marketing 3 pce black coloured golf ball (USPG approved) ....would it appeal to golfers?

13 posts in this topic

There is an Australian company discreetly surveying the marketing of the black golf ball. I have not played with one, but have a yellow one. Colour has not bothered me, i think,, it has been my swing never consistent. It will be interesting, if it actually appears on the market. Does anyone know if Nike actuallymarketed black golf balls?, seen them in pictures.

Unless you are playing in the snow it would very hard to pick up sight wise, i have played with a dark red ball and it was nearly invisible, like red flags, very hard to pick up in the distance.

There's a reason that golf balls are bright colors.  Imagine trying to find that sucker in the tall grass, shade, dirt, etc....

Thank you no.

I have enough trouble finding a white golf ball every now and then.....black/gray/green would not work for me either

Why would anyone play a black golf ball?  Might as well play a green one if you are going to go with a dark color!  If they ever do go on sale somewhere I doubt they will sell many of them.

The Boo Weekley inspired camo balls were a big hit (not). Even on a good shot they were one hit wonders. You have to love the "Truck Nuts" packaging.

I'm still wondering about the thread title where it says "USPG Approved".     USPG?    Why would a 300 year old Anglican missionary organization (the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel) be approving golf balls???     Is it because you wouldn't have a prayer finding one of these in the rough?

Not even a snowball's chance in Hell.

Dude, I cannot even find my yellow golf balls.  How the heck am I going to find black ones?  imo, that's a terrible idea.

Clearly your problem is you're playing yellow balls while there are a lot of yellow leaves on the ground.  And in that instance a black ball would stand out!!!

    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway.

    • Lake Mead. It's down 150' +/-, and still losing about 5' every year. 
    • Well the head of the pros looks quite steady in the horizontal movement. I just want to emphasize that swing in a barrel and steady head can harm your swing especially if your swing is already good. 
    • Sounds similar, I have never heard any one with this swing thought just hope it's not a one time fluke.It makes sense though if your belly button follows your club head all the way back and through with arms connected to body you can't get ahead or behind with your swing , if  that make sense , don't have to think of anything else it just happens naturally perfect rythem  and a nice draw I also visualize the swing path and try to keep club head on that path
