Titleist have introduced their next generation Tour Speed golf ball two years after the original model was released.
The original Tour Speed was the first Titleist high performance, multilayer golf ball with a Titleist Performance Urethane (TPU) cover, and immediately provided golfers a faster, better performing model in its category.
The reformulated Tour Speed aims to continue that consistent fast speed, penetrating flight, and high short game control golfers have come to trust and expect from the model.
FIRST LOOK: WHAT’S NEW?
The reformulated core aims to deliver high speed, and a proprietary high flex casing layer, has been designed to maintain the low long game spin. The reformulated Tour Speed golf ball maintains its proprietary Titleist Performance Urethane (TPU) cover – specifically formulated by Titleist Golf Ball R&D chemists - and 346 quadrilateral dipyramid dimple design, a combination engineered to generate a penetrating, consistent flight, and optimised greenside spin for short game control.
The result is a combination of speed and spin to help execute any shot, tee through green.
Frederick Waddell, Titleist Director of Product Management, said: “The key to the development process was successfully reformulating the core and high-flex casing layer to perform in conjunction with the proprietary Titleist Performance Urethane (TPU) cover to our stringent quality tolerances, so the golf ball performs consistently on every shot.”
Mike Madson, Titleist Senior Director, Research and Engineering, said: “The Titleist Performance Urethane cover material is innovative and best in class.
“We did maintain the 346 quadrilateral dipyramid dimple pattern based on feedback from the Tour Speed golfer who prefers its penetrating mid-flight trajectory and long distance.”
