Bogleheads -

Does anyone know where to buy them? The online store did not have them listed.

Wouldn't that be slightly before par returns due to extremely low MER. :wink:

Actually slightly above par due to securities lending.

Didn't know this was a thing. I also don't like putting logos of things I like on my golf ball -- what if I end up needing to hit that logo for my second or later shot? It's only on the tee where I can make sure I don't hit that logo (or if you're inclined to put your ball down when putting in a particular way, I suppose then too).

good to know the chandlery will offer them. All I found was this:

And it costs $4.58 for one ball...plus $5.50 shipping and handling!! One ball!! It's vintage though, so there's that.
