    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

    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.
