Is this a good ball?

6 posts in this topic

My swing speed is about 95 to 100 mph on a good day with my driver. I just learned that if you have a slower swing speed then certain balls can help you out. I picked up some top flight gamer balls today is this a good ball for me, maybe a little added distance, straighter, less spin? I was thinking about also trying the nike crush balls as they are supposed to also be for slower swing speeds. Thought?

I've not played the TF Gamer so can't comment on how they perform. I can say, though, that they get a decent amount of mention here to the extent that I'm considering trying them out. Seem to be a lot of fans. I used to play the TopFlight XL2000 years ago and really liked them. I'm still a high handicapper but heading in the right direction. With the amount of balls I put in the drink or woods each round, I can't justify the ProV's or other high ticket balls - besides, my game isn't strong enough to really capitalize on their benefits. Do a search here on the Gamer and you'll get a lot of good info. Hit 'em well.

Well for anyone wondering about these balls I played 2 rounds this week with them and I usually play with pro v1s and I really couldn't tell the difference. I got good distance and around the greens they felt good.

Good deal.  Any time you find a ball that's well suited to your particular game for less money, you're doing well!

I have similar swing speed as you and am currently playing Crush+.   Distance is ok, ball trajectory seems to be middle, spin seems to be minimal (could be good or bad for your style).   In short, it is an OK ball and I don't mind playing it.

I played Gamer before and it was "ok," too.   Nothing stuck out, either bad or good for my game.

      Nope. We teach it to children. You're just learning a far-from-good way first. That's too much more work. You're going to find the fall lines at each chunk of a putt? I wouldn't want to playing in a group behind you. I'm not gonna play your words games. You're employing a certain method to attempt to read greens. How much can a 3-foot putt break? Not much. As I've said, you have to get the ball to that area before you can worry about how much (an inch? Three?) it's going to break in that area. You're ignoring the majority of the putt, unless you're "chunking" the putt up into enough little segments. No. Nope. You're doing it wrong. Mine will be fine. Edit: See? They're fine.
    • Hauling your clubs in a extended cab truck
      I am really enjoying my set up. I whole heartedly recommend the the switchblade/bedrug combo. Anyone who sees it feels the the same. I am sure that other rolling covers work to but man is this deal slick. I always have my clubs with me and it is like a big golf locker in the bed of my truck now. If anyone cares I can post some images or video of it.

      Amazingly for how terrible I am at putting (and golf), I also try to take that into account too. But per your posts, I'm clearly so ignorant I expect AimPoint is too far over my head to tackle at this stage. I probably have to become a much better golfer before I can properly understand these complex concepts. For me, the reference at the hole helps me extrapolate back to the initial ball position in steps. It's not important to me that you think it's correct. It's simply a visual aid for the kind of mental picture per the images below for the section around the hole; which relates to the prior section, which relates to the section before that, which relates to my initial ball position.   Corresponding to this:  Really? I had no idea that a putt could double break. I have to rethink my whole approach now, dag nab it.   I said it was an aid to visualizing, not a 'method'.  I pay attention to the area around the hole because that is where the ball will usually (hopefully) be slowest (other than situations like going up a ridge) and therefore prone to break more for a given slope. I am also often doing clock drills and again the yardstick provides a reference point for the 'final destination' area around the hole. Besides, don't all greens have about 2* of slope around the hole (& extending outward) on average anyway, so knowing the particular amounts of slope between the initial location of the ball and the hole don't really matter to the outcome?  First time I've seen that. I'd expect the system did that as I universally just hard return between lines of a quoted post and only copy/paste items from off the site. <yup, the quotes were fine in the edit and as soon as I posted, the attribution was dropped. Perhaps a programming error? I'd try to correct it, but I don't see the option to edit in HTML>
    • GPS, WHY ?
      The GPS measurements is more of a side benefit to using Game Golf to track my game. I don't think that I'll ever buy any dedicated device for measuring distances either gps or laser range finders, but if I were ever given one as a gift or won something I would it.
