There’s a list of invitations that golfers shouldn’t turn down.

Most golfers will have on their lists tickets to The Masters, and a tee time at the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course. For golf equipment junkies, TaylorMade’s club fitting facility, The Kingdom, has to be on the list.

That’s why five lucky GolfWRXers answered TaylorMade’s call to take place in a driver fitting of the The Kingdom at company headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif., as well as a round at Aviara Golf Club and a tour of the TaylorMade Tour Van during Tuesday’s practice round at the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles, Calif.

Titleist is celebrating 70 years as the No. 1 golf ball played at the U.S. Open this week. The streak started at the 1949 U.S. Open at Medinah C.C., which Cary Middlecoff won. According to Titleist, 32 players in the 1949 U.S. Open field used a Titleist ball, compared to 28 using the ball of nearest competitor. In the 2017 U.S. Open, 102 players used a Pro V1 or Pro V1x.

To commemorate that streak, Titleist created a golf balls printed with the number 70 on them to give to Titleist players. And actually, Zach Johnson and Andrew “Beef” Johnston have decided to use them in competition this week.
