MG SENIOR GOLF BALLS Longer?


RITZ

Recommended Posts

I read the info on this ball as non-conforming due to it being 10-15 yards longer off the tee?

Has anyone hit these balls in just playing for fun as anecdotal evidence or do you know if there is any actual test data if these golf balls for seniors go longer or it is all just marketing?

Are the MG golf balls senior listed on USGA as non-conforming? Thanks,

Per MG Golf-

"Hit it Past Your Buddies! Start Enjoying Golf Again with the MG Senior Ball. (Ladies version also available!)The longest ball for golfers whose drives are less than 250 yards.Expect more distance. Astonishingly more. The MG Senior and Ladies version flies higher and longer, with a hotter feel off the face and a sound you aren't used to hearing anymore. And you can expect at least a club longer with your irons too!Putts feel more solid.USGA non-conforming. The MG Senior (unlike our other balls) is not legalfor most tournament play. It is for golfers who want more enjoyment from the game.USGA SpecStatusConstructionConformingWeightConformingSizeConformingSymmetryConformingInitial VelocityToo FastODS (120 mph)Conforming"

Got the MG senior golf balls delivered to me this week and hard to tell yet if any longer as course conditions are still so wet zero roll. Carry might be a little longer but need more time and good weather to find out for sure.

Sunbeltgolfer you are right the MG does have a very click sound. Seems like the ball has an exploding sound when hitting driver.

The MG senior super hard cover reminds me of the old 1980's Top Flite "Top Rocks" /Slazenger/Pinnacle balls?

i found one of these and had it in my bag during a charity tournament. On one hole they had a setup where they had a trackman on the tee and it gave you all the stats on your tee shot. I used my regular ball first and got my normal numbers. We had extra time and I teed off again with the MG senior and the guy running it made a comment that the trackman must have malfunctioned because the ballspeed it was showing was too high for my swing speed. I didnt tell him that i was using a different ball. I didnt see how much faster it was or what the difference in overall distance was but maybe they do go a little farther. That being said, it might have been a 1 yard gain or something after all is said and done.

I grouped up with two older gents two years ago. I grabbed the ball out of the hole for one guy and noticed it was an MG Senior.

 

I looked and said ah. Trying to get a few more yards eh with that illegal ball? He just kinda Looked with a wry smile.

 

His buddy caught wind of what I said and it was a ribbing the entire rest of the round.

Some of the quotes

. . . you still can’t out drive me even with an illegal ball.

 

... illegal balls won’t help your putting

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
