But that's what Justin Thoma-WGC Championship, Richy Werenski PGA Tour and Daniel Kang in the LPGA return to play all did this week with Titleist. Read below for the details.

VanWezenbeeck seeking tighter dispersion in his TS3 (15.0) 3-wood. He transitioned from the Tensei Blue CK 80 to Tensei Blue AV Raw 85 with positive results.
