average about 1ball per round

10 posts in this topic

I been using the cheap two piece balls but now I upgraded to PROv1 X. which is about $3 or more per ball. Last 7 rounds I used7 balls. Should I just go back to using cheap stuff? 3$ per round sounds expensive.

Do you truly believe that you are benefitting from the ProV1 vs the old ball? If so, in what way and how much?

feels more solid, more spin, more yardage, feels better in putting too. I don't really want to go back now that I tried using prov1x for couple rounds but the PRICE is 3x more expensive. My old ball was $1 the prov1x is $3.

I don't think $3 per round for golf balls is that bad. I've been playing the TM Lethal ($4 each) and losing about 2 per round. I'm ok with it.

You know I played proV1s yesterday vs. NXT Tour that I was playing earlier.

I found that ball did get me more distance (on clean well struck shots), better "bites" on the greens, etc. This is the first time I thought the ball was making such a difference. I'm going to stick to ProV1s for a bit as long as I have some in my bag and see if my general play improves at all over a longer period of time.

Luckily I get my proV1s for free on the rail road tracks parallel to a Trump National par 5 haha.

I see a lot of people that don't have nearly enough club head speed to be using a Pro V1, and there are plenty of really good lower compression balls on the market that would be better for them (and cheaper), but they want to play with what the better players are playing. SMH

Of course they do the same thing with golf clubs and shafts too. SMH again!!!

Maybe they figure they can at least look like those better golfers.

I know one guy with about 90 mph club head speed that went and bought an identical driver to the longest hitter at our course that probably has 30 mph more club head speed. When he couldn't hit it and I asked him why he bought it he said that "Shane hits his so well that I thought it was a good club". SMH a third time!!!!

Well if you believe Titliests marketing anyone can play the Pro V1 these days.


Secondly, get them off eBay and you will end up paying cents on the dollar for balls of decent quality.

Yep..."If you believe" them.

BTW I play with Pro V1s except when it is cold. Then I get a little more distance out of something like a DT SoLo.

I also don't have too much pride to pull out an old ball when I play our hole that has the island green (except in the money games). My son says that puts negative thoughts in my mind. Could be but at least it doesn't put a new ball in the water.

    • Pace Problem
      Do I think our GM and Pro would adopt what I am suggesting as a course policy? No.  
    • New shoes
      I am looking for a new pair pair of golf shoes.  Since I am a cheapskate trying to stay under $100. Any ideas I like to walk and need them to be waterproof. 
    • Pace Problem
      You (or your mangers) still don't seem to understand that catching another group and playing through them is slower for both groups (and for any groups following them) than if they are all simply required by policy to keep the pace.  The rules are just swell, but playing through should only be something that happens in cases with extenuating circumstances, not a regular habit.  The Rules of Golf were never intended to be used as an excuse for a chronic inability to keep pace with the course. When the course allows certain groups make a habit of playing so slowly that other groups overtake them and have to play through, then you have failed in establishing and maintaining an effective pace of play policy.  That policy is mired in a time warp from the era when courses were never full.  Those days no longer exist and different steps must be taken if a course is really serious about their pace of play.  It's apparent that your course is more concerned about the minority than they are about the majority.  I hope that doesn't eventually bite them in the behind.
    • Pace Problem
      Again, that's been our tactic for seven years, and has not generally worked.  There is not a suggestion made in this thread that we don't do or haven't tried tom speed slow groups up.  Some do, but mostly slow groups stay slow. As a rule of thumb, marshaling 18 holes takes about an hour.  If you attempt to "teach" the first time around, and then discover that you're a bad teacher or the slow group is a bad student when you come back around, by the time you "enforce", you have lost half a round of golf and you have forced faster groups to play the slower group's pace. When I see a group going to 9 at 2 1/2 hours, I tend to say, 'Oh, shit." to myself, because I know we've lost the Pace and it's next to impossible to get it back until that group has left the course.  Sadly, because of staffing cutbacks, that's often the case.  When I say something to the GM or Pro like, "If you want a good pace, you have to be out there from the beginning," it is not received well. If, OTOH, our policy is Pace has Priority on the Course, let faster groups play through, and that is what they hear when they pay, and from the Starter, and that's what the sign in the carts' signholder says, they have no leg to stand on the first time the marshal comes by and sees groups piled up behind a slow group. Yeah, I know, it's different than what everyone's used to. But if you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.

      I am indeed, All down the west coast here in ayrshire there are some fantastic courses and I always feel blessed to have played most of them. I recently played round the kintyre course at Turnberry for the first time it was a real gem. Sadly the 70mph winds did nothing to help scoring leading to a morale sapping 120 score but a great track none the less. I spent my youth years playing in troon on the public owned courses. A student of the links!
