Found some interesting golf balls

My kids and I finally went through the HUNDREDS of golf balls we’ve found over the last couple of weeks here on the course. I’m living on the #17th fairway for about 2-4 more weeks :-(

These two particular balls seemed interesting. The Nike ball is obviously some kind of prototype. Perhaps they try some stuff with different prototypes and give them numbers. Then they wait for feedback from the testers and cross reference the numbers with the tester’s opinions… Sounds logical.

The Spalding ball I can’t believe we found. This course we’re on is only about 4-5 years old. But this ball is considerably older than that. And was someone playing this thing? No wonder they lost it. It’s so oblong it wouldn’t fly straight with a 120mph tail wind.
