Titleist Offering Free Ball Factory Tours

Recommended Posts

Interesting. I'd be interested to see what goes on and how they get made, although I'm not about to sign up to take a tour.

I got to tour the Bridgestone ball plant in GA about two months ago. I was blown away by how many steps there are to the process and how much quality goes into the production and then the inspection and testing of the balls before they leave the facility.

 

Really was impressive. I'm sure the Titleist one is even larger.

Well, think about it - joining Team Titleist gives them another name on their mailing list. Email blasts are VERY inexpensive marketing tools with varying degrees of effectiveness. 

 

And there's the rub...I'd like to see it but not by getting emailed constantly. So, it's a hard pass for me.

Don't you have or can't you set up a "contest/junk" etc email that you never really check, but can use for contest entries and thinngs like this. I know it might not be worth the effort, but it would avoid filling your email box with unwanted emails. 

 

I have one like that for such things (not Team Titleist, as I actually find their emails very informative and full of good content) but for other contests.

I've got a gmail one that I use as a throwaway account, but I guess I'm somewhat lazy.

Yeah, I'd get the same reaction if I tried to schedule it with the Fiance.   But, what about a spring golf trip with guys from the internet that you've never met.  Would she be on board with that  :D

      It’s been a while since I posted but it’s time to update what is in my bag for my first season of professional golf.
       

       
      There are definitely some improvements that I’m looking forward to but overall I’m pretty happy with my bag so far. It helps that this setup has me -2 thru 54 holes of tournament golf (and $1,200 in winnings) since the driver, 3wood and wedges went in the bag on June 23rd.
       
      So here is what is in my bag.

      Putter: Evnroll ER2 - P2 Aware Grip
      Ball: Titleist ProV1 Yellow

      Speed Trainer: Golf Stick Pro
       
      Carry Distances per GCQuad
      Dr (8.5*) - 290
      3w (14.25*) - 265
      2 (18*) - 245
      4 (21*) - 225
      5 (25*) - 215
      6 (29*) - 205
      7 (33*) - 195
      8 (37*) - 180
      9 (41*) - 165
      PW (45*) - 150
      50.F.12 - 133

      Not sure if anyone else has heard this yet or not, but I have been told that the new 720 irons (or whatever Titleist decides to call them) is set to release this August (2019). If so, I would totally expect to start seeing the announcements right before either the Masters or the recently moved PGA Championship. Anyone else have more info??
