I'm pretty impressed with the FG Tour ball.  Just wondering what the FG means?
I can guess, but I don't think they had in mind what I've come up with.

How about Forged Golf. Does not make sense on the balls but it is used only on forged clubs.

Clearly it's a ball that chooses to not fly "straight". Ball is only legal in a select few states. :)

Their letters for their irons are  D- Distance, C- Control, F- Feel.  I would guess that the F on the ball is Feel but no clue what the G stands for.  But I do agree with "f****g Great."

At one time I might have come across it, but ???   Wilson has a history of using initials from designers in their clubs (RM was Robert Mendralla) so it is likely that FG is someones initials.
