Old School Golfer - New School Golf Balls

I'm not shy about admitting that I don't have the prettiest of golf swings, but I've learned to live with it.  I hit the ball relatively straight, just not as long as some guys.  So, I do my best to keep it between the ditches on the short grass and play a percentage game.  I've given lessons a try a few times, but over time, I always seem to slowly steer back to my old style.  I suppose there's a reason for the saying 'You can't teach an old dog new tricks'.  Although I may be stuck in my ways in a sense, I still like to try the 'new and improved' golf products that hit the market.

Recently I was fortunate to be introduced to a new golf ball manufacturer called Vision Golf.  From the moment I saw them I could tell they weren't like your everyday golf ball.  Have a look at the picture to the left and I think you'll see what I mean.  Coming in an array of colors, the cover also has a unique look to it.  It's personal preference, but I for one enjoy playing with something a little unique and original.  But enough about the look, lets find out how they perform.

I took them out for a test run last week, and was pleased with the way the felt.  I typically like to play a softer ball, and the Vision ball seemed to be right on par with what I usually look for.  But wait, the best is yet to come!  By far, the coolest of the Vision balls was the 808 prototype ball.  It performed really well, and as you can see from the picture below, it has a UV retaining cover which makes it glow in the dark!!  I've seen other glow in the dark golf balls, where the golf ball has a hole through it and you insert a little glow stick.  The flaw in that system is obvious, throwing off the balance of the ball.  But the Vision ball, is by far the highest performing glow ball I've ever seen.

As many of you know, living in Hawaii, the sun sets early in the evening, making this ball fantastic for those twilight rounds of golf!  Find out more information about Vision golf balls at: www.visiongolfball.com
