Lol is this the PGATSS next to the Fairway Market in Westbury? I remember the first time driving by there and going woah what is this place??? I took my parents there and I think we spent like 4 hours in there our first visit.

Yes, but my original order was made online ... after zero email/phone *Main*, not store, customer service a few helpful Ho's suggested contacting the store, where as mentioned the managers did try to help out.

But yeah those places are very carefully arranged to be HUGELY EYE-CATCHING DISTRACTING ENTICING 😉 to we .. uhhh .. we occasionally impulsive types... 😆

In fact - may be taking a ride over there with my honey this afternoon ... been talking about upgrading her gear, and wanna look at some of those fun SGI sets from Cobra or Cleveland or (whatever else we may see there?).

Soo... How many putters is too many? 😬 Or shoes? 

Decided to hunt down an EVNRoll ER10 Outback. Mostly out of stock direct (except 33"), but my local shop just happened to have one (could've gotten it shipped from Golf Galaxy and a couple others too). Putting has been terrible the last couple years, so just trying to switch things up and play with a few different styles - I'm hopeful with this one. And as an added bonus, the Michaelangelo cover from a few posts back fits better on this than it does on the Guerin. (Got some of the new Srixon Tour Divides to help with putting practice too - feeling like a total headcase). 

Definitely didn't need more shoes, but the G4 looked awesome and, after one round, are my new favorite shoes. The NB...it's pair #4 of NB spikeless shoes, which are my top choice for resort days and/or walking 36. 

Also pictured but not new purchases: the Guerin (with Putt Dots), an original Rife 2 Bar, Pins & Aces Joker driver cover, and the homemade Kim Jong Un hybrid cover.

I just ordered 5 dozen TP5X PIX practice balls, they were out of the regular TP5 Pix. I know they're going to be a bit firmer compression wise, but I just really love the PIX pattern because it makes it a whole lot easier to spot my ball and at $22.99 a dozen for tour balls, it's a great deal.

... Such a good ball with higher launch and lower spin. Interestingly there are still those that prefer the firmer compression of the last version of the TP5x that you just bought. Personally I loved them but I prefer firmer over softer. The new TP5x is a little softer but still somewhat firm. I also love the Pix for the same reason, so easy to identify.

TaylorMade has quickly become my favorite ball, and I've tried a few. Some folks are club ho's, I like to experiment with different golf balls. The TP5 line has impressed me with their distance, spin, and how they hold their line in the wind. My course is fairly open and the prevailing wind can be brutal, but this ball performs so well for me.

I played the TaylorMade Tour Preferred and had about 100 of them given to me (new) in the 2016 model when they first came out.  I really liked the way they played. They were replaced by the TP5 a year or later. I ran out about a year ago. Probably shouldn't  have given so many away! Hopefully I can get a bunch of the new model the same way. I haven't tried the Pix yet. Not sure if my eyes will like it.

I'll chime in as an MTB-X user - they are my ball of choice. Very long off the driver for me, fine in the wind and they seem to stop well enough on the greens. I've been playing Srixon Z-Star XVs to start the year (had a sleeve to finish) and I'm ready to go back to the MTB-Xs. To me the are just a touch softer than the XVs, and I'm having a tough time getting the XVs to stop on greens at the moment.

That being said, my two best career rounds (by a good margin) were both with the Z-Star XVs, so take that for what it is worth. I also think the cover of the Srixons is slightly more durable than that of the Snells.

I wish the Kirklands were more durable and spun less.  They rip so easily and spin way too much for my game.

Anyone played the Bridgestone Tour X Diamond?  I’ve never heard of a Diamond edition.

I’ve got a coupon to Golfballs.com and may try some.  They’re calling them ‘diamond’ (maybe a mistake).

... Being old school I felt the same way about a Pix ball. But I was given a sleeve and was surprised at how fast I got used to them. I love walking down the fairway and seeing 4 balls but instantly know which one is mine. You may not feel the same but I think they are worth a shot at that price.

The XV is a solid ball and one of the longest I've ever played. My longest drive came when I was playing one. That being said, I had two drives this weekend with the TP5 that came up less than 5 yards short of that and I still haven't hit the jump in SuperSpeed training.
