As usual, Mark Crossfield does a good review of the new Titleist driver as well as the new TaylorMade drivers.
I’m headed to the movies to see Justice League in 70mm. Highest quality negative with a minimal amount of crop applied to the film – but I always enjoy 70mm films. For camera buffs, it’s like watching medium format film.
I’m curious to see what the hidden content is at the end. It’s also going to be tough to avoid spoilers.
Titleist new AVX Ball
I had a good discussion about this yesterday. Have you heard of the new Titleist AVX ball? It’s a new release from Titleist in only three states – California, Arizona, and Florida. We also don’t know if this ball will be around in the future as Titleist has said that it’s a test ball. My conversation that I had? It seems to be a long ball for just about everyone. But what do you call it? I heard it called yesterday,”The Titleist Pro V1 AVX”. That sounds like an awfully long name. I think my buddy Pete will like them because finally, they have a top-tier premium ball that comes in yellow.
NBA’s One and Done
I hope we’re getting rid of it. It’s kind of made a mockery of college basketball. If you’re going to go to college and play hoops, then you should stick around and do so. These coaches in colleges need teams that they can count on.
No politics this morning. Off to golf with some friends. But a few items that I wanted to hit on.

I’m very interested to see where we’re going with this. Many insiders are saying that the director finally got things right.

Now does this include Taylormade Irons? The entire bag thru wedges? He retains his Scotty Cameron putter… I’d guess a yes on the latter.

Titleist New Pro V1 and Pro V1X
- 2017 Pro V1: Lower Spinning, Lower Trajectory, Softer Feel
- 2017 Pro V1x: Higher Spinning, Higher Trajectory, Firmer Feel
The benefits of the 2017 Pro V1 were obvious to PGA Tour player Jason Kokrak, who ranked No. 6 in driving distance on the PGA Tour in 2016 using the company’s Pro V1x golf ball. He’s also a highly effective driver of the golf ball, ranking No. 8 in the Tour’s Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee statistic.
In testing the 2017 golf balls, Kokrak found that he could hit the new Pro V1 as far the Pro V1x, Mahoney said. He preferred the Pro V1’s softer feel around the greens, however, because he thought it could help him improve his short-game touch. So he ended up making the switch to Pro V1.
