The Titleist® brand is one of the biggest names in the golf game because of their unwavering commitment to continuous improvement. Performance and quality excellence are core values of the Titleist tradition. For the past 30+ years, the Titleist® brand has been played by the majority of professional players on the U.S. PGA tour and more than all other golf balls combined.
History and an X-Ray
One Sunday in 1930, Phil Young, a dedicated amateur golfer and owner of a precision molded rubber company missed a well-stroked putt. Young was playing a match with his friend who was head of the x-ray department at a local hospital. Convinced the ball was at fault, the two men x-rayed the golf ball and found that its core was off-center.
With this discovery, Young persuaded Fred Bommer to help him develop the highest quality and best performing golf ball in the world. After three painstaking years, the men finally perfected the first Titleist® golf ball in 1935. Applying a lesson well learned, Young implemented a process check that is still in practice today; every Titleist golf ball is x-rayed. (1)
