Cut Golf claims that their balls are as good as premium golf balls, but for a fraction of the cost. We tested them against the Titleist Pro V1.
Golf Balls that are Direct-to-Consumer have been on the Rise
Golf is a brand you may not have heard of. Golf is a relatively new brand in the market, compared to well-known brands like TaylorMade and Callaway, which have all been making golf balls for decades.
Snell, Vice, Seed, and Golf have all adopted a business model which allows them to make golf balls in far-flung factories using the same materials and technology as tour-backed alternatives. This reduces costs and creates savings that can be passed onto the consumer.
DTC golf balls companies don’t have any retailer margins, endorsements or huge R&D budgets. This means that pricing can be more competitive.

Cut Golf adopted this model and claims to have “A Ball for the People”.
Golf was created out of Sam Uisprapassorn’s frustration at losing four to five balls per round due to his inconsistency. Cut Golf is located in the USA. They’ve been in business for over a year and have always strived to make “the best damn golf ball for less than $20 per dozen.”
We decided to test Golf’s claims and to compare their golf balls against the market-leading Titleist Pro V1 brand.
The Best Winter Golf Balls
Cut Golf offers a variety of balls that are suited for different golfers. The models we tested, the Cut DC and Cut Blue, were chosen because they are direct competitors to the Titleist Pro V1 golf balls. Vice, Seed and Cut also produce lower compression balls with the same technology. However, they are designed to be used at more average swing speeds by club golfers. We will test them with another club golfer.
Cut Golf’s newest ball, the Cut DC, is now available. This four-piece golf ball has 105 compression. It was designed for players of all levels. The closest comparable in Titleist’s product range to it is the Titleist Pro V1x.
Verdict: Golf Balls Cut
We would choose the Cut DC between these two models.
The Cut Blue produced the longest distances using a 7-iron, and the second-lowest spin numbers with driver (in our DTC Golf Ball Test), surpassing the Pro V1 by eight yards with driver and two with an iron. This is quite significant. The Cut Blue’s wedge shots were also shorter at 900 rpm than the Titleist Pro V1 (a 10.9% difference). It generated the lowest spin of all four irons and wedges. This will result in a decrease in control for approach shots, which is something that good players don’t want.
