  1. Hey guys! I was at a local Country Club last week and found myself in some trees, luckily I found a Pro V1 chillin' in there that wasn't mine. Who could resist? It looked brand new... Anyways this one was different. It has a different cover feel, still sticky to the thumb but more durable after a wedge. Meaning it scuffed differently than my other ball, is this part of the new proto? I feel like i was graced with the chance to find and play one but who knows. I gotta get my hands on them!

    The 2019 prototype balls will have 2019 proto as the side stamp.
  3. They have the “normal” Titleist black logo and numbers but also have the side stamp- see photo

  4. Received three of the sample 2019 Titleist proto golf balls and was impressed with the ball flight, control and added distance achieved throughout the round. I shared the balls with two guys I team up with and believe you have two that are switching from Bridgestone to the new Titleist.
  5. Received my sleeve yesterday, sound off the putter feels more in depth but definitely will be put to the test at PGA West Greg Norman course in a couple weeks.


    Thanks Titelist

    I played with the 2019 Proto balls yesterday miss round. Started off the day with a srxn Z-Star and after 8 holes of hitting the ball well switched over. I wanted to know what these were like on a day I was compressing the ball well and hitting my usual shots.

    First shot was a driver that stuck sightly high toe and my immediate response was not good. I felt like I'd hit a rock (57 degrees out but not THAT cold). Ball flew okay but I'd thought it may have gone just OB (Blind landing area). Played a srxn for the provisional. Walking up to where I thought it may have been revealed that it was likely lost. Starting over to the provisional, I spotted a ball about 80 yards further up. It was my Proto.

    I was amazed because I didn't feel I had gotten that much distance with the mishit but who else would have played a 2019 Proto with a line in blue market on it? Despite the not great feel off the driver I went on to play the rest of the round with it and it still looks new. Cover held up and my woods all gained about 10-15 yards. Starting to wonder if it's USGA legal (it is a prototype, after all), but man these things are long AND I was able to spin a couple wedge shots back - something unheard of for a typical distance ball.

    Played the 2019 Proto ball for the 3rd time. I play the Pro V1 normally. The 2019 Proto seemed to play similar to the Pro V1, maybe slightly better. My typical shot off the tee is a fade. I was able to reliably fade the 2019 Proto using my driver and hybrid clubs. My iron shots went straight, unless I came into the ball not quite the way I wanted. My wedge shots seemed to be better than the Pro V1, and the 2019 Proto ball rolled nice in the greens. I felt like I had good control of my putts. Ball was reliable and predictable. The cover held up well also. I have a lot of Pro V1s to play with next year. Wish I could find out what the 2019 Proto ball is going to be. I really enjoyed playing it.

    Thanks again for letting try them!!
