Earlier this week Team Titleist made the trip to Akron, Ohio to check in with the field at WGC at Firestone Country Club - the last stop before the season's final major. The 78-player field features 49 of the top 50 players in the world and promises to be a showcase of the top talents in golf.
This week offers veteran WGC players like Titleist Brand Ambassador and defending champion Adam Scott along with Bill Haas and Ben Crane one final tune-up before traveling to Kiawah, SC in search of their first major victory. For other WGC first-timers like Titleist Brand Ambassador Bernd Weisberger, Firestone is a tough challenge after his victory at the Lyoness Open.
In total, 46 players in the field are trusting Titleist golf balls for their success, more than four times the nearest competitor with 11 and more than all other golf balls combined. Titleist is also first in iron sets (22) and sand, lob and approach wedges (102).

2,000 miles away in "The Biggest Little City in the World" at the PGA Tour's Reno-Tahoe Open, 87 players in the field are trusting Titleist golf balls for their success, more than six times the nearest competitor with 14 and more than all other golf balls combined.
Titleist is also first in iron sets (30); sand, lob and approach wedges (136); and putters (54).
Good luck to both fields and here's to a weekend filled with great golf!
