PGA Tour Release of Titleist's Newest Pro V1 and Pro V1x Balls.
Normally, the most well-known golf ball makes its premiere at the Tour stop in Las Vegas, but a handful were released last week in Mississippi.
The most popular ball in golf's newest iteration debuted on the PGA Tour last week.
This week, the Tour is in Las Vegas for the Shriners Children's Open, where Titleist traditionally debuts its Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls of the newest generation.
Billy Andrade was the first player to triumph with a Pro V1 in the desert twenty-two years ago, and thousands of further victories followed all around the world.
But Titleist announced on Monday that MJ Daffue, Garrick Higgo, and Gary Woodland had used its 2023 models at the Sanderson Farms Championship the week before.
The three asked to use the balls at The Country Club of Jackson after testing them during the prototype phase.
The Pro V1 and Pro V1x are the best golf balls said Jordan Spieth, who used a Pro V1x for all three of his major championship wins and 13 PGA Tour victories.
Since nearly 20 years, Titleist has improved its Pro V1 and V1x balls every other year;
the most recent versions will probably be available for purchase by the general public in the early 2023.
The winners of all four of the 2022 men's major championships—Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas, Matt Fitzpatrick, and Cameron Smith—also used Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls.
