What golf balls do you have stashed away, probably never to see a putting green again? I don't buy balls all that often, but am willing to try a new ball from time to time. Most of what I buy tend to be the balls that spin almost as much as the Tour Balls, but cost less. My ball of choice at the moment is the Srixon Z-Star.

Over about 10 years I have accumulated, and now have stacked in the garage about a dozen or so Maxfli Tour Fire, probably a dozen Maxfli Revolution Solid, three sleeves of Srixon AD-333 (I think that is what they are called) and a dozen Slazenger Rock Distance balls I won as some door prize at a work tournament. Two sleeves of Pro V1's also may never see the light of day. My 6 year old is going golf crazy (he gets his first set of clubs for his 6th birthday on Sept 4, so he'll use some of them I suppose....

You know you have some.... What balls are you just storing?

In sleeves:
4x NXT Extreme (Original)
2x Pro V1x (Logo'ed with Atlantic City CC)
1x Pro V1x (2010)
1x Pro V1 (Logo'ed with Full Tilt Poker)
1x Pro V1 (2010)
1x Nike One Tour
1x Nike One Tour D
3x Srixon Z Star Tour Yellow

The Extremes were the first box of balls that I ever purchased but never got around to using them. I've been meaning to take a sleeve out to the course but the course has been playing so hard as of late until recently. Also, have a bunch of like new premium golf balls that have been sitting in a bucket for quite a long time.

I have an old Titleist Tour 100 Balata that I putt around with every once in a while, but I don't stockpile balls. I have the second half of a double dozen of Noodles still in the box because I don't want to shove them all in my bag.

I have a bunch of Wilson Smartcores that I bought on special, before I had ever discovered a ball that I liked. Also a few sleeves of Beta Ti's that I got for christmas, a few sleeves of Top Flite XL's. Funny thing about the smartcores, you toss a golf buddy a sleeve of brand new balls, and suddenly they are buying you beers from the cart girl...bonus!

    • Day 75.  More wall drill, plus I set up to a ball with my 6-iron (on a mat, but I didn't downswing and hit the ball at any point).  I set up, took the backswing, incorporating what I was getting out of the wall drill.  The thing I really noticed when I got to the top is that my club isn't as far over-extended (seriously, some of those face-on videos looked like I was trying to be John Daly). 
    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
