Gamer Urethane durability

Played 9 holes after work and the cover was chewed up pretty good after the first 3 holes (par 4, par 4, par 3). Should have probably took it out of play but I finished the round with it. Here’s a few pics for those interested.

    Didn’t notice them being short like some guys complain about the gamer tour. They were right on target distance wise if anything maybe a little longer than normal.

    I agree. I think it is an exceptional ball at the price. I've been loading up on them.

    Sounds about right. My experience is that this ball wears pretty quickly. Other than that, it performs on par with other urethane balls.

    According to the 2018 Golf Digest "Hot List: Best New Golf Balls', the new ball has "A new core design adds distance to this urethane-cover model."



    It doesn't say anything about the cover. So, I would think that even if the core is different, the cover is probably the same and would have the same durability as last year's "Gamer Tour" model.

    Wouldn't be shocked at that at all

    Like previous model, I will stay away from Gamer Urethane.

    The only knock I had against the Gamer Tour was the lack of distance with all clubs. Durability, spin and feel were all acceptable considering the great price. If it's true that the Gamer U is longer, then I'll definitely consider it.

    First day I played with the new urethane I had a 293 yard drive. Played with them again yesterday and hit one 312 yards. Distance seems to be fine to me normal drives for me are around 280.

    How do they feel? Firm like a Prov?
  • AWoods1605AWoods1605 Members Posts: 89
    They are firm. No where near as spiny as a pro v but compared to a 2 piece ball they check up a lot faster on the greens. You have to carry them a good bit closer to the hole or you will come up short.
