  1. Great follow up, Tony. I'm glad that you didn't have many of the paintfill issues that most of us did. I don't see the poly that fills the power holes being a concern, going back to the C200s I can't recall that ever being a complaint.
  2. Looking forward to this - please let us know how the ball reacts off the face vs your other putters. I know I've had putters in the past where the ball would jump off the face and it would mess up my stroke, thinking I was hitting it way too hard when in reality that was just the ball reacting to the face.

    You'll be happy to know that he's been kicked off the team and banned from campus.
  4. I don't want to say that the players winning with Bridgestone balls equals dominance, but I don't want to discount it either. Look at Bubba's performance once he moved away from the Volvik and back to Titleist.

    Callaway 2019 Big Bertha Hybrids Thread

    The hybrids intrigue me more than the irons do. It's no secret that hybrids and I don't get along but this one just screams "easy to hit".
  7. Y'know, that's actually a pretty good observation and question. I'm curious to hear what the testers have to say. So far, what I've read hasn't excited me on this ball however playing conditions could have an impact on that.

    Back home after a long, exhausting, and ultimately rewarding weekend - our kids won their third national championship in a row, scoring a 98.075, the highest score out of any marching band in the country in the US Bands circuit! Here's a pic of some of the kids with their trophy, my daughter is the one holding the banner on the right with the white headband. She gets to go out as a senior with 3 straight national titles, and my son gets to start his marching band career with a win. The kids were all AMAZING, I had to pull an all-nighter after the show as a chaperone to patrol the hallways and the kids were great, no issues (now, some of the OTHER people staying in the hotel on the other hand...). ETA: Just realized my son is in the pic too [emoji23] He’s the goofball to the right of my daughter’s elbow, his face is pretty level with her arm.

    W/S balls have been a solid value for quite some time. I expect these to be great as well.

    Yeah the fees is where they get you. Tuition could be $2k for in state students but then fees are $12k and room & board is another $12k. Still far less expensive overall than someplace like BU so I’m happy that MassArt is still her first choice (for now). Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    It'll certainly help! Granted, it's not as fantastic as it may seem - it'll only save us about $2k-$4k per year, BUT since she has that there are other merit-based scholarships that she'll most likely qualify for as a result. MassArt is her #1 choice right now. She's also considering the Art Institute of Chicago but I think that one is fading. Many thanks Rob!!!
