Take the Hard Rock Challenge


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

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:

 

Totally down with some parameters for this. It's been a minute since I used balls like this, so I'd love to go back and see what I could do now.

I think this sounds like a great time. I'll see what I can dig out of the shag bag that might fit the bill.

The Top Flite “The Bomb” is actually a decent ball. But I also have 2 boxes of Top Flite XLs I need to get rid of. So I'm in.

I might now be able to play this weekend. I'd forgotten the club is holding it's annual Sandbagging - double kegger 2-man partnership. I didn't make arrangements elsewhere.   :(

I don't have many... usually hit them at the range when my bucket is empty and I'm not about to PAY for some...

BUT... I did find 2 Top Flite XL with the BU logo, a Wilson TC2 and a Callaway CB1 red...

 

Do any of these (or all) count?

Well spies... #HardRockChallenge COMPLETED!

 

I started with a Pinnacle Gold ... a little scuffed up.

attachicon.gifDSC05420.JPG

 

Wasn't having too much fun with that one so I switched to a Wilson TC2 (with some sort of stripe on it?)

attachicon.gifDSC05422.JPG

 

After I hit my tee shot I was browsing along and came upon this beauty!

attachicon.gifDSC05423.JPG

 

There was no way I was going to let a chance to play the "Desperado" pass me by!

 

I was tempted though because I found this one in the rough too.

attachicon.gifDSC05427.JPG

 

Classic "Super" Titanium...but he was not about to knock my Desperado out.

 

I actually hit the Desperado pretty good with my irons... best of the day here:

attachicon.gifDSC05425.JPG

 

 

All in all it was a "Sterling" day...

attachicon.gifDSC05431.JPG

 

The skies were blue...

attachicon.gifDSC05430.JPG

 

And I wasn't in Cleveland...

attachicon.gifDSC05432.JPG

 

 

Fun challenge but boy did I wince when I knew I had to hit more than iron off the tee !!

I ended up at 4 over.... I could play one of these balls if I absolutely had to.  :)

Great write-up Stroker! Loved all the pics too! So has the feeling returned to your hands yet?

Thanks.... funny you should ask... after the round I went to a range about 2 miles away and hit about 60 range balls just to get some feeling back into my fingers!

Sorry guys for taking so long on getting a hardrock contest post written.  I planned to have it done Friday but we had a "minor" surprise happen at work and consequently these past 3 days have been completely out of whack.  Now on to the good stuff, our hardrock tournament begins!  I didn't want to threadjack so I created a new thread.  Click the link and lets get to it!

Should be interesting. :ph34r:

This contest isn't real until someone puts one of these gorgeous spheres into play...

Militors are too good.

 

So should we move to the other thread?

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I picked a few rocks out of the range bucket today to try a round with.... Can't bring myself to use them on course. It's like taking a Yugo for a spin, cool, yet not. I'll stick to my Ferrari's.

I spoke with Plaid about the concept of a comp and he gave his blessing to get it started, but mentioned it may be better in a new thread.  Really the idea behind it was to get more people involved in trying out the hard rock challenge and to keep a record of how everyone fared. Didn't want to threadjack nor take away from what Plaid started and what is a great idea.  

 

I'll follow where the community takes it and keep up with how everyone is doing whether in this post or the competition post.
