Thanks to a very generous offer from downlowkey (and Shankster) I have been able to put the Kirkland Signature into play. They are unavailable in Australia, and downlowkey sent me a sleeve, which as I've already mentioned, was incredibly generous. Enough background, now to the ball. I've been playing Srixon Z Stars for years, through several generations. I normally start each competition round with a new ball, but forgot to stock up my bag prior to my round. As a result I picked the best of the used Z Stars in my bag. Although not directly ball related, I struggled through 13 holes, 12 over and not enjoying myself. I decided the time was right to try out the K-sig, things couldn't get much worse. Blocked my first drive with it into a fairway bunker on a 530 yard par 5. Caution to the wind, I played a 3 wood (first time ever from the sand) and flushed it 230 yards. A 70 yard pitch awaited. Solid contact and the ball flew about pin high, and stopped a few feet after landing. After excessive spin frustrating me a couple of times earlier in the round I was pleased to see the ball pretty much drop and stop. Off the putter, the K-sig appears to be a little slower off the face than the Z Star, the first 3 holes with it, I thought I had good speed, only to see them not roll out as much as expected. The last 2 holes I hit a little firmer, and both were good, one that broke 10 yards down and across a steep tier, and a 15 foot one putt on the last. Well struck irons stopped well, even one from deep rough. I played the last 5 holes in even par, 4 greens in regulation, one on the fringe. Distance was very similar to the Z Star, and spin with irons was just right. Once I adjusted to the feel off the putter, I was pretty happy with it on the greens. First impressions are very positive on the Kirkland Signature.
Signing up to get notification of Kirkland golf ball and new equipment reviews. I also am interested in course reviews and strategy. And if anyone can tell me how to hit accurately I will be listening. I play to a 12 Hdcp. I had a Krank 5 driver until yesterday when the head cracked. It was a really cool club that I got with a 10$ raffle ticket. Added 10-15 yards over my previous fitted TM. It will be missedðŸ˜¢
I'm sure I'm behind the times as I haven't been on the forum much lately, and I know it's near blasphemy to mention that name here, but did anyone actually flip through the Golf Digest Hot List issue? I happened to be in the dentist office yesterday and saw a copy of it so I flipped through it. Their take on the Kirkland ball, along with their new testing policy that is eerily similar to MGS', were both...interesting. Maybe this has already been discussed, or not even worth talking about, but to me it was one more example at the lack of transparency across all media. I hope MGS continues to be as transparent as possible in all their future endeavors. I couldn't find any of the actual text found in the magazine online. If anyone cares enough, I'll send some pics when I get home. Yes, I asked the dentist if I could keep the magazine. I was told, "Fine. Nobody reads it anyway."
