Titleist celebrates 10-year anniversary of Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls

Posted at 10:26 AM by David Dusek | Categories: Golf Balls, Titleist

Sunday, 10-10-10, marks the 10th anniversary of the PGA Tour introduction of the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. The Invensys Classic at Las Vegas was the place, and the Pro V1, a three-piece urathane-covered ball, proceeded to take the golf world by storm.

Today there are many excellent multi-layer golf balls on the market in several different price categories, but here are some impressive figures (provided by Titleist) that show just how dominant the Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls have become:

* Nearly 2 out of every 3 golfers on the PGA Tour play the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, which is more than five times the nearest competitor.

* The Titleist Pro V1 franchise has accounted for 275 wins on the PGA TOUR.

* According to Golf Datatech, through September 2010 the Pro V1 has been the best-selling golf ball in the marketplace for 115 consecutive months.

At the McGladrey Classic, Titleist began showing the fifth generation of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls to professionals. Look for these balls to make their way into pro shops in early 2011.
