    Why don't you give that a try and post a video of the results.

    Granite it pretty dense. (So is Glark!) If he struck a piece of granite with enough force to compress it further... make it more dense... it would probably just turn to a mixture of rock granules and powder. Glark will just take a photo of sand from his cat's litter box and post that as the after-effect of his "girlie swing".:D

    I've actually caused a few black holes compressing granite too much...it's not pretty. Gotta get the government involved...

    I've been playing D2+ feel balls this year and really like them based on this thread. I found a brand new Noodle Long & Soft the other day and played it. I was crushing it with the driver. Might try some of those after I'm out of my five boxes of D2's.

    I bought some Callaway Superhot 55 Golf balls from Costco. Get decent reviews online. Will report back how they do.

    I still enjoy playing with other people's balls. (Woops! That could be read a little different that it is meant!!;)) We still find oodles of balls on the course. I'm back playing ProV's... all found balls. Have egg cartons with pristine NXT Tour, Velocity, and ProV Titleists. Now up to three 5-gallon buckets of playable balls. Have a fairly large basket of pristine Nike, Bridgestone, etc. that I can go to if the Titleists ever run out. Still prefer a ball that will react well around the greens. Our small greens simply do not tolerate chipping with a rock-hard ball.

    Almost every manufacturer has a good low-compression ball designed for slower swing speeds. No matter what the name on the ball, you still have to put a club on the back of it for it to work.

    Jeez, Limp. Stay out of the weeds before you get snake bit or eaten by an alligator.

    No gators in Kansas, but he could get snake bit or abducted by coyotes..............but returned to his beloved Mrs. Limp shortly thereafter. ;);)

    Literally LOL'd! Well played.

    Coyotes prefer tender meat, not beef jerky.

    Snakes are our friends. They eat bugs/mosquitos. Biggest problem in our "weeds" is ticks and poison ivy. The urban coyotes are becoming a dangerous menace in larger metro areas. Out here, all they do is steal a cat or puppy now and then. Playing on our course, we've seen bobcats, coyotes, possums, raccoons, skunks, deer, geese, turkey, muskrats, fox, and probably been watched by other animals we haven't seen.
