Titleist Launches Virtual Tour of Pro V1 Manufacturing Process
New Titleist.com Experience Takes Golfers Behind the Scenes of Titleist Ball
The manufacturing process for the new Titleist
2021 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls is now on display for golfers around the
world through the Titleist Ball Plant Virtual Tour on Titleist.com.
Available on mobile and desktop devices at:
the virtual tour takes golfers through every step of
the manufacturing journey for Pro V1 and Pro V1x, exhibiting how each layer
comes together to deliver the best performing, most consistent and highest
quality golf balls in the game.
“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,” said Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball
In recent years, many of the world’s best players have experienced the
manufacturing process in person, including major champions Adam Scott, Justin
Thomas, Webb Simpson, Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson:
• Adam Scott: “I think the most surprising thing I took away from touring the
plant is how tight the tolerance levels are in making the golf ball and how
strenuous the checks are to make sure there is very little variation ball to
ball. For someone whose livelihood and dreams depend on it, it's nice to see how
dedicated Titleist is to providing you with the same ball every time out of the
• Justin Thomas: “Seeing the process up close gave me even more confidence than
I already had in my golf ball. I always trust my go-to cut shot – that’s a shot
I’m very comfortable and most consistent with distance-control wise – and you
see why I’m able to have so much confidence in it when you go through the plant.
The process just to make one single golf ball and then see how it’s made the
exact same, thousands and thousands of times more, it just was extremely
• Webb Simpson: “I had no idea how much went into the process. And it was great
to meet the people who are making what you rely on week in, week out for your
job. I walked away feeling even more confident knowing that at every station,
every person’s job was super important to them and they were going to do it to
the best of their ability.”
• Jordan Spieth: “There’s a reason why Titleist has the #1 ball in golf and it
has been for decades. There’s just an extra level of precision that leads to us
players trusting it. It leads to the amateurs trusting their golf ball. Just
knowing what goes into it on Titleist's side only solidifies that confidence.”
COMMITMENT TO THE PROCESS
It was in the 1930’s that Titleist founder Phil Young – frustrated with the
inconsistent performance of the golf balls he was playing, and not being
rewarded for his best swings – set out to make the best golf balls in the world.
Young, an avid golfer and owner of a precision molded rubber company, was fueled
by the belief and understanding that the performance and quality of a product
can only be as good as its manufacturing process – and that golfers should never
have to worry how their golf ball is going to perform when they put a good swing
It is this enduring commitment to the process – and helping golfers shoot their
lowest scores – that continually pushes Titleist’s exacting performance and
quality specifications to even tighter tolerances. Even the slightest variations
in golf ball construction can have dramatic performance implications, for
• If a golf ball core is just 4/100ths of an inch off-center – about the
thickness of a credit card – shot dispersion for every club in your bag can
• A golf ball with uneven dimple depths – off by as little as the width of a
human hair – can turn a good swing into a bad shot, and cause the ball to fly

MANUFACTURING AT TITLEIST BALL PLANTS 3 AND 4
Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls –
the most played and best-selling golf balls around the world – are made at both
Titleist Ball Plant 3 (New Bedford, Mass.) and Titleist Ball Plant 4 (Thailand).
The manufacturing and quality assurance processes seen during the Virtual Tour
are the exact same ones used at both facilities, ensuring that every Pro V1 and
Pro V1x golf ball delivers consistent performance in every dozen – and on every
shot. Every Titleist golf ball model is made by Titleist associates in Titleist
owned and operated manufacturing facilities.
VIRTUAL BP3 TOUR GUIDE
The Virtual Ball Plant 3 Tour is guided by Iona Stephen,
host of Golf TV's “Golfing World,” and a broadcaster for Sky Sports Golf.
Stephen, who has played professionally on the Ladies European Tour, toured
Titleist Ball Plant 3 in October 2019.
“I’ve always played a Titleist golf ball because I believed it was the best, but
I never could have imagined the scope of the process or level of precision that
goes into making each and every golf ball,” Stephen said. “The passion and the
commitment of the people – many who’ve worked at BP3 for over 20 or 30 years –
is something that I’ll never forget.”
