Of course the obvious problem with the ball, even if it performed as hoped, was the golfer was not allowed to touch their ball through the green. Consequently he or she was guaranteed only 18 (tee) shots with the end of the ball positioned properly at impact....
The Faroid offered here in mint condition is, in a word, SPECTACULAR!
This ball is at the back left corner ball of the group shot in the accompanying images.
