    What it means is that I vary putting distance with the same swing using a different ball. Works well for , I used to switch putters between summer and winter but that is not possible in the middle of a round. If I find different green speeds than expected it is very easy to switch balls after a couple of holes.

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

    As a 16 h/c I just bought 40 Titleist grade B balls for under £14 on ebay to use during winter - balls get so scuffed or lost underground at our course so often it is crazy to play with new ones. They arrived yesterday and they look way better than a new ball after about 3 holes anyway!

    The former and the latter requires a little adjustment for greenside spin.

    * I have been meaning to try out Nike RZN white but little bit so far it seems that do not spin as well.
    So...what are your boundaries for fast/slow/medium? Do you take a stimp reader everywhere you go?

    As for me....same ball all year round.

    Very novel and interesting concept, whatever gets the ball in the hole in the fewest shots 👍

    Do you find the different balls all fly the same, react the same on chips/pitches etc or can you quickly adjust accordingly?

    I always play a premium brand 3 piece urethane ball and have learnt the slight distance differences between each of the types I play. Mind you these days I hardly ever practice and my consistency for shot distances rather reflects that. There are some premium brands that cost me half to one iron length so I usually keep these for when I am playing on my own.

    .
    Just many years of experience and an ability to quickly judge what sort of speed the greens are. Simply just looking at the grass on the green gives me a good first impression.

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

    I've fancied trying the Chromesoft X for a while as the standard version is a bit too soft for my liking. Went into AG yesterday and Callaway have an offer just now. Buy 1 doz and get a free 2ball pack as well, try them and if you don't like them take the dozen back for a full refund.

    So I'll be trying them on Sunday when I take money off Paperboy and JohnnyDee

    This for me too, got loads of batteredballs and just use them.

    Currently got one on the go that's done 10 rounds, going to try and keep it all winter.

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

    Definitely old and two pieced balls for the weekend. Looking very wet and so want something to help maximise my meagre distances. Holding the greens definitely not going to be a problem

    I was considering this before my injury, I use standard Pro V1's most of the time but considered trying the Pro V1X over the winter, hoping for a few yards extra carry. Perhaps next year.
