Titleist, which entered the golf ball business in 1932, is unveiling new iterations of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls (pictured) at the 2023 PGA Show, as well as new models of Titleist Bob Vokey wedges, Scotty Cameron putters and new Titleist TSR drivers, fairways and hybrids. Titleist is also launching T100, T100S and T200 in an all-black Titanium Carbide Vapor finish, bringing a new look to the most played irons on the PGA TOUR (available for pre-sale Feb. 23 and in golf shops worldwide on March 3).
The new Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, available in golf shops Jan. 25, are engineered with high-gradient core designs to deliver lower long-game spin for increased distance and a more consistent flight, helping golfers hit the ball longer and straighter while maintaining the drop-and-stop greenside control that have made Pro V1 and Pro V1x the leading balls on all professional tours.
Titleist is introducing its final model to its breakthrough TSR metalwood family with the launch of the new TSR1 driver, fairway and hybrid. Engineered for the moderate swing speed player – those with driver swing speeds less than 90 mph – TSR1 promotes optimal launch conditions through an ultra-lightweight design, enhanced aerodynamics and strategically placed center of gravity. The line is designed to bring these players effortless speed, distance and high launch without sacrificing forgiveness, looks or feel.
TSR1 metals will be available for fittings and presale on Feb. 2 and in golf shops worldwide on Feb. 23.
The all-new Titleist TSR2 and TSR3 hybrids, available for pre-orders on Feb. 2, feature advancements in weighting and playabaaility to benefit players of all skill levels.
Vokey Design SM9 wedges featuring lightweight steel and graphite shafts will be available at retail beginning March 10 worldwide, providing more in-store options for moderate swing speed players. The Vokey Design SM9 wedge lineup will be adding even more shot-making options with the introduction of the low-bounce T Grind, one of the most popular grinds on the PGA Tour. Previously available only as a WedgeWorks custom order, the low-bounce T Grind will now be widely available in both stock and custom options as an extension to the existing SM9 family.
Ten new models of Titleist Scotty Cameron Super Select putters are being launched in 2023.

Six of the new models — Super Select Newport, Newport Plus, Newport 2, Newport 2 Plus, Newport 2.5 Plus and Squareback 2 — will be available at Titleist authorized golf shops worldwide on March 17. Four additional models will be released on May 19, including the Super Select Fastback 1.5, Del Mar and the new GOLO 6 and GOLO 6.5 models.
