TITLEIST DT TRUSOFT A low-compression measurement is one thing, but the engineers at Titleist say they’re pursuing it only to a point. That point goes only as low as Titleist’s panel of players
tells them to go. “We’re designing to their performance
criteria,” says Matt Hogge, Titleist’s director of golf
ball R&D implementation. “We had prototypes that
were very low in a compression number, and golfers
told us they didn’t like that.” Still, the new Titleist DT
TruSoft, which replaces the DT SoLo, will be the com-
pany’s lowest compression golf ball and will feature
the softest cover for an ionomer-cover ball in Titleist
history. The DT TruSoft’s lower compression (about 15
points less than DT SoLo) benefits from the same
technological advancements seen in Titleist’s du-al-core balls like the Pro V1x and NXT Tour. Both of
those balls feature inner cores with low compression.
