Buy and play golf balls based on how many balls you lose in a round of golf.
Don’t get caught up in the hype …
When you watch golf on TV, you will see a lot of ads for golf equipment, including golf balls.
You should be buying and playing golf balls that you can afford … and afford to lose.
If you’ve never played golf before or you tend to lose more than 9 golf balls per round. You should buy and use, used golf balls. If you can afford to lose $36 or more in golf balls per round, all the power to you. But if you can’t there are so many options for used golf balls that you can buy for $2 or less.
Most golf courses will sell used golf balls. Golf balls they find on their course. They are still excellent golf balls to use. These used golf balls are generally around a dollar or two each.
But a few things happen when you use a golf ball that you can’t afford to lose.
- Golf starts to get really, really expensive when you lose a lot of golf balls every round. Then you might have to quit the game because of that.
- When you use an expensive golf ball, and you hit into bushes, trees, or into the long grass. You want to go look for it. Naturally, it’s part of the game. But you need to realize, there are other golfers on the course. Take 3 to 5 minutes to look for your golf ball. If you don’t find it, drop another ball and continue.
If you can’t find the ball, chances are you probably won’t be able to hit it anyway. Please drop another ball and continue on.
However, if there is not another group behind you waiting to hit, you can look a little longer. But look behind you, if you are holding people up, it is time to move on.
