A lot of golfers will relate to the post this week. Many players have golf ball collections somewhere in their homes or offices. I am definitely in that category. Hopefully mine is not yet complete. I don’t always get a ball at Top 100 courses, but my collection has some. Other balls have a special story. I figured I would share a few from my collection with you.
You will see a couple novelty balls in here. Those are just place holders for now. The Top 100 balls that are present include Pete Dye Golf Club, Caledonia, The Ocean Course at Kiawah, Shadow Creek, Scioto, Pinehurst #2, Cog Hill #4, Olympia Fields (North), and The Dunes.
The other balls have stories. The one on the top left is my hole in one ball! I treasure that one and it is in the number one position. The signed ball next to it is from a pro-junior tournament I played in eighth grade. Our pro was Gary Christian and he couldn’t have been nicer. The signed ball on the second row came from Dave Stockton Jr. at the corporate event I got to play at Olympia Fields this past September.
You will have to forgive the Yankees ball in there. That is my wife’s and frankly this Red Sox fan cannot stand to look at it! I do have my own personalized ball two to the right of it that has “Laser Show” on it to show a little Boston love with Dustin Pedroia’s nickname.
So what balls are in your collection? What do they mean to you? I hope you keep adding to your trophy cases!
