Best “non-tour” golf ball

1. TaylorMade Tour Response

What TaylorMade says: “The Tour Flight Dimple Pattern unlocks next-level aerodynamics while promoting maximum carry distances. This Tour-proven technology, which is found in TP5/TP5x, has been added to Tour Response for the first time.”

From our launch piece: “The 2022 Tour Response also features Speedmantle with HFM (High Flex Modulus). A firmer second layer surrounding the inner low compression core is designed to help the ball explode off the face with increased face interaction maximizing energy transfer at impact to produce faster ball speeds.”

2. Srixon Q-Star

What Srixon says: “Featuring Spin Skin with Slide-Ring Material, the new Q-STAR offers unprecedented greenside spin performance. Spin Skin with SeRM digs deep into Wedge and Iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction and maximizing spin for more stopping power on every shot.”

From our launch piece: “The new Q-Star shares technology with Srixon’s Z-Star Series but is packaged into a two-piece, ionomer construction.”

3. TaylorMade Tour Response Stripe

What TaylorMade says: “360° ClearPath Alignment was engineered with the golfer in mind. This next-gen visible technology of Tour Response Stripe wraps around the center of the golf ball to help you aim putts better, faster and more consistently, all while providing immediate feedback on the quality of your roll. A lime yellow finish offers enhanced visibility.”

From our launch piece: “By drawing inspiration from the PIX design with ClearPath Alignment technology, TaylorMade engineers brought the 360 degree alignment to Tour Response in design to offer the easiest golf ball to align that they’ve ever made.”

4. Titleist Tour Speed 

What Titleist says: “If you’re looking for long distance, a penetrating flight and shot stopping control into the green, we’ve got you covered with Titleist Tour Speed. Like the name says, Tour Speed is very fast, but low scores require more than speed and Tour Speed is designed to help you execute every type of shot. All with the quality and consistency you trust from Titleist.”

From our launch piece: “The Tour Speed ball features a reformulated 1.550 core that is designed to deliver high speeds and a proprietary high flex casing layer, uniquely designed for this golf ball to maintain low long game spin.”

5. Wilson Triad, Bridgestone e12 Contact

What Wilson says: “Triad’s high MOI design moves weight from the core to the outer layers of the golf ball resulting in faster ball speed and lower driver spin for a more stable ball flight and more fairways hit. The ultra-thin cast urethane cover engages longer with the clubface on mid-to-low irons, generating controlled ball flight and greater spin to attack pins with confidence.”

What Bridgestone says:  “The true game-changer is a new CONTACT Force dimple, which features a unique structure with a raised area in the center and an outer portion that slows horizontal rotation during flight. The raised area allows for 38% more contact with the clubface at impact than traditional dimples, yielding a much more efficient transfer of energy and improved core activation. The result is faster ball speed and straight distance with every club in the bag.”

    I’d give the e-12 a thumbs down, Tour Response, love the full stripe. and if it is not the Pro V1 never found any Titlist ball worthy of the name…

    Just out of curiosity, what are the differences between the TM Response and TM Response Stripe, outside of the stripe, that would constitute the Response be listed twice?

WITB Time Machine: Tiger Woods, 2017 Hero World Challenge

Published

on

Following a 10-month layoff and his then-fourth back surgery, Tiger Woods teed it up at the 2017 Hero World Challenge. Tiger finished 9th in the event, 10 strokes behind Rickie Fowler, but the 15-time major champion also gave fans some glimpses of his former dominance, including this majestic 3-wood approach shot from 271 yards out on a par 5:

He also had an amazing chip in for birdie on the 17th hole:

Tiger’s driver was also excellent that week, and his overall stats were pretty impressive in his second round: Woods hit 9 of 13 fairways, 13 of 18 greens and 27 putts. 31-37=68.

Woods was expected to return to action at this week’s competition — making his first start since The Open Championship in July where he missed the cut. However, he announced Monday he was withdrawing owing to plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
