Too many balls



  • St JimmySt Jimmy Members Posts: 449 ✭✭✭✭
    My home course doesn't have a lot of water, but the wild grass that's thigh high and just ten feet from the fairway is a golf ball vacuum.

    Add a few "target golf" holes and it's a recipe for disaster.

    I averaged 1.75 balls lost a round last year.

    Deposited about 7 dozen into the wasteland.

    I'll buy 5 dozen tops (Vice for one) if I can get a deal on a ball I like playing. I still have, should say found in my little ex-ClubHo warehouse:

    4 dz TM TP Red LDP

    4 dz Hex Tour iZ

    2 dz Hex Tour iS

    2 dz Hex Chrome +

    So even most of those I won't play anymore, proves buying tons of balls when you don't lose a sleeve or more a round doesn't pay off. I'll give some of these to friends who don't play as often, or when kids play with me, and always good for scramble tourneys

    I have 6 dozen AVX's...shocked i only have one brand of ball, but love the AVX!

    Just picked up 7 dozen from the bay - just need to lose the rest of these pro vs!

    Also I tend to shred a ball over 18 holes - rarely does one make it through a round without scuffing up from wedges (or cart paths).

    I have 7 or 8 dozen TP5, ProV1(x), Kirkland, vice pro, AVX etc. The problem is that my home course is a tourist destination for many and is pretty pricey so premium balls are laying everywhere. I can find a dozen ProV1s every round with a few minutes of work. I end up playing a ball I found that looks brand new and my stash goes unused. I want to start using the AVX exclusively but need to burn through my other balls first.

    Same here although my course is 3 stars at best BUT I have dozens of ProVs thanks to the locals.

    Next to me right now I have 12-15 dozen balls of various balls. I was testing a lot of balls last year so bought a lot especially on good deals, I also have extra balls because my friends often forget and I either give them a dozen of something cheap or charge them like $20CAD for a dozen.

    I'm also gonna pick up 6 dozen Vice Pro+ because the deal cannot be beat now and hey balls last forever.

    For what I go through in a round can be 1 or 2 balls can't be 6-9 or more depends on what I'm doing. Fun rounds with friends or practice rounds I'm taking more risky/dumber shots cause it's the time to do it and just having fun.

    I'm done stockpiling. It's fun to play with different balls. New ones every year, and hard to buy new when I've got dozens.
