  1. Holy Cow! I got 19th which is definitely my highest so far! Congrats to all the winners and MGS for putting these great contests together!
  2. I never pick them up. I've filled too many ball pouches with balls I'll never use and weighed down by bag unnecessarily. I just leave them all now and play my ball that I know. Side note though: never take a ball out of the water. Golf balls are naturally hygroscopic which means that they absorb water from the environment around them. There's just too much science that shows that even balls that have just sat in water for a relatively short amount of time are significantly affected. My advice, if you're low on balls, don't care what you play, and find a clean one in the fairway or rough that l
  3. I'm really loving the Srixon Z-Star. Might be just a tad over your budget at $40 a dozen or less, but they go on sale a lot (just came off a buy one get one free sale) and really perform for me as good or better than a Titleist ProV. Definitely worth checking out in my opinion.
  4. I haven't got the chance to play the Snells yet, but I really like the standard Z-Star into wind. It performs really well compared to other balls I've tested and should have a tad lower ballflight than the XV. So the standard Z-Star gets my personal recommendation.
  5. The Wilson blades will more than likely be my next set. They are stunning!
  6. Golf Ball H2H #3: Srixon Z-Star vs. Taylormade TP5x In true head-to-head fashion, for this test I put the winners of the first two tests against each other. The Srixon Z-Star beat out its sister ball, the Z-Star XV, and the Taylormade TP5x took on the industry-leading Titleist ProV1x and emerged victorious. Now it's time to see which of these two winners can hold it's ground when pitted against each other. Most Noticeable Differences: TP5x is obviously a firmer bal
  7. My point is, they are not serious options that compete with the field. For instance, why did you buy a Cleveland putter and wedge instead of a Wilson? Or Callaway woods and wedge? Or a Cobra driver? Because the Wilson options in the same categories don't compare. If they did, people (and Tour players) would use them and tout them as quality products. The only clubs the 5 whole Wilson staffers are using that are actually Wilson clubs are the irons and the wedges. NOT ONE Wilson staffer is using a Wilson wood (driver or fairways). The few people that get payed to play Wilson won't even touch the
  8. Gimmicky because the driver doesn't perform. If Wilson put the same amount of resources as they did in a TV show into a dedicated R&D team who put as much research, development, and effort into their other clubs as they do their irons, they would be able to produce a quality product that performs as good as the best today. Wilson's irons are a good product and people know that and consider them a serious option and product, but all their other offerings are a joke. If Wilson wants "visibility" they will put up a product that compares to or beats your Taylormade, Callaway, or Titleist clubs
  9. I don’t think Wilson are back, but I do think they are coming back. They make some top quality irons no doubt and make a decent enough ball. If they would just focus their resources into serious, quality products across the board (drivers, woods, wedges, putters) instead of gimmicky, cheaper products, I think they could easily be a serious player in the equipment world again.
  10. Yeah man, the 10 handicap comes from terrible inconsistency, which is really my primary focus this season (getting a consistent ballstrike and flight, hence trying to nail down a good ball to use consistently). Plus, like I said, the tees were a little forward and the wind was helping a bit, so I really got one out there on that hole. But yeah, I do have a higher swing speed and I really like a firmer ball and the TP5x has really been working for me and my game so far. I'm gonna continue to test the Srixon Z-Star XV because they are quality balls and a little cheaper. I've been looking at the
  11. Just a quick update on the ball testing: I'm really digging the TP5x at the moment. Drove a green with it (actually over the green as it was on the back fringe) on a 300+ par 4 (scorecard said it was 359 yards, but I think it was playing a little shorter that day with the wind helping a bit). I'm loving it off the driver and haven't had any complaints with it around the greens yet, so it's definitely proving to be a strong competitor in my tests so far! I'm curious to see if anything can beat it out as I test some of the Srixons further. I'm continuing to test a bit with the ProV1(x) and they'
