The Clubhouse is brought to you by Titleist, the number one ball in golf, trusted by US Women's Open champion Yuka Saso, Memorial winner Patrick Cantlay, and Porsche European Open Champion Marcus Armitage.

Saso trusted the new Pro V1 golf ball to make history and claim a maiden major victory at The Olympic Club this weekend - becoming the first golfer from the Philippines to win a major championship and tying the record for the youngest ever U.S. Women's Open champion.

her stunning display was replicated by Titleist Brand Ambassador Patrick Cantlay. He relied on a full bag of Titleist equipment, including the new Phantom X 5 putter, to secure his fourth PGA Tour win and second Memorial Tournament victory in two years.

And that wasn't Titleist's only success at Muirfield Village. As the #1 brand in golf also swept the equipment categories in Ohio, topping the golf ball, driver, fairway, hybrid, utility iron, iron, wedge and putter counts for the second week running on the PGA Tour.

Finally, in a late Monday finish on the European Tour, Marcus Armitage placed his trust in the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball as he posted an amazing final round 65 to claim his maiden tour title at the Porsche European Open.
