HA! I'm the exact opposite. I'll put something in my shopping cart and then just sit on it for weeks/months. I had figured out how to get a new set of irons for net-out-of-pocket $85 and I still needed a month to pull the trigger. My wife gets mad at me about it because I'll just keep bringing it up. "I dunno. Do you think I should buy them?" "Oh my lord, Greg, buy the #@$^# clubs. I told you that 2 weeks ago."

This sounds so much like me it hurt 🤣

So I totally took the bait.. I just happened to be looking for a swim floatie for my 3 year old at Target and the next aisle over was the golf section. Not sure I've ever bought golf equipment at Target. Well I saw a box of the same balls in the Ball Lab test and figure for $20 I couldn't go wrong. The marketing definitely seems to be targeting the annual work golf tournament golfer who wouldn't know any better. Think PXG meets top flight.. had I not seen the MGS release, I wouldn't have thought twice about them. 

I'm thinking maybe I got the ball that MGS missed?..

It was 1 out of an entire box but I don't think I've ever had a ball this $hitty come out of any box of TP5x's or Z stars. 

This ball seemed to have a huge indentation, a cart path rash, and is completely missing about 12 dimples on one side. I would consider each of these a major inconsistency and to have 3 very different defects on 1 ball is super strange.. and concerning.

@azstu324, that's not the DC Ball, that's the standard Cut Blue, which as noted in the 2019 ball test had some of these issues. The DC comes in a White Box and I've never seen them at Target.

Nice call out! Thx for that. Shows how very little I know about this brand. I think these will be going back. 

I'm on vacation and brought 3 sleeves of my TP5x's and think I'll be fine for 2 rounds.
