Whichever Tour you are watching, whether it’s the LPGA, the PGA, Web.com, or Champions the first thing you see a golfer do when they reach the green is mark and clean their ball.  Cleaning the ball is fundamental for golf pros as they understand that a clean ball is critical to ensuring that the golf ball rolls true when they putt.  Many amateurs putt with a dirty ball. The importance of cleaning your golf ball could be the difference between Par and Bogey.  When a golf ball is hit from tee to green it picks up dirt and grass stains along the way.  When these particles accumulate in and around the dimples of the golf ball it changes the weight of the golf ball, alters the flight and spin, and most importantly the roll.

Cleaning the golf ball when on the green is a rule every golfer should take advantage of.  Putting is hard enough as it is, you should remove every variable to make the putt easier.  Cleaning the golf ball can help lead to accurate putts and ultimately lower scores……something every golfer strives towards.  So the next time you are standing over a birdie putt and you are looking down at a grass stained ball, think twice before you make that stroke.

 

USGA Rule 21 states: A ball on the putting green may be cleaned when lifted under Rule 16-1b.

GolfFest Las Vegas! We had a great time meeting all of you and spreading the importance of putting with a clean ball. Here is the winning ticket for the ProV1x drawing. Please email a picture of your half of the winning ticket to info@readyputt.com Congrats to ticket number: 323743



$50 for a dozen golf balls???? Here’s why. Check out this article about Nike Golf’s R&D. Watch the clip the anchor explains the precision and quality control these balls endure. “If the coating on the ball is off by a micron (less than …a width of hair) it alters a drive by yards.” If that’s the case just think about how a dirty ball rolls on the green?!?!? Clean your balls with ReadyPutt!

Thank a Volunteer!

February 13th, 2014

Attending a PGA Tour event is both fun and exciting. The opportunity to watch tour pros in person and the competitive spirit that they exemplify. In person it’s a much different experience than on TV. Additionally in person you will notice there are a number of unsung heroes that make the event a success. The volunteers.

We were fortunate to attend the AT&T Pro Am last weekend and not only enjoyed golf but experienced what it was like to be a volunteer. There are thousands of individuals that give up their own time to give us, the fan, the PGA Tour experience. Some volunteers work 14-16 hour days. We found that a lot of the volunteers knew little about golf and ranged in age from 9 years old to 69 years old. A true philanthropic effort. So if you are fortunate to attend a PGA event make sure you thank a volunteer for making that PGA event a successful and memorable tournament.
