    You need to revisit the thread. Stock number and I think some locations from someone claiming to be a Costco employe. Posted this week.

    The putter was purchased from Chinese factory and QC was done after K4 fiasco and it was deemed not ready to sell.

    I picked up two packs of the three-piece balls today. I’ve never hit them but they are so cheap I figure they can be good practice balls if nothing else.


    Has anyone played the new three-piece balls?

    I picked up a couple dozen over the winter. MN courses aren't open yet, so nothing to report.

    The priority is TP..shorter evaluation time with the USGA.

    I still play them, haven't had a cover rip yet, and it's a great ball. Seems pretty close to the OG 4 piece, maybe a tad shorter, but I haven't put enough rounds in with it to say for sure yet.

    I bought 4 dozen and then got a total refund and was told by Costco to keep the balls.

    I've used 3 dozen with zero issues. Math says I have a dozen left.

    Love them, wish I would have purchased lots more.

    Stay safe.

    I’ve played several of them. They seem to lack the height I get on the original 4 piece, of which I still have a couple of dozen. I see no reason for this, and will play a couple more.

    As to the covers, I find them easier to scuff than the original 4 piece, but have had no problems with cutting. I’m coming to the conclusion that the problems are mostly with higher handicap players who top the ball, as I just have seen no cuts at all.

    I don’t know about the last part of your statement. A good chip with my wedge cut mine. A buddy of mine cut his on his first wedge from 125ish. He has floated between 0-1

    From the April 2020 USGA Conforming ball list. Another K-Sig 3 piece ball with a different side stamp. << Performance +>> Same number of dimples as the current 3 piece K-Sig. Discuss!

    Maybe the same ball with a different stamp? I presume the new stamp costs incrementally less money because it contains fewer characters, and Costco is all about saving money.

    Down to my last 2 dozen of the original 4 piece. Such a good ball. Going to miss it when they're gone... But hey, tis life.

    Costco neat me is loaded with the 3 piece. I really do wonder if they'll actually try to come out with another premium ball one day.

    I would bet money you are right. I just find it odd that Costco would use the same name for a new ball.

    There's a new version of the Pro V1 every year. My guess this is something similar...just a small tweak to the existing ball.

    First, Titleist balls are on a 2 year product cycle. Although submissions to the USGA’s conforming ball list expire after 12 months so they often resubmit the same stamp for retesting.

    There are a couple of reasons the same ball would be resubmitted with a different stamp: 1) proactive safety or reaction to the previous stamp failing a conformance test so that tour players still have support (this happened to the TaylorMade TP Red LDP a decade ago) or 2) cosmetic change due to player feedback when it comes time to resubmit (highly unlikely). #1 definitely does not apply to Costco’s situation so this new stamp likely is a different ball (and it will be welcomed with open arms if they find a way to reduce the spin).
