This is probably truly a case of saving the best for last, or well maybe near the last.  No surprises here, but it's always nice to know that a company that touts quality is living up to it.

Obviously someone is getting paid under the table to push Titleist golf balls!

There, now that's out of the way as a crazed response, here's the takeaway I have. Titleist does what they say they're going to do. If you are looking for a consistent ball and one of them happen to be the best fit for what you're looking for in a ball, congrats and know you're going to going to get a quality ball across the board. I also think we need to maybe have a non-Titleist award for some companies because it's clear there's levels to this game and Titleist is just above everyone else at the minute.

Like, it seems that way Rob, a Titleist division and a not Titleist division, and this is not a slam on other companies, it just seems like the process by the boys in Massachusetts just dwarfs for consistency any other company.

Yep, and truly not trying to hype them here, but the fact that nearly 80% of all pro tour players play their ball, says something, and I don't want to hear--not from you but the critics--that it's pay to play doing that.    It really isn't  they are by far the top choice of non contracted players playing their ball and it's more than the others combined.   When you are at that level, and heck any level you want to be confident the ball you are playing is round and not defective inside.   it's simple as that.

I saw Tony's tweet yesterday about how Titleist and Foremost are running away with the Ball Lab results for quality. I really want to make a comment about how 'if Tour players are ok playing lower-quality balls, then it must be good enough for me,' but I know that the Tour player shipments are getting extra inspection. For example, and apologies that I can't pull the source anymore because it disappears after 24 hours, but Srixon re-posted a story on Instagram that showed boxes and boxes of Z-Star XVs that were all stamped "Tour Inspected," so presumably they're not going to get the same percentage of "bad" balls that Tony is finding. 

I love the XV and I love the MTB-X, but I can't help but wonder if the consistency in my game of late is because I was given a couple dozen ProV1x balls and I really just haven't had any squirrely shots, other than the ones I know I mis-hit. (Or am I just in a stretch of playing well and I wouldn't have any issue with XVs either? Who knows...)

Good shots are you,  Bad Shots are the club or balls.  I've gone with that theory for several years 🙂

See Greg, that's kind of where I am in my search to compare the Ball Lab Data with my game and what I need. Like V1X just works and I'd love to try the Wilson Staff Model as that ball appears to be pretty similar and even a little higher spinning which for me is a Yahtzee as a low spin player... but then I think about consistency and that there really isn't a difference in price between them to force me away from V1X. They just make an all around solid ball and when you factor in the buy 3 get 1 special that gets cost down to 37.50 a box, it's hard to say no.

There’s a reason Titleist maintains a death grip on the "No. 1 ball in golf" title year after year after year: Its products perform. Best of all, the company continually pushes the innovation envelope. The ProV1 is all that it’s cracked up to be, delivering top-notch distance, playability and greenside spin.🎤

I wonder if Rory will move back to a Titleist ball at some point.    His comments about the older prov1's in the wind are no longer accurate

Considering he selected TM based on ball and club combo performance I doubt it, also he’s under contract to play the ball, doubt he breaks that.

Until someone can quantify ("bad") ball performance with SG data, there is no motivation to change for Tour Pros who often get balls that have additional QC checks or special edition balls. Pro V's haven't won any majors over the past 2 years... Koepka and Woodland in 2019 and Reed in 18 are the most recent examples examples.

7 wins including the tour championship and the players with Tm in the bag. Contract money plus on course earning have him doing pretty well.
