I was listening the The Golf Zone podcast today. This new one with Bobby Clampett. And before the interview with Bobby, Tommy brings up the stat that Americans lose about 300,000,000 golf balls a year. That seems too high?

Another thing mentioned was now they know why there are no GPS golf balls. Obviously that would not be good for the golf ball industry.

300,000,000 Golf balls? Sounds like a normal round for me at Black Gold.

I know you're joking, but that sounded funny!

I'm not sure how many I lose but a lot, and when I'm on a roll, my ball seems to find every place to hide from me.

Feast or famine for me - I'll play 5-6 rounds with the same ball, then lose 5-6 balls in a round!

I found a report on Nation golf Foundation that says there was around 400 million rounds of golf played in the USA in 2019 so 300 millionw lost golf balls might seem right compared to that number.

Used to have thousands Vic. Made a large donation to Jr. golf before one of our moves. Actually purchased hundreds of balls this past Xmas...

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?

My boss got me started golfing...He used to say, there is no such thing as a "lost" ball, someone will eventually find it and do something with it...so, no lost ball penalties in our MGF group. How could I argue?

*missing, maybe, but not lost. ;-)
