wedge: “The 60A was a co-design project with Geoff Ogilvy. That's how it started. It was based off of Australian Sand Belt golf courses – firm and tight. It's essentially an L grind with a ribbon removed, a smooth, fast moving wedge. It's a really low bounce, close sitting wedge, built for firm and fast conditions. “One of the things that he really values is trajectory management, meaning he wants to launch it low. He’ll play it three-quarter shots, he’ll play it half shots, but mainly it’s kind of his greenside short game club that he’ll use a lot and it’s just become a good friend for him because he feels like he can slide into the ball easily when things are cut tight on conditions.” TITLEIST IS #1 BALL AT U.S. OPEN FOR 75th CONSECUTIVE YEAR www.youtube.com/watch For the 75th year in a row, Titleist was the most played golf ball at the U.S. Open, continuing a streak that began in 1949 at Medinah Country Club. Of the 156 players that teed it up this week at The Los Angeles Country Club, 106 (68%) played a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x model, more than five times the nearest competitor with 21 (13%), according to Darrell Survey. That included three of the top four finishers, including champion Wyndham Clark (Pro V1x), and Cameron Smith (Pro V1x). Clark is the fifth multiple winner this season on the PGA TOUR, a list that also includes fellow Titleist golf ball players Max Homa (Pro V1) and Tony Finau (Pro V1 Left Dot). NEW T-SERIES MOMENTUM CONTINUES AT LACC The NEW Titleist T-Series irons made their major debut at LACC, with several players gaming the new models for the first time – including Titleist Brand Ambassadors Cameron Smith and Tom Kim . Smith, who closed in 3-under 67 to finish fourth, gained more than five strokes (+5.08) on the field with his new NEW T100 5-9 irons in the bag. Kim, who added a NEW T200 3 iron and T100 4-9 irons, earned the best major finish (T8) of his career while ending the week 4th in Strokes Gained: Approach, gaining more than seven shots (+7.48) on the field. A total of 49 players (31%) had Titleist irons in the bag this week at LACC, 20 more than the nearest competitor. Titleist is the longstanding most played iron on the PGA TOUR. TITLEIST IS MOST PLAYED DRIVER AT U.S. OPEN; 2017 MASTERS CHAMP ADDS TSR The 2017 Masters Champion teed off at LACC with a new Titleist TSR3 9.0° driver in the bag, gaining +1.72 strokes on the field tee to green while hitting 75 percent of his fairways (T14). He made the move to TSR3 from a competitive model. The most played driver on the PGA TOUR, Titleist was also the top choice of players at the U.S. Open with 49 players (31%), 12 more than the nearest competitor. GORDON SARGENT WINS LOW AM HONORS Titleist Brand Ambassador Gordon Sargent posted rounds of 69-71-75-69 to win low amateur honors, becoming just the sixth amateur to card two rounds in the 60s at a U.S. Open (and first since Viktor Hovland in 2019). Sargent, playing a NEW Pro V1 golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment, made 19 birdies (T2) over 72 holes at LACC while also finishing third in Strokes Gained Approach (+2.89). This was his first week gaming his NEW T200 3 iron. “It’s cool. It's kind of what your goal as an amateur to be the low am, especially with so many (19) here this week. It means a lot and gives me a lot of confidence,” he said.

Castillo, playing a NEW Pro V1 golf ball, TSR3 driver, Titleist irons, and Vokey wedges, went out in 30 Sunday en route to a final round 66 to force the playoff. For the week, he turned in four rounds of 67 or lower (67-62-66-66). Castillo ranked fifth in driving distance for the week (326.6 yards) and got his Pro V1 golf ball up-and-down over 80% of the time (13/16, T10). The victory comes just two weeks after Castillo’s final collegiate appearance, where he helped his team to their first NCAA Division I title in 22 years. Sixteen of the top 22 finishers in Kansas played a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, including Kyle Jones (NEW Pro V1x) who finished T2.

Maguire played her final six holes in 6 under after going 2-3-3-3-3-4, seizing control of the tournament and closing it out with a two-shot victory. In the final round, she hit 17 of 18 greens and surrendered zero bogies. Maguire had finished runner-up at the Meijer LPGA Classic for two consecutive years before breaking through on Sunday. Eleven of the top 12 finishers this week on the LPGA Tour teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball at Blythefield Country Club. MAGUIRE ON HER PRO V1 GOLF BALL “Really like the feel of it around the greens, the way it spins, I know exactly what it does off the tee and control into the greens is probably the biggest thing for me, distance wise and spin control.” “I've (played a Titleist golf ball) all up through my junior golf, amateur golf, college golf. It worked pretty well for me there, so absolutely no reason to change when I turned pro. And like I said, trust is a massive thing so I trust what my golf ball does for me and that’s a lot of peace of mind I have on the golf course, knowing exactly how my golf ball is going to react on the greens.” “I think as professional golfers, we travel the world, lots of different golf courses, lots of different grasses, wind conditions, all of that. So ultimately you want a ball that’s going to perform in all conditions. You don't want to have to be switching depending on the golf course or the conditions. So that's one of the reasons I like the Pro V1. Good control in the wind, not too spiny and have that consistency with my distances and spin around the greens – it’s not too spiny when the greens are soft, but also enough spin when the greens are firm to have that control.” CHAMPION PLAYS VOKEY WEDGES The champion of the Meijer LPGA Classic played two Vokey Wedges on her way to her second career LPGA victory. Each week, she carries a Vokey Design SM9 54.14F and 60-degree lob wedges (60.08M or 60.12D depending on course conditions). PGA TOUR CANADA | Royal Beach Victoria Open Étienne Papineau (Pro V1x) earned his first PGA Tour Canada victory, turning in rounds of 64-65-69-64 to complete a runaway five-shot victory. Papineau’s final round featured six birdies and zero bogeys on his way to claiming the season-opening event. ... #TeamTitleist

PGA TOUR | The Memorial Tournament Viktor Hovland made a clutch par on the first hole of an all- Pro V1 playoff to claim his fourth career victory on the PGA TOUR. The longtime Pro V1 player made four back-nine birdies coming down the stretch Sunday, including two over his final four holes to for a closing 2-under 70 (and 7 under total) to force extra holes with Denny McCarthy (Pro V1) . With his winning par on Muirfield Village’s difficult par-4 18th, Hovland became just the third player with wins in each of the last four seasons on the PGA TOUR. For the week, Hovland ranked 12th in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green and 19th in Greens in Regulation. He made 19 birdies over the four days (T2) and recorded zero double bogeys. HOVLAND ON HIS PRO V1 “I just always grew up with the Titleist Pro V1 feel and always loved it. There was not a thought in my head that occurred, ‘Oh, I should maybe try a different ball.’ Why would I? I was really happy with the consistency. I think there’s always been this consensus that you go in the pro shop and you buy a sleeve of balls, you’re going to get the same ball as the last time you bought the sleeve of balls. I think that consistency gives you that reassurance that you know what you’re going to get.” “It's just something that I’ve always played. I remember growing up in Norway when we would in the summer at night, we would go out and fish for lake balls and try to find as many Pro V1's as possible. So it's just kind of always been ingrained to play the Pro V1." “It's been number one for so long. I don't think that's a coincidence. So knowing that I have the best product when I go out there and play, I think that gives me confidence. I don't have to wonder or think I'm giving shots away before I've even started the round. So I think that's a nice thing to have with you.” RUNNER-UP LEADS FIELD IN PUTTING WITH SCOTTY CAMERON PUTTER Gaming his Scotty Cameron GoLo 7 tour prototype putter, the runner-up at the Memorial Tournament led the field in Strokes Gained putting. He holed several key putts coming down the stretch including a 13-footer for par on No. 15 and a 7-footer for par on No. 16. For the week, he gained over 11 strokes (11.279) on the field on the greens, while finishing 3rd in Putts per GIR (1.579) and T4 in Total Putts (25.5). NEW TITLEIST IRONS DEBUT ON PGA TOUR The NEW Titleist T-Series irons , the next generation of the PGA TOUR’s most played irons, made their debut this week at the Memorial Tournament. Thirteen players made the immediate move to at least one of the new models: Hayden Buckley : T100 4-PW irons Lanto Griffin : T100 4-9 irons Brian Harman : T200 3 & 5 iron Lee Hodges : T100 4-6 irons Beau Hossler : T200 5 iron S.H.

That’s what you get with the T100.” Titleist irons have been the longstanding top choice of the best players in the world. In each of the last nine seasons (and 18 of the last 19), more players on the PGA TOUR have had Titleist irons in their bags than any other brand. Titleist’s tour seeding and validation for the new models continues this week on the LPGA and Korn Ferry Tour. In the following weeks, the process will continue across the worldwide pro tours. PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS | Principal Charity Classic Gaming his NEW Titleist Pro V1 golf ball, Stephen Ames collected his fifth career win on the PGA TOUR Champions and third victory in just 10 starts this year.

STRICKER CONTINUES STRONG PLAY Steve Stricker (Pro V1x) turned in rounds of 64-68-68 to finish at 16 under, one shot behind Ames’ winning total. Stricker has finished in the top 10 in each of his 10 Champions starts this season and has yet to finish worse than T8. He has three victories – including two Champions Tour majors – as well as four runner-up finishes and currently sits atop the Charles Schwab Cup standings. DP WORLD TOUR | Porsche European Open The winner of the Porsche European Open had three Vokey Design wedges in the bag – SM9 50.12F, 54.10S, WedgeWorks 60T – on his way to earning his first career DP World Tour victory.

AMATEUR | NCAA D1 Men's Championship Senior Ricky Castillo – playing a NEW Pro V1 golf ball and TSR3 driver among his Titleist setup – went undefeated during match play at Grayhawk Golf Club to help his team win the Division I National Championship, the team’s first national title in 22 years. Of the five players on the winning team, four played a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball – including the men’s individual National Champion (Pro V1x). Two players gamed a TSR3 driver and Titleist iron sets, and three of the five had at least one Vokey Design wedge in their winning setups. The individual champ played a Vokey SM9 60T. Of the 156 players who arrived at Grayhawk to compete for a National Championship, Titleist was the top choice in every major equipment category. 137 players (88%) teed up a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball at Grayhawk Golf Club, more than 15 times the nearest competitor. The most played driver at the NCAA Championship was Titleist with 40 percent (62) of competitors gaming a Titleist driver. Fifty-eight of those drivers were new TSR models. No brand had more fairways (59/T1) or hybrids (12/T1) in play than Titleist. There were 66 sets of Titleist irons in play, 19 more than the nearest competitor. Titleist also accounted for more than half the utility irons in play this week (60, 56%). There were 244 Vokey Design gap, sand and lob wedges in play, more than all other wedges combined. On the greens, 43 players trusted a Scotty Cameron putter, the most popular putter brand at Grayhawk.

Hey Team Titleist! The tour seeding and validation process for our NEW T-Series irons is officially underway! This week at The Memorial Tournament, #TeamTitleist was able to experience the next generation of the most played iron on the PGA TOUR for the first time. Join us on the range at Muirfield Village to hear what players had to say: www.instagram.com/.../ www.instagram.com/.../ www.instagram.com/.../ First up: Lee Hodges . From the Tour Truck to the range, we joined Hodges on Monday morning to watch (and capture!) every moment of his first experience with his NEW T100 4, 5 and 6 irons. (Lee carries a mixed set of T100s and CBs.) www.youtube.com/watch “That 6-iron might be the best club I’ve ever it in my whole life,” Hodges said after his first few swings with the new club. On Thursday at Muirfield - his first competitive round with the new models - he gained over four strokes on the field on approach shots alone. It’s safe to say he’s a fan. Lanto Griffin , who also games T100 irons (4-9), commented on the feel of the new models. “I mean, we hit balls all the time,” Griffin said. “So we have a pretty good idea (if) we put a good swing on it, and we get a good feel if we look up and the ball's doing exactly what we felt, then that's a good club. That's what you get with the T100.” What stood out to T100 player Peter Malnati about the new models? The dispersion of his mishits. “See that's spectacular. That was a poor contact push and I've hit it to 12 feet, 15 feet like that. ... The best praise I can give of these irons is that was a lousy shot, and I got a birdie putt that I'm gonna go have a chance to make.” Malnati also tested a NEW T350 iron... and after just one strike, he liked what he saw. www.instagram.com/.../ A N EW U•505 utility iron made its way into the hands of Brian Harman , as he striped one 2-iron after another: www.instagram.com/.../ Harman also tested a NEW T200 3 iron, giving us the ultimate mic drop after just a few hits: “That’s a nice golf club right there.” Make sure to stay tuned to all of our social channels as NEW T-Series continue to make their way onto professional tours worldwide.

Anyone see the post today about the new T series irons release? They are in tour players hands for feedback now…I think they did a great job getting them all to blend well. Makes it very easy to do a blended set pretty much anywhere in the set…new names too…T100s are now T150s, and T300 are T350…not sure where T300 went! www.titleist.com/t-series-irons

The next generation of the PGA TOUR’s most played irons – Titleist T-Series – will make their debut this week at the Memorial Tournament. Titleist irons have been the longstanding top choice of the best players in the world. In each of the last nine seasons (and 18 of the last 19), more players on the PGA TOUR have had Titleist irons in their bags than any other brand. This week’s introduction of the new T-Series T100, T150, T200, T350 models marks the start of Titleist’s tour seeding and validation process for the new clubs. The design and development of Titleist golf equipment is rooted in the collaboration of Titleist R&D and the game’s best players. From Jordan Spieth “Titleist has always been achieving, it seems like, perfection in the details,” said Jordan Spieth , who has played T100 irons since they were first introduced. “It’s always been a great product and it’s just trying to figure out that little bit of an edge (with each new generation). There’s never any corners cut. It takes what it takes and... it eventually comes from some of the input we have but also what they see across the board with all their players." “It seems like everything is taken in... Like, ‘OK, that makes sense. We’ll do something a little bit different here or there.’ And it’s never just the same thing. They’ve always looked for a little bit of a different angle, and I think that that’s really cool when you’re partnering and trusting those clubs to do your job." “I’ve always played Titleist irons since I could have a full set of clubs. And to be able to feel like ones are made in the image and likeness that I’ve made comments on, is super cool for someone who loves the game like myself.” What's Next Over the next three practice days at Muirfield Village, Titleist Tour Representatives will be working with players, fitting them into the new iron models and gathering their performance feedback. Next week, players on the LPGA and Korn Ferry Tour will get their first opportunity to play the new irons in competition. In the following weeks, the process will continue across the worldwide professional tours. Stay tuned to Titleist.com and Titleist's social channels ( Instagram , Facebook , Twitter ) for updates as this process continues over the coming weeks across the worldwide professional tours. ... #TeamTitleist

Hey All, in a position most of us married men haven’t experienced, I was approved to get new irons. Currently gaming 718 Ap2 with KBS C-Taper + and couldn’t be any happier. Have put in the work over the fall and winter to get prepared for competition (tourneys) this year and wondering if it would be valid to make the move now, or game my irons this year and hold off till the new drop comes out? If going by typical schedule, new irons are slated to come out next year…. All thought and opinions are welcome. www.titleist.com/.../mfjmvcl33uyc6mum5fwy

The precision, feel and playability of Titleist T100 , T100•S and T200 irons are now available in an all-black Titanium Carbide Vapor finish, bringing a new look to the most played irons on the PGA TOUR. Available for pre-sale beginning Feb. 23 and in golf shops worldwide on March 3, the new T-Series Black irons utilize an improved heat-treated binding process to deliver a stylish, tour-inspired look that players love with an even more durable, long-lasting finish. The new Titanium Carbide Vapor finish is matched with True Temper AMT Black, AMT Tour White and Project X LZ shafts that have an onyx powder coat finish. All-black Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips complete the set-up for a strikingly clean look. “New T-Series irons have proven to be the most advanced irons we’ve ever made,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “The tour-inspired shaping combines with ultimate forgiveness and feel to give golfers the looks and performance needed to play their best. T-Series Black irons take it to the next level with a new Titanium Carbide Vapor finish that looks incredible and is more durable than ever.” T-SERIES BLACK IRONS ON TOUR Titleist T100 irons continue to be a top choice of tour players around the world, with more players on the PGA TOUR using T100’s than any other model. Titleist has been the most played iron on the PGA Tour for 17 of the last 18 years, including each of the last eight seasons. Among those players currently gaming T100 Black irons are Cameron Smith , Lanto Griffin , C.T. Pan and Callum Tarren . “I love the finish,” said Smith, who has recorded multiple victories with his T100 Black models in the bag including THE PLAYERS and The Open Championship at St. Andrews. “The new black finish is a little bit more durable – they’ve definitely stood the test of time. I just like how they look. I think they look a little bit smaller. This lets me narrow in a little bit more and obviously the less glare and stuff like that off the sun, helps that a lot.” T100 Technology As the ultimate modern tour iron, and most played iron model on the PGA TOUR, T100 irons offer extreme precision and versatility with unrivaled feel. With a tour-contoured sole and variable bounce design, T100 irons are designed to produce the best turf interaction in the game. T100 irons feature dense D18 tungsten weights that allow for maximum control over CG placement, and a fully forged construction brings together the forgiveness and feel needed by the game’s best. T100 Black Specifications (Custom Only): RH, LH availability (4-PW) Finish: Titanium Carbide Vapor T100•S Technology Retaining the key features of T100, but with 2-degree stronger lofts and a new Muscle Channel, the T100•S iron is built to be the faster tour iron. For players seeking a tour-inspired profile and feel with added speed, T100•S is the complete package. T100•S features the same forged construction and dense D18 tungsten weights as T100, and with even more weight savings from the added Muscle Channel, T100•S has an even lower CG placement promoting optimized launch conditions. T100•S Black Specifications: RH, LH availability (4-PW) Finish: Titanium Carbide Vapor Shaft: Project X LZ Onyx Grip: Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 Black T200 Technology Built as a tour-ready distance iron, T200 irons improve upon the technological advantages of the previous generation and feature a new compact and sleek shape. T200’s multi-material, hollow body construction provides controlled distance and launch, while improved Max Impact technology and forged L-Face inserts work together to retain speed on off-center strikes and create a fast, solid feel and sound. The distance and forgiveness advantages from T200 are worked into a player-preferred profile, as T200 irons feature the same minimal offset as T100 and T100•S as well as a shorter blade length and thinner top line than its predecessor. Titleist’s most advanced iron ever combines maximum performance with a tour-inspired look and feel.

I just placed an order for a set of T100S irons, but unfortunately the estimated lead time is currently at 12 weeks. Would love feedback from you Titleist veterans--should I keep the order or wait just a few extra months for the 2023 T-series irons to be released? This would be my first set of Titleist irons, fulfilling a dream I had when I was younger and wasn't good enough to play what was out at the time. Quit golf for over 15 years and came back in 2021 like many others. Hitting better than I ever did before and the feel of these in demos has been terrific. I absolutely LOVE the current T100/S design and only wish I'd been able to upgrade my set earlier. However, the pandemic didn't help and we recently had to deal with a big water leak and spent over $9k replacing the central AC unit. I'd purchased a TSi3 driver and TSi2 4w in Jan 2022, and have zero regrets about the TSR release months later. On one hand, Titleist designs seem timeless. On the other hand, I really do like the 2021 T100 look much more than the 2019 T100. Feeling conflicted as to what to do here and would appreciate your thoughts.

PGA TOUR | Cadence Bank Houston Open Tony Finau (Pro V1 Left Dot) became just the third PGA TOUR winner in the past 10 years to lead the field in both Greens In Regulation (77.8%) and Driving Accuracy (75%) on his way to a wire-to-wire, four-shot victory in Houston. Finau, who also led the field with 22 birdies, made four birdies on his front nine Sunday at Memorial Park to pull away from the field, eventually posting 16 under for the tournament after four rounds in the 60’s (65-62-68-69). It marked the fifth-career PGA TOUR title for Finau and third victory in his last seven starts, following his back-to-back wins at the 3M Open and the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July. It was a 1-2-3 sweep for Titleist golf ball players in Houston, with Titleist Brand Ambassadors Tyson Alexander (2nd, Pro V1) and Ben Taylor (3rd, NEW Pro V1) each rounding out the Top 3 with career-best PGA TOUR finishes. Thirteen of the 15 players who finished in the top 10 and ties played a Pro V1 or Pro V1x model. TONY FINAU ON HIS PRO V1 LEFT DOT “I think equipment starts with the golf ball, not with the clubs, not with the woods, not with any other piece of equipment,” Finuau said. “It starts with the golf ball. I’ve always been a believer in that.” “The Left Dot golf ball is right for me because I’ve always put a lot of spin on the golf ball, so it’s the lowest spinning Titleist Pro V1 that is out on the market, and right away, it caught my eye because of the ball flight. I think if you can control your ball flight, you can control the distance. And it’s been such a reliable ball flight for me from the first time that I hit it. I think the best word I can use is just reliable. I can count on the golf ball in crosswinds, into the wind, downwind. I know how far the golf ball is going to go. And that’s a great feeling to have as a professional golfer. Distance control is up there probably with the most important things when it comes to striking a golf ball and playing golf.” HOW TONY FINAU MARKS HIS PRO V1 LEFT DOT “I actually mark my Pro V1 golf ball with my kids’ initials. I have five kids. I’ll throw my wife in there sometimes as well. So the determining factor for me is if they make a couple bogeys, power lip out, whatever the case, they’re out, and I’m ready for the next kid to come into play and see if they’ll perform. And that’s pretty much it. I’m not crazy superstitious, but there does come a time where, if my kids are a little scared of the dark that day, they want to go swimming, they want to play in the beach, I’ve got to let them go and bring somebody else in that’s ready to score for me.” PGA TOUR, LPGA, DP WORLD TOUR WINNERS TRUST VOKEY T GRIND This week’s winners on the PGA TOUR, LPGA and DP World Tour each had one piece of equipment in common: A Vokey Design SM9 WedgeWorks T Grind lob wedge. The winner of the Cadence Bank Houston Open played a Vokey SM9 WedgeWorks 60T while leading the field with 77.8% GIRs. “He has told me many times that max versatility is important to him,” said Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill . “He has the ability to be steep or shallow when he wants and, one thing’s for sure, he makes great contact with lots of spin on most of his wedge shots. Since his first T grind he has been loyal to this club, occasionally testing some other higher bounce options but always returning to the T.” Titleist Brand Ambassador Nelly Korda gamed a Vokey SM9 WedgeWorks 58T in successfully defending her title at the Pelican Women’s Championship to move back to No. 1 in the world ranking. Korda, who had solely been using a 58.10 S grind as her lob wedge, added the 58T to her setup following a trip to the Titleist Performance Institute to work with Dill. “Nelly has a 58.10S and 58T that she’ll flop in and out depending on conditions or course setup. The T is a very versatile sole. So it’s low bounce and it just frees you up to get under the ball easily when things feel like they’re firm. Or maybe you’re short sided at times, maybe the greens are pitched up. Whenever you’re in those scenarios, the last thing you want to deal with is a wedge with too much bounce where you feel like you just can’t pull off those shots. And the T Grind definitely frees you up mentally and physically to hit those more difficult shots that require that loft.” The winner of the Nedbank Golf Challenge on the DP World Tour used a Vokey SM9 WedgeWorks 60T, finishing the week second in Strokes Gained: Around the Green (+1.10 per round). Inspired by Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s work with one of the game’s all-time best wedge players, the T Grind was designed for great hands and a vivid short-game imagination. Available in 58- and 60-degree lofts, it is ideal for a shallow angle of attack in firm conditions, with low bounce and a narrow crescent surface. Compared to Vokey’s L grind, it has a wider back flange which allows for lower measured bounce. Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith played a 60T in winning The Open at St Andrews, where the Vokey T grind was such a popular choice that Dill ran out of heads on the Titleist Tour Van. The T is also a favorite of Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jordan Spieth , Justin Thomas and Will Zalatoris . “I’ve had players say they feel like they can hit any shot with the T,” said Will Harvey, Vokey’s European Tour Rep . “The combination of the forward bounce for low pitch shots and the grind for the soft control shots is something needed with the vast amount of shots required on links or firmer course set ups.” TAYLOR EARNS BEST TOUR FINISH AFTER SWITCH TO NEW PRO V1 Ben Taylor put the NEW 2023 Pro V1 golf ball in play for the first time this week in Houston, recording the best finish (solo 3rd) of his PGA TOUR career (45 events). Taylor, who was previously in Pro V1 Left Dot , first played the new model during Monday’s pro-am at Memorial Park. On Tuesday, he worked with Titleist Golf Ball R&D rep Fordie Pitts on the range to confirm the performance on TrackMan. “He liked the flight he was seeing, the consistency in his spin numbers, and was excited to tee it up,” Pitts said. Taylor finished the week 4th in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green, gaining more than 10 strokes on the field (+10.683). He was 8th in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, T8 in GIR (73.61%) and 4th in Scrambling (78.95%). In addition to his NEW Pro V1, Taylor played a full bag of Titleist, including NEW TSR3 driver and fairways. What’s in Ben Taylor’s Titleist Golf Bag?

Playing a Pro V1 golf ball and 14 Titleist clubs , including a NEW TSR2 9.0° driver and NEW TSR3 13.5° and 18.0° fairways, Alexander led the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+10.99). ALEXANDER ON HIS PRO V1 “I like the softness around the greens, but definitely with driver I want to see a very penetrating ball flight. So Pro V1 kind of gives me a little bit of both, the softness around the greens and the speed that I want to see on the tee…” “Every once in a while you’ll chip a different ball on the chipping green here and it’ll be a different company and some spin a lot, some run out a lot, and it just seems a little inconsistent. Whereas when I hit one good, I know how it’s going to react. The picture and what’s happening is the same, and for me, that’s just always been Titleist.” ALEXANDER ON HIS NEW TSR2 DRIVER “Better feel, ball flight kind of tightened up a little bit and picked up some yardage. Kind of covered all the bases for me. I was expecting just kind of a minimal progression (from TSi), but yeah, we were stepping on a few and the ball speed kind of jumped up dramatically. So it was a no-brainer.” What’s in Tyson Alexander’s Titleist Golf Bag?

Korda, who started the day two shots back of the lead, made seven birdies over her final 18 holes, including birdies on Nos. 16 and 17, to successfully defend her Pelican title. “Last year I got to World No. 1 ranking after winning a major for the first time and that was really special, and then obviously going through what I’ve been through this year and regaining that World No. 1 ranking is really special as well. I’ve heard somewhere that it’s a really tight race; everyone has had an amazing year. I think for me, I just appreciate it a lot more.” What’s in Nelly Korda’s Titleist Golf Bag?

Korda’s performance off the tee was stellar all week, as she missed only one fairway over the three rounds in Florida while averaging 274 yards (282 in Round 3). Korda first put the TSR1 9.0° model in play at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship, following her initial testing session with J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, Titleist’s Director of Player Promotions , on the range at Pinnacle Country Club. “It feels really nice and it’s been a good, smooth transition,” Korda said. “I really like the trajectory, the rise and the consistency in the ball flight. And obviously when you can pick up a little bit more distance and also carry, it’s always really nice. … I am carrying it maybe a few yards further and I’m seeing five to 10 yards roll out, which will help a lot on par fives and being more aggressive on the golf course.” With TSR1’s first tour victory, combined with wins this week on the PGA TOUR Champions, Asian Tour and PGA Tour of Australasia, players using NEW TSR driver models have now won 25 times worldwide since their debut this summer. KORDA ON PRO V1 CONSISTENCY Over three windy rounds at Pelican Golf Club (the tournament was shortened to 54 holes due to Tropical Storm Nicole), Korda's ballstriking was dialed in, hitting 41 of 42 fairways and 45 of 54 greens with her Pro V1 golf ball. “Yeah, I feel like the Pro V1 is really consistent when it’s really windy out,” said Korda in July at the AIG Women’s Open. “I feel like when you play in these types of conditions, you need a trusted golf ball that you can work with around the golf course, shape it, hit it low, hit it high when you need to, hit it soft, and I feel like the Pro V1 does that the best for me.” CHAMPIONS TOUR | Charles Schwab Cup Championship Padraig Harrington (Pro V1) claimed the fourth victory of his rookie season on PGA TOUR Champions, setting the PGA TOUR Champions 72-hole scoring record with a total of 27-under 257 for an eight-shot triumph. Harrington’s final round 6-under 65 capped off a week that featured 27 birdies, one eagle, just two bogeys and four rounds of 66 or better (66-64-62-65). For the week, Harrington finished first in Scrambling, getting his Pro V1 up-and-down 94.7% of the time, and T4 in Greens in Regulation (73.6%). CHAMPION GAMES NEW TSR3 DRIVER, LEADS IN DISTANCE The winner of the 2022 Charles Schwab Cup Championship led the field in driving distance, averaging 303 yards off the tee with his NEW TSR3 9.0° driver. It marked the third victory for the champion since switching to the new model at the Open Championship. Heading into this week’s finale, he led the tour’s average driving distance at 309.1 yards, more than 10 yards longer than No. 2. “Just there’s only a couple of holes with – a lot of holes with 300-yard carries and bunkers, so the other players have to go around and I can carry it, so I’ve got an advantage off the tee that I can use here,” he said. “I feel good and comfortable on the course.” ALKER CLAIMS CHARLES SCWAB CUP Titleist golf ball player Steven Alker (Pro V1) finished solo-third at 19 under to clinch the season-long Charles Schwab Cup in his first full season on the PGA TOUR Champions circuit. His closing 3-under 68 ensured the top-five finish he needed with Harrington’s victory. Alker won four times in 2022, recorded 18 top-10 finishes and 21 top 25 finishes in 23 appearances this season. His scoring average of 68.39 ranked him first for the season, and he led in both the regular season money list and the playoff money list. KORN FERRY TOUR | Qualifying School Final Stage Q-School ended on Monday with 146 players competing for guaranteed starts on the 2023 Korn Ferry Tour schedule. Bo Hoag (Pro V1x) earned medalist honors after posting 14 under for the week, securing fully exempt status for the upcoming season. Hoag started the day five back of the lead and went out in 6-under 30 on his way to a closing 65 and one-shot victory, guaranteeing him starts in every Korn Ferry Tour event next season. Chan Kim (Pro V1) finished runner-up, earning him 12 guaranteed starts for 2023 along with the rest of the players inside the top 10 and ties. Players finishing in positions 11-40 and ties are guaranteed eight starts, while the rest of the field received conditional status.

Thomas Rosenmueller (Pro V1 ) T6. Ben Kohles (Pro V1x Left Dash) T8. Paul Peterson (Pro V1x), Pro V1 Left Dot player T10.

First Post: I am curious, have you been fitted for clubs? If so what was your handicap when you got fitted for irons, driver, etc.? Did you have a target or goal you wanted to reach before you got fitted? I have been playing for a little over a year and have been hitting a used set of clubs (All Titleist - SM6 wedges, 714 AP1 Irons 5-PW, 913 Hybrids, fairway wood and Driver. I have one new club in the bag a Scotty Cameron 5.5. My current handicap is 18 and improving every round. I hit a friends T-series irons for a round last weekend (mixed bag - T200s and T400s) with great results and loved the feel! This has prompted the question…am I ready to start upgrading? Thanks, BB www.titleist.com/.../k169vz24ax2fkszomlrh

We all have that golf buddy. The buddy that knows what White Box Golf Ball Testing is and asks if you received any in the mail yet. The buddy that takes your new TSR driver on the first tee box, puts it down in a faux address position, hands it back, and says "sheesh that thing looks good!" Typically this bond around Titleist equipment is shared between two, or a few regulars in your Saturday game. But, did you know there are hundreds of Team Titleist members just like you that meet up every year at bucket-list destinations for truly unique Titleist experiences? The crown jewel of these events is the Team Titleist Invitational and we just hosted our 7th annual gathering in Central Florida at the top-ranked Streamsong Resort . With award-winning golf, once-in-a-lifetime Titleist experiences, and a group of exceptional people that love the Titleist brand, the Team Titleist Invitational is the culmination of everything this special community is all about. Putting Reception Team Titleist members arrived at Streamsong with putters in hand and were quickly greeted with their coveted Team Titleist Invitational tee gift. The group quickly put those putters to work on The Gauntlet putting course in hopes of going low to capture the prize of a Scotty Cameron putter. The 1.2-acre putting green was the perfect venue to reconnect with old pals, make introductions to new friends, and enjoy great food with even better company. Day 1 Our first full day greeted the group with sunny skies and more goodies: a TSR valuables pouch stuffed with even more swag. Though you will find all three Streamsong courses on just about every best-courses list, the Red course unanimously leads the pack. The Coore Crenshaw design claims to "bring the drama" and it did just that with jaw-dropping views that had Team Titleist snapping pictures on every hole. The Red course alone was worth the price of admission, but the golf festivities were just getting started. Post-round activities included more fantastic eats at Restaurant 59. New York Times Bestselling Author, Tom Coyne, joined the group to provide some deeper context and signed copies of his new book, A Course Called America . The group then headed to the practice range to join Titleist Golf Club experts and up-and-coming Tour prospect, Mac Meissner to experience New TSR drivers. Meissner's insanely repeatable swing allowed Team Titleist to truly see the performance differences when bouncing between TSR2, TSR3, and TSR4 driver heads. The group wrapped up the day with a TSR Trackman long-drive competition where one Team Titleist member took home a TSR of his own with an impressive 318-yard drive. Day 2 Just 1 week after Titleist Tour Reps officially introduced the next generation Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls on TOUR , Titleist Golf Ball experts were at Streamsong resort providing the same experience to Team Titleist Invitational guests. Each attendee received 1 dozen of both 2023 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls. They were also given the inside scoop on what to expect in terms of performance before putting them to the test on Streamsong Black. The group was riding high after receiving tour-level treatment and experiencing another 18 holes of world-class golf. Right when one would start to think "how could this get any better?", Brad Faxon arrived to up the ante. Not only is Faxon a decorated PGA TOUR pro, but he's also revered as one of the best-putting instructors in the world, and he was gracious enough to lend his expertise to Team Titleist in an interactive putting clinic. Closing Festivities Closing festivities came sooner than expected as Hurricane Ian set its sights on Central Florida. That didn't keep the group from enjoying one last meal together to reminisce on the experiences had and, of course, see if they were lucky enough to take home a coveted prize. Players took home 27 prizes in the likes of Year-supplies of Pro V1 golf balls , TSR Drivers , T-Series Irons , Golf Bags , and Gear just to name a few. Although the 7 th Annual Team Titleist Invitational fell one round of golf shy of its scheduled itinerary, it was a constant sprint of golf, friends, food, and festivities that will never be forgotten. A huge thank-you to our friends at Streamsong for going the extra mile to provide an exceptional experience in extraordinary circumstances. And a gigantic thank you to the truly special individuals that are the heartbeat of the Team Titleist community. Your patience, understanding, and unwavering gratitude for the event means the world to us—and we can't wait to do it again next year. Want to experience a Team Titleist event firsthand?

Hello all! New poster her, so thought I'd throw a post out here to echo much of what everyone said about their passion for Titleist. But in addition, also just document my journey to being a hopeful member of the team. I've always played the Pro-V balls. Many have told me I pay too much for them and there are better options out there. Yet, no other option on the market is as consistent and performing. So mostly I just give them a nod and say sure maybe someday, but in my head not a chance. But I've also had MANY of the other clubs in the bag. From the Driver and Fairway woods over the years to the hybrids (Starting with the TS and TSI variants) and wedges. NONE of them can be matched in my opinion for their quality and performance. Yet, while I've owned many irons sets (quite a few different Titleist back to the DCI periods) the past few years I was playing cally Apex Pro 19 irons. They just performed for me and I really didn't think to change them much, though admittedly the T series irons had me second guessing from the first variants launched on. Well, this weekend I purchased after a good testing session the T-100s irons. WHY HAVE I WAITED SO LONG!?!? These things are absolutely amazing! So I will say that I'm definitely FULLY on the TT at this point. One thing left to complete that acheivement is replacing my Hoofer bag. :-D With that said, I wish everyone well and glad to join the ranks. Hope to post here frequently and may have a cheeky chance at testing some gear out along the way. Have a great week everyone! B

PGA TOUR | BMW Championship Titleist Brand Ambassador Patrick Cantlay won the BMW Championship for the second straight season, making birdie on the 17th hole Sunday at Wilmington Country Club on his way to a one-shot victory. Playing a Pro V1x golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment, Cantlay became the first player to successfully defend a FedEx Cup Playoffs event, following last year’s playoff victory at Caves Valley. It marked the eighth-career PGA TOUR title for Cantlay, who finished the week 14 under after four rounds in the 60’s (68-68-65-69). For the week, he finished second in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+8.821), third in SG: Off the Tee (+4.011), sixth in SG: Approach (+5.173) and T2 in Scrambling (80%). Cantlay, also the defending TOUR Championship and FedEx Cup winner, enters next week’s finale at No. 2 in the FedEx Cup rankings. What’s in Patrick Cantlay’s Titleist Golf Bag? Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1x Driver: TS3 9.5° | Mitsubishi Diamana ZF 60 TX Fairway: 915F 15.0° | Mitsubishi Diamana ZF 70 TX Hybrid: TS2 21.0° | Mitsubishi Diamana ZF 80 TX Irons: 718 AP2 (4-9) irons | True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 Tour Issue X100 Wedges: Vokey SM7 46.10F, 52.08F & SM9 56.08M (@57), WedgeWorks 60T wedges | True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S300 Putter: Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 tour prototype SEVEN IN A ROW FOR TITLEIST GOLF BALL PLAYERS With Cantlay's victory, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball players have now won seven consecutive events on the PGA TOUR and 31 times overall this season. On Sunday, Cantlay and fellow Pro V1x player Scott Stallings , who finished second by one shot, topped a leader board that featured Titleist golf ball players in six of the top-7 positions. CANTLAY ON PERFORMANCE, CONSISTENCY OF PRO V1 x www.instagram.com/.../ “Pro V1x has been the right fit for me because it's the best. I think it’s the best ball that I’ve ever played. I don’t think twice about it when I tee it up. I just know that it’s the best golf ball.” “I want the golf ball to feel consistent, so I want it to do the same thing the most amount of times over and over and over again. That way, it’s predictable. I think golf ball being a fixed variable for what I do is very important. There’s always equipment changes going on or tweaks to suit conditions or suit maybe holes in your game. And so, the golf ball being a constant opposed to also a variable is really important to me. And having it perform well when you hit it solid and when you mishit it slightly, and not seeing a big difference between spin numbers or launch numbers when you do inevitably miss a couple, that’s really important for shooting good scores.” “If you hit a 5-iron, even if you hit it out of the bunker and scuff it up a little bit, you’re still hitting the same 5-iron, so you don’t worry about that component. With golf ball, it’s not necessarily a sure thing, because it is a new golf ball every time you put it in. I might play six different golf balls in a round of golf. And so, the quality control I think is extremely important and something maybe that I take for granted, because I know how difficult it is to replicate something time after time after time. Not having even a percent difference between any of the golf balls in a dozen must be particularly difficult. It’s something that at this point, I don’t even think about. I trust that all the golf balls are exactly the same and are going to perform exactly the same. And that gives me a ton of confidence, so much so that I don’t even think about it when I switch golf balls out there.” 12 STRAIGHT WINS FOR VOKEY WEDGE PLAYERS ON PGA TOUR Playing a set of four Vokey Design wedges, Cantlay became the 12th-consecutive winner on the PGA TOUR to have at least one Vokey in the bag (and 32nd overall this season). He finished the week sixth in Strokes Gained: Approach (+5.173) and T2 in Scrambling (80%). “You’re always looking for a little edge on controlling distance and I was able to control the flight and distance really well with the SM9, and so it went straight in the bag,” said Cantlay, after making the switch to his new SM9 56.08M at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. (He put his SM9 WedgeWorks 60T in play for the first time at the Masters.) “When you’re testing a new wedge you want to see that it’s interacting with the turf the right way and is able to perform no matter what kind of shot you’re hitting. And I feel very comfortable that this wedge does that.” CANTLAY’S SUCCESS CONTINUES WITH PHANTOM X 5 A year ago at the BMW Championship, Cantlay – playing his Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 tour prototype putter – gained more strokes putting (+14.6) than any player in a single tournament since they began tracking the statistic in 2004. The success has continued throughout 2022. Heading into next week’s season finale, he ranks third in One-Putt Percentage (43.33%), while leading the TOUR in Approach Putt Performance (lag putting). He’s second in Birdie or Better Conversion Percentage at 37.21%. Cantlay was a perfect 15-for-15 from inside seven feet on Sunday and was T-4 for the week in putting from 10-15 feet (57.1%), as he made it 21 wins for Scotty Cameron players this season on the PGA TOUR, more than any other competitor. Cantlay first switched to his Phantom X 5 mid-mallet model last April at the Zurich Classic, seeking added stability through the putter’s compact wingback construction. Three starts later, he used it to win The Memorial. “A little different for me, I switched over into a mallet,” said Cantlay, who for years had played a blade-style Newport 2 GSS tour prototype. “It’s more face-balanced, so it felt just a little easier to aim and it felt a little easier to swing just straight back and straight through. Launch conditions have been really good and I’ve been making some putts.” Cantlay’s Memorial-winning Phantom X 5 featured a double bend shaft without alignment features. Following the second round of the 2021 Northern Trust, Cantlay switched into his current Phantom X 5 configuration with a sight line on the topline (like the stock model). Around that time, Cantlay also began marking a line on his Pro V1x golf ball to help with alignment on short putts. DP WORLD TOUR | D+D Real Czech Masters Max Kieffer (Pro V1) won his first DP World Tour title, posting a final round 6-under 66 including a birdie on the 17th hole to win by one shot. Kieffer led the field in Strokes Gained: Around the Green (+1.86 per round), while finishing seventh in Scrambling (83.33%). Eleven of the top-12 finishers trusted a Titleist golf ball in Prague, while three of the top five gamed a NEW TSR driver, including Titleist Brand Ambassadors Tapio Pulkannen (TSR2), Louis De Jager (TSR2) and Zander Lombard (TSR3). LADIES EUROPEAN TOUR | Aramco Team Series Sotogrande Titleist Brand Ambassador Nelly Korda came from seven shots back to start the final round, closing in 5-under 67 to win by three shots. Fellow Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jessica Korda and Pauline Roussin-Bouchard finished in a tie for second. What’s in Nelly Korda’s Titleist Golf Bag?

Harrington, 50, closed with a bogey-free 67 to win by three shots over Thongchai Jaidee (Pro V1x) and Mike Weir (Pro V1x Left Dash) , leading a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players. Harrington made 20 birdies over the three rounds and finished the week 4th in Scrambling (86.67%) while going 2-for-2 in sand saves. CHAMPION WINS WITH NEW TSR DRIVER The winner of the DICK’s Sporting Goods Open gamed a NEW TSR3 9.0° driver, marking the first win on PGA TOUR Champions for the new TSR models. Over the three rounds in New York, he led the field in Driving Distance at 323 yards. KORN FERRY TOUR | Albertsons Boise Open Playing a Titleist Pro V1 Left Dot golf ball, the winner of the Albertsons Boise Open captured his first-career Korn Ferry Tour victory after posting a career-low 8-under 63 Sunday and emerging victorious from a three-man, all-Titleist playoff. The winner – who finished the four rounds at 21 under, along with Titleist Brand Ambassador Philip Knowles (Pro V1) and MJ Daffue (Pro V1x) – prevailed with a par on the first playoff hole at Hillcrest CC. Japan Golf Tour | Shigeo Nagashima Invitational Sega Sammy Cup This week’s winner on the Japan Golf Tour used a Titleist TSi3 driver (10.0°) and Vokey Design SM8 58-degree lob wedge, posting a final-round 67 to win by two. Tomoharu Otsuki (Pro V1) finished solo second after a closing 7-under 65. Asian Tour | International Series Korea Taehoon Ok (Pro V1) birdied the final hole Sunday to earn his first Asian Tour victory. Ok, 23, rolled his Pro V1 in from 5 feet for birdie on the 18th hole at Lotte Skyhill CC to close in 3-under 68 and finish the week at 15 under, one shot clear of Bio Kim (Pro V1x) . “I asked my caddie on 17 if he really thought I can birdie 18 and he said, ‘go for it’,” Ok said. “I have learned a lot by playing in the final pairings recently so that really helped.” It was a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players, as Titleist Brand Ambassador Trevor Simsby (Pro V1x) finished another shot back in third. Eleven of the 14 players finishing T10 or better trusted a Titleist ball for the week. SUNSHINE TOUR | Sunbet Challenge Albert Venter (Pro V1) captured his second Sunshine Tour win while leading a 1-2-3-4-5 finish for Titleist golf ball players. Venter opened with a 9-under 63 on his way to a six-shot victory. Pro V1 players Ruan Korb and Titleist Brand Ambassador Estiaan Conradie finished second and third, respectively, with Titleist golf ball players claiming the top-five positions on the leader board. CHINA TOUR | Shenyang International Open Pro V1x loyalist Zihan She earned his first China Tour victory while leading a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players. She, the only player to finish the week at even par, won by one shot over Jia Zhang (Pro V1x) . Yang Tong (Pro V1x) finished another shot back in third. Titleist golf ball players made up 11 of the top 12 finishers at Shenyang Century Golf Club, as 96 percent of the field trusted a Titleist golf ball. AMATEUR | U.S. Amateur The winner of the U.S. Amateur trusted his Pro V1 golf ball to a 1-up victory in the all-Titleist golf ball final at Ridgewood Country Club. The champion, ranked third in the World Amateur Golf Ranking coming into the week, hit his approach on the 36th hole to 12 feet and two-putted for the halve to claim the Havemeyer Trophy. The runner-up, playing a Pro V1x golf ball and 13 Titleist clubs, battled back from a 5-down deficit early in the day, birdieing the 35th hole to extend the match to No. 36. TITLEIST SWEEPS EQUIPMENT COUNTS AT U.S. AMATEUR Titleist was the overwhelming #1 golf ball and most played brand in every major equipment category as the field of 312 players chased history at Ridgewood Country Club. This season on the PGA TOUR, Titleist has topped every major equipment category three times, and 26 times since the start of the 2019 calendar year – a feat that has never been matched by any other brand. Titleist also swept the counts across this summer’s seven Elite Amateur Series events, the six NCAA Men’s Regional Championships and the U.S. Junior Championship. At the U.S. Women’s Amateur, Titleist was also the most played golf ball, driver (T1), hybrid , utility iron , wedge and putter . This week in New Jersey: A total of 271 players (87%) teed up a Pro V1 , Pro V1x , Pro V1 Left Dot or Pro V1x Left Dash , more than 11 times the nearest competitor (24) – including the champion, all four semifinalists, seven of the eight quarterfinalists and three of the stroke-play co-medalists. There were more Titleist drivers (121/39%), fairways (121 players/39%) and hybrids (36/40%) in players’ bags than any other brand – with a total of 285 (39%) total metalwoods in play, compared to 188 for the nearest competitor. Titleist was the most played utility iron with 118 (65%), more than five times the nearest competitor (23), with T200 (Utility Build) being the most popular model. Titleist irons were the top choice of U.S. Amateur contestants with 125 (40%) sets in play, more than double the nearest competitor (59). T100 irons were the most trusted model. There were more Vokey Design gap, sand and lob wedges (544/59%) in play than all other brands combined. More players trusted Scotty Cameron putters (102/33%) than any other brand, compared to 68 for the nearest competitor. ... #TeamTitleist

PGA TOUR | FedEx St. Jude Championship Titleist Brand Ambassador Will Zalatoris vaulted to the top of the FedExCup Playoffs standings and into the Top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking (No. 9), claiming his first PGA TOUR title on the third hole of a playoff Sunday in Memphis. Zalatoris – gaming a Pro V1 golf ball and all-Titleist setup, including a NEW TSR driver and fairway, T200 and T100 irons, Vokey Design SM9 wedges and Scotty Cameron Phantom X putter – played his final 54 holes of the week in 16 under, posting a final-round 4-under 66 Sunday to force the extra session. Over the four days at TPC Southwind, Zalatoris, 25, topped the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+8.37) and SG: Approach (+7.73). What's In Will Zalatoris' Titleist Golf Bag? www.youtube.com/watch Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1 Driver: NEW TSR3 8.0° | Fujikura Speeder 661 TR X Fairway Metal: NEW TSR2+ 13° | Fujikura Ventus 8 Blue X Utility Iron: T200 3 | Nippon NS Pro Modus 3 Irons: T100 4-PW | Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue Wedges: NEW Vokey Design SM9 50.08F, 54.10F (at 55), WedgeWorks 60T | Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue Putter: Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11 (Long) tour prototype ZALATORIS ON HIS PRO V1; SIX STRAIGHT WINS FOR TITLEIST GOLF BALL PLAYERS Zalatoris' breakthrough victory at the FedEx St. Jude Championship marked the sixth straight victory for Titleist golf ball players on the PGA TOUR and Win No. 30 for Pro V1 and Pro V1x players overall this season. “When you play the best golf ball you’re able to do what you want,” Zalatoris said. “And so off the tee it matches up with my high speed, playing the V as opposed to the X. X spins just a little too much for me, but the V just fits me perfectly. With the irons, I know how it’s going to come out of the rough, if it’s going to come out a little hot, a little spiny, same thing. Super most important part for me is with the wedges because being as high spin and as much speed as I have, I know exactly what shot I’m going to hit, when it’s going to do a little drop and stop, and when it’s going to spin back.” ZALATORIS WINS WITH NEW TSR DRIVER; 4TH WIN IN 8 WEEKS FOR NEW TITLEIST MODEL Zalatoris' victory Sunday using his NEW TSR driver marked victory No. 4 for the new Titleist driver models in just eight weeks since making their PGA TOUR debut at the Travelers Championship . Zalatoris joins last week’s Wyndham Championship winner Joohyung "Tom" Kim ( TSR3 9.0°), as well as Cameron Smith ( TSR3 10.0°/ Open Championship ) and J.T. Poston ( TSR3 9.0°/ John Deere Classic ) in the TSR winner’s circle. In total, Titleist drivers have been used to win 15 events this season on the PGA TOUR, more than any other competitor. This week in Memphis, Zalatoris gained nearly two strokes on the field (+1.815) with his NEW TSR3 8.0° driver while averaging 321.2 yards off the tee. Said Zalatoris: “I literally took my old shaft and plugged it into the new TSR and I immediately saw results. The mishits for me were exponentially better. I mean, I was already seeing mishits go about seven, eight yards farther. I have a lot of distance but bringing it in left-to-right was something that was huge for me.” “I mean, it was a no brainer. It was pretty similar to my TSi and it was better, which I didn't think we could do… With being one of the longer guys on tour, the better I can do in terms of bringing it in from side-to-side and make my dispersion be that much tighter is exactly what I’m looking for. And so being able to hit shots that before might have maybe been in the left rough or the right rough, now all of a sudden I’m seeing a few more go on the fairway, which is just a couple more birdie chances a round.” JUSTIN THOMAS MAKES SWITCH TO NEW TSR DRIVER Titleist Brand Ambassador Justin Thomas became the latest player to make the switch to a NEW TSR driver, putting his NEW TSR3 10.0° model in play for the first time Thursday at TPC Southwind. Over the first 36 holes, Thomas led the field in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, gaining nearly three strokes (+2.999) on the field when all was said and done Sunday. He finished the week third overall in SG: Tee to Green (+8.295). “It’s obviously an interesting time of year to make a driver change, heading into the playoffs, but after some really great testing early on with TSR3, JT was able to spend some more time with it after the Open Championship,” said J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, Titleist’s Director of Player Promotions . “The top priority for JT with driver is performance on all of the variety of shots he likes to hit, from the low, piercing cut to the high draw and everything in between. He’s also looking for that classic shaping, a very clean look, and a driver that sounds great. TSR checked all of those boxes for him. “He clearly had great results with TSi, he won a major with it this year, but with TSR he’s seen an uptick in ball speed with just incredible consistency off the face. He keeps mentioning how consistent his speed, launch and spin numbers are on off-center hits. For a tour player who’s trying to hit a variety of shots on these very difficult golf courses, it’s that consistency that really allows him to perform at his best.” Said Thomas, to PGATOUR.com, after Round 1: “The biggest difference is the spin. When I heel it, it doesn’t spin crazy high and when I toe it, it’s somehow spinning a little more. It’s unbelievable in terms of misses.” Thomas’ Driver: NEW TSR3 10.0° | Mitsubishi Diamana ZF 60 TX | D•1 SureFit hosel setting ZALATORIS WINS WITH NEW TSR2+ FAIRWAY METAL In addition to his NEW TSR3 driver, Zalatoris also had a NEW TSR2+ 13.0° fairway metal in the bag. “This is an absolute rocket,” Zalatoris said. “I love this thing. We tried it at the Scottish Open this year and it’s the best 3-wood I’ve ever had. It’s pretty cool to be able to have something besides driver that I can hit off the tee and basically hit it as far as I want. And then if I need to hit high and soft into greens, I can do that as well.” 11 STRAIGHT WINS FOR VOKEY WEDGE PLAYERS ON PGA TOUR Zalatoris became the 11th-consecutive winner on the PGA TOUR to have at least one Vokey in the bag, gaming three NEW SM9's in Memphis. Zalatoris bested the field in average proximity from 50-125 yards (9'4" on nine attempts) while finishing eighth in Scrambling at 76.19 percent. Overall, Vokey wedge players have combined for 31 wins on the 2021-22 PGA TOUR, compared to eight for the nearest competitor. Zalatoris plays SM9 50.08F, 54.10S (@55), WedgeWorks 60T models. Said Zalatoris: “With SM9, it’s basically exactly what I wanted to see out of my wedges. They come out a little bit lower with a little more spin. The flight came down probably like five or six feet, but it added a bunch of spin so it worked out perfect. Especially getting back into the wind, I can flight something a little bit lower and it’ll grab just exactly how I want it to.” “I play a 50-55-60 setup. I’ve got a 50.08, really good for me because it just fits a gapping between my pitching wedge and the 54. The 54, I’ve got the 10-degree S grind. And then with the 60, I’ve got the T grind, which is awesome, because it’s very versatile. It lays super close to the ground, I’m able to lay it open, I’m able to trap it, hit a low, put a bunch of spin on it. And so it’s really versatile for me.” ZALATORIS ON HIS T100 IRONS, T200 UTILITY Zalatoris , who bested the field in Strokes Gained: Approach (+7.73) at TPC Southwind, carries a set of T100 irons in addition to a T200 (Utility Build) 3-iron. Zalatoris on his T100s: “Love these irons. I’m a high spin guy and the cavity back helps me bring the ball down, and my distance control is just so consistent, which is the most important thing when it comes to an iron. The feel is amazing. I also love that they have a kink less offset, and that is massive for me, because specifically out of the rough, it got rid of flyers.” Zalatoris on his T200: “It’s just so versatile. If we’re playing somewhere fast and firm and I’ve got to keep something under the wind, I’m able to bring it down low. And if I’m hitting something into a par-5, I’m able to throw it up high and be able to stop it on a green. And that’s exactly what I’m looking for. I’ve always liked playing more of an iron look as opposed to being a hybrid guy and to have something that versatile for me is huge. And it’s the most versatile hybrid iron I’ve ever played.” ZALATORIS WINS WITH PHANTOM X; 20 WINS FOR SCOTTY CAMERON PLAYERS THIS SEASON Zalatoris' victory Sunday with his Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11 tour prototype made it 20 wins for Scotty Cameron players this season on the PGA TOUR, more than any other competitor. It was just one year earlier at TPC Southwind – at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational – that Zalatoris put a new Phantom X 11 in play for the first time. On Sunday, Zalatoris rolled in a clutch 10-footer for par on 18 to make the playoff, then dropped another 10-footer for par on the second playoff hole to extend the match. His 7-footer on the third playoff hole sealed the victory. For the week, Zalatoris led the field in approach putt performance (also known as lag putting). “Immediately when I was hitting putts [with it for the first time], I knew exactly where the putt was going to go. Right off the face, I can feel the putt distance-wise and that’s super important,” Zalatoris said. “When it comes to testing for me, it’s all feel. It was a putter that the second I put it down, I felt like I could see the line super well. I put a line on my ball and seeing that ball roll end over end, it’s a pretty good feeling when you strike a putt and it goes in dead center.” “Players just love the way the 11 sits on the ground,” said Scotty Cameron Rep Drew Page . “When you put it down, it doesn’t open, it doesn’t close, it just sets up so easily.” LPGA/LET | ISPS Handa World Championship Maja Stark won the ISPS Handa World Championship (women’s division), making 10 final-round birdies with her Pro V1 golf ball, posting a 10-under 63 to win by five shots. Stark hit 10 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens on Sunday, led a 1-through-10 sweep for Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players at the top of the leader board. DP WORLD TOUR | ISPS Handa World Championship Playing a Pro V1 golf ball, the winner of the ISPS Handa World Championship (men’s division) shot a final round 1-under 69 to finish at 12 under for the week and secure his second DP World Tour victory of the year, while leading a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players. In addition to his Pro V1, the winner also relied on four Vokey Design SM9 wedges (46.10F, 52.08F, 56.10S, 60.10S) and a Scotty Cameron Phantom X 7.5 putter. KORN FERRY TOUR | Pinnacle Bank Championship Robby Shelton (Pro V1 Left Dot) carded a final round 6-under 65 to win the Korn Ferry Tour’s regular season finale by one shot over Titleist Brand Ambassador Ben Taylor . Kevin Dougherty (Pro V1 Left Dot) finished another shot back, making it a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players in Omaha. TITLEIST LEADS THE WAY AMONG KORN FERRY TOUR GRADUATES Both Shelton and Taylor finished inside the Top 25 on the KFT’s regular season points list, as 23 of the 25 players who officially secured their PGA TOUR cards for the 2022-2023 season on Sunday played at least one piece of Titleist equipment: Twenty of the 25 KFT regular season graduates were Titleist golf ball players, more than six times the nearest competitor (3); 10 grads played a Titleist driver , double the nearest competitor (5), with five of them having already made the switch to NEW TSR models; Titleist irons were the top choice of the Top 25 with nine players, more than double the nearest competitor (4); 14 players gamed at least one Vokey Design wedge, more than three times the nearest competitor (4); and Scotty Cameron was the most played putter in the regular season graduating class with nine players, compared to seven for the nearest competitor.

KOREAN TOUR | The 4TH Woosung Construction Open Titleist Brand Ambassador YongGu Shin birdied the second hole of a playoff to outlast KyungNam Kang (Pro V1) and earn his first KPGA Tour title. Shin and Kang, who finished the week at 13 under, topped a leader board that featured Titleist golf ball players in the top-6 positions.

PGA TOUR | Open Championship Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith lifted the Claret Jug Sunday in St. Andrews, claiming his first major championship with an historic final round at the Home of Golf. Smith – playing a Pro V1x golf ball, NEW TSR3 driver, T100 irons, NEW Vokey Design SM9 wedges and Scotty Cameron putter among his Titleist equipment – made five consecutive birdies from holes 10 through 14 on his way to a final-nine 30, the lowest nine-hole score all-time by an Open Champion. He finished with a bogey-free 8-under 64, the lowest final round by an Open Champion at the Old Course. Smith’s eighth and final birdie of the day, a 2-footer on the 18th hole, earned him the one-shot victory over Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Young , whose closing 65 was punctuated by an eagle after driving the 18th green with his NEW TSR3 driver and rolling in his Pro V1 Left Dot golf ball from 17 feet with his Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11 Knuckle Neck tour prototype. Young’s runner-up was the best finish by a player at St. Andrews making their Open debut since 1964. What’s in Cameron Smith’s Titleist Golf Bag?

SMITH ON THE PERFORMANCE OF HIS PRO V1 x Smith's major breakthrough marked his third victory of 2022 and win No. 26 for Titleist golf ball players overall this season on the PGA TOUR. Smith put his current golf ball – 2021 Pro V1x – in play the first week it was available at the 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. A month later, he teed the ball up at Augusta National, where he became the first player in Masters history to post four rounds in the 60’s. He opened 2022 with a win at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and followed that up with a victory at The PLAYERS. “The biggest thing for me with the [2021 Pro V1x] is the cover and the stickiness it gives me around the greens. I feel as though I can hit a lot of different scoring shots into and around the green... For me, when I tested it, it was a bit hotter off the driver, which was great. The windows were great. The spin was still the same. The irons were basically the same which I love. But for me, the biggest thing that stuck out was the control coming out of the rough and around the greens. So like inside 40-50 yards, just the stickiness of it. I feel as though I can control my shots, especially those difficult, soft shots, just so much better with that new cover they got on there. … I love to be creative around the green, so hitting those high, spinny shots and just being able to hit different shots is really important for me.” Sunday at the Old Course, Smith hit 17 greens in regulation, the most in a final round by an Open champion over the last 20 years. He finished the week 15th in Strokes Gained: Approach and 19th in SG: Around the Green. His eight birdies in the final round were the second-most by a major champion over the last 25 years. “This ball is fantastic in the wind,” he said. “It’s just consistent. I feel like I can really dial in my numbers, especially with the shorter irons, and give myself plenty of birdie looks.” NEW TSR DRIVER VICTORIOUS IN MAJOR DEBUT The NEW Titleist TSR Drivers made their major debut at the Open Championship, with Smith bringing his new TSR3 10.0° driver to the winner’s circle in St. Andrews. In the five weeks since making their tour debut at the Travelers Championship , players using TSR drivers have now earned two PGA TOUR victories, including one major. ( J.T. Poston earned the first win for TSR at the John Deere Classic .) “Cam loves everything that TSR has brought to the table in terms of ball speed and consistency,” said J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, Titleist’s Director of Player Promotions. “He’s done a bunch of testing with both the TSR2 and TSR3 models, but when it comes to windy conditions, he really likes the feeling of being able to work the ball more. Going with TSR3 this week in St. Andrews not only helped him flatten his trajectory, it gave him that added workability versus the higher-MOI TSR2, providing him the versatility to shape shots and take advantage of the different winds on different holes.” Cameron Young , who drove the 18th green to set up his closing eagle, made it a 1-2 finish for TSR driver players. Young finished the week fourth in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green with his TSR3 10.0° model. “I’ve loved it. I put it right in play last week,” he said. “It feels very much like the old one, but just a little faster. And I feel like especially the toe miss for me, I haven’t gotten as much curve out of it, which is obviously a good thing. It seems to be a little bit more consistent on my misses. I’ve put it right in play and it’s been great.” Three of the year’s four major champions gamed a Titleist driver: Justin Thomas (PGA Championship): TSi3 U.S. Open champion : TSi3 Cameron Smith (Open Championship): TSR3 MAJOR SWEEP FOR VOKEY WEDGES All four men’s major champions had Vokey Design wedges in the bag in 2022, with Smith using four NEW SM9 models to navigate the Old Course’s firm, undulating turf. The last three major champion each carried three or four new SM9’s. The Masters champion : Vokey Design SM8 50.12F, 56.14F, WedgeWorks 60.06K Justin Thomas (PGA Championship): NEW Vokey Design SM9 46.10F (@ 47.5), 52.12F (@ 52.5), 56.14F (@ 57.0), WedgeWorks 60.06K U.S. Open champion : NEW Vokey Design SM9 52.12F, 56.08M, 60.08M Cameron Smith (Open Championship): NEW Vokey Design SM9 46.10F, 52.08F, 56.08M, WedgeWorks 60T Said Smith in the lead up to The Open: “You know, I think you have to be comfortable with almost being uncomfortable, in these conditions. I’m hitting some pitching wedges, and gap wedges from 50, 60 yards, which is not something that we typically do. So yeah, lots of practice, lots of flight and spin control, and I think that’s how you get the most out of it. I try not to change up my technique too much, to be honest. I like to just switch the wedges around it. I don’t put the ball further back, and try and hit more down on it, or anything. I’m trying to keep everything the same, just using different lofts.” “I think these new Vokey wedges, as well, in the wind are a lot better, especially into the wind. The 46, and the 52, for me, have been a big, big help in the wind. The ball just flights the way I want it to, and the golf balls are best in the world, so it just does what it does.” Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill on Smith’s wedge setup: “Cam is so talented. He just has a great touch and understands how to find the bottom. He’s also really good at understanding which ones fit him the best. That’s why, for so long, he’s played the same five wedges – the 46.10, the 52.08, the 56M grind, and he’ll go back and forth between the 60.10S and the 60T. “He just understands that if the conditions need it, he’ll make the switch. If it gets softer, he’ll go to the S. If it stays firm, he’ll stick with the T. But the first three are really plug-and-play, he can use them from everywhere. And because he’s so good with his hands, he can get away with a little bit less bounce and actually add some versatility to a short game, which is why that M grind, the sand wedge is a good friend as well.” The Vokey T grind was such a popular choice this week at the Old Course that Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill ran out of heads on the Titleist Tour Van. Young also played a 60T (bent to 62) among his four Vokey SM9’s. “There’s this trend at this event with these conditions where a T grind really outperforms most of the other grinds we make, just due to how it’s made and what it does. The rear section of the sole of the T grind is the lowest rear section we make, meaning when he opens up the face of the wedge, it sits as close to the ground as anything that we build in the Vokey line. So for guys to say, ‘This one fits me the best here,’ it makes a lot of sense. So I’m not surprised that a T grind was in the winner’s bag.” SMITH CONTINUES TO MAKE HISTORY WITH SCOTTY CAMERON 009M Smith and his Newport-style Scotty Cameron 009M tour prototype putter continue to make history. Smith led the field in Strokes Gained: Putting, while making a record 255 feet of putts during his second round at the Old Course – the highest total ever registered in one round on the PGA TOUR. On Sunday, Smith used his 009M to get up-and-down for par from behind the Road Hole bunker, and then up-and-down for birdie on the 18th hole, just right of the Valley of Sin. Earlier this season at The PLAYERS, Smith gained the most strokes putting versus the field in tournament history (+2.88 per round). He also finished with the most one-putts ever by a PLAYERS champ (42). “I’ve always been a little bit of a fiddler with the putter, but yeah, I just really like this one,” said Smith, who changed to the Newport-style 009M model at the 2021 Sony Open. “It just feels great in the hands. I feel like I’m able to hit really good lag putts with it, which is a big thing out here. We leave ourselves some pretty nasty putts sometimes. I feel like I’m able to get the ball rolling real good. And the biggest thing for me is the strike. So I just feel like I hit lots of good putts with it out of the middle and it feels so good.” “I've always loved the (alignment) dot on top. I’ve never been a line guy. I feel like I can just feel the putt a little bit better. When I don’t get so obsessed with the line, I feel like I'm able to just hit a good putt and a good putt out of the middle means more chances of going in.” Three of the year’s four major champions used a Scotty Cameron putter The Masters champion : Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tourtype GSS tour prototype Justin Thomas (PGA Championship): Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 Knuckle Neck tour prototype Cameron Smith (Open Championship): Scotty Cameron 009M tour prototype SMITH ON HIS T100 IRONS Smith hit 17 greens in regulation at the Old Course Sunday, the most in a final round by an Open champion over the last 20 years. He plays T100 irons (with a prototype black finish) that he put into play immediately at last season’s Travelers Championship. “I put these in as soon as we got them. They’ve been really good,” Smith said. “I love the consistency. I think they did a lot of really good work, especially on the shorter irons with grinding this heel a little bit. So when you get a bit of an uneven lie, you don’t feel like the heel's digging in and you’re missing shots left.” LPGA | Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational Jennifer Kupcho (Pro V1) and Lizette Salas (Pro V1x) posted a final-round 61 (-9) for a 26-under victory total at Midland Country Club. The pair closed with a final-nine 30 to finish five shots clear of Pro V1x loyalists Matilda Castren and Kelly Tan in the tournament’s four-ball format. Castren made eight birdies on her own ball during Sunday’s final round. With 122 players, over 84 percent of the field teed up a Titleist golf ball this week, more than 11 times the nearest competitor (11). PGA TOUR | Barracuda Championship Chez Reavie (Pro V1) tallied 43 points in the Modified Stableford Scoring System, good for a one-point win at the Tahoe Mountain Club in Truckee, Calif. Final round birdies at Nos. 8, 9, 12 and 16, and a par at 18 secured the crown. WINNER PLAYS VOKEY SM9’s In addition to his Pro V1 golf ball, the winner leaned on his Vokey Design SM9 gap (50.12F), sand (54.10S) and lob (58.10S) wedges to lead the field in Scrambling (84.2%) and tie for 8th in Greens in Regulation. KORN FERRY TOUR | Memorial Health Championship Paul Haley II (Pro V1x) secured his PGA TOUR card for next season with a bogey-free final round 64 and three-shot victory. Haley led a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players. Austin Eckroat (Pro V1) closed in 68 to finish second, while Michael Kim (Pro V1x) posted a final-round 67 to finish another shot back in third. Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls were played by 12 of the top 13 finishers, as well as 22 of the top 25 for the week. ELITE AMATEUR SERIES | Southern Amateur The winner of the Southern Amateur Championship trusted his Titleist Pro V1x Left Dash and 14 Titleist clubs to victory in Sea Island, Georgia. Birdies on Nos. 16 and 18 propelled the victor to a three-shot win with a final score of 20-under par 264 at Sea Island’s Plantation. The win marks back-to-back victories for a Pro V1x ball and a Scotty Cameron putter in the Elite Amateur Series, which has two events remaining this summer. What’s in the Bag of the Southern Am Champion? Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1x Left Dash Driver: TSi3 10.0° Fairway Metal: TSi2 13.5° Utility Iron: T200 (Utility Build) 3 Irons: 620 CB 4-6 irons; 620 MB 7-PW Wedges: Vokey Design 50.12F, 54.10S, 58.08M Putter: Scotty Cameron Timeless tour prototype putter. ... #TeamTitleist

www.youtube.com/watch PGA TOUR | Travelers Championship The NEW Titleist TSR drivers – the next generation of the most played drivers on the PGA TOUR – made their debut this week at the Travelers Championship, with 18 players putting new TSR2 , TSR3 or TSR4 models immediately in play, including two of the Top 5 finishers: J.T. Poston (TSR3 9.0°) and Chesson Hadley (TSR3 10.0°). Also among those making the switch to TSR drivers this week: Jordan Spieth (TSR3 10.0°), Cameron Davis (TSR3 8.0°) and Davis Riley (TSR3 8.0°), who led the field in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (+5.94). Poston and Davis also added NEW TSR fairway metals to their bag, with a total of 13 TSR2 and TSR3 fairways going in play this week in Hartford. Titleist was the overwhelming field favorite for golf balls with 72% of the players teeing up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x (nearest competitor, 10%). In addition to golf balls, Titleist was also the most trusted driver , hybrid , utility iron , iron , wedge and putter at the event. DAVIS RILEY ON HIS TSR DRIVER Playing a TSR3 8.0° driver, Davis Riley averaged a career-best 1.48 strokes gained off the tee per round this week, leading the field. His 2.41 strokes gained off the tee in Sunday’s final round was also the best of his career. “Immediately when I pulled the headcover off, I was like, ‘Dang, this looks really good.’ The overall look, the feel is awesome. It’s really good. The mishits are really good. I’m finding really consistent spin across the face no matter where I’m hitting it, so that you’re maxing out your carry numbers every time. It’s what you really want to look for. It’s not how good your good hits are. It’s, ‘How good are your bad hits?’ And just seeing that consistency across the face is really cool to see. “I actually saw 1 or 2 mph increase in ball speed, which is really nice. Typically when you have a mishit, you see that number drop dramatically. But I noticed right away, I was like, ‘OK, I hit one of those a little high on the toe.’ And the numbers were almost identical to the center hit. “I tend to play a little left right cut with my driver. And the first day out (practice round) with it, it was awesome. My start lines were super consistent and the shot shape was super consistent. Just to see that consistent start line and curvature no matter where you’re hitting on the face is pretty cool.” J.T. POSTON ON HIS TSR DRIVER twitter.com/.../1540129117395451907 J.T. Poston was one of the first players to get fit into a NEW TSR driver. Working on the range Monday morning with Titleist Tour Rep Jim Curran , Poston saw a 2 mph jump in ball speed with his TSR3 9.0° compared to his prior generation TSi3 . “That’s definitely further,” Poston said after making contact for the first time. “I like the sound of that a lot. Feels great. Sounds great. Looks great.” Poston, who recorded his best finish (T2) of the season after rounds of 62-70-67-64, also added a new TSR2 15.0° fairway, commenting that his start lines were improved with better spin off the turf. CHESSON HADLEY ON HIS TSR DRIVER Chesson Hadley earned his best finish (5th) of the season with a NEW TSR3 10.0° driver in the bag, having gained up to 1.5 mph faster ball speed versus his prior generation TSi3 . Said Hadley: “When I set it down, it just looks like the same driver I’ve been hitting, but I’m getting better performance. You couldn’t ask for a better driver. I love it. I picked up a little bit of ball speed. And I mean, look at this thing. It looks like a Ferrari. That’s just so clean. You’ve got to like the way it looks and feels. And Titleist definitely has mastered both of those things. So I’m pretty juiced about it.” www.instagram.com/.../ NEW TSR DRIVERS IN PLAY (18) Josh Creel : TSR4 9.0° Cameron Davis : TSR3 8.0° Bill Haas : TSR3 8.0° Chesson Hadley : TSR3 10.0° Lee Hodges : TSR2 8.0° Charles Howell III : TSR3 10.0° C.T.

Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill built the wedge – an SM9 60.06K with D0 swing weight – after a conversation with the reigning Olympic champion at the Byron Nelson Championship. Said Dill: “He’s been in the same two Vokey 60’s for a long time, mainly the T and the K grinds. He occasionally will carry a couple of others, L and S, and he’ll determine which one best fits the conditions that week. “At the Byron Nelson, he told me he’d spent a little time chipping with Patrick Cantlay’s lob wedge (62.08M @61) and said he thought the weighting was really interesting. “Patrick’s pretty light – he’s about D1. Most guys are right around D5. He said, ‘I kind of like the way it felt, and I want to try it. What do you think? Should I just go down to D2 or D1?’ (He was previously at D3.) And I said, ‘Let’s take you a step further and really see if this feels the way you want.’ ” Dill made him a 60.06K and 60T to his specs at D0 swingweight. “By going lighter you’re able to create a little more speed, dial up the spin and hit it a little higher around the greens. He was like, ‘This thing feels so good. I feel like I can throw it through the ball a little faster, create a little more spin, and have a little more height when I want.’ ” PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS | U.S. Senior Open Three-time major champion Padraig Harrington (Pro V1) earned his first senior major title with a one-shot victory over Steve Stricker (Pro V1x) at Saucon Valley. Harrington, who finished the week at 10 under, topped a leader board that featured Titleist golf ball players in the Top 6 positions.

U.S. SENIOR OPEN WINNER WINS WITH TS i 3 DRIVER The winner of the U.S. Senior Open won with a Titleist TSi3 driver in the bag, as three of the Top 6 finishers played a Titleist driver. “I drove it great this week,” said the champ, who has worked with Titleist European Tour Rep Liam McDougall to dial in his TSi3 9.0° (Fujikura Ventus Black 70 X) and maximize his distance potential. “Obviously I took on those two par-4s and things. The one thing that I really did this week is drive it well. Very rarely got myself in trouble.” The winner of last week’s U.S. Open at The Country Club similarly gamed a TSi3 9.0° driver, having also worked with McDougall to gain distance and accuracy. In the final round, the U.S. Open champ was the only player to drive the green at the 301-yard 5th hole, where he two-putted for birdie. For the week, he ranked second in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (+4.78), while hitting 70% of fairways. DP WORLD TOUR | BMW International Open Haotong Li (Pro V1) drained a 40-footer for birdie to top Titleist Brand Ambassador Thomas Pieters on the first hole of an all- Pro V1 playoff. Li closed in 2-under 70 Sunday at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried to finish regulation at 22 under, while Pieters posted 5-under 67 to force the playoff.

Three trips to the winner’s circle in 15 months... it's safe to say that Brand Ambassador Max Homa is playing some good golf. And one of the constants through all four of his wins? An all-Titleist setup. We had the chance to catch up with Max after his fourth PGA Tour title on Sunday to answer some of your questions on why it's in the bag. Keep reading to get the inside scoop from the two-time Wells Fargo Championship champ himself. www.instagram.com/.../ Ask Max Homa - Why It's in the Bag Fast fact: Max Homa moved into the 2021 Pro V1 golf ball earlier this season at the Farmers Insurance Open, following a visit that week to the Titleist Performance Institute in nearby Oceanside, CA. “Max was looking for a little more height throughout the bag (versus the previous generation Pro V1 he was playing),” said Jeff Beyers, tour consultant for Titleist Golf Ball R&D . “With 2021 Pro V1 he was seeing that increase in peak height and the steeper angle of descent that he wanted. We went through a lot of clubs, he really liked the window, how consistently the ball was flying – and the numbers were right in line. The softer feel was also a big plus for him.” Hear from Max himself on why it's the right model for his game: www.youtube.com/watch A major key to Max's win on Sunday? His performance off the tee. In fact, he not only led the field in total driving last week at TPC Potomac, but on his 72nd hole, he gained 0.27 strokes on his final tee shot of the day - the most of any of his drives that week. Hear more about how he has dialed in his TSi3 driver off the tee. www.youtube.com/watch Take a deeper look at Max Homa's bag, and you'll count not one, not two, but three different Titleist iron models (and sometimes four, when he swaps out his 7-wood for a T200 utility iron). How's that for a T-Series trifecta? Hear the story on how this came to be from Max himself. www.youtube.com/watch Also in Max's bag - the #1 wedge on Tour. Check out the different grinds he has on his four new Vokey Design SM9 wedges. www.youtube.com/watch One of the tougher questions Max got from Team Titleist? What is his favorite Scotty - his Phantom X 5.5 Tour prototype or... his dog Scotty. Spoiler alert... Scotty the dog wins this match. www.youtube.com/watch But when it comes to putters - Max puts his trust in his Phantom X mallet. Hear more on why he made the switch to this model: www.instagram.com/.../ The one piece of equipment that Max used on every shot over 72 holes at TPC Potomac? His tried and trusted Pro V1. Hear what he had to say about the importance of getting fit into the right model for your game. www.youtube.com/watch Heavenwood or 7-wood? For Max - these two words are synonymous when asked what is his favorite club in the bag. Hear why: www.youtube.com/watch With four wins under his belt, all sights are set on next week at the PGA Championship as Max looks to etch his name on the Wanamaker Trophy for the first time. Hear why he'll put his trust in Titleist next week at Southern Hills: www.youtube.com/watch Thanks again to Max and to our Instagram community who submitted questions!

Very excited for my new irons. I will finally have all Titleist clubs, not to mention the new T series irons are beautiful! I ordered 6-PW T100S and T300 4&5, with the 5 iron bent 1 degree weak to match the rest of the lofts. AMT White S300 shafts. Will probably need to get my 50* bent to 49* but nonetheless, can’t wait to get them!

Jordan Spieth found himself in the winner's circle for the 13th time on the PGA TOUR after an all-Titleist playoff at the 2022 RBC Heritage against fellow Brand Ambassador Patrick Cantlay . His performance confirmed yet again why he's one of the most exciting and statically dominate players on TOUR. So in case you missed it in our recent Tour Recap, we wanted to share some fast facts about Jordan's win along with some other great insight around why he trusts Titleist from tee-to-green. Keep reading below to get the scoop... • Playing a Pro V1x golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment – including a TSi3 driver, NEW T100 irons and NEW Vokey Design SM9 wedges – Spieth finished first in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green, gaining more than 13 strokes (+13.341) on the field. • He was the only player to gain an average of over three strokes tee-to-green per round. It was the third-most strokes gained tee-to-green in an event in his PGA Tour career; his most since 2018. • Spieth also finished 4th in SG: Off the Tee (+4.322), 10th in SG: Approach (+4.79), 5th in SG: Around the Green (+4.232) and 6th in Scrambling (81.82%). It was the 5th-most strokes gained off the tee Spieth has had in a single tournament in his PGA Tour career. • He was 2 nd in the field in driving distance - all drives for the week, T-2 in field in GIR in the final round, and tied for the lead in par 5 scoring average for the week. • Spieth made two eagles over his first five holes Sunday on his way to a 5-under 66, rolling his Pro V1x in from 10 feet on Harbour Town’s 18th to finish the week at 13 under. He led the field in total eagles for the week. • On the first extra hole, Spieth got up-and-down for par from the front bunker on 18; Cantlay, faced with a plugged lie in the same trap, couldn’t match him What's in Jordan Spieth's Titleist Golf Bag?

And then when I went up the bag, I started to get a little bit higher launch, but it didn’t add spin in the long clubs. It just added ball speed and launch. So it’s a little higher window, but it just looks like it’s screaming through the air. • “I’m trying to hit optimal windows and if I can gain – really, in my long clubs – just a little bit better peak height with a little bit faster ball speed, it actually helps fill my gaps a little bit easier. And then it has the potential to come down a little bit softer, which is obviously important. … So being able to tee off and all you do is change the ball and it’s actually in a similar window that’s going 3-4 yards further, that’s nice. And then when I get to the scoring range clubs, I feel like if anything, I just have the ability to hit an even softer shot if I want to. … • “When you get into some trouble with some windy, tough golf courses, and you've got to hit these shots to short sided hole locations, to be able to have that extra spin around the greens will be really nice.” www.instagram.com/.../ SPIETH ON HIS TSi3 DRIVER • Jordan Spieth plays a Titleist TSi3 10° driver, the most played driver model for two seasons running on the PGA TOUR. • “This has been a great driver for me, it’s been fast, really forgiving. I’ve really, really liked the feel and I think it’s the best-looking driver that Titleist has ever made,” said Spieth, who finished the week 4th in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (+4.322). • Titleist was the most played driver at Harbour Town with 46 players (35%), 36 of those being TSi3 drivers. • Six of the nine players who finished T3 or better played a Titleist driver, five of them being TSi3 models. www.instagram.com/.../ SPIETH ON HIS NEW T100 IRONS • Jordan Spieth hit 15 of 18 greens Sunday at Harbour Town, while finishing the week 10th in Strokes Gained: Approach (+4.79). • Spieth plays a full set of NEW T100 irons, which he first put into play last summer at the Open Championship at Royal St. George’s. • It was also at the Open Championship in 2019 that Spieth, an instrumental part of the Titleist Golf Club R&D team’s T-Series development process , made the switch to the original T100 models. • Said Spieth: “First thing you noticed is how they look, kind of the backside of the iron. You could see the color just kind of more matted out, and then a really clean back to it. Just very simple – stays looking almost like a blade with the forgiveness of a cavity back. • “I don’t understand why you’d play any other iron to be honest. I joke around, ‘I’m not good enough to play the blades,’ but in reality, I think we’re just being smarter. I think we’re just like, ‘Oh, we can actually hit every shot that a blade can hit.’ But that chance that we mishit them – which we’re going to mishit a few shots in a round, even in a great round, the idea that it does carry that bunker and you make birdie on a hole where someone has to get up and down for par – I mean, it could be the difference in a tournament.” SPIETH ON NEW SM9 WEDGES • Jordan Spieth began 2022 with NEW Vokey Design SM9 wedges in his bag, putting the new models play immediately at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. • Said Spieth: “I like to really hit my wedges with lower trajectory. I feel like that I can control my distances a lot better when I do that, so the idea that when I’m hitting three-quarter shots with those clubs on those kind of not-full yardages, maybe if you have to flight one in the wind or off an upslope, they seem to be really, really consistently coming off with that nice low ball flight. So it was a pretty easy decision for me. • “All the good stuff stayed the same and then I felt like I could get even a little more dialed in on some of those three-quarter approach shots that a lot of times we have to have into some tucked pins out here. Without jeopardizing any of the full shots or any of the workability that I’ve always liked with my wedges.” • This week at Harbour Town, Spieth finished fifth in Strokes Gained: Around the Green (+4.232) and sixth in Scrambling (81.82%). www.instagram.com/.../ ... #TeamTitleist

LPGA | LOTTE Championship Hyo Joo Kim (Pro V1x) earned the seventh win for Titleist golf ball players in eight events played this season on the LPGA Tour, making birdie on Hoakalei Golf Club’s 18th hole Saturday to secure a two-shot victory. Kim, who opened with two consecutive 5-under 67’s, overcame increasingly windy conditions on Oahu, playing her first 41 holes without a bogey. For the week, she totaled 15 birdies to just four bogeys. “It’s blowing too much. I can't believe that I played in this wind,” Kim, now a five-time LPGA winner, said after the third round. “But the wind has been blowing the whole week. So I never thought like ‘It’s really hard,’ ‘What's wrong with the weather?’ I didn’t do that. But it was especially strong windy today, so it was difficult.” Kim closed in 1-under 71 to finish at 11 under and lead a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players. Hinako Shibuno (Pro Vx1) was runner-up at 9 under, while Hye-Jin Choi (Pro V1) finished in solo third, another two shots back. WINNER PLAYS VOKEY WEDGES The winner of the LOTTE Championship – whose pitch from off the green at No. 18 Saturday left her a 2-foot birdie putt for the victory – had three Vokey Design wedges (SM7 48.10F, 52.08F & SM8 58.10S) in the bag. Five of the first eight winners this season on the LPGA have been Vokey wedge players.

Three shots back to start the final round, Alexander, playing a Pro V1 golf ball and full bag of Titleist equipment, closed in 6-under 65 to win by two shots. He sealed the win with a birdie on 18, getting his Pro V1 golf ball up-and-down from just off the front of the green on the par 5. His rounds of 65-66-66-65 totalled 22 under, putting him at 45 under over his last eight rounds at Texas Rangers GC. He won last year’s event at 23 under (67-65-65-64). With the win, Alexander, who led the field in Greens in Regulation at 87.5% (63/72), moved to No. 8 in the Korn Ferry Points Standings. In celebration of his 2021 victory, Alexander threw out the first pitch Wednesday at the Texas Rangers’ game. “Whenever you can be the first person to do something, I thinks that’s cool,” said Alexander, 33. “Hopefully I'm not back here next year; hopefully I’m on the TOUR. But today a win is a win and I’ll defend any title anywhere, so I’ll take it.” What’s in Tyson Alexander’s Titleist Golf Bag?

Pete Dye designed over 100 golf courses—Sawgrass, Whistling Straits, Harbour Town, and Kiawah to name a few. His self proclaimed favorite? Teeth of the Dog at Casa de Campo. It's hard to believe it until you see for yourself. Crystal clear Caribbean surf colliding with meticulously manicured, mint-condition turf. The perfect destination for our inaugural Team Titleist International event. Day 1 After being greeted with a bag stuffed full of Team Titleist goodies, guests enjoyed a customized miniature golf experience for a chance to win a custom Scotty Cameron putter. A common theme for the trip was Casa de Campo rolling out the red carpet for Team Titleist, and their first perk was a private dinner in their Lago restaurant allowing our group to break bread while watching the Caribbean sunset. Day 2 If endless vistas over winding rivers are your thing, you would have loved our first full day of golf. Guests warmed up experiencing all-new Vokey Design SM9 wedges before enjoying all 27 holes the Dye Fore course has to offer. Team Titleist definitely worked up an appetite and got their fix of tacos and Dominican culture at Altos de Chavón—a replica 16th century Mediterranean village with sweeping views of the Chavón River and the Caribbean Sea. Day 3 Sharing the course with Hall of Fame baseball players and collegiate golfers, Team Titleist made their way out on Teeth of the Dog. Between golf swings and cameras, one quickly lost count of how many shots were taken that day. Non-participants could have mistaken this round for a Sunday on the PGA TOUR with outbursts of cheers around the course. With closest-tos on every par 3, long drive opportunities, and other various on-course competitions, there was plenty of reason for Team Titleist to share some excitement. Even after the round, Team Titleist had a crack at more prizes with a #ProvingIt TrackMan challenge at Casa de Campo's Learning Center. We wrapped up the day, and event, at another private setting at the Minitas Beach Club. Individual fans, golf buddies, couples, and even a mother-son duo spent one last night enjoying one another's company. The highlight of the event was our final prize drawings where attendees had a shot at a year-supply of custom Pro V1 golf balls , TSi drivers , T-Series irons , Vokey SM9 wedges , and another Scotty Cameron putter . A third of the attendees went home with a prize (in addition to their robust tee gift). Laughs, hugs, and maybe even a tear of joy were shared that night. We cannot thank our partners at Casa de Campo enough for being such gracious hosts. If you are looking for a luxury retreat with all the golf you can handle, we highly suggest taking advantage of the Team Titleist Casa de Campo Package . A big thank you to everyone who attended. Every Team Titleist Event is a testament to how truly special this community is. Without you, none of this would be possible. Check out more event photos in our Instagram post below.
