Golfers
« on: May 10, 2020, 04:36:05 PM »
Was enjoying the sun yesterday wandering over the closed local golf course and came across quite a few of these things. Are they something you golfers use to polish your balls or something else entirely?

Can you scrub your putter in it?

I am not a golfer but if a ball has a bit of mud stuck to it it will normally roll in a circle and may encounter excessive wind resistance in flight, therefore it is important to go round with clean balls.

And always examine them between holes.

I wondered what they were doing...  ;D

I'm still not certain That's what it is for though as there was nowhere obvious to put your balls and I didn't want to experiment.

I decided to do what I probably should have done in the first place and Google came up with this. It seems golfers must have a lot of trouble with their balls as there are umpteen options but this seems to be the one I came across...

Hi Klondike it washes the golf ball and I have used one many times. The word polish never sprung to mind.


Just had a session with golf practice net now having a cup of coffee before starting more golf playing theory and indoor exercise drills. Doing me some good 60 days in home lock down and I have lost 3 pounds in weight

It's probably the springs on your scales weakening Mike - I have seen similar effects many times.
