  1. I was a TP5 - Pro V1x guy. But I have been playing the 2020 Chrome Soft this season and it feels great, spins great and actually goes a little farther than the other 2 for me. My driver SS is mid 90s and I continue to carry a fairway bunker that is 227 every time. Never thought I would play a Callaway ball - but its in the bag.
  2. I have AP2s and play the set GW (50*). I just think of it as a strong PW and a weak PW. I play Vokey 54S and 58M with it.

  4. For me the Chrome Soft is really straight and the distance is as good as the others with the 2020 version. I never thought I would play their ball until this year.
  5. First pick a ball brand you want to try. Pro V1-Pro V1x or TP5-Tp5X or Chrome Soft- Chrome SoftX. Then play them side by side and see which you like better (don't forget the short stuff and putts). Play it for a while, then try another brands similar ball if you want to search some more. Pro V1 x vs. TPX and see if it makes a difference. Most of the info/characteristics for every ball are on the back of the box or the company's web site. They often have a ball selector tool as well. They are all pretty good - It is more important to play the same ball shot to
  6. I think a general fitting is important, but if a player doesn't have a consistent swing then a fitting will only be so good. I'm in my 5th decade of play golf and I play a lot (80-100 rounds a year in the northeast). I don't change equipment much - I have had 6 Titanium drivers, 5 sets of irons, and maybe 6-8 sets of wedges. But none of them changed my handicap/scores (6.8 index) dramatically - we all buy a lot of hope!
  7. I always think of the pitcher who wants a scuffed baseball so it curves more and that's only 60 feet and 90+ mph... so what does a scuffed golf ball do traveling way faster than that? So any abrasion bigger than a dime gets tossed.
  8. I have a backup driver, putter and 54 an d 58 wedges that are the older versions that I played of what I have in my bag now. I figure these are the most important clubs if something goes wrong.
  9. Well baseball pitchers love to throw balls with scuffs or a substance on them on them because they curve more - and that's only 60 feet at 90 -100 mph. So I guess a golf ball with a scuff coming off a club faster and flying farther would be impacted more.
  10. Never get fit inside. You have to hit clubs outside and right away you will know by the ball flight if the club passes your own eye test. I usually go to a demo day of clubs I'm interested in trying. Then if the ball flight looks right and they feel right then I go make sure the numbers on trackman confirm what my eyes are telling me.

I usually go to a demo day of clubs I'm interested in trying. Then if the ball flight looks right and they feel right then I go make sure the numbers on trackman confirm what my eyes are telling me. Thicker grips (although often feel good) restrict hand action causing right shots - this maybe a cheap and easy fix to your troubles.
  12. I like the TP5 a lot and up until 2020 I would have chosen it over the Chrome Soft. But this year's CS has been very good to me - distance, spin, feel and score. But one of the reasons I chose it over TP5 is I'm a big believer in playing the same ball. So with the TP5 at the end of its two year cycle and the 2020 CS starting this year I figured I should get a an 18-24 month run with this ball.
  13. Still waiting... my head pro said he is almost out of V1s and Xs and not sure when he can get more. Our members are also still waiting for the 3/4 deal as of today. I have been playing the 2020 Chrome Soft which has been an excellent ball for me - 5.9 index; 95-96 mph driver swing. Not sure I will go back to to my Pro Vs right away when they arrive.

    Less then 14

    Driver, 4 HB, 5-PW, 54, 58, putter ... my 11 when I want to go light. Shot 74 last time out, but usually 77-82 from about 6300. Thinking about dropping the 54 & 58 for just a 56.
