Trial three pack.

S

To whom it may concern,

Last week I received an email asking to me to evaluate some golf balls that you sent me. The email did not allow me to let you know that I never got any golf balls. Two days ago the balls marked "TEST" arrived. Unfortunately I have finished playing for the season. With the high temperatures now in the 40's, I have no intention of playing until Spring '18. I have not played in over two weeks. It is just not me, as the rest of my regular group are also finished for the year. If you send me another evaluation email next Spring, I will fill it out. Strongly suggest not sending test items to Ohio between October and March.

    Surely there are some motivated golfers in Ohio who can come through for Titleist in the mild 40's... Hook them up.

    I'm sorry that S has packed his bag for the season and won't play the test balls. I live in Kentucky and play every chance I get even if it's in the 40s. I'm an avid Titleist player and would LOVE to receive a sleeve of test balls sometime. Maybe someday I'll get lucky.

    send them to me in Louisiana - we play year round down here!!!

    The test panels are random and everyone that receives them gets the same follow up emails. I'm sure there are plenty of players in your region that would test them out.
    Sounds pretty ungrateful to receive the opportunity in my opinion. Plenty never get the option to test.

    I would be thankful you got a sleeve.. Not many people even get one.. If you're not playing anymore, why don't you putt around with the ball in the house and compare it to the other ball that you're currently playing with. See if you can feel the difference between the balls. Does it feel soft, etc.? Many things you can do to test the ball. If there's no snow on the ground, chip around outside to get a feel off the face...

    OR, you can always dress up nice and warm and play a round solo.. Living here in the Northeast, i'm still playing whenever i get the chance.. So until that white stuff starts falling, I have some great FJ gear that keeps me warm making everyday playable for me.. YIIIPPEEE!!!!

    Hit'em str8!

    My group plays all year. I am more than happy to test :)

    I'd be happy to take them off your hands! Living in the south we can play year round!

    I agree with speedy, lots of ways to test. Heck even though there is snow on the ground here, if i got them i would take them to the chipping green.

    Played a round with the prototypes yesterday. 52 degrees and sunny. Only been playing around 8 years. Played 2 balls. The prototype and a chrome soft. Distance off most clubs was pretty comparable. The big difference I saw was it was a much straighter ball flight. Very forgiving for us amateurs. Only small complaint was on the putting surface it rolled true but felt like a marshmallow when you hit it. Well done TT.

    I got a sleeve and played yesterday. It was in the upper 30's to low 40's. I would love to test them in warmer weather, but I love the opportunity to be able to do it even in the cold.

    I got a sleeve to test this week here in Scotland. Played 1 round and done some chipping and putting, feel very much like a nxt tour s so far.

    After second thought, this is just ungrateful.

    Could not agree more.......

    Maybe you should just take yourself off of the testers list and let someone else have the opportunity to test. Just sayin'

    If the purpose of the "test" balls is to test them against real life situations, then sending balls to a cold weather location in late fall is not a real life test situation. I live in the northeast, play until the snow fly's, and received a sleeve of "test" balls. I played them, although swinging with 4 layers of cloths is not the same as playing them with just a short sleeved shirt on. I filled out the survey as best I could based on the playing conditions I had. Would rather have received the balls in July. FYI, balls played similar to NXT Tour S balls, as best I could tell, playing in 40 degree weather.
