European and Japan Tours Ball and Club Count

Recommended Posts

One of the areas we are going to strive to bring more information to the forum in the new year will be news from all the tours, both equipment news and anything else that we think is interesting or noteworthy.

But since most of us are here because we are equipment nerds, we'll try and focus on that mainly.   And I want to bring you more than just a simple WITB posting after a tour event, sure we have have that as well, but the goal is to go a bit deeper and provide more info than you'd normally see.    As such, we've reached out to all the OEM's to supply us with any tour news they have on a regular basis.    

In full disclose for simplicity sake many times, it will be just publishing a press release they have sent out.    Some OEM's may be better at this than others, so we just want to make it understood, it's not favoring any particular company but just an effort to provide the forum with as much info as you care to see from each company on it's equipment news/counts for the week.

So with the PGA Tour on break until January, we have some info from the European and Japan Tours provided by Titleist.    Quite honestly, I found some of this info surprising as well as interesting.   I always knew they dominated the ball market on tour, but the numbers are pretty eye opening, as well as it's performance in the club counts as well.

Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on this an all other info we post here going forward.  I know most of us that are avid golfers don't necessarily make our club/ball purchasing decisions based on tour usage, but if nothing else,  it'll make for some good conversation. 

edit: Sorry for the PDF I couldn't get it to save as a Pic for some reason.

 

Titleist Tour Counts Week of Nov 25.txt

 

 

Adding another count chart.  I found two things interesting on this one.  

2018COUNTS.pdf

1) On the PGA Tour Bridgestone has only 3% of the ball share, but yet had 13% of PGA Tour wins on the season.  I guess you could call that the Bryson effect with a little help from Tiger. 

2) Also the Australasian Tour Titleist had 100% of the wins.  There was some presences from the other companies in play, but all 13 victories went to Titleist.

Titleist Tour Counts Week of Nov 25.pdf


I would love to see Darrell survey information. Anyway to give us top to bottom counts, not just the OEM published information? Don’t even need players associated with the equipment, would just be interesting on a week to week basis to see what is played in tour (PGA, LPGA, Web, Symetra, European, LET, etc. )

It will be very interesting to see the spread of manufacturers in Europe and Asia professional tours. Especially in the irons and woods categories where we can see the David's of the golf industry thrive.

It's not clubs but balls, but here's another one on all the tours that I just added to the main post, for counts across all tours.

To be completely honest, nothing very shocking. Only thing that I do find interesting is that Titleist dominates at over 70% at nearly every tour except the Japan Tour, where Srixon takes a fairly large bite out of the ball share. Little home field advantage it seems

Yep. That was really the only tour where the numbers were a little less dominate by comparison.

Interesting that Bridgestone is so far behind Srixon in Japan. Wonder if they signed a popular national player like Srixon did with Hideki, if they would gain some share.

      Have been going through a complete overhaul of my bag the last 2 seasons. 
      Have upgraded Driver, 3 wood (both Cobra)
      irons just this year with some custom fit M5s
      now looking to upgrade wedges and putters
      Im about a 13 handicap. But have been always been a better than average putter. 
      Looking for a new Blade style putter. Read the recent testing review article but just wanted to see if anyone had any personal recommendations or feed back. 
      Wedges I am open to anything although I have been playing with a 56 and 60 degree last few years. 
      Thanks for reading and look forward to hearing what you guys have to say.

      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??

      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): 

      GOLF BALLS: 
      TITLEIST - 112 (78%) 
      NC - 16 (11%) 

      DRIVERS: 
      TITLEIST - 48 (33%) 
      NC - 32 (22%) 

      FAIRWAYS: 
      TITLEIST - 56 (31%) 
      NC - 37 (20%) 

      HYBRIDS: 
      TITLEIST - 25 (39%) 
      NC - 17 (27%) 

      IRONS: 
      TITLEIST - 46 (32%) 
      NC - 25 (17%) 

      WEDGES: 
      TITLEIST - 220 (55%) 
      NC - 60 (15%) 

      PUTTERS: 
      TITLEIST - 54 (38%) 
      NC - 40 (28%)
