GolfWRX is live this week from the Champion Course at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Jack Nicklaus redesigned the course in 1990, which introduced the “Bear Trap,” consisting of holes No. 15, 16 and 17. The trio of holes has accounted for 18 percent of all bogeys and 32 percent of all double bogeys at the event since it began hosting in 2007.

The field this week features each of the top-seven golfers in the world rankings, and 13 of the top 25. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson headline the event after sitting out at last week’s match play, while Adam Scott returns to competition in his first tournament since the Sony Open in Hawaii.

At last year’s Honda Classic, defending champion Michael Thompson held off a strong field with par saves down the stretch and a closing birdie to win his first PGA tournament by two shots over Geoff Ogilvy.

Rory McIlroy will seek revenge at PGA National after he withdrew last year citing a toothache. He won the event in 2012 by two shots over Tiger Woods and Tom Gillis.

Check out our photos from PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens.

Titleist AVX golf balls passed the test, are now available across the United States

Published

on

Titleist’s AVX golf balls first came to retail as an experiment in three markets — Arizona, California and Florida — from October 2017 to January 2018. AVX (which stands for “Alternative to the V and X”) are three-piece golf balls made with urethane covers, and they’re made with a softer feel for more distance than the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.

After proving their worth to consumers, Titleist’s AVX golf balls are now available across the U.S. as of April 23, and they will sell for 47.99 per dozen (the same as Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls) in both white and optic yellow.

According to Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, the AVX is a member of the Pro V1 family. Here’s a basic understanding of the lineup:

  • AVX: Softest, lowest trajectory, lowest spinning, less greenside spin and longest
  • Pro V1x: Firmer than the Pro V1, highest spinning and highest trajectory
  • Pro V1: Sits between the V1x and the AVX in terms of feel, spin and trajectory, and will appeal to most golfers

Different from the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, the AVX golf balls have a new GRN41 thermoset cast urethane cover to help the golf balls achieve the softer feel. Also, they have high speed, low compression cores, a new high-flex casing layer, and a new dimple design/pattern.

For in-depth tech info on the new AVX golf balls, how they performed in the test markets, and who should play the AVX golf balls, listen to our podcast below with Michael Mahoney, or click here to listen on iTunes.
