The 2017 Pro V1 has been reengineered with a Next Generation 2.0 ZG Process Core to provide more distance on all shots through lower long game spin and faster ball speed, while maintaining soft feel and short-game performance.
A new spherically tiled 352 tetrahedral dimple design is used to provide a penetrating trajectory.

Choosing between the performance of Pro V1 and Pro V1x, golfers will notice differences in flight, feel and spin. Pro V1 flies lower with a penetrating trajectory and feels softer. Pro V1x flies higher, has a slightly firmer feel, and spins more on iron shots.
“Every time we set out to develop new Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, our challenge is to set an even higher benchmark for golf ball performance,” said Michael Mahoney, vice president of Titleist golf ball marketing.
“We are constantly in the field talking to golfers of all skill levels about what we can do to help them shoot lower scores. At the same time, the Titleist golf ball R&D and pperations teams are working together to develop new golf ball technologies that deliver performance golfers may not yet realize they need,” he said.
Bill Morgan, senior vice president of Titleist golf ball R&D, says golfers of all levels can find the right fit with the new models.
“No matter their playing ability, golfers have a simple choice when it comes to choosing the best golf ball for their game,” said Morgan.
“Either Pro V1 or Pro V1x will give you the best opportunity to shoot your lowest score. The decision purely comes down to flight, feel and spin. As we’ve told the pros, while you may consider yourself a ‘V’ or an ‘X’ player, we think this is a great time for you to reevaluate both Pro V1 and Pro V1x to see which 2017 model is the best fit for your game,” he said.
