Which golf ball is right for your game?

2023 Titleist Pro V1

For more than two decades, the Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x have been the most-played golf balls on the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour, the LPGA Tour and at every major amateur event, including the NCAA Championships, but the Titleist portfolio of golf balls goes much deeper than those two offerings. According to Titleist, in 2023, the company’s golf balls were used to win 159 professional events, while the next closest competitor scored 28.

Titleist golf balls are typically updated on two-year product cycles, so after the 2023 release of new versions of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x, it was not surprising that the brand did not release another update before the start of the 2024 season. However, Titleist did drop a new AVX, Tour Soft and TruFeel.

The Titleist Tour Speed, which had been a complimentary ball to the Tour Soft, has been discontinued to streamline the family of offerings.

For 2024, there are seven golf balls available at retail, with the Pro V1, Pro V1x and Pro V1x Left Dash elevated to the most-premium position in the lineup. Titleist feels that if price is not taken into consideration, those three golf balls offer the best overall performance and one of them would be ideal for nearly all golfers. However, price, as we all know, is a factor for most golfers when it comes to buying golf balls, so the other four balls — AVX, Tour Soft, Velocity and TruFeel — are designed with specific player types in mind and at lower prices.

The best way to find out which Titleist golf ball is best suited for your game is to try them, starting around the green with chip shots, pitch shots and short approach shots before progressing into iron shots and finally tee shots. Consider how much spin you generate and the control you have with your wedges, the flight of your iron shots produce and then the distance you create with your fairway woods and driver. Prioritize what you need your golf ball to do, then take price into consideration, and you should be able to find a solid choice for your game and your wallet.
