  1. I have been using the Taylormade TP5x balls since they released and even used the Tour Preferred X balls before that so I know what I am saying about Taylormade golf balls. The TP5x is a great ball which is why many tour pros use them. I have used way over 200 TP5x balls since I do play every day and one thing I have noticed is how damaged they are able to get even after one shot. I time I even took a fresh TP5x out because on the previous hole it was way too damaged to use. I hit a 5 iron and the cover over the ball was nearly cracked in to two. Last week I used a TP5x for 15 holes and b
  2. This is interesting, I find the balls at my range here in AD are very hard and do wear my iron and in fact wood faces out. There’s a guy here who has caved in multiple m5 heads just because of the range balls.
  3. I have definitely seen much improvements in this!! I would have to switch the old balls out every 9 or even sometimes less because they were so scuffed up. The new ones are much harder to scuff up.
  4. sunflower seeds sound like a great idea! I'll definitely try that.
  5. Hello Everyone, I have an interesting topic. Being completely honest, I don't eat very healthy on the course. My food and drink usually consist of a lot of Coke and ice-lollies, chocolate croissants and Mars-Bars. If I am not feeling Coke, I would usually buy a Vitamin Well. I would like to know what others eat and drink on the golf course. It would be cool to see if it improves/changes scores. Also, please leave recommendations on some healthy snacks I and others could eat.
  6. I use the 50° as a replacement as a gap wedge. In my old set of G400 irons, it didn't have one and I already loved the Ping Glide 2.0's. I got the 50° on Christmas day not knowing my new set in March would come with one. I found better consistency in the 50° than the gap wedge that came with my irons so I stuck with it in the bag. The gap wedge that came with the set was also 50° so I just call the Ping my gap wedge. I chose the 52° for around 105-yard shots and for more roll on chips. I didn't want a 56° because I felt it would be too little of a gap and the 58° in my opinion, was the b
  7. Hello everyone, I would just like to say, I am very new here and am not sure if this is posted in the right place. Still learning Forums but, am excited to get into it!

  8. Austin - Abu Dhabi Handicap- 3 Swing Speed - 105 with a driver. Honestly not too sure about my irons. Current Ball Played: Taylormade TP5x. Have you previously played the Z Star or XV: I have previously tested both balls, but they never made it fully into my bag. I would be happy to test them for the next 2 months and am willing to dedicate time to review them. I play golf every day and could potentially keep a diary on how I feel about them compared to other balls.
