It feels like we've only just turned the corner on the 2018-2019 wrap-around schedule, but in Shanghai, China, some of the PGA TOUR's best players have assembled to battle for one of the most prestigious titles of the season - the WGC HSBC Champions. The first of four World Golf Championship events, the HSBC Champions welcomes an elite field of 77 players to Sheshan International Golf Club, with 550 FedExCup points at stake.
And at the only PGA TOUR event hosted on Chinese soil, Titleist is once again the overwhelming golf ball of choice among players with 69% of the field (53 players in the limited field of 77) trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, nearly six times the nearest competitor with 12% (9 players) and more than all competitors combined.
Titleist is the top choice in hybrids (16) and irons, with 25 sets in play. Vokey Design Wedges also topped the approach, sand and lob wedge (102) category.
