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.

The advertisement says:

Spalding Molitor is designed for ultimate distance. The all-new Super Reactive Titanium Core produces high energy and superior distance, while an Ionomer Cover enhances initial velocity and flight.

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...

If its a Molitor it must be from an ex tour pro!

    • Hello and welcome to TST. What one may gain from updating clubs can vastly vary. Club head technology has certainly improved with the ability to get the ball in the air and to be a bit more forgiving than older models. The shaft plays a very important role as well, maybe even more important which is why a fitting can be very beneficial. As far as expectations…hard to say. But at the very least you’ll know you’re optimizing one area of your game by having the best irons for you. Cheers.
    • Unless you have undergone swing changes I wouldn't expect any change at all.  The lofts might be stronger which could make you think you've gained distance when you haven't. 10 year old cavity back irons of good quality aren't much different from brand new ones. Your golf doesn't improve when you get new irons unless you were playing something with the wrong shaft or clubs with little or no built-in forgiveness.
    • That’s up to the respective governments to determine. Many countries only require proof of a negative test. 
    • I am sure that it wouldn't be mandated. I don't think one should be allowed to travel internationally without proof of vaccination.
    • I heard David in FL's pool hall will begin to require passport cards beginning on Monday...             😁
