Regarding logos on the balls, some of the favorites among corporate buyers (ProV, NXT, and some lower end balls) have a higher percentage with logos. I play Bridgestone B330-RX, which I guess aren't as popular for logos. In the last five dozen or so, I only had two with logos.
I like that concept. Think I will try it. Similarly in terms of incentive, if I see I've got a straight forward pitch from just off the green I don't even take my putter. If I can't hit a simple pitch inside the leather, I have to putt with a bladed wedge as my punishment. Usually works out fine.
