Re: Bawlz

AVX stands for Alternate to V and X. It is marketed as the same level ball as the Pro V or ProV 1 X with some different characteristics, as I outlined above. Hence, the price is the same. Sorry. I bet you like them when you try them. I bet I like them too but not more than my existing balls which m...

Re: Bawlz

BTW - I will probably try these things as I will invariably need a sleeve and they will probably be available in yellow and my Bridgestones won't. Like being able to see my yellow ball.

Re: Bawlz

Frankly, GBogey, you should try them before you poo poo them. My point was I don't think the marketing makes sense. Frankly, for whatever reason, I have never felt like Pro V1s fit my game. Trust me that I'm a ball snob - I don't pick up stray balls and only play what I want to play. I figure it's ...

Re: Bawlz

So from what I read on another forum - basically a Chrome Soft or B 330 RX, but since it's a Titleist they are charging the same price as a Pro V. I think Titleist missed the mark on this one.

Re: Wedge Finish Choices

Totally a brushed / gray look player. It just seems to me that's what a wedge should look like. Actually my irons are also a little brushed. Not a fan of the silver look at all. But do have one wedge I bought at discount that is chrome.

Re: How far do you really hit the ball.

When I am driving the ball well, in warmer temps, with reasonable roll, my center contact drives average about 230-240. If my baby draw is working I can get out there 250. But, my carry is typically around 225. I can also hit some real stinkers and barely reach 200. Everything depends on the day an...

Kuchar has been a top 20 type player a long time. Probably lost his chance last year. Westwood has been an elite player for at least two long periods. Seems like a really nice guy but doesn't seem to have the "it" factor to have won a major. Rickie is an obvious choice. Matsuyama and Rahm haven't be...

Re: 2018 The Masters Tournament

I won't say he's my favorite player but I pull for Patrick Reed a lot. I like players with a lot of fight, i.e. Stacy Lewis, and I appreciate a good short game. He's definitely tough. I hope he works on his image a little - would be good for him. For some reason I don't like Rory at all. Off the cou...

Re: Too many clubs. What would you do?

I'd take out the club you hit the worst. For example, I at times do better choking down on a hybrid than hitting a 5i, so that might be an option. I also don't carry a 3W as I hit a 5W just as far, at least off the deck. Not a big fan of adjusting clubs - never felt I was good enough.

I'm always amazed by how the mind impacts golf, even when we don't think it does. I know that my play suffered when my old company was going through really tough times.

Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

Unbelievable but almost did again today. More legit par 5 - 477, no wind. Driver, 5W to 7 feet. Putt just slide over edge of hole. I seem to really be swinging in mid-season form. For starters, after years of practice I seem to finally be hitting my driver and 5W with relative consistency. Unfortuna...

Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

So first time out this month but have my hole if not my shot. Qualifier, short par 5 (460 yards) and good wind behind me, but had my first par 5 eagle. Huge wind aided drive, must have been 280+, 6i to the green that almost hit the flag, sank a putt from 20 feet. Next hole was a short par 3 - 2 feet...

Re: Modernization of Rules - USGA/R&A

Lost balls are a totally different animal. The ball is lost so one has no idea where it is. I have seen people "estimate" the lost area 100 yards further than I would have looked for the ball. At least there is a 2 stroke penalty for adopting this fudged approach. It used to really grind my gears w...

Very True. Not only that but a buddy of mine and I used to joke about how "a shot that deep is into the grand stand", so we should get a free drop closer to the green.

Re: Modernization of Rules - USGA/R&A

My whole objection to these rules changes is that they will essentially make the game easier (in terms of scoring), and by too-significant a margin. Too much change, too suddenly. :nope I can see why you might say that but not sure I agree with one or two exceptions: Grounding a club in a hazard do...

Re: Modernization of Rules - USGA/R&A

Enough! Back to the rules. As I see it the changes can be summarized as follows: 1. If you ball moves by accident you can replace it without penalty - won't change how most people play 2. Rule changes about drops and reliefs from hazards - won't change how most people play that much 3. More areas ma...

Re: Modernization of Rules - USGA/R&A

So if you play a provisional you cannot use the local rule, but you still have the provisional option. So I understand it this way - you hit a big shot OB, you can drop on edge of fairway lieing (how to you spell lieing in golf?) 3. So no different than you hit a shot OB and then hit another shot to...

Re: Modernization of Rules - USGA/R&A

So the USGA decided to make OOB a play where instead of stroke and distance, you can drop near where the ball went OB, even in the fairway, with a two stroke penalty. It's listed as a local rule but I can't imagine a typical course not adopting it. Interestingly it still makes OB and lost ball more...
