kingsskierI wouldn't doubt that it's me destroying the ball.
However, it doesn't happen with any of the other balls I have played.
I have a very fast and strong swing because I am so tall, I get a ton of angular momentum. If I'm using my driver with the shaft custom length for me (not legal length for tournament play but I'm 6'8" so it is long giggity), I can regularly drive 320. I hit 300 with my standard length driver consistently and easily (/claim). All of my clubs are about 20 yards further than they should be.
If you want to say I'm over swinging, I'm not. I get the right spins and heights that I want.
I still may be contacting wrong and breaking the Pro V1s, but since it isn't happening with other balls and my buddy scuffed the shit out of a few with his irons, I'm inclined to say it's the durability of the ball. Also, this was two different dozens bought at different stores.
For how good I am, I shot a 75 today on a fairly difficult 72, but I am regularly around the low 80s. I haven't calculated my handicap in a while since we usually play straight up and I don't really play tournaments or anything ever.
That's sweet you can hit a 300-320 yard drive...lots of half decent golfers can hit a good ball off of the tee man. It's also awesome that you're 6'8" and your angular momentum allows you to hit the golf ball 20 yards further than your friend who is fat and 5'7" compared to your lanky ass.
Bubba Watson who averages a 123 MPH swing speed and 313 yards off the tee uses a Pro V1X.
At the end of the day its all about feel, most people say that the Pro V1 is more reactive around the greens and on the putting green, but doesn't fly as far as the Pro V1X off the tee, similarly most people find the Pro V1X generally less responsive within 100 yards when compared to the Pro V1.
If your golf balls are getting scuffed on every shot it may be the grass you are playing on, it also could be with how clean your clubs are...there are so many possible factors...I wouldn't doubt that it is you destroying the ball...it definitely is you, just for reasons other than the ones you think.
