Titleist 2019 Prototype Golf Ball

At this week’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas, the latest iteration of the #1 Ball in Golf has been tested and put into play by several of the pros teeing it up in the event.

This marks the tour debut for the next generation Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, available to players for the first time to play in competition.

Over the practice rounds at TPC Summerlin, members of the Titleist Golf Ball R&D team were busy testing these final Pro V1 and Pro V1x prototypes with players and fitting them into the model that helps them play their best.

Over the years, Titleist's tour seeding and validation process for new Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls has been held biennially at the PGA Tour's Las Vegas stop, with players arriving to their lockers to find the prototypes in their signature white boxes and sleeves.

It was at TPC Summerlin in 2000 that the original Pro V1 prototype was first introduced with 47 players immediately making the switch, including eventual winner Billy Andrade, a historic shift in equipment usage for a single tour event.
