Justin Thomas Tests ALL-NEW Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x

In early December of 2020, the final iterations of the new Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls were ready for player testing. Justin met with Titleist Tour Consultant for Golf Ball R&D, Fordie Pitts, for a full day of testing on his home course in Florida. They hit every shot with every club, and ultimately, Justin put the new X into play the very next week at Mayakoba, and then went on to win THE PLAYERS, playing the final 36 holes at TPC Sawgrass in 12-under.

Check out the video above to see some highlights of Justin’s testing process. This examination proved to Justin that the new Pro V1x provides all that he’s been looking for. And more.

1 – JT loved the increased spin that the new Pro V1x gave him around the greens

2 – New Pro V1x gave Justin higher trajectory throughout the bag
(The new 348-dimple design created for the 2021 Pro V1x results in slightly higher launch and steeper angle of descent for greater stopping power on approach shots)

3 – Justin enjoyed the added distance he experienced with new Pro V1x

Thomas’ weekend rounds of 64-68 tied the lowest closing 36-hole score in tournament history. No player has ever gained more strokes tee-to-green (11.18) over the weekend at THE PLAYERS since ShotLink tracking began in 2004, as Thomas matched the tournament’s largest 36-hole comeback victory (7 shots).

He became the first PLAYERS champion in 21 years to hit 17 greens in regulation in the final round, finishing fifth for the week in Strokes Gained: Approach. “Probably one of the best rounds of my life tee to green, I had total control of the ball,” he said.

Thomas, who made 21 birdies and two eagles over the four days, has now made a TOUR-best 121 birdies-or-better at TPC Sawgrass since 2015.
