I was playing golf with my buddy Travis last weekend and he realized that he was out of golf balls so he picked up a sleeve of the new Titleist Velocity two piece distance balls. He really liked them as much as I liked the Callaway Hex Blacks I reviewed in my prior post. By the seventh hole I tossed him a Callaway and he tossed me a Titleist. I didnt get to try it out until our weekly league, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The ball is soft and it really flies off the club face. What you would expect from a ball named Velocity is distance, but what you get is distance and pretty nice feel around the greens.
My favorite shot was a 6 iron into about a 10 mile per hour headwind and it held its line, didn’t balloon and I ended up on the back apron 170 yards away. Yup they are long!
They do launch high and you won’t win any backspin contests, but they are not rocks. If you like easy distance and a nice soft feel off your wedges at a reasonable price, the Titleist Velocity is a great choice.
