    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 Tony Finau’s 206mph ball speed

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Tony Finau’s recent 206mph ball speed (and 383-yard carry) which he recorded in practice and uploaded to his Instagram page. Our members have been commenting on the ease of the swing from Finau which produced the numbers and whether he could now challenge Bryson DeChambeau as the tour’s longest hitter.

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.

  • extrastiff: “Yea that’s pretty nuts. Craziest part is, looks like my normal swing, and looks like a normal length club. So much balance. If he actually swung out of his shoes with super low loft, he would be carrying that no problem. Redonkulous.”
  • iBanesto: “Looked pretty easy for Finau!”
  • QuigleyDU: “I do think that Bryson could create a bit of a PGA distance arms race. This week could be pretty telling. He has done well on some by PGA standard cupcake courses. This one is different. Accuracy is much more important, and misses will be more penal.”
  • MUNIGRIT: “Tiger has now said Finau and Woodland are the longest guys on tour. Bryson is definitely the longest and straightest. Distance is only part of the problem. It’s been about 90 to 98 degrees in Utah the last week. He looked like he was in SLC Valley for that tee shot which is 4300 ft elevation and when you figure the actual Density altitude it was 7500 feet. That contributes hugely to the carry distance.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the optimal equipment strategy for a beginner

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best equipment-strategies for beginners taking up the sport. WRXer ‘Used2PlayAlot’ asks members what their nuggets of advice would be, and WRXers have been sharing their top tips for beginners 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.

  • MattGolfs: “Id try to find a used set locally with bag and everything included. As a beginner, you just need to get out and start playing to figure out what you like and dislike equipment-wise IMO.”
  • rkillian: “My brother in law more recently got into the game. I found him a used set on craigslist for $150. My dad is getting back into it as well. He has slowed down and needed some irons that are a little lighter and a newer more forgiving driver. Also found stuff for him on craigslist—$ 120 for irons and a driver. My wife and daughter wanted to have their own clubs when they come play a par 3 with me. Found my wife a used box set on craigslist for $50 and my daughter a little junior set for $20 on the Facebook market place. You should be able to find what someone new to the game needs on craigslist or Facebook.”
  • tomg1969: “I just did this for a friend. I went to eBay and found a nice set of Ping G5 irons for $100. I also picked up two nice, older Adams a12 hybrids for $50, and a Ping driver for $60. I gave him one of my older putters, and old stand bag and a sand wedge. For $210 (Plus the things that I gave him from my “junk pile”) he has a pretty nice and forgiving set up for a beginner.”
  • kmay_: “Yep look on local classifieds, Facebook marketplace etc. A buddy of mine at work wanted to get into playing, so I sold him an old set of irons I had, a stand bag, and an old 3 wood. Found him a driver on Kijiji, he picked up a 60* and a putter and now he’s playing more often than me the bugger. Has an exec course across the street from his house, so he bought a membership there and has been playing a ton. Cheap full set would be the way I would go, get the guy into it and then if he wants to continue playing, he can start putting together a better set with your guidance.”

Published

In our forums, our members have been discussing cult classic irons. WRXer ‘pingnewbie’ kicks off the thread with his two choices of Mizuno’s MP-33 irons and Nike’s VR Pro irons, and asks fellow members for their picks.

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.

  • ScottsTots: “MP-32’s for me! I think at some point the JPX 900 Tour might hit that status if Koepka runs off a few more majors over his career!”
  • cgasucks: “Obviously the Ping Eye 2s and the 845s.”
  • celebros: “Cleveland TA3 Form Forged.”
  • gwelfgulfer: “Nike original blades, 32’s and 33’s (prefer 33’s), ’05 TP CB’s (Jpn version if you can find), RAC Lt, 300 Forged, R9 TP B’s, Eye’s, I5’s, ’07 X Forged, Adams MB2’s plus many more.”
