Well, the biennial Ryder Cup is in the books and Team USA failed to retain the Cup again losing on European soil.

From the standpoint of equipment endorsements, the 24 players are fairly evenly split between the major manufacturers. The drivers and balls in play as always were TaylorMade and Titleist dominated with 15 of the competitors teeing up Titleist Pro V1/Pro V1x balls and 10 playing a TaylorMade model driver.

In Case Anyone Should Ask:

Driver vs. Driver: Wilson Golf will select its next model driver with the second season of Driver vs. Driver airing on the Golf Channel starting Oct. 2. Fourteen club designers will vie for a $250,000 cash prize which will be at retail the day after the final episode on Nov. 13. Two years ago, the original Driver vs. Driver winning design was the Triton model which did not achieve the acceptance by golfers Wilson was looking for though designer Eric Sillies did take home $500,000.
