Ok golf pros, need a good answer here. I have around a 100 mph swing speed, have good clubs and have about a 20 handicap (because I am consistently inconsistent). I have relatively good control and average distance for an amateur. I tend to lose 3 or balls per round due to "those" shots. I want a durable ball that will have some bite into the green. Tried precept recently and got good results, but cut several balls (without hitting trees or cart paths). Need some good suggestions and ProV1 cannot be everyone's answer (because of cost). Thanks in advance.5 AnswersGolf7 years ago
Looking for a semi-gaming laptop. Interested in playing SWTOR on it. Pretty sure both will handle it, but I need a tech person or gamer's 2nd opinion. Please and thank you.
