Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

I voted White Golf Balls Only. 

I figure if I play a colored golf ball, my mind would get use to it, but currently I do struggle to pick out the colored golf ball on the course when looking for it. 

After reading the article, it might be worth trying.

You either need to give up the white balls or white belt.

I’m pretty sure you’d prefer I wear the belt over the beltless result!  😀

I like the yellow ball in the winter, or a cloudy day. As I get older, the eyes are not getting any better, so might switch to yellow full time.

I generally prefer playing a white ball, but in the Spring when the mountains are snow capped it can be tough to track a white ball on certain holes.  So sometimes I will play with a yellow ball.

White, also use orange on par 5s or when the hole is out of sight and yes, a light pink. The light pink were my Mom’s.  I use these in her honor.

Our driving range sits between #1 fairway and #18 fairway.  Currently we have white range balls.  They changed from yellow balls about a month ago.  On #1 and #18 I am not using yellow balls.  If range balls go back to yellow, I will switch to white.  

Generally, whatever color ball I tee off with on #1 is what I play for the entire round, when playing at home.  In my tournament leagues, I normally play the e12 ball is sort of a mustard color.  No one else in the league plays that color ball.  

Didn't vote as there was no "mixed" option and the "whatever" option seem to imply you don't care...and I do.

    • Oh man, I would LOVE for one of those guys to say that under oath. But at the end of the day, not one of those guys in that lawsuit said they were leaving for money.  They were leaving for a "better schedule", to "spend more time with their families", or "to grow the game of golf."  They were also aware that LIV was an international organization, the LIV website literally calls themself an "International Golf Series."  They were aware of the format at the time they joined, they were aware of the schedule.  They were also made very aware of what the penalty would be from the PGA Tour if they joined.  They had all of that information in advance, and made a choice.  Now to come back and say that? Understand you're playing devils advocate, but that argument coming from these professionals should have no legs to stand on in a legal setting.
    • Playing devils advocate here because I can't comprehend what its like to be a millionaire and want to be a zillionaire - but I think the point is there is no competition in LIV just money. Thus still no meaningful choice to them. LIV can pay but can't provide competition, PGA Tour has the competition but doesn't pay that well. Most PGA Tour players are not making a ton of money, especially compared to other US sports.
    • Day 650: Played 18 this morning at North Kingstown. Driver was dreadful. I’m at a loss as to what is different on the course.
    • Historically, I've had difficultly getting the ball off the deck with woods. I've new Callaway Mavrik MAX 3, 5, and 7-woods.  Haven't swung the 3w, yet, nor have I yet played the other two, but I was able to get the ball off the deck much more easily, in range practice, with the 5 and 7-woods than I had with my previous woods. You might also consider hybrids.  I couldn't hit my 4i worth a darn. Replaced it with a Mavrik 4h on a "I wonder...?" impulse and I'm able to hit that well.  Again: At least in range practice. Whether any of those improvements will translate to play remains a question I hope to answer this season. My main concern with replacing anything under my 5i with woods or hybrids would be play out of the rough--from where I far too often find myself playing 
    • All you can ask for is to have at least a bit of optimism in August. I've even heard Bears fans who have some belief (for some reason). Let's try to keep Mr. Swift healthy all year this time.
