What we say...

Titleist’s Tour Soft golf balls feature a new faster and larger core with a reformulated cover delivering quicker ball speeds and improved short game control

Titleist are the brains behind some of the best golf balls on the market, with options for golfers of all abilities.

New for 2024, Titleist’s fourth generation of Tour Soft golf balls will be hoping to continue challenging the best amateur-level golf balls. Despite only being a two-piece construction, Tour Soft golf balls tend to perform much better than the best golf balls for beginners and high-handicappers.

Tour Soft are undoubtedly one of Titleist’s best golf balls because they appeal to a wide range of golfers. They present decent value compared to golf balls of a similar standard, but they aren’t cheap – costing more than £30/$35 per dozen.

If you’ve previously played with Tour Soft golf balls, you might have noticed they do lack greenside performance. However, Titleist have set about rectifying this for 2024.

Titleist Tour Soft 2024 features a new faster, larger core

Key tech

New faster, larger core

The new faster, larger core in the 2024 Tour Soft helps to deliver faster ball speed and reduces spin in the long game, which in turn increases distance. The new and improved core also contributes to the fantastic soft feel.

Reformulated thin fusablend cover

In order to improve short-game performance in the new Tour Soft golf balls, Titleist have introduced a reformulated thin fusablend cover. This new cover provides more dependable greenside spin for brilliant short-game control.

Offering an efficient aerodynamic package thanks to the 346 quadrilateral dipyramid dimple design the Tour Soft flies at an optimal ball flight to generate longer distance.

What Titleist say about the Tour Soft

Mike Madson, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball R&D

“What makes new Tour Soft unique is the size of its core, which gives the ball even more of its fastest material and allows for exceptional speed in the long game.

“The core is the engine of the golf ball, and that’s where a ball gets its speed.

“Then when you get into your scoring clubs, Tour Soft’s Fusablend cover over that large core gives golfers the spin needed to hit it closer to the hole.

“Manufacturing a 1.608″ core is not an easy task, but the advantages it delivers to golfers in on-course performance is tremendous.

“We’re only able to produce a core that large because of our manufacturing expertise. We have total control over all our processes, which allows us to make the advancements needed to create a core at that size that performs the same from ball to ball and dozen to dozen.”

Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing

“Golfers who tee up Tour Soft are looking for soft feel and performance throughout the bag.

“Every change we made to new Tour Soft gives players a better golf ball from tee to green.” 

Which Titleist golf ball should I play?

Titleist have eight golf balls to choose from, all suited to particular golfers. Whether you enjoy playing with the best premium golf balls or the best distance golf balls the golf giants have you covered.

If you want to play with the No.1 ball in golf, then look no further than the Titleist Pro V1. There are three models of the Pro V1 (Pro V1, Pro V1x, and Pro V1 Left Dash) and they all have slightly different properties. Another golf ball in Titleist’s premium range is the AVX which has a lower compression.

Titleist offers two brilliant amateur-level golf balls – Tour Speed and Tour Soft. These golf balls are brilliant for those who don’t quite have the swing speed to play with premium golf balls or want to spend over £4/$4 but enjoy the feel and performance.

There are two Titleist golf balls to pick from in the beginner to high handicap category of golf balls – TruFeel or Velocity. Both offer outstanding distance and brilliant value for money. TruFeel boasts fantastic feel for a cheap golf ball.

Titleist Tour Soft golf balls are available in three color options - white, yellow, and green

Titleist Tour Soft availability

You’ll be able to get your hands on the white, yellow, and green Tour Soft golf balls from January 24 in most parts of the world.
