Meet the New Titleist ProV1 and ProV1x

Titleist consistently produces the #1 ball used by Tour pros. Always with the goal of improvement, Titleist develops the latest version of the infamous ProV1 and ProV1x golf ball. To achieve this goal, Titleist goes through an extensive testing phase. Over 80,000 golfers of all skill levels helped during the 2-year development process. The company also changed its manufacturing process, bringing everything in-house. In doing so, Titleist maintains production consistency from ball to ball. Consumers have confidence in knowing every ball they purchase will perform the same.

What has all of this work resulted in? Let’s take a look at what makes each ProV1 unique and what the reception is.

ProV1

ProV1

The Titleist ProV1 is a 3-piece ball. It has a next generation 2.0 ZG Process Core. This core gives you low long game spin and faster ball speeds. The 352 tetrahedral dimple design in the urethane elastomer cover delivers a penetrating and consistent ball flight. The cover also has a soft feel. Iron shots have less spin compared to the ProV1x. For your short game, the ProV1’s soft feeling cover produces high spin to help stick it close.

ProV1x

The Titleist ProV1x is a 4-piece ball that has a ZG process dual core. It has a higher ball flight than the ProV1 with equally low long game spin. These traits result from the 328 tetrahedral dimples in the urethane elastomer cover. The feel of the ProV1x isn’t as soft as the ProV1 but it is still soft. The extra layer in the ProV1x gives more iron spin and slightly higher stopping power around the green.

Both golf balls improve flight consistency in various conditions over previous generations.

Reviews

With over 100 worldwide Tour players switching to the new golf ball, the popularity is easy to see. Here’s what a couple guys you might have heard of had to say about each:

“I think the remarkable thing with the new Pro V1 is how far it goes now. I’m hitting it longer than I ever have but I also have that soft feel like when I grew up playing a balata golf ball – it’s incredibly soft.” – Adam Scott

“I put new Pro V1x in play in Australia and in the first week we won. What I noticed immediately was the improved flight. It held its line in the crosswinds better.” – Jordan Speith

Now it’s time to try them for yourself! See what the ProV1 and ProV1x can do for your game.
