FROM TITLEIST
The continued pursuit of breakthrough technology and performance by Titleist golf ball engineers has resulted in the all-new Titleist Tour Soft golf balls.

For golfers demanding better feel, the invention of Titleist Tour Soft – the softest-feeling golf ball in its category – delivers a better performance experience. Tour Soft’s innovative design combines the largest core ever engineered into a Titleist golf ball with ultra-thin cover technology to provide responsive feel, very fast speed for commanding distance and excellent short game performance.

“We knew based on breakthroughs being made in R&D that there was an opportunity to deliver a brand new high performance golf ball that would lead the category in terms of soft compression feel,” said Michael Mahoney, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing.“Ultimately, because of our exhaustive and iterative prototyping process, we were able to deliver everything we wanted in Tour Soft – and more. It’s not only the softest ball in the category. It’s better and longer than Chrome Soft, TP5 and Tour B RXS.”

NEW TITLEIST TOUR SOFT: EXPERIENCE BETTER PERFORMANCE. EXPERIENCE BETTER FEEL.
  • The largest Titleist core ever produces category-leading soft feel and high ball speed for commanding distance. In developing Tour Soft’s core, the Titleist Golf Ball R&D and Operations teams were challenged to surpass previously accepted core size limitations in order to produce a golf ball that feels better and is as long or longer than the competition.
  • A new ultra-thin 4CE grafted cover made with TCU Process Technology generates advanced short game control. Innovations in the manufacturing process at Titleist Ball Plant 2 in Massachusetts allowed engineers to mold the extremely thin, very soft cover formulation – made from a proprietary blend of four different materials – uniformly across the surface.
  • A new spherically-tiled 342 cuboctahedron dimple design, optimized for the new Tour Soft construction, delivers a penetrating trajectory and consistent flight.
  • Tour Soft is available in both white and high-optic yellow.
  • On the web: https://www.titleist...balls/tour-soft
THE TESTERS
  • 30 members (yes that's right) will be chosen to receive 1 dozen Titleist Tour Soft of their choice (white and/or high-optic yellow)

  • I'll be able to start testing in the next 3 weeks
  • Yes
  • I would begin by testing the ball with driver on my SkyTrak. If the spin and ball speeds numbers look good there, I would move on to testing full, partial and pitched wedges to check spin and trajectory. The final stage of testing would be on course chipping to see how the ball reacts on the greens. An X factor is the feel and sound with the putter.

Not really, but I work at a golf course as a 2nd job, so whenever its nice out, I head out to the course shoot around and practice for summer. I also have a practice putting green in my basement

Briefly describe how your would test in 200 words or less.  Feel is important, would use open short game practice areas for putting and chipping, up to full wedge shots. Into the simulator for long clubs noting feel and distance and spin against my gamer. For the odd 60* day, out to the course for side by side comparisons.

I can use a sim to get to compare yardage’s, then go outside and play two balls around the course. Also use it on the short game range to see how it reacts around te teens.

Briefly describe how your would test in 200 words or less: I would put these through a fell review. I review balls by testing chipping and putting first in our practice area. From there I would take them on course and hit them side by side with my current gamer ball. I would test for durability as well. I would provide pictures from all testing.

Thanks Titleist, great opportunity and I have been looking forward to this ball coming out.

1.  I am in Fredericksburg Virginia
2.  I carry (and sometimes it is a heavy load) a 7.8 handicap
3.  I have only had the opportunity to test once, I was selected to test the Adidas Ultimate Short a few years ago - Had a great time posting and responding to the few questions I got
4.  In the winter I have been playing a Snell MTB, during peak season I play Prov1x
5.  I am definitely a white ball kinda guy
6.  I play all year the weather in Fredericksburg is normally mild and when it's bad we had an hour or south to Williamsburg to play.  I play on the Golf Channel Am Tour and I have Tournaments scheduled starting 10 March.  There will be no trouble putting the balls in play.
7.  The camera is ready, and my keyboard awaits
8.  When I try something new I like to compare so during my normal weekend rounds on top of having the ball in play I would hit multiple balls for comparison on a variety of shots.  I would also put the ball in play during a tournament round if possible.  I have three areas that are most important to me with golf balls they are 1. Ball Flight, 2. Spin, 3. Feel  It's very hard to find a ball that has all three right were I would like it to be, normally there is a compromise in at least one area.  The goal is to find a ball that has the least amount of compromise.  


Cheers,
Jeff

  • Location (City, State) St. Petersburg, FL
  • Handicap - 9
  • Have you tested equipment for GolfWRX before?  If yes, please describe. Yes. 2017 TaylorMade M1, Kuro Kage Dual Core, Putt Out.
  • What ball do you currently play? ProV1
  • Which color would you prefer to test: White, High-Optic Yellow or Both (2 sleeves white, 2 yellow) Both
  • Since it's still winter, are you in an area where you can do on-course reviews? Yes, I play weekly and also have a SkyTrak for ball data.
  • Do you agree to be part of a GolfWRX Member review thread for Titleist Tour Soft golf balls and add you review, photos, stories and updates? Of course!
  • Briefly describe how your would test in 200 words or less. My weekly routine is hitting the range on Wednesday, hitting balls on SkyTrak and playing once a week. I would be able to provide comparative SkyTrak data to share with the community. I will also test around the practice green to see how the ball reacts on different types of chip shots and how it feels off the putter. Lastly, I will share the most important aspect of the review, how it plays on course, durability, ability to play in the wind etc. I prefer a soft ball and this just might be the one!

  • Do you agree to be part of a GolfWRX Member review thread for Titleist Tour Soft golf balls and add you review, photos, stories and updates? Absolutely!
  • Briefly describe how your would test in 200 words or less.- I would set up a skytrak system to record all shots with my current balls and the Tour soft. From the drives I would be able to compare the spin numbers of the balls. Once in the fairway I will take the same 9 shots from 160-170 area to see how the ball reacts when it hits the green. I would then take all 9 shots to about 20 yards out and chip to see how the ball spins and catches on the green surface. Putting would be the same process from about 15 feet to get a feel of each ball off the club face.

  • Location (City, State):  Buffalo, NY
  • Handicap:  11
  • Have you tested equipment for GolfWRX before?  If yes, please describe.:  Yes, TaylorMade M2 irons
  • What ball do you currently play?:  Titleist ProV1x
  • Which color would you prefer to test: White, High-Optic Yellow or Both (2 sleeves white, 2 yellow):  White
  • Since it's still winter, are you in an area where you can do on-course reviews?:  Yes
  • Do you agree to be part of a GolfWRX Member review thread for Titleist Tour Soft golf balls and add you review, photos, stories and updates?:  Yes
  • Briefly describe how your would test in 200 words or less.:  I would compare this ball to several similar balls (Q-Star Tour, Chrome Soft, B-330, etc) and also against other Titleist offerings.  My swing speed is ~100 so (I would assume) I'm in the target market for this this ball so I would be looking to see extra distance along with tour level performance around the greens.  I also have access to a SkyTrak so I'd be able to reference specific numbers in my analysis though I would weight my review more towards on-course performance.

  • Location (City, State): Chapel Hill, NC
  • Handicap 9.3
  • Have you tested equipment for GolfWRX before?  If yes, please describe. No
  • What ball do you currently play? TP5X

  • Briefly describe how your would test in 200 words or less.

My club has a complete practice facility, so I can evaluate the Tour Soft both on the range for a full variety of short shots (bunker shots, pitches, and chips) and putts. I also play golf on average two times per week, so I can give the ball a comprehensive on course test within the offer period. I will test it against my current ball, the TP5X, as well as other premium balls. My course has relatively little play during the week, so I can often play holes with multiple balls for additional data.

Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Have you tested equipment for GolfWRX before?  If yes, please describe.-I have not, but I am looking forward to an opportunity to do so.
  • What ball do you currently play? -Currently playing Taylormade Tour Preferred's as I stocked up last summer. I also play Pro-V1X's regularly
  • Which color would you prefer to test: White, High-Optic Yellow or Both (2 sleeves white, 2 yellow)- I would prefer white
  • Since it's still winter, are you in an area where you can do on-course reviews- My home course will be open for play on 3/15 so I will be able to do an on course review starting on 3/15. In the meantime, I can most likely find a public course around that is open on a weekend afternoon if necessary.
  • Do you agree to be part of a GolfWRX Member review thread for Titleist Tour Soft golf balls and add you review, photos, stories and updates?- Yes, absolutely
  • Briefly describe how your would test in 200 words or less. - I would most likely play 2balls off each tee, 1 with the TourSoft and 1 with my regular ball (TM Tour Preferred). I would also probably drop a few in a different lies around each green (time permitting) and hit some wedge shots and putts to get a feel for how the ball performs in many different lies and playing conditions.

  • I sure hope so.
  • If chosen yes I do
  • Testing would be done by putting on my putting green indoors, putting on putting greens before rounds and of course testing on course for which there is no substitute. Attention would be paid to ball flight, distance, feel and performance around the greens.

  • Briefly describe how your would test in 200 words or less. I would work in the practice area first to compare to current gamer to see how it reacts off of wedges and the putter.  I would then plan to do on course testing vs. current gamer (play 2 balls per hole).  Based on what I have read, it sounds as though this is meant to compete with the Chrome Soft.  I have been playing that ball for sometime, so I would be able to provide detailed feedback on how they compare.
