Titleist Golf Balls leading the way for day 2 at Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles California. The Northern trust open has produced a tough lineup of competitors in the fighting for the top spot, but Jason Kokrak takes the cake with a 7 under 64, leaving him to start day 3 at -10. Team Titleist seems to have the best golf balls and golfers for the start of day 3 at the Riviera. With 8 players of the 13 tied for the top 10 spot, using Titleist golf balls. Jason Kokrak(V1x), Chez Reavie(V1x), Bubba Watson(V1x), Troy Merritt(V1), Kyle Riefers(V1), Luke List(V1x), Justin Leonard(V1x), and former Masters Champion Adam Scott(V1). The next closes golf ball brand would be tied for 2nd place with 2 players each, Nike and Srixon.
With 35 birdies in just their top 8 players, team Titleist and their Pro V series golf balls, have definitely made a statement. Now whether they simply have the most professionals playing their golf balls or whether they are actually the best performing golf balls available, will probably forever be debated. Nike Golf has Rory Mcllroy and Charl Schwartzel in the hunt and Srixon has K.J. Choi and Hideki Matsuyama who has been hot ever since defeating Rickie Fowler, in the playoff at the Waste Management Open earlier this month, all trying to get the win this week. Lets also no forget Dustin Johnson, for team Taylormade, who has been playing this course quite well, shooting a nice 66 in round 2 with his Tour Preferred X model golf ball.
As Day 3 at the Northern Trust Open begins this morning, it will be interesting to see which golf ball takes or holds onto the lead. With as many Titleist golfers and golf balls in the hunt, it will be a good challenge for the others. Congrats again to Jason Kokrak and his 8 birdies, shooting 64 and putting himself in the lead at -10!
