Play this ball. I was coming to the site to post my comments after my first round with the My Tour Ball today and saw this thread, good timing. I am a 7 handicap (played poorly this winter, trending towards 4-5) with a driver swing about 105, same as PJ and also normally play the ProV1x. I hit a smooth 8 from 150 or a full 9 depending on the shot at hand. This ball is awesome. I saw the same distance increase on iron shots but closer to 10 yard gain with the driver. Shots around and on the green with the My Tour Ball are better than the ProV1x, one hop and stop which is what I am looking for. Same with wedges from 80-90 yards, one hop and stop, no silly 15 foot backspins. With the putter, it feels like the Titleist Professional did, that ball was the generation prior to the ProV, and as PJ says in the review, very soft but not mushy. This is simply the best ball I have ever played, granted it's only been one round, but that has been enough for me. Seriously. This is my new ball. Because I'm an awesome dude, I even gave my playing partner, who I had a $5 Nassau bet going, 2 of the balls to play with on the back 9. I got a text from him about an hour ago telling me that he had ordered 2 dozen balls when he got home, he was a ProV1x guy too. ( we shot the exact same score of 77 today, no money exchanged hands......I should have kept this to myself......) I would not have known about this ball if it hadn't been for PJ's initial "mini-review" on this forum, simply another reason why the GB forum is so valuable to frequent visitors. The giveaways are awesome here, there's no room for debate on that point, but for the drive-by readers who only come for the giveaways, they miss out on stuff like this. Thank you PJ.

I'm assuming from the username, this is from Mr. Dean Snell, creator of the Snell golf balls.
I will admit that I'm somewhat of a golf ball snob. Not that I'm only a Titleist ProV1 guy, but I do stick to the better balls. My golf balls of choice have been Titleist ProV1x, Callaway Hex Black and the TaylorMade Penta TP/TP5.
I was very objective about the Snell Tour Ball, but will say with confidence I really like this ball. The spin around the green was better than expected, on par with the ProV1x, but I got less spin off the long irons and drivers - which is absolutely what I want. I was able to get the ball to back-up with my Sand and Loft Wedges, and hop and stop with my Pitching and Gap Wedges.
I've often said that if Titleist would sell the ProV1/V1x at $30 a dozen, they would virtually wipe out every ball manufacturer. The characteristics and performance of the Snell 'My Tour Ball' does everything you could ask for in a golf ball. Could it spin more? Sure...but would that mean we'd get more overall spin off the driver/woods/hybrid and long irons? Probably - what I loved about this ball was being able to shape a tee shot, but not overcooking it - and still having plenty of grab around the greens. Being able to get these balls at $32 a dozen, shipped - this is my new ball of choice!

GolfBalled Nation - you really need to give these balls a shot - the performance is top-notch and we, as a golf community, should reward Snell Golf for delivering a performance golf ball at a great price! so they can continue to bring us quality golf balls at a reasonable cost.
