GOLF BALL FITTING

The golf ball is the only piece of equipment you use on every shot. At Titleist, our goal is to help all golfers play better and shoot lower scores, and being fit for the right golf ball is an important part of that. We believe that a proper golf ball fitting takes place on the golf course, and the Titleist Tour-validated “Green-to-Tee” approach successfully fits players of all abilities, from the world’s best to high-handicap amateurs.

The Titleist Approach

Step 1: Assessment and Selection
Titleist golf ball fitting begins with an assessment of your game, your performance objectives, and your personal preferences.  

Step 2: On Course Evaluation
The Titleist Green-to-Tee fitting process involves an evaluation of all shots on the golf course, with the greatest emphasis placed on shots into and around the green.

Step 3: Play Your New Ball
Commit to playing the golf ball you've been fitted for exclusively. Using the same model golf ball on every shot of every round eliminates performance variation, builds confidence and consistency, and will ultimately lead to you shooting lower scores.

Golf Ball Fitting FAQ's

Can All Golfers Benefit From Golf Ball Fitting?

Every golfer, regardless of ability, age, and gender can benefit from going through a golf ball fitting. Why? Because there is no more essential piece of equipment than the golf ball. It is the only piece of equipment a golfer will use on every shot, and there are many game-changing performance and quality differences between golf ball brands and their various models, especially on shots into and around the green. A Titleist golf ball properly fit to your game will help you play better, shoot lower scores, and enjoy the game even more. See the Benefits of a Titleist Golf Ball Fitting.

Why are Pro V1 and Pro V1x the best golf balls for all golfers?

Am I good enough to play Pro V1 or Pro V1x?

What are the differences between Pro V1 and Pro V1x?

Pro V1 and Pro V1x are designed for any golfer seeking to shoot lower scores. They offer total performance – providing extraordinary distance, superior short game spin and control, optimized flight characteristics, very soft feel, and long-lasting durability. Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls
provide golfers with everything they need in a golf ball without having to compromise in any area.

Pro V1 and Pro V1golf balls are designed for all golfers, not just highly skilled players. In fact, a less skilled golfer can benefit even more than a highly skilled golfer when using a Pro V1 or Pro V1x. Why? Pro V1 and Pro V1x provide the very best performance for any golfer when they hit a shot well, but what is often overlooked is the forgiveness of Pro V1 and Pro V1x. The advanced technology that goes into designing and manufacturing Pro V1 and Pro V1x provides you with the forgiveness you need to achieve the best possible result even when you do not hit a shot as solidly as you envisioned.

Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls are the total package, providing extraordinary distance with low long game spin, more consistent flight, and outstanding Drop-and-Stop™ control.

While the Pro V1 and Pro V1x both deliver total performance to all golfers, there are key performance differences between the models that are relevant when considering which golf ball is the best fit for your game.


If Pro V1 and Pro V1x can benefit all golfers, why does Titleist make other golf balls?

Which Titleist Golf Ball is the Straightest?

While all golfers want performance, individual preferences can also influence the golf ball selection process for some golfers. Feel, color, price, appearance (play number or markings), and durability are all examples of player preferences. If preferences factor into your selection process, NXT Tour, NXT Tour S, Velocity, and DT TruSoft are Titleist golf balls designed to meet the complete range of player preferences. They are the best performing and highest quality golf balls in each segment of the market.

Many golfers mistakenly believe that they can help “cure” their offline tee shots with a low spin, distance golf ball. This is not the case. All Titleist golf balls are low spin off the driver, with a minimal difference between all models. 

It is also important to remember that low spin, distance golf balls are typically low spin on all shots, which can have a detrimental impact on scoring shot performance. The difference in spin rate on scoring shots between models is significant and game-changing.

Playing golf balls like Pro V1 or Pro V1x, which are low spin off the driver, but provide substantially more spin on the scoring shots than other models, allows golfers to have more control and hit shots closer to the hole more frequently.

Should I be playing a Low Compression Golf Ball?

Many golfers are mistakenly led to believe that they should be fit for a golf ball based solely on their driver swing speed. This is a flawed approach. The truth is that every golfer has many different swing speeds, not just one. Golfers utilize a wide range of swing speeds to execute the vast array of shots that are required in every round. To play your best, the golf ball must perform for all of these different shots. Swing speed should not be a factor when deciding which golf ball is best for you.


Same player. Different shots. Different Speeds.

All Titleist golf balls are designed and manufactured to be exceptionally long off the tee, with all of our models measuring within 4-6 yards of each other. Simply put, there is no significant distance advantage to be gained when selecting one Titleist model over another. Additionally, in any given round, whether you shoot under par or over 100, you will only hit your driver a maximum of 14 times.

For these reasons, when we fit a golfer into a golf ball, we start at the green and work back to the tee, working to optimize the golfer’s performance on the scoring shots (chips, pitches, and approach shots) as this is where every golfer has the greatest opportunity to improve their score.

A common misconception among golfers when selecting a golf ball is that they should match a ball’s compression to their swing speed, believing that they will get added distance or better performance from the low compression golf ball. This is misguided. Golfers compress the golf ball on every shot at every speed, and the difference in golf ball compression is minimal at widely varied swing speeds.

So what exactly is compression and why should golfers care about it? Compression is solely a test of the relative softness of a golf ball. If a golfer has a feel preference for a softer feeling golf ball, they may prefer to play a lower compression golf ball.

High-speed photography shows that there is minimal difference in golf ball compression at widely varied swing speeds.
