How to use ball in a sentence?

  1. Tiger Woods:

    I hit the ball really well today, but I missed a few putts.

  2. British Open champion Zach Johnson:

    I thought I did a great job of just staying patient, hitting the shots that the course allowed me to hit, and I struck the ball well today, so I was very pleased.

  3. Adam Schiff:

    The wrecking ball it created now has banged into our British allies and our German allies, it's continuing to grow in terms of damage, and he needs to put an end to this, now maybe this is the way he conducted his real estate business, with half-truths and sometimes no-truths and a lot of bluster. That, in my opinion, is no way to run a business. But it's an even worse way to run a country.

  4. John Eric Goff:

    A lot of us, our hands aren’t quite big enough to palm a basketball, but if you find a ball that isn’t inflated that well and squeeze it, it may be easier to palm.

  5. Tiger Woods:

    It's a good feeling for me, just go ahead and trust it's going to swing, i don't like blocking putts. I like feeling that toe move and cover that ball and it felt good today.
