Acushnet wins jury verdict in Callaway golf ball patent dispute

Acushnet (parent company of Titleist) has won a jury verdict against Callaway regarding four patents which Callaway owned related to the previous generation of Pro V1 golf balls. I wonder if this means Titleist will alter the next generation ball to utilize that technology again, now that they’ve been found not to be infringing on Callaway’s patents? I noticed quite a difference in the balls from the two different years, not in performance per se, but in the feel, durability and tackiness of the ball.

At the PGA Show demo day I walked by a covered booth and saw this guy hitting balls about one per 1-2 seconds via an automated ball dispenser.  He was over three hours into his world record attempt for the most golf balls hit in 12 hours.  He did break the record and ended up with 7721.

Below they’re taking a quick break to tape up the blisters…
