    Are there that many golfers, yet alone bad golfers in SD?


    Just a bunch of them that do not move very far from their carts. If you were to watch a lot of the swings, that would answer the bad golfer part. Most of the locals just play, the range is foreign territory. Rarely does anyone walk the course. The first couple of years I was just awe struck by the amount I would find. Now even on a bad year I will have at least 15-16 bags of the 120 mixed balls. Last year I didn't sell any ProV's so the amount is a 2 season accumilation. I am a happy camper!! If nothing else it pays for my membership every year. Makes the wife happy so all is well.

    - 9 dozen lethal practice

    - 3 dozen project a practice

    - 2 dozen rocketballz urethane

    - 2 dozen tour preferred x

    - 7 dozen 20xi-x 2013 edition

    - 2 dozen ndx heat

    - 1 dozen Wilson duo

    - and some random sleeves of Callaway hx bite and Nike pd soft

    Just ordered 6 dozen Hex Blacks for $21.98 per dozen and have maybe a dozen Q / Z Stars left from last year. Oh and a friend who finds golf balls all the time has about 4 dozen mint Callaways he is giving me. So I check in at approximately 11 dozen.

    Four dozen Tour Preferred, all number 5s (my favorite!)

    Three dozen ProV1



    One dozen of the ProVs have the TPC Sawgrass logo. I worked for the Tour for a few years and every Christmas in the pro shop they'd have a member/employee sale where you'd do all your shopping and then at checkout, you'd draw an ornament. Some were good for 30 percent off your order (which was the employee discount, so basically a wash), some 50 percent and a couple were 100 percent off. I had some family gifts in hand and at the last minute threw in a dozen ProVs. Of course at Sawgrass they're $60/doz retail, but the worst I was going to get them for was $42. But I drew a 50 percent ornament so they were $30. Of course I jokingly asked the checkout lady if I could grab more and she said no.

    Geez I thought keeping 5-6 dozen B330-s sitting around was bad....



    I also have a 5 gallon bucket of "practice balls" which are mostly old worn balls out of my bag or stuff I find. I keep an old range bag filled up with them for practice chipping/putting.

    I've been trying a lot of golf balls last year to find a favorite. The Zstar, U4 and U6 have bencome my main gamers. U6 mainly when its windy. If I'm in a funk. I play the cheapy balls. Vacation destination courses: TPX U6 and Zstar. Twilight or overcast Yellow Zstar. Prov1 if the greens are fast.

    Starting to hoard the Chrome +, around 6 dozen. That would last about a year and a half. Will begin to drastically increase inventory if I don't like the Chrome S.
