    Following the ball

    I sometimes have trouble filling the ball in cloudy/overcast conditions. It tends to be worse at this time of year with the poor light, does anyone else have this issue ?

    Have you tried using a vivid yellow ball such as the new Titleist Tour Soft?

    No if I'm honest it doesn't cause much issue on course but it annoys me at the driving range if I'm struggling to see the flight

    tried a Volvic the other week - bright green - great in the air but then lost it in a bush!

    Try the yellow Volvik. I found it very easy to follow and stood out well against the grass. Not sure it would be any better than the green one if it delves into a bush.

    I can also vouch for that. Easy to find in the snow last weekend. Had to make sure I didn't go where the dog walkers had been though.

    I have terrible trouble with grey skies, more often at the range for some reason. Sometimes pack in hitting the driver.

    Re: Following the ball

    We have been having the same problem at this time of year, just lose the ball as it drops near the horizon.
