Titleist Virtual Golf Ball Fitting

Got my appt. today at 2pm. Probably wouldn't bother doing this, but I'm off due to a work injury and quite bored.  Curious to see what he says as I love the Prov1. The X I think has too much greens side spin for my liking and I feel that the extra spin off the tee hurts me due to swing flaw. Loved the AVX when it came out, but when greens get hard It lost me due to lack of spin. Interested to hear his thoughts on the new AVX  as it is supposed to have more spin.

So I did this today, and it was a very valuable 30 minutes.  Loved every minute of it.   Titleist is offering virtual golf ball fittings for free.  You get a 30 minute  zoom call with a member from th

Had my conference call with David Bustamante this morning.  Great chat and honestly wish those could happen a little more frequently during the work week! Started off talking about my game, since

Did you ask him for a few hundred dozen of the Left Dot Pro-V1’s...?  Asking for a friend.

I had my fitting and it ended about where I thought it would so nothing earth shaking. He (Drew) encouraged  me staying with the V1 since and try the new or newest AVX as it has more spin than the 1st year model so that is what he is sending me. 

Some small talk and learned a few things about how a pro chooses a ball and what not. It was a overall positive experience and thanks to Titleist.

I think Drew will want a new job once we are all done with him.  Also seems like everyone is getting directed torward the Pro V1 so far. Probably an easy way to get rid of last years model and at the same time recruiting people toward purchasing the new model. Marketing at its best!

If you think the X is too clicky, the left dash is even moreso. In my appt I mentioned I gravitate towards low-spin/high-launch balls with the driver but I also struggle with irons spinning too much. I told him I love the Z Star XV except for one thing: putting. It's very clicky and mentally I just struggle to get the right feel for distance. He told me that ball performance on the putter is basically identical across balls but it's so psychological that on this reason alone, he'd eliminate left dash from contention for me. "It doesn't matter if you hit every green in regulation if you 3-putt half of them."

That's great to know. I'm going into the virtual fitting with an open mind. About three times a year, I think, let's try the VX( I have some left over from a rep, and after about three holes, I'm kindly reminded why I don't like them and it is typically with a wedge in my hand. As we know, putting may me psychological, but it is also sound and perceived feel and I am likely to stick with the Pro V1. Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah the left dash is more clicky compared to the prov1x and sounds like will be even more so with the new Prov1x 

when we talked balls the sound/feel with putter was a large part of our conversation and was another determining factor in recommending i stay with the Prov1 

Again, I am thinking I'm in the same boat, and I hate clicky balls off of the wedges and putter. It messes with my distance control, reality or psychological. Am I a head case?

All golfers are what cases but I would say not really when it comes to the sound/feel of the ball with the putter.

We came back to that concept several times in my fitting. My preference for a softer feel on the greens was probably the checked box that put the Prov1 as my ball

So true, sir! Can’t wait to see what I learn tomorrow.

Had my virtual meeting yesterday. The host was awesome...ND fan like myself so the conversation started off great.  After chatting about which ball i currently play and what my game was like, he was glad to hear the driver was not really a consideration in ball selection.  He said the Tour speed would not benefit me at all and he also compared thier testing data of my curremnt ball (TP5), vs the AVX, Prov1.....their data suggested the TP5 is shorter off the tee because of the spin characteristics and said I should gain a few yards with Prov1 or AVX....but since that was the last factor on our list and it was a "nice to have", we focused on 6 iron and in...the scoring clubs.....at the end of the day, he wants me to try Prov1 and AVX side ny side in putting, chipping and 50 yards and in to see what i like better.....i thought it was an awesome meeting and very nice of Titleist to offer this to all of us.....it was amazing.....

I see similar with the tp5 compare to Prov1. I prefer the tp5x in the TM balls.

the TP5X didnt work for me on any level....not sure why....a lot of people like it but its too firm for my liking and i seem to spray it all over the place.....its probably a mental thing lol

Our minds do funny things. This year I’ve played both tp balls, tour bx, 17&19 versions of the Prov1 and 1x and the left dash.

tp5 was really a hit or miss ball from tee to green, probably the only ball I struggled with putting. The left dash was good but off the tee not enough spin for me.

5x and both years for the titleist balls were my favorites on course. I still have some 19 Prov1 plus the ones the fitter is sending that I’ll end up comparing for the 21 Prov1 this year

I just finished up my meeting with Drew at Titleist. Very helpful and knew what direction to go to give me my best results. Even though I kind of new he would put me in the Pro V1 he said that the new model would be even better for me due to it having a slightly higher launch which is what we were trying to achieve as well as having the spin to stop and not feel hard like the X. They are not available yet but he is sending me a sample pack of the current Pro V1 and a sample of the Tour Speed. He said I might like the AVX but it did have a lower ball flight. I told him I would try them but he didn't have to send me any. I have a dozen in the closet that I won in a tournament last season.

According to testing by TXG, there is a noticeable difference between prior and current (2020) AVX models. They do some good ball testing on youtube if you want to check it out. The 2020 AVX is more similar to Left Dash Pro V1X performance wise.

It's not like I need any balls but I do like to try what comes my way to see if there is anything that stands out. Then I will put in in play when it counts. I get a lot of balls in events that I participate in or from suppliers and such. I haven't purchased golf balls in a very long time.  Below is a photo of 1/2 of my current inventory.  The other half is in my basement. Those are set aside for when I donate sleeves to those less fortunate, First Tee, or anybody that I know that doesn't play well that is looking for balls. I gave three dozen to a co-worker that is just starting to play golf a few weeks ago.
