Which ball are you putting in play this winter?
I’ve been enjoying my season playing the pro v1x but suspect it’ll play too hard for the cold Canadian winter. Maybe go with the q-star. What are you going to play?

    Thinking something two piece and soft, Soft Feel.

    Normally use Snell Get Sum. Great price and works well.

    Since I play a fairly soft ball (Z-Star or ProV1) I use it all year round. Living in Maryland the winters are fairly moderate with some exceptions - then I stay home. I will go into my box of cart-path balls when the leaves are on the ground.

    I'll probably switch over to the Pinnacle Soft in the colder SC months. One, I like the way it feels and two, I don't mind as much if I lose one in the middle of the fairway in the leaves because of the cheap price!

    Whatever balls I haven't lost by then. :)

    I'll probably stay with my K-Sig, but Supersofts, Duo Softs, and TF D2 Feels are all good winter balls.

    It's August and I personally think you should be banned for bringing up winter, regardless of you living in the Great White North.

    +1, the 50 elite is also a good budget ball for anytime of year tbh

    I was planning to play my TP5X during the winter, since their lower green side spin won’t put me in trouble. Is that a good idea?

    this is the answer.

    I like using the B e6 soft when it gets below 50 degrees here in the midwest. The 50 elite and the duo soft are also in my bag.

    I really like the Srixon soft feel, but I will play a Callaway Supersoft, or really any womens ball. Its wet here in Oregon so I wont actually buy a ball for winter as I find 100s in the summer to use.

  • Jackal66Jackal66 Members Posts: 254 ✭✭✭✭

    Callaway Super soft, or Titleist Tru soft.

  • BogeySwineBogeySwine Members Posts: 26 ✭✭

    I save quite a few found balls throughout the summer season and keep the lower cost balls in good condition in a container and start using them when the leaves start to fall. I don't like to look for a ball in fall conditions with all the colored leaves on the ground. On the upside, playing an early round in the fall, we usually find quite a few in the near rough from the previous evening player's.

    I normally use the same type all year round. However I might use a Pro v1 if it’s a windy day. It gets fairly cold over here.
