@chisag, you've been holding out on us, Sam!

 

... I just went through my found on the course but still like new box and found these. Most are SOFT something or other and I donated about 100 balls to the Chicago District Golf Association for youth and urban programs but figured these few "gems" would be better served by the HRC.

I will most definitely not be the longest one this week as I am playing irons only, against the CCC competitors this week.

I might have to force myself to do this again.  Can't lose the long drive like that.
I put up a 79 from 6900+/73.7/126 on Sunday, but not with a hard rock.

Yessir! With all the interest the HRC garnered later on in July, it got extended to run through the end of August.

I had this box show up at my house today, chock full of granite goodness primed for a round in the Hard Rock Challenge.

I know which one I'll be playing to start the round off on Sunday. I don't think I've ever hit a Velocity, but I'm sure I'll be in for a treat. Or pain, probably pain. 

20200807_194923-01.jpeg.9e983076aeb6bd0682ccf46b8e628516.jpeg

It's pink, so it can't be too hard, right? 

Thanks again to @chisag for offering to send these to me, it made my day. The information on this site makes it wonderful to be part of, but it's the people that truly make it great.
