    My club had a Titleist rep onsite providing customized ball fittings last week and I decided to give it a try. The rep (Jake Hardy) and I discussed my game and what ball I was currently using (Pro V1) before we started. As for the process, Jake had me hit a 70 yard shot (60* LW), a 7 iron and finally a driver. We started with the Pro V1 and the feedback from the Trackman was suboptimal-not enough spin resulted in a loss of yardage. I also tried the Pro V1x, AVX and Left Dash Pro V1 and it turned out (backed up by the data) that the Pro V1x was best suited for my long game. We then proceeded to hit greenside chip shots with a couple of different clubs and 10-15 putts to make sure I was comfortable with the Pro V1x. If you've never gone through the process, I highly recommend you do-the numbers don't lie and you may find, as I did, that a different ball my be better suited to your game. Thanks again Titleist for this type of service!

    Yep Jim, I went to a small group TT outing a couple of years ago at Pinehurst. It was primarily a wedge experience. Bob Vokey came and did a hands-on fitting with many of us. They also had the ball team there and did the same analysis hitting drivers, 7 irons, and wedges. I already knew what they were going to tell me and sure enough, like you, the ProV1x stood out as the ball I needed to play. I was a long-time ProV1 guy and was reluctant to change as I had a hard time adjusting to the firmer feel, especially on putts. The fitting convinced me to make the change and just learn the new feel over time. It took me a couple of months to adjust but I am glad I did. Overall, it really helped my game. Best of luck with your new selection and the results you will get!
  3. I was able to do a ball fitting at my club last fall. It was very similar to the previous posts on the clubs hit. We started on the driving range and I hit multiple balls with Driver, 5 iron, 7 iron and wedge. The Titleist fitter did not tell me which ball I was hitting. After the range session we went out to a long par 4 (420yds) with the approach shot over water. We went through the same process as what we did on the range. We then came back to the putting green. I only hit three putts and he had his recommendation. I had been playing the Left Dash, but he thought the ProV1x would be better. Even though I hit the Left Dash farther with the driver, I had better spin into the greens with the ProV1x. His thinking was give up a little distance for better spin into the green. The whole process was really informative with the data on each club and ball. At the time I had T100S irons on order and he offered to come back once they had been delivered if I thought it would be beneficial.
