(Excerpted from Titleist blog – January 20, 2015 )
It was in October 2000 that the original Pro V1 prototype first appeared on the PGA Tour at the Invensys Classic in Las Vegas. Forty-seven players put the ball in play that week, marking one of the largest shifts of equipment at one event in golf history. Four months later in March 2001 after launching to golf shops, Titleist Pro V1 became the best-selling golf ball in the marketplace.
In 2003 Titleist launched the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls and they have continued to be the most played golf balls at all levels of competition since that point in time. The Pro V’s have also remained the best selling ball on the planet reinforcing Titleist’s “The #1 ball in golf”.
The research and development behind the Pro V1 and V1x is second to none and with each generation of Pro V (every two years) there are improvements to the most popular ball on the market.
Beginning January 30, 2015 the newest generation of Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball became available in the United States. This ball was designed for all golfers seeking to lower their scores and the 2015 titleist Pro V1 and V1x certainly deliver.This new generation delivers exceptional distance with consistent flight, more short game control and even softer feel from a new, patented urethane elastomer cover formulation, and long lasting durability.
The 2015 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls feature a new, patented thermoset urethane elastomer cover that delivers more short game spin and control, and softer feel – while maintaining their exceptional distance and flight characteristics, and best-in-class durability. The softer, reformulated cover system improves feel, sound and short game scoring control, providing golfers the confidence and performance to hit it closer to the hole.
Said Mary Lou Bohn, Vice President of Titleist Golf Ball Marketing and Communications:
“When we set out to improve Pro V1 and Pro V1x, the product development process always starts with asking golfers how we can help them shoot lower scores,” Bohn said. “Since golfers have had such resounding success with Pro V1 and Pro V1x, this time around, they told us, ‘Don’t change much. I love the distance. I love the scoring performance. I love the durability. If you can give me slightly more spin in the short game as well as even softer feel, I’ll take it. I just don’t want to give anything up.’ So that became our design goal.”
New Pro V1 and Pro V1x also maintain their long-lasting durability. The new urethane cover, combined with the improved paint system that debuted on the 2013 models, keeps Pro V1 and Pro V1x whiter and brighter longer throughout the course of play. The cover and paint system also contributes to an aerodynamically more consistent golf ball.
The 2015 Titleist Pro V1 and V1x continues to be the #1 ball of the planet. Visit Golf Balls Galore for the lowest prices available on Titleist Golf balls!
