SHOW OFF! - How Do You Mark Your Balls?


Recommended Posts

I go with a red dot and yellow dot to the right of the number on the ball (both sides). I also highlight the putting aid line with red to help with alignment.

It is not how you mark your golf ball but how you mark your TITLEIST. Since no one else mentioned it i though I would say it. I mark mine exactly like my dad did 5 or 6 dots around the number in both sides. He preferred #1s I prefer 6 7 or 8. That is a story within itself but I will play any number as long as it is a Titleist.

Being as Dru is my nick name, and I am a huge Atlanta Falcons fan, I use a Red Sharpie, and draw a small greek letter Delta above the ball model label.

I turn the chevron on a callaway into a peace sign, and extend the alignment stamp on both sides just a bit. If its not a callaway, I circle the numbers. Blue, always.

One Yellow dot just below/left of the number. I really like a clean, unmarked ball, and find that the least obtrusive.

Wow, great thread....This one started before I'd found MGS and was just learning how to manuever on a computer...Not that I've come very far since then..lol...Anyway, I use a Sharpie fine pink paint pen(Breat Cancer)...On my Bridgestones, I put three dots(The Holy Trinity) pyrimid style opposite Tour B330-S & if I'm playin V1xs,it's opposite the Pro V1x...

 

 

 

Fairways & Greens 4ever......

No kidding I do the same thing with my red sharpie. Three dots in a triangle on the unstamped side of the ball.
