Titleist Introduces New Pro V1 and Pro V1x Golf Balls – Longer Distance, More
Greenside Spin, Softer Feel
Core-to-Cover Innovations Establish New Standard of Golf Ball Performance
FAIRHAVEN, Massachusettes (January 2021)
– Increasing performance through every single layer of the golf ball, the new
Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x models are designed for longer distance, even more
greenside spin and control and softer feel – with the unmatched ball-to-ball
consistency and quality that golfers expect from Titleist.
Available beginning Jan. 27 in golf shops worldwide, 2021 Pro V1 and Pro V1x are
the result of new core, casing layer, cover and aerodynamic technologies –
including proprietary 388 (Pro V1) and 348 (Pro V1x) dimple designs optimized
for extraordinary distance and consistent flight – that combine to make the most
trusted and best performing golf balls in the game even better.
2021 PRO V1 & PRO V1x PERFORMANCE:
From the best players in the world to amateurs of all skill levels, new Pro V1
and Pro V1x are designed for golfers who prioritize performance above all else.
Both new 2021 models deliver longer distance, increased Drop-and-Stop™ greenside
control, softer feel and long-lasting durability – while maintaining their
differences in flight, feel and spin:
• New Pro V1 offers the greatest combination of speed, spin and feel in the
game, providing the best fit for the majority of golfers. Pro V1 flies lower
than Pro V1x with a penetrating trajectory and has a very soft feel.
• New Pro V1x has a fast, high flight and delivers spin when and where a golfer
wants it. Pro V1x is designed for players who want a higher trajectory and
increased spin relative to Pro V1, with a slightly firmer feel.
The new 2021 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls will be available in golf shops
beginning Jan. 27, 2021. Available in White (play numbers 1-4 and 5-8 in store
and 1-99 as custom order) and High optic yellow (play numbers 1-4). RRP 549 NOK.
Mer detaljert blant annet om nye dimpler og kjernen:
“When a golfer chooses Pro V1 or Pro V1x, they are choosing absolute
performance,” said Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing.
“Our R&D and Operations teams have spent years engineering new technology into
each and every component of 2021 Pro V1 and Pro V1x. When it comes to the
performance and quality of these products, we will continue to go to every
length possible to help golfers play their best and shoot their lowest scores.”
2021 PRO V1 AND PRO V1x TECHNOLOGY: Advancements in Titleist’s industry-leading
multi-component technology are precisely designed to work together, providing
total performance and extreme consistency on every shot:
• Reformulated 2.0 ZG Process Cores deliver increased distance in the
solid core Pro V1 and dual core Pro V1x.
• Faster High-Flex Casing Layer adds speed and lowers long game spin.
This highly-resilient, high-speed ionomer was initially developed for and
validated by Pro V1x Left Dash.
• New, Softer Cast Urethane Elastomer Cover – the softest cover
formulation ever used on a Pro V1 or Pro V1x – increases greenside spin for more
control in the short game.
• New Spherically-tiled Tetrahedral Dimple Designs – featuring a 388
dimple layout for Pro V1, and 348 for Pro V1x – are optimized to each model to
maximize distance and flight consistency. Pro V1 maintains its penetrating
trajectory while Pro V1x will fly higher than the prior generation.
AERODYNAMIC BREAKTHROUGHS: The new dimple designs on 2021 Pro V1 and Pro
V1x – the first entirely new patterns since 2011 – are the result of Titleist’s
unparalleled commitment to understanding and improving the flight of the golf
Since the original Pro V1 debuted 20 years ago, Titleist R&D has designed,
manufactured and tested more than 1,900 aerodynamic patterns. That includes more
than 60 different iterations of 2021 Pro V1’x 388 dimple layout, and more than
30 versions of Pro V1x’s 348 dimple design. “When we find a pattern we like, the
next step is making sure we find the best possible version of that pattern by
building and testing different variations of dimple depths, diameters, shapes
and surface coverages,” said Mike Madson, Titleist R&D’s Director of
Aerodynamics & Research Engineering “It takes years of work – we’ve been working
on these new packages for almost a decade – but it is that commitment to
research that ensures each golf ball is optimized to fly at its longest and most
PRECISION MANUFACTURING: The continued investment in advanced technology
and quality control at Titleist Ball Plants 3 and 4 – where every Pro V1 and Pro
V1x are manufactured by Titleist associates to the industry’s highest
performance and quality specifications – ensures that every new generation of
Pro V1 and Pro V1x are the best performing and most consistent models ever.
Consistency from ball to ball, and dozen to dozen is critical to allowing
golfers to consistently execute the same types of shots, round after round.
PLAYER VALIDATION: Since their November 2020 introduction on the PGA
Tour, many of the world’s best players have teed up new Pro V1 and Pro V1x in
competition including Justin Thomas (Pro V1x), Tony Finau (Pro V1), Adam Scott
(Pro V1x), Scottie Scheffler (Pro V1) – and Cameron Smith, who became the first
player in the history of The Masters to finish with all four rounds in the 60s
while playing new Pro V1x.
“When I first tested it, it was a bit hotter off the driver, which was great,”
Smith said. “The ball flight and windows were great. But the biggest thing that
stuck out was the control coming out of the rough and around the greens. I can
control my shots – especially those difficult, soft shots – so much better.”
