Where do you guys purchase your balls?

I have tried many links associated with MGS and even outsode of MGS but with shipping and taxes, a dozen balls are trending above $60.

Callaway is out of CSX balls as well. 

any tips?

golfballs.com because I usually get a coupon and they ship pretty fast for me anyway.

I usually stock up during sales, most recently during Srixon's Buy 2 Get 3 sale. Beyond that, if I'm in a pinch, there's almost always a Golf Galaxy $10 coupon floating around.

This was my order from Golfballs.com per the recommendation here.....lol.....

suffice it to say, this calls into question all thier practices of selling brand new balls.....what are they doing over there?

When questioned, they had no idea how this could happen......

Ive seen that at my local Target. People swap the inner sleeves with higher priced balls. 
Pretty sure karma will recover those balls from the scumbags.

 

EDIT: Not implying Golfballs.com did this to you... just sharing a deja vu experience.

Tiger is the GOAT, change my mind.

Wow.  I also have used Golfballs.com a LOT, and always had excellent results.  This is a very very strange occurrence, to say the least.  (Maybe they just wanted you to play a better ball...)  Notice my avatar. 🤣

I've bought "logo overrun" balls from them numerous times.  My experience is that they usually show in a brown "Golfballs.com" dozen sized box, and often not in individual sleeves.  This is a really weird occurrence, to be sure.

Plot twist: they actually ARE Callys, but the logo overrun was someone being funny and putting Bridgestone B's on his Callys...

Oncore and Snell make balls that are as good or better than the name brand, and have 2 for 1 sales so you can stock

up for far less.   

Three, Albatross'

Three Holes in One

Plus, when I was 5 the first ball I ever hit on a golf course went in the hole, so I have that going for me.

My bag is a mish mash of Srixon drivers, cobra and adams fairways, TA1 irons and Hopkins wedges, plus a Cure putter.

I buy mine from lost golf balls . com. I get the 5-star mint condition balls. They look brand new or maybe lost after a couple hits. It's usually 45%-50% the cost of brand new for basically a new ball played after 2-holes. So my 5-star mint Srixon Z-Star's are about $24/dozen when I buy 4-dozen. I've only been slightly dissaponted when I've bought the 4-star balls. The condition is quite a bit lower and sometimes they throw in Z-Star XV's or even Q-Star Tours.

Srixon has run buy 1 get 1 on their website in fall/winter, and they just had a buy 2 get 3 promotion on all balls. $60/dz? Don't think so...Pro V1 are $48 retail everywhere.
