Thanks Titleist -- the Pro V1x performed beautifully this past weekend for me, helping me record a personal best score on one of our local courses!
This past weekend, we were fortunate enough to have some good weather - weather that had been dry, allowing our local golf courses to dry out from what has been a very wet winter.
With the break in the forecast, a group of us decided to hit the "links" at one of our local courses that is known for some of the best winter playing conditions. The day was beautiful and sunny albeit a tad chilly with temps around 7 - 8 degrees. With the exception of the deciduous trees having no leaves and the odd player wearing a toque, you would think it was April or May as the playing conditions were that good!
Anyway, the course we played at is a 5700 yard course with a Par of 70. It has very quick and tricky greens with plenty of undulations, slopes and false fronts. It also has some narrow fairways and strategic placing of bunkers, ponds, streams and trees help guard the course and greens.
So I was rather pleased with my round as I surprised myself and pulled off a personal best at this course with a round of 72 ... recording 5 - birdies but with a few bogeys and 2 - double bogeys! My Pro V1x performed beautifully, with the exception of two very poor shots (lateral hazards), it provided great ball flight and excellent spin-distance control, allowing me to "hunt some flags" with good results! That's why I trust my game to Titleist!
