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. 

IMG_0963.jpg.29999ff70e73ab51470689738acd0482.jpg

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.

Drove the ball really well today and where I wanted it to go IF I was focused on a target. If not I hit the right side of the fairway. Full swing irons and hybrids were spot on. Shots from 90 and in were the bane of my game once again. No birdies, 1 double, and the rest pars and bogies.  70 to 90 yards cost me 4 strokes at least. We pick the last house tomorrow and the citrus picking season ends. I love the fruit and that is a fact, but it cuts out my short game practice plan. Tomorrow at about 10:30 in the morning, that ends!

Sounds like we had similar issues yesterday with getting on the green.  So many four letter words were used... GOLF wasn't one of them! 😆 🤣 😂

Sim Round …

IMG_0034.jpeg.2aa7fb0a4e35b15772d3d1338f23424d.jpeg

I had an early blow-up at the third hole. Hitting a tree then going out of bounds threw me off for the rest of the hole. But afterward I settled down.

Overall: 

  • Six pars
  • Nine bogeys
  • Nine fairways found
  • Six greens in regulation

Ended with a 92. Earbuds are a blessing. Today’s soundtrack album …

Had a stellar 9 holes today. Decided to take on the 9 holes that plagued me yesterday. Course was super busy, and only had a few chances to record. 

I shot a personal best today too! 

I did have a couple go OB, and 1 hit a tree and disappeared into an open pines area. Only lost 2 balls though. I may have to give the srixon divides a good look. I played it a good bit of the round before the tree fairy disappeared it.

BASEBALL grip is really working well for me so far too. I still use interlock on 9i through wedges though.

Had a very weird day for my first tournament of the year.  Harding continues to be a golf course that causes me issues.  44/44 93.  My last three rounds at Harding have been 91, 97, 93.  Maybe it just doesn't fit my game or its gotten into my head.  First time all year that I haven't been able to hold onto my goal of having fun.  Lots of frustration, some bad luck, and a few silly mental mistakes. 49/44 93.  The good news is that I can identify every stroke that I gave away and 90% of it was not being able to string a good tee shot and approach shot together.  I'd either hit a great tee shot then a terrible approach shot followed by a third onto the green or I'd grossly mishit a tee shot, hit a good recovery, then hit the green with the third.  It was intensely frustrating capped off by a wildly inconsistent day on the greens (partially because of wildly inconsistent greens with though pin positions).  Green speed varied wildly from one hole to the next.  It did not help that I was trying to one-putt most of them.  🤬

Venting aside, most of my issue was the pressuring myself to hit a good shot.  Something I've been very good at avoiding this year.  When I remembered to relax I was fine, when I was too worried about the shot or putt I didn't.  Too much going on in my head and not playing loose.   It was a very distinct contrast to how I've been playing lately... relaxed with confidence and an attitude that sometimes I'll hit bad shots.  If I can the solution is probably to make myself step off the ball when I'm thinking too much or feeling too much pressure.   I also need to focus on the positive.  I made some great putts, and hit a lot of very good shots.  I just lost sight of that in my frustration.  

I was feeling a little down after the round, so I went and saw Dune 2 and it was awesome.  So at least there was that.  😄

Finally back on a full course. Striking the ball really well generally, so obviously I ran out of fairway on the dogleg first. My driving was A+ today, but my putting was C- at best, plus a couple of chunky chips of muddy winter lies. Still, back out on the course and my recovering ankle seems to have held up OK…but I’ll really only know that tomorrow

Round results below. If I played a bit smarter instead of trying hero shots I probably could’ve shaved 5 to 7 strokes. But I had a 296, 299, 300, and 306 total drive distance out of the LTDx with smash factors between 1.47 and 1.49. Super pleased with that addition. Had some iffy swings with the irons but all in all I’m happy with where I’m at on the 1st day of March!

A cold and windy round of golf this morning at GreatLife Golf and Fitness here in Lebanon, MO.  I teed off at 9:30 with layers of clothing, a balaclava, and winter gloves.  At the 13th hole I shed the balaclava, vest, and gloves.  It was an official round, because I hit a second ball on occasion, but I shot 74 with the first ball.  I had 2 birdies, 2 bogeys, 1 double bogey, and 13 pars.

Another 9 on my recovering ankle out of the way. Shot 40 on a par 33 which is not great, but doing it with a quadruple bogey on the card does make it feel like an improvement, and the pair of birdies show that. Still striking the ball really well with my irons. Really need to improve around the green though

Good morning spy's, 

Scored well yesterday 73, tied for 1st in the "breakfast club" at my home club, but didn't play well, probably had 4 out of 5 up and downs, and sunk 2 long putts for birdie that kept me in the game.

Hit a great 200 yd. second shot into a long par 4, and a beautiful bunker shot to 2 inches on 15 to keep the round going, but have some work to do off the tee and approach shots.

Something to work on this coming week.
