ARMCHAIR GOLF caught up with the Titleist Pro V1 during a break at a recent photo shoot. Here’s what the No. 1 ball in golf said about itself, the players and more.
Q: Can you tell a little bit about yourself?
TITLEIST PRO V1: Love to. I’m a Urethane Elastomer™ covered 3-piece multi-component golf ball featuring enhanced aerodynamics with slightly higher flight for longer distance, soft feel and Drop-and-Stop™ control.
Q: Is that it?
TITLEIST PRO V1: I’m designed for serious golfers of all levels that demand Tour-validated technology and performance. I provide long and consistent distance with the driver and long irons, while maintaining a soft feel and high performance into and around the green.
Q: OK, thanks. Nice job. So, do you ever get tired of all the promotional work, photo shoots, tournaments and other events?
TITLEIST PRO V1: It goes with the territory. When you’re No. 1, expectations are extremely high. I always have to be on my game and perform at the highest level. I’m up to it, friend. I’m the Titleist Pro V1, the No. 1 ball in golf. Everyone plays me.
Q: Well, not everyone. Tiger doesn’t.
TITLEIST PRO V1: Next question.
Q: Do you ever think you go too far?
TITLEIST PRO V1: Excuse me?
TITLEIST PRO V1: Oh, the distance question. No, man. The powers that be decide that stuff. And the players. They hit the living crap out of me. There’s nothing like leaving the tee at 180 m.p.h. and flying 340 yards. What a ride! It makes my Urethane Elastomer™ cover tingle just thinking about it.
Q: If you were a player, how would you mark you?
TITLEIST PRO V1: Huh?
Q: If you were a player, how would you mark your Titleist?
TITLEIST PRO V1: Got it. Don’t you love that commercial? All the players talking about me and how they mark me. It’s so cool! I have to go with David Toms, though. I like his answer best. A “T” above the “T.”
Q: Who are your favorite players?
TITLEIST PRO V1: All the guys that play me.
Q: Do you have to say that?
TITLEIST PRO V1: Yeah, it’s in my contract.
Q: Thanks for taking the time.
TITLEIST PRO V1: You got it.
