Unusual golf balls seen on the course

17 posts in this topic

I just wondered if anyone else has found any unusual golf balls on a golf course. Any ideas about this ball? Is it Fluff's person ball?

I once found a logo ball commemorating Tiger Woods' 2000 US Open win, and a ball that looked like it came off a mini-golf course, but never one like that. It's certainly different, but I'd imagine Fluff would use whatever kind of ball Jim Furyk does since I be the gets those free.

I found a Strata with a Harvard emblem on it. I stopped hitting it because it always went left. :)

Spongebob balls. I save them and offer them as a joke to players who have just lost their ball.

I actually have one too. I was going to post one but I searched and realized it wasn't that unusual.

Playing on vacation in FL a good while back.  My ball dribbles off the fairway and into the tall grass next to water.  Upon looking for my ball, I find an orange, unmarked ball that CLEARLY came from a putt-putt golf course!  Could have been hit by a kid playing with dad or g'pa.  You don't make a find like THAT very often.

Feeble riff on the false left-right paradigm, but amusing nonetheless!

I found one like this once. (It was actually mine, too!)

I keep some of them if they aren't something I would expect to find around here.

A couple with Eastlake Golf Club, one with an Enron logo, and one with a Blue Devil.

LOL if you see me playing one it would be unusual!

Every time I'm looking in the OB's, be it lost ball, (or just waiting for others to finish their shots and looking for balls), most times, the balls are Titleist Pro V1 or ProVXs.

As a result, nearly all the balls in my bag are Pro V1's

Must be a fancy course. I only find around 1 ProV1 to 30 junk balls when I'm either picking the range or searching the weeds at my course. I wish I had your luck! :-D

Same with the Dick Durbin US Senate one I found.

My most interesting golf ball finds are weird situations when I find my own lost balls!   My mark is difficult to miss.........I write this on BOTH sides of the ball.  LOL

Two situations come immediately to mind.

Case 1:

I paired up with a guy when I notice he is playing one of my lost balls.  That was hilarious!  I pointed out my mark, and he tried to give the ball back to me.  I think he took my comment the wrong way...LOL    I refused to take the ball, but pairing-up with a complete stranger using one of my lost balls was PRICELESS!!   IMO...this was quite funny!

Case 2:

I am playing from a greenside bunker and play my shot.  Parts of the bunkers at Stone Canyon have long native grass along some of the lips.  While raking the trap after playing my shot, I notice a ball imbedded up under the lip in the deep grass, so I decide to dig it out.......and it was a ball that I lost weeks or possibly months before!  Hahahaha.......

    • Which page is that rule on?
    • 9/26 - kettle bell & cable column work for core strength and weight shift work. Slow swings with 8i. Hope to play 9 holes this morning, time permitting.
    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
