List for Prototype Testing

Hi Everyone, 

We have received a lot of questions regarding how individuals are put on the list for prototype golf ball testing. All Team Titleist members are considered when we have opportunities like the recent test panel. We do our best to include as many Team Titleist members as possible but as you can imagine, we can't include everyone in every test panel.

However, we are planning on more opportunities like this in the future for Team Titleist members along with exclusive sweepstakes and other special giveaways. 

As for the selection process, it varies depending on the opportunity but most are random selections. Also, the more you participate and the more engaged you are with Team Titleist, from posting in the discussions and adding blog comments to completing your profile, the better your chances are at potentially opening the doors to these Team Titleist rewards.

We sincerely appreciate everyones interest in prototype testing and involvement in Team Titleist.  

Take care,

Bubba

Bubba, thank you very much for the post and clarifing the "rules of the road" for testing products.  I think this post will draw most everyone's attention and hopfully continue to expand the Team Titleist community.

Hey Bubba,

It's often discussed whether or not the profile settings of what's in our bags is used in consideration.  For example, I use the Pro V1x ball so it's often discussed if Titleist is testing the new version of the NXT or Solo line-up, would Pro V1 users be utilized or does Titleist try to kept within it's user market?

Just curious

Bubba, I was lucky to receive a sleeve of balls, two years ago. It took time, but I did find out which ball I was sent. With the post about new balls having circles and squares on them, I am sure that is a great way for TT staff to know which balls are being commented on. I hope that at some point after testing results are in, that TT will share which balls have the circles, and which have the squares. You can imagine the frustration of finding a ball you really love, but not knowing what to purchase.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the question. 

Our selection process for prototype testing is random and not associated with what ball an individual states they use in his or her profile.  However; the more complete your profile is and the more you participate in Team Titleist, the higher the likelihood you will be selected for testing.

Thanks again for your support.

Hey Bubba,  I have received test balls on couple of occasions and really enjoy participating in the feedback. My question is, does titleist ever send out other equipment or accessories for evaluation?  I look forward to your response.  Thanks.

Hi Ricky, 

Thanks for the question.

We do not send out other pieces of equipment to test, only golf balls.  Hopefully you will be on the next list to receive some white sleeves.

Thanks again for your support.

Bubba,
i'll be honest, i was super excited to get a sleeve of test balls two falls ago. until i tried them. i'm a scratch handicap and rarely loose balls...the test balls i recieved were cut by wedges in consecutive 9 holes. (27 holes, all 3 balls were toast). I don't know if the sleeve i got was faulty or what but, i noted in my review and was kinda bummed they didn't last longer.

just an observation is all -

Great job Titleist. It is one of my favorite websites to visit. And the contest and random giveaways are always exciting. I love the Pro V1's and the Titleist clubs that I have, and it's great to have a site like this. Thank You.

Hi Bubba

just received my two sleeves of test balls.  Cannot wait to start testing them.  This is a great thing for Titleist and their fans.

hi bubba

james of tt I to have received test balls in the past and found them to be all better then the last ,my profile shows I use pro v1 but I tend to use all titleist golf balls when the conditions might favor that ball so if I receive two different test balls I would evaluate each one and comment on how they preform ,and if you play titleist you can tell witch ball is witch

Great info Bubba, and thanks again for the opportunity to be a part of the Titleist Team!!!
