This illegal ball only flies straight! Shiels video


Recommended Posts

Quite a fun video and he seems to show it actually works.  Not for me but maybe good for beginners or golfers who don't take it that seriously.

A buddy of mine bought some of these balls a few years ago hoping they would help his game! I tried one with my crappy swing. While they do tend to go straight, if you put a bad swing on them they will knuckleball. I mean you can literally see the ball moving back and forth. I ended up about 50 yards shorter than normal. When they weren’t helping his game he chucked all of them into the creek on a par 3.

I guess I don't get it?

If you want to learn to play golf, why would you use a ball that goes straight (for the most part) no matter what swing you put on it? How will this improve your skill? How good could/would you feel about your score knowing you really didn't have control of a good portion of it?

I can see it for the very casual player as a way to keep the game interesting and keep play moving along instead of looking for balls, but other than that...................................

I love Rick’s vids. This one was especially fun, given his reactions and the group he came upon while playing. Great stuff to watch right before bed!

I think I know a guy that would be all in on this. He's one of those guys that's willing to try anything. I remember a few years ago, we were playing a round, and he wasn't hitting his typical "power fade" (some may call it a slice off the planet), but his ball was also not carrying very far because it wasn't spinning enough. I finally asked him what was going on. It turns out that he bought this stuff off Amazon that you are supposed to rub all over your driver face and it will eliminate side spin. Apparently it almost eliminates all spin. I've seen videos where Vaseline does the same thing. I'll have to give him a heads up about these balls. I'm sure he'll have them on order in no time and it will be entertaining for me to watch.
