167 mph golf swing ... broken golf balls, broken birdie balls

Still hitting balls out back; still seeing some very high swing speeds at times (>130 mph) and still breaking golf balls. If these were actual numbers I would play my hand at a Long Drive competition, a Senior one of course...

I recently bought a backup or practice 6 iron. I am playing with MP60's and have a MP62 as a practice club - it's very nice and close to my game club. Even this club will see speeds in the 120's and 130's.

The above photo shows the ball mark on the face, just a little high of dead center. This was before I cut the rubber tee down to the correct height. Then a few swings later ended up breaking the base off the rubber tee. They normally don't last very long, but this one lasted a couple months - longest yet!

This is not a Titleist commercial, but I have and hit balls of all brands and to date I've not had a Titleist ball split, crack or break. These balls are under stress as they are stored outside and hit most every day. I've never bought any ProV1(x) balls (yet) but will find them on occasion when I play and have found them to be nice. Those ones stay in my bag - not out back.

Looking forward to my next round. I normally start with my 3 wood on the first hole or two, but am about ready to use my driver more. Especially if I can connect one of these swings and keep it in play .. it'd be fun to see what happens!
