Titleist is synonymous with best in class - especially when it comes to golf balls.  No company invests more in development, research and testing of their golf balls.  Whether it's their tour-level top tier Pro V1 or their affordable distance golf ball, TruFeel - Titleist is focused on performance. 

But, it's important within the Titleist brand that you have an understanding for which ball is right for you, so we'll break down the difference and try to point you in the right direction...

The Pro V1 Family 

At the top are the Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x.  These are the balls you will find most tour players using, as well as most single digit or competitive golfers.  Why is that?  It's because Pro V1 is a 3 piece golf ball, which means from the core to the outer layer there are a lot of variables to play with in order to choose ideal flight characteristics.

It means you can design a golf ball that spins little off the tee with the driver, and spins a lot around the greens.  It also has varying launch angles depending on the club, distance and ball velocity on approach shots.  Simply stated, Pro V1 offers forgiveness off the tee and tremendous control on approach shots and around the greens.  

The difference between Pro V1 and Pro V1x (4 piece) can be simplified in this way...  Pro V1x Pro V1 has a softer feel, less spin and flatter trajectory than Pro V1x, which makes it the preferred model for players who like exceptionally long distance, the ability to flight shots, and score with precision and touch.


Pro V1-like performance but very low compression, lower flight and lower spin for most players.  So if you hit it well but extraordinarily high - this is probably the ball for you!

Tour Soft 

One of our favourites for the average golfer who is looking for a soft feel and some performance around the green.  This ball feels soft, sounds soft but offers some great spin control.  It's also long - provided extra distance for most players.


Distance.  Distance.  Distance.  This ball is long and fast - it launches high with limited spin for more carry and more... distance.   Featuring NaZ+ cover, you may not achieve a lot of spin control around the greens, but it will feel soft coming off the face of your wedge or putter.  


The lowest compression ball in the Titleist lineup but with a great blend of feel, performance and distance.  Lower compression can help those with lower clubhead speeds pickup some extra ball velocity especially given the larger more active TruTouch core.  The 3.0 TruFlex cover will provide some feel and spin control around the greens, making TruFeel a very well-rounded golf ball!

So there we have it, a quick summary of the performance differences between the various Titleist golf ball models.  There really is something for everyone - and to be totally clear... every Titleist ball is designed to be the highest quality and best performing on the market!  So treat yourself to the #1 ball in golf!
