Jordan Spieth puts 2021 Titleist Pro V1x in play

Published

on

Equipment changes are the norm on the PGA Tour, but when it comes to the golf ball, Spieth has been very particular in recent years — which makes his switch up at this week’s Byron Nelson all the more interesting.

The Texan has been using the same 2017 Titleist model since its launch (technically, since the 2016 Australian Open, which he won), but per our tour photographer, a Titleist golf ball rep revealed that Spieth has switched to the new Titleist Pro V1x ball this week.

Spieth’s caddie Michael Greller confirmed the news of the switch with the photo below.

Here’s what a couple of our members have been saying, with the news that Spieth is only switching for the first time in 5 years coming as a surprise to some.

  • Bentron: “Wait so Jordan has been playing the 2015 pro v1x all this time?”
  • TheEldrickWand: “Seems like a weird time to be switching after the last month or so of being dialed in. I know it’s gotta be v similar, but Spieth just strikes me as a guy who would notice incredibly minute details and feels with his gear.”

Check out the full discussion on the switch here.

In our forums, our members have been displaying their first ever driver. WRXer ‘Mackepa’ wants to know what driver fellow members learned the sport with, who himself began with a Callaway Little Bertha 5 club set.

Our members have been sharing photos of their first driver and how they feel about the club today.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mogc60: “Hogan Speedslot persimmon. Had the 2 and 4 wood as well. My grandpa insisted I start playing golf at 15, and he gave me these.”
  • scooterhd2: “Still gaming my first driver (above photo). I’ve cheated on it a few times but keep going back to it. Worn grip, epoxy rattle, and all. Just goes straight for me.”
  • electroleum: “The first driver I had with a proper set of golf clubs was a MacGregor Dx Power Pyramid driver. Had the full matching set.”
  • jwhite86: “My first real driver was a Taylor Made 360… bought it right after the 500 series came out… let a friend try it at the range, and it immediately got a sky mark…”
