Foundgolfballs.com offers used golf balls to the golfing public in 2 categories. Recycled golf balls and Refinished golf balls.
What’s the Difference? Not much!
Recycled Golf Balls are similar to eggs. They are washed, brand and type sorted, and then graded by color and cover condition. The recycled balls are sorted into Mint No Logo, Mint, Grade A, and Grade B conditions so the consumer can choose the quality and price point they wish to purchase.
Factory Refinished Golf Balls are taken to the next step. If a golf ball is 100% intact with no cover abrasions or cuts but is just cosmetically stained, then we refinish some of these golf balls. We only refinish top-end golf balls as this process is expensive. This process is done in a golf ball manufacturing facility that has been manufacturing golf balls for over 80 years in the USA. This process enhances the cosmetics of the ball so it appears and performs similarly to a new ball without any significant depreciation in performance.
It is important to note that during the refinishing process we do not and cannot repair golf balls. If the golf balls have any abrasions in the cover due to cart path, tree or scrape marks they are discarded.
Did You Know: Factory Refinished golf balls have been formally accepted by the USGA. Rule 5-1/4 of the USGA rule book states that “it is permissible for such a ball to be used”. So there you have it, Refinished golf balls are permissible in tournament play!
