has Reviewed the New Titleist Pro V1

From (January 2013)
Titleist has officially released the latest versions of the most popular golf balls on the PGA Tour, the Pro V1 and Pro V1x.

Bill Morgan, senior vice president of golf ball research and development at Titleist, says, “This is the softest feeling Pro V1 we have ever made.”

The three-piece Pro V1 has a large, solid core under an ionomer casing layer and a 352-dimple urethane cover. According to Morgan, the core material is fundamentally the same, but subtle tweaks have helped Titleist lower its compression and make the ball feel softer. He says doing that makes the ball spin slightly less than the last version.

According to Morgan, golfers will notice the slightly-reduced spin most when hitting long irons, but not as much when hitting drivers.

“Doing that means we’ve lowered the flight off the driver a little bit,” Morgan says. “It’s a little flatter, controlled flight.”

He also notes that because the ball does not fly as high, it comes down on a slightly lower angle that should create more roll in the fairway. Morgan says that amateur players can expect to gain about 5 yards with the new Pro V1.

Around the green and on approach shots, the cast urethane cover is designed to help create more spin and control.
