Year In Review, Vol. 19: R.I.P. Ball

2005.jpgAnother favorite story was Lawrence Donegan's Guardian exclusive titled, "'Trust me, life is much easier with a sand wedge than a four-iron."

Donegan watched Gary Orr play Loch Lomond with a ball mysteriously circulated by an anonymous (I wonder who?!) manufacturer with the stampings "Distance R.I.P" on one side, and "This is the ball Jack wants you to hit" on the other.

If you missed it, here's the original post and a November follow-up by Donegan checking in with the governing bodies to see if anyone submitted "rolled back" balls similar to the "Distance R.I.P."
