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.

    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.

    I’ve found ONE k-sig on the course before and promptly landed it over the green into a pond. Glad I can play a whole round with one(many) now

    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.

      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???

    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

    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…

      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.

Former caddie Steve Williams raves about Tiger Woods’ victory at the 2019 Masters

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ ex-caddie, Steve Williams, has spoken in glowing terms concerning the 43-year-old’s latest victory at the Masters, a win which Williams believes will “re-energize” the sport.

The New Zealander, who was speaking to ESPN’S Bob Harig, admitted that though he doesn’t watch the sport regularly on TV anymore, he made an exception last weekend, and feels how his former boss’ victory at Augusta National will do wonders for the game.

“Now that Tiger has come right back there again, winning a major championship, possibly putting Jack’s (Nicklaus) record in play again … it just re-energizes the game . . .  It’s absolutely awesome.

He’s the only guy who can energize the game like that. All those kids who were watching had to think it was fantastic. And so what he’s done is a remarkable achievement. It’s so positive.”

Though Williams and Woods’ high profile split in 2011 was less than amicable, Williams credited the 15-time major champion’s “amazing achievement” in coming back from the point where he was on the verge of retiring to claim his fifth green jacket down to “pure guts and hard work.”

“Given the fact that two years ago he stated that he was unlikely to play competitive golf again, or was seriously doubting it – he wouldn’t just say that in jest, There would have been a lot of truth to it. For him to actually come back full cycle to win a major championship… it’s just an incredible story.

 It’s an amazing achievement of pure guts and hard work for him and just a true indication of what he is made of. It proves again what an amazing athlete he is. It’s just an amazing achievement.”

Williams also believes that the passing of golfing legend Arnold Palmer in 2016 had a significant impact on Woods, and while writing for the Australian site The Players Voice, the New Zealander stated

“I’m thinking that when Arnold passed away there was a realisation in Tiger that golf had lost a guy who was the most popular player ever. It was about a year after Arnold died that Tiger started his comeback after his back surgery and I think he may have decided that with his second chance he wanted to be remembered the way Arnold was remembered. I do think the passing of Arnie had a change in that respect.”

Steve Williams caddied for Woods between 1999 and 2011 and was on the 43-year-old’s bag for 13 of his 15 major championship victories.

Couple to name son after Tiger Woods after husband wins a bet with his wife

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ victory at last week’s Masters had a significant impact in the sporting world, and its meaning will forever be remembered in the household of a Dallas couple who are set to name their child after the 15-time major champion.

Trey Little, a lifelong golf fan, drew up a contract the week of the tournament (as you do), which stated that “If Tiger Woods wins the Masters this week, I (father) get to have the option of naming our son (coming September 2019) Tiger Little.” which his wife, Denise, signed.

Speaking to the NY Post, Little talked about the reaction of his wife and himself when they realized that Woods was about to win the event last Sunday.

“On hole 18, we realized, ‘Wow, he’s really going to pull this thing off. This whole thing started almost as a joke, then it turned into something really real, really quick.”

The name may not be the easiest to live up to, but with the child’s middle name to be Julian, Trey has all the bases covered, joking “He could always go by T.J.”
