I usually play first in the morning but I could see you doing this if it was really slow on a shorter par 3. I hit the foam golf balls in my yard but they usually hit a tree so really don’t know how far they go. This is the 2nd time I put it to the test on Willingers Golf Club Hole 3. Usually plays around 130 off the blue tees.

First attempt:


5 iron

8 iron


2 putt

Total: 6 strokes

Second Attempt:


5 iron

52 degree wedge (should have hit the PW)

Chip (Almost holed it)

2 putts

Total: 6 strokes

I might have to this on hole 5 a par 4 next time and try and get under 15 strokes.
