I had a very good ball fitting with Luke in Atlanta today. I have been playing the Pro V1X since its introduction and I was interested to see that on TrackMan the there was not as much difference in the performance data between the 2 balls. Luke recommended that I stay with the X
I immediately went out an played 9 holes - I'd still be out there if it hadn't started raining - using both the 2019 Pro V1X Prototype and the current version. Sort of a mini side-by-side comparison.
What I learned about the new ball is that:
- It is a little longer on tee shorts with the drive. In 6 drives, using a TS2 TPT17, 2-8 yards greater distance
- I had more control and more confidence chipping with the prototype.
- Longer putts felt better, more solid.
A very small sample size but this is a better ball. All to often ball upgrades are, meh, higher prices but I think Titleist may be on to something with the 2019 Pro V1X.
Good work Titleist!
