    Re: Following the ball

    I find it especially bad when playing against the sun. On the other occasions, I have at least a rough idea where the ball landed, even if I did not actually see it down all the way, but on one of our holes specifically, I lose it in the glare pretty much as soon as it takes off, with no idea even of the general direction it went. And I even sometimes find it hard to spot on the fairway until I am almost standig right on it.

    Re: Following the ball

    Some folks I play with seem to have little clue where their ball has gone much of the time - usually when we have to try and find it. Not sure it's anything to do with the colour of the ball against the sky. Just wish they'd watch it more carefully. Have to say that I certainly find it easier to follow a coloured ball when the light is very flat and the sky is grey - I just don't like playing a coloured ball.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

    I tried the red ones, couldn’t see em on the ground, I reckon I’m a bit red/green colour blind

    Exactly the same. I don't have any problems with my vision and was told on my last eye test it had in fact improved somehow!
    But lately in these overcast conditions I really struggle to follow it. Weird

    I wear specs and occasionally struggle against the sky. Found yellow Truvis to be better when it was overcast and lower light.
    Once it brightens up (i.e. those 3 weeks in August ) I can switch to the white and red version and still be using the same ball.
