Titleist Velocity Vs. Titleist Tour Soft Golf Balls Comparison Overview
The Titleist Velocity and the Titleist Tour Soft balls have a lot of features in common. For instance, they are both premium grade balls that are designed to help with distance.
They even have the same type of core which, isn’t too surprising being that they’re both Titleist balls.
However, after having tested both of them side-by-side, we found that there were some key differences every golfer should know about if they are considering buying these balls.
Find out what you need to know about these premium-grade balls in the following comparison article.
Titleist Velocity Golf Balls Overview
The Titleist Velocity balls promote low spin rates across the board which is a good and bad thing.
Off the deck, you will want to use these balls as much as possible. They yield very low spin rates with your hybrid, woods or even your driver.
The downside is that when you need to backspin the ball on the green or want to roll it more, you won’t get much help from these balls.
The Titleist Velocity balls feature the same type of LSX core that the Tour Soft balls have. Only, it would seem that the core of the Velocity balls are a bit smaller.
From the deck, the Surlyn cover of these balls feels nice and soft – they just aren’t very responsive.
This makes them adequate for shots with your long irons or hybrids but you lose some feel and accuracy around the green.
Titleist Tour Soft Golf Balls Overview
The Tour Soft balls have a very large core that does a great job of preserving swing energy. You get nearly effortless ball speed with these balls.
Like the Titleist Velocity balls, the Tour Soft balls perform great off the deck. In fact we were getting faster ball speeds with these balls off the deck than we were from the Titleist Velocity balls.
The 1.6” diameter cores and 2-piece construction do a great job of transferring energy from the club face.
These balls have an ionomer composite cover material so they are almost as thin as urethane but not quite.
We were getting more robust spin in the short game than we were with the Titleist Velocity balls.
The key difference between these two balls was short-game spin rates. The Tour Soft balls performed more admirably than the Titleist Velocity’s in this department.
