GOLF BALL SPECIALIST

ANTHONY WILLIAMS

Area: South West, Wales and Southern England

What do you enjoy most about your role as a Titleist Golf Ball Specialist?
The travel. I like visiting new places and countries.

What’s the biggest performance gain you’ve seen during a fitting?
Seeing a high handicap Lady Golfer hit 50 yard pitch shots with her ball of choice and it rolling through the green and then getting the correct ball in play she was able to pitch the ball close and stop within inches of the cup several times in row, all within tap in range.  

Listening and working with a Tour Player who needed the ball to perform differently. We fitted and changed it the week of a tournament and he finished top 10.

What’s your favourite part of the bag to fit a consumer for?
The Golf Ball - Often the most overlooked piece of equipment in the bag but the most important to get right.

What was the first Titleist club you fit a consumer for?
975J

What’s your golf story? How did you first get in to golf?
My Dad took up the game and I'd tag along to the driving range when he would have lessons and practice. I got the bug pretty much straightaway and never looked back.

What’s your favourite course to play?
Favourite course I've played is Wentworth, West course. I like the style of the course and play well when I play it.

What’s your favourite Titleist memory? Visiting the Ball Plants in Boston. It was an inspiring visit seeing the attention to detail from every Member of the Team that goes into making the #1 Ball In Golf.

If you weren’t a Titleist Product Specialist, what would you be doing?
I'm a PGA Professional also so I'd be teaching and fitting.

Pro V1 or Pro V1x?
Pro V1x - I need the height and spin.
Do you prefer to play in rain or wind?
I play better in the rain so rain!

Parkland or Links golf?
Parkland - One of my earliest memories of Golf is watching Ian Woosnam winning The Masters and falling in love with Augusta National.

Drive for Show or Putt for Dough? and explain
Putt for Dough - Nothing better than draining a long putt on the last green to win!
