Wilson Zip's count?

I actually have a dozen of those in my bag, and find them to be almost the exact opposite of a rock.  I've hit one of those and had to look down to see if it was still there or not. :P

 

I'd be happy to take some advice.  I have an old shoe box that has some Pinnacle Gold's, some Top-Flite XL 2000's, some Top-Flite XL 3000's and some TI-Tech's.  Suggestions?

 

Regardless of what the ball is, I'm with DLK.  There's no way I'm hitting them with my new G400 Max.

I've played the Slazenger raw distance balls recently for fun. Only thing I had to really adjust for was the run out on approach shots. Around the green I was able to keep it in check usually lol

Yeah I know they are soft. I was trying to cheat a bit. But I'm fine to look for some nitros.

Since all of us here in the MGS Forum are such bad a$$ golfers where only the finest of equipment will work for our precision pro tour game; I've got a challenge for you hackers... should you choose to accept it.

 

The next round you play; use for example: Pinnacle Gold, Warbird, Ultra, Nitro, etc. You get the idea. Rocks. No urethane balls. I'm talking about the balls that come packaged 15 or more per box for $10!! If you don't have one or two of these type balls just look around your course for 5 minutes or ask someone in the bag room.

 

Ok.. I'll cut you some slack. You'll only have to sacrifice 9-holes for this important challenge. (that's all I'm gonna do!) Let's see how much pain & suffering and cussing is caused by using one of these beasts. Or not?

 

Hey lighten up! It's still golf. :unsure:

Is that a lap steel?

I don't know if it's a lap or pedal steel, but that looks like a Pinnacle Exception on the right. That is a great ball and nothing like a Pinnacle Gold.

That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure. I think you can get arrested for hitting any of those balls with a G400, though.

That pic of the 3 balls was taken on the strings of my pedal steel. It's an older model (left hand and rare) BMI 3-pedal single neck. It makes some pretty sweet music. I'm not a great player by any means but I do alright.

It's for sale if any is interested.  :)

Guys and gals, I am working on piecing together an actual competition for the Hard Rock challenge.  There could be a prize or two included for you lucky (skilled) winners.  Stay tuned.

 

P.S.  I know we are all playing at different courses.  Think of it as a fantasy tournament...but with real life.  Which makes perfect sense  :huh:
