I'm also using the Callaway in yellow right now. The Hex Chrome + in tour yellow.

I used to HATE the idea of a yellow ball, but it's actually growing on me.

I know, me too ,  when I go to really hammer the ball   and its white , I usually am not able to find it right after I hit it in the air  !   grrrrr

I am playing yellow Callaway Hex Pro from Costco.  It makes things alot easier as long as everyone does not play them.

I also like walking up to the green and knowing which ball is mine without looking.

Golf balls are white.  Tennis balls are yellow, or white if played on grass.   Pool table felt is green.

Tennis balls used to be white. Period. They changed to yellow. Why? Easier to see.

 

Balata balls used to be off-white at best, especially after they sat in the bag for a month. Not sure what color they were before balata, but they weren't the stark raving white we have now.

Not all shades of yellow in golf balls are the same.

 

The shade of yellow in Titleist NXT Tour S is amazing. It's a light shade that seems to glow when you see your ball lying on the fairway.

 

However, I play Srixon Q Star in white because the yellow option is a darker yellow with a touch of green that for me makes it harder to see. If they made the Q Star in a lighter shade of yellow I would use it.

totally - so many different shades in the yellow balls today.        Agree the Titleist DT Solo or NXT are the brightest, but the Noodle Distance yellow at half the price has the same microscopic metalflake in the cover which makes them so glowy & visible

Tennis balls used to be white when tennis was primarily played on grass. Balata golf balls were white. Period.

Yellow Srixon Q-star. Although it is not the most visible ball playing into the sun in the morning.

Playing the hex Chrome in yellow to finish off the dozen. Decent enough ball, but I miss my tour iZ's or whatever they were from a few years ago. But I DO like the yellow, it is easier to pickup in the air, especially with the sunglasses that I have (or had, I lost them last weekend...arrrgghhh).

I play a lot in early morning when grass is covered in dew.  In the sunshine, the grass gets a silvery appearance making white golf balls much harder to see..for me anyway.  Srixon's yellow is really bright.

Srixon TriSpeed Tours in white, yellow golf balls just seem so..........toylike, it negates the grave importance of everything going on there. I mean, I wear a special glove and special shoes for this, these aren't toys!
