Callaway Golf Ball Deal - Costco

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I ran across this deal earlier this morning. I figured I would share it since this is a 2 dozen for $33.00 deal, which is pretty good considering the ball. The downfall is that the balls are yellow, so that's obviously a turn-off for those who prefer traditional white.

To my knowledge from those I know who have played the ball, this plays similar to the Tour i(S).

You rule.  That is my favorite ball.  4 piece with urethane cover.  I have compared it to several premium balls on a launch monitor and it is the same.  Around the green I like the feel and  I can make them spin as well as any ball.

Last year my wife bought the yellow by mistake and I was not feeling it.  After I played with them I realized it is a good thing.

Easier to find, when you get to the fairway or the green it is obvious which ball is yours.  It actually annoys me when someone else plays with a yellow ball.  For some reason it annoys some other golfers, never bad in competition.  I just ordered a 2 year supply.

Thanks for pointing them out.  In my mind I just bought a premium $40+ or $3.33 per ball  for $15 or $1.25 per ball.

I bought a boatload.

Same here. I never tried the ball, but the price was low enough to give it a shot. I'm not typically a fan of yellow, but I can look beyond that to try them out.

I think they're actually estimated to be delivered today as well.

Did you get a chance to play with them yet?

Unfortunately, I did not. I will need to wait until the coming weekend now since this past weekend was washed out, literally. The courses were sending out "Don't worry, we're open!" notices to local golfers, but a buddy of mine told me they were literally plugging every fairway and green, so it was a waste of time and money.

I do like the way it feels off of my putter though. I was putting on my mat that I have inside (cheap one with an auto-return). It definitely has a nice soft and responsive "feel", comparable to the NXT Tour off the putter for me at least. I'm sure I'll enjoy it and regret not buying more!

    • How about hitting a provisional? http://www.randa.org/Rules-of-Golf/MainRules/27-Ball-Lost-or-Out-of-Bounds-Provisional-Ball/SubRules/2-Provisional-Ball  
    • If the new rules are implemented, the 3-minute rule will hopefully speed up play and make people think about hitting a provisional ball more often.
    • It's the long game (full swing) by a mile and we've had this discussion on here soooooo many times, it's really not a debate.      
    • Golf has always been a shot of specialty!. Some excel over their infamous putting technique, and a couple would brag about their 190yard 7 iron off the tee!. Like any puzzle, our golf game is structured preferably in one of the fields. The question remains, which has more value to you? and why is it important!   Long Game Driver - "The Big Stick" is crucial on pacing up your game. Having a solid off the tee shot on a par 4/5 puts you in contention for a well-deserved birdie. Depending on how far you hit it, a solid drive is a clear advantage over your buddies. Using it 14 times (excluding par 3s) makes it underwhelming, yet it's the most prized possession in a golf bag.   Fairway Woods - A great sidekick for the mid-range distance hitter, and a club for playing it subtle off the tee. Someone who values course management will have a fairway wood at his/her disposal!. Irons - the term "ball striker" is given to amateurs with good iron control. To play around with a draw to a "low draw" is significant to have that 3ft putt for birdie. Short Game   Wedges - Our lifeline, the butter of our bread, and a shot caller that'll save your round!. mastering your wedge shots has its own league of specialties. Greenside bunker shots, the long chip & roll, Flop shot, and a scope of characteristics where imagination is key!.   Putter - Often overlooked, putting is the gateway for shooting lower scores. This makes up 40% of our golf game and we barely give it much attention. If you wanna rake in lower scores, then "putt" some practice into it!. So Which is it? Finding your balance, and giving love for every department is the key!. Knowing your weakness is crucial to understand your core strengths!. The learning cycle of the game differentiates as you get better at it. In my opinion, a weekend golfer would prioritize their long game than of an experienced player polishing up their short game.   To read the full article - Click here
    • I voted "no". Reason being there is/are sanctioned events and tours (e.g. Michigan Hickory Tour) and some are even shown on Sky Sports. They even have the Trilby Tour. This is a real amateur tour where the main stipulation is that you have to wear a trilby hat (i kid you not). Like many have said, the tech is soooooo different that it is more likely to be detrimental to their regular game that anything other than 9 holes or so for charity or exhibition wouldnt be worth it for them. That being said, some older pro's have switched largely to hickory golf with a lot of success. Sandy Lyle for instance won the hickory World Golf Open in 2014 and 2016. Still plays modern gear but in interviews says he enjoys the old stuff more. Difference is that Sandy isn't competing at the very top of the sport these days.
