Four new balls on offer from No.1 brand – including all-new Velocity ball


If you’re scouring around your local golf shop over the coming week you might want to ask about the line-up of market-dominating Titleist balls which have just been released. Titleist, the undisputed golf ball technology leader, has just released four new balls to its line – NXT Tour, NXT Tour S, Velocity and DT SoLo. Each has been designed to deliver best in category quality and consistency, while providing a range of performance and preference options for golfers across every skill level of the game.

New NXT Tour and NXT Tour S deliver the best scoring performance available with a non-urethane cover. Trusted by golfers for over a decade, NXT Tour has been improved for 2012 to deliver even longer distance while retaining its commanding scoring shot performance. New NXT Tour S offers NXT Tour-like performance with a softer compression feel. The all-new Velocity provides explosive distance via the fastest solid core of any Titleist golf ball. Titleist delivers the Softest DT yet in the New DT SoLo. Both NXT Tour S and DT SoLo are offered in optic yellow. New Velocity is also available with double-digit orange play numbers “00” “11” “22” “33”.

“Our golf ball product development process is the same for all Titleist golf balls,” said Bill Morgan, Senior Vice President, Golf Ball Research and Development. “It always starts with golfer testing where we identify performance improvements that will help golfers score better and determine what their preference options are. New Titleist NXT Tour, NXT Tour S, Velocity and DT SoLo are the result of this process and deliver the best scoring performance and quality within their respective segment.”

First introduced in 2001, the Titleist NXT Tour begins its second decade as the established best-performing, non-urethane covered golf ball in the game. The New NXT Tour has a large dual core, three-piece construction that features a slightly smaller, soft centre and higher volume outer core layer, that is engineered for increased power and longer distance than the prior model.
