Nice spot by GolfNewsNet's Ryan Ballengee to locate a new Costco golf ball on the March 1st USGA conforming ball list.
The new ball is the Performance One Kirkland Signature ball. It also has four pieces and has a triple cover, but not a solid core. These balls are rated for medium to high spin and are made by SM Global LLC, an American subsidiary of a Korean company that is the new manufacturing partner for Costco.
While the original Costco four-piece ball remains dead as a likely one-off product, the buying craze and ability of the ball to get people in stores seems to have inspired Costco to move quickly on another ball, just as a company executive predicted.

Apart from the fact that the USGA has approved a new Costco ball, the rest is admittedly speculation. Take it for what it’s worth, but my 2 cents; it’s unlikely the K-SigP1 will be $15/dozen. Nobody, the factory included, makes reasonable money at that price. $20/dozen is plausible, I’d say even likely, but if there are legal threats, that won’t put an end to them.
