#19 My (87-Years-Old) Father’s “Ugly” Golf Ball Collection

My old man, who is now pushing 90 and can’t get out to play anymore, was always the guy who would hit his shot, then poke around in the woods and ponds looking for golf balls. He saved buckets of good golf balls, but his real pride and joy is his collection of “ugly golf balls”. He was overjoyed any time he’d find a rotten old ball that had been hit by a mower and left to decay. The guy got a hole-in-one once, complete with a big plaque. He promptly lost that golf ball. But he invites strangers into his home to show them his ugly golf ball collection. It’s the little things!
