    I am willing to bet a month wages that all those drooling over this article could NOT tell the difference between a first generation Pro-V1 and this new prototype.

    Titleist is “not ready to pass out any information on the ball” yet? Typical.
    I used to use ProV’s all the time until they has durability issues a couple years ago. Switched over to the Bridgestone B330S and haven’t looked back. As long or longer than the ProV1x, as soft and has as much spin around the greens as the ProV1, and more durable than both of them.

    Pro V1 x+ is a tour prototype. Rocco Mediate played one for awhile. It is a Prov1X cover and dimple pattern with the soft ProV1 core! I’d love to get my hands on some of those…and I am not a Titleist guy!

    At least most of you were chosen a second time to test the new Titleist ball. I had tested the last two versions but, obviously, my opinions were no good as I was not chosen for this round.

    One of the tour players gave my kids the prototype while he was using it on the range at the BMW Championship in Denver. The ball looked just like a Pro V1X, but said Pro V1X+ on it.

    I game the V1s only if I find those. And today I was lucky twice. The Tour S is probably as good as the V1 for any non scratch player and you get but more for your money. If money wasn’t an issue and I was playing more often I would only play the V1s.

    How about an improvement on price.

    Wonder if they are going to go into the 5 layer ball world like Taylor and Callaway. Typical Titleist is to have everyone else do it then they come out with the best version after the fact. Just like when they were last to get into the multilayer tour ball world.

    Leave it to Titleist to keep on researching and improving their product. No wonder they are the number one ball in golf.

    Be interesting to see what they are trying to improve on. I’ve used the Prov1x model for over 6 years and love the ball.

    I guess any improvement would be welcome even if it is only minor.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Phil Mickelson’s sunglasses

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been getting to the bottom of Phil Mickelson’s new look on tour. WRXers have been speculating on the brand of the sunglasses as well as commenting on Lefty’s new jogger pants he donned at the Travelers Championship.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • bulls9999: “Hah, I just posted to my Phil Mickelson forum that ‘the first time I’ve noticed Phil wearing glasses while playing’… reflective aviator style? I like the look; but I often get eye strain out in the bright sun and would often wear sunglasses between shots, just can’t wear them playing a shot.”
  • nobody_important: “I hate that I know this, but looking at the hinge they are Mykita. Not sure which frame but that’s where I would put my money.”
  • raheelc: “Yep, looking at the hinges, they definitely look like they are Mykita sunglasses. Hard to tell exactly which model, but to me, seems like they are the Mykita Caleb, $545.”
  • drn92: “Forget about the sunglasses … what about the joggers he is wearing?”

What GolfWRXers are saying about ‘hitting it 300+ yards using a stiff shaft’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the use of a stiff shaft and whether it can provide both distance and accuracy. WRXer ‘ebibler’ kicks off the thread with this problem:

“I’ve been getting up to the tee lately and haven’t the slightest clue where my next drive is going. I have always played an X flex with a nice tight draw, but this year I seem to be hanging shots to the right(probably my hands or my swing but…….lol)

I currently play an F9 with the Atmos in X, it hits bombs, but they are useless unless I can control them. I’m normally around 3 Bills off the tee, any chance a Stiff flex would help? My town has zero options for fitting, so I come to you guys for help!”

And our members have been getting involved in the discussion with lots of advice offered up in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Jc0: “Consider a heavier weight if you are having control issues. Stiffer and heavier usually help with control.”
  • mcounci2: “Not me, but one of the guys in our regular foursome has an incredibly smooth swing and is about 310-330 with a stock stiff hzrdus smoke black TS3.”
  • Leftlove94: “If I get into one I can hit it 300+. Not as frequently as I used too, which is why I’m hitting a Stiff shaft now. Had one drive last week at 305 but it was a touch downhill. Average drive was about 275-280 w/ 5 yards of fade. A draw adds 5-10 for me.”
  • Booker: “One of my playing partners hits a 910 d3 with the stock made for 72s ahina. Plays to a three handicap Doesn’t care about shaft flexes or weight, just kills it—174mph ball speed with this thing. Also still plays a vsteel spoon with a 75g NV, no problem carrying the spoon 265. Going on ten years with that driver and 22years with the spoon.”

In our forums, the spotlight has been shone on Jason Dufner’s Axis 1 putter from this week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic. Dufner has lost strokes at both events with his flat-stick since the PGA Tour’s restart, and it looks as if he is trying to find his groove on the greens in Detroit with the Axis 1. Our members have been having their say on the switch.
