THE TITLEIST PRO V1 & PRO V1x have been redone for 2021. Titleist.com

Titleist that calls itself the #1 ball in golf, has re-engineered the famed Pro V1 and Pro V1x for 2021.

But where does this take place. It’s called Ball Plant 3, and now Titleist is giving you a virtual tour of the Massachusetts facility at Titleist.com/BP3-virtual.

So what the virtual tour brings the viewer, is the tour that visitors get when they visit Ball Plant 3. Titleist plans on resuming the in person plant tours as soon as it’s safe again to do so.

“Since we began giving tours, we’ve had golfers from around the world come to see how Pro V1 and Pro V1x are made,” said Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “So while we look forward to the day that we can safely welcome back visitors to Ball Plant 3, we’re excited that golfers everywhere now have the opportunity to go behind the scenes of our process, learn how their golf ball is made from core to cover, and see everything our R&D and Operations teams are doing to earn their trust on every single shot.”

Several top players on staff with Titleist have gone to visit the plant and take a tour.

They include Adam Scott, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson.

But while all of the players shared different thoughts on what they took away from the tour. What amazed them the most was the process and commitment that Titleist commits to when making the golf ball. Because the process that started in the 1930’s when avid golfer Phil Young decided to build the best golf ball possible, has become the standard that Titleist lives by today.

So in the meantime, Titleist invites you to enjoy the tour, virtual style. But learn more about Titleist products at Titleist.com.
