PREVIEW: Titleist DT TruSoft golf balls

PREVIEW: Titleist DT TruSoft golf balls

At some point in your life, you probably hit a Titleist DT Solo golf ball. There's a fresh dozen sitting in my wife's car from an outing a few years ago. They're good emergency golf balls, but they're kind of obsolete. Titleist recognized this and decided to inject some new life into the mainstay line by softening them up with the DT TruSoft ball.

The DT TruSoft is Titleist's latest foray into the softer-ball movement. However, Titleist is quick to point out that this isn't the only ball in their line with a soft core. Several balls in their lineup, including the Pro V1, feature a soft core, or inner core as part of a multi-layer core.

Titleist says the DT TruSoft, whose core is 15 compression units lower than the jettisoned DT Solo, will provide better feel on every shot, sporting its lowest compression core ever with an ionomer cover that doesn't sacrifice short-game spin. The company's 376 tetrahedral dimple design remains for, what the company feels, is the best aerodynamic performance.

The new DT TruSoft is available on Oct. 1 for $30 per dozen, available in white and yellow models.
