Ended up picking up 6 dozen V2 Gamers off RBG based on reviews. Pretty happy! Awesome ball for the price. I used to play Nike Mojo's or Noodle's and these cannot even compare to the V2's!

By a request from a friend who works at a golf store, I tried the Wilson Duo. For 20 bucks it is soft as a ProV, and distance is nearly equal. And its a 2pc ball. Sold me.

This is the best topic. I've given so much advice to my friends about picking the correct golf ball for them with no avail. My friends don't believe in golf balls and just play with whatever happens to be found in the nearby rough/woods.

I'm a big fan of the tour balls because I can generate a ton of spin around the greens and the feel I get from them off my irons is amazing. However, they cost upwards of $30 a box/dozen.

Last year, I had a very drastic dip in performance and decided to get back to basics. I went out (after I had lost all my expensive golf balls) and bought a $20 box of Taylormade Rocketballz. Last year's model had green numbers on them with the "Rocketballz" writing on them. I can't tell you how much I love this ball. It feels great off the driver, has little spin off of it, and gets absolutely launched. I used to be a DT Solo/NXT Tour ball player, but I've definitely switched to the Taylormade balls. Taylormade has done such a good job with R&D; in developing their technology for golf balls, its pretty impressive. I would highly recommend the Rocketballz ball. At $20 a box, its hard to pass up since it is a great ball for beginners and experienced golfers.

On the other hand, if you're an experienced golfer looking for a little more performance out of your golf ball, I would also recommend the Taylormade Penta TP3. Its a great 3 piece ball that generates little to no spin off the driver, large spin off the mid to long irons, and even greater spin off the short irons/wedges. It feels soft off the impact which feels great. This is last year's ball as well and most places (DIck's, Golf Galaxy, Golfsmith) are selling it for $20 a box as well.

I currently use the Taylormade Lethal 5piece ball, but if I'm ever in need to go back to fundamentals and use a round to just get my swing mechanics back, I will always revert back to a Rocketballz or Penta TP3 ball.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
