    We have a mix. My usual group (at weekends) is around 2/3 walking and 1/3 riding. The older guys I play occasionally with during the week is more like 60% riders.

    It is getting harder and harder at my club to play in under 4 hours. When I joined 10+ years ago even in a fourball on a Saturday morning in prime season a normal round would be right at 4 hours, maybe a couple minutes less. And in threeballs outside of peak spring-early summer season we generally played in 3:20 or so in our morning dogfight, maybe 3-1/2 hours if it was with four per group.



    Nowadays I can't remember the last time we played in under 3-1/2 hours even with threeballs and nobody ahead of us. And the normal pace this time a year is just over four hours. Same course, mostly the same guys, same rules, same everything except it has just plain old gotten a half-hour slower in a decade. A few guys who play slow have joined over the years and once even a very few 4+ hour players are in the mix that becomes the norm.



    I'm not sure what I'm going to do. If it gets any slower or these 4+ hour rounds continue come football season when the course is less crowded I will just stick to playing late in the day by myself. I love playing with my morning guys but my last three rounds in a row have all been in the 4:10-4:15 range which just eliminates any sense of flow and sucks the joy out of the game for me.




    Are these walking rounds or does your group ride a cart? We all switched to walking about 5 years ago in order to get in shape for our first trip to Bandon. We have all made the switch and walk most rounds, particularly on the weekends. Our course is a links style for perfect for walking. There are a few longer trips between tees, but a nice pleasant pace puts us in the 3:45 to 4 hour mark. Walking really helps dealing with a slower round. I suppose it is the elimination of racing up and sitting in the cart. I have put a seat on my cart. If you have to wait, just take a seat for a few seconds and get ready to hit your next shot.




    This is one reason I went ahead and ordered a cart (it should arrive sometime this week). In my area...the only way that you're going to have a x < 3.5 hr round is if you luck out and there's no one in front of you. More often than not...it's well over four hours. Other than the "easy button" aspect of riding in a cart, there's just no benefit to me. Riding just means that you'll get to your ball faster and spend even more time sitting around waiting.



    Edit: I can't wait to try it out. Which comes back to your original point...walking will help me burn off a few calories and I think it would be a good way to wind down after a long day in the office.

    I've got 4 doz at the top of my closet. Took a sleeve out for a round and almost lost one on the first hole. Dug out the Chrome Softs and put the KSIG back in the bag. The one "used" ball is back in the closet with the other 47. I'll dig 'em out some time for a real trial. I'm almost hoping I don't like them so I'mm not nervous every time I swing.

    We found a K-Sig near a pond off the 5th fairway during a Jr. PGA match yesterday. It had a small scuff on it, but I let my son use it for the rest of his match. I'm proud to have spawned a new generation of K-Sig users.

    Played two more rounds with the Ksig this weekend.



    Three takeaways:



    Very durable, two full rounds with one ball and not one scuff. Some regular wear and tear but still playable

    Great ball flight off the tee and on longer iron shots

    Still can't spin it enough with my shorter irons

    What other balls do you find spin enough with short irons?

    No problem on my end spinning this club with shorter irons. But everyone has a different swing. I play these things multiple rounds until the golf gods need it as a sacrifice. Durability and performance are outstanding with this ball. I've dropped my handicap index 5.6 stokes since October playing these balls paired with the Nike Vapor Flex 440 driver and little practice time. They're keeping me longer and straighter off the tee which, which is making rounds of golf a lot more fun and profitable.

    Yeah man, exactly what I said...Its a "SUPERBALL" indeed...Maybe you can have a discussion about it with your other alias like you did just a bit earlier in the thread...It'll at least keep you busy for a while there Cloverhead!!!

    What other balls do you find spin enough with short irons?




    I'm comparing them to the 2015 ProV1's i regularly play. I've only played 3 rounds with the Ksig but on two very different courses and weather conditions. One on relatively soft greens in cool weather and one with very firm greens and nice and warm weather. Got a lot less spin on my approaches than usual on both courses.



    I'll continue to test them out for a while and I'll probably play them until I've lost or worn my supply out but as it feels right now I wouldn't change and make this my gamer for the rest of my life. Still a great ball at a fantastic price.

    thanks for your opinion, but you are way off. That's ok though. Its all good.



    My experience with the ball is different than yours and many others. No big deal, Like I said above, if it worked THAT WELL for you that can get me that much closer to being a scratch golfer, maybe i didn't use them enough.
  • North ButteNorth Butte Members Posts: 9,911 ✭✭
    Sounds like a classic Catch-22 situation. If you don't like the K-Sig well enough to stick with them and keep playing them, then how do you have enough experience to say you didn't like them? Joseph Heller could explain it better than I...

    I think when the discussion was still centered around the comparison to the Pro v1's at that point. Not really about JUST the K-sig.....i mentioned i had better performance out of a Wilson and a Prov 1, so in my opinion i didn't think the K-sig compared at all to the titleist.......but seeing how the ball is credited with lowering index by 5.6 points, i really think i should try them again.....i didn't like them at first but now, maybe my skewed view of this ball will be erased with much more positive thoughts of my HDCP being improved......im willing to try it again...but to me the prov1 comparison is still way off

    Snaggy did NOT say the ball was responsible. He practiced, hit a driver that was better for him and played this ball. Multiple factors. Obviously the ball was a smaller factor unless it optimised on some attribute his previous ball was not suited for.



    Anecdotally I have hit some of my longest drives this year with the K-Sig..this should be a fun place to share that..BUT I don't claim that to be the sole reason or even a significant fraction of the reason. And if I did it would obviously be only attributable to being a match to my swing characteristics. In each of the cases probably my fitted driver, conditions and a good swing, then the ball in last place for significance.

    Word got out that I was playing the COSTCO ball and immediately carts lined the fairways hoping for a glimpse of an errant shot into the woods. The ball didn't fail me all day and I brought it back home used along with 2 new ones from the sleeve I was playing. Security walked me back to the car,after my round, to protect the valuable contraband in the bag once the word was out I had them in play. Yes I was followed on the way home but managed to shake them and return the unused balls to the safe in the basement. I must be more careful and not let word when out when I use this magical ORB. image/golfer.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':golfer:' /> image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' />

    I also find the durability on these to be a little worse than tour preferreds, pro vs, and b330s I usually play. Still, I would say durability is not a problem at all.

    I ordered 8 dozen last time Costco had them on sale. I agree with all the comments here, great ball and even better at the price.



    I've be comparing these against the Vice Pro+. I'm think the Vice may have a more spin around the green but the K-Sig's just seem to go forever.

    So after many many attempts to like the Ksig, the divorce is officially over. It was long off the tee but just couldn't get along overall.



    So picked up 3 dozen TM Tour Preferred from RBG in the ammo box for $61 total including shipping. After selling my last 2 dozen Ksigs, I have gained an extra dozen balls and a few bucks.



    Really hope their is a "Performance One" on the way, but for now.... good luck to all who love the Ksig.... she is a **** b*&ch, just not felling ya anymore. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    I also find the durability on these to be a little worse than tour preferreds, pro vs, and b330s I usually play. Still, I would say durability is not a problem at all.




    I think durability is only a concern for really good players I have never completed a round without loosing a ball so a balls average lifespan < 9 holes. At this rate you could probably make them out of hardened butter and it would be no problem for me.

    So i just finished playing 18. 9 with the K-Sig and 9 with a pro v1. I wanted a direct comparison, so here is the summary.....shot 46, 39 for an 85. lost 3 sigs on the front but no pro v 1's lost on the back



    the temp was in the mid 60's all round with winds around 12-15mph. Here is what i found.....



    sigs - the feel was different than the pro v and do not seem to explode off the club face as much. Distances were not very consistent between the two balls and the feel wasn't as nice. The balls I lost "seemed" to spin sideways a lot more than what I am used to. I never slice but do push the ball on occasion. The sig went much further to the right than the pro v...not sure why but it had a different "look" to the shot. the lost balls were ~ 30-35 feet off target. The same hit with a prov found the rough, not the woods. I am not sure why because obviously I cannot measure side spin or anything like that, but the ball was a lot less consistent off the tee



    Around the green it was fine....no issues either way. I do not back spin the ball a lot, so the differences between the two balls were minimal....maybe someone else can speak to that.



    Iron shots felt a lot better with the prov....consistency was the key...i hit my 7 iron ~ 155 - 160 with a pure strike so I am not a huge long hitter, but the ksig was either shorter or longer and more off center on iron shots.



    Putting was the same for both....



    i scored better on the back but i have no idea if it was ball related or not...my short game was better on the back after the weather warmed up a bit....



    for me, the ksig is inconsistent when doing a direct comparison....if i was JUST playing the sig, I am sure I would adapt to the ball and correct any issues, but the feel wasn't for me....when comparing prices of the balls, obviously the sig is where you get the value.....$45 per dzn of titleist is outrageous and i cannot afford to play them every single day....if i lose a sig, im like "no big deal". if i lose a prov, i feel like someone just stole my paycheck..... take it for what its worth, which is nothing im sure, i just wanted to share my experience today
