Since there aren’t near ranges where I live and courses memberships and fees are expensive, I have searched for alternatives.
Found the famous Birdie balls and the Almost Golf Balls and yesterday I came across this new ball: Sci-Core practice ball: here’s a link to a video of them: https://youtu.be/sjVC1mCJEF4
I have to admit they look good at least. They seem to be similar to the Almost Golf Balls.
Has anyone from this forum tried them? Would love to see your reviews and experiences

The New Year has arrived and it's time to turn our attention to the PGA Tour! Get ready for the:
2019 MYGOLFSPY FANTASY GOLF LEAGUE
The MGS community lends itself to large fantasy leagues which boost the drama to nail-biting hair-pulling levels (just ask @blackngold_blood). This will be a great opportunity to connect with fellow posters and chat about the PGA Tour all summer long. @Berg Ryman and I will be your humble commissioners. The format will change from last year and we're working with Fantrax to see if they can add a new option for the season/playoffs. If that doesn't pan out, we have a plan B that we'll roll out. Both options will be geared to maximize drama during the season and in the playoffs.
In the meantime, it's time to start gathering players. So, who's in??
Platform: Fantrax Buy-In: Free Draft: January 30, 2019 9:00PM EST (can be changed by popular demand) Draft Format: TBD pending league size Format: Head 2 Head - Details TBD Scoring: See Below League Size: As big as we can get while remaining even 1st Tournament: AT&T Pebble Beach - February 7, 2019 Playoffs: During FedEx Playoffs Prize: 😉
For returning players, the 2018 league has been renewed and all of your profiles carried over. There's no action required from you on the Fantrax side, but please confirm your interest in this thread. Until your name below says confirmed, you're not in the league:

For simplicity, the point values were reduced by the highest common divisible (5). Anything that used to be worth 5 points, is now worth 1; anything that was 10, is now 2 and so on. The scaling and weight is exactly the same as before. The only new category is Par for 1/2 point to keep course setup from blasting our players.

In addition to expressing interest, please comment on any changes you'd like made to the scoring or format. No promises that they'll be incorporated, but now is your chance to make recommendations. Stay tuned for more details. Good Luck!

While at the PGA Show I had the opportunity to stop by the Under Armour Golf booth and check out all the latest in it's line of apparel, shoes and accessories. I made off with these two cool pair of shades that we are giving away to two lucky forum members. To be eligible, you have to be a forum member. Then it's a simple as posting below which model you would prefer.
1) Big Shot Tuned Golf ideal for wearing on the course during play
2) Glimpse Tuned Recovery, designed to help your eyes de-stress after the round and return to a natural state,
Both can be used on the course and the Big Shot Golf Tuned is one of the few golf sunglasses that are officially rated safe for driving a vehicle.
So tell us below which one you would choose to win and Good Luck!!
Entries will be closed on Sunday February 3rd at 11:59 PM EST The two winners will be announced in this thread by Tuesday February 5, 2019.
