What’s New in 2017 from Titleist

Pro V1 & Pro V1x Balls
How to improve the best-selling golf balls in the world? The three-piece Pro V1 has a new center, called the Next Generation 2.0 ZG Process Core, which provides longer distance on all shots, and a revamped dimple design for a more penetrating flight. The four-piece Pro V1x, which has a slightly firmer feel, also had its dimples redone for a higher trajectory and more spin on iron shots. Both balls have a soft Urethane Elastomer cover system formulated for greenside control. $48 a dozen
917 Woods
Both drivers and fairway woods are available in two models: the D2 is a bit more forgiving with a slightly larger head; the D3 is slightly smaller and offers more workability. All have a channel in the sole that flexes at impact to produce more ball speed and distance, a low center of gravity design, and adjustable hosels and weights. Driver: $499; Fairway woods: $319
Scotty Cameron Futura Putters 
These seven new mallet putters, with shapes both traditional and modern, combine different materials to move weight back and to the edges for extreme resistance to twisting. Each has a built-in vibration-dampening system for feel and a choice of alignment options. $379–$399
Scotty Cameron Select Newport 3 Putter
The newest member of Cameron’s Select line—for golfers who want customizable weighting—is this tear-drop-shaped, heel-shafted mid-mallet. An aircraft-grade aluminum face inlay is fused into a milled stainless steel body, with the weight distributed for stability and forgiveness. $379
