Shoots in the 70s
Model Reviewed: Taylormade TP/BACK LDP
Summary: I have been playing Pro 1x for I don't remember how long. Been playing competetive golf ever since i been shooting mid 70's to under par and I would say these balls clearly aren't as good as the tour balls (Pro V1's).
The feel of the ball is really good nice soft touch but I definitely lost some distance. I drive the ball around 280 but clearly with this ball i was getting the ball out there only prob max 265-270 but it maybe my swing that day or weather or the fairways but I really feel the distance was lost.
For the price of these balls, they are great for the average golfers but I wouldn't recommend these if your a low handy and are picky with the equipment you use (like me)

Summary: Why do reviewers feel compelled to compare a $20 golf ball to a $50 golf ball. It's not a pro-v however it is a very good alternative. I just shot two rounds in the 70s with it no scuffs one ball. Long off the tee and good around the green.
Customer Service: Not needed.

Summary: My usual ball is a Titleist Pro V1X. I'm a course marshal, I find lots of balls and try them out on the driving range. I found a few of these Taylormade Burners and initially thought that they went long off the driver. So I actually bought a dozen ball box for $19. That purchase may be a violation of the unwritten Golf Marshal's code of ethics.
Well I shot a whole game with the balls, and truthfully was underwhelmed. Yes the ball feels okay off the driver and maybe is a little longer than the softer Titleist Pro V1, but ball flight is not as predictable, does not behave as well in the wind. And putting with this 2 piece ball is somewhat unpleasant. Off the putter the feel is somewhat rock-like hard and cheap feeling.
My score for the round was 8 strokes higher than usual.
I won't play another round with these balls. I'll give them away to the junior golfers.
Customer Service: Purchased at Golf Mart.
Similar Products Used: I prefer Titleist Balls. I'd rather hit a Top Flite ball than these Taylormades.
Summary: Off the Driver/Tee: Added 15-20 yards off the tee with both the driver and irons. Reduced my slice by about 5 yards too. Overall off the tee 5/5.
Off the irons: No joke this added 20 yards to my irons (7 iron used to be 135-140) now its 155-160. Also I hit it straighter than I have with any other ball. I would have to say this ball is best with irons. Overall 5/5.
Off the wedges: Bounced off fairly quick and got up fast. Only rolled 5-6 yards after it hit the green (with a sandwedge) but the greens were soaked. Overall 4/5.
Off the putter: Good roll went with the grain pretty easily in the wet conditions. Averaged a 2 putt. Overall 5/5
Great ball that added a lot of distance compared to the other distance balls I used. I have found my new ball!
