It's been a while since i did a review on golf so i thought i would return back to my natural habitat! I will once again stress how golfing equipment will not turn a beginner into a pro, or vice versa, so don't go out and buy the best stuff and then expect to be tiger woods over night. However, if you are a good golfer, then great equipment will make you a better than good golfer - it will improve your game. Golf balls are a key part of this, and playing with the right ones, that suit both your game and your wallet, is something which must be considered when heading out onto the course.
The HP Tour
Length - Not an area where this ball really excells in my opinion. Yes it travels well, and better than a cheaper ball, such as a top flite, but it certainly won't add yards and yards to your game. In this respect it is similar to a Srixon Soft Feel, which is not surprising considering they have similar technology within them, being soft feel.
Feel and Spin - Again, being like the Srixon, this is an area where this ball excells. On the putting surface it really feels nice to strike, you feel that you have good control over the line and length of your putts, which is obviously important. Also, when applying spin to the ball, you will struggle to get better than this ball. It really allows you to apply it, particularly back spin, in my experience, and if you pitch the ball past the flag expect to see it roll back down towards the hole pretty sharpish - a nice experience for any golfer, and one that will earn you shots.
Durability - I have played with these for a while and they are still in good nick. I always think that if you buy from a reputable make like Titleist, then you really should not have a problem.
I think these balls are retailing at about £2 a ball nowadays. This is quite good given the quality of them, and well worth the price if you can find a bargain.
A good all rounder - well worth a buy and a try.
Summary: Good all rounder.
