MG Senior ball?

Recommended Posts

Received an email this morning from MG golf advertising their new "Senior" ball. Unfortunately, it's non-conforming due to initial velocity. MG claims it's 1.5 clubs longer than a conforming ball.

Personally, I'm disappointed they are selling an illegal ball. Senior or no Senior.... I wouldn't buy/play it.

Some of the old dudes might jump on board as they don't play by the rules anyway.  I know one player who is still using his belly putter.  He's 77 and say's he has no plans of ever giving it up. We have a senor group that plays a blitz every Tuesday where money is involved and little side bets too however no one cares what other guys choose to do.   Some have more than 14 clubs in their bags but again, no one cares.  I don't know of any of the guys who play in a USGA tournament. It's a local thing and it's up to the individual as to what they do.  

 

Personally I don't see myself playing with this ball however I wouldn't care if someone who was handicapped or not having fun because of a distance issue using this ball.

I'm with ole gray on this one who gives two hoots about the USGA anyhow? I do know some of the retirees men's leagues around here voted last year to disregard the anchored putter ban and allow it in their groups. i do know some of those guys play the non conforming Bandit balls too. After all they are staying in the game and having fun and that is what it is all about. Some of that same bunch at several courses play non-conforming Soooo-Long drivers too because I built them when we had the golf shop!!

 

I am retired from comp now and technically my older pre 2012 wedges are non-conforming. I play in several different groups with different games and no one cares there either. Now I have lost some distance with age but right now I play conforming balls but see no problem with others if they choose to do so

No shot that claim is close to accurate. That means my good drives would be going close to 500yds. Hell even if its 1.2X longer I wouldn't believe it.

 

If it does though... Hellooooo scramble tee ball and driving par 5s  B)

Clubs longer, not times longer. I took that to mean maybe an extra 10-15yds

I have to agree with big Stu..who gives two s**ts about the usga. I did replace my belly putter with a Scotty, but I still bring it out every once in awhile. The usga has been holding the game back for too long.

That is why I dropped my USGA membership after 20 plus years 3 years ago. They are not for the betterment of the game they are for the betterment of their pocketbook. The groove issue got me started. We have an informal bunch of us over on WRX if you look on their signature mine included you will see proud member of the OGA which means Outlaw Golf Association. No dues etc just a like minded bunch of guys who play what they want to and do not give two hoots about the USGA,R&A or the PGA for that matter. None of us keep a legimitate rules conforming handicap or play sanctioned events.

I think you need to start one up here on MGS and  you got one new member right here.  Yea they loss me when they banned the belly and titty putters.  Add in a couple rulings where they screwed around with Dustin Johnson and that was all I needed.

Play what makes the game fun in the way that you play it. Obviously not for official tournament play, but if it puts some joy into the weekly play group as you hit it deeper, play on. Not going to rub my rhubarb one bit.

Here's the deal with me. Me and the guys I play with play serious and for money. But not huge amounts; but money. And it's fun! I'll be damn as will anyone else in the game allow me or anyone else to compete with an illegal ball. Be it, the MG Senior, Condor, Polaria, etc. In our game that's cheating.

However, if you and me go brush it around some afternoon to have a Pepsi afterwards...fine. Go for it. Hell, you don't even have to putt out. I'll give you par on each hole if you like. But, if you want to come play in our game you better not ever get caught cheating or playing illegal equipment.

What if my ball goes all DJ and moves before or as I put my putter behind it. You calling it on me?  :rolleyes:

Hmmm? Let me think about that Under.

Normally I probably would not. But since you're a scratch player (kicking the sh$t out of an old 6 handicapper with no strokes!) and you have me 6 down already on the front alone; I'll have to inform you that there "might" be a penalty assessed after the round. Could even be as much as a 13 strokes! Of course I'm assuming you're not playing a Condor an DQ'd.

How else will I win? :D

I agree with everyone that's for more fun, but at the same time plaid jacket has a point. I play in a weekly skins game, and I'm curious how much Vaseline on driver faces or illegal balls there are in play at a given time.

 

Now it's a different story if we agree beforehand to forego rules. After all, everyone is allowed to move it a scorecard anyways, so what's the point of observing long putters or balls?

 

There's got to be a happy medium when it comes to money games. As far as pure recreation, though, do what keeps you coming back.

If we are playing for money and you think an illegal golf ball or wedge is gonna be the difference then you have already lost my friend. Golf is 95% in your head ..iv learned that.

Jonny I have to agree with ya....   Golf is soooooooo mental and I don't care if you have a belly putter, hawt balls, illegal grooves or anything else proclaimed  illegal, if you don't have a strong mind, you are not gonna win at any level.

 

If you would have given Tiger Woods one of them fancy wedges that allow you to get out of any type lie back when he was struggling with chipping, it would not have helped. He would have still made a mess like a bear in a honey drinking contest.

it's true, I play my best golf with strangers. The guys I play with like to get in each other's heads and most of the time it isn't fun.
