With all this talk of poor communication from retailers I thought I'd give a shout out for Golf Sidekick, the YouTube channel based in Malaysia.

I ordered a pitch mark repair tool from them at the end of March and had two confirmation emails straight away.

Unfortunately with various lockdown issues they've not been able to ship but in the meantime I've had 5 emails from Matt the site host updating me on the current state of play, the last to say that they'd sourced a new shipper and my parcel should be on it's way shortly.

I'm impressed with the very friendly and caring service.
Love that guy. Seems like a great bloke that you'd love to have a round and a pint with.

You don't like the Extra Soft ones? £12.99 a dozen? Or the Wilson DX2 £11.99 a dozen?
I‘ve not tried the soft ones, DX2 are ok, but I prefer the BXS. everyone has different opinions on balls, personally I play with many, happy to play pickups and often do, but ultimately I always end up gravitating to these, TP5 or ProV1. I like the feel of them.

i realised the other day, I may have become a bit of a ball snob, was in Costco and picked up the two dozen pack of their balls. Put them back though, before I spend on any ball, I‘d like to try one at least, would hate to buy two dozen of a ball I found I didn’t like, or maybe it was just the logo 🤔. May go back and get them if the Bridgestone don’t turn up in time though.

yes there are cheaper balls out there, but I know I like these, and at the price it’s a bargain, almost as good as the staff discount my lad gets at AG.

Excellent. Where have you joined and did they offer any sort of deal (just being nosey to see if clubs feel the need to try and attract members after lockdown or simply prospective members will simply come to them)
Around here, from the limited enquires I made, new member numbers are up so no need to put deals out.
Have joined Heythrop Park. Was impressed with the greens on Saturday, & played again Sunday.

I found a Costco ,Kirkland ball and in the 9 holes I used it , I was well impressed , could be the original model , which has better reviews , but if you can still, get the one I tried , I would buy them in a heartbeat , I usually use , prov1 or chrome soft .
