I never really took weight of a golf ball in any equation in my game until today and today I learned something, if it helps someone else so be it. Right now I sit at a 15 handicap so take this for what it is worth. A couple years ago ( really longer than that ) I could drive a ball forever off the T and fade it just a far left as it went forward. Yea played a lot of 2nd shots from somebody else fairway or woods. I play left handed. Worked on it and changed balls forever...
