golfers...I'm coming in here with the point of view that the current golf paradigm is flawed.Tour pros are inconsistent, the average golfer never struggles to improve, and the current paradigm doesn't have a solution for any of this.
@Robos these kind of statements are what make me want real answers, data and research. A bold statement he makes there. I think he meant ‘always’ instead of ‘never’ as well.
As a mid-high handicapper I would say that certain types of balls fit my game better than others. I can say for certain that I do not play better with a tour ball but my score would not vary that much between a ProV1 and Velocity. At 68 years old I do get a bit of additional distance off the driver with a low compression surlyn ball and get additional roll which is welcome. Balls like the TruSoft (now TruFeel), Srixon Soft Feel, and the Gamer Soft (RIP) are my comfort zone.
4 rounds this long carnival weekend.
81-70-74-71 (+8) Really good performance. I´m hitting hybrid or irons in par 4´s off the tee to have longer irons to the greens (my course is short 6550). It really helped me to practice those mid and long irons from the fairway and rough, At my course i usually hit wedges all day long and only a couple of long irons on par 3´s. This practice it´s really paying off and i´m sure it will help me a lot when going out and competing on 7000 yards courses.
