The only yellow balls that I hit are on the practice range.

Me too, right now.  I have some Titleist Tour Softs in Yellow for winter, but will have to compare with  the MaxFli Tour Yellow for cold weather performance and visibility.

I know I’m repeating myself but I only use Yellow Balls.  ProV1x for real play and Tour Soft on Execs.  
For some reason as I’ve gotten a “bit” older the color ball I can follow the best in the air is Yellow.

The Tour Speed is another ball I hit well and a more affordable than ProV1x is a good alternative for me BUT I was having trouble finding them in Yellow.

Ha! I'm only 37 and I switched to yellow last year. Though part of this is from memories of playing with my dad as a kid. In the late 90s I only remember stuff like Pinnacle & other distance balls coming in yellow, so those are the ones my dad gave me. I used to play them all the time. Now it's nice to see that they are making the better balls in yellow too. I play the Z-Star (hope next year they release the Diamond in yellow), and I have 2 doz of the Maxfli ready to go.

I played Tuesday (only chip & putt) with 3guys who had played white balls.  On a lot of Tee shots they couldn’t follow the flight of their balls!! 
Hopefully I’ll be able to full swing in a couple of weeks.

I only play yellow too as the majority of seniors at my course play white which allows me to identify my ball easy.  Plus I don't have to kick some old coot in the arse trying to claim my ball.

Purchased Foot Joy Tour Alpha shoes from Amazon, they have (2) colors discounted at this time.

The black model, and the white/gray model are about $17.00 less than MSRP pricing found anywhere else, including Foot Joy website.

These are the number 1 rated spiked shoe from the MGS testing.

At the risk of sounding crazy 😆 but there is something slightly psychologically calming in playing a yellow ball. 🤷🏻‍♂️

When I can play again with Full Swing I want to give the new Maxfli a go.

I did a chip & putt 9 Tuesday and tried a 3/4 swing PW around 100 yards and didn’t go well, knee wasn’t happy.

A few things in the last couple of weeks. 

Acids Gel Duo BOA spiked shoes. Love these shoes

I bought a tripod/selfie stick. The reason for this purchase is I also bought some online golf lesson. trying to video my swing and propping my PH on my golf bag was a HUGE PITA. $15 and should be set for the next video.

Got a sweet transfusion polo and a really nice quarter zip hoodie for fall golf.

Love the zip hoodie.  That's the same polo I got in Kiawah when I played.  Really good looking!  Unfortunately, Peter Millar does not fit me great so I don't think I'll ever wear it.

... How many ways can we say it? It isn't if it is when? Resistance is futile? Money only has value if you spend it? I have been lusting after a Graphite Design AD-IZ in SR flex (between stiff and regular) ever since my fitting last summer.  Ebay "make an offer" sucked me in but I made a low offer and the #*(!@$ guy accepted!  🙄  No m ore excuses for my driving but I have to decide do I want to put it in my LTDx Black Ltd Edition or my Stealth? Gonna compare either one to my Sim2 with an AD-MT SR flex. 



Picture 2 of 6

That sounds like an awesome shaft for either head.

Nothing. Bought nothing…

I have a challenge w my hybrids in that they go straight for the first 150 yards or so, and then make a big left turn. Put the blinkers on and turn sharp….

Anyway, with the Cobra challenge (lite) that just got posted, that sent me to their web site in a long time and I saw they have a new iteration of their one length hybrids.  So I called up my guy at Club Champion in WestDesMoines to see if he had any heads in, he did, and off I went. An hour and six or seven different shaft combos later I walked out w my original set of hybrids. 

Nothing had a tighter shot pattern/dispersion circle and nothing flew higher (second goal for stopping power).   Sort of happy.  Glad I didn’t just rush in somewhere to buy the off the rack clubs, but took the time to find out.   Gotta fix it w practice, can’t buy it. 
 

Side note, very interesting just how heavy the hybrid heads are without the shaft.
