1. They play exactly the same as any other ball
2. When you hit the middle of the fairway with your driver, as you walk up to your ball you have to admit it's a pretty good feeling, if you have a yellow ball, you get that feeling longer because your mind knows that it is your ball
sooner than when you have to walk all the way to it to KNOW it's your ball.
3. No one ever "picks up" or hits the yellow ball by mistake
4. Yellow balls are easier to find when you do hit them in the woods
5. Yellow balls are less than $20 for 15

I started using them this year after I found one on the course and played the rest of the round with it, and there is no turning back. If you can get past the initial "rookie" look of the yellow ball, I can assure anyone that tries it will see the difference. A few wise cracks from your partners is a small price to pay. After I won a few friendly matches, the wise cracks stopped.

Find in the leaves?? The balls I believe he is talking about are highlighter yellow so they look nothing like the leaves. If they do look like the leaves you have some interesting trees.

in a sea of bright yellow leaves a highlighter yellow ball does not stick out like a white one would my friend. acctually yellow dosent even really stick out on green grass verry well. golf balls are probably white becaus white sticks out on dark colors, like grass green, quite well. probably better than most colors anyway.

Orange Balls

Orange balls are not bad either, except in the fall. You can find them easily and you know which one is yours. But in the fall, forget it! You need to change to another color.

A number of years ago when the orange and yellow optic balls were popular, I loved the yellow balls. My somewhat poor eyesight picked up the yellow color very well and I was sorry to see them disappear from the shelves. If someone is still making a reasonable quality ball in optic yellow, I'd sure like to know about it.

I picked up a box of practice balls (I tend to hit in the water a lot...) and some of them were green. I have a hard enough time finding the white ones but green?

Maybe it's so you can see them underwater???

I used to play with the half yellow / half white ball years ago... They were really easy to find!

Now, I just mark my white balls so they are easy to spot while I'm walking in the woods next to the fairway.

My yellow ball rule is to hit them further into the woods. Have not found one of decent quality on course but they might be out there

Hey,

Can you recommend any Good Yellow colored golf ball?

The caddies had a hard time looking for it.

I will second you on this..he's right, a yellow ball makes no difference in tall grass, or leaves. I know. I don't care if is bright orange, it it goes in my ditch, it ain't coming back. It's wierd, all the colors still blend, even though the grass is grass, or whatever.

Yellow balls don't really seem to make a difference to me, except for the other people hitting your ball thing. White for me, but if you really think you need a ball that's easy to find, try the white range balls with the red stripes.​
