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 🤣.

I guess the recycle logo is because they are Eco friendly. Earth is one of the models that Dixon offers, they also have a wind, fire and spirit lines, and they are somewhat expensive, their fire line goes for 74.99 a dozen. I need to find me one of those.

Please be careful sir... I’ve read that thinning one of those long irons with one of those balls could register seismic activity and trigger a fault line earthquake. Sent from my iPhone using Tapat

So I wonder what the half-life is on one of these "proprietary polymers" vs. a ProV1's "proprietary polymers"?

@Tony Covey MGS another candidate for the saw... and perhaps the next round of ball testing? 😆.

Before I lost it to the pond, that ball had gotten pretty beat up, even with the scuffs it was still holding up well.

I played 8 full holes with it.

I have played 18 holes with the same ProV1x before I could not use it anymore, because it was really bad.

I played my second 9 hole round on Wednesday; this time at Beaverhead CG in Dillon, MT. I played 27 holes and chose the second nine for my HRC round.  Rummaging through my selection of rocks, I chose a Pinnacle Rush - a found ball and one I've never seen before. It seemed the logical choice being that the course was not too crowded and I was in no rush. Not sure if it meets our hard rock requirements? 

thumbnail?appId=YMailNorrinLaunch

Staged for liftoff... in three, two, one.

thumbnail?appId=YMailNorrinLaunch

I did not strike the ball as well as my first round but scored well.  No KP's or LD's that better round #1. I'm starting to think these low end, often disparaged and made fun of balls, are my best fit ... simply can't argue the results 🤩.

Using the formula in our IM thread, I calculate round 1 at net 35.43 and this round at 35.63... but maybe I have the slope portion goofed? 

I'm hoping to get at least 2 more rounds in before the contest concludes... maybe we need to extend the deadline as I haven't seen to many entries yet.

Finally got a round completed in the HRC. Actually I was actually playing on Wednesday but that pesky job interfered and only played 6 holes. Later I determined that it was a non-conforming ball anyway. It was a Volvek Vivid, well it felt too good and spun too much to qualify for this. So I returned today with a found Titleist Velocity and a Top Flight more roll, and a Srixon Marathon.

First, I have a confession to make. My official handicap 14.1 and a 12 on these tees at my home course. This is (was) a true handicap until 2 weeks ago. At that point, I got to play golf once or twice a week for the last 3 years and a 2 year absence before that. I would often go two weeks without touching a club.

About 2 1/2 weeks ago, I had a bit of a job change, and now I am home most days and, in theory, I can play golf everyday. In reality, I have played just one round during the week but have gotten to go to the range and practice on the course 3-4 times in between phone calls and text messages. I played 6 holes the other day and then spent 2 1/2 hours sitting under the trees talking and texting.

My game has improved drastically, but I have not played complete rounds or turned in scorecards during this period. I played in a Shamble tournament last weekend (Lost by 1/2 a point) and played in the Men’s Scramble last night. We won the Scramble at -7 and used 3 of my drives, 7 approach shots and I made 6 of the birdie putts. However, still no scorecards to turn in and adjust my handicap.

I have also developed a baby fade fairway finding driver shot that averages 230 and close to 80% accuracy. I can hit a draw that goes 260 with recently 4 going 272-275 but maybe 20% of fairways. Last Friday morning I went and hit tee shots only off all the driver holes. I hit the two balls, the fade and the draw. I also put together some hybrids with 1/2 shorter shafts to stop over drawing them.

That has been why my handicap was 12-14. Note I didn’t say averages 260 or 270. It probably averages closer to 160 than 260 because they are either awesome or embarrassing and rarely in between.

Last Friday I shot an 84 trying to hit the draws. Today with just focusing on getting in the fairway was a 73.

So my scorecards:
IMG_0041.PNG
IMG_0042.PNG

My lone birdie was almost an ace.
IMG_0039.JPG

Landed about 3’ from the pin and hit the pin on the bounce and dropped on the lip and rolled about a foot. Of course if it missed the flag than I may have had a 20’er coming back.

I had just 29 putts and 6 of those were in the 10-15’ range, but I didn’t sink any of them. This could have been because these balls sound so clickey off the face but don’t go as far as they sound. Putts tend to just sorta wonder off close to the hole.

Course Rating and Slope from these tees is 69.4/116. And officially I am a 14.1. But I expect this to change once I post more scores.

Nice round! I suspect this score and KP is our clubhouse leader and will be tough to beat.

Thanks.

I could definitely tell a difference in the ball performance. I only short sided myself once and that caused the bogey on 2. Well, the poor drive that was 6” from OB and leaving myself 227 yards in the rough from the flag probably had more to do with it than the ball quality and pin location. I also was extremely lucky because the home owner didn’t have a fence and had recently mowed about a foot inside the white stakes. 6” right was OB. 6” left was 8” deep grass. I got my 4 wood on it and to within 30 yards but only had 10’ of green. Ended up with a 30’er for par. I was actually happy with just a bogey there.

Other than that I missed the green on the side where a ball that won’t check up didn’t hurt me. I also hit more loft and harder than usual to compensate on my approach shots.

I normally hit a 3/4 iron shot into the green. I tend hit it straighter and have better distance control.

That is awesome! What did you do practice wise to lead to such improvements? I mean going from a 14 handicap to shooting just over par is a monster jump.

Walked 9 holes with my 14yo today at Rochester Golf Course, it’s 4830 yards from the whites and 114.0/64.0. I ended up with a 47 and thankfully we both ended the round on a high note by both parring the 108 yard 9th hole.

My ammo of choice for the round was this amazing Michelob Ultra branded round white thing. I really hesitate to call it a golf ball. My god it was terrible.

IMG_6065.jpg

No idea who makes it but they should be ashamed of themselves. It lasted until the 7th hole, when I pitched it directly into a water hazard to the left of the green. I ended the round with this classic, the Top Flite XL Distance.

IMG_6067.jpg

My drive on 8 was actually really good with it - dead straight but it was a low bullet that ran right through the rough to the tree line on a dogleg right.

Shockingly I actually spun this sucker back with my PW on the last hole. I’m as shocked as you are. You can see the pitch mark on the left side of the pic. My son stuck his even closer, the little bugger.

IMG_6069.jpg

It was a hot and sweaty round, but I was out there with my son so it was a great time.

It just occurred to me... all Cobra Connect Challenge testers should be required to play and record one HRC round 👍@GolfSpy STUDque how about a new challenge?  Perhaps the best 9 hole score, long drive, and KP, using only irons tee to green. @JohnSmalls has the list of qualifying rocks.

@edingc, @B.Boston, @daviddvm, @GB13, and @Headhammer... think you've got what it takes?

Wasn't pretty.  Shot a 49 on the front with the Pinnacles.  I couldn't putt to save my life with them.  I even 4 putted from like 30' on one hole.

The good news is, I switched to my Srixon Z Star XV when I went to the back.  It was getting dark so I only got in 10, 16, 17, and 18, but I went par, par, bogey (3 putt from 60'), and birdie to be even for 4 holes on the back.  So, I know all isn't lost.

I'm sure the Google Maps photo was taken when the grass was dormant.  It's in very good shape for 7-8 months/year and, even when the grass is dormant, it's playable most of the other months.

Read their thread yesterday and thought I'd give it a go. Played 9 today.  I'm not a long hitter. Best drive was 233. But had a blast.  Used a Callaway Warbird. Shot a 39 at Gladwin Heights Golf Course.  Slope is 110 and rating is 68.7. My handicap is pretty much an 8.

I finally got a round in! I shot a 46 (+10)at Pine Lake in Anderson SC. Ball flight was extremely low. I usually clear the trees easily on the tee shot on number 7 but had trouble getting the ball a third of the way up the trees this round. Long drive for the day was 268 on number 9!

Wasn't pretty.  Shot a 49 on the front with the Pinnacles.  I couldn't putt to save my life with them.  I even 4 putted from like 30' on one hole.

The good news is, I switched to my Srixon Z Star XV when I went to the back.  It was getting dark so I only got in 10, 16, 17, and 18, but I went par, par, bogey (3 putt from 60'), and birdie to be even for 4 holes on the back.  So, I know all isn't lost.

Absolutely great drive, followed by a dreadful second shot, the story of my game.

Seriously great drive, I wonder how you all would feel if I intentionally aimed my drive to the street next to the course and let it go for a mile.

I played 27 holes today at Madison Meadows (Ennis, MT).  It was overcast, cooler, and a bit breezy - blustery making some holes a real challenge to get yardage right.  My HRC round was during the second nine, using a Nike MOJO.  I have never played this ball before and, after that round, never will again!  I'm going on record stating that the Nike MOJO is the biggest POS stone ever produced 🤮.  Seriously, they make a Pinnacle Gold feel good 😬.  It is by far the worst feeling ball I've ever played... not long, not straight, and BUTT UGLY... clearly a ball only its designer could love.

Here it is ready for launch... hell even the camera had a hard time focusing on it 😄.

This drive traveled 239 yards into the right rough - on what was a decent strike.  Hacked off, I teed up a ProV1 and it went 262 straight down Happy Path Highway. I hated hitting it so much that by hole 4 I was seriously trying to lose it... and couldn't.  Hole #9 is adjacent to the driving range... and, following the last putt, I added it to the range ball collection.  Shot a 43.

Good riddens!
