New Titleist Velocity golf balls have been released which have been designed to give golfers increased speed, high flight and importantly for some, long distance.
Engineered with a new higher compression core and reformulated cover combination the golf ball manufacturing giants says it delivers the longest, best performing Velocity yet.
Frederick Waddell, Titleist Director of Golf Ball Product Management, said: “This golf ball is fun for our team. We‘re designing for a golfer looking for distance, and that allows us to be singularly focused on speed and overall distance through the bag.
“We were able to achieve the performance goals of longer driver and iron distance while maintaining its high flight and greenside playability through new and reformulated core and cover technology.”
In golf shops worldwide beginning 4 February 2022, the new Velocity will be available in White only until October when golfers can experience the speed of Velocity in style with three distinct matte color options - Matte Orange, Matte Green, and new Matte Blue.
Mike Madson, Titleist Director of Aerodynamics and Research Engineering, said: “We take the same principles and fundamentals that we utilize in the Pro V1 and AVX and apply them to Velocity.
“It is a matter of balancing the components to achieve the goals for Velocity of increased overall distance and improved greenside spin. In this case we developed a higher compression core and complemented that with a new cover formulation. The combination of those two factors helped us meet and exceed the expectations we had for this product.”
