Definitely going to be wearing a helmet and a cup that is for sure. Finding a chest protector might have to be the easiest find versus a flak jacket.

Ooooh, you're killing me, Smalls 🙂

 

I think the Nitros are all gone, and the pink Slazenger Raw Distance balls are low compression. I need a new weapon. Suggestions welcome. 

Who is Baby Ruth?

Some of those Raw Distance balls weren't low compression and were definitely distance rocks, I can't remember which ones though.  I will try to remember to check my shag bag tonight, I might be able to send you a rock or two.  In the meantime check the link from last year's competition.  One of those first posts has a list of conforming balls that might help.  No name brands area also a safe bet. 

For those that are really daring the nearest river or creek bed will provide some very smooth and natural Top Flite XLs. 

OR--ball searching during a round on your nearest muni will generally turn up with 3 or 4 qualifiers.

The few rounds I played as a kid, we would find those things EVERYWHERE.  So between those, Golds, and XLs, the Ti-Techs were the water balls 😆

Last year, I bought several buckets of golf balls at Goodwill to take them to the local First Tee.  And shortly afterward, they decided they didn't want donated balls, so they are in my garage.  I went through a couple of them, finding no end of Top Flites and Pinnacle Golds.  So I'm nicely stocked.  But I hoped, I searched, I prayed for the hard rock holy grail:  the Molitor.  And then I found one.  And another.  And a third, a fourth and a fifth.  Five Molitors!

 

My precious indeed.  The question is... will I have any teeth left at the end of the round?

I can honestly say I've never heard of a Molitor.
What's the 422 stand for? The compression?

It's the number of dimples, but it could easily be confused as the compression.

It's also the number of years these things will last, as they are the hardest substance known to man.  I'll try to get some audio when I hit it.  The sound it makes is earsplitting.

The day is here.  Check the rules in the first post and let the rocks fly!  Remember to post the score for your best 9, the course you played, slope and course rating, and a picture of that finely shaped ball of pure golfing excellence. 

If you have a long drive or closest to the pin qualifier, let us know!
