I just got back from my ball fitting this morning. It was a lot of fun and I really appreciated the Titleist reps that were there, they were awesome. I'm terrible with names, so I forgot all three already. For any of the FJ/Titleist staffers that look at this thread, your people were professional, took extra time with me, helped me assess the right ball for me, and were generous. Time and again, Titleist and Foot Joy proves it's the best in the game for a reason.
After letting me warm up and while they finished setting up the trackman, they had me start with 50 yard wedge shots, hitting Pro V1s. They noticed that I had a full bag of Titleist irons (AP1s), 913D2, 913FD, Vokey wedge, and Team Titleist bag tag. It didn't hurt that I was also wearing all FJ gear too. When you love a brand, you stick with it.
They asked what ball I was using and why. My response was "Pro V1x and because it's the best ball made." He liked my answer. After the wedge shots, we moved to the 6 iron. He asked where I tended to miss the ball and analyzed my ball flight. Then it was on to the driver to hit some more shots.
After that, we reviewed all the numbers. My wedge and 6 iron spin, ball speed, and landing angle were good, although my trajectory with the 6 was a little low with the Pro V1. With the driver, my spin rate was way too high, but that's something I've been struggling with lately, so I wasn't surprised. He asked me a few more questions about how I liked the Pro V1x and how I liked it with the putter. By the way, they had Titleist tees to use, which was cool too.
The final recommendation wasn't a big surprise, which was the Pro V1x.
He added since I was TT member if I wanted free stuff. He gave me a handful of the Titleist tees and a half dozen Pro V1x. I can't complain about that at all. All in all, a great half hour spent, a lot of fun, and I learned a bit more about my game. If you have the opportunity to do a ball fitting even like this, I would highly recommend it.
One thing I did learn separate of the balls, was I commented on the Titleist tour patch he had on his FJ performance lined sweater. "Yeah, those are going away soon," was his response. I was very surprised to hear that.
