Heading into winter you’ll need to be able to see your golf ball if you’re going to keep playing – and that might mean investing in some yellow balls.

Some pros have already started using the brightly-coloured spheres, including major winners Fred Couples and Paul Lawrie.

“I’m 53, not 23, so my eyesight’s not the best,” Lawrie said, explaining his decision to put a yellow ball in play at the 150th Open at St Andrews.

“I just see it better when it’s flying. Also, when I’m in the rough as much as I am, it stands out like unbelievable. Even the marshals can see it. I quite like it actually. I never thought I’d play with a yellow ball, but I actually quite like it.”

But given they are much less common on the golf course than their white counterparts, how can you find out which brands make yellow golf balls?

Fortunately, we’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to. Keep scrolling to find out whether your brand of choice has a yellow ball…
