What Ball type and color do you prefer so you can see it easier when using a Driver ? - Page 3

post #37 of 63
1-Titleist DT SoLo or Bridgestone 330RX

I am 55 and don't have much trouble following the ball, except one hole that I usually play right in to the setting sun. I see my drive on that hole about 2 times out of 5. Some of my playing buddies might say the reason I can still follow the white ball is because I don't hit it far enough to lose it, but what do they know?

I prefer white, but have nothing against colored balls and have used them. Back when they first came out, I was hooked on orange for a while.

I think that orange is the easiest to see, track during flight, and find in the rough as they just contrast against green so well. Red is tough to find and do not stick out so I will not be buying anymore of those.

If the color of the golf ball affects your game then you have bigger problems.

Yawn everyone of these threads has at least one don't mess with the game guy! I thought the OP asked about what color you can see easiest when hitting driver. The yellow ball works best for my old eyes cos I hit it so far, the whit ball just disappears at about 270m, still climbing!

I see the Srixon Z Star Tour Yellow best off the driver, but because it has a fair amount of green in it too, I felt it was tougher to find in the rough than white.  I plan to research which brands/models come in orange and give them a try to see if they are easier to find in the rough.  I'm thinking with all the leaves on the ground, white might be the best.

I just got some cheap e6 orange for winter balls, apparently they were ltd edition, and have an almost shimmering sparkley kind of finish, brilliant for winter sky's and a bit of fog as I discovered last week!

Unfortunately, these were recently discontinued - after hours of internet searching, I am sitting on a lifetime supply ... if anyone would like any, I found one supplier left in the USA that still has them - PM me

If you think the color off a golfball will help your game is worse i think.

I mean for decades the golfball was white, some aspects off the game should stay the same.

but this is just my opinion.

If you think a yellow or orange ball is easier to find, i suggest you see the local pro, a white ball on the fairway is easiest to find, even in the rough.

you haven't seen the orange ball above then - it is exponentially EASIER to see in flight and when it lands way out there as compared to a white ball.     Lighten up already - some people don't have eagle eyes & its far easier to see colored balls designed to be more visible - especially in flight.

Hmmm my handicap is lower than yours and I hit more fairways than most and I don't think I need to consult a pro to find out what color golf ball I have to play to feel like I look the part. A white golf ball is not the easiest to find especially anyone who has played in the desert and knows that the glare the sun reflects off the sand makes it really hard to pick up a white golf ball. Orange golf balls are easier to track in flight in my opinion and I don't think that I am in the minority on this. It in no way helps my game but it surely doesn't hurt it. It's just a golf ball and the color of the ball doesn't mean someone is a hacker or a good player.

Orange with a cloud background? Or white with a cloud background? I've only just started using orange and it's much easier in winter and low light!

I played for the first time in 3wk yesterday(it's cool and hunting season).   It was cool enough that I played 3 balls just to see how they played in colder temps.  The pro v1x didn't seem too affected by it to my surprise but I also grabbed sleeve of orange e6 that I have no idea where they came from.  I've never played an orange ball before but wow can you see them!  I can see them in the cloudy sky and on the lush green grass.  Sticks out like a huge zit in the sand too.  I was playing a links style course so there were no leaves in the rough.  I might play my other course for fun to see how easy the contrast the leaves.  Still not sure I can play an orange ball for real score though.....it's just a mental thing.   I like white.

Those are actually really cool looking, I have a buddy that plays those and they do have a really unique looking finish. The cover almost looks transparent?...

Still wouldn't play them though :)

I'm sorry but "spellcheck" please... also "cos" is not a word. The word that you have been so desperately searching for is "cause" which originates from the word "because".

OMG, you are that don't mess with the game guy. Do you patrol the clubhouse in a gold buttoned blazer and cravat, terrorizing junior members for being inappropriately attired? 

 

I was not searching for anything, I was writing a tongue in cheek post, complete with colourful text, plenty pronounce because as cos.

Cause isn't even a word in the sense that you are suggesting.  There is no "short for because."

 

Although, I do take issue with Mozgolf's post because everybody knows its spelled "cuz."  If you're going to make up a word based on slang speak, the least you could do is spell it phonetically.  Come on, man! :-P:beer:

 

Oh, and I play white balls for now.  I've always thought about trying yellow, simply because I would stress less over people walking off with it when I hit it into the wrong fairway, but haven't brought myself to do it yet.

Nope, wrong. Cause does not come from the word because, it's the other way around. The English "by cause" and the French "par cause" became the word because.

I use white balls.
