Press Release from Titleist
TITLEIST EQUIPMENT UPDATE: The Honda Classic
According to Darrell Survey, for the third time this season, Titleist achieved the feat of sweeping every major equipment category at a PGA TOUR event - this time it is The Honda Classic - and by looking at the counts, the choice is overwhelmingly clear.
From golf balls, to drivers, fairway and hybrids, and irons to wedges and putters, the Titleist brand is the overwhelming field favorite as the Tour moves from the west coast to the Florida swing.
> Titleist is the top choice in golf balls with 112 players in the field of 144 - that's 78 percent of the field and seven times the nearest competitor with 16.
> One out of every three drivers in the field is a Titleist with 48 (33%) in play this week - that's 16 more than the nearest competitor with 32.
> The Titleist TS3 continues to be the most played single driver model on the PGA TOUR with 29, nearly double the next closest driver model with 15.
> The Titleist TS3 is also the most played driver on the European Tour again this week with 29. That's 20 percent of the field playing that single model.
> Titleist irons also accounted for nearly one-third of the field with 46 (32%) sets in play - 21 more sets than the nearest competitor.
> The Titleist 718 MB (20) and the 718 AP2 (14) are the top two most played iron models this week.
> Titleist Brand Ambassador Peter Malnati is playing the 718 AP2 Black irons (5-9) that were recently released. Malnati was shipped the irons to his home in Tennessee during his off week but never got a chance to practice with them because of inclement weather. It was the only set he brought with him to the Honda Classic and worked them into his bag this bag this week. He joins Cam Smith as the two Titleist players putting the new AP2 Black models in play.
> More than half of all wedges in the field this week (220/55%) are of the Vokey Design variety. The nearest competitor has 60 wedges in play.
> Scotty Cameron putters are the overwhelming field favorite this week with 54 (38%) in play, 14 more than the nearest competitor.
> More players on the PGA TOUR rely upon Scotty Cameron putters than any other brand and tops the Tour in wins with 4 this season.
> Titleist equipment counts at The Honda Classic vs. the Nearest Competitor (NC):
TITLEIST - 112 (78%)
NC - 16 (11%)

Titleist Introduces New Players and Hybrid Golf Bag Collections – Players 4 Plus Model In Play This Week on PGA TourBy Golfspy_CG2
FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 28, 2019) – Titleist, Golf’s Symbol of Excellence, introduces five new golf bag models across two distinct categories – stand and hybrid – for the 2019 season.
TITLEIST PLAYERS COLLECTION: The Titleist Players Collection stand bags – Players 4 StaDry, Players 4 Plus and Players 4 – offer feature-rich designs for dedicated golfers seeking a lightweight stand bag without sacrificing storage or durability.
The Players 4 StaDry is the ultimate performance option for golfers that walk in all weather conditions. Fourteen percent lighter than the prior generation model, Players 4 StaDry offers the same lightweight construction and features as the Players 4 – including a 25 percent increase in strap padding for more comfort while carrying – but with premium waterproof materials and seam-sealed protection. The Players 4 Plus is designed for golfers seeking the versatility and comfort of a lightweight stand bag but with extra storage options.
To commemorate the launch, the Players 4 Plus will be on display this week on the PGA Tour, carried by the caddies of Titleist brand ambassadors competing in the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The black, white and red bag model is one of 13 colorways in the Players 4 Plus line.
TITLEIST HYBRID COLLECTION: The new Titleist Hybrid Collection bags are distinctly designed for golfers who like to walk and ride, offering the perfect blend of premium cart and stand bag features.
The two new models – Hybrid 14 and Hybrid 5 – combine the versatility of a Titleist stand bag with an added cart strap loop that allows access to the valuables pocket when strapped into the cart.
The Hybrid 14, with 14 full-length club dividers, provides superior organization with maximum storage, while the Hybrid 5 offers a more lightweight, cart-friendly design.
AVAILABILITY: The new Titleist Players and Hybrid Collection golf bags will be available in golf shops beginning Feb. 1, 2019, starting at $200. Customization is available on all bag models.

This is a press release from adidas golf regarding it's 2019 adicross line.
CARLSBAD, Calif. (November 28, 2018) – For golfers, the game never stops. adidas is continuing to push the boundaries with adicross, the urban-inspired, non-traditional line that’s meant for golfers both on and off the course. Today, adidas unveiled the 2019 adicross line, highlighted by Primeknit material and new footwear specifically designed for wear-anywhere versatility. The new apparel will be available December 1, 2018 and footwear beginning February 1, 2019. The spring/summer 2019 adicross apparel line differentiates itself by featuring select articles with adidas’ Primeknit material, a first in the game. Because of its seamless construction, the material wears flatter to the skin, features a lot of stretch, and has a look of a woven garment without losing its shape. These pieces are cool to the body, feature moisture-wicking fabric and will form for individual fit. Key articles include the adicross Primeknit Polo ($110), adicross Primeknit Sweatshirt ($200) and adicross Primeknit Anorak Hoodie ($180). Other new additions to the adicross spring/summer 2019 line include: adicross Piqué Polo ($80) Wider at the body with a straight silhouette Shaped hem, soft feel Unique golf print No-show Transition Henley Shirt ($70) Three-button Henley collar Short sleeves No-show technology stops appearance of sweat before it gets to the surface adicross Hybrid Shorts ($85) Stretchy fabric Front pockets, one back pocket Drawcord-adjustable elastic waist with zip fly adicross favorites like the No-Show Transition Polo ($75), Henley Long sleeve ($80), Anorak Jacket ($120), Graphic and Big Logo Tees ($40), Five-Pocket Pants ($90) and shorts ($75), Flat bill hat ($30), and Oxford Shirt ($90), which now features mesh ribbed cuffs, will round out the apparel line. Continuing to shake up the traditions of the game, the adicross line will also introduce new footwear: the adicross PPF and the Crossknit 3.0. The latter is the latest rendition of the popular Crossknit franchise that was first introduced in 2016. Built on the same last as adidas’ Ultraboost running shoe, this version will feature a lace closure with reflective laces and internal lace loops, a lightweight water-repellant heathered textile upper and the spikeless Puremotion outsole. The Crossknit 3.0 ($150) available in three colorways (grey, blue, and black with green outsole) is designed for comfort utilizing BOOST™ cushioning without sacrificing traction, favored by players who are looking for something both comfortable and untraditional. The adicross PPF ($90) is new to the adicross line, giving golfers another non-traditional spikeless footwear option for the course. The sneaker-like upper features leather, microfiber and textile materials to provide a breathable feel that’s also water-repellant. The Puremotion outsole features 169 strategically placed lugs for optimal traction and flexible Bounce midsole cushioning giving wearers a springy feel for wear-anywhere comfort. Both the Crossknit 3.0 and adicross PPF will be available online at adidas.com and at select retailers worldwide beginning Feb. 1, 2019. The entire adicross apparel line will be available online at adidas.com and at select retailers worldwide beginning Dec. 1. Here are just a few images.
