Golf Ball Fitting

Find the best golf ball for your game


The Titleist Approach

At Titleist, we utilize our Tour-validated "Green-to-Tee" approach to golf ball fitting that successfully fits players of all abilities, from the world's best to high handicap amateurs. All Titleist golf balls are designed and manufactured to be exceptionally long off the tee, so when fitting golfers, we start at the green and work our way back to the tee.

Game assessment and golf ball selection

Game assessment and golf ball selection

Titleist golf ball fitting begins with your performance objectives and personal preferences. To do this, you can attend a ball fitting event or talk to your golf professional. 

The golf ball is the only piece of equipment you use on every shot.

Green-to-tee on course evaluation

Green-to-tee 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. These account for the majority of shots in your round. The golf ball that performs best on these shots is your key to lower scores. 

Putting your new ball in play

Putting your new ball in play

Now you’re ready to experience how your newly fit ball performs under fire. With the knowledge that you are now playing the best ball for your game, commit to playing that ball exclusively. Using the same model golf ball on every shot of every round eliminates performance variation, builds confidence and consistency, and ultimately results in you shooting lower scores.

Finding the right model for your game.

When you consistently use a Titleist golf ball that is properly fit to your game it places you on the path to a more consistent game and lower scores.

Performance on approach shots, pitches and chips

Performance on approach shots, pitches and chips

While driver distance is important, golfers average only 14 drives per round - a few extra yards off the tee is not game-changing. We prioritize fitting players into golf balls that will optimize their performance on the scoring shots. These consist of your approach shots, pitches, and chips. 

Every shot imparts spin

Every shot imparts spin

On longer shots golfers want lower spin as it contributes to longer, straighter shots. Off the tee, all Titleist golf balls offer low spin, and when tested with a driver there is less than a 500 RPM difference among all models.

On the scoring shots, golfers need more spin for stopping power and control. A ball with more short game spin allows you to hit shots closer, leading to lower scores. The difference in spin rate among models is significant and game-changing. On short shots, the difference in spin rate can be greater than 1500 RPMs between models, with Pro V1 and Pro V1x providing the best spin on the scoring shots for all golfers.

Hit the ball closer to the pin

Hit the ball closer to the pin

One key to shooting lower scores is to make more putts. Playing a golf ball that provides more spin and improved performance in the short game can make it easier to hit shots closer to your target, leaving you with consistently shorter putts.

Amateur golfers hole 12 foot putts just 15% of the time as compared to professionals who hole these putts 30% of the time. From 6 feet in, amateur golfers will hole their putts 40% of the time and at 3 feet in, these golfers will hole putts 75% of the time. The percentages speak for themselves: shorter putts are holed far more often.

Understanding Swing Speed

Same player. Different shots. Different speeds.

Many golfers are led to believe they should be fit for a golf ball based solely on their driver swing speed. This is a flawed approach. The truth is golfers use a wide range of swing speeds to execute the vast array of shots required in every round. The golf ball must perform with every club, at every speed, on every shot.

The role of compression

Some golfers tell us they don’t compress the ball enough to play a Pro V1 or Pro V1x. This simply isn’t true. Compression is solely a test of the relative softness of a golf ball, and a golfer that has a “feel” preference for a softer ball may prefer a lower compression ball. High speed photography shows that the difference in ball compression at widely varied swing speeds is virtually indistinguishable.

Pro V1 and Pro V1x deliver exceptional distance, superior short game performance, and extraordinary feel characteristics for every golfer, at every swing speed, and on every type of shot.
