I am just wondering if anyone has found a spray powder in Australia to record the ball strike on the club-face.

 

US teachers talk about Dr Scholes foot odour spray but the one they use called X-Odour does not seem to available in Oz. The ones that are available dry clear and probably won't do the job.

 

I currently use a dry erase marker and it is ok but a bit tedious.

 

I am interested to hear about something that works.

 

I have attached a screenshot of a good example.

 

Thanks in advance.

Have not checked it out lately but I think I found it expensive in any quantity.

 

I am doing a fair bit of practice working on impact and would need a lot of them.

 

I just want to see if I can discover a spray that would do it.

 

Thanks for the reply

Fair enough, if you search for golf impact spray there's an Australian website selling some but it's pricey

zinc cream on face is good, even better is a white board marker.

 

draw a large circle on the face of the club and your strike position on the face will be fairly obvious.

rub off after practice and re use club.

Thanks for that, I may give it a go although it may be messier than the dry erase marker.

Thanks mate. I have done some research and the description looked excellent until I realized that you are in the UK and that particular item shows a different composition here in Australia. The UK version includes talc in the mix but the Oz version does not. I will check it out anyway.

Thanks again.

 I have used a  broad tipped red white board marker applied to my practice balls ( rising sun look) .

 

It leaves a red mark on the driver face at impact. It also helps ID my practice balls when sharing the range with others.

 

I found that cheap dry shampoo cans from Chemist Warehouse works similarly to Dr.Scholls spray idea. The brand I use is Tressle or similar spelling.
