I have done this.  It works.  I forget where i learned about this...some other golf forum.  You can buy several colors of dye off of eBay.  You need the polyetser dye, specifically, to penetrate the cover of the ball.   Jacquard iDye Poly is what I used.  The yellow worked well on Pro v and Srixon URS.  You have to do trial and error to get your desired color intensity with the dye and water.  Soak the balls anywhere from 2-6 hours.  *****BE ADVISED****my personal experience resulted in yellow, yes, but not even close to Srixon yellow-green.  Just a regular, almost dull yellow.  ALSO, when the ball scuffs, the scuff shows the original white.

Too weak.  I had the same thought and bought some tonight to try.  Let it soak for about 10 minutes and it just cleaned right off.  Then I let it soak for an hour...same thing.  It pretty much just puts water on the cover and doesn't stain.

I took the ProV and SoLo  to the course and what a joke. The ProV was white by the 4th hole and the SoLo lost
1/2 of it's color sitting in the sun in a cart waiting to be played.

Yea I gave it a go too and had the same result. I'll leave it overnight if there is still no sign of staining might have to give something else a go.

I can see Titleist adopting this "turmeric technology" in their 2013 golf ball line. They will make your ball pocket smell a bit dodgy though.

I promised I'd be back with a pic....
I tried the method that was used in the video that was posted in this thread. Used the RIT dye which can be bought at Wal-Mart. The results were not that great in my opinion. You will never get the same type of yellow like the store bought balls...BUT, if you want to dye your golfs balls just to get some different color shades, it works.



Edit- Forgot to mention...I tried this with Surlyn cover ball and it did not work. But tried this Urethane covered TP Red.LDP below and it did change the color some.

That turned out better than I expected it would.  I might have to try this now with the Callaway HEX Black as I really like that ball, but they don't make it in yellow.

Silly question... Suppose you used one in a tourney...  Theres no way it would be Illegal correct?  Since the ball is not been modified.  Probably the same as if it were left in the sun for 2 weeks

I tried it last night. Used about 3/4 cup of hot water and about 1Tablespoon of tumeric. Put the ball in, skake well and left overnight. You probably want to make the solution as concentrated as you can, so just find the smallest jar that a golf ball can fit into then add the water so it just covers the ball, add tumeric.

Came out better than expect, I thought it would come out a dirty yellow but it's brighter than it looks.

That must have been some tour issue turmeric! Pretty darn good. Now kinda wish you'd done a ball that doesn't come in yellow to be sure it's not an actual yellow Srixon ball! Lol. No, seriously.

No, i don't think they do. And u can pretty much tell it's legit as the "2" on the yellow ball is green.

Anybody tried Spike It plastic worm dye?  They make it in chartreuse which should be much closer to actual yellow balls. Only problem is the Spike It I've got and found in stores is garlic. They make it in non-garlic but haven't found it local. As fast and effectively as it dyes plastic worms, it's gotta work on golf balls.

Here is the Gamer V2 that I tried the XV next to it is a Tour Yellow for comparison...I will let you guys be the judge. This was after about two hours of soaking. I put it back in and I am going to let it soak over night.
