Edited: Mar 22, 2017

Product Information:

Lately there has been an increase of counterfeit golf products making their way into the marketplace. While Titleist has a program to aggressively pursue those who engage in these practices, some counterfeit products find their way into the marketplace, especially via the internet.

Titleist Pro golf balls were introduced in October 2000 and are tour-proven around the globe. The Titleist Pro golf ball is engineered to deliver exceptional distance, consistent flight, very soft feel, Drop-and-Stop greenside control and longer lasting durability.

Titleist golf balls are made in the U.S. and Thailand, not China. If the goods are shipping from, or located in, China or Hong Kong, they are probably counterfeit.

Try to compare the product that you are buying against authentic product. If there are any differences, even slight ones, it is most likely counterfeit. Titleist does not sell "seconds" or "blems," so there will not be different versions of our products in the marketplace.

If you believe you have purchased counterfeit product, or need tips to avoid purchasing counterfeit product, please see the below information. We hope you find this information useful.

Warnings / Hazards:

Counterfeit products will not perform as authentic product do and are not covered by the Titleist warranty.

If you are in doubt about the authenticity of a Titleist ball, you may elect to cut a ball open. If the ball is solid inside and does not have the Titleist core, it is counterfeit.
