Does anybody know anything about a Titleist Tour 90 golf ball? Are they balata covered? Were they the ProV1 predecessor?
Looking through some old golf balls a few days ago, I found an unused Titleist marked Tour 90. Sometime in the early 1990s, when I was playing more golf, I thought I had the skill to hit a "tour" type ball. I bought a box of 90 compression and a box of 100 compression balls. I found out the hard way that I wasn't ready: what balls I didn't lose to a wicked slice--only made worse by a ball that was meant for expert players who could shape their shots--I destroyed with mis-hits, giving the cover a ltttle "smilie face" cut. I have to say though, they were a pure joy to hit: soft as a baby's bottom.
I would love to hear from Titleist directly on this one. It would be quite interesting.
