Premium Golf Balls

Started experimenting...
I've never played a premium ball before, and I had a bunch that I found and had sitting around the house collecting dust. I decided to try them out and was surprised to find that I am probably saving 2 - 3 strokes a round with these balls.



So far I like the Tour ix and Pro V1x. I hit the NOP today and was surprised at how far it went (the reviews I read said it wasn't very long for players with slower SS). The big surprise is how well it checked up on the green compared to the others. Three shots I hit today stopped near the hole and a fourth went in. With my old 2-piece ball all those shots would have been well past the pin, and even the mid-priced 3-piece would have rolled by.



Tomorrow the NOP, the ix, and V1x will go head to head to head. Which ever works best is what I'll use. I really like the action around the green as I can be more aggressive with chips and pitches knowing the ball will check up.



I also tried the Z-URS, B-330s, V1, and the TM Black.



I never realized what a difference a premium ball could make. I'm sold and look forward to FINALLY just using one ball.

    The Nike One Platinum, if you want to compare apple to apples, should go up against the Callaway Tour I and Titleist Pro V1.

    I know, I got my fruit mixed up. But the NOP, so far, seems to have the distance as the "x's" with more short game spin. I'll find out more tomorrow.
