Marking your golf ball.........

Recommended Posts

BuckeyeNut    174

Do you mark your golf ball?  If so, how do you mark it?

I've marked mine in various subtle ways over the years.  It wasn't until this past year that my ball marking took a drastic turn for the dramatic for many various reasons. Mostly in fun...

I write it on both sides...........big letters.

There's no way my ball can be mistakenly hit by another golfer...LOL    I've had club members who know my mark return my lost balls to me.   They return it with a big laugh as they toss it to me saying...... "I found one of your sh!t balls" .   Funny stuff.  Nobody wants to keep them....

How do you mark?

I don't mark them.  I don't see the point.  If I'm playing with people, it's not that hard to know which ball is yours

the point of marking them is so you know which is yours from ANY ball, really.  I don't have to physically pick my ball up and check to see if its the right number and everything like a lot of people end up doing.

I draw faces on my golf balls. Sometimes a simple two dots and curved line for eyes and a mouth. Sometimes I'll make him a pirate with an eye patch or Harry potter with glasses and a lightning bolt scar. The best part is when I walk up to my ball and it's smiling back at me.

I use a smiley face.  Keeps me laughing and takes my mind off the previous shot.  If I am feeling lazy a straight line under the number does the trick.

I beg to differ.....most people remember the brand, but forget which number half the time.  Even if they remember the brand and number......and hit it......they find a different model.

I put a V on mine on both sides.  If it's a callaway i just put it right outside the V that's there.

I write my initials in Arabic. . كام Pretty easy to identify, even without knowing the make and number.

Geeezus Buckeye, how the heck to hit the ball like that, with all the writing? LOL

When I play in Tournaments, we have to mark our balls, and each have to identify our balls in our group on the first tee.

I like very minimal markings on mine. Just a black dot next to the number.

Back when covers were made of balata, I used to mark mine with a big ole' iron gash.

Just getting the red ink all over my club faces would be enough to annoy me...

i "sign" my ball with my initials on both sides w/ a red sharpie.  its not as big as sh!t ball up there, but its somewhat close.   it works out great because i can see the ball is mine from 10+ yards away.  i see people pick up balls to identify them all the time, and i HATE that.  i've even had a-holes pick up my ball, with the big read scribble on it, to check who's it is!   argh!  call it one of my pet peeves.

though as someone mentioned above, i do have a couple red marks on my driver, but its minor.

Buckeye....kind of an obnoxious ball mark don't you think.  Not very funny but to each his own.

I don't usually mark my ball because I play a Top Flit Gamer V2 most of the time and I rarely see them on the course.  Most wouldn't be caught dead using a Top Flite ball while those that do will usually go with one of the XL models. If I do mark, it's usually a simple dot near the T on Top Flite. Looks like I do half of what Triston does for marking.

I take the attitude that I really don't own the ball.  I'm just borrowing it until I donate it to the golfing community in hopes that someone else will get more use out of it than I did, so I keep the marks modest.

The gamer V2 is 10x the ball the shitty xl series is.

I mark my ititials on both sides. Small letters.

LOL...yea....that definitely happens.   I turn the ink away on the tee, but 2nd shots definitely get ink.  At worst....you can easily see where club-met-ball!!!   It wipes away with a wet towel....the sharpie doesn't stain the clubface.
