For the better part of three years I struggled to find a performance golf ball I could trust. Having played Pro V1’s for a while, and admittedly loving their performance around the greens I was frustrated at how easily they would scuff. I had tried Nike, Bridgestone, Callaway…pretty much all the high end balls and liked them but did not love them.
My first experience with coloured Srixon balls was about five years ago with the Q Star. Straight and durable, it was the durability and the ability to better follow the ball off the club that impressed me. Upon finding out about Z Star line I immediately tried them and was impressed. Of course, dispersing play with these balls and my left over Pro V’s gave me an immediate comparator. Durability and optics were the deciding factors for me and performance was not lagging as much as I thought it may around the greens. Now? It’s all I’m going to use. I love their distinct colour and after many years finally found a ball I can trust. Heck, it is even playable after a cart path ‘kiss’.
What is your golf ball of choice and how loyal are you to your golf ball? Play well.
