What is it?
A List of all of the golf balls that have been submitted for evaluation within the last 12 months, and ruled to conform to the Rules of Golf. In order for a ball to remain on the List after 12 months, the manufacturer is required to submit additional samples.
How often is this List updated?
First Wednesday of every month.
How do I identify my ball?
When searching the List, close attention should be paid to the "Pole" and “Seam” markings. These are a detailed description of the markings on the ball, which identify the exact model in question, as distinguishable from another. (Link to 3b-2 and 3e)
What if my ball is not listed?
It may not have been submitted, but may still conform for use at non-elite level
It may have been ruled non-conforming
It may have expired from the List – which means it should still be considered ‘conforming’ for use at non-elite level
It must NOT be used when the condition is in effect
