I have the following, none of which I paid for:
ProV1x: 46 dozen
ProV1: 23 dozen
C/S: 1.5 dozen
Mid-Price: 9 dozen
Winter: 6 dozen
Range: 8 dozen
Which weapon was used in the heist Sean?
Lol! Our course is littered with trouble, and for some reason a lot of the members play the ProV. I am the beneficiary of their largess. :-)
So, ball retriever ; )
Lots of beat to hell Top Flites and Pinnacles where I place my peg. Finding a premium ball is a rarity. Trade in my finds at a local range and/or give them away to those who want/need them. Am up to 248 balls so it's nearly time to purge.
I've accumulated 13 dozen balls of various brands. All urethane, all 3 piece or more.
Have a weird habit of playing balls I find and leaving the new ones in the bag/box. No clue why as I don't fret when I lose one. I'm sure it's a habit from my early days.
I will pick up the occasional Top Flight and Pinnacle, but I still don't get why so many folks purchase the ProV. It is very rare indeed to play our course and not lose at least one or two golf balls a round...regardless of HI.
I don't use a ball retriever. A simple walk in the woods will do, if you don't mind the briars, mosquitos, ticks, fallen branches, and the occasional coyote. I have never been too keen on balls that have been sitting in the water. A few weeks ago I was walking along the stream on the 6th hole that parallels the fairway and counted 92 golf balls. Last year during a "walkabout" I found 86 golf balls alone on our first hole. I have cut back on my "ball walks" this season. I caught myself the other day in the woods, and asked myself, "What the f are you doing?" lol
On Monday's the course doesn't open until 11:00, so I would put on some jeans, boots, grab my field jacket, a canvas tote and hit the woods. These "ball walks" were especially lucrative if there was a tournament over the weekend...heck, I have even found some of my golf balls. lol
Yesterday I found 7 ProV's (in great condition...a lot of one hit wonders), and that was just walking along the edges.
My game would probably be better served using the same golf ball all the time, but the thought of paying for golf balls gives me the willies.
