It may seem like a little thing, but the ball you play with can make a big difference to your game. Whether you prefer a really soft feel or something stiffer, Titleist has a ball to fit your needs. But how can you know if you’ve got the right ball when you leave the pro shop? We’ve broken down the balls Titleist has to offer so you can be sure to grab the right ones.
Titleist Pro V1
This is one of the balls the pros use most, but it’s known for having a stiff feel. The newer Pro V1s are softer, yet still provide excellent spin control, long distance with irons, and more roll than similar Titleist golf balls.
Titleist Pro V1x
With even less spin than the Pro V1, the Pro V1x can gain lots of distance with a softer feel. The ball flight is flatter, with a later peak trajectory and steep downgrade to increase travel once the ball hits the fairway.
Titleist NXT Tour
The NXT Tour is similar in performance to the Pro V1, except that instead of running once it hits the ground, the NXT Tour has a habit of stopping dead in its tracks. It’s also much less durable if you play with deeply grooved wedges, but the soft feel may make up for that fault for some players.
Titleist NXT Tour S
“S” is for soft – the NXT Tour S is similar in play to the NXT Tour, but is extremely soft. The Tour S was designed for less spin on long shots than the NXT Tour, though distance is about the same.
Titleist NXT Tour S Yellow
Coloration is the only difference between the NXT Tour S and the NXT Tour S Yellow. Some golfers like to use a colored ball when playing a casual round, it can make finding the ball a little easier when it ends up in the rough.
If you’re looking for a really long ball with a soft feel, you can’t do better than the Velocity. Although the flight is intended to be low, the ball tends to come down shallowly and roll further than other Titleist balls.
Titleist DT SoLo
DT SoLos were designed with weekend golfers in mind. In fact, they play best at swing speeds below 90 miles per hour. These soft, low flight balls won’t be showing up on Tour anytime soon, but they’re great for a beautiful weekend of golf. DT SoLos also slip through high winds much more easily than their cousins due to their unique dimple pattern.
