I was thrilled that I was chosen to test anything golf. To preface this, I shoot about 100 on a good day. My swing speed is about 90 mph.
I was surprised that I got a dozen golf balls to test. I was expecting a 3 pack. Nothing but the best from MGS.
The day before my round I had to mark the balls and other preparations for the golfer (see image).
I decided that the best test would be to hit with my usual ball, Srixon Soft Feel for a few holes and then with the Duo for a few. Then switch back and forth.
I chose the Soft Feel a few years ago because I like the way they worked around the green and especially putting.
I went out to The Sanctuary in New Lenox, IL. I decided I would measure the distance and count putts. It was a busy Saturday so I did not want to get too clever lest I slow things up and invite the wrath of the rangers.
I found that on average, I got 9 more yard per drive with the Duo. These were shots that were hit with the driver only. I also noticed the drives went straighter. I still tend to go left to right with my driver. Can a ball really straighten out my mini slice? That would be an engineering marvel to rival the pyramids.
I used each ball for 9 holes. Overall, I putted 4 less times with the Duo (14 to 18). I am not sure it is because they pitched better or putted truer.
Overall I liked the ball. I hope to test it again soon to see if the distance and putting numbers hold up.
