Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered some myself.

Ordered 4 dozen of the 4 piece on Tuesday, and received them today. Never played a Kirkland ball before. I'll try them out tomorrow.

I lost my first sleeve of the 4 piece ball playing 9 today.  Dropped 2 in the creek on hole #2 and the last on at #8. So I don’t know if I’ll like them yet!

Played with them the first time on Saturday. They felt like I was hitting a rock. For some reason I couldn't control it. Ended up shooting a 45 for the first 9 holes. I then switched to my normal SuperSoft ball, and shot a 40 on the back. Now, that said, I played yesterday with them, shot a 36 in the front and a 40 in the back. They still feel like rocks. Not sure if I'll keep them.

I like the 4 piece ball a lot.   I think they're a really good golf ball for a dirt cheap price ($15/dz) and they have performed very well for me.  I have no experience with the 3 piece ball.

At my local Costco here today there were Callaway Hex Soft balls for sale; $29 for 2 dozen.  Even though I didn't need to buy golf balls, I bought 'em!! Putted them around and found them to be really soft; next test is distance when I play this weekend.  Looked for the 4-piece ball but it was not available.  Anyone try the Callawya Hex Soft ball out on the course?

I saw the 4 piece and 3 piece the other day and thought about getting them. I realized that I have too many prov's and chrome softs currently to justify it. I heard the 4 piece is like a rock feel off the club.

I am a higher handicap golfer and not a high ball hitter, but when I play a Prov1 I hit moonshots with my irons and come up short.  A Tour ball was not designed for a golfer like myself but I still bought 2 dozen because of the hype. I will give them a try - I did like the RBZ U and Maxfli U/3 so who knows.

Well, I purchased four dozen four piece Kirkland balls and will try them this Friday. Along with a new ball I'm hitting new irons, (Cleveland HB Launchers), so it should be interesting especially given it is Friday the 13th. My expectations are not to high given I haven't played in two months although I have been to the driving range with the new irons. I'll let you know how I make out, wish me luck.

Playing 18 on Friday but went out today and played 9 as a warm up. Hit the Kirkland four piece ball and really liked them, definitely added yardage  to my drives and felt good around the greens, chipping and putting. Not sure why some say they feel like hitting a rock, I did not feel that at all and it was a little cold when we played. Summer time I anticipate the ball to react even better.

I have to second that.   Tried the 4-piece today; it felt like a rock to me as well.  It ran much further on wedge shots than my NXT or ProV1s and sounded and felt a little hard on putts as well.  I was a little surprised; didn't feel comfortable with them.  Maybe this new batch of the 4-piece isn't like the earlier ones that got rave reviews.

Played another 9 today and found the cover on one of the balls I was using had cut, probably from a wedge, (who knows). Anyway I'm starting to be concerned with the durability of the ball, we'll see. Got four dozen to go through.

Concerned about the distance I'm getting with these balls, I feel I need to club up on each shot. Maybe because the balls are cold, (I'm playing when the temps are in the 40s). We'll see what happens when it warms up. Playing tomorrow and it is suppose to be in the 60s.

    • Congrats to Schauffele! May not be a major but it ranks high on the list of a golfers resume. It does with me anyway.....
    • Mine was my mother.  She was a very angry person with a temper.   Golf was not her game.  She took it up to spend time with me when I was a teenager, after I started playing when I was a caddie. she had a violent, slashing swing.   Her clubs were a set of old MacGregor blades and she would hit the 2-iron a lot off the tee.   It would go far, but rarely where she wanted.  Seriously, it was like some type of hockey motion. she was easily frustrated and had zero short game.  She would ping pong back and forth across the green because her chipping miss was blading the ball.  She’d get mad, start swearing and sometimes take 4 chips/pitches around the green.  Several times I’d have to apologize because she’d get mad and swear so much.  If she was in a bunker, forget it.  Just run! Her main quirk was water though.   It could be a lake or a 2 foot wide stream in front of her.  She’d find it.   We were in Myrtle Beach at Wild Wing Hummingbird years ago and there is a creek hat winds through.  She was about 20 feet in front of he creek that was only a couple of feet deep in front of her.  Sure enough, she topped it and it went in the creek, carried away by the current.   She was super pissed and I couldn’t stop laughing.   We didn’t talk for most of the rest of the day. 
    • Played in an event with a pair that both felt the need to stretch and practically do calisthenics on the first tee right behind me from my warm up, address and right through my swing. I guess they didn’t arrive early enough. It was almost like a parody sketch.    one of the guys was a super nervous sort that could not be still or refrain from fidgeting. He liked to stand on the green behind the flag and be in constant motion. I typically don’t mind where people stand or even if they move around a little, but this was almost like the student section waving giant foam fingers when the opponent is attempting a field goal, extra point, or foul shot. he seemed like a nice guy, just oblivious 
    • Day 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
