This past week was a huge one around the world of golf, with star players like Luke Donald, Adam Scott, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Henrik Stenson earning victories in all corners of the globe. It was an even bigger week for Titleist, which earned the very first victories for both its 2013-14 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls with a matter of hours of each other.

The new wedges are the latest extension of Cleveland’s famed 588 line, and include the company's most advanced spin technology ever.
You may or may not be familiar with "Movember." During November each year, men take part in this movement where they cleanly shave their respective faces on Nov. 1, and then spend the rest of the month growing out a mustache (or "moustache" if you prefer) to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives.
Geoff Ogilvy, Johnson Wagner and Rickie Fowler have all taken part and three-time major champ Padraig Harrington is the latest golfer making the "misplaced eyebrow" famous.
