My Member Review

I received the birdicorn tool and marker today while on my way to play a round of golf so decided to put it to the test. 

The Birdicorn tool appeared well made of anodized aluminum. It was well finished on all areas and edges were all uniformly smooth. 

The Birdicorn marker was also well made. The image etched into the marker was clean and well defined. The paint fill was well done also. 

Birdicorn marker was very effective at repairing ball marks. The portion of bottle opener helped with the ball mark repair as well. The Birdicorn seemed to be faster than my usual ball mark repair tool at repairing marks. It was also a rainy day and I used the Birdicorn to rest clubs on, which it also excelled in. The putting line drawing assist was also sufficient. Bottle opener was tested and worked as expected. My initial  concern was that the magnets in the tool to hold the marker might not be sufficient to keep the ball marker attached to the tool but after forcefully testing the tool, the marker did hold on to the tool. 

The Birdicorn is a very nice and well made tool and excels in what it was designed to do. It has a price listed on the website as $25 but on sale for $20. As well made as this tool is, I would find it a little pricey for ball mark repair tool, personally.  Now if you need all the features available in one tool, the price may not be an issue and you can't go wrong with the Birdicorn tool.

    • I don’t think anything they do will make a meaningful impact on pace of play except keeping players on the clock and enforcing it. Without books they may just spend more time reading the green since they don’t have anything to help them. I just don’t see where players would get the incentive to play faster if they think spending their allot time will help them score better. Many players play fast and enjoy keeping a good pace, but with 125 players out there, there will always be many that take their time. The Masters has banned books, so some players already has some experience with it. Do they play faster there? The greens at Augusta are difficult and it’s a special tournament, so maybe they spend their time even without books. Perhaps not the best tournament to compare with. I came across this article: https://www.golfchannel.com/news/2021-us-open-rory-mcilroy-thinks-green-reading-books-should-be-outlawed-greater-good-game There seems to be a combination of reasons behind the idea, rather than one. I’d maybe think the for-the-greater-good thoughts like Rory’s are more common than pace of play, but also a combination. I like the thoughts about the greater good of the game, and wouldn’t object to the books being outlawed. It puts more focus on reading greens and trusting what you see rather than consult a book. As Erik said, if they don’t putt better today than before the books, is there a reason to keep them?
    • I have 45°, 50° and 56°. Simple. As a short knocker I need the extra slots for the top of my bag.
    • Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great. 
    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now.
