I became a lucky owner of about 24 of their golf balls when a "friend" (I got to get him back someday) cleaned out his golf room.  They are "ok".  I play "soft" in general and mostly :bridgestone:e6. My response overall is "meh", not totally bad but, for me and my strokes I would not buy them.  (I also don't play one of the :callaway: softs for the same reason.)

As one who has heard many such pitches, I have taken on a few approaches.  With some companies, I go to the fact that I speak very fluent German and I can go into a hard to understand dialect of that language as well.  Or, if I am in a pissant mood, I will talk to them as if I am a lawyer going over every point in their ad.  Keep them on line in both cases as it ties up their sales figures. Usually they hang up on me!

A lot one can do if they are retired and have time.

I'm forwarding all my solicitor calls to you. TIA!!

This is a follow-up to my 5/29 post. Well, at long last, we have survived the cancer that is Warrior Golf. Finally, the bankruptcy court has approved the sale of our community golf course to us...well

All of the threads on Warrior Golf are pretty old, but the internet is replete with horror stories about these scumbags. Their clubs are garbage, and they've recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which was accelerated by a Florida court ruling that they bilked an elderly man out of over $1 million over the past decade. 

Unfortunately, I'm a member at a club in California owned by Warrior for the past five years. They subsequently took a classic Ted Robinson design and ran it into the ground. The good news is that the roughly 3,000 homeowners in our gated community voted last August (by 78% to 22%) to authorize our HOA board to pursue the purchase of the golf course and restaurant. The sale was proceeding nicely until Warrior's bankruptcy filing, but recent developments again look promising. Hopefully we'll have our course and restaurant back in competent hands by August or so. Wish us lick! The best part is that the bankruptcy court has removed Warrior from any involvement in club operations, and they've designated a management company to oversee operations until this is resolved.

In the meantime, Warrior continues to try to lure unsuspecting golfers into ordering their "custom" clubs. CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!

Notice how many one-post-only accounts there are singing the praises of Warrior.  Hmm...

I bought a 60* wedge from them once but have avoided them like the plague ever since. The sooner they go away the better.

They own 15 golf courses, each of whom are now in the hands of the bankruptcy judge. What would be funny if it weren't so pathetic is that the Warrior owner (Brendan Flaherty) and his flunkies all fancy themselves to be great foosball players. A visit to Warrior's and Flaherty's facebook pages bears that out. Maybe if they'd focused less on foosball and more on golf they wouldn't be in the predicament they're in.

This is a follow-up to my 5/29 post. Well, at long last, we have survived the cancer that is Warrior Golf. Finally, the bankruptcy court has approved the sale of our community golf course to us...well, our HOA, to be specific. We've been subjected to Warrior's incompetence and antagonism for over 5 years, but it's all behind us now. 

I urge anyone who's even thinking about buying any clubs or balls (or whatever) from them to not do it. Once you've bought anything at all from them you can count on being continually harassed by their "sales staff". The internet is full of consumer horror stories involving Warrior. They brag about their money back guarantee, but good luck trying to return anything to them. This is the golf company from hell!!!

OK, now I feel better. Seriously, though, these guys are bad news. Avoid them like the plague.

Good to hear you prevailed. I bought a 60* wedge from them once, which I still have but never use. Whenever I see an “offer” from them now I immediately delete it. Though I didn’t have a bad experience personally there have been too many horror stories about them. So I steer clear of them.

    • Many thanks to all of you who have responded - with a special mention to nevets88. When you say 'Don't just blindly hit balls. You should know what you're trying to do before you hit a ball. For example, I know that for me, I like to do the following/have these feelings on approach shots: good setup, preset forward lean, face pointed at 0*, move off the ball some with my left shoulder, feel the club head hinge up vertically, and then on the downswing make the head "whoosh" and hit the ground after the ball at the same time.' I would say that's pretty much exactly what I do in both practice, and on the course in my 'practice shots' - where it all works and feels fine.  I'm not saying I always make a great shot - sometimes my timing or control is out and I make poor contact, hit it thin or fat etc - but the point is my body is doing approximately what I want it to.  When I'm on the fairway for real, with the ball there, I can feel it's wrong as soon as I start my backswing -  it's as though it's having a spasm and I just can't repeat the action. It's nothing to do with the lie - we have a practice ground where I can stand in short rough on a slope and still make my 'good' (ie intended) swing.  I've just been reading up on the yips - which are described as  a "brain spasm that impairs the short game." and a "focal dystonia," a neurological condition that provokes involuntary movements around specific actions This sounds spot on except it's my long game that's affected.  I've also realised that it's nowhere near as bad on my shorter clubs (anything from my 26 degree hybrid down) where I'm only slightly affected - but my longer clubs and driver are hopeless. So I'm now thinking it is actually a version of the yips. Does that sound nuts?
    • Thanks for the happy birthday wishes. It was a great birthday. Played golf, took a bike ride with the family, ate chocolate chip waffles... great day.
    • I had the same issue with my left elbow, physiotherapist treatment worked for me to reduce the pain. Then strengthen the forearms and wrists, I'm stronger and pain free and enjoy hitting a golf ball, I looked online for golf stretch and strengthen exercises and now have a routine that helps me. Good luck...
    • I like the KBS out of the two you mentioned, but a lot of variables to consider so I think a trip to a professional fitter is the best suggestion I got...
