New Golf Balls

17 posts in this topic

This is my first post here and i hope to get a lot of answers for the questions that i have. So i live in the North Eastern part of texas where i work for the next year and get to go back to Arizona. I found that the big brand demo days dont ever seem to make there way out here and i am trying to find a new golf ball. I have been using the nike 20XI-S and tried to move to the 20XI-X to cut the spin out of it. I am one of the few players out there that are left handed, and while it is hard to get clubs i dont want to make it hard to find a new golf ball. I am looking for something with great penetrating distance with low spin. If it helps my swing speed is right around 104-109 depending on the day. I see there are a lot of new golf balls out for 2013 so i hope someone can help me out. sorry to be so long but definately just wanted to get this out of the way.

I just got the new Nike Vapors, but I live in OH so you'll have to wait another month for my review....

Where at in Texas are you at? I'm from Childress which is north east, and I'm only an hour away from there still. I game the callaway hex black and occasionally pinnacle golds. I can't tell a huge difference with some balls except the really soft ones. I hate those for short game.

Find a place that sells used golf balls. Try a few different ball types and then come to an informed decision.

Normally I get the Pro-V1x practice balls or X-outs, but I am thinking of giving the 20XI's a try, for the S versions do they have a lot of side spin off the drivers? Or just a lot of spin off the wedges and irons? I'll get a box and let you know how the Pro V1's compare.

What I usually do is just buy a sleeve at the course if they have good deals, and if you like the ball you can get a dozen.

I am in texarkana and i play the hank haney golf ranch here. Really nutty course, but really fun. I had recently gone to my local golf shop and hit some practice balls with a different shaft, fujikura motore f1 which is just ordered for my 10.5 callaway x hot driver. i realized that my data was not as on as i assumed that it was, because my swing speed is 110-115 and i drive the ball straight and 280-290 yrds, so the ball that i would want would be something with low spin and mid-high ball flight. have you ever expiremented with the bridgestone e7? the guys i spoke with from bridgestone recomended it.

The 20XI-S have a lot of spin all around. if you are looking for a ball that will not stop rolling when it hits the fairway as well as incredible amounts of spin around the greens then that is your ball. I have a friend that hits really high and has about 500 side spin and he threw the ball at me when he found it because it made his drive a 100 times worse, didnt know he had a lot of spin. I appologize for not getting back sooner. Internet went out.

I like the titleist nxt tour. Travels well and not as as much back spin as the pro v. I don't worry so much about distance as how it reacts to the green. A short chip with a pro v will check, hit it harder and it will check more, you end up with the same distance, meaning to control the ball you have to get all fancy with the face of the club. It get more complicated, at this point I'm trying to keep it simple.

Well I did make the mistake of thinking I was man enough for PRO V1's, but guess what, I'm back to Wison StaffDX3 balls. Used on on Friday and didnt lose it all round. Still hit some fugly shots just was able to find them just in the second cut rough/bush. I will be gaming these for some time now

Nothing comes close to Pro v'1 or x's, ive tried them all of the top balls and I always find myself coming back to the Pro V range

You're right... The Penta/Lethal is a better ball.

I've been playing the TP3 lately (just cause I'm trying a bunch of different ones out and they were on sale) and so far I really like it.  It's noticeably less spinny on the greens (I don't ever back up a ball on the greens with these, but then again how often do I really need to do that?) but its plenty soft enough off the putter and I really have no qualms at all.  I also did just buy a box of TP5, also cuz they were on sale .. haven't had a chance to play them yet. :)

If you like the TP3 you'll love the TP5. It's a wonderful ball.

isnt the TP3 slightly softer than the TP5? I have to retry the Lethal balls, my shaft is now not stiff enough for my swing and it is flexing way to much on the down swing. Should get good in a couple of days when my white board shaft gets here.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
