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...

    • I didn't take up golf until I retired at the age of 57. It is the ideal sport to keep you fit, gives you fresh air, and best of all I get to spend time with friends and have a laugh. I should also mention it get's me away from the wife, as I believe all men need to do that. Unfortunately my body will only allow me to play three or four times a week at the most, and te UK weather is a factor as well 
    • My game slipped a bit in 2022, have struggled in the long game most of the season.  Best rounds were 78s (whereas 2021 my best was 74 & 75 back to back).  With that background shared, here are my 2023 goals: 1. Get the long game back on track. 2. Shoot par or better over an 18 hole round (have done it over 9). 3. Win a mens club tournament (in my flight), preferably the club championship (placed 2nd gross in 2022). I am working with a pro over the winter.  The plan is to meet every 1-2 weeks, and I will practice every day.  I’m hoping we can do the heavy lifting over these next 3 months, and come golf season continue to reinforce everything from the off-season with maybe some new smaller things throughout the season.  I’m also working on dropping some weight and getting my physical fitness back on track (have let myself slip the past 2 years). Good luck to everyone on your goals!
    • @Themightyoz I run a friendly competitive net league myself, so I like your post and all the discussion. We play once a month, there are 20 players that participate overall, but typically about 12 per event.  All events are net based off official GHIN, and the indexes range from about 5-28.  Last year the events consisted of Stroke play, Skins, Chicago, Stableford, 2 person best ball.  Everyone puts $20 into the pot and pot pays out top 3.  There is a optional gross birdie pot as well, which pays out based on number of gross birdies.  I also gave points to the top 3 each event, and the player with the most points at the end of the year won the cup (which was an engraved stainless steel beer stein).  We don’t flight because there aren’t enough people.  I probably would have flights if we had 20+ players every event. For 2023, I’m adding a little more.  There will be 7 events total, two of them majors.  First major the week after the Masters, and one the last event of the year.  Buy in will be double for those events.  I’m also revising the event points to sort of mirror the FedEx Cup points.  E.g. 1st 50 pts, 2nd 30 pts, 3rd 19 pts 4th 14 pts, etc.  I’m still thinking about how I might tweak the event points a little, I want more people to be in the running come the final event.  I like the idea of 90% index mentioned above, I’ll have to think more about that. The formal mens league I play in is over 200 members.  That league has 4 (sometimes 5, depending on participation) flights, based on index.  Typical game formats, season point system, weekly side games (deuces, birdies, skins), some team events, a two day club championship at the end of the season.

    • Congrats.   You will probably miss a few tags.    Don't worry.   Try to set up a routine.   It may take some time.   The magnet is strong but I wish there was a Kevlar string attached to the device.   I've not had mine fall out though.
