Golf balls are an incredibly personal part of your game. Think about it, It’s the one piece of equipment your eyes are always fixed on from tee to green.

By and large, you can tell if you’ve pulled off a good shot or not just from the feel of the impact when you hit the ball.

There are good golfers, golfers wanting to get better at the game, and golf balls for players of both categories. If you’re a consistent single figure handicap player, you’ll be taking advantage of all the latest premium balls have to offer. But if you’re looking to lower your handicap, the confidence-inspiring soft feel of game-improvement balls will help you get achieve your goals.

One golf ball trend that we’re currently seeing dominate the market is the use of colourful visual tech balls. These balls can come in a variety of colours, from red, to blue, to green. Titleist makes incredible golf balls that use this technology, such as the Velocity. So why should you play with a ball that makes use of modern visual tech?


The colourful aesthetic


One of the first things you’ll notice when you initially take in the Velocity golf balls is how colourful they are.

The ball comes in a variety of colour options, including orange and yellow. You may have never seen a golf ball quite like this before, but there’s a reason for the design besides novelty.

First of all, the golf ball has been given a matte finish. This essentially means that the colourful surface isn’t shiny. This eliminates sun glare and makes it easy to spot when it’s down the fairway.

To some people, white is seen as negative space and causes the ball to look more 2D than it really is. A yellow or orange counterpart is a very assertive colour and tends to give many players more confidence when they’re addressing the ball.

The Velocity balls have a 350 octahedral dimple design that helps keep your ball flight high and straight. It also has a high-speed core that will let you pack plenty of power behind your drives. If you’d like to gain some distance in your game these balls will do the trick!

Another fantastic Titleist ball that makes use of high optic colour is the TruFeel. As the name implies, this ball has been engineered to give you absolute feel and control around the greens. With a core that boosts your distance and an outer layer that retains phenomenal grip and feel, this is a superb golf ball if you’re looking to improve your game. You can pick up this ball in stunning yellow and red colour variations.


Classic white balls


Titleist has a fantastic range of traditional white golf balls if that’s your preference, and you really can’t go wrong with the renowned Pro V1 balls.

There’s a reason this golf ball is favoured by so many tour professionals. The Pro V1 has a high gradient core that lowers your long game spin for longer distance. The 388 dimple design will give you long and satisfying ball flights, and the soft urethane cover ensures you’ll be placing just the right amount of spin on your wedge shots.

If you’ve ever wondered what’s the difference between the Pro V1 and the Pro V1x, the latter has been designed to raise your ball flights if you have a natural tendency to hit the ball quite low.

Not unlike the Pro V1, the Pro V1x also features a urethane cover that will raise your confidence in your short game. Giving you absolute control from tee to green, the Pro V1x is an exceptional golf ball.

While both of these balls are excellent in their own ways, Titleist’s AVX is not to be overlooked. With 348 dimples, the surface area feels slightly larger than playing with a Pro V1, and will give you more confidence when you’re standing over the ball.

All of these golf balls also inject some personality into your golf game. It can get a bit monotonous at times always playing with your go-to golf ball, so why not tee up something that looks and feels a little bit more special?
