HOW DO I GET STARTED IF I AM A BEGINNING GOLFER?
You want to begin by simply grooving your swing every day. Since the almost Golf ball performs like a golf ball, but allows you the freedom to practice anywhere, we suggest you begin by using the almostGolf ball to hit balls for 15-30 minutes a day, when you can’t get to the range our golf course. Begin by hitting short shots in your backyard or neighborhood playing field. Take a bucket and put it 25 paces away from your hitting mat. With a pitching wedge, practice hitting the ball close to your target. Once you’ve been able to get a majority of the balls close to the target, place your target another 10-15 paces further and hit to that. Progress like this until you are hitting a full pitching wedge with confidence and accuracy. (About 35-50 yards) Once you’ve mastered this, you can move to other clubs. It’s important to note that that if you are a beginner, us the almostGolf ball in conjunction with lesson and range time. There is no replacement for a good teacher.

WILL THE ALMOSTGOLF BALL HELP ME IF I AM A LOW HANDICAP GOLFER?

Definitely! Just as basketball players shoot hundreds of free throws and 3 pointers every day, so can you hit hundreds of shots every day and groove an effortless swing. Best of all, you can do this safely and conveniently when you can’t get to the range. Furthermore, in the winter, the Point3 is the only ball to use when the course or range is closed. And Dave Pelz has proven that the scoring game takes place within 100 yards. This means you can finally work on your short game shots every day and that will improve your accuracy, creativity around the greens, ball striking and confidence when facing a tough up-and-down.

HOW DOES THE ALMOSTGOLF BALL COMPARE WITH WIFFLE BALLS, FOAM PRACTICE GOLF BALLS AND OTHER HOLLOW PRACTICE GOLF BALLS?

The almostGOLF ball out performs all foam practice golf balls, wiffle golf balls and hollow practice golf balls hands down. There really is no comparison to other practice golf balls on the market. For years golf has suffered from not having an off-course safe practice golf ball that actually worked. We’ve had super cheap blown plastic and wiffle type balls that don’t fly, break or dent on impact and do not give any kind of ball striking feedback. The almostGolf ball is a quantum leap in technology. It has CO2 internal pressure inside the ball. That gives it pop off the club face, while keeping it light enough to be safe. Golf balls accomplish this bounce by compressing 'super ball' rubber. The almostGOLF ball gives accurate feedback, just like a golf ball, but it’s neighborhood and park friendly. And that is not only a vast improvement on other practice balls, it is a whole new fun sporting experience. Now you can turn any open space into your own neighborhood golf driving range or ‘Frisbee Golf course’.

CAN I TEACH KIDS AND JUNIORS GOLF WITH THE ALMOSTGOLF BALL?

JUNIOR GOLF INSTRUCTION IS NOW AS EASY AS WALKING OUT YOUR BACK DOOR! The almost Golf Ball is the first junior golf ball that fits a junior’s size, weight and strength. This means they can get it off the ground easier. As a result, they experience success faster. Best of all, you no longer need to drive them to a facility for daily practice. They can hit shots around the yard, in a park or around a school playing field when no one is around. Simply put, the almostGolf ball is the best practice ball for juniors ever! Welcome to a new generation in junior golf development.

WHERE CAN I USE THE THE ALMOSTGOLF BALL?

You can use the Point3 in almost any open space. For your short game, all you need is 20-30 yards. This could be a backyard or over your house and into your pool. For longer irons the Point3 goes no further than 100 yards with a driver, so you can grab your 5-7 and 9 irons with a bucket of Point3 balls and practice on a playing field, open park area or even vacant parking lot or field. Welcome to the freedom to practice anytime, anywhere and improve fast. Can I create my own games with the almostGolf ball? Since it flies a playing field friendly distance and its off-course safe, you can create numerous games with the Point3. You can create your own ‘Frisbee golf course’ where you make hole out of sign posts, fire hydrants and trees. You can play ‘catch’ with your kids where you or they stand a distance away and catch the ball. The best part is that since this really is a whole new sport, you can create any rules and any course designs you would like.

WILL THE ALMOSTGOLF BALL HELP ME LOWER MY GOLF SCORES?

Definitely! The almostGolf ball allows you to practice every shot in your bag, every day, and that will lower your scores. Most golfers have neither the time or money to get to a range or course every day. Now you can supplement your range time with full swing practice in any backyard or playing field. And a player who can groove his swing with 10 buckets of balls a week is generally better than a player who can only hit one.

WHAT MAKES THE ALMOSTGOLF TECHNOLOGY UNIQUE?

Our unilateral cross linked foam construction, combined with patented internal pressure technology makes the almostGolf ball revolutionary. The almostGolf ball is far more than a simple plastic practice ball or wiffle-type ball. It is the ultimate backyard practice ball. It is a unilaterally designed, one piece ball that we internally pressurize to ½ of a traditional golf ball. Combine this with it being only ¼ the weight of a traditional golf ball and you have a lively ball that doesn’t compromise on performance. This means, when you strike it, the bubbles compress like a real golf ball, then bounce back, thus giving the ball real action off the club face. As a result, it is the only off-course safe ball used by the legendary Dave Pelz Short Game Schools.

HOW LONG WILL THE ALMOSTGOLF BALL LAST?

Since the almostGolf ball is constructed with a patented cross link foaming technology, it’s virtually indestructible. You can hit it thousands of times and you will never break, tear or damage the ball. You can’t even knock the dimples off it over time. Of course the ball begins to get dirty over time, but that will not effect its flight or performance. It’s truly a marvel of modern thermo-plastic technology.

DOES THE ALMOSTGOLF BALL CONFORM TO USGA REGULATIONS?

As far as we know, there are no regulations for off-course safe practice golf balls. The Point3 is designed to allow you to practice in places that have traditionally been off limits to highly dangerous golf balls. Just like baseball, that has numerous softballs, now golf has a ball that is safe to use around the yard, on a playing field or park and can help you hit straighter, more accurate shots in just 15 minutes a day of practice.

CAN I USE THE ALMOSTGOLF BALL ON A GOLF COURSE?

Yes, but they are ¼ the weight of a traditional golf ball, so they only go about 100 yards max. They can definitely turn your local par 3 course into a legitimate par 5 course. And if you really want to have fun, they are a lot of fun to use around a schoolyard, just like playing Frisbee Golf. But to be honest, the golf course is where the golf ball is king. For the rest of the world, there is almostGolf.
