2 - Callaway

I'm also using the Callaway in yellow right now. The Hex Chrome + in tour yellow. I used to HATE the idea of a yellow ball, but it's actually growing on me.

I am playing yellow Callaway Hex Pro from Costco.  It makes things alot easier as long as everyone does not play them.

I also like walking up to the green and knowing which ball is mine without looking.

Golf balls are white.  Tennis balls are yellow, or white if played on grass.   Pool table felt is green.

Don't mess with the nature of things......

Tennis balls used to be white. Period. They changed to yellow. Why? Easier to see.

Balata balls used to be off-white at best, especially after they sat in the bag for a month. Not sure what color they were before balata, but they weren't the stark raving white we have now.

Embrace the change!

Not all shades of yellow in golf balls are the same.

The shade of yellow in Titleist NXT Tour S is amazing. It's a light shade that seems to glow when you see your ball lying on the fairway.

However, I play Srixon Q Star in white because the yellow option is a darker yellow with a touch of green that for me makes it harder to see. If they made the Q Star in a lighter shade of yellow I would use it.

totally - so many different shades in the yellow balls today.        Agree the Titleist DT Solo or NXT are the brightest, but the Noodle Distance yellow at half the price has the same microscopic metalflake in the cover which makes them so glowy & visible

Yellow Srixon Q-star. Although it is not the most visible ball playing into the sun in the morning.

Playing the hex Chrome in yellow to finish off the dozen. Decent enough ball, but I miss my tour iZ's or whatever they were from a few years ago. But I DO like the yellow, it is easier to pickup in the air, especially with the sunglasses that I have (or had, I lost them last weekend...arrrgghhh).

I play a lot in early morning when grass is covered in dew.  In the sunshine, the grass gets a silvery appearance making white golf balls much harder to see..for me anyway.  Srixon's yellow is really bright.

Srixon TriSpeed Tours in white, yellow golf balls just seem so..........toylike, it negates the grave importance of everything going on there. I mean, I wear a special glove and special shoes for this, these aren't toys!

    • Not an individual tournament but with a partner(s), sure. Even if it's another low handicapper we can compete if we play well but most likely won't win. I agree with you what you're saying. Most of the club tournaments I play in have a gross division so it's not a big deal. One tournament where I've seen low handicappers have an advantage is a format where teams are divided into flights based on combined handicap. If you win that flight you play against the winners of the other flights in a horserace where strokes are greatly reduced. Most of the horse races I've seen or been a part of of are won by teams from the first two flights, the lower handicap flights.
    • Checked if my shoulders were too flat in a mirror. Apparently not as bad as I thought. I'd like to be more conscious of it before tomorrow's lesson. Going to do a bunch of slow movements through the evening and tomorrow morning then progressively speed up and see if everything still looks reasonable with a full speed swing. . .
    • I've never actually met a golfer who swings differently when under pressure, that is, if he can swing to his handicap at all? Golf starts with a good swing, without that you've got no game.   Yes, but the player is dialing things in at a range. On the course everything is much harder because you only hit any club once per 10 to 15 minutes or something like that.   There's no mental aspect when you have a chance to hit ball after ball successively from the shortest club to the longest one. On the range you're dialed in. That's why many people hit well on the range and not so well on the course.   If you do this with a proper swing, then I'd imagine yes. You'd have a good swing. That good swing in turn will give you more confidence than any sort of motivational speech.   I've never been able to will the ball to go where I want it to, and don't know anyone who can do that without the physical training required to develop a decent swing.
    • This.  Over the years we've heard so much about golf and sports being mental but where are the great tips and instruction on the mental side of the game?  I've read some books on the subject but so far not by anyone who sounded like they actually played golf.  Here's one mental thing that I've done to help my game, imo:   While getting into my address position I look long at my target, glance at the ball to get feet and ball position aligned.  One more good look at the target and when I look back to the ball I begin my swing almost immediately.  This keeps tension from creeping into my muscles by staying too long at address thinking about too many things.  It also seems to help me stay more alert during the swing, rather than getting all tense and just hitting a start/panic button.  To me, this is part of the mental game and is one way the mind can make a huge difference in shot result.
