identifying your golf ball

You are responsible for playing the correct golf ball at all times, so it’s wise to put some kind of mark on it, perhaps with a Sharpie pen, to make it easier to confirm that it is yours.

If you haven’t put an identification mark on your ball you should still be okay as, if you find one which is the same brand, model, number and condition as yours in an area where you expect it to be, that is usually good enough, unless a similar or identical ball is in the same area and there’s no way of knowing which is which.
