    K7JBQ:

    Thanks for the friends invite.

    I've played the level 90 Nikes, and done well with them, but they're just a little too "high strung" for my game on an every day basis. What I mean is, they react very strongly to slight differences in spin, and I have trouble getting consistent, predictable yardage with them. With the Volviks, what I lose in yardage I gain in consistency on the approach shots. And it's the approach shot that sets up scoring opportunities.

    That said, if I'm playing a tournament on a long course like Chambers Bay or Erin Hills, I sometimes equip the Nikes. On a course where accuracy is more important than distance, such as Pebble Beach or the Olympic Club, I'll go with the Volviks every time.

    But it's great that we have a variety of balls available. Makes the game more fun.

     

    Thanks for accepting the invite. I thought maybe we can play a round. I play on mobile though.

    You're absolutely right, having variety of balls makes it more fun to play. It could also be a problem, because they react differently, requires testing for every brand of ball. So far, I'm quite content with the Callaways L34, till I tier up, and try the Nike L90. I like the 4.0 meter on those Nike balls, just strictly use them for tournaments.

    I was just asked in my last match at Chelsea(900 coin prize)..."How was I a Tour Master with a 88.5 avg?" I replied that i didn't know. I just play Chelsea alot. In no way is 88.5 close to my actual avg. I like it artificially high and surprise TM's and even Legends once in a while when i spank em haha :)!

    You tiered up because of number of levels, nothing else.  You have two ranked rounds that result in an average of exactly 88.5, so that IS your real average.

    Like you when I made this post, haven’t done enough ranked rounds, but I kept being promoted. All my promotions from Master to present as Tour Legend, came from coin games. I didn’t like the Legend promotion, I stopped playing for 8 months. Then I came back playing, beat few higher ranking players, and got the TL promotion. It’ll be the same for you, if you keep winning in coin rooms.
