No, they were from chips and pitches that were hit well and just kept on rolling where my other ball would have stopped for a tap in compared to a long putt. Yep, I missed the putts. One chip rolled over the hole and I was left with an evil 6 foot down hill breaking putt.

Don't wanna razz u too hard, I know it's fun to get all into the technology....but that's a little too silly. 100% mental. Your putting is not influenced by any ball technology whatsoever.
Not one bit. Zero.

 

Not nearly as far fetched as you may want to think.  The speed and feel of a ball as it comes off of the putter is the major factor I use in what ball I use.  Some of it is surely mental, such as how the sound interacts with your brain and changes the way you may feel about it.  However, I can tell a big difference between the way balls putt, and some of them just simply don't work for me.  I'm fine with a ball that I'm consistently long or short with.. but some balls I tend to be very erratic and do not putt consistently with them.  Those balls go into the shag bag very quickly.

 

Currently playing two balls:  1.  Srixon Tri-speed Tour - Tour Yellow.  This is my go to ball.  Great 3-piece ball at a good price.  I finally found a ball that I absolutely love, and they discontinued them.  Have found nothing in the Srixon lineup that replaces them, but luckily I can still find them online.  Bought 10 dozen at $15 ea. earlier this year.

 

2.  Titleist ProV1x - I play these on courses with faster green speeds.  These come off of the putter a little slower than the Tri-speed tours.  If I find that I'm hitting all my putts long, I make the switch to the ProV1x and it normally brings my putting speed back where I want it.  I bought 5 dozen high grade (not sure of the exact grade) used balls off of ebay earlier this year for $30 / dozen.

LOL! All mental. Any "differences" you notice are negligible in the rational world. In golf...not often easy to ignore that. Have your fun...I'll never believe a word of it.

You don't have to believe a word of it. It's something that is a preference for each individual player. If you enjoy putting your Pinnacle Golds as much as any other ball go enjoy rolling the rock around with whatever you use.

 

I know for me that I putt better with the ball I am used to (the ProV1x) than other balls just because I can tell instantly how far the putt will go when it hits the face since I'm used to it. I could putt just as well with any other ball provided I had time to get used to it, but seeing as how the numbers show that the ProV1x performs for me I'll stick with it.

I think I'm heading that way too.
