Titleist 2019 Pro V1 & Pro V1x Golf Balls: Engineered for More Speed

Faster from core to cover, the new Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls have been designed to leave the clubface with more ball speed and lower long game spin for more distance, while retaining their renowned short game control.

Technology

Innovations in Titleist’s industry-leading multi-component technology and precision manufacturing process have combined to deliver the most advanced Pro V1 and Pro V1x models yet.

17% thinner cast Urethane Elastomer cover system: The enhanced thermoset urethane casting technology has allowed for a thinner layer of the proprietary cover formulation, creating more speed while retaining its trusted ‘drop-and-stop’ greenside control and soft feel.

Faster ionomeric casing layer: Beneath the thinner cover, the speed-enhancing casing layer has thickened by 14% on Pro V1 and 11% on Pro V1x, creating higher ball speeds with lower driver and long game spin.

New 2.0 ZG Process Cores: The outermost portions of the solid core Pro V1 and dual core Pro V1x have increased in stiffness while maintaining their soft centres,
creating higher ball speeds and lower long game spin.

High Optic Yellow Option

Golfers who have a preference for yellow balls will be glad to know that the 2019 Pro V1 and Pro V1x will have a new preference option in high optic yellow. The high-visibility colour option will be available from March 15.

Choosing Between Pro V1 and Pro V1x

Golfers will notice similar differences in flight, feel and spin as the prior generation models. The lower-flying Pro V1 has a penetrating trajectory with very soft feel, while the higher-flying Pro V1x spins more on iron shots and has a slightly firmer feel.

The Pro V1 is a three-piece, multi-component ball with a thinner cast Urethane Elastomer cover system, faster ionomeric casing layer, new 2.0 ZG Process Core and spherically-tiled 352 tetrahedral dimple design.

The Pro V1x boasts four-piece, multi-component technology with a thinner cast Urethane Elastomer cover system, faster ionomeric casing layer, new 2.0 ZG Process Dual Core and spherically-tiled 328 tetrahedral dimple design.

Precision Manufacturing

The continued investment in technology and quality control at Titleist Ball Plants 3 and 4 ensures that every new generation of Pro V1 and Pro V1x are the best performing and most consistent models. Consistency from ball to ball, and dozen to dozen, is critical to allowing golfers to consistently execute the same types of shots.

On Tour

The introduction of new Pro V1 and Pro V1x in November 2018 across the worldwide tours resulted in immediate validation and success.

Playing the new Pro V1 for the first time in competition, Charles Howell III won the RSM Classic in a sudden-death playoff for his first PGA Tour victory in 11 years. Howell, who made the switch from 2017 Pro V1x, shot a final-nine 31 that included birdies on three of his final four holes.

Howell is one of more than 60 players that have put the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x in play around the world since the tour seeding and validation process began.

Cameron Smith won the Australian PGA Championship playing the new Pro V1x, making three birdies on the final nine to win by two shots. Brian Harman (new Pro V1) and Patton Kizzire (new Pro V1x) put the 2019 models in play for the first time at the two-man QBE Shootout, teaming up to win by one shot with a 30-under total.

The first victory for the 2019 models came on the Japan Tour, where Tatsunori Nukaga used the 2019 Pro V1x to win his maiden professional title at the Visa Taiheiyo Masters. Two weeks later, Ho-Sun Choi earned his second Japan Tour victory playing the new Pro V1x at the Casio World Open.
