Professional 100

The other day I was cleaning out my closet and found a dozen brand new in the box Titleist Professional 100's. Does anyone know the shelf life on these gems. Are they still fit to play with or should they go in my Titleist Shag Bag. I know golf ball technology has come a long way. As a kid I grew up playing Titleist "Club Specials". I am dating myself now. Oh well. Love all the guys and gals at Titleist. Thanks for all the hard work in making the game I love so enjoyable for all skill levels.

 

I used to love the Professionals.  I would bet they've got some life in them, but will probably be a bit dated as far as performance goes.

I used to love the Professionals.  I would bet they've got some life in them, but will probably be a bit dated as far as performance goes.

I used to really love the Professionals but I doubt they will perform anywhere close to "modern" balls.

I think they would perform to the same specs as they would have when you bought them (assuming your closet didn't experience any extreme temps).  But they aren't going to perform like the new generations of balls.  My family use to own a golf store so I have dozens of balls in my basement that are new in the box.  But the spin and distance is very noticeably different than a new ball.

LOVE THAT BALL!  I THINK WHEN THE RULING BODIES DECIDE TO TAKE SOME DISTANCE OFF THE BALL TO COMPENSATE FOR THE NEW CLUB TECHNOLOGY THEY WILL REINTRODUCE THE WOUND BALL AKA 

"THE PROFESSIONAL"
