Proving It: Short Game Testing with Justin Thomas

Ever wonder how a PGA Tour player chooses the right Titleist golf ball for his game? On Tour, with so much at stake, a player’s confidence in his golf ball has got to be 100% bullet-proof. Reaching that level of comfort requires a committed team effort, as players work side by side with the Titleist R&D team to evaluate every shot in a player’s bag and every playing condition imaginable.

Join Team Titleist as we tag along for a recent golf ball testing session with one of the game's brightest stars, Justin Thomas, and see how he put the New 2019 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls to the test at his home course, The Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Florida.

In our first of five installments, Justin begins the day with some detailed green-side experimentation. With the help of his father and coach, PGA Professional Mike Thomas and Titleist Tour Consultant for Golf Ball Performance, Fordie Pitts, Justin evaluates how the 2019 Pro V1 and Pro V1x feel, fly, spin and react on the green when he plays the precise chips and pitch shots that he’ll need to count on in every round in 2019.
