Hi

Found a golf ball and I don't know what it says.

Can anybody tell me ?

    If it's Japanese it says "Pleasure" according to Google.



    If it's Chinese is says "Fast Joint Music"



    I'm betting it's Japanese.

    Thanks for the direction for me to look into.



    If it's Kanji the word "pleasure" from the symbols I found for that word don't match up.



    It could be Chinese like jvincent stated.

    Is that a true translation ?

    There are members here for fun have tried to help out. Which by all means I like their humor.

    Well,I'm a Chinese, and the character are Chinese, no Japanese.

    As for translation, I can tell the meaning of each character, 快:fast 联:link 乐:happy 界:scope.

    But I cannot tell the true meaning of all them together, may be its a name of a organization.

    Thanks for clearing up the translation of each symbol.

    As shown previously these characters are stamped on the ball from the factory. A factory logo ?

    Precisely, and the Japanese use Chinese characters which is what the article explains. Good to have you here gxjade. I have worked for a Japanese company for 20 years, so I would assume from what you are saying that bunching the meanings of the characters together would basically mean the use of this ball in a round would be fast and give happy results. Being an illegal ball seems to be unspoken I guess as it's assumed no one is supposed to know that unless they already recognize it.

    Given this was a lost ball and the website is down maybe they should have come out with a ball called "Foo-King-Straight".
  • Pro SlicerPro Slicer Advanced Members Posts: 103
    Yes somebody was using a "hot ball" and couldn't control it, thus in the weeds it went.
