    Will you swap your ball in the UK winter?

    I've had a strange season with golf balls, struggled and fell out with pro v1, and started using Bridgestone supersoft and seamed to hit it straighter. Then I moved to Nike rzn black volts and platinum after early success I played a used pro v1 again and had my seasons success.

    So do you swap at any time? I've got a box full of Nike's, z stars, tm5x, pro v1 and srixon soft feels I won.

    Is there a benefit from using pro v1 through the winter months?

    Yes, i am using nike platinum practice, which cost 1 pound per ball, as opposed to prov1x. Winter golf is rubbish, with all the leaves, and i hate losing expensive golf balls after a half decent shot.

    Use a Prov1x most of the time but during the winter will use any old ball TBH. Greens soft so even a TF will stop most of the time.

    Re: Will you swap your ball in the UK winter?

    I've been experimenting with different balls all year anyway. All of them soft two piece ones. A month ago I got round to buying a box of DX2's to try, and this has coincidentally worked out well with winter approaching and them being the cheapest ball in the category. I think I'll stick with them for my next box but get the yellow version.

    Next summer I think I might go to Titleist DT Trusoft though as they were my favourite of the other balls I've tried.

    Nope - I only use balls that I find so not bothered about losing them.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    We start losing balls on the fairway around this time of the year so the cheap and cheerful Dunlops will be brought out for the next few months.

    Cool stuff 👍

    I'm only playing the winter series comps, will the pro v1 lose distance over a two piece through winter? I like the dx ball I found.
