  1. Hey everyone,

    I was just checking out the ball count from the U.S. Women's Amateur at Old Waverly Golf Club and it was pretty amazing to see that 137 players in the field of 156 teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball. That's 88% of the field on one of the biggest stages in the Amateur game!

    And one of the reasons why I think this is so impressive, is that these women are at the top of their game and they choose to play a Titleist. There's no money in it for them, no endorsement deals, we can't even mention the players by name ... they choose to play the balls our teams work day-in and day-out to make the very best in the game.

    You guys and gals could play whatever you want as well (and trust me we are beyond grateful that you also choose Titleist), so, the question for all of you is ... why do you play Titleist? 

    I've seen first hand the heart and soul that is poured into our products by all of our teams, so it's easy for me to answer. I know without a shadow of a doubt that the teams here have done everything possible to deliver the best performance for my game and that's why I play Titleist.

    No other company has the performance that Titleist has. If we are talking strictly balls, the Titleist ball has been my go-to-ball since my early high school years 30 years ago & I haven't played another ball competitively since. The ball just does what I want it to & on a consistent basis. I know that I can rely on the ball to check if I need it to check & stop on a dime. The consistent performance is undeniable. Even in the club sector, I see that every iteration of clubs, every year is a step up from the next. They learn year after year what players are looking for, then they put the R&D into it & always produce a beautiful, performing club.
    That's why I can't wait for my Titleist Thursday at the end of the month to hit the new T-series of irons.
  3. The feeling, quality, and proven past! I've hit a bunch of different irons, wedges, drivers and putters and nothing has come close to comparing. With Titleist, I know when I've hit it great, good, okay and bad and for me that is indispensable.

    The reason that I play is probably common, but as a young kid saving my money going up to the local club to play, all the "good" players i saw had the script baby! Their clubs, their hat and on their bags! It was a sign of excellence, if the best players use it, it has to be good stuff! I couldn't wait until I could one day be able to use Titleist equipment! Then I saw the 975 head cover with the stripes and it was OVER! No other company stood a chance, when i was able to make my own money and buy my own equipment it was going to be Titleist! I just wanted to be a "good player" with the best equipment. It seemed as though Titleist was THE brand!

    Now here I am 18 years later and its still the same. Ive played titleist for as long as i can remember and its proven itself over and over! Its the script life baby!!

    The look, the feel, the trust in quality in production. There nothing like having the confidence and trust in the products titleist produces. They make it extremely easy to be loyal and passionate customer.

    Consistency and Feel. I know when I'm hitting a ProV1x that any issues w/ performance is the golfer, not the ball. Also, there is no better sound in golf than the sound a ProV makes when it hits the green on an approach shot.

    I am not the best golfer, but I deserve the best ball! Titleist is the #1 ball!
  9. Titleist is a choice based on a variety of reasons. The primary reason is the "people" at Titleist. I feel the Titleist Professionals are at the top of their game along with the commitment to quality no matter which continent I visit Titleist around the globe. Period!

    Consistency. Quality. Unmatched dedication to excellence.

    The first 2, consistency and quality have always been apparent to me. As far back as my youth days, finding that Titleist ball in the woods and keeping it in play for myself was a highlight. At that time I wasn't exactly buying my own stuff and would often play what I could scrape up for equipment. There was something obviously special about the Titleist balls. That is when my admiration for Titleist began and today the Pro V1 continues to be a staple in my game. If I do my job as a golfer, the Pro V1 does exactly what it is supposed to do (and what I expect) over and over.

    As for the dedication to excellence; I always knew that Titleist was a great brand. I read all the articles. I knew the reputation. I experienced just how good of a product Titleist was turning out with the results in my own game. However, two things took my admiration to the next level.
    1 - It wasn't until I got involved with Team Titleist that I truly realized the commitment that the individuals within the company have for the brand. Titleist is a company that truly listens to it's user base. Yes, the Tour is the primary driver of product direction. But they also listen to the amateur community. The Titltiest teams then take this feedback and incorporate it in to products that perform for all levels. It's fun to watch and even better to be a part of.
    2 - Ball Plant 3 tour. Just go do it. Seeing product experts that take pride in their craft is a special thing, no matter the industry. You can't help but walk away and have a much greater appreciation for what these folks are doing.

    Thanks for the fun topic, MD. Looking forward to seeing you at Kohler.

    I started out (age 59) wondering why everyone didn't just buy 2 piece (rock hard) distance balls at $12 for 15 balls. Over time, as I gravitated to Titleist clubs I started with NXT, and finally into the Pro-Vs. In part due to the lack of amber balls from Titleist, I had been in search of a ball (amber) to compare to a Pro-V. At some point, I've tried them all. When I would go back to a V, I would just score better. You can't beat confidence at knowing what to expect and expecting your best results.

    So I've played it for many years like many others and the consistency in its quality builds trust and confidence in me. #ProV1

    Yeah, the clubs and balls get the job done... But the customer service is the best going!

    Like many of the others - consistency and performance. I've tried others and they are fine, just not as good for me and my game. Now that I can afford to play the ball and the clubs I want to, I will choose Titleist.

    I play Titleist because it is the most consistent ball on the market. The first ball out of a dozen is the same as the last,dozen after dozen. All Titleist equipment is second to none in all ways.

    Everything in my bag is Titleist or FootJoy; the quality is unsurpassed in my humble opinion. My driver, fairway, hybrid, irons, putter, balls, golf bag and hat. I have had guys at the club jokingly ask if Titleist and FootJoy sponsor me....lol

    I started using a Bullseye putter in the 70's and in the mid 80's I purchased my persimmon woods and DTR irons. I have FootJoy shoes, gloves and apparel.

    I currently play 718 AP2, 917 driver & fairway, 816 hybrid, Vokey Wedges, ProV1x to go with along with GoLo 3 putter.

    The best thing about Titleist is that they have a set R&D schedule that has a serious development on a 2 year cycle. I have never had trouble with any Titleist products.

    Simply put....Titleist inspires confidence.

    Quality, Consistency and the people of the Brand.

    I've said for many years that the ProV1 and ProV1X are the best balls made, period. I'll admit I have strayed and tried another ball from time to time, to see what all the hype was about. And guess what that's what most of it was, hype. And so a couple years ago, i returned to playing the ProV1 then the Prov1X--after a ball fitting--100% of the time and the results speak for themselves.

    So the Quality has been proven, the consistency over the years from the very first one I played in 2001 or 2002 I believe to the current model. And lastly I've had the great pleasure to meet several people behind the brand and everyone single one of them, has been among the most passionate and customer focused people that I've met.

    Sorry that's a long answer to a short question, but it such quality deserves to be recognized.

    I could go on and on but why when just a few lines will say it all.

    The best quality in clubs, balls, bags, accessories and most of all the best customer service and support in the business. And that goes all the way from Team Titleist staff to the R&D and research as well as product devlopment. Simply put you can play the rest or the best I choose the best! Titleist!

    Titleist balls give me everything I look for. Drop and stop performance and distance. The balls have the best feel off my clubs. Excellent feel with the flat stick. I have played Titleist my entire golfing life 45 years! #1 ball and clubs in business.
