  1. I'ts not often you see winners of three major tournaments all in the same week all from the same club company. 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. From Titleist Tour Notes WGC: Titleist Brand Ambassador Justin Thomas (equip listing below) returned to No. 1 in the world following his win at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational … Thomas fired a final round 5-under 65 en route to a 13-under 267 victory total … He became the first player to claim three titles on the 2019-20 PGA TOUR season (Sentry Tournament of Champions, CJ Cup) and the third-youngest player on the PGA TOUR to reach 13 career victories. >Thomas finished three shots clear of four players, three of whom place their trust in Titleist golf balls without an agreement (Brooks Koepka/Pro V1x, Vokey Design gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron TNP2 Teryllium putter; Daniel Berger/Pro V1; Tom Lewis/Pro V1x). >Thomas worked with Titleist Director of Player Promotions J.J. 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. What’s in Justin Thomas’ Winning Titleist Bag?: Pro V1x golf ball TS3 (9.5) driver TS3 (15.0) / 915Fd (18.0) fairway metals T100 (4) / 620 MB (5-9) irons Vokey Design SM7 pitching (46.10F), gap (52.12F), SM8 sand (57.14F) and lob (60.04T) wedges Scotty Cameron X5 putter WGC Equipment Counts: Over five times as many players relied upon TITLEIST golf balls at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational than the nearest competitor: Titleist: 55 (71%), Nearest Competitor: 10 (13%); TITLEIST was also the top choice in hybrids (9/36%), utility irons (14/39%), irons (17/22%) and wedges (92/42%). PGA TOUR: Richy Werenski closed out his first career PGA TOUR win in style, carding a dramatic birdie on the final hole to capture the Barracuda Championship by one point over fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Troy Merritt (Pro V1x, TS2 driver, TS3 fairway metal, TS3 hybrid, 718 T-MB/620 CB irons, Vokey Design SM8 pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo Knucklehead putter) … Werenski started the final round seven (7) points behind Merritt, the overnight leader, in the only PGA TOUR event that utilizes a modified Stableford scoring system … Werenski rallied over the final three holes with a pitch in eagle worth five (5) points on No. 16 to draw within one, setting up the winning two points on No. 18 for a total of 39 to Merritt’s 38 … Werenski lost in a playoff at this event three years ago … He finished T3 while playing in the final pairing at the 3M Open last week … He gained the final spot in this week’s PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park, the first major championship of the year … Merritt secured an invitation to the U.S. Open via the top two finishers not otherwise exempt earning spots at Winged Foot. >Werenski topped a leaderboard on which each of the six players who finished among the Top 5 and ties relied upon Titleist for their success … Following Werenski and Merritt on the first page were Fabian Gomez (Pro V1x, TS3 driver, 718 T-MB/AP2 irons, Vokey Design wedges, Scotty Cameron Tour Rat 2 putter) and Matthias Schwab (Pro V1x), who shared third place with 37 points, and Scott Stallings (Pro V1x, TS3 driver, TS3/917F2 fairway metals, U500/T100 irons, Vokey Design TVD wedges, Scotty Cameron GSS putter) and Robert Streb (Pro V1x, TS2 driver, TS3 fairway metal, TS3 hybrid, 718 T-MB/620 CB irons, Vokey Design SM8 pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo Knucklehead putter), who tied for fifth with 35 points. What’s in Rich Werenski’s Winning Titleist Bag? Pro V1x golf ball TS4 (10.5) driver TS3 (15.0) fairway metal 818H2 (17.0) hybrid T100 (3-5) / 620 MB (6-9) irons Vokey Design SM8 pitching (46), sand (54) and lob (60) wedges Scotty Cameron GSS putter Barracuda Championship Equipment Counts: Titleist led the golf ball count with 123 (79%) in play, over ELEVEN (11) more times the nearest competitor with 11 … Titleist was also the field favorite in drivers (40/26%), hybrids (29/40%), utilities (37/49%), irons (52/33%), wedges (246/56%) and putters (54/35%). LPGA: Danielle Kang closed with a 2-under 70 and held on for a one-shot victory over fellow Pro V1x player Celine Boutier in the LPGA Drive On Championship, the first LPGA Tour event since February … This was a one-time event for the LPGA, although it was contested at Inverness, site of next year’s Solheim Cup … Kang finished with a 7-under par 209 victory total under rapidly changing conditions throughout the weekend … The pair was tied going into the final round when Kang took for the lead for good on the 15th hole … The win was the fourth of Kang’s LPGA Tour career … She has won in each of her last four seasons, starting with the Women’s PGA Championship in 2017 … In addition to the Pro V1x, the winner also relied upon TS3 (13.5, 18.0) fairway metals, 716 CB (4-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (46), gap (50), sand (54) and lob (58) wedges, and a Scotty Cameron 009 putter for her success … This event was her first LPGA competition since Jan. 23 in Florida … Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players (110) accounted for 83 percent of the 132-player field … The LPGA Tour stays in northeast Ohio next week for the Marathon Classic.

Carlsbad, Calif. (July 19th, 2020) - One of the most consistent players on TOUR, TaylorMade's Jon Rahm won the Memorial at Muirfield Village GC with rounds of 69-67-68-75 to win by 3. © Getty Images In becoming world no.1, Jon becomes just the second Spanish golfer to reach the no.1 spot with Seve Ballesteros being the only other.

Rahm's OWGR end of year ranking by year is as follows: 2014: 1,548 2015: 585 2016: 137 2017: 6 2018: 4 2019: 3 2020: 1* (* year-to-date) Jon plays 14 TaylorMade clubs and balls including the SIM driver, two SIM fairways, P750 irons (which he has weakened since the re-start to adjust for a slight reduction in iron spin rates from his swing), MG2 wedges, Spider X and the TaylorMade TP5 ball. © Getty Images NEED TO KNOW This is Rahm's 4th PGA TOUR victory since turning professional in June 2016 Rahm moves to world no.1 for the first time in his career Jon switched into TP5 from the TP5X earlier this year for more spin and control with his irons and wedges Rahm weakened the lofts in his irons slightly as he was hitting them further since the break and wanted to better manage his trajectory and descent angle Cumulative through all 4 rounds, Jon was ranked 1st in SG: Tee to Green (+15.462) and SG: Around the Green (+6.261) JON RAHM WITB SIM 10.5 driver Aldila Tour X SIM 15.0 fairway Aldila Tour X SIM 18.0 fairway Graphite Design Tour AD X P750 4-PW MG Hi Toe 52° MG2 56° and 60° Spider X chalk TP5 #10 © Getty Images
  3. COLLIN MORIKAWA WINS SECOND PGA TOUR TITLE WITH VICTORY AT WORKDAY CHARITY OPEN Team TaylorMade's Collin Morikawa collects his 2nd PGA TOUR inside 12 months using SIM driver, SIM Max Rescue and TP5 ball, following a playoff. Carlsbad, Calif. (July 12, 2020) - A little over twelve months ago, Collin Morikawa turned professional and joined Team TaylorMade. Now, not even 24 years old, he has two PGA TOUR titles to his name. Morikawa, 23, shot rounds of 65-66-72-66 to win in a playoff after the 3rd extra hole to move to world no.13. © Getty Images Morikawa relied on his stellar iron play as well as his SIM Max Rescue 19° this week to reduce the par 5 5th hole to a eagle-birdie-birdie-eagle across all 4 rounds. Collin has two SIM Max Rescues that he interchanges depending on the course and approach shots he faces. He has a 19° that goes high, landing softly at 245 yards and another 19° that has a flatter trajectory landing at 245 yards with roll. © Getty Images NEED TO KNOW This is Morikawa's second PGA TOUR victory since turning professional in June 2019 Morikawa joins Tiger Woods as the only other player to have won two PGA TOUR titles before missing two cuts Collin added a SIM Max Rescue 19° to the bag which he used to devastating affect on the par 5s this week In the final round, Collin ranked #1 in SG: Approach the Green with +5.873 strokes gained vs. the field For all 4 rounds: SG: Tee to Green +13.530, SG: Approach the Green +9.752 Morikawa jumps to world 13 in the OWGR rankings with his victory today (previously no. 29) © Getty Images COLLIN MORIKAWA WITB SIM 8.0 driver Tensei White 70TX SIM 14.0 fairway Diamana D+ 80TX SIM Max Rescue Tensei White 100TX P750 4-5 DG X100 P730 6-PW DG X100 MG2 52° and 60° TP Juno TP5 #5
  4. Listening to Michael Breed this morning, he brought up a question for his listeners to chime in on and I thought it was an interesting question. So with apologies to Micheal for stealing his idea, let's hear your thoughts. So answer the poll above, and leave your reasons below. The topic was centered around Phil Mickelson, whether he'll play the US Senior Open this year---My Goodness, is he really 50?---or play the Travelers Championship being held the same week. Pros for the US Senior Open-It would be his first major as a Senior, it's at Newport Country Club--and if he won in some small way it would be a consolation prize for not winning a US Open. No, it wouldn't give him the Career Grand Slam. Pros for the Travelers-Annually one of the best tournaments of the year for the players, their families and caddies, in the way they are treated. Usually a strong field, and more importantly a win or good finish would help his point total toward the Ryder Cup.
  5. Is it fair to call them the No. 1 iron, driver, wedge in golf? Some notes below from a press release on just how domimate Titleist is on tour this year. PGA: It was a Titleist Brand Ambassador 1-2-3 finish at the regular season-ending Wyndham Championship, where Titleist Brand Ambassador J.T. Poston earned his first career PGA TOUR victory … Poston finished one shot clear of Webb Simpson and two better than Ben An … Viktor Hovland (Pro V1), finished solo 4th, another shot back … Closing with a career-best eight-under par 62 en route to a tournament record-tying 22-under 258 victory total, Poston became the first player since 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse … Simpson fired a final round 65 to secure his runner-up finish for the second straight week, while An, who held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, closed with a 67. >Eleven of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, and so did every other player who finished in the top 35 … That’s 34 of the top 35 finishers teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x with so much on the line at the PGA TOUR’s regular season finale. > Poston’s win advances the 2018-19 PGA TOUR victory total for Titleist golf ball players to 23, nearly four times the nearest competitor (6) and more than all other golf balls combined … A total of 120 (77%) players teed up a Titleist at the Wyndham Championship, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 14. > What’s in the Titleist Bags of the top three finishers at the Wyndham Championship: J.T. Poston: Pro V1x, TS3 (9.5) driver, TS2 (15) fairway metal, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 718 AP2 (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (46), gap (50), sand (55) and lob (60) wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo putter. Webb Simpson: Pro V1, TS3 (10.5) driver, TS2 (15) and 913Fd (18) fairway metals, 913Hd (20) and 915Hd (23.5) hybrids, New 620 MB (5-PW) irons, Vokey Design SM7 gap (54) and prototype lob (60) wedges. Ben An: Pro V1x, TS3 (8.5) driver, U-500 2-iron, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 620 MB (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (48), gap (52), sand (56) and prototype (60) lob wedges, Scotty Cameron TNP putter. > For the second time this season, the Titleist brand swept all eight major equipment categories on both the PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry Tour in the same week ... It is an achievement that had never been accomplished until Titleist made history by sweeping the Travelers Championship and Wichita Open in June ... The eight major tee-through-green equipment categories include golf balls, drivers, fairway metals, hybrids, utility irons, irons, wedges and putters ... The recently introduced T100 irons were the most played single model at the event with 15 sets in play, while the TS3 driver was the field favorite with 34. > At the Wyndham Championship, Titleist was the top choice across every category for the 11th time this year ... The other tournaments in which Titleist has topped every major equipment category include: 3M Open, Rocket Mortgage Classic, Travelers Championship, AT&T Byron Nelson, Wells Fargo Championship, Corales Puntacana Championship, Valspar Championship, Honda Classic, Farmers Insurance Open and Sony Open in Hawaii ... This marks the fourth time on the Korn Ferry Tour that Titleist has swept the counts.
  6. A buddy of mine is a former PGA Tour Caddie and current Sport Writer. He and some other caddies started this site that has a lot of great content. The Caddie Network, a lot of inside info from caddies that you may find interesting. Here's one piece that I thought was particularly interesting. https://www.thecaddienetwork.com/what-was-even-par-worth-on-the-pga-tour-in-the-2017-18-regular-season-for-player-and-caddie/ This is a fun read, that if a player shot even par on the tournaments he was qualified to enter for a full season, where do you think he'd finish on the money list. It'd be interesting to see everyone post their guess before reading the article.
  7. New to blog forums, so I look forward to any tips/coaching. Lookng for ways to introduce our Pro-Am tournaments, which bring the Next Generation of Fantasy Golf to golfers at 11,800 courses across the country.
