Return of the K Sig: Costco’s Kirkland Signature golf ball is back

Published

on

The buzz in the GolfWRX forums this afternoon: Costco’s Kirkland Signature Four-Piece Urethane Golf Ball is back in stock.

DavePelz4 gleefully spilled the beans.

Screenshot (87)Now available to members only online, the K Sigs are still retailing for $29.99 per two dozen; $4.99 shipping & handling. Orders are limited to two (24-packs) per member, and of course, supplied are limited.

Referred to colloquially as a “K Sig” by its many admirers, Costco, it seems, has no intention of halting production of the controversial, disruptive golf ball.

A three-piece, 338 dimple golf ball appeared on the USGA’s conforming ball list over the summer, leading many to speculate that the embattled four-piece ball had indeed met its eternal demise.

However, the packaging for this Four-Piece Urethane Golf Ball is the same as the popular, and routinely out-of-stock ball whose production was halted in January.

    Bought four dozen, just like most of us here. Finally got an opportunity to get out and play this ball. Absolutely great feeling ball from driver through putter. As they are no longer currently available, I wish I had been able to buy more as my buddies have decided they need to sample my purchase!

    Got mine a few weeks ago. After playing a few rounds with these, all I can say is that they’re fantastic! More spin around the greens than my usual Bridgestone RXS, and great distance. Try them out before you hate on them! Can’t beat the price!

    Titleist AVX for the golfer that buys new drivers every season and believes it improves their game. SMH. K-Sig for the golfer who would normally buy a decent ball that plays well and says why not buy a better ball for less money.

    I just ordered two dozen Ksigs (again). I am no loss to major ball manufacturers as I have felt that most premium golf balls are over priced and don’t buy them anyway. Most of the price of premium balls and clubs is to cover the cost of advertising. I can score about the same with low spinning balls but there are some shots around the green that a high spin ball works better. Thank you Costco and golfwrx.

    I’m sure the good balls, but I’ll stick to buying last year’s name brand balls for a few bucks more. Currently have a huge stash of Srixon Z-Stars that I got for $23/doz.

    Those of us old enough to remember back in the days pro line balls were $1.25 ea or $15 a doz. now 40 yrs later you can get a hi quality golf ball for the same?? Makes you wonder how much today’s balls are over priced. I’ll be anxiously awaiting my order of K-sig balls.

  15. WILLIAM MARTELLA

    Oct 18, 2017 at 2:34 pm

    less than $20 a dozen delivered, for a quality tour design ball? Done. Let’s me save my Nike RZN Tour Black for special occasions, since the supply is twindling hahaha. Take that high priced ball manufacturers!

    The marketer in me holds interest in the new Titleist AVX ball. So many questions like entry price into market ( Prov1X’s pricing), limited distribution and how this ball will be indeed marketed. This is a wait see for me until I gather the facts.

    But I find the timing of the AVX and Costco another curious entity. There are only so many ball manufacturers in the world. Take a look at the confirming ball list and you will see that Titleist has dozens of balls listed: meaning that there is no reason to not believe that they private label mfr’ng for other brands.

    A wait and see….

    • WooHoo

      Oct 18, 2017 at 4:00 pm

      ProV1 minus $20 = AVX

      • golfbum

        Oct 18, 2017 at 4:24 pm

        Titleist has yet to position this 3 piece AVX against other brand types. So lowering it to $30 a dozen when you dont have to? Perhaps…..but the wait and see comment. The interest is how this ball will be marketed. Coming out at top $ and lower price later is a strategy, but you have to build the brand and with that demand. Limited distribution is but one tactic. making it a cheaper ball without positioning it correctly just cheapens the brand.

        Golf marketing is changing. This one interests me.

        The key question that I am seeking exact information what OEM is making the ball that is being branded Kirkland. A bit too lazy but if i can get my hands on the box the UPC codes and other information will provide insight there. Find the timing of Costco notice of a 3 piece and the AVX of interest. Again, I seek then determine.

        On this note, I have played the AVX. It is a good ball. But then, today, all balls are good.

          Titleist is just putting a U cover on the NXT S and seeing if they can make an extra $15 a box on em.

            AVX on counter at public course I played today…$50 a dozen hand written sign……a joke, course is only $22 with cart to play.

    • Michael

      Oct 18, 2017 at 4:06 pm

      Titleist choose our club as part of their Florida test market for the AVX. I bought a dozen to try them. Good, but not better than Srixon QStar Tour or Snell MTB. Not close to being worth $50+ a dozen. I predict it will fail in the market segment they have targeted.

      I successfully ordered two 24 packs of the Kirkland ball. We shall see. At that price it’s worth seeing if it really is a great ball. But if they can’t supply it on a regular basis what’s the point?

      Snell is the best high performance ball and value out there.

      • Scott

        Oct 19, 2017 at 4:33 pm

        Did you compare the AVX to the other Titleist balls? That would seem more relevant of a comparison than to the others you mentioned.

      • gorden

        Oct 19, 2017 at 9:46 pm

        Just the fact Costco had another run shows that there is a manufacture in South Korea willing to produce them, it may not even be the same South Korean manufacture that made the first run, but I believe the ability to run a Urethane cover was in a plant that was making Taylor Made balls with Urethane Covers for Asian Market. Volvik would be one of their biggest competitors in South Korea.

    Definitely worth a try, however, Dean Snell stated that there’s no way it will be the same ball as the original. Should be interesting to see the inevitable comparisons with Titleist and the original ball.

    So what happens when they run out again. It’s good that they put a limit so people don’t buy all of them and try and sell them at a ridiculous price but they will eventually run out. Honestly you can spend an extra 5 dollars a dozen and get a great ball from a company call Cut Golf and don’t have to worry about only getting 2 2packs. Just saying. I tried the old ones and wasn’t a huge fan. It’s all about what ball fits your game though. To each their own.

    • Charlie

      Oct 18, 2017 at 11:11 am

      I wish I could agree with you. I so badly wanted the “Cut” 4 piece golf ball to be everything it was hyped up to be, but I found them to high spinning, which is fine and great around the greens, but off the tee they were terrible. Glad to see the return of the k-sig!!!

  27. Gorden

    Oct 17, 2017 at 11:32 pm

    Wonder if the manufacture did loose contract with Taylormade and needs to sell to COSTCO???

  28. gwillis7

    Oct 17, 2017 at 10:40 pm

    I just bought two (24 packs), as of right now they are in stock. The ones I bought say 4 piece urethane.

    I usually play W/S Duo’s…lookin forward to getting my K-Sig on

  29. cgasucks

    Oct 17, 2017 at 10:03 pm

    Can’t wait for Rick Sheils and other reviewers to test this ball out, even though this isn’t the 4 piece wonderball that has been chronically sold out…

      Oct 18, 2017 at 8:26 am

      LOL. They are probably furiously calling their lawyers now.

      K-Sig for $1.25 per ball, or the new Titleist AVX for three times the price? No contest.

Bryson DeChambeau’s coach, Mike Schy, explains why his student was spraying water on golf balls

Published

on

Plenty of folks freaked out about Bryson DeChambeau misting golf balls with a spray bottle to simulate morning dew ahead of the Tour Championship.

“Peak Bryson!” was the widespread refrain regarding the driving cap aficionado’s on-range antics. The strangest on-range occurrence since Padraig Harrington’s pre-shot maneuvers! For DeChambeau’s coach since his junior days, however, the behavior was emblematic of the young maestro’s mindset.

Mike Schy, appearing on our Two Guys Talkin’ Golf podcast, said,

“Everyone was making fun of him spraying his golf ball, trying to figure out how the water would hydroplane on the ball…blah, blah, blah. The reality is, that’s how his mind functions. “Wait a minute: So if my ball has water on it from dew in the morning…” For him, if he doesn’t know or he’s not sure, he will go insane and possibly implode…for him, understanding barometric pressure, understanding a five mile per hour wind coming from 11 o’clock with my 7-iron is going to affect it three yards…all it is is to help him understand that it’s a 175 or 174 shot. That’s all it is. But if he has any doubt…doubt now creates problems in execution, so that’s all it is.”

Schy then went on to poke a bit of fun at his pupil, saying that once DeChambeau realizes dew could be of a different consistency than water from a spray bottle, or that dew at different locations may have different consistencies, he’ll be keen to test those variables as well.

And here’s a bonus morsel: Schy talking about DeChambeau’s original interest in single length clubs and the initial set composition.

“He said, ‘Why do I have to have variable length clubs?’ And I said, ‘Well, that’s an easy question to ask and a difficult one to answer.”…we did some research, and we discovered Bobby Jones played one length when he won his Grand Slam…So basically what I did is I took a set of Nike forged cavity backs and I destroyed them. We made them all 284-gram heads heads. We put Dynamic Gold 6-iron shafts in all of them. We had to take 40 grams of weight out of the sand wedge. We had to add 50 grams of lead tape to the 4-iron.”

For more with the Madera, Calif. based coach, be sure to give a listen to the full TG2 podcast.

Kyle Thompson films man taking his dumped Staff bags, then finds them listed on Craigslist

Published

on

Earlier in the week, PGA Tour professional Kyle Thompson put three old Srixon golf bags (that he has since stressed “were in bad shape”) out with the garbage.

What the 39-year-old wasn’t expecting, however, was for someone to come by and snag the items from his trash. That’s precisely what happened however, and Thompson managed to capture the incident, which he then uploaded to his Instagram account (second slide):

The bag burglar displayed some smooth moves as he tiptoed his way across Thompson’s driveway before snagging the items and hopping back into his truck and driving off for a clean getaway.

Thompson then turned investigator, found the items listed on Craigslist, which the seller, who he christened “Cowboy,” had priced at $175.

If that wasn’t enough, the clubs were also spotted on eBay where the items were unashamedly listed as a “Kyle Thompson model,” and the seller, who was clearly struggling to move the bags, had dropped his asking price down to $100.

As for Thompson, he appeared to find the entire episode amusing, even praising his man “Cowboy” for his ingenuity.
