This week, the European Tour is in Scotland for the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, home of the 2014 Ryder Cup. The Championship will be played over the PGA Centenary Course which measures 7,088 yards in length. It is the longest inland course in Scotland and fittingly begins by playing south-east towards the famed glen of the eagles.
There are a lot of Titleist staffers in play this week, so as expected, the Titleist Tour Support Vehicle has been frantic with activity getting the players ready for the week. An unexpected challenge was Titleist staffer Alexander Levy showing up with no golf clubs after they were lost in transit. With no time to spare, the team sprung into action and built Alexander a new set, which obviously worked as he shot an impressive -2 in his first round.
Other staffers in play this week and that have started the Championship well are Bernd Weisberger (-7), Brett Rumford (-6), Michael Hoey (-4), and Brooks Koepka (-4). Will it be one of these that lift the great trophy come Sunday, or will it be another one of our staffers that comes through the pack?
