The Strick

Thanks for the info. That's very interesting.  I know he used to play the '07 ProV1 until recently switching to the ProV1x (past year or 2).  

Do you know his motivation for switching from the V1 to the the V1x, abd/or why he switched from the '11 version to the '13 version?

I apologize if I'm asking for too much detail.  If you didn't already assume, I'm a huge fan of Steve. Also, I have a very similar "dead hands" swing that does not generate excessive spin.  That's why I'm curious to know why he prefers the V1x over the V1.

Thanks!!

We spoke to the Tour rep and here is his reply.

Steve's motivation going from the 2007 Pro V1 to the 2011 Pro V1x was mainly for increased peak trajectory and distance. Yes, his spin rates were fractionally lower with the ProV1x but that ball had a higher trajectory than the 2007 Pro V1. As a result of this it came into the green at a steeper descent angle so it stopped as well if not better even though it had less spin. He also gained some yards off the tee due to the higher flight and less spin. And there was no sacrifice in green side performance aside from a slight feel/sound difference
The reason for the change from the 2011 Pro V1x to the 2013 model was a slight increase in iron spin.
Awesome! Thanks so much for the info!

Cathi,

Thanks for the excellent explanation of Strickers switch to the 2013 ProV1x. I also have made the switch, although not for the same reason. I found that I increased my distance with the 2013 ball by about 10 to 15 yds.

Sure is nice to have the facts and you folks at Titleist deserve at least 100 attaboys.

T T members,

Seems like Steve was the only one who was not concerned with his limited schedule.

Fresh every tourney and showed it!  He is the model of consistency. GO Strick.

Glad he's doing it his way and not falling into peer pressure to play so much.. And that he's stayed with Titleist.

He also is one of the few on the PGA that carries a 5 iron hybrid (27*).
