    Default Best alternative to impact tape?

    Any homemade alternatives to impact tape?? I've heard of covering the face with an office highlighter pen, but never tried it...don't know if that would even work.........

    I'm specifically speaking of driver, but any club i suppose.

    EDIT: I think I meant a dry-erase-marker, not a highlighter.

    Masking tape may work.

    If your hitting off a tee suntan lotion works. I use the stick type.

    my fried used to draw a wid circle on all his practice balls, and position the ball so the circle would be hit by the clubface. dont lose any feel, or loss of velocity or spin like using tape would do.

    using a sharpie left a nice blue mark on the face where he'd just hit it
    see the ballflight
    see the bad shots
    see what in the swing causes the bad shots/ball flight
    replace causes for bad shots with upgraded positions
    make sure new upgrades do not cause more bad shots

    this teaching lark is easy!

    For putting, Ben Crenshaw sprinkles baby powder on the back of the ball. I'm not sure if this would work for full shots or not.

    Lipstick. It shows where on the face you hit the ball and where on the ball you hit the face. I use it on my putter all the time. Makes the putter look better too.

    I've used plumber's tape. Actually it's teflon tape. Comes in a roll like adhesive tape, but you buy it at Lowe's or your local hardware. Just pull off a strip and place it on the club face. It will take several strips as it is only about 1/2 inch wide. It will stick for awhile and then comes off easily. I leaves a great ball mark where it contact the ball. I've used on my putter and my driver. Cheap and easy. Just be careful to keep it straight and not let it curl when you apply.

    Thats funny. Hadn't thought about the putter much, but I bet that works well. Also, someone mentioned baby powder on the balls (that sounds funny too).....but actually I remember trying that on full shots many years ago and it was a mess that didn't really work re: impact...
