PostSubject: THE BEST KEEP GETTING BETTER. TITLEIST INTRODUCES NEW PRO V1 AND PRO V1x GOLF BALLS.   Mon Jan 31, 2011 2:23 pm

Continuous Improvement to the World’s Most Trusted and Best Selling Golf Balls




Titleist, the #1 ball in golf, announces the launch of the most technologically advanced Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls yet. Titleist, once again, raises the standard for quality and performance by making the most trusted and best selling golf balls even better. Product improvements to its flagship models are engineered to satisfy the demanding requirements of the world’s best professional tour players, club professionals, competitive amateurs and aspiring golfers. Ten years after the marketplace introduction of the original Pro V1, “the ball that turned golf upside down” (USA Today, March 2001), the best keep getting better.

“Golf is a game of continuous improvement and serious golfers want to get better,” said Mary Lou Bohn, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing and Communications. “At Titleist, we care about golfers’ games and will only introduce a new golf ball if it truly performs better and helps them shoot lower scores. We have tested and validated the performance of the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x with players throughout the pyramid of influence with resoundingly positive performance feedback and success. New Pro V1 and Pro V1x are the best performing golf balls we’ve ever made, and the best performing golf balls in the game.”

Titleist Pro V1 loyalists will experience increased spin control and a more consistent ball flight with the new model, while retaining the exceptional distance and durability they count on for their game. The performance improvements of the New Titleist Pro V1x are longer distance and a more consistent ball flight, along with its renowned Drop-and-Stop greenside control. Titleist manufactures every Pro V1 and Pro V1x in its own facilities to the strictest standards using precision process technologies. Golfers can trust that Pro V1 and Pro V1x deliver unmatched consistency and quality.

“New Pro V1 and Pro V1x are designed to help players of all skill levels shoot lower scores,” said Bohn. “Both models deliver exceptional distance and short game spin control, yet provide distinct performance differences in driver and iron spin, distance, feel and durability. We encourage every golfer to experience Titleist golf ball fitting which culminates in an on-course performance evaluation to assess which new Pro V1 model is best for their game.”

NEW PRO V1
Increased Spin Control. More Consistent Flight with Exceptional Distance

New Pro V1 provides the exceptional distance and durability that golfers have counted on, and now delivers increased spin control and a more consistent flight. This advanced performance results from a new innovative ZG process core technology, responsive ionomeric casing layer, urethane elastomer cover and spherically tiled 352 tetrahedral dimple design. This new 352 dimple pattern with five different dimple sizes (previous generation had 392 dimples) has more surface coverage and 3 axes of symmetry. These new aerodynamics deliver a penetrating ball flight that holds its line in the wind.

“By implementing design improvements in the core, casing layer and aerodynamics, we have produced the highest performing and most consistent performing Pro V1 we’ve ever made,” said Bill Morgan, Senior Vice President, Golf Ball Research and Design, Acushnet Company. “Players’ feedback has focused on new Pro V1’s tight penetrating flight, particularly in holding its line in the wind, as well as the increased spin control and consistent reaction into the green.”

NEW PRO V1x
Longer Distance. More Consistent Flight with Exceptional Spin Control.


Delivering very low spin off the driver and long irons, New Pro V1x provides longer distance and a more consistent flight along with its renowned Drop-and-Stop greenside control. A four-piece multi-component design, Pro V1x features a large, high velocity dual core with a soft center, responsive ionomeric casing layer, urethane elastomer cover and a new spherically tiled 328 tetrahedral dimple design (previous generation had 332 dimples). This high coverage dimple pattern with seven different dimple sizes has three axes of symmetry and produces a higher trajectory for Pro V1x's longer distance and a consistent flight that cuts through windy conditions. The Pro V1x retains its urethane elastomer cover for soft feel and durability.

“The new Pro V1x has a new 328 tetrahedral dimple design which is exceptionally efficient aerodynamically,” said Morgan. “The combination of the Pro V1x’s higher trajectory and very low spin results in longer distance. While any distance gains are certainly player dependent, most Pro V1x players have noticed that it peaks further downrange and carries farther than their prior generation Pro V1x. They have also experienced excellent performance in windy conditions.”

“Professionals and amateurs alike, all of whom seek to advance their games, have provided performance feedback and validated each generation of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x, to ensure that the world’s best golf balls keep getting better,” said Bohn. “The essence of players’ trust in Titleist is that they have to know that their golf ball will do exactly what they want it to do if they hit their shot properly. Pro V1 and Pro V1x have earned this trust, year after year, and that it is why more of the world’s best players, club professionals, accomplished amateurs and golfers around the world have made Pro V1 their #1 choice.”

PLAYER VALIDATION

Prior to any Titleist high performance golf ball introduction, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x are tested and validated across the worldwide professional tours, with club professionals and better playing amateurs. The New Pro V1 and New Pro V1x golf balls found instant acceptance and success when seeding began at the McGladrey Classic in October, when 22 players trusted the new models. Bo Van Pelt (Pro V1/T6), Webb Simpson (Pro V1x/T12) and Steve Marino (Pro V1x/T15), all finished in the Top 15.

Two weeks later, Padraig Harrington earned the first-ever victory with the new Pro V1x on the worldwide tours when he captured the Iskandor Johor Open in Malaysia – the first time he teed up the golf ball in competition. Since then, Steven Bowditch, who already secured his 2011 PGA Tour Card after finishing 17th on the Nationwide Tour money list, won the Cellarbrations NSW PGA Championship on the Australian Tour. Most recently, Michio Matsumura captured the Casio World Open playing the New Pro V1x and Hiroyuki Fujita won the JT Open playing the New Pro V1 on the Japan Golf Tour. Maria Hjorth became the first player on the LPGA Tour to win with the New Pro V1 when she captured the season-ending LPGA Tour Championship.

In addition to the above-mentioned champions, other notable players such as Hunter Mahan, Henrik Stenson, Bubba Watson and over 100 others across all of the worldwide professional tours already have made the late-season conversion to the new golf balls with success.

WHAT PLAYERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE NEW PRO V1

“Man, I thought we were going to win with it last week! The new ball was great. I just love the way it flies, hangs in there and holds its line.”- Bo Van Pelt after he played it at the McGladrey Classic where he tied for 6th.

“I’ve liked the feel and flight of this ball since I first tested it in Hartford.” - Brett Quigley, who first tested the ball at the Travelers Championship, and then put it in play the first week at the McGladrey Classic. Brett made four consecutive cuts with the new ball to close out the season, including a T-22 at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

“I love the New Pro V1 because it fits my game very well. It has a great ball flight, is very durable and feels great around the green. This new Titleist golf ball is even better for me.” – Maria Hjorth following her season-ending victory at the LPGA Tour Championship. The win came after the first time she played the New Pro V1 in competition.

WHAT PLAYERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE NEW PRO V1x

“I put it straight into play and won. I was very confident with the New Pro V1x and hit it a long way. It is longer and holds its line better off the tee. It’s definitely got a more penetrating ball flight, has superb distance control and the Pro V1x has always been brilliant around the greens.” – Padraig Harrington, who won the Iskandor Johor Open in Malaysia the first time he put the New Pro V1x in play. Harrington was the first player to win with the New Pro V1x on the worldwide professional tours.

“I love this ball. It just cuts through the wind. I kind of hope it’s windy this week so I have an advantage over everyone. It is amazing.” - Webb Simpson, prior to the McGladrey Classic where he finished T-12. He finished T-4 at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open two weeks later.

“It flew with a nice trajectory and it carried well. I like the way it penetrated through a headwind. When you’re able to carry it a long way off the tee, and then spin it around the greens, that’s a perfect combination.” – Zach Johnson after testing the New Pro V1x for the first time.

“It has a higher ball flight which is what I am looking for. And the way it’s landing on these really firm greens, it’s able to stop a little quicker.” - Bubba Watson after playing the New Pro V1x for the first time at the Shark Shootout.

I gotta admit Titleist do make exceptional, exceptional, exceptional balls...

I was playing with the PRO-V1 332 for about a year and I lurve them. Only problem is the cost... I need a new box every 4-5 rounds.
I tend to cut the covers with the wedges I use.

Keep it up Titleist!

hi Titleist...can we expect some promotion on the old ProV1 and V1x stock in Singapore?

I'd love to support Singapore golf retailers, but could not justify buying ProV1s here when it's only US$40-45 at Titleist's home market. Especially given today's exchange rate.

cheers!

Hi pushslice,

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately it is difficult for us to comment on this as a lot of the time this is down to the retailers digression. Your best bet would be to check with your preferred retailer. Let us know if you have anymore questions.

Thanks for the comment playlikepro,

Some of the initial feedback we have been getting from consumer trials in Singapore has been good as far as durability goes. Check out some of these comments at the following link on our Facebook page:

Had the privilege to test out the prototype of this ball when Titleist SEA passed me a couple of sleeves to try out.

Here is an honest review of the new Pro V1X:

Distance
Definitely gets it out there. Even in the wet and muddy conditions Kranji was besieged with due to tons of rain over the last week, a decent poke leaves me with the same distance for 2nd shots into the green as compared to normal drier conditions. It was all carry and no run due to the soggy conditions.

Spin
I have to add that I have been trying out new CC wedges so I do not have a bench mark to compare it with the old ball used with my old wedges but although its suppose to give more, I do not see any markedly increase than the usual amount. However, it was still controllable enough to get my chips and pitches decently close.

Trajectory
My Adams Pro Black MBs do hit the ball higher than my other set of irons. This ball with the irons goes as high if not slightly higher. With my CC wedges where shots are suppose to be higher still due to the lack of traction with smaller grooves, the ballflight is manageable enough to get it sitting down after landing which is the problem with us amateurs using CC clubs. Also with the increase in height, flight doesn't look too affected even when playing into the wind.

Feel
Not much difference on Driver and iron shots. I was using a new Odyssey putter too and it felt the same as the old ball for putts. Distance control on the greens was very good though. A nice soft click without feeling too mushy.

Durability
This is where I think the ball was improved the most. After 9 holes on the back nine( I drove it into the water on the 1st) the ball was almost scuff-free with a few minor scratches. I was pleasantly surprised as I did thin a couple of shots but the ball was unscathed. The 2nd ball used for the rest of the back nine came off pretty well too.

Alignment
I went back to putting with no alignment aid usage of the ball so the alignment aid was of no use to me. Titleist went back to using the old markings before the previous design and I think they can't go wrong with that.




No matter what the situation, I always go back to the ball I trust the most when the game matters a lot and that has been the Pro V1X for the past 2 years. I have tried Callaways, Srixons, TM Penta and Bridgestones and although they are very very good balls that give Titleist good competition, Pro V1Xs will be the one I put my money on when overall performance matters.

Given the price of them are pretty high, I still hope for the day where ball prices here will be comparable to what we find in the USA where its more affordable.

Thanks to Rick and the team for allowing me to try out their new offering. I am impressed with the improvements of what is an already very very good product.
