Display sample.....? Its my understanding, having seen the production facility, All titleist balls are x-rayed, weighed & inspected for QC. Call or email customer service maybe they'll send you a dozen.

Yeah, looks like it's been ground down with a belt sander or something.  Maybe part of some QC check.  Definitely doesn't look like anything from the normal manufacturing process.

Be interesting to hear what they say.

I would say that it isn't ground with a belt sander just because that would leave a pattern of straight lines where it ground down material. That being said, I would be kind of disappointed if I got that as one of my dozen balls.

The chance that golf ball came from the factory like that is highly unlikely.

There are fake brand name golf balls made in China, sold cheap on EBay.   It could be one of those.

Nah, I think I hit that one once and crushed it so hard the dimples got flattened on one side.

There is no way that ball passed quality control and was sold.........  (X-outs included)  This is just another stupid internet post..  Whoever took that pic might as well cut the ball in 2 with a saw and make the same claim......it would be just as believable.

The photographer went through the trouble of grinding a ball down and repainting it to take that picture.

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
