... Perfect! Early this summer I played with a guy using a Velocity and he asked me how I hit chips so fast but they hop and stop near the pin. He said he keeps waiting for my ball to go screaming off the other side and they never do. I did the same chip using his Velocity and while it didn't scream off the other side, it certainly did not hop and stop but ended up a good 15 feet past the hole.

Good thing to know, not that my ball stops In a dime, but I also don't want to play ping-pong over the green

100% that's what makes the Velocity a Hard Rock!

We all have to pick our poison... and this is a "hard rock" contest after all.  Thus far, for me, the Velocity has been the least offensive and feels like butter compared to the Nike MoJo.

It takes a special level of skill to fit your game to the ball 😉.

I got another round in today, "ROCK"ing a Nitro playing again at Chatata Valley in Cleveland TN. I really don't have anything to contribute as far as the leaderboard, unless there's an award for worst round. My game has completely left and is in hiding somewhere. Had a +20 56 for nine holes, and was +10 through 3. I guess I can look on the bright side and that means I was also +10 over the last 6. 

Nearly killed myself on 5, attempted to hit a low runner under some branches that hit the tree and came back at me. Saw my life pass before my eyes.

I'm not sure which post response button is most appropriate 😬.  Do you think it has anything to do with the recent addition of the vintage blades? In any case, you've still got lots of time to get things square and post the winning card.

It might have something to do with it, the addition of the blades has caused me to change out the irons in my regular bag and I might be going through an adjustment period. I have gone back to the F8's from the Atomics. I want to capture data for the Wilson's and have to take off the Arccos sensors on the Atomics to use them and don't want to be constantly switching them. Might just have to ditch that idea.

Plus, I feel as if I'm playing more golf swing than just playing golf.

So if I am calculating this right, with my normal 18 every week, if I keep on playing with the velocity and maybe some variations of the hard rocks, I will have 11, 9 holes rounds on the contest, 3 already in, and 8 to go, I might not win it, but I got a great chance to get most rounds in.

I am hitting the gym and aiming for the car path, I want to climb the distance charts, I picked up 20 yards of distance in average this weekend, 235, the longest of the tee with the driver was 241.

I am coming to my 2012-2013 form where I averaged 280 of the tee, and bombed some well past 320.

Welcome to the dog days of August!  Congrats guys, you've made it past the halfway point and onto the final stretch.  It looks like we have a trend developing among the rock divisions and new age rocks are king.

Long drive is heating up with some bombs with @tchat07 holding a narrow lead over @seeking70's.  For the first time ever we have a challenge between @xOldBenKenobiX and @fixyurdivot for closest to the pin.  We have a race on our hands in the endurance division to see who will become the king glutton for punishment with @HardcoreLooper @fixyurdivot @sirchunksalot   and @xOldBenKenobiX all with 3 rounds a piece.  When it comes to the overall lead, @RoverRick is running away with the top prize.  Who is going to catch him down the stretch?

I found my Hard Rock Challenge ball yesterday......it said "Hammer Distance" on the side. It is a Top Flight.....so I am guessing that it will be acceptable.

 

If so, I'll play it next Sunday.

Well Taylor meadows have a par 5, 12th, that I can reach in two, if I get both shots just right, as well as one reachable par four from the tee, the 10, and two par 3s, the 11th and 17th.

With the rest of my game, I have a chance to catch him up, if I eagle 10, and 12, HIO on 11 and 17, play bogey golf for the other 5 holes, and you have me with a very comfortable 3 under for the back 9. Very easy 🤣, improbably, but not impossible.

Time to call all of the favors I am owed by the friends and family in Brazil who are involved in black magic.

While I did not measure my KP, I know it was inside 26".  But hey, I'm the yutz who forgot to measure, so @xOldBenKenobiXis the guy to beat. And watch out @tchat07, the hole following this par 3 (where the cart is) often has a tailwind and I've had a couple of drives this year that have rolled out to right at the 300 mark. Posting a net round better than @RoverRickis going to be tough nut to crack... but ya never know...an ace here, an eagle there 🙂.

I found my Hard Rock Challenge ball yesterday......it said "Hammer Distance" on the side. It is a Top Flight.....so I am guessing that it will be acceptable.

 

If so, I'll play it next Sunday.

Hey @fozcycle- glad you're joining in on the game!  I've never heard of a TopFlite Hammer Distance, but it sounds like one that should stop like a dime on the greens 😆.
