Here at Titleist, we believe performance is for every player, every round, every shot.

More than 45,000 golfers around the world participated in the R&D testing process for the new 2013 Pro V1 and Pro V1x, each golfer receiving prototype golf balls and having the opportunity to report their feedback through Team Titleist.

So we hit the road and met up with some Team Titleist members in California, Florida and Virginia to capture some of their initial reactions as they got to take the new golf balls out for a test drive.

A few TT members even made the final cut for the television vignette which you can watch here.

PGA Professional Barry Evans (Berry Hills Country Club, Charleston, WV) found the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x to be another step forward for the #1 ball in golf.

“It's hard to improve on something that is the best on the market. Knowing Titleist, they've tweaked it to make it that much better.”

Duncan found the improved performance of his new Pro V1 into greens to be a confidence builder: “It allows me to be a little bit more aggressive and trust my golf swing a little bit more.”

Dan B. was impressed by the feel and control of his new Pro V1 on his scoring shots: "It will just allow me to be a better all around player. Because it's something I can trust."

Brian particularly enjoyed the improved durability of his new Pro V1x: “The cover is extremely durable. I hit wedge shots, and hit spinners, and had the golf ball hold up 18 holes. That's fantastic.”

Tour validation continues for the New 2013 Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x, as Titleist golf balls were relied on by more than 300 players on the three professional tours competing worldwide this weekend.

At the AT&T National Pro-Am at Pebble Beach, three of the top five finishers relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Jimmy Walker (New 2013 Pro V1) and Titleist golf ball loyalist James Hahn (Pro V1x). On the Champions Tour, the winner trusted the New 2013 Pro V1x golf ball for the first time in competition and won his first-ever event at the Allianz Championship in Florida. Finally on the European Tour, Titleist Brand Ambassadors George Coetzee (New 2013 Pro V1x) tied for third place at the Joburg Open in South Africa, marking his fourth consecutive top-10 finish.

Let’s get to the Team Titleist weekend wrap-up…

In fact, Titleist golf balls were played by more than four times the nearest competitor with 23.

The T3 finish at Pebble Beach was the best of the year for Walker, who closed with a bogey-free 66 on Sunday. He has now played in and made the cut at all five full-field events this year, including a previous best finish of T4 at the Farmers Insurance Open. He is scheduled to play again in next week’s Northern Trust Open where he finished T4 a year ago, two strokes out of a three-way playoff which was won by fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas.

That's just what Team Titleist did last week when we parted ways with the Titleist tour van and the seven players inside the Top 10 who relied on a new 2013 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball for their success at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

So here we are, standing on the Monterey Peninsula with one of the most entertaining fields of the season. Where else can you find the 2012 U.S Open Champion and Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson and TV star Ray Romano on the same pairing sheet?

Whether professional or amateur, the majority of players know performance is the Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1xTitleist is the overwhelming top choice in golf balls at the Pebble Beach Pro Am with 102 of the professional players in the field of 156 relying upon a Pro V1 or Pro V1x, more than four times the nearest competitor with 23, and more than all competitors combined. 

There are 111 amateurs teeing up Titleist, more than five times the nearest competitor with 21.

Simpson is one of 60 professionals who will be relying upon a new 2013 Pro V1 (12) or Pro V1x (48) golf ball this week.

Titleist was also the favorite in the sand, lob and approach wedge (128) and putter (56) categories.

Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls continue to collect victories around the world as the champion of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic earned his second European Tour title, propelled by a switch to the new 2013 Pro V1x earlier in the week. And on domestic soil, seven of the top 10 finishers at the Waste Management Phoenix Open relied on Titleist golf balls for their success, including Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Piercy who fired a final round best 10-under 61 to move into solo third place.
