Well maybe not yours.
Unless you lost them in the long grass by the creek on hole #3.
One of the perks of a summer golf course gig is looking for lost balls in the off season. They're not for us; My Fella and I both have a ton of golf balls at home.
The beat up balls we dig up are tossed in a barrel for staff to use. And the newer ones get a good scrub down and are resold in the pro shop. It's surprising how many brand new balls we find buried in the grass... titleists, srixons and calloways that have only been hit a few times.
here's my Scoopy, otherwise known as a golf ball retriever
and this is the creek where balls hide in the long grass
uncovered two right off the bat
and after an hour we dug up this many
My Fella figures we scooped about 200 balls - fun way to kill time on a gloomy Sunday
