No doubt about it, Titleist is the choice of the PGA tour.
Liquid-filled center wound ball technology continues to be the most played technology on the Tour, and the superior quality and performance of Titleist is the choice of most players. However, Slazenger, Staff, Top Flite and Ram all make a superior ball. The Percept and Maxfli is as fine a ball as any made, they don't seem to have as much public relations to invest, or market share dollars as Titleist.
Who owns the professional market?
This has been a very controversial issue among golf manufacturers. Most popular or most tour victories -- choices that most recently Orlimar and Callaway went to war over. While important for marketing strategy, a lot of people view this topic as an irrelevant one to the average player since many golfers are on lucrative contracts with the manufacturers. Do they choose based on money or actual performance? All major manufacturers will, and often do, alter their clubs to satsify pros. So if you have a lucrative contract, and the driver is not performing, it's easy for the clubmakers to alter the club to suit most people.
Putting for dough. Mallet, blade, insert, milled .....
Putters by Carbite are one of the best selling styles. The carbide inserts in Carbite putters allow more touch and accuracy. There are balata inserts and they perform in a similar fashion. Mallet style putters such as Odyssey, allow a heavier head for slower motion and control. Blade putters are generally for players with great touch and are very common among the PGA Tour. A few of the hottest putters on tour are from the Titleist Scotty Cameron series and Ping. These putters are often based on feedback from many pros.
