     Just wondering if anyone knew if you are charged a hit on a ball when it is a conceded putt in M/P or A/S.  Does anyone also know how many hits a ball gets per dot on the scale. Thanks for input.

    I do not know how many hits you get but know this.......

    Putts do not count toward the hits count on any ball so conceded putts should not count.

    * It is calculated based on 21 hits per 9-hole round (par 36 with 67% green-in-regulation).

    Putts should not be included in this, unless from the fringe.

    I'm curious as to how the numbers would hold up in 18 hole rounds.   I know they double your 9 hole score for averages,  wonder if they double the hits on the ball too......

    Sorry, just a conspiracy theory.

     

    Also,

    I find it interesting that the balls with same amount of dots for durability can have different amount of hits,  likewise, balls with more durability dots having less hits that balls with less dots for durability.

     

    Just doesn't add up

    9 hole rounds at St.A with Callaway i(z) L45+/ Legend+ balls = 176 hits.

    Does it make a diferance if you put spin on the ball all the time?

    No. All your doing is applying spin to the ball when you hit it. Whether you put spin on that hit does not matter.

    Just counted the hits on the Nike 20XI-X 71+ ball. Got exactly 120 hits which did count 1 putt in a CTTH.
