The best ad for a product is when a product is chosen for its design and performance. The ad for Titleist which features the statistics from the amateur, club pros and tour pros championships, and the clubs played- tells it all. The lowest statistic was the tour pros, they will play with anything for the money. The highest ranking was with the juniors and amateurs. Titleist is #1 in every department except drivers on the pro tour, you can figure that one out$$$$.

I noticed the Titleist V1 makes exactly the same Splash as a Nike One when the player pulls them into the drink. The distance is nearly a match to the hazard entry point.

The only real difference I can see is the player may decide to go diving for the more expensive ball or will search the woods forever, holding up play.

Come on guys just play some recycles so we can speed up the round.

It isn't as much the ball as it is how well you strike the ball......

I totally agree that for most players the ball makes little difference. I actually addressed that topic a few weeks ago. I just can't believe that with the money that is spent on advertising, some of these companies don't make a better effort. If I'm ever going to spend $35 on a dozen (which I sometimes foolishly decide to do before playing a special course) I'm not going to be buying Bridgestones, and I'm not ever going to buy the J-Max hybrid simply commercials annoy me.

Commercials are commercials the way I see it, take them as they come. The only thing that is going to make me buy into a product is usually going to be the word of mouth or a review.

Golfers are lucky in the fact that usually, we can try out a club before we buy it through the use of a simulator at the store.

Balls? Damn, I would never pay more than 25 bones for a dozen balls.

Those MacGregor "Badds" commercials flat-out sucked a few years back. He has won next to nothing, as did the commercials. The worst golf commercials were the Nike "Ball Go Far" hairballs from a few years back. What bile! I am so bored when Titleist name-drops all the players who play their ball...like we have anything in common with them?!?! Right now, Cobra (Titleist's little company that could) is riding the wave, with Camilo, JB, Ogilvy and the lunatic tv guy. Feherty is the Robin Williams of tv golf...just wind him up and let him go, straight to the bank!

I am guessing that many comments here are not from Low Handicap Golfers. I can tell you I hate paying $48 plus tax a dozen for Golf balls but the Pro V1 for a 4 handicap and below is without equal. No Offense I use a $50 Tenis racket and a $700 one would not help my game but for those with certain skill levels it makes all the difference. When I get to be 95 years old I will switch to the Titleist Carry ball with Hieght as it goal. I am in Marketing and I whole heartedly agree that many national ads make me certain that the producers and the folks that sign up to spend tens of millons are ALL on drugs or drunk to create/payfor some of the stuff that is TERRible. My 2 cents.
