    Which ball would you play?

    The ball that gives you more distance on full shots?

    Or

    The ball that gives you more control around the greens?

    Don’t need distance

    Need control though.

    Preferring the more premium balls of late.

    Seem to behave a little better

    I loved last years Taylormade TPX, but baulked at the price of this years TP5, but I managed to get a deal on a few sleeves a few weeks ago and they were mint, less spin off the driver, great control in the wind and stopped incredibly on greens, lastly, they felt great off the putter face... seems premium price for premium balls can make a difference... once the price comes down I'll stock up for 2018 competitions...

    Control I guess, but I do need distance too
    removed list of clubs as they change too frequently !

    TP5x is a nice ball, long and feels reasonably soft off the putter.

    I reckon most of us would be suited to pinnacle gold's, only the really good ball strikers benefit from the premium ball.

    I doubt there'd be any drop off in scores if we all used cheaper balls. Still, people like spending money and looking good. Who am I to judge.

    No need for such a choice - the best balls provide both across the range of clubs and conditions.

    Pinnacle gold won't go any further than a ProV1 struck properly
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    10.8 and moving the right way again...

    Control on the green is a much better quality to have.

    I am already selecting how far I want the ball to go by choosing a club and shot type.
