D27/10 Player Unable to Distinguish His Ball from Another Ball

Q. A and B hit their tee shots into the same area. Both balls were found but, because A and B were playing identical balls and neither had put an identification mark on his ball, they could not determine which ball was A's and which was B's. What is the ruling?

A. Since neither player could identify a ball as his ball, both balls were lost - see Definition of "Lost Ball."

This incident underlines the advisability of the player putting an identification mark on his ball - see Rules 6-5 and 12-2.
Knowledge of the Rules is part of the applied skill set which a player must use to play a round of competitive golf.

And in playing golf for 30 years this has happened zero times.

My foursome doesn’t all have the same brand, number, distance and dispersion.

I am superstitious about numbers, don't like 2s and 4s, so I like to make it simple and cover the number, golf dotz or tin cup stencil. This is my favorite golf dotz

My foursome doesn’t all have the same brand, number, distance and dispersion.  
In a tournament a few years ago, on the first hole, a friend of mine hit his drive close to the OB line, but over a hill.  So he played a provisional.  And got to the area, found both balls, neither was marked, so he couldn't tell the first from the second.  Per decision 27/11, he was able to choose which ball to play, but had to assume it was his provisional lying 3.  If he had marked them (differently) he'd have been lying 1.  Ever since, I mark my ball every time I play, and make sure I can tell my original from a provisional.

When I've used ProV1x, indistinguishable from the majority of other balls in use at my club on any given day, I put my initials on each ball before putting it into play. Yeah, boring I know. Usually my Sharpie is a bright pink or magenta or similar color that's easy to see.

When I'm using an "odd ball" like my current AVX there's no need to mark it but if I do, it's still just my two-letter initials. Gets the job done as noone else I know of at my club shares my initials.

P.S. By "two letter initials" I mean my first and middle initials. If I use first and last initials it's a more common combination.

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Oh, I didn't realize that I'd not described my mark.  For a long time, I've used two black dots, widely spaced on each side of the number.  My wife uses one of the stencils available, usually a flamingo with a pink sharpie.

So your reply doesn't make any sense
