There’s only one piece of equipment you use on every shot of every round — and that’s the golf ball. Whether you’re a scratch golfer looking to win your club championship or a beginner trying to break 90 for the first time, getting fit for the right ball is critical. At Titleist, our goal is to help all golfers play better and shoot lower scores, and being fit for the right golf ball is a key part of that.
Earlier this week, Golficity co-founders Michael and Frank Fasano stopped by TPC River Highlands and met up with Titleist fitters to find the best golf ball for their games.
“Before filming this video we had no idea how much knowledge and technology went into a golf ball fitting,” Golficity said.
What the process entails:
Step 1: Assessment and Selection
Titleist golf ball fitting begins with an assessment of your game, your performance objectives, and your personal preferences.
Step 2: Green-to-Tee On Course Evaluation
The Titleist Green-to-Tee fitting process involves an evaluation of all shots on the golf course, with the greatest emphasis placed on shots around and into the green.
Step 3: Putting the New Ball in Play
Commit to playing the golf ball you've been fitted for exclusively. Using the same model golf ball on every shot of every round eliminates performance variation, builds confidence and consistency, and will ultimately lead to you shooting lower scores.
By the end of the afternoon, both Michael and Frank found out they haven’t been maximizing spin, launch angle and stopping power, and ultimately, haven’t been playing the right ball for their games all along. Mike, who was playing the Pro V1, found out he needed to switch to the Pro V1x and Frank, who was playing the AVX, needed to switch to the Pro V1.
“Golf ball fittings like this one are the future of golf equipment selection,” Michael and Frank said after their fitting experience. “In one eye-opening afternoon we learned how much playing the right ball for your unique swing can help maximize your personal performance.”
