I’ve tried them all: Vice, Bridgestone, Callaway, Noodle and Taylormade, and keep coming back to the #1 ball in golf. Comfort is critical to making good golf swings and hitting solid putts. It’s important to believe in your equipment. We’ve all had that club that feels good in our hands and consistently hit it well. Some people even rely on particular ball markers or divot tools. Whatever it takes to feel good and play well — golfers will do it.
Perhaps nothing is more important than the ball. We switch clubs regularly, but the ball is constant. For me, the Titleist logo looks good and I believe in it. If there is any problem at all with the Titleist ProV, it’s the price which is around $50 a dozen. I like the ProV because it feels good, it checks on greens, it comes off the putter nicely, it feels good off the driver and around the greens.
For the ProV lovers looking to save a few bucks — here’s a ball to try. The new Titleist TruFeel golf ball is engineered to deliver longer distance and control. Titleist calls it their softest-feeling ball.
Now available in golf shops worldwide, Titleist TruFeel has been reimagined with a new TruTouch core and new TruFit aerodynamics for more distance with the driver and in the long game. A proprietary TruFlex cover provides ultra-soft feel and excellent control on shots into and around the green.
For golfers who prefer a very soft compression feel, Titleist TruFeel improves upon the prior generation DT TruSoft as the best performing golf ball in its class, offering a superior combination of soft feel, longer distance and short game control.
“We know from our extensive player testing that golfers who gravitate toward the softest-feeling golf balls are also clearly focused on performance,” said Michael Mahoney, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “In this category, we continue to see competitive products that sacrifice distance or short-game spin in order to gain a softer feel. TruFeel strikes the perfect balance of extremely soft feel and all-around performance. Our engineers have advanced TruFeel’s low compression technology to add speed and distance in the long game while preserving the feel that golfers tell us they love – and the playability on every shot that makes this ball a Titleist.”
The TruFeel is available in White and Optic Yellow, with a new Matte Red color option to be added in January 2020. The new TruFeel sidestamp has been designed to double as an alignment aid. It retails for $22.99 a dozen.
