Product Spotlight – Titleist NXT Tour and NXT Tour S


Titleist’s mid-range golf ball options, known in recent times as the NXT and NXT Tour, are available now in their most recent iteration and with a slightly different name. Now known as the NXT Tour and NXT Tour S, both balls are claimed to offer long distance, soft feel, and short game control.

NXT Tour

The Titleist NXT® Tour golf ball is designed to deliver low driver and long iron spin for outstanding distance, commanding short game scoring performance and soft feel.  This advanced multi-component golf ball features a large dual core with a soft center, soft Fusablend cover and spherically tiled 302 octahedral dimple design.

  • Three piece construction
  • Exceptional distance
  • Consistent flight
  • Commanding short game spin and control
  • Excellent durability
  • Soft feel on all shots

NST Tour S

The Titleist NXT® Tour S golf ball is designed to deliver NXT Tour performance with softer compression feel. This golf ball features a proprietary soft compression, highly resilient core, and, like NXT Tour, utilizes a soft Fusablend cover and a spherically tiled, 302 octahedral dimple design. Available in white and high optic yellow.

  • Two piece construction
  • Outstanding distance
  • Consistent flight
  • Commanding short game spin and control
  • Excellent durability
  • Very soft feel on all shots

  • Descriptions above provided by Titleist.
  • MSRP for both balls is $44.00, though they are priced considerably less at most retailers.

THP had a chance to sample the new NXT Tour balls on the golf course and found them both enjoyable to play. Both bear a visual resemblance to the Pro V line, with all four balls sharing a similarly designed alignment line, which while somewhat insignificant, is one of the best in the industry.

Between the two balls, the Tour S did seem to be a bit softer sounding and feeling, but in general both were pleasing off all clubs used and there were no substantial differences in performance observed by the naked eye. Both provided adequate spin on both approach shots and partial wedges, though not necessarily on the same level as a urethane ball. It should be noted that while the NXT line may have a thinner cover this year, it is not a Tour level ball. The consumer looking for that option in Titleist’s line should look towards the Pro V series. For all-around performance at a lower price, the NXT Tour and Tour S appear to be solid, quality options.
