SHOW OFF! - How Do You Mark Your Balls?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I don’t remember seeing anything like this, maybe a few years ago we did something like this. 

So how do you mark your golf ball. Anyone mark them like this. I don’t have a photo of mine. I am currently trying to come up with a good. I really want to make my own, but I don’t want to spend 100 bucks on Tin cup to have one made. Anyway. How do y’all mark ‘em

Three crosses above and to the right of the brand logo. Color doesn’t really matter but I’ve always used that same mark. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

If it makes you feel better, this was like 4 different threads all merged.  Very good topic so it's good to have all the discussions together. Great history with lots of unique ideas. 

My daughter saw me marking balls (3 green dots below the number) - "ohhhh, coool! Can I draw on your golf ball dad?" Sure, why not. For those that know.... you know. For those that don't, it

I just started highlighting the number

A black dot, widely spaced, on each side of the number on both sides of the ball.  If I have to hit a provisional, and don't have a different number handy, I'll add a dot just below the number.

Either with a Line-Up line or just a dot to the right of the number, depending on my mood.  I tend to use different color markers to distinguish one from another.  Even when I use a line, I don't always line up my putt with the line -- it's more to identify my ball.  When I buy a dozen balls, I dump them all into the box lid, mark them, then put them back in the individual boxes with a different numbered ball in each box of 3

I have an American flag Tin Cup that I was given, so I pretty much use that.  I'm awful with it, though.  There seem to be a lot of runs in the ink, no matter what I try.0403192147-01.jpeg.15a009cb67784e70076caa697a71f4a7.jpeg

Well, it seems like this topic comes up at the beginning of every year. Then fizzles our, and gets ressurected the next year. Nice.

I actually went back and read some of the posts from 2010, I joined somewhere around 2011-2012 I think. So it was cool to read posts from a few folks that aren’t around anymore

One of our Saturday game golfers gave me a template to mark my balls. So I chose the . So right now, all the balls in m6 inventory have the American Flag on them.

Blue ink on white balls, black ink on yellow. A for Addison and T for Thomas (my munchkins) on each side of the number on both sides. Always mark one ball with same letters only on one side in case on the emergency provisional. Also have THEZIPR imprinted on them.

Until we get the MGS test results, I’m going to continue with the leftover ProV1x stock from last season.

 

Every ball gets one yellow dot on the side where the ProV1x line is to the right. I started using yellow in 1999 when I learned how David Duval marks his in a WITB special. Been working well for me ever since.

 

Oh, and I don’t use #2 balls. They’re bad luck.
