First of all this is my first post I LOVE this site. Thanks for having me. I am a titleist lover. I have a SC putter 4 vokey wedges, AP2s 716 917 D2 and a F3, but I dont love the ball. Then I found th

So I was playing golf with one of our pastors this morning and at the first tee he says, have you heard about the ball that's sweeping the nation, I said the Kirkland ball, he said yes, and there's th

I was very happy with the ball today as well. Long and straight. Back nine had a lot of wins and the ball kept its line. Good piercing flight. I also love the snell mtb, the Kirkland is a. It firmer than I like, but at the price I really won't complain.

I'm sometimes a huge cheater and drive a cheaper ball (Nike PD Long or Snell Get Sum) and then will switch to a better ball (like an MTB) if I'm hitting a wedge shot. I realize that isn't exactly tournament legal, but I'm very much a novice and I think it helps me. My friends don't complain because I don't tell them :)

 

 

... I think there are 3 types of golf. Tournament golf. Serious recreational golf. And fun golf. If you are keeping a handicap you most likely play serious recreational golf and switching out balls is against the rules of course. But why not if you are just playing for fun? I certainly would not call it cheating, just a novice learning how to play the game. 

 

... That said, I do think most todays premium balls are just as long off the tee as distance rocks. If it is a "I don't wanna lose an expensive ball off the tee" I get that. But the Kirkland Signature is probably cheaper than economy balls. In the end, using the same ball will help you improve imo ...

First round in the books - gotta say I'm pleasantly surprised. Without data the best I can do is give impressions and opinions based on just one round.

That said, the ball has plenty of length- it certainly doesn't have any less distance than the big names. It didn't seem overly hard to me - not as soft as any of Wilson's offerings (none are), but it definitely in the B330 neighborhood.

Was very surprised by spin - spun one approach backwards about 8 feet - a couple of others had very nice hop and stop spin. Gotta add I was playing Hogan's with C-Tapers - not exactly a high spin wedge shaft.

Be interested to compare the Kirkland to my other favorites - Bridgestone B330, Srixon Z-Star and Wilson Duo-U. I've bee fit into the B330 and really, really like it. That said, I've already bought another 2 dozen Kirklands [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

And this may be heresy - but the Snell balls never really did anything for me. It's a nice ball, but I never did see what all the fuss was about. But then again, folks seem to compare it to the ProV, which I've never really liked either.

Can't really say, other than it' seems fairly similar to the Z Star. It seems very similar to the. 330.

I'm really pumped to try these Kirkland's. There's a Costco opening in our city November 8th so I'll have to pick up a few dozen (even if they are for the spring). I am always interested in spending less for golf balls that I send OB off the tee.

I don't think they are in stores; only online, but I could be wrong.  Free shipping before Friday, so if you are going to get them, save money by ordering now.

I'm beginning to think I might have a ball fetish/addiction. Seems every time a new or improved ball comes around I buy them. Some of the ones pictured I'll never play...ie, the HEX balls. Some I've been given for Christmas, birthdays, tournaments, etc. I even have more stacked out on my bag storage rack. I suppose to satisfy my golf addition buying balls are a relatively inexpensive way to get a fix. All told I have 19 dozen (or partial) dozen balls. Is that a problem?

Yes!

 

I have the six dozen Snell Yellow Get Sum balls that I bought for my wife and I to play this winter (pretty sure we won't use them all); 2 sleeves of the Snell MTB left over from this summer, and a sleeve of PV1 that my wife's nephew gave me with his company's logo.  I also have the odd sleeves of balls that we got at some tournament we played 10 years ago.

... 19 dozen of the same ball or two different favorites is just stocking up. 19 dozen completely different kinds of performing golf balls might, might be a slight problem. ; )

Closer to the z star rather than the z star xv in terms of firmness?

... Finally got in a round with my KS. It was 10-15mph winds and the course was very soft. Performed very well in the wind, especially into the wind. Seemed to be as long as my other favorites the Z Star and TPx. Greenside spin was excellent, but again it was very soft so I will have to see what it is alike on firm and fast greens. 

 

... Loved everything about the ball, other than the feel off the putter. I have a Bettinardi BB2, old school blade 8802 style putter and the Z Star seems to melt into the face. Love the feel of that ball on the greens. The TPx is about as hard as I am comfortable using. The KS is very hard off the putter and I find that very disappointing. At $45 it would stop me from using it. At $29 I would try getting used to the feel by using it exclusively and try to get used to the harder feel. But at $15 the firmness off my putter is irrelevant considering all over aspects of it's performance is excellent based on one round in unusual conditions. Looking forward to playing it on more demanding greens.

The race is on today.  UPS has my Ksig's out for delivery, but I have to leave the house at 2pm for a tee time.

 

I'm guessing they don't get here in time, but if they do I'll be sure to test them out against the Snell MTB.

I wanted to know who makes the Kirkland and found this:

 

"The golf balls, which do appear on the USGA conforming golf ball list, are made by Nassau Golf Co. Ltd. of South Korea. The four-piece ball is intended, we think, to compare with Titleist Pro V1s. It has 360 dimples and is a medium-to-high spin ball around the greens, according to the USGA's conforming ball list."

I know it may be asking a lot, but any chance you could throw a ProV1-X and/or Snell MTB into that mix?
