2017 Pro-V-1 vs 2019 Pro-V-1

Recommended Posts

Have any of you on this site had a chance to compare these two balls? Their ads say "more speed". Does that translate into longer with the driver? I'm a senior with a slower swing speed, but I've found the '17 version works best for me in total performance. I've played several balls that are longer off the tee. However, they don't perform as well on and around the greens. I plan to give the '19 version a try when I run out of '17 balls.  It's always nice to be able to gain a few more yards for us older players. What are your thoughts?

It's mostly marketing hype. The 2017 was a great ball, and so is the 2019. They may subtly change the spin characteristics, trajectory and/or softness, but the USGA hasn't relaxed the distance limits that I've heard of, so both balls provide "extraordinary distance" - same thing it said in 2017. If you read their literature ad copy, you won't find them claiming more distance anywhere I can find.

All the ball manufacturers can make a ball that exceeds the USGA limits, they don't because of the limits. It's not as if they are new ball distance discoveries every year.
