Okay, they promoted the heck out of it and here it is, the 2021 Ball Test from My Golf Spy. What are your thoughts?
Here are the takeaways related to my game (103 mph with driver, so a mid-speed player).
- There is no perfect low driver spin, high wedge spin ball. It’s always going to have to be a compromise.
- Low compression = slower, but not necessarily shorter due to lower compression = lower spin.
- Based on what I do and want in a ball, it seems the best ball choices would be the Bridgestone Tour B XS, Titleist ProV1-X and the Chromesoft X. I’ve been playing the MTB-X which isn’t a bad ball for me, but does have some drawbacks in terms of the soft feel that I prefer and the desire to have more spin with wedges.
I’ve recently begun testing the Bridgestone Tour B XS so I’m going to stick out those tests, and possibly make a permanent switch.
