  1. Have you guys seen this? The text below is not mine, I stole it from somewhere, now I know why some of my shots go off centre if the ball is squashing like this on my club....ha! No one has a swing speed of 150 mph, including Tiger Woods who is just under 130 mph. I had no idea the golf ball compresses this much. But first a little history I recently learned: 1- The Pro V-1 golf ball by Titleist is actually a three part ball, but you have to have a club head speed of at least 100 mph or more to be able to compress all three stages...If you don't the ball never fully compre
  2. I played every day after getting laid off, must have played 200 games last year, it sort of gets old when weighed against looking for work to feed the family. Golf...food...golf..food, tough one.

  3. Just downloaded to my iTouch, installs the IPBoard app, then you have to enter the IP address for MyGolfSpy, just enter without the and it is good to go.
  4. Do you know your trouble Boz? You are a professional who understands customer service, a real dinosaur. You will frighten the other guys if you are not careful, chances are they don't bother with these forums so you will be ok. What a concept - play with gear that the pros don't use and improve your game. Extend this concept to clubs and you could have lots of people enjoying their golf more, playing faster, not frustrated and not "having" to spend tons on the latest Pro clubs they could never hit. I know there are a few out there doing that but there are so many bad ones it gives the rest a b
  5. Musqueam was my local for the past few years, lived in Dunbar, played mud golf all winter, not bad $250 for 5 months golf! Good way to lose balls, hit the fairway and ...gone! Buried. Just moved back to Richmond so started playing the Mylora courses again, cheap enough but my favourite is Country Meadows, best shortish course anywhere, best drained and good golf. Played Green Acres lots, ventured further afield to Peace Portal, ideal for a workout!, Nico Wynd is excellent for a 9 hole/2 pin placement course but full size, best deal anywhere is Newlands in Langley, excellent course and cheap, l
  6. AWINCEY, where do you play? Glad you like the balls also. I can see that I am going to have to actually buy some of these balls at some point!
  7. Hey Pom! Now that is what I call "going whole hog", is there anything you don't have? Boz must love you! I would like to get back to Brisbane next year, being currently unemployed is a bit of a drawback as I have to choose between eating and playing golf, I know - no brainer really, so I play golf. I was thinking of asking my good friend in BNE, Ted Potts, to buy and send me some Pinkies as I am intrigued with the write ups. I used the balls for the first time this week; first of all on an open field with a mowed straw texture, only used my 60 deg Woods Bros wedge but found all the balls w
  8. Thing is you never see golf fans try to catch a ball, wonder why that is. Difference between rounders, sorry baseball and golf I guess.
  9. I was born and raised in Bolton, Lancashire, joined the Army when I was 17 in 1969 and frankly rarely went home. Been all over courtesy of HM and most places i liked, even the Falklands and Belfast. I really like Brisbane and would like to go back to visit and play golf. Been in Canada this past 21+ years, lived in Medicine Hat and experienced the hottest summer and coldest winter on record and escaped to Vancouver, been here since but still travelled a lot. Really impressed with the look of the Boz golf balls and looking forward to trying them out. I will be chipping and pitching a good bit w
  10. I have to echo "pfingst's" comments! Wayne, the package arrived today, thank you very much; someone put a lot of thought into presentation, a veritable feast hits the eyes. Very impressive first impression, I can't wait to hit the course with these although they are too pretty to spoil! Before I even use them I can tell you they "outshine" any so called high visibility golf balls that I have seen. Yellow does not equal high vis but yours do. I am going to be have to be careful where I use these, last thing I want is to be able to tell you how well I can see them in the bottom of the pond.
  11. Not for non-US, again. Don't click Canucks. There must be some of these that apply to the frozen north. Oops, sorry, duplicate posting.
  12. Happy to join in, it would be nice to try something other than the Pro V1s etc etc that we feel to have to "because the pros" do. my handicap is my swing and my game. ...if not too late of course and if you allow Canadians in (I am a Brit too so twice the value)
  13. Don't waste your time Canucks, another US only one
  14. Thanks for the response, yours was the only one so I guess nobody else has this problem. Yes, this is the approach I had considered but I wondered if someone had some magic touch but experience shows that there is no short cut in anything, so sanding and polishing I will go, colour matching is the hard part.
  15. I am looking forward to seeing these "real people" reviews. Should be interesting.
  16. OK, so from time to time I have swung a club so hard and erratically that I have gone under the ball on the tee and scratched the top surface of my driver and wood, well now they are starting to look a bit ugly and it is obvious I am a sky-baller even though I have mostly solved that problem. I would like to know what methods people use to repair the finish. I have polished and polished but need a better method short of just painting a new finish. Any ideas?
  17. PW for up to 125 yards 52 deg for up to 110 yds 56.12 for up to 90 yds 60.04 for flop shots and up to about 70 yds. I fill the yardage gaps by swinging harder, I think I can thin my sandwedge about 170 yards without thinking, which happens more than I like! Sorry folks, I had already answered this.
  18. Entry only valid for US residents NOT Canada, again, oh well.
  19. I mark mine with a black "S" but if playing a hole with out of bounds with houses close by I play a ball with no markings - just in case!
  20. I use the Woods Bros 60 and 56 deg wedges, just great, I practice with a Callaway 56 deg - 14 wedge which I also like, I also use a crappy Paradise Black Chrome, with all the "chrome" rubbed off! but it does allow me to open the club by having 2 x sole angles and fits nicely between the PW and the 52 deg. It's what you like and what works for you.
  21. I too prefer a simpler system, I cannot imagine changing the face or even angles during a round or at the range, if I need a different club what I do is put the club I am using back in the bag and take out another one, no tools needed, nothing to go wrong...except when I pull out the wrong one and don't read the label. I will stick to my trusty Wood Bros wedges, the only thing wrong with them is the idiot swinging them.
