As winter approaches we see the landscape of the golf course change, with the ground becoming sodden and the leaves falling off the trees and onto the turf.
Because of the unfavourable conditions, one such challenge can be locating your golf ball when you go offline, with many permutations possibly costing you shots.
So what can you do to stop this scenario from happening to you? Well, yellow golf balls could be a start.
It was in 1982 that we saw Wayne Levi become the first player to win with a colored golf ball on the PGA Tour. Later that year, Jerry Pate won the Players Championship with an orange golf ball.
Callaway, Titleist, Srixon and TaylorMade have all embraced the idea of creating a yellow golf ball, with their different models now available at very good prices.
You may be wondering should you play a yellow golf ball instead of a traditional white one?
Yellow golf balls stand out a lot more on the golf course, especially in overcast conditions and can be much easier to see in-flight than a white one.
Not only that, but when standing up to address, the colored ball appears larger and therefore a bigger target to hit.
Golf is a difficult enough game as it is; anything that makes it seem easier is certainly worth trying at least once.
Below we pick out the best live prices on yellow golf balls...
