Walked 18 holes yesterday morning and when we got to the course, we were informed they were sanding the greens, could not go off before 7am. This past Monday they verticut the greens, which is great.  So I decided to play the TaylorMade Tour Response with the yellow/green stripe. A bit firmer than Pro V1.  MGS golf ball rating showed the Tour Response Stripe at (91), 2nd to Pro V1 at (93).

The ball held up well with sanded greens.  However, the ball did show wear after 18 holes. Thought it interesting how I think the Tour Response held up better with sanded greens, than the Titleist Test Ball did, which I tested back in December with regular non-sanded greens.

Not a clear shot but TM logo was good, not worn. 
The sand used was green sand.  Greens were rolled, watered & rolled nicely with sanded greens.  There were clumps of sand, which did impact the balls keeping on line.   

This photo below shows the ball did get a bit beat up by the greens & also being in two greenside bunkers. Not a normal wear after 18 holes.

The photo below is the other side of the ball from above. You can see how the dimples are worn and dull all over the ball.

Overall, I was very impressed with the ball's reaction on the sanded greens. Even spun the ball about 6ft, off the green into a bunker on a Par 3.  You couldn't beat yourself up over putting.  While the ball did roll nicely most of the time, the sand did impact the roll of the ball.  

Surprised by the good scoring, I shot 1 under on the front, but did shoot two over on the back. I'm going to keep a couple of Tour Response golf balls in my bag.  Not this one though 🤣.

So would you say they were more spinny than the ProV1? I have experinced the ProV1 to be too spinny for me even and moved into the AVX. Hard to play that low spinner in the summer though when I am missing out on that stopping power around the greens. 

Great write up though!

@CorporateGolfRat I wouldn't say the Tour Response is more spinny than the Pro V1.  Matter of fact, one of the reasons I opted to use the Tour Response, I felt using a Pro V1 on sanded greens would result in ball kind of deadening when hitting the green, with a softer shell.  I wanted to play  a firmer ball.  It was between the OnCore Vero X1 & Tour Response Stripe.  Went with the TR Stripe. 

I could tell with a couple of chips the Tour Response ball released and didn't grab as quickly as a Pro V.  Surprised how the Tour Response ball spun on the green. I'm sure the sand contributed to that as well.

Got 18 in today after car duty. The course was packed! My buddies and I had a fun day! Had some yips around approach shots and the greenside chips. Drives were pretty decent though. The baseball grip was epic off the box and in the fairway. Launched my 3w and 5w the best I ever have!

Only had 1 issue today, the group behind us!. They kept hitting into us. Like really close! We couldn't let them play through as there were at least 3 groups in front of us. Waiting for the green to clear, One of the balls ricocheted off my buddies cart,  bounces off and lands in a real mucky edge of the water we were parked next to. We get up on the green, putt, and as we were walking off, we watch the guy reach down for his ball, and falls into the muck.
