This thread is making me want to mark my ball with funny things.  Next time I play I think I'll try marking my ball with... another ball.

Why is it always us lefties that have the funniest ideas???

I like a bigger marker for longer putts because I can read my putt from the other side of the hole without having to put my ball down. That is a help when someone else is away but in the interest of speeding up play I try to get a read on my putt while they do the same. 

Take an AimPoint class. ;-)

Man I would love to, but there are none in my neck of the woods.

Get the DVD 

I'm not super sold on that. Anyway, not the topic here, so I'll bow out.

I use TST ball markers when I play, almost always.

I've done both.   "For me", the DVD is only a refresher for the course.    I wouldn't recommend just buying the DVD.   The class was well worth the $$ and time.

I think you misunderstood.  Get the DVD and use it as a marker.

Not sure how anyone ever lets somebody else's mark knock their ball off line. I don't care if someone marks with a dime, if its near my line I am having them move it. 

On another note, I have never fully understood the use of those little plastic ball markers with the peg on the bottom you buy in the pro shop. What's wrong with a coin? We have those little plastic ones in our pro shop for $0.25 each and people buy them all the time. Every time someone gives me a dollar for 4 of those things I always want to ask them if they realize I could just give them 4 quarters instead and then after their round they could even use them again to buy something. :doh:

Then again, some courses give them away for free! I have a pocket full of them. Those are the ones I actually like the best. They lie flush with the surface of the green, so if one of those is in my line, I'll let it lay. I'll actually use it as a target to judge my line.

I use a Hong Kong two dollar coin because I'm old and it is big enough and shiny enough for me to find when it's my turn to putt. :-P

    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
    • Getting an old set and having them adjusted is not going to yield you any better results financially than getting a new set. If you're looking for the most bang for the buck, look at www.thegolfworks.com and get a set of their maltby irons built to your spec and flex.  They're only about $299 for the whole set.   The woods are just as amazing but you could find a used OEM driver for cheaper.   
    • Not surprised, they're great looking and performing clubs.
