What Is the Compression Rating for Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls?
The compression measurement for the 2015 model of Titleist's Pro V1 golf ball ranges from approximately 88 to 90, which gives the ball a compression rating of High. Compression is a calculation of how much a ball compresses against the club at impact and is expressed as a simple number.
