So I did this today, and it was a very valuable 30 minutes.  Loved every minute of it.   Titleist is offering virtual golf ball fittings for free.  You get a 30 minute  zoom call with a member from th

If i get the sample balls, of course I will find a way to lose them almost immediately.

Had my conference call with David Bustamante this morning.  Great chat and honestly wish those could happen a little more frequently during the work week! Started off talking about my game, since

So my round got washed out by the ridiculous weather we've had over the past few days in Houston...

But I did go to my GC Quad hookup and run some prelim numbers on the three different golf balls...my current gamer the Bridgestone Tour B X, and the two recommended TItleist golf balls, the Left Dash Pro V1x and AVX. 

I hit 10 shots with each club and kept the 5 best of each ball. These are the averages with my Mizuno JPX 921 SEL Gap wedge, 7 iron and my TM SIM 10.5* w/ Oban Kiyoshi Black 65 05 flex. 

2065787124_BallTest2021.JPG.a8b978b1ccff347ff57a51061c7aae4c.JPG

Now keep in mind this was my first pass at the left dash and AVX and this was indoors. The Left Dash and Bridgestone Tour B X felt about the same as far as firmness goes. The AVX was noticeably softer in feel...and we can all see what softer equates to. 

I will say one thing about the lower spinning Left Dash and AVX, they are not as accurate off the driver than the higher spinning Bridgestone. Sure, they fly a long way and roll out well, but the Tour B X was much easier to keep in the fairway. 

And if I'm going to choose a ball based on driver stats, I will be going against what Drew recommended and I'm 100% confident he knows more about what to look in a golf ball than I do. 

I'm curious to see how they perform out on the course once it dries out some. I'm actually looking for a lower spin ball with good green side spin control so I'm intrigued by the Titleist offerings.

A ball should be picked on what works best all around. Picking one based on one type of shot whether it be off the tee or on the short game won’t find the ball thats best for you other than for that particular shot.

Maybe my wording was a bit confusing...

I have no desire to pick a ball solely based on driver performance. My initial impression between the golf balls on a launch monitor showed very similar carry yards but at different launch windows and spin characteristics in the short and mid iron test. Where I saw the balls start to separate from one another was off the tee. 

I will still give these balls the proper test out on the course, but just solely looking at ball characteristics on a launch monitor show a very similar ball on the wedge and 7 iron but they raise an eyebrow off the driver.

This is what jumped out to me. Some mild differences on the 7i but the driver was pretty significant. Based on those numbers, the left dash looks like a clear winner to me. BUT golf isn't played on a sim; really interested to hear how your on-course testing goes!

That was among the first things David brought up in our conversation.  Of course, I already knew this because I spend time on MGS 👍.  I still haven't done the test he suggested; ProV1's vs. Velocity from about 30-40 yards. He's pretty sure I'll see a difference at this level of ball design/construction/attributes.

I completely agree with this comment.  I base the ball I play on a few criteria and the ball has to meet each of these.

1) Soft feel off the putter.  I loved the feel of balata off a Ping Zing or original Wilson 8813 back in the day and this feel is ingrained in my golfer's soul.  A ball must have a soft feel of the putter, never clicky, or I simply cannot play it.  (Yes, mind game).

2) I must be able to generate spin on shots within 60-80 yards and in.  If I am hitting a punch wedge into a green I have to know if, struck correctly, the ball will take a hop or two and check up.  The ball must generate decent spin on flop shots.  In short, I have to have the ability to control the spin on well struck shots.

3) The ball must be able to hold the flight into the wind and not have a tendency to wander.  I often play shaped shots (draws and fades) and sometimes will play a shot into the wind.  I do not want a ball that produces too much spin off woods and long/mid irons that would be a detriment to the shaped shot I play.  I don't want to play a ball that balloons up tee'd up or from the fairway.

 

I have found a ball that meets all that criteria but it is not made from Titleist.  I was a Titleist player from essentially the time I started playing golf (or very shortly after starting) until 2014.  I had tried other balls but nothing replaced the Titleist Tour Balata, Titleist Prestige, Titleist Professional, Titleist ProV1 until I found a ball that worked better for me.  Am I willing to try the new ProV1?  Certainly.  I am always looking for a ball that works for my game but in the past 6 1/2 years I have not had to.
