  1. I just read that Abraham Ancer signed with Callaway, but the article only mentions woods, an Odyssey putter, and a Callaway hat. Is this the same type of partial bag deal that TaylorMade used to do?
  2. Foremost also makes the Maxfli Tour for Dick's Sporting Goods. TM has several markets covered with these deals.
  3. I'm only 1 round in with it so I'll play it again and see how it does. This was my first round with an X version and I was also spinning back short iron shots more than normal for my game. Not enough to cause any problems but enough to notice it. Hopefully I can get out this weekend to the same course and do a little more comparison between both the regular and the X.
  4. The X definitely has a higher flight. I'm supposing that's where the extra distance came from. I always heard there's s difference between the two ball flights but I was surprised at the difference between the two. I've predominantly played the 2019 Pro V1 this year so that's why it was so noticeable to me.
  5. Played my first round this past weekend with the Pro V1 X (I'm a long time Pro V1 player). Don't know if it was my imagination or if the ball performed better than the Pro V1 but it seemed to jump off the driver face and spun more with short irons enough that I could tell a discernable difference. I hit longer drives and spun back iron shots more than I usually do. I know the V1 X is supposed to be higher spinning, but I didn't think it would be that much higher. FWIW I definitely fall into the Average Joe swing speed category (93-96 MPH driver swing). Has anyone else noticed much of a difference between the two?
  6. Cardigan MG Golf is where I got 'em. They must have been around awhile to show up in stock on that site.
  7. So I played half a round with these. Great ball IMHO. Feels exactly like a Chrome Soft to me.
  8. Maybe a new version from Callaway put in the field for testing? Never seen them before.
  9. I'm gonna try them this weekend also. Seem to be a good ball.
  10. Any intel on the Callaway Legacy Black golf balls? They remind me of the old Hex Chrome. Seem to be pretty decent and were popular in the Japanese market. Has anyone played these? I picked up some online and will try them this weekend.
  11. My irons are almost 10 years old. I re-gripped them recently and have no reason to change. As long as I know the distances and can hit them consistently there's no reason to change to somethig newer.
  12. I have 5 hybrids in my bag. The longest iron I carry is an 8 iron. It works well for me.
  13. I like it!!! I do the same thing with hybrids. The longest iron I have is an 8 iron.
  14. Just my two cents, but I'd say from the green to tee. Start on the green and get a good feel for the putter, then work on short chips and pitches and get a good feel there, then 100-150 yards out or so, and then the woods and driver.
  15. So when did Vice go retail? That's a new one on me. Saw them at the local Wally World today. Balls, gloves, hats, bags. I thought they were DTC.
  16. It will definitely smile at you if caught thin for sure!!!!! This is one of the few that I have found that is not egg shaped or cut too bad.
  17. I was checking out a local flea market and found this Titleist Tour Balata 90 in a bucket of old golf balls. I'd like to take it to the range and chip with it to see how it performs. I think it would be fun.
  18. I think it's a great fit for Bernhard Langer to sign with Tour Edge. They seem to be the Adams Golf of the Champions Tour. Wonder what irons he will play?
  19. I've ordered 5A from Lostgolfballs and have had no problems at all. There is a huge difference between recycled and refurbished. Stay away from refurbished as these have been repainted and that will definitely make a difference in the performance of the ball. My last shipment of Prov1s were 5A and I couldn't tell any difference in performance versus new ones. I personally wouldn't go any lower than 5A though.
  20. Very interesting.....Mize knows Augusta like the back of his hand and is making shots. Hope he stays in contention this weekend.
  21. @wcdixon when I first tried the rogue in the simulator I wasn't impressed but I tested it with the stock shaft. The 565 from my XR 16 made all the difference. I also couldn't believe how much larger the Rogue head is than the XR 16. The XR 16 has been a good driver for me for a few years, but I'm really impressed with the Rogue.
