How High Performance Golf Balls Benefit All Golfers

"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 V1x 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.
