I have hundreds of found golf balls that I've collected. I'm too superstitious to play with them on the course so I just donate them to the range on occasion

That might be a very conservative number. Here is statement from the NGF. "The 1.5 percent increase means that NGF estimates 440 million rounds were played last year. The NGF says that number is actually skewed a little because weather in the country was not great. In fact, it was the second-wettest year on record in the United States, meaning that plenty of potential rounds were rained out. This was for 2019 so less than one ball per person per round.

QUOTED  The balls with the orange sqiggle on it are mine.

Back in the day at the family biz we had our logo printed on the early pro v balls. A few in the woods were returned to my brother at his club by other members. They were mine not his in there.

Nice perk to have free expendables and the afternoon off in the spring after busy winters. I wrote them off as advertising expense on the company books.

Swing for the fences!

Oh, thank you for sharing a great podcast! By the way, I think that's a great idea! I mean the logo on the golf ball. I'm actually new to golf and I've already lost a lot of balls, that's why I don't buy expensive balls so I don't get upset about it. Besides, I came about professional advice.. I want to buy a new golf club, which brand can you recommend to me? I think it doesn't make sense to buy an expensive golf club for a beginner, so I'm looking for budget options. While searching, I found All golf reviews blog and I want to know your opinion about a putting mat for home to practice golf without leaving a house. What do you think about it? Thank you in advance.
