Prov1 Makes Las Vegas 2000 Debut

Chuck Z

Interesting bit of history.

Little did anybody know in October 2000 that the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball would become one of, if not, the most revolutionary products in golf equipment history. 17 years ago, at the Invensys Classic at Las Vegas (now the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open), 47 players switched to the Pro V1 the first week it was available. Las Vegas was the first event in which Tour players could play Pro V1 in competition after it was added to the Fall 2000 Edition of the USGA Conforming Golf Ball List. Billy Andrade won the Invensys Classic the first week the new Pro V1 was available, and said it “resurrected his career.”

    Thanks. That is my folds of honor bag. I have been looking for head covers to blend in with my white Titleist head covers and finally found them in California. Broke them out today at the City of Charleston Men's Senior Annual Invitational Golf Tournament. Veterans Day is just around the corner so figured I would bring it out.
