marketing 3 pce black coloured golf ball (USPG approved) ....would it appeal to golfers?

13 posts in this topic

There is an Australian company discreetly surveying the marketing of the black golf ball. I have not played with one, but have a yellow one. Colour has not bothered me, i think,, it has been my swing never consistent. It will be interesting, if it actually appears on the market. Does anyone know if Nike actuallymarketed black golf balls?, seen them in pictures.

Unless you are playing in the snow it would very hard to pick up sight wise, i have played with a dark red ball and it was nearly invisible, like red flags, very hard to pick up in the distance.

There's a reason that golf balls are bright colors.  Imagine trying to find that sucker in the tall grass, shade, dirt, etc....

Thank you no.

I have enough trouble finding a white golf ball every now and then.....black/gray/green would not work for me either

Why would anyone play a black golf ball?  Might as well play a green one if you are going to go with a dark color!  If they ever do go on sale somewhere I doubt they will sell many of them.

The Boo Weekley inspired camo balls were a big hit (not). Even on a good shot they were one hit wonders. You have to love the "Truck Nuts" packaging.

I'm still wondering about the thread title where it says "USPG Approved".     USPG?    Why would a 300 year old Anglican missionary organization (the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel) be approving golf balls???     Is it because you wouldn't have a prayer finding one of these in the rough?

Not even a snowball's chance in Hell.

Dude, I cannot even find my yellow golf balls.  How the heck am I going to find black ones?  imo, that's a terrible idea.

Clearly your problem is you're playing yellow balls while there are a lot of yellow leaves on the ground.  And in that instance a black ball would stand out!!!
