average about 1ball per round

10 posts in this topic

I been using the cheap two piece balls but now I upgraded to PROv1 X. which is about $3 or more per ball. Last 7 rounds I used7 balls. Should I just go back to using cheap stuff? 3$ per round sounds expensive.

Do you truly believe that you are benefitting from the ProV1 vs the old ball? If so, in what way and how much?

feels more solid, more spin, more yardage, feels better in putting too. I don't really want to go back now that I tried using prov1x for couple rounds but the PRICE is 3x more expensive. My old ball was $1 the prov1x is $3.

I don't think $3 per round for golf balls is that bad. I've been playing the TM Lethal ($4 each) and losing about 2 per round. I'm ok with it.

You know I played proV1s yesterday vs. NXT Tour that I was playing earlier.

I found that ball did get me more distance (on clean well struck shots), better "bites" on the greens, etc. This is the first time I thought the ball was making such a difference. I'm going to stick to ProV1s for a bit as long as I have some in my bag and see if my general play improves at all over a longer period of time.

Luckily I get my proV1s for free on the rail road tracks parallel to a Trump National par 5 haha.

I see a lot of people that don't have nearly enough club head speed to be using a Pro V1, and there are plenty of really good lower compression balls on the market that would be better for them (and cheaper), but they want to play with what the better players are playing. SMH

Of course they do the same thing with golf clubs and shafts too. SMH again!!!

Maybe they figure they can at least look like those better golfers.

I know one guy with about 90 mph club head speed that went and bought an identical driver to the longest hitter at our course that probably has 30 mph more club head speed. When he couldn't hit it and I asked him why he bought it he said that "Shane hits his so well that I thought it was a good club". SMH a third time!!!!

Well if you believe Titliests marketing anyone can play the Pro V1 these days.


Secondly, get them off eBay and you will end up paying cents on the dollar for balls of decent quality.

I`ve been using 2012 TM Penta, they`re a little bit cheaper and I like them a lot, maybe you can have a try.

Yep..."If you believe" them.

BTW I play with Pro V1s except when it is cold. Then I get a little more distance out of something like a DT SoLo.

I also don't have too much pride to pull out an old ball when I play our hole that has the island green (except in the money games). My son says that puts negative thoughts in my mind. Could be but at least it doesn't put a new ball in the water.
