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:

> 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.

Today, I was greeted with a lovely Taylormade iron box. I walked into the door and saw the box and immediately asked my wife what it was. She replied with, "I don't know. You tell me?" I started going through my mind about all of the searches I've done recently. I got scared I pocket purchased a club on accident. I replied with, "I swear babe. I haven't bought anything. Especially with out telling you first." I opened the box and saw the below beauty sitting there. I picked up the card and was surprised to see I had been selected based on my response to a post. If I'm being perfectly honest, I can't even remember submitting anything to win the club. But none the less, I'm thankful for the opportunity.
Based on my initial thoughts of looking down at the club at address, it's nice. I don't have a feeling of oh shoot I have to be good to game these. The wide top line provides the confidence. The top line doesn't seem overly wide though. I'm a single digit handicapper right now and I could easily see myself gaming an entire bag of these. RANT INCOMING: (I really don't understand why most golfers want to have Blades. I get the allure of the sleek nature of the irons, but from a performance standpoint, if you can't put little round wear marks in your irons, I really don't believe blades is best. I know there can be outliers, but double digit handis definitely shouldn't be gaming blades. The point of irons isn't to look the best while you're at address. Save looking good for apparel. I'd rather have an iron that performs amazing but doesn't look the greatest. I understand the point of look good feel good though).
In the coming weeks, I plan on providing my unbiased review of this iron. I'm currently gaming the Taylormade PSI irons. We'll see how big of a difference a couple years makes for technology. I love the feel of the PSI's when I flush them. It seriously feels like butter when cutting through the ball and the grass. Coming from the S55's, it's amazing the difference in feel and forgiveness.
