4 years ago, I was running low on tee...(longer ones). I walked into Golf house and bought a bag of Black tees.


NBzzz......during game, I had such difficulty finding them after teeing off coz of the color and start losing them almost 5-6 per game....way more than I lose balls.

Towards later, I decided to use liquid paper to paint it white. Thinking about it..if I patent that, maybe the guys making those white clubs will have to pay me royalty......

For me, it was my Cleveland Launcher Hybrid 3H.

Oh, don't get me wrong... I love it. BUT, I feel that I need it all the time. Even if I don't use it, it must be in the bag. If not, my game will tank (well, it will tank a lot more than it usually tanks). It's like a security blanket.

Sigh.

Same happen to me.

I bought red tees (the long ones). Zero Friction Tees somemore.

I bought because the color red on the tee looks nice. But everytime i use it to tee off, I cannot find my tees even when they were beside my foot. My mates even commented why they can see it while i cant.... What a Face

Golf Balls - As a green horn, not aware of the golf ball contribution to the game. Played a few round with those cheapo XYZ brand golf ball. As we are all beginner, i'm alway puzzled why my ball distance is alway way way short compare to my peer. It been sort of demoralising.

Only when I start to use those "better" ball, realise that ball did play a part in the game of golf. Although I dun hit fantastic long short, but manage to keep in par with my friends. Sub conciously I comfort myself I'm not tat bad a player compare the rest after all. In the meantime i'm still learning, play to my limit and enjoying the wonderfull game of golf.

Noodle ice balls

played the pink ball, got laughed at by the flight behind and then proceed to sliced the ball. Never used it again.
played the green ball, could not find the ball even in the fairway
played the tangerine ball, also difficult to find when lots of dry leaves
played the yellow ball, got my first birdie with it.

The whole box, only 3 out of 12 balls is good (the yellow one). The pinks ones are good for the ladies or those that dare to play it. Its really hot pink.

I bought Noodle ice too because it was cheap, $30 for 3 dozens. Yes, only pink and yellow is easier to find. But what made it a bad thing to buy was that it went shorter than NXT Tour, and hitting it felt like hitting rocks.

Bought a cleaning tool for my irons many years ago. It has a brush made of steel fiber. Whenver i reach into my golf bag pocket, i will get pricked by this thing. Threw it away eventually.
