Titleist Pro V1 golf ball review: NCG Summary

golf ball testing
5 star review
NCG SUMMARY

The 2023 Titleist Pro V1 builds on the incredible technology Titleist already had in place.

I found the 2023 model to be more consistent than its predecessor, especially in terms of dispersion.

If you loved the 21 Pro V1, do not panic, you still have the great soft feel, and short-game spin control we have come to expect.

PROS

  • Extremely consistent
  • Tighter dispersion
  • Soft feel
  • Great short-game spin control

CONS

  • Expensive
  • Spins less than Pro V1x

First Impressions

Can you have a first impression of a golf ball? It’s still small, white and round but has that brand-new glossy finish you wish would last forever. As a long-time Pro V1 user, I was eager to hit this and see how it would perform.

NCG Review

The Pro V1 line features Titleist’s most premium and high-performing golf balls. Of the two main models, the Pro V1 and the Pro V1x, the Pro V1 is designed to fly the lowest, which is why it is my model of preference. The Pro V1x does, however, spin slightly more than the Pro V1.

So how did it perform compared to the 2021 model?

The big tech story with these golf balls was to provide longer distances, lower long-game spin and greater consistency. So the first thing to do was get the driver out and see if we could see any notable differences.

Now I should state testing golf balls is one of the hardest things to do. The impact variables undoubtedly change every time you hit a ball, so you are not always comparing apples to apples. But aside from investing in a robot, I can do nothing about this.

The 2021 and 2023 golf balls were very similar in terms of data. I was spinning the ball pretty low for me throughout the testing; on average, the spin was identical. My strikes were more toe bias with the 2021 model, which would have dropped the spin down slightly.

Pro V1 data

I think the big difference for me between the two was that the ball flight went more stable. You can see many of my data variables were similar across the two models, but the 2023 Pro V1 was much improved in terms of dispersion. This wasn’t what I expected when I set out to do the testing. I think some of this came down to the ball being more stable in wind.

I also felt the 2023 ball stayed in the air longer while watching the ball flight during testing. This is reflected in the carry distances, with the new ball being about 2 yards longer. It also flew slightly higher, which will have affected the visual of the flight too.
