I never understood the appeal of fancy tees. I mean really it is not that hard to figure out what height is good for you with a plain white tee. Add to the fact that you can get a bag that lasts two years for three bucks.
Well distance balls aren't slippery through the air. Distance balls are usually lower compression balls that give a little boost in yardage to people with a lower swing speed. Also distance balls are usually designed with very low side spin which in theory is supposed to slice or hook less when mishit.
I have managed to slice a low spin ball just as bad as a tour ball so to me the difference is not very noticeable. If you slice a prov1 violently you just need to learn how not to slice it violently. It would be interesting to see how many more yards a tour ball slices right compared to low side spin ball.
I did the exact same thing. I pulled my 3 wood on the tee for almost a whole season because I knew I could hit it accurately and about the same distance. After awhile though I hit with my driver exclusively because I felt I needed to be able to learn to utilize the club. I am glad I did because the last couple of rounds and range sessions something has clicked for me with the driver. I am hitting it better than I ever have and with better consistency as well. It's...
If you don't mind used balls.
A lot of people swear by their quality.
I just ordered a dozen Callaway Hex Chrome and a dozen Nike 20XI-S AAAAA for $42.
I may be that guy who doesn't talk a lot during the round. I mean I won't be totally silent but if I don't know you I am not going to be cracking jokes and trying to start conversations. I am there pretty much to play golf.
The last time out as a single I was paired with a guy who gave me advice. The stuff he told me helped me out so I can't really complain. I don't really mind it as long as it is not on every swing and they don't expect you to drop everything and...
My last round I played with a Taylomade TP Black. Usually play Q-Stars but got a dozen for $22 off Ebay (were supposed to be TP3's, but hat is another story) Good ball/ Really takes off the club face when struck solid, but not a fan of the feel off the putter.
I have been wanting to play CC. I have only been out here about six months and have only played Riverdale and a few courses in Denver. From Wisconsin so I can deal with a little snow while playing as long as I can get out. Golf season is officially over back there.
