  1. Are you joking? The signature on the box is obviously Brandt Snedeker!
  2. My head pro showed me this today. Pretty cool stuff I think.
  3. Any combination of two sets of irons would qualify. Not looking for a specific number, just wondering how popular these types of sets are these days. Seems like they were all the rage 3-4 years ago, and now they are nearly non-existent. Is this really the case on the PGA Tour, or are there more combo sets than I know of?
  4. Does anyone on the PGA Tour use a combo set of irons anymore? If so, please name player and equipment. Thanks!
  5. Just proving a point I was trying to achieve years ago. I thought it was common sense that a perfectly uniform object will fly truer than a non-uniform object, but obviously that wasn't the case...
  6. What do you knuckleheads have to say now? If the old TaylorMade fat seamed balls were so great, funny how they are now touting their seamless design: [url="http://taylormadegolf.com/TaylorMade/Lethal-Golf-Ball/DW-ST035,en_US,pd.html?start=1&cgid=taylormade-balls-shopByType"]http://taylormadegolf.com/TaylorMade/Lethal-Golf-Ball/DW-ST035,en_US,pd.html?start=1&cgid=taylormade-balls-shopByType[/url] Bottom line: seams do affect trajectory, hence the reason why every manufacturer has gone to seamless or nearly seamless designs

[quote name='J13' timestamp='1349316386' post='5747591'] [quote name='freddyottawa' timestamp='1349309438' post='5747081'] It will be interesting to see how many players actually switch to this ball. There seems to be a few fair of the players are not playing the most current model of the V1/V1X. Thanks for the pics. [/quote] According to a Titleist rep that posted on here most players are using the current model despite what some online forum guru's say. I'd say myth busted on that one being that it's from the horses mouth. [/quote] The horse's mouth would technically be the Darrel
  8. Just to make sure there is no confusion - I am NOT saying at all that lower compression equals more distance, it does however usually mean lower spin. Lower spin is not always a good thing with driver. Too low of a spinrate can make the ball fall out of the sky sooner than optimal, sacrificing distance. You have to find the right combination of launch angle and spin based on your ball velocity.
  9. Check with your local rep. Just a heads up - it's not very good. Only allow you to hit ProV1 - no competitor balls, not even other Titleist balls. They make all of their recommendations off of you hitting only one ball type. 5-10 shots each with Driver, 5 or 6 iron, and 50 yd wedge shots. Then they give you ProV1 and ProV1x and tell you to figure it out on your own on the course.
  10. Great post above. Totally agree. Find balls that perform around the green, then take them to the tee with launch monitor and maximize your distance and launch condition. This is how it should be done. This is how every Professional does it, of course staying within their contracted brand. Why do you think Luke Donald still plays the 2005 ProV? My guess is because it has a much better driver launch condition than the new ProV. This is why there are tons of prototype golf balls on the conforming list.

  11. [quote name='Watkins4x' timestamp='1337093425' post='4918018'] So how many times does the ROBOT hit the ball for you on the course? [/quote] You trying to get your post count up? I was simply discussing the science of golf and providing some information on the physics of golf to those who know nothing about it. You know, trying to be a nice guy. Something that is obviously WAYYYY over your head. In most cases, a player that needs less side spin and driver spin, should play a softer compression ball. Not sure why anyone would grill me over this? I guess there is one in every bunch.

  13. [quote name='Fourmyle of Ceres' timestamp='1337026596' post='4913688'] When your clubhead speed is really, really low (like 84-85mph) and you seldom square up the driver clubface (typically 2 to 4 degrees open at impact) optimizing your ball choice for driver launch conditions is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. The most I'm ever going to buy in terms of driver carry distance by choosing the "right" ball is maybe what 3,4,5 yards? If that. pu_golf88, Ball compression is measure in various arbitrary-scale units depending on what tester you're using. But I suspect you were aski
  14. [quote name='Fourmyle of Ceres' timestamp='1337025875' post='4913602'] Please answer the question. What reason is there for not saying "low spin" if you mean "low spin"? [/quote] No reason. Joe Schmo would be better off playing a low spin ball. The point of the conversation is you stated compression has no affect on performance. That is incorrect. Measured compression has a strong relationship to measured ball velocity and measured spin, when hit by a Robot. I simply stated low compression instead of low spin for Joe Schmo because of this strong relationship. 9 times out of 10, a
  15. [quote name='rgk5' timestamp='1337024794' post='4913442'] You do know that four years ago, the compression of the Pro V1 was right around 74. How does this support your high compression is better for the accomplished player theory? [/quote] You do know that there are lots of balls with compression measurments much softer than 74 right? The point was a bad player than cannot hit any shot consistently (drive, irons, chip) would most likely benefit more from a ball that reduces side spin, than a ball that gives him crazy spin around the green. I myself am a 6 hdcp and I personally fin
