I relate everything to beer. There's 24 beers in a case. The box of balls had 8 sleeves in the box. There are 3 balls in a sleeve. Thus, 8 x 3 = 24. See, how I did that?My friend gave them to me. He only plays tour balls. He was won the case in a raffle at a scramble.If they are harder than Pinnacle, then I probably won't use them. As a high handicapper, there's nothing more frustrating than finally hitting a good approach shot to watch it fly off the green.
