Join Titleist's Michael Breed and Frederick Waddell, as they explain the process of testing feel, flight and spin of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.
As Titleist staff member James Sieckmann shares in this video, simply using a premium golf ball like Titleist Pro V1, Pro V1x or AVX, along with relatively new Vokey wedges (grooves not significantly worn down) will make a huge difference in optimizing your performance when you execute a finesse shot properly.
If you want to hit your irons with the same authority as the pros on tour, you need to fundamentally change your approach. Learn how with Titleist.
Follow Jonathan Yarwood's advice on how a ProV1x Custom Alignment logo (available on all Titleist golf balls) can take your putting game to the next level.

our match was even after the 8th hole when the 8 iron shot bounced once then trickled left and in the jug to win the side 1 up. my pro v1 #3 was dialed in with the usual consistence of titleist. after screams and high fives, the match continued. my son had his first ace when he was 14 with the same type of ball pro v1. we applaud you. thank you titleist for being a major part of my game and my life.. thanks mark b.

I have an identical twin brother and father and we play quite a bit of golf together. Often we round out the foursome with a vary close family friend, Harry. My brother and I have very close indexes, and my father and Harry have close indexes. We all decided it would be fun to split up my brother and I and team up with either my father or Harry. We would play 36 holes best ball match play and no strokes. The winning team would pick a local restaurant of choice and the loosing team would have to foot the bill for dinner including wives. As both my brother and dad play Titleist Pro V1, and both I and Harry play Pro V1x, that was the deciding factor in the teams. Last but not least, we have had this team match 5 different times and do it no more than once a year. After the first match, we all purchased green jackets and wear them to the "awards dinner." Attached is a picture of the four of us at one of the dinners. By the way, Pro V1x is ahead 3 matches to 2. Thanks, Mark

It's hard to be modest when one scores a hole in one........but doing it during my senior club championship makes it even sweeter..... Leading by a reasonable margin, and waiting for a lengthy period of time in the fairway of the 15th hole, I promptly buried a short iron under the face of the bunker to make a double. Tournament still well in hand....... Arriving at the 16th hole, a great par three with 3 levels, the pin was on the front and a short 109 yards over water. The only significant problem was spinning the shot off the front of the green by the pin, back into the water. Choking down on a PW to take some spin off, my Pro V1 X landed 2 feet short of the hole, bounced just past, and in true form, backed up just enough to disappear into the hole. The best part???? The drink cart had just pulled up!!! Thank you Titleist for a great ball which contributed to a great experience....and Club Championship....

May, 2011 About an 18 handicap at the time. Just started a new job at a good company. One guy takes me to his club to play a round a few months into my new job (first time I played with him). We get to the 14th tee box and it was a 172 yard par 3 over water. It was a 5i for me at the time so I strike a dead straight shot right at the pin. No one saw it go in or on the green so we thought it might have gone over. So they hit their balls, we go up to the green and there isn't a ball on the green. I thought, "I hit that really well, it's probably over the green." I walk behind the green without looking in the hole, looking in the rough. My buddy walks straight up to the hole behind me, looks in the hole and looks at me and says, "You son of a gun." He started laughing and I went nuts! Pro V1 392 , been playing Pro V1 ever since, how can you not? Still have the ball today!

I've been playing golf since I was 11 years old and was fortunate enough to have my first ace. 143 yards with a 7-iron (still using my old Titleist DCI's from 1995). Had my son and two others with me so it was a real treasure to be able to share the experience with him. I had just recently ordered several dozen boxes of ProV1's with our company logo on them so it was extra special to be playing with one of those balls and find the ball in the hole upon our arrival at the green. I was in a state of shock so I didn't quite know how to celebrate. Made the mistake of teeing off on the next hole with the ball but then came to my senses and stuck it away safe and sound in my bag. Not just saying this because it's Titleist website but the Pro V1 is an amazing golf ball. I'm sold on using them for the rest of my golfing days. Thanks Titleist!

I have been playing the Chrome Soft Truvis Yellow ball for several years. Prior to that I played with ProV1's. I forgot to bring balls with me to the course on Friday 6/12/20 so I only had 2 balls to begin my round. I lost one ball on our 10th hole. On our 12th hole I lost my last ball and was not in a very good state of mind at that point. While searching for my ball I found another ball that was not in use by anyone in our group. The ball happened to be a ProV1 that had two nice blemishes already in place. It was the only ball I had on me so I put the ball in play and proceeded to make a great bogey. I made birdie on hole 13 and kept it in play as I teed it up on our par 3 14th hole playing 140 yards. It was a bit downwind and I proceed to one hop it right into the hole with my PW. I was fortunate to be able to see and hear it go in as it hid the pin. I was very fortunate that the COVID foam inserts in use did not deny entry into the cup! It will be a ball I cherish for the remainder of my golfing days. I have a new supply of the new Yellow ProV1's in the works. Thanks Titleist for manufacturing great balls and equipment...you have a new customer here in KY!

I have played golf over 20 years and used to think the ball didn't matter. About 5 years ago my buddy and I won the Furman member guest so I used my gift certificate to get some golf balls. I chose the Titleist Pro V1, 1 dozen and 2 sleeves. I could not believe the difference, all my buddies were saying your using the expensive balls. I have never looked back. I will only play Titleist now. Thank you for making the perfect ball.

I have to be honest I have always used Big Bertha products especially golf balls. No real reason behind it just what I used. Well my golf game got a little blah, no real improvement nor was I falling back. So I decided I was going to get some Titleist Pro V 1. Sure enough the very first round I played with the new golf balls I hit my very first hole in one. It was a 173 yard par 3. Needless to say I will use titleist balls for the rest of my golfing days.

I am 71 years old. I have played golf since I was 13 years old. I have had two holes-in-ones. Both were in the last 15 years. Thursday a week ago, I shot a score below my age. A dream of mine for the past 5 years. I shot a 1 under 70 at Wilimington Island Golf Club. I have played most major named golf balls ever made in the last 58 years. Both hole-in-ones and the score of 70 was while if was playing the Pro V1 ball. Pro V1, a great product and a great Memory Maker.

the 11th hole at Highland Park has a very tricky and undulating green. I was very lucky with my tee shot, as it was way left of the hole, but it trundled down the slope into the hole. Did not know till I reached the green. Thank you Titleist for finally making a yello PROV 1. Todd May

Last hole on a windy day. 166yds with 145 of water. Thought about using an 8i, but went with my 7i. Wind was in my face. Hit it hard and landed in front fringe. Took 2 hops, rolled into right side of cup (barely). Shot a horrible 45 on the back, so it was a great way to end the round. Miller Lites all around the club house!

22 November 2019 - Cumberland Country Golf Club 3rd Annual Par 3 Comp. A very, windy and smokey summer day with extreme weather conditions and fire hazards across the state. I used a Pro VI with my fairway Wood. This was the hardest Par 3 on this course, 210m out. With a little bit of a draw over the water and bunker the ball checks in a metre away from the hole and rolls in. There were 4 ladies that witnessed the ball go into the hole and hearing their screaming I was excited to hear confirmation that I did indeed get a hole in one. I think using the Pro VI gave me understanding on how to shape the ball.... A very exciting moment indeed :)

I'm 75 years old, have had both hips replaced and have had both shoulders replaced because of a fall on the golf course in 2009, now have two reverse shoulders instead of rotator cuffs. I've was playing with the Maxfli golf ball yesterday, and on the 6th hole I decided to change to the PRO V1 I had in my golf bag. On holes 7/8/10 had birdies on hole 11 had a hole in one(#6). I have made the stupid mistake of trying to play good golf with less expensive golf balls, yet I spent lots of $$ on new clubs and shoes, I left out the most important item of all----THE BALL. I can practice all I want, but will now be using the TITLEIST PRO V1. After my round yesterday, and after buying drinks for the group I was playing with, I immediately went and bought a dozen PRO V1s and they are now in my bag, and the other less expensive balls are in the car trunk. You just can't play good golf and leave out the most important item THE BALL.

Have only really been playing golf for about a year and 1/2, and at first really did not pay much attention to what ball I was using. A friend gave me a box of Pro V1's and said "once you play these, you won't play any other balls". At first I thought, whatever but he was right! No ball performs like the Pro V1 around the greens, and that is coming from a guy who is really just getting into the game. Have also used the NXT Tour ball and am very impressed witht hat product for the price. Great product from a great company. Thanks, Shaun

PGA TOUR | AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am The champion of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am trusted his Pro V1 to a two shot-victory, making eagle on Pebble Beach’s famed par-5 18th to close out his fourth win on the PGA TOUR The winner – who ended the week T-3 in Greens in Regulation and 1st in Scrambling (87.5%) – was one of five players in the Top 6 to play a Titleist golf ball. Tying for third were Titleist Brand Ambassadors Jordan Spieth [Pro V1x, NEW TSi3 driver, TS2 fairway, 818H2 hybrid, T100 irons, Vokey SM8 wedges, Scotty Cameron 009 putter], who earned his second Top-4 finish in two weeks, and Patrick Cantlay [Pro V1x, TS3 driver, 915F fairway, 816H2 hybrid, 718 AP2 irons, Vokey SM7 & SM8 wedges, Scotty Cameron GSS putter], who moved to the top of the FedEx Cup Standings. More players teed up NEW 2021 Pro V1 and Pro V1x at Pebble Beach than all competitors’ golf balls combined, as players continue to make the switch into the new models. Titleist was the most played driver at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am with 48 players, 14 more than the nearest competitor, and was also the most played golf ball with 115 players teeing up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x . In addition to golf balls and drivers, Titleist was also the #1 fairway metal, utility iron, hybrid, iron and wedge at the event. Titleist golf ball players have 13 wins so far this PGA TOUR season (nearest competitor: 2). HOMA ADDS NEW PHANTOM X 11.5 Max Homa put a NEW Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11.5 tour prototype in play after working with Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Drew Page early in the week at Pebble Beach. Homa, who had used his trusty Futura T5W all but two weeks since the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open, ended the week T-7 while finishing ninth in Strokes Gained: Putting. “It’s very similar to his previous gamer in terms of look and offset but provides him with a little more stability and additional alignment features that he didn’t have with his T5W,” Page said. “It also has a solid milled steel face which he prefers because of the feedback it gives him on the hit.” The NEW Phantom X models, just announced this week, are available in golf shops beginning March 26. LASHLEY SWITCHES TO NEW PRO V1 x Nate Lashley put NEW Pro V1x in play for the first time at last week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, following a testing session with Fordie Pitts of Titleist Golf Ball R&D . “Nate put in some work with NEW Pro V1x on TrackMan and liked the numbers he was seeing,” Pitts said. “He was gaining a little more height and spin compared to his current ball (prior generation Pro V1x), which we felt would benefit him especially when conditions get firmer and harder. He took it on the course for additional testing, liked what he saw, and put it right in play.” Lashley started off well with his NEW Pro V1x, opening with a 64 in Phoenix. This week, he opened with a 65 Thursday on his way to a T-5 finish, his best so far in 2021. TITLEIST DRIVERS AND METALS THE TOP CHOICE AT PEBBLE Titleist was once again the most played driver this week on the PGA Tour with 48 players, 14 more than the nearest competitor. Jordan Spieth [Titleist TSi3 10.5, Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 X] was one of 43 players who teed up a NEW TSi model. That includes the recent winner of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, who finished T-5 this week playing his TSi3 9.0 (Mitsubish Diamana D+ Limited 70 TX). He has finished T-5 (The American Express), 1st (Dubai Dester Classic), T-12 (Saudi International) and T-5 (Pebble Beach Pro-Am) since putting the new TSi in play. “I put a new driver in, and I don't often talk about equipment, but I put a Titleist driver in the bag… I feel like I’m driving the golf ball like I did when I was playing my best golf, when I was 3 in the world or whatever, and that's – I feel like this rejuvenation,” he said following his victory in Dubai. Titleist was also the most played fairway metal and hybrid in the event. TITLEIST T100 IRONS LEAD THE WAY, SPIETH ADDS 4-IRON Titleist was the most trusted iron at Pebble Beach, while Titleist T100 was the top model in play, as it has been every week since the RSM Classic last November. At the recent Farmers Insurance Open, Jordan Spieth added a 4-iron to his set of T100s, replacing his U•500 utility, to achieve a slightly flatter trajectory through California’s coastal winds, and has kept it in play. “At Torrey Pines there were a lot of shots he needed to hit in that distance range, and he was looking for a little flatter flight through the wind,” said Titleist Tour Rep J.J. VanWezenbeeck . “We built him a T100 4 iron (True Temper Project X 6.5) with a slightly longer shaft length to match ball speed he was getting from the U500, but with the launch window he wanted.” PGA TOUR OF AUSTRALASIA | The Moonah Links PGA Classic Bryden Macpherson trusted a NEW Pro V1 , NEW TSi3 driver and bag full of Titleist equipment to claim his fourth professional victory at Moonah Links’ Open Course. Macpherson [2021 Pro V1, TSi3 driver, TSi2 Fairway, U500 3 iron, 620MB irons and Vokey SM8 wedges] rallied with a tournament-best 8-under 64 to win by one shot and lead a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players. It was the second consecutive win by on the PGA TOUR of Australasia for the New Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls and NEW TSi drivers. Chris Wood won last week playing a NEW Pro V1x and NEW TSi3 driver. More players trusted Titleist golf balls (98 players/88%) and drivers (62 players/56%) than all competitors combined. … #TeamTitleist

My name is Evan Brown, I am 10 years old and I got my second hole in one on January 19,2020 at Boulder Creek Golf Club in Boulder City, Nevada. I was playing in the US Kids Western Cup for Team Coachella. I used a 7 Iron from 99 yards on Hole #8, Coyote Run. I used a yellow Pro V-1 given to me by Champions Tour Pro Billy Andrade. Billy was the first professional to ever win a Tournament with the Pro V-1 in competition in Las Vegas, 2000. I was born 9 years later!

I have been playing golf for about 40 years. My first Hole in One didn't occur until 2013. Now, I just had my second during this crazy year of 2020! Before my first, I had always hoped that if I had an Ace, that it would occur following a really sweet shot, with great friends as my witnesses, and that I would be able to actually see it roll into the hole. Luckily, I have been blessed with all my wishes on both occasions. Thank you Titleist -- you make a fantastic golf ball!!!

Hit my second Ace yesterday. Both balls were titleist pro v1 golf balls with cart path marks on them. Yesterday was a 7 iron from 148 yards. the first was a 6 iron from 161. My father in law got to witness the hole shot yesterday. There was another single playing with us who saw it too. Both had never seen one before. I bought a round crown and cokes and we eat some Ahi. Great time. If you want to hit hole in one hit a Titleist pro V1.

I came off back to back double bogies, went to the bag for a brand new Pro V1. Birdied the next 2 holes, a par 3 and 4. I then proceeded to fly one in for an ace on the next par 3. Six shots for 3 holes...you never know do you?

Call me an unlikely Pro V1 user. I'm not an 18 year old kid playing on the tour. I'm nearly 65 with arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis and flatulitis. You won't find me at Pebble Beach, but at the municipal course at 5:30 a.m., drinking convenience store coffee, waiting for the dewsweeper special to begin. I love the Pro V1 ball, and I've played them all over the past 50 plus years. I get great distance off the tee, to the amazement of the kids that I end-up being paired with, and great control around the green thanks also to my Vokey wedges. I would be most happy to have you sponsor me. A couple of hats, a shirt (L) and a sleeve or two of balls should do the trick. To be able to tell the kids at the course that I'm being sponsored by Titleist - PRICELESS. Keep making the great gear. Dave

A few months ago I decided to try the cally Chromesoft. It was OK, but I felt that I wasn’t getting the performance I wanted, both in distance and greenside action. So I switched back to the Pro V1 last week. Then, yesterday, I had a hole-in-one! I’m never switching golf balls again. It’s the Titleist Pro V1 forever!

This was a school project written by my 15 year old daughter who now plays on her high school golf team. I introduced her to the game when she was 9. She has never played with anything other than a ProV1.I figured if its the #1 ball in golf, its the one for her to play. This doesnt sound unique until I tell you that every ball she has ever hit I have found in the woods or water hazards on our local golf courses in the Northeast Ohio area.I scrub and try to clean off the scuff marks on every Pro V1 I find so when I give them to her to play with she feels special.

I was participating in a golf tournamnet benefitting the Cambridge, Minnesota high school football team. Our group was on the 175 yard 6th hole at Purple Hawk Golf Course. There was a wind at my back so I used a 9 iron. The ball bounced twice on the green and into the cup. Behind the hole was a new 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, which was the prize for scoring a hole in one. Once we saw the ball go in the hole, all 4 us started running towards the green and yelling with excitement. The sponsor had a person near the green monitoring every shot for verification of a hole in one. There was a foursome on the 7th tee who also witnessed the shot they started cheering loudly. People in the club house could hear the excitement and many jumped in golf carts and rushed to the 6th green. The sponsor later told me he had been sponsoring tounaments for 17 years and this was the first time he had to give away a new car.

I am 35 years old and have been playing since I was 7-8. My current GHIN handicap is 5.8. Never had a hole in one before. Today May 7, 2020 around 2:00 PM I was not the 7th hole at Teugega Country Club in Rome, NY. The hole is a 135 yard down hill par three. Due to the wind I played a pitching wedge. The ball landed approximately an inch to left of cup, bounced past the hole before spinning back and dropping. The shot was witnessed by my good friend and co-worker who I play most rounds with! Ball was a Titleist Prov1.

I wasn't expecting much, strong gust of wind left to right. normal club i was going to use was my 5 Iron for 162 yard par three, but decided to go with my 4 iron, did not want to hit the ball in the water so I went with my 4 iron. The ball flight was straight at the flag, sew the ball land on the green, pick up my tee and did not see the ball again, couple of my friends said it in the hole. The first thing that came to my mind was that it rolled off the back side of the green. until we check the hole and sure enough it was in the cup. MY second ACE in five years.

Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players swept all three events held last week around the world. With January 2021 now in the books, a total of 1,836 players have teed up a Titleist golf ball so far this year, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 219. Titleist golf ball players combined for 16 wins last month, compared to the nearest competitor with two. All three winners also teed up a NEW TSi driver , with more new TSi models in play on the PGA TOUR and European Tour than any other driver. EUROPEAN TOUR | Omega Dubai Desert Classic Paul Casey (Pro V1) claimed his 15th European Tour title, closing in 2-under 70 for a four-shot victory. Casey was one of four Titleist golf ball players in the top five, including Brandon Stone who finished runner-up playing NEW Pro V1 . Kalle Samooja also teed up NEW Pro V1 , finishing tied for fourth with Laurie Canter (Pro V1) . The win pushed Casey inside the Top 15 of the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time since December 2019. CHAMPION CHOOSES TSi The winner was one of 36 players in the field playing a NEW TSi driver , with 41 percent of those players teeing up TSi without an agreement. He made the switch to the new model (TSi3 9.0°, Mitsubish Diamana D+ Limited 70 TX, 44.5”), along with a new TSi2 16.5° fairway metal (Mitsubish Diamana D+ Limited 80 TX, 42.5”), last week at The American Express following extensive offseason testing. “I've switched drivers. So part of the reason for the good performance the last two weeks, I finished 8th last week in California and then obviously win today,” he said in his post-victory press conference. “I put a new driver in, and I don't often talk about equipment, but I put a Titleist driver in the bag. Don't ask me the exact specs, TSi3 or something like that. But I feel like I’m driving the golf ball like I did when I was playing my best golf, when I was 3 in the world or whatever, and that's – I feel like this rejuvenation.” On Sunday, he averaged 313 yards (8th) off the tee while hitting 79% of his fairways (2nd). For the week, he finished T-8 in Strokes Gained Off the Tee. “He reached out to us over the offseason and said he’d heard a lot of really good things about the driver,” said Titleist Tour Rep J.J. Van Wezenbeeck . “We were going back and forth on phone and text, I was building different options and shipping them to him, and then getting feedback. He was really impressed with the ball speeds he was getting with TSi3 , but the big thing for him was the overall performance. The driver he was playing last year, he felt that when he missed it, his misses were big. With TSi3, the misses were really tight. He loved the head shape and the feel, but it was that total performance package that really stood out.” Upon arrival this week at Emirates Golf Club, he worked with Titleist European Tour Rep Liam McDougall on a couple driver adjustments – changing the SureFit hosel setting from A•1 to B•2, and moving the SureFit CG track from neutral to H1 – to lower his ball flight in preparation for the windy week in Dubai, while promoting a more right-to-left shape. “We were able to move his strike location through adjustments to the SureFit hosel and CG weight, which brought his flight down and helped him turn the ball over a fraction more,” McDougall said. “The new setup also helped even more with his misses and minimizing the slight curve to the right.” PGA TOUR Farmers Insurance Open: Patrick Reed (Pro V1) closed in 4-under 68 Sunday at Torrey Pines, making birdie on 18 to complete a five-shot victory for his 9th PGA TOUR title. Reed, who ranked first for the week in Strokes Gained: Around the Green, topped a leaderboard featuring four Titleist golf ball players in the top six, with Ryan Palmer (NEW Pro V1x) , Tony Finau (Pro V1) and Victor Hovland (Pro V1) among the five players who tied for second. It was Reed’s fourth win with Pro V1 , following his switch from a competitive model in the weeks leading up to his victory at the 2018 Masters. A total of 109 players in the field teed up a Titleist golf ball, more than six times the nearest competitor with 18. CHAMPION CHOOSES TSi Titleist continues to be the preferred driver on the PGA TOUR, with 49 players teeing up Titleist drivers at the Farmers Insurance Open, 16 more than the nearest competitor. The winner [Titleist TSi3 9.0, Aldila Rogue Silver 70 TX] was one of 45 players to tee up a NEW TSi model, and one of 14 players to do so without an agreement. TSi was also the choice of the champion at this week’s Omega Duba Desert Classic on the European Tour. A combined total of 88 players played Titleist drivers across both events, with 91% being new TSi2 , TSi3 or TSi4 driver models. Of those players choosing to play new a TSi driver, 35 percent (14 at Farmers, 14 at Dubai) did so without an agreement. NEW WEDGE GRIND FOR ADAM SCOTT Adam Scott put a new Vokey Design SM8 60.12D in the bag at Torrey Pines following a testing session with Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill last week at the Titleist Performance Institute. The new wedge replaced Scott’s low-bounce 60.06K, which he had been playing since 2012. Dill said: “Adam chose the K Grind a long time ago because it’s such a good bunker club and extremely forgiving – and he stayed loyal to it for a long time. It takes a lot for Adam to switch into a new wedge, but he wanted to test options that gave him more performance from the fairway, and made it easier to flight the ball lower while keeping his spin high. The sole on the K Grind he had been using makes that difficult, because it has a low bounce angle. The D Grind has a high bounce angle, so it makes sure that the ball hits the lower parts of the face, making the spin go up and the flight go down." “Over time Adam found that with his old gamer he became a little bit more aware of how he swung the club, and wasn’t being as aggressive as he wanted to be. So instead of just thumping the ground and hitting a good shot, he had to be a little bit more cautious about how he hit it. The new setup freed him up to swing a little faster and harder, hit the ground a little harder and get that low launch and high spin he wanted.” ZALATORIS ADDS UTILITY Will Zalatoris (Pro V1) earned his fourth Top 10 of the 2020-21 season with a new utility iron, trading in his hybrid for a Titleist U•500 3-iron (Nippon NS Pro Modus 3 GOST). Zalatoris made the change after a session at the Titleist Performance Institute with Titleist Tour Rep Dino Antenucci , remarking on the increased control and ability to flight it. PGA TOUR OF AUSTRALASIA | The Players Series Victoria @ Rosebud CC Brad Kennedy trusted a Pro V1x , TSi2 driver and full bag of Titleist clubs to win the inaugural Tournament Players Series Event at Rosebud Country Club. Kennedy hit his approach to 2 feet on the last hole and made the birdie putt for a 3-under 68 and one shot victory. Kennedy recorded his first albatross in tournament play on Saturday and holed out for eagle on the second hole in the final round. The runner-up, an 18-year-old amateur who shot consecutive 63s on the weekend and birdied his final three holes Sunday, also teed up Pro V1x and a full bag of Titleist. The Rosebud event was the first in a series of events that will see male and female professionals and elite amateurs play against each other and compete for the one trophy with the female players competing on a reduced length course. What’s in Brad Kennedy Winning Titleist Bag?

I use different balls, but was playin Titleist Pro V1 today (6/6/20) in my club's Saturday game. I play the senior tees, and on the 8th hole one of my fellow players hit a shot that looked great. We could not see the bottom half of the flag or the hole. My shot looked even better. When we got to the green, there was only one ball in view. One of us had made it! I was fortunate that it was mine. The shot was a pitching wedge from 105 yards, using a Titleist Pro V1. It is my second hole-in-one.

It was a cold day in Arizona, so cold that most golfers stayed in. We pretty much had the course to our selves. I went out with my good friend Jason, and my brother in law Alan. Not playing my best golf, I was still on pace for my handicap. I had already chipped in on the ninth hole of the Sonoran course at oakwood. I thought that would be my shot of the day. Boy was I wrong! I had hit some great shots, and was dancing around the flag all day. We got to the 7th hole on the palms course. The yardage maker said 156 yards, and I pace out nine steps to the tee markers. The flag was in the center, nestled behind the right side green bunker. Jason shot first, pulling his shot left of the green. Then Alan shot, it was right at the flag, just a 10 feet short. Then I shot, i went with a 6 iron, usually I'd go with a 7. I just told my self, "just make good contact." That I did, I soon as the ball came off the club Alan shouted, "thats hole in one material there!" From the tee box it landed just short of the hole and appeared to roll in. I didn't want to jinx it so I said, "It probably just rolled of the back of the green. When we arrived I saw one ball on the green. There was no ball behind the green, or in the bunker. I knew my ball had to be in the cup. Sure enough there it was, resting nicely in the bottom of the cup was my Pro V1, with the number 2 facing up at my. I did it! One of the hardest accomplishments in sports and I had pulled it off. Greatest day I probably ever have on a golf course. And a great feeling when your father in law calls and says, "welcome to the club!"

My group known as The Bogey Bunch showed up at LaCantera Resort course to do battle! The day started off with a bogey on a par 5 and then made a 30 footer to save par on hole 2. I stuck my peg in the tee box on number three and put my pro V1 on top of it and made a swing of a lifetime!! As I look up and watch the ball fly to the green I noticed the course Marshal standing by the green gesturing as if the ball went in the hole. The other guys in my foursome said that it went in and I just couldn't believe them as we couldn't see from The tee box the ball go in. We arrived at the green and I ran over to the hole and was shocked to see my ball in it! After 40 years of playing I can finally say I know what it feels like to make a hole in one!!

I’ve been playing golf since 1989. I am a golfaholic and try to play 5+ times a week. I have had 17 hole outs from fairway since I started playing golf. I have had 30 plus near Hole In Ones but until today it has been eluding me The 14th hole was 115 yards with a 10/12 mph helping wind. Hit my Vokey SM 7 - 52* gap wedge. Ball was a 2019 ProV1X. My playing partner said it’s going right at it. I yelled “Go In” when it hit a foot short and hopped forward and disappeared. Awesome feeling.

I have been playing golf for 30+ years and never had a hole in one until yesterday (10/20/2012). I used 9-iron on par 3 hole (135 yards) with my Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. I obviously had others brand name golf balls in my golf bag, but those are not the high spin balls. In fact, Pro V1 balls are the only high spin golf balls I carry in my bag. Lately, I have only been using high spin golf balls (Pro V1) even though they are more expensive than regular non-high spin golf ball nd I got a hole in one. It will really be hard to go back to any other golf balls.... I love the soft feel and the spin action I get with my pitching shots. My golf partners are really noticing the spin action i get with my pitch shots. I tell them it is the combination of my Titleist Vokey square groove wedge and Pro V1 golf ball. The combination creates some remarkable results for me. Mike K.

When the original Titleist Pro V1 debuted in 2000, it incorporated three ground breaking advances: A large resilient core, multi-component construction, and a cast urethane elastomer cover. Flashback to 16 years ago, at the Invensys Classic at Las Vegas (now the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open), 47 players switched to the new multi-component, solid technology Pro V1 the first week it was available, representing the single greatest pluralistic shift in equipment usage ever at a PGA TOUR event. “The launch of Pro V1 was especially significant in that for the very first time the best performing golf ball for tour players was also the best performing golf ball for all golfers,” recalled Mary Lou Bohn, President, Titleist Golf Balls. “You no longer had to choose between distance over short-game control, or durability over soft feel. There were no trade-offs. Pro V1 delivered total performance.” Today, Pro V1 and Pro V1x are the most played and best-selling golf ball models around the world. Two out of every three players across the worldwide professional tours tee up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, and the percentages are even higher at major men’s and women’s global amateur events, the NCAA Championships and competitive boys’ and girls’ junior championships. Pro V1 and Pro V1x have provided continued success to players across the globe thanks to the dedication from the Titleist Golf Ball R&D Team to innovate and make a ball without compromise, year after year. If you follow Titleist on social media ( Twitter , Facebook and Instagram ), you will see another chapter in the Pro V1's history each day. We will be adding them here, so sit back and recall your memories with the Pro V1 and Pro V1x: twitter.com/.../818895209710747648 2000 twitter.com/.../818895459980746753 2003 Pro V1 twitter.com/.../819169292105158657 2003 Pro V1x twitter.com/.../819631736258723842 2005 Pro V1 twitter.com/.../819896733895266305 2005 Pro V1x twitter.com/.../820280573247692800 2007 Pro V1 twitter.com/.../820774319831715841 2009 Pro V1 twitter.com/.../821342865125212160 2009 Pro V1x twitter.com/.../821761594312900608 2011 Pro V1 twitter.com/.../822151642669645824 2011 Pro V1x twitter.com/.../822440309300686849 2013 Pro V1 twitter.com/.../822806974974656516 2013 Pro V1x twitter.com/.../823341483021320193 2015 Pro V1 twitter.com/.../823610020596068352 2015 Pro V1x twitter.com/.../823878041285763072 2017 Pro V1 and Pro V1x twitter.com/.../824358738542870528

In order to play your best you have to choose the right golf ball. Fortunately, when it comes to performance, that choice is simple - V or X. The new Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls are the total package, providing extraordinary distance with low long game spin, more consistent flight, and outstanding Drop-and-Stop™ performance for all golfers. So how do you decide between Pro V1 and Pro V1x ? The choice really comes down to three factors - Flight, Feel and Spin. Before you fill your ball pocket this season, we'd like to provide a quick guide on the performance differences between the new 2017 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls. Let's take a closer look at V and X side by side. • • • FLIGHT New Pro V1 has a lower, more penetrating flight compared to Pro V1x. Pro V1 has a shallower angle of descent than Pro V1x, resulting in greater roll. In addition to launching higher, new Pro V1x achieves peak height farther downrange. This results in greater carry distance and a steeper angle of descent than Pro V1. • • • FEEL Feel is a golf ball characteristic that is golfer dependent, but the new Pro V1 is designed to have a softer feel than the new Pro V1x. It is important to note that the feel difference between Pro V1 and Pro V1x does not impact either golf ball's performance, but feel is an important preference for many players. • • • SPIN Both Pro V1 and Pro V1x produce low spin in the long game and deliver Drop-and-Stop™ performance on approach shots into the green. While the long game spin of the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x is very similar, there is a difference in spin between the models on iron approach shots and short game shots, where Pro V1 spins less compared to Pro V1x. While Pro V1 spins less than Pro V1x on approach shots and short game shots, both models provide golfers with the requisite spin to deliver the stopping power golfers need on these critical shots. • • • A NOTE ABOUT DISTANCE When deciding between Pro V1 and Pro V1x, distance is a non-factor, as both models deliver extraordinary distance. In the past few generations of Pro V1 and Pro V1x, many golfers perceived Pro V1x to be the longer model, but that is not the case with the 2017 Pro V1 and Pro V1x. The new Pro V1 is powered by a Next Generation 2.0 ZG Process Core that now delivers longer distance on all shots through faster ball speed and lower long game spin. It is the longest Pro V1 we've ever made, and the new Pro V1 is now every bit as long as the new Pro V1x, which continues to set the distance standard against which all other golf balls are measured. Since new Pro V1 and Pro V1x both offer extraordinary distance, the decision really boils down evaluating flight, feel, and spin. • • • Whether you choose Pro V1 or Pro V1x, you can feel confident that you're making the right choice for your game. No other golf ball can match the performance you'll experience with Pro V1 and Pro V1x. On every shot you play. #TeamTitleist

It happened on January 15, 2020 at the 3rd hole, East Course, Royal Vista Golf Club in Walnut, California. It was 173 yards away from an elevated tee box. I took out my 3 wood and hit my ball, a Pro V1 and saw It going left of the green. I really thought I hit a bad shot. The ball landed on the left fringe but bounced right into the green rolling ever so slowly towards the pin until it disappeared in the hole! The five of us in our group and the four in the flight in front of us, who were on the green watching it up close, we all jumped and screamed...HOLE IN ONE!

Hello, my name is Brad Ireland. In September 2009 I was 52 and recently retired. Deciding I would play more golf I joined the men's league in 2008. I started playing golf with the greenskeeper at Eagle Lake G.C. in South River, Ontario. John and I played every Wednesday. Near the end of the season in 2009, John had found a couple of Titleist Pro V1's which he gave to me. I have always played lower priced balls, never trying tour quality balls. I was in for the shock of my life! I've been playing with a 16 handicap all season. On the day of our club championship titled " The Bucko Macdonald ", I played the Pro V1x and the Pro V1. The Pro V1x lasted the first 8 holes. I was 2 under par when I sliced into the trees and lost it. I took out the Pro V1 and reloaded. I managed a bogey. After 9 holes I was amazed I was 1 under par! The Pro V's did exactly as advertised " Stop and drop on every green " ! Chips were amazing, the ball sought out the pin every shot. The next 9 holes I shot 1 over par, ending up with an even par score 72. I now believe a golf ball can make that much of a difference! I won the club championship and will be playing Titleist Pro V1's from now on!! Sincerely, Brad Ireland P.S. Hoping to repeat this season with the " Stop and Drop " accuracy from the Pro V1 !! A special thanks to my buddy John for introducing me to Pro V1 and Titleist for creating them!

I am a 14 handicap and recently started playing in more competitive tournaments at my local club (Cobblestone Golf Course). I also recently decided to make a change to the Titleist Pro V1 ball. My second round after making the switch I hit my first hole in one on hole 16 from 127 yards out with a pitching wedge while playing in a skins game for the first time! It was a great day! Its safe to say I will be playing with this ball from now on.

We received this letter in the mail (yes, the mail) so we thought we'd post it here - such a great testimonial: Dear Titleist: As the Grandfather of a 13 year old Junior golfer, I felt the need to share with Titleist a wonderful happening that occurred this past weekend when my Grandson, Ryan, my son, Greg and I were playing a round of golf at the Hunt Valley Golf Club in Phoenix, MD where we have our family membership. For the past two years, Ryan has made it clear that his golf ball of choice is the Titleist Pro V1 and that he will not play with any other. His gift request for birthdays and other holidays is always Pro V1 golf balls. This past Saturday, we were playing the Par 5 seventh hold and I (a.k.a. Poppy) hit my drive in the right rough. Ryan came over to help me look for my ball. While searching, I found another ball - a Pro V1, I wanted to give it to Ryan, but he said "Poppy, you need to lay with it because it's the best!". So I replaced my ball in the rough with the found Pro V1 and played my second shot. It was one of my best and Ryan was jumping for joy saying "Great Shot! Great Shot! See Poppy - I told you it's the Pro V1!!! It's the Pro V1!!!" My next shot on to the green was equally good and Ryan's enthusiasm was just as passionate. He and I made pars which he does many more times than I. He has definitely made me a Pro V1 believer and I will request a dozen for Father's Day next month. This summer, Ryan will play on the Middle Atlantic PGA Junior Tour as well as the Junior Tour of Maryland and will also give golf lessons to younger boys and girls at a golf camp in Rebobath Beach, Delaware for the second time. Ryan's teacher and coach is the Head Professional at Hunt Valley Golf Club, Mr. John Albert. Ryan aspires to be a professional golfer and works hard at the game in the hopes of achieving the goals he has set for himself and his future in golf. In watching the Titleist marketing presentations on television, I have noticed that junior golfers are not showcased in television or print media. Understandably, the focus seems to be with the professionals and more recently some adult amateurs. In sharing our family golf story, I hope I have given you some thought to involving junior golfers in your future marketing endeavors since they are the future in the game of golf. Sincerely, Wally R. Bunch

Playing in our Wednesday morning senior men's golf league on June 17, 2020 I was able to hole my second hole in one on the 6th hole at Prairie Bluff using a 9 iron at a distance of 122 yards with my new Titleist ProV1 my favorite ball. It was a perfect day with a SE breeze and lots of sunshine. As with my first hole in one we could not see it actually go in the hole because of the berm in front of the green and the pin forward. After watching the ball take its first bounce we all knew it was a good shot so I took a quick picture of the green from the tee. On approaching the green we could see that the ball was holes sitting up on the foam inserted in the hole as dictated by the Corona Virus rules. What a thrill looking at my ProV1 #2 in the hole looking back me.

I was playing in a tournament with my wife, Tami and son Devin. It was a two man, one woman scramble at Prescott Country Club in Prescott, Arkansas. We came to the number 12 par 3. I asked Devin what was the yardage. He said 138 yards. I said to myself, “It’s hot and I’m getting a little tired” so I chose a 7 iron over my normal 8. We could not see the hole from the tee box. I hit the ball and one of the other players said "that sure sounded good." I said "yeah it should be close." As my wife and I drove closer to the green there was no ball. Someone said "it must be in the hole!" At that time my heart started to increase in pace. Mike Yates, a guy from the other team confirmed it! It was in the hole! Tami had us all gather around the hole and took a picture as I reached down to retrieve my ball. It was a brand new Titleist Pro V1 that had only been hit that one time. It was a gift for my 60th birthday from our dear friends Mark and Jeanne who just happened to be riding around with us watching us play. This was my first hole-in-one!

I was playing golf on 4/30 at Blue Ash Ohio with my brother in law and 2 co workers. round was pretty nondescript until the back nine. Par on 10(par 5) and then faced with a 178 yd shot with water all along the left hand side of the green. I had honors and stood to the tee buoyed with optimism. Took out my trusty trouble 4 and a good quality Pro V1 and with one mighty stroke fortune smiled upon me and looked like a good shot toward the pin. All were impressed and when we arrived to the green I thought I might have rolled off the back but was pleasantly surprised by one of my co workers that Pro V1 was nestled in the bottom of the cup. Thanks again for making a great product and help making our day phenomenal. P. S. the course attendant had chastised us on the 2nd tee we should move up to enjoy our round more, obviously we couldn't have enjoyed it more.

By introducing a reformulated, softer urethane cover for the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x , Titleist R&D solved for a two-part challenge. First, the softer cover material generates more spin, resulting in greater greenside control on finesse shots and short approaches to the green. Second, the new cover formulation satisfied the desire requested by golfers across the board for softer, more responsive feel. Feel is very subjective and can be experienced differently from player to player. However, our testing has shown that for the majority of players, feel is based mainly on sound. More specifically, players are most conscious of the sound that the golf ball produces on short finesse shots and in the putting game. It's very difficult to quantify the impact of feel on performance, but it's very easy to see the important role it plays in the minds of most golfers. A golf ball that sounds and feels “right” can breed confidence. It allows players to more precisely calibrate the force of their shots – what we commonly call a player’s “sense of touch”. For the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x, feel was fine-tuned during extensive prototype testing for each model . Fordie Pitts, Tour Consultant for Golf Ball Performance explained that for tour players, the number one priority is always performance. But if you can check all the boxes on performance and deliver more satisfying feel, then you give players a competitive edge in the form of more highly attuned touch and a heightened sense of confidence. "On tour, in our final phases of product validation, we ask players to pay very close attention to feel, because it can be a deal-breaker. If a golf ball feels harsh or sounds “off” somehow, players will tell you. And they simply won’t be able to trust that ball – no matter how well it performs otherwise. When the feel is right, players can really dial in the pace of their putts and the weight of those shots around the green. It ties into the artistry of playing the game and it’s a very important part of the whole package when we develop new products." In order to create consistent feel that players can rely on, the cover material must be replicated identically from one ball to the next. If one golf ball in a dozen feels firm and the next ball feels soft, you have no hope of dialing in your sense of touch. Golf Ball R&D worked closely with teams in Titleist Ball Plant 3 to ensure that every detail in cover casting operations, from tooling to curing times, were appropriately adjusted to meet strict tolerances for the new urethane formulation of new Pro V1 and Pro V1x. “It’s not simply a matter of changing the urethane formula,” said Mike Madson, Director of Aerodynamics & Research Engineering . “It’s a complex process involving a chemical reaction that has to be performed under very strict conditions. And when you create a new formulation, the viscosity of the material, the gel time, the temperatures required – everything changes. Fortunately, we designed the process and we machine all the tooling ourselves. That level of control allows us to very finely tailor our urethane formulations and consistently achieve the exact hardness we want. That gives us the exact spin and feel that we're looking for on every new Pro V1 and Pro V1x we make.” • • • New Pro V1 offers the greatest combination of speed, spin and feel in the game and is the best fit for the majority of golfers. Pro V1 features a mid-high, penetrating trajectory, low long game spin and high short game spin and very soft feel. New Pro V1x has a fast, high flight and delivers spin when and where a golfer wants it. Pro V1x is designed for players who want a higher trajectory and increased spin relative to Pro V1, with a slightly firmer feel.

To make the best performing and highest quality golf balls in the game even better, we changed every aspect of the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x – from core to cover. The gains you'll experience in Distance , Spin and Feel are a direct result of the feedback we received from golfers just like you. No detail was left to chance, from the new dimple patterns that optimize flight for each model, to the new sidestamps that put the final premium accent on the most important piece of equipment you'll rely on this season. The sidestamp is a printed marking on the equator of the golf ball that identifies the specific model and differentiates it from all other balls. A unique sifaxpnde stamp is a pre-requisite for any ball to be listed on the USGA's Conforming List of Golf Balls and there is a wide variety of characters, spaces, shapes and symbols that golf ball manufacturers can use when they submit new sidestamps for approval. The original 2001 Pro V1 golf ball featured a simple, block print sidestamp. Before Pro V1, not a great deal of detail went into the block letters of the sidestamp. But in the early 2000's, we began to see an interesting trend. Many players were orienting their golf balls and using the sidestamp as an alignment aid. Some players used the sidestamp on the tee, aligning their body lines parallel to the sidestamp and using it to start their drives on target. Even more players were using the sidestamp on the greens, as a straight-line reference to more precisely aim their putts. Other players were even augmenting the sidestamp. Titleist Brand Ambassador Brad Faxon is credited as being one of the first players on tour to use a permanent marker to draw a line through the sidestamp, a practice that a majority of players have adopted today. (Check out how Brad marks and uses his Sharpie line in the following video:) www.youtube.com/watch As far back as 2002, Pro V1 sidestamps incorporated arrows to accentuate the use of the sidestamp as an alignment aid, but in 2007, based on feedback from players on tour, we went a step further. Both the 2007 Pro V1 and Pro V1x featured a new alignment system called A.I.M. (Alignment Integrated Marking) that gave players a bold straight line in addition to arrow heads. The combination provided a strong visual that made it easy for players to orient the ball and improve their aim and alignment. Both the 2007 Pro V1 and Pro V1x (pictured) featured Titleist's A.I.M. sidestamp advancement. Since then, we've invested even more time and resources to sidestamp development. In 2018 we offered enhanced alignment logo options for the first time on Titleist.com and they quickly became the most popular logos in our custom library. For the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x , we created dozens of potential new sidestamp concepts and in April of 2020, we conducted a broad player research study that polled nearly 15,000 golfers. And as Senior Golf Ball Product Manager, Frederick Waddell explained, a wide variety of players were consulted. "Our 2020 study included over 400 PGA, Korn Ferry, LPGA and Champions tour players, more than 600 PGA club professionals and nearly 13,000 members of Team Titleist. It was important for us to learn how all golfers view and use the sidestamp. We knew that it was becoming a more significant feature of the golf ball, but only when the survey results came in did we truly understand the full scale. Today, over 80% of golfers are using their sidestamp at some point during the round to help with their aim and alignment." The results of the study revealed a wide variety of player preferences, but among the choices presented for consideration, one design – a simple outlined bar and arrow point combination/variation – was the clear favorite. In fact, "simplicity" was a common theme expressed by many players in the comment sections of the survey. Particularly among tour players, it was important that we preserve the clean and elegant aesthetics of the Pro V1 that golfers have come to appreciate. "I prefer to have a clean looking ball. Most guys use their own markings anyway. Best to leave a clean slate for everyone to do as wanted." – Anirban Lahiri, PGA "Simple is the best!" – Jenny Shin, LPGA "The cleaner the better." – Willie Wood, PGA Tour Champions slideshow.titleist.com/.../1234.xml On the flip side, there was also a large contingent of players who felt that a simple sidestamp enhanced with additional alignment features could be useful: "I liked the side stamp with lines on top and bottom as well." – Jimmy Walker, PGA "There is nothing worse than strolling up to your ball on your first hole and realize you're about to smear your fresh sharpie line you put on 4 mins ago.... love the concept of the lines already there." – Piri Borja, Korn Ferry "Have always loved the ball... would make it easier with those lines already there since I wont have to try and make a straight line on the ball." – Rafael Campos, PGA "Like the addition of the track lines." – Ben Martin, PGA slideshow.titleist.com/.../1233.xml So how did we satisfy the wishes of both groups of golfers? We decided to make them both – a simple, clean sidestamp to please the traditionalists and a version with enhanced alignment for the players who favor a stronger visual reference. "Operationally, we now have the ability to accommodate much more customization," said Frederick Waddell. "Just as our goal is to provide golfers with a variety of performance options (by giving flight, feel and spin options in Pro V1 , Pro V1x , AVX and Pro V1x Left Dash ), we also want to provide golfers with preference options, whether it's the color of the golf ball, custom play numbers, logo artwork and custom imprinting and now, most recently - custom alignment options. It's just another way we can make the golf ball truly yours and help you play your best golf possible." • • • In addition to standard dozens, we also offer enhanced alignment sidestamps as a stock option for the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x .

When we asked golfers how we could make the Pro V1 and Pro V1x better, the common response was, "Don't change a thing. I love it just the way it is." But as we learned from Mike Sullivan, Senior Vice President of Golf Ball R&D , our constant testing and on-going conversations with golfers revealed that there's always room for improvement: "When you dig a little deeper, you start hearing, 'Well, if you could make it maybe a little bit longer. If you could give me a little more spin around the greens. If you can give me a little better feel without compromising any of the qualities that I like now about the ball.' So that becomes the challenge – to outdo ourselves. Finding ways to make the best products in the game even better is what drives us in Golf Ball R&D. We're a lot like golfers in that respect. We always want to improve." To make the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x even longer (without sacrificing performance in every other phase of the game), Titleist R&D came up with an ingenious solution that began with the thin intermediate layer that encases the golf ball core. "The new Pro V1 and Pro V1x both utilize a new high flex modulus ionomer material in the casing layer," said Brian Comeau, Director of Materials Research . "We first experimented with high flex casings in AVX development. We took that a further step and saw great success when we incorporated HFM into the casing design for the Pro V1x Left Dash ball. This material is more lively, more resilient than previous Pro V1 formulations and generates faster ball speed. To counterbalance this new, stiffer casing layer, we formulated a completely new, softer core. That allowed us to keep the compression neutral, but the softer core gave us the added benefit of lowering the spin rate off the tee and with long irons. The net result is more speed with less spin – a perfect combination for longer distance where you need it." The new Pro V1 and Pro V1x also get an added distance boost through more efficient aerodynamics. "The new Pro V1 has a brand new, spherically tiled, tetrahedral 388 dimple pattern," said Michael Madson, R&D’s Director of Aerodynamics & Research Engineering . “The Pro V1x utilizes a new, spherically tiled, tetrahedral 348 dimple design. Both patterns are the first brand new dimple counts that we've used on a Pro V1 since 2011." Why two different dimple patterns? “Different dimple counts are necessary because Pro V1 and Pro V1x are designed to give golfers different trajectory options,” Madson explained. “We wanted to maintain that relationship where Pro V1x flies perceptibly higher than Pro V1 and different aerodynamics are needed to optimize flight for those two distinct launch windows. Typically, what we see is that as you go up in dimple count that point of optimal trajectory flies a little bit lower in the air, and as you reduce the dimple count that point of optimal trajectory flies a little bit higher in the air. So, through the development of these two patterns, what we found is that the 388 optimal trajectory is lower than the 348 optimal trajectory. By applying the 388 pattern to Pro V1 and the 348 pattern to Pro V1x, we were able to maximize distance for both constructions.” Optimizing those two new patterns was no small feat. For Pro V1's new aerodynamics package, Madson and his team made and tested over 60 different versions of the 388 design before landing on the right combination of dimple depths and edge angles that would provide the added distance and stability in flight that they knew was possible. They made and tested 35 different iterations of the 348 pattern before achieving the ideal flight for Pro V1x. "In both patterns, we knew we had something great," Madson said, "but we had to make it perfect before we could actually put it on a Pro V1 or Pro V1x. Really it's about maximizing distance through trajectory. As we make the dimple deeper, the ball flies lower in the air. As we make the dimple shallower, the ball flies higher. So, somewhere in between those two extremes is a point of maximum distance, which is the optimized trajectory. The bottom line is, for golfers that play either of these products, these optimized dimple patterns will provide more distance and better consistency. Your shot dispersion will be tighter, and they'll perform better in the wind, too." • • • New Pro V1 offers the greatest combination of speed, spin and feel in the game and is the best fit for the majority of golfers.

Low spin is a big advantage in the long game, which the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x each achieve through their integration of a lower compression core surrounded by a thin, high flex modulus casing layer . But as Fordie Pitts, Tour Consultant for Golf Ball Performance told us, distance is only one facet of the game. “We could design a product that would just go far when struck with a driver, but that’s not the complete game of golf. That wouldn’t help any player shoot lower scores. We’ve got to look at all aspects of it. Distance is just one aspect, and spin and control are every bit as important. I would say in the past two years, more so than any other time in the last fifteen years that I've been working with players on tour, that players are asking for more spin. Greens are getting so firm and demanding that there's a much a greater premium put on control. To hold the greens – and to leave the ball in the proper shelves and quadrants on those greens – you really need spin to get up and down, to score and ultimately, to compete.” Titleist's multi-layer technology was a key factor in allowing R&D to keep spin down on shots where you need distance while amplifying spin on shorter shots, where precision and control is the priority. To achieve greater greenside spin, Titleist R&D targeted the cover and developed the softest cast thermoset urethane material ever used on a Pro V1 or Pro V1x. "On shots with more lofted clubs like wedges, the cover plays a much larger role than the core and casing layer," said Brian Comeau, Director of Materials Research . "By using a softer urethane formulation, the cover flexes on these shots and gives more at impact. More of the cover interacts with the grooves of the club, creating more friction. The more friction you have, the more spin you can generate.” How can more greenside spin help your game? Derek Ladd, Senior Project Manager Research & Intellectual Property , explained that more greenside spin can be even more beneficial to amateurs than tour players: "Tour players know how to clip the ball precisely with their wedges and spin it more, spin it less – but most amateur golfers don't generate a lot of spin in and around the greens. With more spin, you can be more aggressive with your irons and wedges. You're going to be able to throw the ball a little bit closer to the pin because you know it's going to grab and stop quickly. When you're short-sided or facing a poor lie, the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x will still check and you're going to be able to keep it on the putting surface. Spin is a big key on those scoring shots." • • • New Pro V1 offers the greatest combination of speed, spin and feel in the game and is the best fit for the majority of golfers. Pro V1 features a mid-high, penetrating trajectory, low long game spin and high short game spin and very soft feel. New Pro V1x has a fast, high flight and delivers spin when and where a golfer wants it. Pro V1x is designed for players who want a higher trajectory and increased spin relative to Pro V1, with a slightly firmer feel.

Paint spraying onto twirling golf balls. The zap heard during corona discharge. The sight of a golf ball earning the Titleist script. These are just some of the sights and sounds experienced in our golf ball plants, manufacturing the #1 ball in golf. We went behind the curtain of Ball Plant 3 in New Bedford, Mass., to see some of the steps that go into making a Pro V1 golf ball. Let's take a closer look: www.instagram.com/.../ Once the core materials are molded, Pro V1 cores undergo Titleist's corona discharge process. This process ensures that the Urethane Elastomer™ cover adheres properly to the core. www.instagram.com/.../ Our Urethane Elastomer™ formulation and the process to make it is what sets Titleist apart from the rest. Our cover system technology enables us to cast extremely thin covers, control the uniformity, and tailor it to your game. www.instagram.com/.../ Thanks to our paint system developed by Golf Ball R&D, Pro V1 and Pro V1x stay whiter and brighter longer throughout the course of play. The cover and paint system also contributes to an aerodynamically more consistent golf ball. www.instagram.com/.../ The Titleist Operations team has grown to more than 1,100 associates with an average tenure of 20 years and over 20,000 years of collective experience. These associates assure that every golf ball performs consistently for every golfer, every round and on every type of shot. www.instagram.com/.../ Throughout this rigorous process, the Titleist golf ball has earned its script. Our commitment to continuous improvement and performance and quality excellence are core values of the Titleist tradition, which the golfer gets to experience every time he or she tees up the #1 ball in golf.

Beneath a glaring Las Vegas sun, the tour seeding and validation process for new prototype Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls officially began Monday morning at the PGA Tour’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Those rays reflected particularly brightly off the white boxes that Titleist Golf Ball R&D tour reps Fordie Pitts and Jeff Beyers carried around TPC Summerlin, as they spent Halloween more or less passing out treats: prototype Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls. Here are just a few sights and sounds from Monday’s proceedings: At 8 a.m., Titleist tour reps and associates on site this week gathered inside the Titleist Tour Van. “It’s an exciting week, a new prototype Pro V1 and Pro V1x on tour,” said Frederick Waddell, Senior Manager of Golf Ball Product Development, addressing the group. Waddell, along with Pitts and Beyers, spent the next 20 minutes discussing the two new prototypes and answering questions. Toward the end of the discussion, Pitts pointed out the new side stamp, referring to its shape as a “wedge.”Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill, looking over at his boss, Bob Vokey, remarked with a wry smile, “We like that.” Inside the locker room at TPC Summerlin, around 9 a.m., Titleist golf ball loyalist Billy Horschel approached Tour Rep Todd Harris to inquire about the new prototypes. They spent the next few minutes discussing earlier prototypes that Horschel tested at the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral, Horschel wondering how those compared to the new models. “This is like Christmas for PGA Tour golfers,”Horschel said. “Obviously we get a lot of cool things, but when you see a white box, you know there’s something special in here. No one else has it.” Fresh off a victory at the Ryder Cup and a Hall of Fame election, Davis Love III spent at least five minutes chatting with Pitts, asking questions about the two new models. Love is the only participant this week who was also in the field at TPC Summerlin for the 2000 Invensys Classic , when the original Pro V1 prototypes debuted to instant and overwhelming success. He plans to do some on-course testing during his Tuesday practice round. Cameron Smith spent a good half hour testing the new prototype Pro V1x and analyzing his results on Trackman. Pleased with the numbers, he told Pitts and Beyers to put them in his locker for further on-course testing Tuesday. The pace will pick up Tuesday as more players arrive at TPC Summerlin. Stay tuned to Team Titleist for more updates! #1ballingolf

Every two years, at an early-season PGA Tour event, a box of new Titleist golf balls emerges that is, well, markedly different than most. Safeguarded by a member of the Titleist golf ball product management team, the contents of the box are revealed to tour pro after tour pro, with a couple straightforward questions: Which one do you like best? Why? What’s inside? About a half-dozen of the same prototype Pro V1 golf balls , but each of them with a different sidestamp design. As every new Titleist Pro V1 represents years of rigorous R&D and player testing, every Pro V1 sidestamp represents “at least five months of development that’s running in parallel to the overall process,” according to Senior Golf Ball Product Manager Frederick Waddell. “Based on our player research and testing, we know that the overwhelming majority of golfers today are interacting with the sidestamp on their golf ball at some point during the round,” Waddell says. “But that’s not anything new. We’ve been incorporating alignment features into our Pro V1 models and implementing the feedback of tour players and dedicated golfers going back to 2002.” Equipment standards dictate that every new golf ball listed on the USGA/R&A Conforming Golf Ball list feature a new, unique sidestamp that complies with specific design rules. For each new generation of Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, Titleist designers create a collection of new sidestamps with varying features inspired by recent golfer feedback. Many of these are printed on golf balls at our Custom Operations facility for further internal analysis and deliberation. The semi-finalists, so to speak, are sent to Titleist Ball Plant 3 – the center of Titleist golf ball technology – where they are printed on Pro V1 and Pro V1x prototypes within the authentic manufacturing environment. Next stop: The PGA Tour. While a winner typically emerges from the Tour players’ vote, the final decision is validated through further testing with dedicated golfers, both in-person at golf courses and through Team Titleist surveys. “Any change we make to a Titleist golf ball has to be informed by what golfers are telling us and what they want,” Waddell says. “That is the foundation of our process and everything we do.” In addition, in February 2018, new alignment aid sidestamp designs were made available through the My Titleist customizer on Titleist.com. They instantly became the most popular custom logo options selected by golfers, inspiring the new sidestamp designs for the recently-launched Titleist Tour Soft , Velocity and TruFeel golf balls, along with the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x Enhanced Alignment offerings. Now that you have a better understanding of how we choose our sidestamps, we thought you would enjoy seeing all the different Pro V1 and Pro V1x marks throughout the years — one of the primary distinguishing marks of each model: 2000 slideshow.titleist.com/.../1152.xml 2000 Pro V1 : When the original Titleist Pro V1 debuted in 2000, it incorporated three ground breaking advances: A large resilient core, multi-component construction, and a cast urethane elastomer cover.

A new staggered wave parting line design and tour-validated alignment integrated marking sidestamp were also introduced to the ‘07 Pro V1 and Pro V1x.

Phil Young (1910) It was a Sunday afternoon in 1930 and Phil Young, a dedicated amateur golfer who also just so happened to be the owner of a precision molded rubber company (Acushnet Process Company), was playing a match against his friend who was the head of the x-ray department at a local hospital. On the final shot of the final hole, Young lined up his putt, made a solid stroke at it, but as it neared the hole, it started to wobble and it didn’t go in. And as every golfer knows, it’s never the result of operator error. It’s always the equipment’s fault, right?... Right? Well, in all seriousness, convinced that the ball itself was at fault, Young and his opponent went to the hospital, x-rayed the golf ball in question, and found that its core was, in fact, off-center. With his discovery, Phil Young persuaded Fred Bommer, a fellow MIT graduate, rubber specialist and avid golfer, to head up the Acushnet Golf Division. They knew that by implementing a better manufacturing process he would be able to make the best golf ball in the world; one that would be uniform and consistent in quality, ball after ball — a nd that's exactly what they set out to do. Acushnet Processing (1912) It took Young and Bommer several painstaking years to perfect the first Titleist golf ball, but when it was ready in 1935, it could truthfully be introduced to club professionals and golfers as the best ball ever made. Applying a lesson well learned, Young implemented a process check that is still in practice today: every single Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball is x-rayed. We had a conversation with Dick Young, the son of Acushnet Company founder, Phil Young. As Dick recalls for us, had it not been for his father’s frustrating run-in with an irregular golf ball, the story of the #1 ball in golf might never have been written. Listen to the full audio below: api.soundcloud.com/.../276343874 Feel free to share your comments below and let us know if you have any questions about the story of Acushnet.

"Am I good enough to play the Pro V1?" This is a question we hear from time-to-time and while the quick answer is “Yes,” we wanted to dive into this a little more and provide some insight around why the Pro V1 , Pro V1x or AVX are great options for golfers of any skill level. And to get to the heart of this topic, we went to one of our golf ball experts – Mike Rich, the manager of our golf ball fitting program – and asked him a few questions. Who should play the Pro V1, Pro V1 x and AVX? Mike Rich (MR ): It’s important for golfers to know that the Pro V1, Pro V1x, and AVX perform for all golfers, not just highly skilled players. In fact, a less skilled golfer may benefit even more from using a high-performance golf ball. How does playing a high-performance ball help? MR : Mid to high handicap players miss more greens and need to get up and down more frequently to save strokes. The spin and control that Pro V1, Pro V1x, and AVX provide helps these players execute the short game shots necessary to play their best. What about performance on those not so perfect shots? MR : This is another area where these balls can really help. Missed shots, particularly on shots into greens, require more forgiveness. Better stopping power from higher spin on approach shots and short game shots can often mean the difference between staying on the green or rolling off it and that can be the difference between saving par or scrambling for a bogey. What are the benefits of playing one of these golf balls? MR : Pro V1, Pro V1x, and AVX provide golfers with unmatched performance in all facets of the game — extraordinary distance in the long game, exceptional spin and control in the short game, optimized flight, soft feel, and long lasting durability. With unique flight, spin, and feel characteristics, Pro V1, Pro V1x, and AVX are each designed to give golfers the best opportunity to shoot lower scores. You don’t have to compromise on performance in one area of the game for another and that’s what makes these golf balls so great. How can we find the right ball for our games? MR : Of course, I always recommend getting fit to make sure you have the best ball for your individual game. You can schedule a fitting with our golf ball fitting team or use Titleist’s online Golf Ball Selection Tool to start the fitting process. ... Explore Pro V1 , Pro V1x and AVX .

As a golfer, it's important to play the best golf ball for your game. At Titleist, we believe that performance is the most critical consideration in choosing a ball - the combination of distance, flight and short game control that helps you to shoot your lowest scores possible. But we also understand that player preferences (considerations like price, feel, and color) factor largely in this decision. So in response to the growing demand from members of Team Titleist and golfers around the world, we're excited to announce that for the first time ever, Pro V1 and Pro V1x , the best performing, highest quality golf balls in the game, are now available in a new color option – High Optic Yellow . Following a successful seeding and validation period on the PGA Tour, the new 2019 Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow golf balls will be available in golf shops this week – beginning Friday, March 15 . • • • PRO V1 YELLOW ON TOUR Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow first appeared on the PGA Tour in late January at the Waste Management Open, where Bubba Watson put a 2019 Pro V1x Yellow immediately in play. “I’m loving the new Pro V1x Yellow. When the R&D guys sent me the first batch of them for testing, I couldn’t wait to get them in play,” said Watson, who currently leads the PGA Tour’s average driving distance category at 318.5 yards. “I played some really good golf with the [prior generation] Pro V1x, but it’s clear the 2019 ball is even better. It’s faster, I can work the ball exactly how I want, and the short game performance is as good as ever. The ball feels great, plus there’s just something about that bright yellow finish where I feel like I can see it better. For me it was a no-brainer.” This past Sunday, Kirk Triplett , playing Pro V1x Yellow, eagled the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the PGA Tour Champions’ Hoag Classic, marking the first victory for a Pro V1 or Pro V1x Yellow golf ball on the worldwide professional tours. Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow models have also been played on the PGA Tour by Kyle Jones (Pro V1x) and Rory Sabbatini (Pro V1x), on the Web.Com Tour by Scott Gutschewski (Pro V1) and Zac Blair (Pro V1x), and on PGA Tour Champions by Mark Calcavecchia (Pro V1x) and Ken Tanigawa (Pro V1). • • • NEW LOOK, SAME UNMATCHED PERFORMANCE Faster from core to cover, new Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow have been precisely engineered to deliver the same performance improvements as their traditional white 2019 counterparts – delivering more ball speed and lower long game spin for more distance, while retaining the consistent flight, Drop-and-Stop short game control, soft feel and long-lasting durability that golfers depend on. Pro V1 provides optimal flight and spin for most golfers, flying lower than Pro V1x with a penetrating trajectory, with very soft feel. Pro V1x flies higher, spins more on iron shots and has a slightly firmer feel. Click here for full details . • • • WHAT TEAM TITLEIST MEMBERS ARE SAYING "I have been asking about a yellow Pro V1 for years now. And it's finally here! I cannot wait to get my hands on a yellow Pro V1x and tee it up! I've been using the yellow offerings by Titleist for a while now (NXT Tour S, DT Solo) and have discovered that they're so much easier to see than the white golf balls. Thanks so much Titleist!" - NoleIn SC, Team Titleist Member I'm interested in trying them during some very early morning rounds when the sun is still rising. Also, during those evening rounds when the sun is setting and I'm fighting the sunlight. - David ARK, Team Titleist Member "I have been playing yellow golf balls for years. As I’ve gotten older my vision has changed and the yellow ball is easier to focus on and easier to find, especially in the fall when Bermuda grass is dormant and brown. I can’t wait to play the best ball on the market in yellow." - WHigginbotham, Team Titleist Member "Can't wait to get my eyes on a box of these new optic yellow Pro V's. Increased focus and concentration should translate to more consistency in the Impact Zone! This then should result in improved performance and lower scores. Thank you, Titleist!" - Mark S, Team Titleist Member • • • New 2019 Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow golf balls arrive in golf shops beginning Friday, March 15.

It was another beautiful day here in Virginia. It was a little breezy that day. I came to sixth hole at Hunting Hawk Golf Club in Glen Allen, VA. I was playing really well that day. I brought out 9 iron on this par 3, about 120 yards and I hit my Titleist Pro v1 ball and it hit the pole and disappeared into the hole. Wow!!! Thank you for your wonderful balls. No wonder it is just well known and so popular around the world.

Playing at Blackstone Country Club with one of my playing partners. #6 has sand to the right and left, and pin was in the middle/back. I hit a solid 7 iron with a flight just right of the pin. There is a area of rough between the traps and green and as we got the green we could not see a ball on the green. I knew I hit it well and was shocked it was not on the green. My buddy commented it must have been held up in the thick rough. We covered the rough..no ball. He walked to the back of the green thinking I flew it...i casually walked over to the cup, all the while waiting for him to sasy "really, now you think it went in' (he is sarcastic as they come)..as I walked over and looked in the cup....THERE IT WAS!!! My Pro V1 with my blue dot marking sitting at the bottom!! WOW...what a rush...Scott came running over and congratulated me. Best day ever, and I tied my best round overall as well.
