Marking Your ball- How and why?


Recommended Posts

I have a 3 year old daughter. What do you think? On top of the alignment Iines I put on for lining my driver. My daughter puts all kinds of marking and writing on the balls. I kinda like it now. One perk is that it usually leaves an ink mark on the club face so I know where I hit the ball.

One blue dot and two pink dots for my son and two daughters. Also unique and easy to identify.

Used to just grab whatever sharpie was in my bag, then I went to a red 44 (my number) over the ball #. Lately I've gone to just a green dot over the ball #

I put a really wide alignment stripe over where it says "pro V1". Helps me align my putts better(as compared to the normal sharpie width line). Carry two balls. One red stripe one black. Just grab one and start playing if it's acting up it goes in left pocket and the other one comes out. Use two colors purely for provisional purposes.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I'd always just made a red dot above the right side of the ball's logo.


Until my kids bought me a tin-cup stencil do-hickey thing. They both go to NC State so I said, "cool, is that a wolf's paw print?"


"No," my daughter said. "We tried to find something wolf-like but couldn't find one. It's a dog's paw, or maybe a bear... or something. You'll still use it, right?"


Lol... yup, works for me. Various solid colors usually, multi is only when I'm really bored. 😉20170616_180258.jpg

Started marking my ball with a black dot over the name. Just did it that way maybe 15 years ago because it was different than everyone else's.
