The Clubhouse is brought to you by Titleist, the #1 ball in golf, and the most played golf ball at the John Deere Classic – with 80 per cent of the field putting one in play at TPC Deere Run last week.

Last week at the John Deere Classic, Titleist golf ball loyalist Lucas Glover put the NEW Pro V1 golf ball in play for the first time in competition with immediate success, birding five of his final seven holes to claim his fourth PGA Tour victory.

Glover worked with Fordie Pitts, Titleist’s Golf Ball R&D Consultant on the PGA Tour, who said the “2021 Pro V1 gave Lucas the added spin he was looking for into the green, while still providing that tight, consistent flight he likes to see, especially in the wind”.

In fact, Glover finished 3rd in Strokes Gained: Approach and 4th in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green for the week, so head to Titleist.co.uk to find out how you can also benefit from the consistent performance of the #1 ball in golf.
