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.

    • Day 36 (01 Aug 21) - More work on swing tempo focusing on getting a consistent 3:1 tempo.  
    • The above is the first I've heard of booster shots.  Hopefully I find a place to get one that doesn't involve over a half hour's drive to a city named Corona like my first two shots.
    • and, quoting the above: The line of best fit for the data of GIR vs score is 95 - 2 * GIR.  That's probably where @reidsou's number came from.   Note that, even if we treat it as the standard goal (I agree with you, as you'll see in a moment), an average 11-GIR round probably has one or two birdies thrown in, and I'd bet that most of those missed greens in such a round (again, for an average 11-GIR round) are probably very much near-GIR.  That having been said, there are some of us, such as the original poster on this thread and I, whose long game is such that more than seven GIR isn't unheard of (which that formula would "predict," if we use it to predict at least, a round in the 70s) but who still score in the 80s.  I even recently had a round with 9 GIR and a score of 90 -- which is why 95 - 2 *GIR isn't meant to predict any individual's score, but does still highlight the importance of GIR and ball striking. Which brings me to my next point, which is also @Shorty's next point:  yeah, 50% chipping and putting is not the way to go, certainly not long term.  Maybe with the goal of getting those traits to about an average 20-handicapper's level (without sacrificing approach shot strength), and then using the 15/20 time productively in future weeks to improve on them.  The nice thing about chipping and putting is that there is some low hanging fruit as far as getting competent goes, especially if one is building off the sort of short game shots that come from missing fewer than half of one's GIRs.
    • The people I noticed who got vaxxed early, some of it was they knew an inside person, other than knowing exactly which sites to hit and when. Like people who were fully vaxxed by February/March.  
    • I flew over Cabot Cliffs and Southport and the rendering of these courses was really poor. Guessing you have to find the courses where specific work was done to make them look realistic.
