alternatives to impact tape

24 posts in this topic

I was watching school of golf today and he said use foot spray instead of impact tape. Has anyone ever done this? Is it easy to get off? Does it work well?

what about blue painters tape?  If you put it on the club loosely the impact will leave a pretty visable ball print on the tape.

I use green masking tape, but the ball imprint only shows on anything more than a half swing. So for chipping or short pitch shots, it doesn't leave a visible mark on there. But it still works for me.

I tried athlete's foot spray and tapes. I like using oil pastels. Cheaper, more portable, a little better in wet conditions. A little messy though.

I feel like athletes foot spray would be good because I wouldn't have to worry about it coming off easily. I would only do this on my driver because there is less turf interaction. It will last longer on a driver I would think.

I have a square foot section of a rubber mat flooring used at professional gyms. Using sidewalk chalk on the mat itself shows me exactly where the club bottoms out.

I use a dry erase marker , just have to wipe it off with a towel

Do you put it on the ball or the club face?

I use impact stickers from longshotgolf.  The good thing about them is that I can peel them off the club face after practice and onto a piece of paper to take home and refer to later, with notes I add to explain what I was trying at the time.  Like this:

You can get the impact stickers at: http://www.longshotgolf.com/productdetailsheet.aspx?CategoryID=5&ProductID;=3380

I got my first stickers at golfsmith in an introductory package.

I often use a colored (blue, red, green) sharpie and color my practice golf balls with a circle. The sharpie will transfer to your club. It is really easy to clean too so long as you use something like Dawn dish soap and a rag, or a towel (I use a micro-fiber towel). Probably not the "easiest" approach, but works well and there's no barrier between the club-face and ball by doing so.

Edit: I know of some old-timers at my local course who used to, and still do, use food coloring on their balls for the same effect. Easier clean up and similar to Easter egg painting lol.

Wow. That does work great! Is it as dramatic on the irons as well? Definitely gonna buy a can for the range. Thanks.

My Titleist 910D2 has a black face.  I don't even need impact tape because range balls leave a little mark on the face.  I just wipe the face before every shot.

Hi, ever heard of or used Mark It from http://www.markit-golf.com/ or On mark http://www.dwquailgolf.com/training/onmark2.html ?  Wondering how they would do

They work fine but not environmentally friendly, smell, expensive, don't last a long time, harder to wipe off the club, etc... I tried the yellow stuff gave up on it after two cans. Dry Erase Marker or Oil Pastel.

It does work very well on all clubs. I usually play my round with my driver coated if I am struggling so I can make adjustments on the fly.... wipes off easy with a damp towel and smells great!

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
