Old Golf Balls
While playing today, I found a pristine Titleist Tour Balata ball.

Has to be 30 something years old.

Nothing better than chipping a balata with some zip on it

I did love the Balata and Professionals Not much worse than hitting a new ball just a little thin and finding it with a .5” gash on it, though.

I still think that the Professional was one of the best balls ever made.

Those balls were great but a ProV1X is pretty special.

I have a ball display shelf but stock it with older golf balls or golf balls that have some sort of oddity.

There are a quite a few interesting ones there but I did find a Gary Player Signature ball buried after they bushwacked some waste areas.

I have a ball display rack in the garage. My favorite ball is the Spaulding Tour Edition with SHARK on the side of it.

I dug it our of a pond at Champions GC after Norman hit it in there at the Nabisco Tour Championship 20 something years ago.

I also have John Dalys ball from a Shell Houston Pro-Am that I played in years ago at the TPC Houston.

I live off a golf course and I'm in prime slice territory. I see all kinds of shite. I'm like who is hitting these. I've gotten one balata, but see a few DT90s and 384s and shit

We found a Slazenger Balata on the Golden Nugget course about 5 years ago, which I thought was crazy weird since the course wasn’t even a thought the last time someone would’ve intentionally bought a sleeve of Slazenger Balatas

I use to play the Maxfli HT Balata ball back in the day.

That was when Maxfli was a premier ball.
