Do you remember the titanium golf balls?  Off a titanium driver face those suckers should have gone 500 yards!

The titanium in golf balls is typically in the white paint.

Thank you Mr. Nye.  Where can I buy these neodymium golf balls you speak of?

At the neodymium store. Duh.

The core comes into play more than the cover at driver speeds. That and the impact location on the club itself. Mishits are louder.

I wrote a reply but think I forgot to log in first so let me try again, I hit the ball on my home range today with my old M1 driver and it had a definite "clank" to it but wasn't nearly as loud as it was when I hit it from my PXG so I'm going to concede that a mishit may have played into the obnoxiously loud noise it made previously. It was also at least 10 degrees warmer out today so that might also have played a small part in the lesser noise. In any event, I'm definitely not buying any of those balls no matter how cheaply they sell them.

You beat me too it. Titanium dioxide is a very common white pigment. It replace the lead based pigments.

It could be titanium powder in the plastic. It’s is extremely doubtful it’s solid titanium, which would be wicked expensive.

So there was no improved performance with the titanium golf ball? It was just safer to chew on.

Hey Zippo, I tried out my found Molitor ball today.  Interestingly enough it has the Kiawah Island Ocean Course logo on it.  This year's site of the PGA Championship.  A touring pro must have lost it...
