Handicap=9

Swing Speed= 110-115

Favorite Wilson staff player: Paddy. I watched him win the PGA at Oakland Hills and I like the fact that he just grinds all the time. He's had a few lean years lately but it was great to see him win earlier this year!

Handicap : 7

 

Swing Speed : 120 - 125

 

Speed varies to what type of play I am in.

 

Scrambles will definitely be faster.

 

I play a Srixon z star in stroke play. This has been the best spin ball 100 yards in that I have tried so far. 

 

I play the Srixon Marathon in scrambles off the tee and Srixon z star for approaches.

 

I would not have a problem with switching, if they would out perform my current balls.

 

 

 

I loved watching Payne Stewart play. I was young when watching. I remember him as a smiling, legit golfer. He was liked by many.

I think the Wilson page is wrong about the '51 PGA -- Sam Snead won it, and he was a Wilson staffer.

Makes sense because I thought the only major Hogan won in 51 was the US open. It threw me off a little seeing him on the list but I wasn't going to argue lol

Handicap of 8.  Swing speed @95.  Who else but Arnold Palmer. 

 

I have played the Duo and it is a pretty good ball.  I am currently playing the previous generation FG Tour and I really like it.

I am still a card carrying permanent member of Arnie's Army. I remember watching him prowl the fairways at Champions GC in Houston in the 1960's listening to the roars of the gallery.

Yeah, he stopped playing the PGA after his accident, since it was still a match play event back then and they'd play 36 holes a day.  Legs couldn't take it...
