    I played the AD333(Q Star in USA) for the first time last year and was amazed by the performance from an ionomer cover, especially the consistency off irons and spin around the greens. The only issue I had was the slightly too firm feel off mid and long irons.

    I then tried the Q Star Tour hoping for similar performance but with softer feel... I could not believe the difference. I had approach shots flying way offline in both directions, balls dropping out of the air suddenly, chipping felt like using a power ball and had no spin on them, putting was near impossible.

    This all makes a lot more sense now. Thanks MGS. 

    The AD333 is the ball I go to at this time of year. In Ohio, you can lose a ball on every tee shot... in plain sight in the Fall. The AD333 works well for me for distance and feel. It's cheap enough not to worry about losing in the leaves and glare. 

  2. I just pulled off an 88 😳.

    It was 47* and windy. I played well... until I was on the green. Bogey and double most of the round, with a few pars thrown in. The greens were faster than I've ever played on my home course in 25 years. I just couldn't get the feel for them. A missed putt would go 10-15 feet passed the hole. It was a great day other than the score! 🙂

    I live in Ohio and play in temps ranging from 90 degrees to 40 degrees and I always play the same ball.  I honestly don't notice much difference in distance and Im not convinced that much of that distance difference is more the effect of wearing a polo and sweater/jacket and the effect it has only how easy it is to swing a club more than it is in how a ball somehow compresses and springs off the club face.

    I'm in Massillon, and I change to a cheaper ball starting in the Fall, just because I lose so many in the leaves and glare of the sun. Like you, I really don't see much difference in distance because of the temp. I do notice a difference in swinging freely because of bulkier clothing.

    My thought is that  a LOT of players could use dispersion/accuracy improvement every bit as much as distance... so still plenty of meat on the bone.  

    I agree. I wish the focus was more on this than distance.

  5. "If" things are kept just as they are... what good is new equipment if there is nothing to gain from it? What will manufacturers of golf equipment market new product on if things are kept just as they are?  I have no problem with it as far as distance goes. That only leaves dispersion/accuracy as the only "improvements" for equipment manufacturers, as far as I can see. Am I missing something? Thoughts?

    And I wanted to say hi to Silver & Black after Sunday's game.

    Nice to hear from you Nifty. I hope you are doing well. I didn't watch the game... I played golf...lol.

    I'm not really into pro sports at all this year... too much of everything going on for me.

    I figured the Raiders would lose... too many key injuries to overcome. Congrats on the win.

  7. It was an interesting day today...lol. On Thursday, I bent over to pick up a tennis ball for my dog. I felt my left quad muscle pop. I have been nursing it since.  I played today with my brother. The first drive was agony. I thought I was going to die!  I tried to swing easy and within myself for the remaining 17 holes. 

    My brother beat me by a stroke..................... that has only happened twice in the last 5 years...lol. No excuses on my part.... I missed putts that I shouldn't have. I shot 85 and he shot 84. It was a great day and I bought him a beer at the end of the round for beating me. He played well.... and I was/am very happy for him!

  8. I'm a huge Ohio State fan, but I'll pass on this season. If they can play 6 games, why can't they play 12? Does the virus know the difference??? 

    High school football in my state is playing 6 games. Again... if they can play 6, why not 10???  I'm must be really dumb or, I'm just missing something.

    Anyone debating lessons or gear needs lessons. You can always improve your form. Even the pros are constantly getting lessons, clubs ain't going to make you better lessons will.

    All true, but............ pros can well afford lessons. Clubs don't make you better at golf, but they make feel better  because they are new and they are your's...lol.

    38/40 today.  3 birdies today, 2 of them were gross skins and one of them paid both gross and net.   Double bogeyed a par 3 when I 3 putted 😄  

    We had the same round... 38/40 for me also...lol.

  11. My group usually gives putts shorter than two ft. It speeds up play and 9 times out of ten no one is missing a very short putt. If we are playing for a little $$$.... no gimmies...lol.

    The default Titleist weight is labeled as STD. Therefore the plus is heavier and the minus is lighter.

    Cutting 1/2” off the shaft reduces the swingweight by about 3 SW points. 1 swingweight point is about 2 grams.

    Thanks. So I would need the +6 for 1/2"?
