Titleist Velocity Balls - Straight and Long but do Not Bite Greens

Recommended Posts

These balls are long. About 10 yards longer with the driver and go straighter with less fade which is my typical ball flight which are exactly what I wanted. My problem is that they tend to bounce too much on the greens. When I hit short irons with Kirkland Signature balls or other soft balls they spin back about 1 foot or only roll forward 1 or 2 feet when hit the greens. With the Titleist Velocity balls they roll forward 4 to 20 feet during my last round. I kinda expect this with low spin balls but this is a little more that what I had hope for. I will not buy again.

Isn’t the ‘low spin’ pertaining to the inner core as far as a smashed hit as with driver and not with a descending hit with grooves as from an iron?

    • It's going to cost $120 for an 1 1/2 hr. private Aimpoint lesson. That's what we're gonna do.
    • I read this just now. (It may have been posted before, and since apparently Reddit embeds are full-size, it's at the bottom). Here's what happened to me this morning. At about 10:30pm last night, I went to watch the second part of the Tiger documentary. My wife fell asleep pretty quickly and my kid watched the whole thing with me. I turned it off and fell asleep pretty quickly, around 12:07am. My recovery was 75% and my HRV around 85 the next morning, but my "sleep" time was 11:03 or something. When I adjusted that to 12:07, my recovery dropped to 51% and my HRV to 57 or something. HRV is supposed to be calculated in the last 5 minutes or something of your deep sleep, so I'm not sure why adjusting the start time - while still doing the same "resting" as I was doing, by just lying in bed - should have any effect on my HRV or my recovery. If my HRV is reported as a different number I get why the recovery would change, but why did the HRV change when I left the wakeup time as 6:59am?    
    • I had a lesson yesterday, 01-20-21. Worked on deep shoulder turn and initial move in downswing to shallow club shaft. Also feeling of holding back to target as long as possible to create room to come through with club.  We also spoke about my 2021 season goals also as outlined on the forum. We added getting driver average to 250 yards.  For my future reference, one of my A4 stills showing progress on deeper shoulder turn as of 01-20-21 Drills and feels to continue: Wall touch at A4 Bump & down pressure move  Hold back to target during downswing
    • All things being equal, I'd want to be the passenger, so that's my answer.  However, some people got no clue what they are doing driving a cart. They cause pace of play issues, park the cart in funny spots, try to sit in the cart every moment they aren't actually hitting their ball and generally drive me insane. I can think of a couple of guys where I insist on driving.
    • Day 99: Worked on my priority piece and soft trail arm work for about 40 minutes until my fingers were too cold.
