Titleist, recognised worldwide as the most popular golf ball manufacturer for both professionals and amateurs alike, have added a new Tour Speed model to their collection for 2020 following years of product development.
The Tour Speed, a three-piece ball with a urethane cover, is said to be the fastest and best-performing in its category and comes as a result of precision manufacturing and extensive amateur testing.
2020 Tour Speed Technology:
A new high-speed core combines with a fast ionomer casing layer to provide increased ball speed, and low spin in the long game to produce category-leading distance.
According to Titleist testing, the Tour Speed is faster and longer than competitors including Callaway Chrome Soft, Srixon Z Star, TaylorMade Tour Response and Bridgestone Tour B RX.
R&D chemists have created a new thermoplastic urethane (TPU) cover for the Tour speed which is engineered to generate high greenside spin with soft feel, for ultimate short game control.
The Tour Speed gets its distance thanks to a new 346 quadrilateral dipyramid dimple design, which provides a penetrating flight for long distance with a tight dispersion.
Michael Mahoney, Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing at Titleist, commented:
"Golfers can trust that when they tee up a Titleist, they are getting superior performance and quality versus the competition. Our golf ball scientists and engineers have gone to extraordinary lengths in the development of Tour Speed - testing numerous core formulations and aerodynamic patterns, while formulating and analysing hundreds of TPU cover blends - to deliver on that promise. We have made every investment necessary in these new technologies, including a significant expansion of our manufacturing facility and process."
Along with Titleist's robot testing, the Tour Speed has also been validated thanks to rounds of comprehensive amateur testing including the use of a prototype ball in the US and Canada.
The new Titleist Tour Speed ball is available from September 11th and will be priced at an SRP of £40 per dozen.
If all of this has got you confused as to which golf ball would suit you best - and we wouldn't blame you if so - then it's always preferable to get a proper ball fitting which will analyse the numbers you produce and recommend the best type of golf ball to fit your game.
