Do you tee up a brand new ball every round? - Page 2

post #19 of 25
Definitely one per round, but on difficult courses I might need a sleeve ( or more a4_sad.gif )

Fortunately, I purchase whatever is at Costco. This month it was the Callaway Hex Control. These balls are pretty good. I might buy another 8 dozen before they change it again.

However, I keep them in the box until I use them. Gets awkward to keep it in my pocket.

When I happen to pull it out of the bag.  When the ball pocket is getting a bit light, I open a sleeve, mark them, and dump it in the pocket.  What comes out, and when it comes out is just random.

Absolutely not.  A ball is good enough for more than 18 holes.  I currently have about 5 18s on the ball I am using and it was a found ball to begin with.

Ditto.  Today, I'll be using my Bridgestone 330-RXS, #3, on its fourth consecutive 9-hole round.  I'll play it until I either: lose it; or it gets a significant abrasion on it.

Right now my bag is full of nothing but Penta TP3, Penta TP5 and Pro V1s that I bought from a local guy who sells "one hit wonders" extremely cheap. Anything I pull out of my bag is new and at $7.00/dozen, I have no fear or concern about losing a ball due to an errant shot.

I still never change balls though, even if I purchase a dozen at MSRP. Changing balls results in your subconscious implementing a "failure" thought. Your "just in case" action of changing balls is already decreasing your odds of success, whether you realize it or have noticed it.

Yes. Always use a new ball. One round one ball. Then it is in the shag bag.

Since my ball of choice isn't overly expensive (Top Flite Gamer V2 2010 model) I use a new ball to start every round.  Yesterday I opened a new sleeve and when I lost two of them by the 9th hole I used an older one still in good condition. It stayed with me through 18.  I'll keep good condition balls in the bag until I scuff one or I just feel like changing up.
