Titleist's new Pro V1 balls debut at Kapalua
According to a release sent by Titleist on Friday evening, 20 players in the 30-man field at the Mercedes-Benz Championship are using a Titleist golf ball. Ten of those players are using the new Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x that will be in pro shops in February.
Players using the new Pro V1 are Adam Scott, Camilo Villegas, Chez Reavie, Richard S. Johnson and Ryan Palmer.
The players who are teeing up the new version of the Pro V1x are Andres Romero, Davis Love III (right), Greg Kraft, J.B. Holmes and Kenny Perry.
Acushnet, the parent company of Titleist, recently initiated a program to help golf retailers exchange Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls that were manufactured with the technology at the heart of Callaway's patent lawsuit against the company.
