I swing the driver at about 95-100 mph and carry about 260 yards.
I slice the ball so anything that would minimize that would help The most important thing I am looking for in a ball would be 150 yards and in, I like something that feels kind of soft off of the putter (I use Evnroll er5) and I don't mind some roll out on pitch shots.
I use M6 irons
I want to spend no more than 20-30$ a dozen. Currently I use the Srixon Q star tour as I get 40% off of all Srixon equipment for college club golf. However, I would say my favorite golf ball at the moment is chrome soft with the truvis pattern, it just feels very solid. Should I switch to those and buy them off of lostgolfballs or should I stick to my Srixon balls, or anything else. Recommendations and explanations are greatly appreciated, I just want to stop thinking about my equipment.
Since there aren’t near ranges where I live and courses memberships and fees are expensive, I have searched for alternatives.
Found the famous Birdie balls and the Almost Golf Balls and yesterday I came across this new ball: Sci-Core practice ball: here’s a link to a video of them: https://youtu.be/sjVC1mCJEF4
I have to admit they look good at least. They seem to be similar to the Almost Golf Balls.
Has anyone from this forum tried them? Would love to see your reviews and experiences
Is it fair to call them the No. 1 iron, driver, wedge in golf?
Some notes below from a press release on just how domimate Titleist is on tour this year.
PGA: It was a Titleist Brand Ambassador 1-2-3 finish at the regular season-ending Wyndham Championship, where Titleist Brand Ambassador J.T. Poston earned his first career PGA TOUR victory … Poston finished one shot clear of Webb Simpson and two better than Ben An … Viktor Hovland (Pro V1), finished solo 4th, another shot back … Closing with a career-best eight-under par 62 en route to a tournament record-tying 22-under 258 victory total, Poston became the first player since 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse … Simpson fired a final round 65 to secure his runner-up finish for the second straight week, while An, who held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, closed with a 67.
>Eleven of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, and so did every other player who finished in the top 35 … That’s 34 of the top 35 finishers teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x with so much on the line at the PGA TOUR’s regular season finale.
> Poston’s win advances the 2018-19 PGA TOUR victory total for Titleist golf ball players to 23, nearly four times the nearest competitor (6) and more than all other golf balls combined … A total of 120 (77%) players teed up a Titleist at the Wyndham Championship, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 14.
> What’s in the Titleist Bags of the top three finishers at the Wyndham Championship:
J.T. Poston: Pro V1x, TS3 (9.5) driver, TS2 (15) fairway metal, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 718 AP2 (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (46), gap (50), sand (55) and lob (60) wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo putter.

> For the second time this season, the Titleist brand swept all eight major equipment categories on both the PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry Tour in the same week ... It is an achievement that had never been accomplished until Titleist made history by sweeping the Travelers Championship and Wichita Open in June ... The eight major tee-through-green equipment categories include golf balls, drivers, fairway metals, hybrids, utility irons, irons, wedges and putters ... The recently introduced T100 irons were the most played single model at the event with 15 sets in play, while the TS3 driver was the field favorite with 34.
> At the Wyndham Championship, Titleist was the top choice across every category for the 11th time this year ... The other tournaments in which Titleist has topped every major equipment category include: 3M Open, Rocket Mortgage Classic, Travelers Championship, AT&T Byron Nelson, Wells Fargo Championship, Corales Puntacana Championship, Valspar Championship, Honda Classic, Farmers Insurance Open and Sony Open in Hawaii ... This marks the fourth time on the Korn Ferry Tour that Titleist has swept the counts.
As I was getting back into golf this year and was unsure that I would be able to actually golf at all due to a back injury, I wanted to get a bag that was inexpensive and light. I like to walk and would be using a push cart so I figured the lighter and cheaper the better (I was wrong). Golf Town had a sale and I picked one of these up for $100 Canadian.
I played about 8 rounds with this bag, walked them all with a push cart.
First off, it was indeed light! It weighs only about 4lbs without anything in it. The first thing I noticed though when I put clubs in it and slung it around my back was how unbalanced the bag was. Because it was made so light there wasn't enough weight in the bottom and the top of the bag kept tilting over and my clubs would slide out. Really, really annoying. I tried adjusting the strap but it didn't help much.
The pockets were actually pretty well done and easy to access. The cooler was fairly small but big enough to fit a couple of bottles in. The ball pocket was large enough and so were the sides. You can get all your gear in there that you need. The Umbrella hook was pretty much useless and the tee pocket was pretty small. Otherwise the storage was very good.
The club divider was a complete disaster. It's a 14 way divider and it seems the devil himself designed it. My clubs would snag, every...single...time I tried to pull one out. I broke off 3 game golf tags trying to get clubs out. As you can see my clubs look more like that tin in your kitchen where you shove all the big spoons and spatulas into. Clubs were banging into each other constantly and there was immediate regret buying the bag, mostly because of this.
There was a nice handle for grabbing the bag though and it is easy to load in and out of your car.
Weight: 7/10 (loses points because it's so unbalanced when carried)
If Wilson could fix the terrible divider and balance issue they'd have a pretty good bag here. I have recently bought a Ping Pioneer to replace it. I will review that soon!
