Finally the snow has melted and I can get back to doing one thing I love to do, GOLF!  Now that my golf schedule is up and running (unless it snows again), I’ve got two new pieces of gear I’m currently working on upcoming reviews.

I’ve played a couple of rounds now with the new Titleist ProV1x.  My first round was in Orlando in January, when I was pretty rusty. My 2nd was a couple of days ago when I played solid yet still had my clock cleaned by my pals. So far I like the new ProV1x a lot.  It isn’t as hard as previous models so my granny 100mph swing can compress it.  The ball’s surface is definitely different than previous models. More to come.

My pals at Rife Putters have been very cool to sponsor this year’s HOG Space Fantasy league with a putter as a prize.  I’ve got two Rife putters in my review queue, the first being the very nice IBF Tour Aussie Black.  I played my first round with this one a couple of days ago and when I made the right adjustments in my stance and stroke, I started dropping bombs from all over the place.  Stay tuned.

    As you review the Titleist ProV1, could you outline the different versions of this ball that are on the market? If my memory serves, there are at least three iterations of it and the ProV1x.
