Live Webcast This Wednesday: The Facts About Golf Ball Performance and Fitting

Posted: May 2, 2011

Here at Titleist, we spend a lot of time in the field working with golfers of all skill levels, helping them lower their scores by fitting them with the best golf ball for their games. After all, golf is about shooting lower scores.

While we are in the field, we also hear a lot of misinformation from golfers about golf ball performance and ball fitting.

Some of the most common misconceptions we’ve heard include:

• “My swing speed is too slow to play a tour-level golf ball”;

• “I play whatever I find in my bag”; and

• “I’m not a skilled enough player for the golf ball to make a difference.”

And so we’ve asked our friends in Titleist Golf Ball R&D to help us “bust” a few of these myths via a Live Webcast this Wednesday, May 4 at 1:30 p.m. EDT.

Bill Morgan, Senior Vice President of Golf Ball R&D, and Mary Lou Bohn, Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing and Titleist Communications, will be sitting down with Team Titleist to discuss the facts surrounding golf ball performance and fitting and share their expertise and insight.

Bookmark this page and we hope to see you on Wednesday!

Some of the most common misconceptions we’ve heard include:

“I play whatever I find in my bag”;

Please explain to me how that is a misconception?



Years of costly equipment swapping added maybe 5 yards to my 220 yard drives. But in the season after I read Pelz's Short Game Bible, my scrambling percentages skyrocketed. So I'm a big fan of Titleist's emphasis on fitting from the hole rather than the tee.

I look foreward to joing you tomorrow.

Hi Jim G.,

Hopefully you can join us tomorrow for the webcast and we'll be sure to address how playing the same model golf ball every round can help your game.

Just got my first dozen of Pro-VX's.  I seem to get more altitude and "longatude".  This is a good thing...thanks Titleist.

Will it be possible to hear a replay if I have a conflict at 1:30 pm on 5/4.

I will not be able to watch your webcast at that time. Will it be made available again at another time? Please advise. Thank you.

Great question. We will be recording the Webcast tomorrow and plan to have it posted within a few days for any Team Titleist members who are unable to join us tomorrow. It will most likely be posted to the blog for viewing. Thanks a lot.

I'd like to know what ball to use in below 50 deg. temps and above 50 deg. temps. I use NXT in cold weather and ProV1X in warm.  Sound OK?
