X-out golf balls can be beneficial due to their prices. Instead of purchasing balls at MSRP prices for practice rounds, golfers can purchase x-out balls for much cheaper.
Due to the ball having a tiny cosmetic issue, you probably won’t notice a difference while playing.
If you are a golfer who tends to lose the ball a lot, using them during practice sessions is a good idea.
One example of a benefit to playing an x-out is playing a Titleist Pro V1 or another top-end golf ball for an entire practice round vs. their brand’s x-out.
By the time you reach a certain hole both balls will have slight wear on them or a “cosmetic imperfection.”
