I'm not doing the 2020 Hard Rock Challenge this year... did it last time.  I don't like the feel of a hard ball off any club.

I play with a friend of mine; a 77-year old Marine Lt. Col.  He only plays Pinnacles.  Yesterday he shot 77.  Last month he shot 73.  Straight off the tee, straight off the fairway, and he can get up and down from anywhere.  Yes, you can learn to play well with any ball.

Know your game.  That's incredible.  Sign him up for the HRC and don't tell him 😆

Looking good fellas!  @StrawberryShortCake I feel your pain.  I said that after my first round this month and have unfortunately played 3 more rounds. What tees did you play?  @MaxEntropy  I've played 5 different rocks this month (2 of which were old Top Flite XLs) and the one glaring result was that the sound and feel of an XL is single handedly the most unique of any golf ball made.  The sound is like nails on a chalkboard.  I am fairly sure that they dimpled billiard balls.

Played the white tees. My course is blue, white,green,red. Red being the front most tees.

I've played some of my best rounds ever with mediocre balls.  I wonder how many folks that do a ball fitting end up with Pinnacle Gold as numero uno? 🤣

Going out this afternoon for a 9 hole round to capture photos and video for my review due tomorrow, but when I was playing this morning I found something I didn't expect in the used ball bin...

I have in my possession the Oncore Caliber, that's right, the steel core ball through sheer random luck. This afternoon it becomes my HRC round.

Busy day today.  As crazy as my schedule has been, combined with my itch to fish, I needed to get a HRC round in and some Align XL testing.  I played Madison Meadows in Ennis, MT.  To start things off, my (new to me) used ShotScope V2 had this to say after searching in GPS mode only... whaaat? 🤨

IMG_20200718_125929129.jpg.2261dc6ac0002d4ddda77f9ec2f921b1.jpg

So I texted my new friend/spy @Thin2win who informed me that "you have to load the course from the SS app into the watch"... umm, didn't I feel like the idiot 😆.  I thought, much like my Voice Buddy, they are preloaded.  It took about 10 minutes to load all the courses I play here and in Yuma, AZ.

IMG_20200718_133107597.jpg.90d1b5d37d1a483b8559fcb55ac596b3.jpg

With that little snafu behind me, I started my round.  I played 2 balls on the front nine; a Maxfli Tour and the ProV1 AlignXL.  I felt really good today and was flushing the ball. With temp in the low 80's, a dry wind at about 7 mph, and fairways drying out a bit, balls were really moving.  I hit my G410P driver better today than anytime I can recall since bagging it 🤗. I only missed three fairways; one finding a red staked hazard but that I could advance w/o penalty.

I pulled a Slazenger Select Distance and a Titleist Velocity out of the stash of rocks. I texted Chris which I should chose. He liked the "orange one", so that's the one I teed up  for my back nine.  The guy I played (Mark) with was hitting Pinnacles... don't know him, complete coincidence... but what are the odds?

#3 par 3 was straight into the wind today.  I hit my 5w and left a short putt for the deuce.

IMG_20200718_140046647.jpg.b581cd8e7fe190f7061c71bc67713ffd.jpgOn the

On hole #4, I flushed the drive and caught the downslope leaving me 60 yards according to SS.  A 269 yard entry for the long drive contest.  I would have loved to see how far it rolled but it cleared the crest and you cannot see them.  The driver kept me out of problems and, were it not for a bellied wedge on #14, would have likely avoided the double bogey.  A lucky 15 ft. putt on #16 yielded a second birdie and I had a reasonable shot at another on #17.

A really good day on the course and start to my HRC... I'll be hard pressed to top it.  I played from the blue tees and the course par/slope is 68.2/120.

I played another round today at Chatata Valley in Cleveland TN today, playing a lovey feeling Nitro ball. I don't have anything that would have come close to either a closest to the pin or longest drive. Shot a 51 to a 17.5 Arccos handicap hitting 4 fairways and one green. My putter and wedge killed me, I duffed one in a hazard and putted 21 times. 

I can't putt with this ball, at all. It is the auditory equivalent of nails on a chalk board, even off an Odyssey white hot insert. My ears are still ringing from the high pitched ting from even three footers. It's horrible. 

I'm planning another round tomorrow, hopefully I can pull a good round together.

I was just looking over my round in Arccos and saw my 5 wood off the tee on 9 didn't register with the system. I actually shot a 52 today.

I got another round in today, I was going to take the Wilson irons out and play with them but the wife is painting the bathroom and buried them in the closet. I didn't get to put my Arccos tags on them and I really want to get some data from them. I was going to take the time to dig them out yesterday, but I woke up not feeling good from the meatball sandwiches my wife made the night before and just wasn't feeling it.

My round today was played again at Chatata Valley from the white tees with a 17.5 Arccos handicap which has how jumped up to 18.1. 😭

Shot a 51 with 2 fairways hit, no greens, and 19 putts. I was playing great sitting at 7 over through 5 and 9 over through 6. Then the 7th hole happened. Hit a chunky drive with the 5 wood into the fairway, but about 20 yards shorter that I wanted, hit another 5 wood that went all duck hooky on me, then the pain began. I was visited by the spirit of El Hosel, the patron saint of the shells and he put a special blessing on my wedges. I couldn't chip the rest of the round and considered pulling a Phil and putting anything inside of 50 yards. 

I didn't, as I thought my putter might not like taking abuse from the Top Flite XL 2000 I was playing today. I also didn't think I needed a putter with a face that was somehow suddenly opened to 45 degrees. Might have made for some awkward putts. Which reminds me, I need to have the loft and lie checked on my clubs after putting them through hitting these rocks.

Welcome to the 2020 MGS Hard Rock Challenge! 
Your 2019 Defending Champion:  @sirchunksalot
2019 Long Drive Champ: @HardcoreLooper

After 1 year and a month, we're back like we never left!   For the third year running we put away our meticulously engineered tour balls to go back in time to a more simple day, the day where we played bargain basement priced artisanally crafted rocks.  In other words the finest budget golf balls made by the likes of Pinnacle, Callaway, Wilson, and the quintessential Top Flite.  Get ready to have your fillings rattled, your drivers tested, and your shot making ability thrown aside like the iron you just chunked 50 yards short of the green.

The past two challenges have been awesome and have taken a life of their own.  Friends and memories have been made. I want to thank you guys that keep coming back year after year to take part and you new contestants as well.  Your participation makes this competition special and it really wouldn't be possible without you.

As always this is a member run challenge, which means there are no sponsors and the official prize is bragging rights.  This is for fun and a way that we all can play a round of golf together in different places at different times.

Now onto the fun part...what's new for 2020!

The HRC planning committee has decided to make a couple of tweaks for this year.

  • New award  for most rounds played/submitted for score
    ***naming rights are open for the award( Rockstar, Hands of Granite, etc.)
  • Classic Rock (Molitor) vs. New Age (Nitro)
    • Which era was better?  Will there be a trend in the scores where classic rocks score better than new rocks?
      • Date of manufacture and whether or not the golf ball is still in production considered for placement into classic rock vs new age

Official Rules:

  • Rounds must be played from July 1 to July 31
  • You must use an approved hard rock for your 9 hole round to count. Picture of rock(s) used. 
    • Rule of thumb:  Ball must be a 2 piece surlyn covered rock.  Any ball with "soft" in it's name will DQ your round.
  • You may play as many times as you wish, best 9 holes submitted counts for score.
    • Need to include handicap, slope, and course rating for posting score.
  • 9 holes must include at least one par 5 and one par 3.

Conforming Ball List: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NoHAFkCrkf1mK7zt3wy3xILJYgOPj8aaOk35KNTHsuk/edit?usp=sharing

-Long drive rules:

  • Long drive in fairway, GPS verified, photo or screenshot must be included

-Closest to the Pin (Par 3 only)

  • Shots within 10ft of pin qualify, photo must be included
  • Measurement taken with heel-to-toe steps or by putter measurement.  Please list distance with picture and measurement taken.

***Scoring has been simplified to encompass handicap and course difficulty! 
{Gross Score-[(Slope/113)*((Handicap/2)]}+(72-Course Rating)


Example:

2100967023_Screenshot(39).thumb.png.4f2c39e6ef2b99a30e279cd4371a0f68.png

 

*Keep in mind banter is welcome and expected.  Feel free to provide a mini review of the rock used.  We like a good laugh! 

Good luck guys!   In the wise counsel of @PING Apologist #9, armor up!


 

Can anyone still enter this? Late I know, but I want to participate in the fun

@fixyurdivotI am all about having fun on the course, even if it hurts after.

I am also going to go thru my box of junk balls that we pick up and see if there are any worthy to be used. We are playing 18, I can use the Nike's for one half, I know I got at least a dozen of those, and whatever else is in the mix for the other ones.

I forgot to take videos this morning, we played 18 holes at Taylor meadows.

IMG_2414.jpg.23afca96ee4a8614258bbe8531096e75.jpg

Play the entire back nine with the Nike SuperFar ball.

IMG_2413.jpg.4d8e79c80afa5a4797e94e8a96308843.jpg

Here are my drives with it.

To be fair the 277 hit the cart path twice.

IMG_2417.jpg.747d61eb685ac3c4e3541fcfbd321e7a.jpg

For the front nine I played a Dixon earth, I picked up when I was helping one of my partners look for his ball.

IMG_2419.jpg.35cb846b25dad0f30df8ac18eabfcda2.jpg

I have never heard of this ball before.

IMG_2420.jpg.7b69c9fd0cdc6009619e5210fbe2f0ea.jpg

The drive on 3 was a massive slice by the tee box of 8. 

3rd.JPG.204d6d1a70a0bba2b9c901d6f59970a5.JPG

Pretty good distance, my longest "pure" drive of the day.

1527842787_back9.JPG.d464fc560d51395e5a7dc55aaedef107.JPG

In the par 3 6th, I hit a very nice shot in with a couple of feet of the hole, and still missed the putt.

6th.JPG.f805d5af8f43c2fb928b18697bdcae09.JPG

26 inches from the tip of the putter to the grip.

IMG_2423.jpg.59ce55fa00f4f614677b0ea98f99c449.jpg

Drove the to the fringe of the 8th hole, it seems that I hit a rock or a sprinkler head, because my ball "jumped" from the end of the fairway towards the green, I am not complaining of being lucky.

IMG_2426.jpg.4115e8d9760aaca020756c5d869fec6c.jpg

I 3 putted.

on our last hole, the 9th, I went for the green as it was only playing 240.

Straight in the water, I took a penalty and played a Nitro Golf Spalding Molitor, Orange that my buddy picked up from the woods earlier.

Drove my penalty drop short of the green and pitched in a couple puts later and I got a 6

I averaged 195 yards of the tee on all holes that were not par 3s.

We played from the whites, My 98 was the better score by 10 shots.

I hope to at least get honorable mentions on this prestigious, but brute competition.

I am going to try to play again Sunday, if my wrists are not swollen anymore.

I forgot to take videos this morning, we played 18 holes at Taylor meadows.

Play the entire back nine with the Nike SuperFar ball.

Here are my drives with it.

To be fair the 277 hit the cart path twice.

13th.JPG.2ae57ccfbf53ffc26eabe50a1cc09d3b.JPGIncredibly enough I was able to get some spin out of that ball a couple of times.IMG_2415.jpg.a24bd4e5604ed13c476a48508177476b.jpg

For the front nine I played a Dixon earth, I picked up when I was helping one of my partners look for his ball.

IMG_2419.jpg.35cb846b25dad0f30df8ac18eabfcda2.jpg

I have never heard of this ball before.

IMG_2420.jpg.7b69c9fd0cdc6009619e5210fbe2f0ea.jpg

The drive on 3 was a massive slice by the tee box of 8. 

3rd.JPG.204d6d1a70a0bba2b9c901d6f59970a5.JPG

Pretty good distance, my longest "pure" drive of the day.

In the par 3 6th, I hit a very nice shot in with a couple of feet of the hole, and still missed the putt.

6th.JPG.f805d5af8f43c2fb928b18697bdcae09.JPG

26 inches from the tip of the putter to the grip.

Drove the to the fringe of the 8th hole, it seems that I hit a rock or a sprinkler head, because my ball "jumped" from the end of the fairway towards the green, I am not complaining of being lucky.

I 3 putted.

Clearly the HRC is for you.  What the hell is a "Dixon" golf ball... or is it an "Earth" golf ball? I'm almost afraid to ask what the recycled logos mean 🤣.
