Intro

Just want to shoutout the mods first to say thanks for giving me the opportunity to test a product that I've been heavily contemplating bagging recently! My name is Kory and I am blessed to call Hawaii my home. I've been playing this great (frustrating mostly) game for most of my life. Started at a young age, kinda fell out of love with golf in high school and college, but since 2017 have been absolutely obsessed. Prior to the birth of my son in 2021, I was playing 9 holes weekly, and 18-hole rounds about twice a month. I'm currently playing 1-2 times a month now, but I am going to have to play and practice more to do this test some justice for the other forum members and readers, sorry wife (not sorry)!

While I was playing more frequently, I got down to a 7.7 HDCP. Now that I'm not playing or practicing as often, I don't submit scores, but typically shoot low 80s with the occasional high-70s round sprinkled in. You know how golf is, you'll go and shoot a solid round for your handicap and think "hey, I'm back I can do this!" and then get absolutely wrecked the next round. Golf be like that sometimes.

My typical ball flight is mid-height and while it is good for keeping the ball out of the tradewinds, I hate it lol. I want to feel the drama of throwing the ball into the clouds and have it strike down on the green from the heavens above. That was overly dramatic but you get the point. Ball go high = more fun (for me) so that's what I look for in a ball. The V1x in the past has been the best ball for me to achieve that, since I'm not a very high speed player, and learned from a recent iron fitting that I'm relatively low spin as well, with my misses being more low spin. So, that's likely why I've gotten along with the V1x for so long since it is the "higher launching, higher spinning" option. Short-game spin is even more important to my game and a successful score, as I'm not really the 8i bump and run guy. I like to see what kind of spin I can get from my lie, and come up with a plan from there when I'm chipping, expecting a certain amount of "check" or "no check." The lack of short game skill is probably why I hover around an 8

When I read the tour seeding post that Toney wrote for the MGS blog, and it mentioned Sheffler talking about the ball being developed with the wind in mind, I immediately got excited. Hopefully not just some marketing stuff they put in his ears, but that's what I'm hoping to see in my testing: is this ball better than previous iterations in the wind? If they make the "best" ball (as in, most played ball at the highest levels of golf) better in the wind (something that I'm dealing with 9/10 rounds) then there's no chance one of these balls doesn't make it into my bag, right? Can't wait to test and see!

Hello, my name is Carl and I’m thrilled to be chosen to test and review these golf balls!  Let me start off with a brief introduction to myself and my game.  I didn’t start playing the game of golf until I was in my mid-30s and even then I didn’t have opportunity to play very often as I spent a lot of time at sea onboard nuclear submarines.  After completing my 20 years with the US Navy, I went back to school and completed my degree in business and finance, spent a few years as a stock broker, but traveled too much on my wife’s career.  I got really active with golf when I retired and after some lessons and golf schools I was able to get from being unable to break 100 to around a 15 handicap player.  I eventually worked my way to a single digit player and have remained so for the last 20+ years, typically between a 6-10 handicap player.  I recently moved to Hot Springs Village AR and am currently playing 3-4 days a week at Diamante CC.

The strength of my game is my putting and my biggest weakness is wedges inside 40 yards.   At the age of 71, I no longer am able to boom the driver out there and, as a result, I’ve become much more proficient with my fairway woods, hybrid, and longer irons.  You can see my bag makeup in my signature.  I do have room for one more club in my bag, but haven’t decided which direction to go with that.  I’m currently gaming MaxFli Tour X golf balls, which replaced the Snell MTB-X that I played prior to that.  Before Snell, I was playing Taylor Made TP-5 X balls.  While I have played and enjoy playing Titleist Pro V1 balls, I choose not to do so because everyone seems to play them and I like being able to easily determine which ball is mine and avoid the penalties of hitting the wrong ball.  I do not have access to launch monitors, so my testing will be based on real course experiences.  I will do my best to give you an honest and unbiased review of the 348 and 388 Proto balls that I received, comparing the two balls, as well as comparing them against my current gamer and a few other balls that I have in my arsenal.

Titleist White Box ProV1 and ProV1x Prototype 

Official MGS Member Testing By daviddvm

 

Introduction

Hi guys and gals, great to be back reviewing for you all here at my home for golf MGS! 

I live in a suburban city just outside Houston Texas. So this is a great time of year in this area to play golf. I should be able to play consistently throughout our testing period. I’ve played golf since junior high school. But I have only been able to play frequently and consistently the last 15 years of my 64 years! I’m 6’02” and weigh 200 lb. 

This will be my third time involved in ball testing. The first ball testing I was involved in was 2019 after winning a Wilson D7 driver and a dozen Wilson Professional balls here in a MGS Masters Contest. This was an unofficial test but gave me my introduction to being a tester here at MGS.

In 2020 I was fortunate enough to be a tester for Bridgestone White Box Prototype Tour B RXS balls. I played the Bridgestone Tour B RXS up until this year. But changed to the Titleist -ProV1x to start 2022 after seeing the results of the most recent MGS Ball Tests. I will be evaluating these prototypes by their performance in my bag during actual play as tracked by Arccos. I have used arccos to track my play since 2019. I’m currently a 10 handicap, I drive the ball 240-250 on average, my ball flight is high fade hitting above 50% fairways, my area that needs the most work is approach with mid irons. I will start my testing with the new Titleist Proto balls this weekend with a little putting on the back porch BirdieBall Outdoor Putting Green.  

Prototypes with my current gamer in the middle.

Introduction:

To introduce myself, I am in my late 30s and I have been playing golf for about 9 years. A few years ago I decided if I was going to play golf I might as well take lessons and try my best to be as good as I could be or otherwise why spend the time playing. I currently play in the Southeast where almost all the greens and fairways are Bermuda. I don’t play blazing fast greens but as the weather gets colder the Bermuda will go dormant and, typically our greens will speed up. We get a decent amount of rain as well so at times the courses can play quite soft. Generally, not a ton of wind. For me, I need a golf ball that feels fairly soft on pitch shots as I like that feedback but doesn’t sacrifice a ton of ball speed to do so. I tend to prefer golf courses that are more generous off the tee (rather than penal) and so I can often go 3-4 rounds without losing a ball (that is not me bragging but more of a comment on the relative difficulty of the courses I play) so durability is important to me. I am fairly mid spin so I don’t typically look to add or subtract much spin from what I do. I have historically played balls that are middle of the road spin-wise and compression wise (currently Snell MTB Black) but have also dabbled with softer balls (also will play Taylormade Tour Response on occasion). Lately I have been trying to use up the high end balls that I found throughout the season so I have played Pro V1s, TP5s and Chromesofts all in the past month. 

Stats (as of a week ago):

Driver Swing Speed: 102-105 mph
Average Carry / Total : 250 yds / 270 yds
Launch Angle: 13-17 degrees
Spin Rate with Driver: 2400-2600 rpm
Handicap: 4.5 – 6.5 (I’m a bit volatile)
Baseline numbers with the Snell MTB Black which is my current gamer:

image.png.10fd942bf7a20562a2cd2dee3803fcf1.png

Typical ball flight with driver is a draw and same with irons, wedges are straight or a slight push. I hit the ball mid flight with both driver and irons. Typical miss and issue I struggle with is spinning out from the top and hitting wipey, weak shots to the right. Per strokes gained, the strengths of my game against someone of a similar handicap are Driving and Putting and weaknesses are short game and approach (specifically approaches greater than 150 yds).

Introduction 10/30/22:

 

First thing’s first it is a privilege to be selected as a tester once again for MGS and a huge thank you to the moderators for the opportunity. This is my 2nd time testing golf balls for MGS where previously it was a blind golf ball test which had myself and fellow testers see if we could determine the difference between 2 different Titleist golf balls then  answer some questions afterwards. Enough about my past experiences let's dive into a little bit about me and my current game. 

 

My name is Zach and I reside in NJ while playing 75% of my rounds at courses in Somerset County. It’s a great mix of courses that has brought me to my current 11 handicap with my biggest downfall being putting and strength being iron play. I play the Pro V1 currently after switching mid season from the Bridgestone Tour BX. I just enjoy the softer feel and slightly lower spin a bit more and it allows me to optimize my iron play. Since Iron play is my strength I like to play a ball that enhances that rather than the conventional method of green to tee.

 

My current ball flight is high but penetrating. Shots hit a high apex but get there at a steady rate and don’t balloon on me. I have a huge privilege of having access to trackman through a part time job at an indoor simulator facility on top of my day job as a mechanical engineer. This is going to play a huge part of my review as the golf season in NJ starts to come to an end soon. Below is a small but very fair representation of my PW, 7i, and Dr averages and what I will be comparing the 2023 versions to. I’m really looking forward to getting the testing underway and am so excited to begin the process!

First off would like to thank the moderators and powers that be for the opportunity to test the new Pro V1’s. For a little about me, I am in my mid 30’s, currently located in central California, but do travel down closer to LA frequently for work. I am a chemical engineer during my day job as a part of the technical research and development division, so data analysis and numbers are kind of my thing. I started golfing in college, but took an extended break for about 13 years until I picked it back up last year. Marriage, moving, new jobs, kids, and everything else just didn’t leave time. Now that things are more stable in my life, and with a greater understanding of my own personal mental health, I’m back to taking better care of myself. For me, that includes making time to go to the gym and more golf.

In terms of my game, I’m a work in progress. I’m currently sitting around a 15 handicap, partially from not playing enough, and partially from throwing a grenade or two (or the occasional handful) at my scorecard each round. Previously, I had been typically alternating golf balls periodically trying to find something I like. A few that I have liked in the past are the Srixon Z Star XV, the TM Tour Response, and the Bridgestone Tour B RX. I tend to hit the ball fairly high with my irons, but the driver has been giving issues with low trajectory recently. I would like to find a ball that will give me a bit of extra height with the driver, without ballooning my irons even higher. I also like having access to greenside spin as my course has some pretty small greens in places. My personal swing problems leave me in some, let’s call them, interesting, spots so having a range of options for the shot is important to me. Recently, my miss has been the low left pull off the tee, or the push right with the irons. These are the kinds of things that I have started looking at as I make investments into my game.

I recently just did a full bag fitting and replaced all of my 15 year old clubs, so now I’m looking to eliminate another variable and find a ball to play all the time. Despite being an analytical, numbers type at work, I am very much a feel player when it comes to golf. I need a ball that feels good off the face, and most importantly, performs consistently so that I can play my game instead of feeling like I’m fighting the equipment. There is nothing quite as demoralizing to me as hitting a shot that feels and looks good off the tee, just to see it suddenly drop out of the air like it got shot.

Hell yeah! This is the second time I have been able to do a test for the MGS guys and I’m really looking forward to it. A little about me: Growing up, I rode dirt bikes and BMX bikes. The only times I ever golfed was at the local par 3 course and that was just to screw around a little bit. If I ever got to play at a normal course, my favorite part of golfing was driving the carts. 😆

My Dad grew up on Congressional Country Club but he was more interested in spending his time at the swimming pool than on the course. His dad and brothers were the golfers of the family. As I grew up and got to start playing golf for work, that’s when I fell in love with the game. I wish now that I would have had the opportunity to play more as a kid but I don’t know if I would have been able to handle it mentally. I was more into going fast on something with a motor or catching air on something with 2 wheels. Now that I’m absolutely hooked on the game, I play once or twice a week with a regular group of friends. It is the highlight(s) of my week. My 13 year old son is getting interested in playing golf so he and I will start taking lessons together this fall/winter.

When I first started taking this seriously, I had no choice but to play the Kirkland golf balls because I was so terrible that I couldn’t afford to pay $4 per ball for a better ball because I lost too many per round. Because of the MGS guys, I wouldn’t ever play balls I found on the course or in the water, and never play refurbished balls. As the years have gone by, I am at the point where I rarely lose a golf ball unless it’s because I shorted it over the water. I can finally afford to pay and play with quality golf balls now. 😬 

My favorite balls right now are the Taylormade Tour Response, Titleist AVX, and the Titleist ProV1. The key to a great game for me is keeping it in play off the tee so higher spin balls can accentuate my fade and sometimes turn it into a slice. We will see how the new V1X cooperates with my swing.

My plan for these new balls is as follows:

Step 1: Compare them side by side with the current V1 and V1X on the chipping green. See if one seems to spin more/less or if I can even see a trajectory difference. 

Step 2: Take them to my local Par 58 course where I can get lots of iron shots in. I’ll go in the afternoon when no one is behind me so I’m not holding up pace of play.

Step 3: They go in the bag on a real course and see how they perform off the driver.

Looking at the balls side by side with the previous versions, I don’t honestly see any difference between them when it comes to dimply pattern. It was mentioned earlier that wind resistance was supposed to be better in these, I’ll be very surprised if they are any different as that is usually a dimple pattern thing. Time will tell as we do get a fair amount of windy days out here in Vegas.

Hey Spies!  This is Mr. Mushball, a.k.a. Morgan Sackett.  I'm happy to be helping provide a review of the new Titleist 2023 V1 and V1x balls for you.

I am a relatively new golfer.  I have played golf since around 2000 when I bought a set of Wilson X-31 Tour clubs ($200 with the bag) mostly so I could go to the range and play a few rounds a month at a local short course with some work buddies.  Took a long time off with a round here or there once every few years or so.  Then, you know, COVID.  Was playing pool for 12 years before that and indoor sports weren't good, so we took up golf seriously in 2020.I've since become hooked and decided it would be more fun if I could actually get better at it.  I've taken some lessons, watched way too much bad, or should I say mixed, advice on YouTube, and played a ton since picking it up seriously.  I've played pretty much every weekend since I started, and try to sneak in as much time on course in between as I think I can get away with.  Don't get out to the range much though, still could use quite a bit of work on my swing mechanics.  I started hitting in the 150's, now am closing in on breaking 110 with breaking 100 regularly in sight next season.  Currently sitting at a 37.6 handicap.

The name Mr. Mushball comes from playing year round.  I'm in Portland, Oregon and the winter weather here in the Pacific Northwest is well... wet.  Lots of mud October through May.  January and February are usually pretty dry, but the ground is cold and may well have other stuff on top.  Since I play year round, this is what I think of as "normal" conditions.

So, what kind of player am I really? Still very much a novice.  I don't hit very far, though I have improved a lot since I started.  I've gained 40+ yards on my P-wedge through technique and technology updates.  I have gone from the X-31's to Wilson Staff Di-9's, to now Callaway Rouge ST Max Irons.  Have quite a few mishits on my driver, but play hybrids relatively well.  Won't touch woods yet.  I'd say I tend to have a pretty high ball flight when hit well.  Generally I play Top Flight Gamer HD balls.  For an inexpensive ball I like how they fly and how they feel.  But, I'll also play anything I can pick up if I run out of those.  I only buy balls once a year or so, and as a very high handicapper I lose them quite a lot so don't want to spend a ton on balls.  The question here is would these do anything for me that might make me change my mind?

So grateful to be chosen as a tester once again. going to get to put these through some colder weather testing as well as plenty of trackman. The biggest thing I am hoping to see is some more greenside spin if possible.

I plan on doing a good amount of short game testing at Neshanic Valley since they have the massive short game area as well as 2 practice holes. I would be down for meeting up and doing some side by side testing one day.

Love me some Neshanic Valley!  Regardless of the test, we should meet up for a round somewhere before the weather gets too cold!

Hi folks, a little about me:

My name is Jerry, I'm a married father of three living about an hour west of Chicago.  My son, Owen, and I took up golf last year and have been hooked ever since.  I'm hovering near a 20 handicap.  I play regularly but am still very much a hack.  This is my second MGS test.  Last year I had the opportunity to test the ShotScope V3 watch ( https://forum.mygolfspy.com/tests/22-shot-scope-v3/?do=findReview&review=62 -spoiler: its pretty cool). 

Excited about the opportunity to test some new balls.  This will be interesting.  Midwestern weather is tricky this time of year and I don't know how many balls I will get for the test.  Can't afford to lose them all on the first hole!  Might be more indoor testing than outdoor?  I've never had a gamer ball; I've played a wide variety of balls this year and am currently in the camp that, for me, the ball doesn't matter too much.  Will this change my mind?
