Titleist Again The #1 Golf Ball At The Open 2017

Whilst we're unsure of who will win the Claret Jug on Sunday, there is no doubt over which golf ball is the most-trusted in the race to become Champion Golfer of the Year.

Remaining #1 since records began at golf’s oldest Major, more of the world’s best golfers continue to choose Titleist golf balls at The Open than any other brand.

Tested: New Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls

Of the 156-strong field, 103 players (66%) will rely upon the #1 ball in golf, compared to 13% for the nearest competitor.

This mirrors the counts seen every week across worldwide professional tours.
