I put a blue circle around the number, all the guys I golf with know my mark so if they find one that I lost  they give it back. We were on a golf trip ,the group ahead of us was with us. I found 3 prov1xs, every one was from the group ahead of us. He had his company logo on them so I gave them back, so it pays to mark your ball.

Just a simple marking. I find a bright green sharpie and hilite (mark over) the entire brand name of the ball.  I find it very easy to see from a distance.

The number of guys that do nothing about marking their ball amazes me.

Different ways actually. I just bought a dozen AVX balls yesterday and marked each of them with a purple sharpie by coloring three dots on each side of the ball right under the number. That should be my last markings for a while though; I bought four-dozen Pro V1s with my name on them. Whenever Titleist gets around to shipping them.

Sadly, very few I play with mark their balls... or play with the same ball each round. I use a single dot under the number and a line off both end of the model but also don't use the line for putting like the OP stated. I like the line for the visibility when identifying my ball from a distance. I rotate between three color Sharpies so I usually have the same number Pro v1 with a red, green, and blue dot and line in my bag, in play, and as a Provisional, if needed.

Easy. I use and buy golfdotz. Check out their website. They sell great decals to stick on your golf balls. I use the Swedish flag or the Bald Eagle.

All Taylor Made clubs except I got Srixon 585 irons. Buy new TM driver every year.

I'm an engineer that plays golf.  I decided long ago to mark my balls with a blue Pi, some think it's a double TT, but it's the symbol for Pi.  Two vertical lines with a horizonal line on top.  My goal is to shoot 3.14 on each hole🤪🤔.  That would be a nifty score!

I mark two balls when play starts, One I put an orange dot beside the number and a line on each side of the writing on the side of the ball.  The second ball I mark with 2 orange dots and the lines on the side of the ball.

Retired educator who loves this game.  It is challenging and a game of integrity.

I use a yellow ball, and use a Check-n-Go in red Sharpie, to get the "equator line" on the ball. Takes a little time to do a box, but in my mind, I feel it helps my game. I use it on the tee, and on the green for alignment. I don't get anal about the alignment, and change it 3-4 times, especially on the green. I just line it up in the basic direction, and play away. Easily identifiable from a short distance on the fairway, as I show my playing partners my ball on the first tee. Does it help my game? Maybe! At least, again "in my mind", I have done something for my game that takes away any question or doubt about equipment I am using, as I am a high capper. Confidence in my equipment is paramount to me, so I can enjoy my game.
