One of the outdoor games that are largely dependent on quality of ball is the game of Golf. However accomplished a player might be and even when he or she is equipped with the best accessories, the game may not reach the desired levels without using quality golf balls. However the pertinent issue for the player is that golf balls usually come expensive and it may not be one of the best options using expensive new balls for practice or friendly games.
Opting for the Alternative
Thus many players look for an alternative and the basic focus is on finding cheap golf balls for the purpose. But the question is how to get such cheap balls? There are also other concerns like losing golf balls in water or in hazards while playing for the tee. Losing a number of golf balls could be financially painful but when someone uses alternatives like used golf balls the pain is reduced substantially.
Overlooking the Stigma
Many people consider that used materials have a stigma attached to them and they may not be as qualitative as the new ones. They also fear that used balls can affect adversely their gaming capabilities because of the lack of quality. Many players retrace their steps when it comes to using such materials. There are some who feel buying recycled golf balls beyond their dignity. But if one uses good sense; buying them could still be useful enough as they save money and there may not be any fun involved in playing practice and friendly games with new golf balls and losing them. Moreover these used balls are as good as new in many cases.
Procurement of Used Balls
One of the questions that might be nagging at the back of mind of the prospective buyer is how the used balls for playing the game of golf are procured. Usually the manufacturers retrieve them from ponds, lakes, and streams that means, these balls are harvested from water bodies and water is bad for golf balls. The question therefore is that how these used golf balls can be good for the gamer. Answer to the question is that while refurbishing these balls the manufacturers take due care of this aspect and secondly, they are not damaged the way one thinks in water because of the use of advanced cover materials as well as the solid core technologies.
Original Good Balls Sustain Moisture Invasion
Thus if the ball is original and qualitative then it won’t be damaged much when remain immerse in water for weeks together. When they are retrieved they could even be good for casual play even when not refurbished. But to make them regular gaming compatible the manufacturers use various techniques that make them as strong and resilient as new ones though with somewhat shorter life span that makes the only difference with the brand new balls.
SYDNEY, June 3 (Xinhua) -- Children are overweight because of homework and parents should ban it from their homes, according to a controversial child care expert.
Australian author Sharny Kieser urges parents to encourage their children to engage more in outside activities.
"There is no time to waste with new reports showing that the physical activity levels of Australian children are among the worst in the world. Instead of slaving over a computer or books in the few hours of daylight after school, our kids need to be out getting some exercise. Banning homework will produce healthier kids," she told the Courier Mail.
The warning is included in her new book Fit, Healthy, Happy Kids. It is the ninth book from the mother of four.
"Kids already spend six hours a day exercising their minds. More active kids are more intelligent kids. The body carries the mind," she said.
Christian Rowan Queensland, president of the Australian Medical Association, said television and computer use was a major factor in childhood obesity and inactivity.
