It's time to stick with one ball... can you help?

The fun part of this thead is the original author started it in July, 2012.  Since that time, he never got back on this thread, and the new ProV lines came out.  The second best advice was to not worry about the best ball - it will change, has come to pass.

I will add I've been testing balls so far this season.  Even though the 1x is the highest compression of all Titleist balls and higher than balls designed for the rest of us that don't have pro speed, with my (barely) 90 mph driver speed, it won the distance contest.  NXT Tour was next, and a close third place went to a (softer) 4 piece Callie (in the mix because it comes in optic yellow). The first 2 were about equal on dispersion,  Need to get the short game in a better place to test for total score. 

Hi Don,

Great to hear the testing is going well and that you're zeroing in on the best ball for your game. One thing I wanted to clarify is the point around a ball being designed for a certain swing speed. That is a common myth that we hear a lot.

Something to think about...

When you're out on a golf course you're playing a wide variety of golf shots during the round. And since a golf ball only reacts to the force being applied, different shots require different swing speeds in order to execute them properly.

Keeping this in mind, a golf ball must perform for all golfers of all swing speeds on all shots, otherwise it won't perform for any golfer.

Here's a great post that sheds some more light on the topic as well. Definitely check this out...

Hope this helps and good luck on the final testing!
