My method for marking golf balls is very dictinctive......my mark is hard to miss because it's written with huge red letters on both sides of the ball. Sooner or later, I was destined to pair-up with a complete stranger playing one of my lost balls!!
My distinctive mark is "SHIT BALL" HEHE...this is an old pic and an old model ball, but my mark is unchanged..
It happened to me yesterday!!! I was playing with a complete stranger using one of my balls........hahahahahaahahaha
When I made the discovery, I started laughing out loud and proclaimed to my partner that he was playing one of my lost balls. I think he took it the wrong way because he got a bit defensive..LOL He didn't fully understand the humor of the moment.... so I walked him to my bag and unzipped the "ball-pocket" while still laughing..... (all the balls in this pocket are clearly marked the very same way) ....he tried to give the ball back, but I refused. I did my best to put him at ease, but I think he was a bit uncomfortable. I thought it was hilarious!!!! I've lost so many d%mn balls.......it's about d%mn time I find somebody else using one of them!!
I asked him where he found it, and I don't remember ever losing a ball in that spot. It was a weird place.... I think somebody else found the ball first...and re-lost it!!...only to be found again!! How funny is that!!
For me....this was a very funny moment!!! :)
