Longest hitting ball

12 posts in this topic

I've usually play the titleist pro vl/v1x because I tend to find a lot on the course I play at, but I would like to hit a ball the has the farthest distance and rolls out a little more on chips and approaches. I have heard about sleaze gear rd and callaway hx hot

Nike PD long has very little spin on the green and takes off nice from the tee.  If feels like a rock but it has some good distance for a good price point.

Flying Lady Pink Balls for scrambles= LONG

but if you want to play a round.. Top Flite Freak's are the longest for sure. I hit them a good 15-20 yards longer than a Pro V

I play mostly with Pro V1s but occasionally play with other balls that I find when mowing the course.

Some balls I absolutely hate (and won't play with at all) but I don't see much difference in distance in the ones I will play with.

Depends a lot more on how well I'm hitting the ball than the type of ball. That said, I really hit some long balls (for me) last week and I was playing with a Calloway Tour iZ. No way to know if the ball had anything to do with it, or if I was just having a good day.

I was under the same impression.

In a scramble back in June, I hit drives with both a ProV1x and Slazenger Raw and Xtreme Ti. I didn't see a significant difference in yardage off the tee.

Yeah I have to find them in used ball bins at courses or Play it Again stores.. But I do think they still sell them. Not sure.. I buy them used because when I hit them, it is in a scramble and I am going for something that is most likely unrealistic lol.

There isn't much difference. I say just try to find a ball that matches your impact. Lower swing speed wants a bit less compression in the golf ball. Higher swing speed wants a bit higher compression. I usually play mid priced or premium golf balls, which ever sale is better , and i haven't found that much difference in distance. Most of them are with in 5 yards, nothing earth shattering. I rather fit golf balls to my iron and wedge game. That is were i really want to score with. I rather take 5 yards off the driver, and add better performance around the green.

I agree with this completely. Losing 5 yards max distance off the driver shouldn't have a huge impact on your game unless you are barely clearing hazards, and if that's the case you are taking unneeded risks. Better to have a shot at sticking approach shots and chips/pitches close.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      Hit my first 100+ in 9 or 10 games - 101 (low 90s hitter of late) Which really pissed me off because before today, I would have said the only reason I'm struggling to shoot under 90 was because of my driver getting me into jail all too often, Today was the best day I've ever had with a driver, not once in the woods, hit 11FW in regulation with an average of around 220/25, which is an absolute first for me by a mile. However 52 putts, lost count of how many triple putts I made - off the charts! In my defense I've never played on such challenging greens, also a first for me, still no excuse.

      Hi, Dan. There was a brief thread on that here (easy to miss as the volume of topics can get pretty high around at times): I just played a round today at a fairly popular county-run course (Twin Lakes), and I only see a couple GG rounds there per week. Surprised me, as I thought I might see a few per day or something. Since I play in the mornings typically, I doubt I'll have the luxury of a pin being marked prior to my playing that hole! After 4 rounds entered, here's how I stack up against 15-handicappers: GG gives me an 18 index, so let's see.... 6 strokes lost in driving and putting. 2.7 gained in approaches/short game.  That's 3.3 lost compared to a 15-handicap. Math works out. Also seems about right- my irons have been decent, as has my play around the greens. Driving erratic (too many penalties), and I've lost focus on way too many first putts to give me too many three-putts.    
    • Your best golfing bargain
      E-bay   200.00 fairway wood new for 50.00  sitting in my closet till the one I use breaks or gets a time out.
    • Rib fracture
      I haven't been playing but just because of my schedule. I'm actually about to go play a little executive course in about an hour or so. I feel pretty confident because it never hurts in the gym anymore. I hope you feel 100% soon, try to give it more rest than you think it needs. Also make sure you are getting proper nutrients, someone with a broken bone may want to look into bone supplements because of the need for additional calcium. I took this pill called bone restore or something to make sure I got an adequate amount of vitamin D, calcium, etc
    • Reading Greens
      I passed on Aimpoint. That doesn't mean that was the correct decision - I could probably use the skills there. Instead, I just created my own pre-shot routine, just like with any other shot. I won't go through my whole routine, but basically when it comes to reading breaks I squat down and the most important part of it (for me) is me determining which was the green drains rainwater. All greens have to drain. I then take a very wide look at the green in my peripheral vision and match it with the trees in any treelines around to have an offset in my vision to determine the magnitude of any slops/breaks. Then I just imagine lightly tossing a ball in my mind and seeing where I think it would go. Works for me, for now. May not work for you. I just realized that when I focused hard on a line and where I was going to put it that's when I would greatly misread breaks. Putting has a huge negative tunnel-vision influence on me.
