I play ProV1's and find them at discount golf stores, used golf ball dealers, and on eBay for much cheaper than a brand new dozen. If you can get at least A grade balls they still give you the benefits you are looking for. Usually can get them for under $20 a dozen.

What ball were you using to get to a 3 hndcp? Is it still available? If so, keep using it. If not try the Bridgestone line of the e-6, or e-7. Their B-330 is priced along the same lines as the PV-1, but plays the same as their "e" series for me. Another one I might suggest is to try the Volvik Crystal line of balls if they are available to you. The Wilson Staff 50 ball is not a bad choice either. It's pretty good around the green for me. I play the Bridgestones only because they have a good price, and are more readily available in my area.

....................

I would have your driver clubhead speed checked first. If your driver clubhead speeed is above 105mph, I would go w/ the Bridgestone B330 S golfball or the regular B330 tour ball. The Taylormade Penta is good as well.

I play Bridgestone B-330. I have also played with the proV1's but I have better success with the Bridgestone line of golf balls.

The NXT Tour is not a bad choice or one of the Bridgestone balls that fits your swing speed. I think you can get the bridegstone balls at Golf Galaxy for under $30 a dozen. You can also check eBay and spend about $100 for a large amount of balls that will last you nearly all year.

I agree after trying the Bridestone e6 that it has a great feel for the shortgame, the putts feel nice, feels more like rubber than plastic which it great for the long game and short game.. The B-330 are also great on the feel, better than generic golf balls.

You might want to try the Callway iS, these are great on the putting feel as well, the weight is more balanced.

Titleist pro v1x is by far the best and go ahead spend the money; low handicaps can make a dozen balls last an entire season. I buy 1 dozen and play them for 6 months; it's all about fairways and greens and I play in florida where there is great amount of water and hazards.
If you are a low handicapper like me, why quibble over spending another $20 more when you are getting something you know you can depend on=that's why 96% of all pro's play titleist.

DennisM will become famous soon enough
In the past 2 years since you last played, there's been a reasonable amount of development in golf ball technology. Some of the best name brand high end balls are still out there under the same names, (Titleist Pro-V series, Bridgestone B330 series, Srixon high end balls), but what has grown almost exponentially in the market is the selection of middle level balls like the Titleist NXT or the Bridgestone e5 and e6 balls.

My point is, it's all going to depend on your game and finding what works best for you. I've known low handicap players who had very different games from one another and these days, would most suitably use very different balls.

If you hit it real long off the tee, versus shorter, but very accurately, your considerations are going to be different.

The search is half the fun.
