Like the idea of #2 and the font in #1 so far. Not excited about #3 or #4. The $ in #4 seems to be in poor taste.

#6 has some merit although could use more color.
Can I see #2 or #7 using the font in #1?

Can anyone do something with the initials KSMS or an abstract golfer?

I like the direction of #9 with the shield and KSMS. I did think the color seperation and flow of the background in #8 was nicer. The new flag also gives me a place to add the year if needed.

The colors in #5 don't quite work for me. I'm also concerned the golfball won't transfer well to a shirt.

From several years experience, I can tell you that the golf ball is usually transfer well to a tshirt. Just be sure that the black dots are large enough on the final print.

You may be correct on the ball. I've just never seen one embroidered like that. I'm sure I can use a full ball in the embroidery and the shaded ball other places.

Designs like #9 and #11 are getting my attention. I can use them on golf balls without the wording below and on the website and shirts without the KSMS above and still have everyone understand what it is.

So here is my shot at it.

I would like to thank everyone for their hard work to this point. This experience was certainly not what I had expected nor did it go the direction I thought it would. All of you have great ideas, some just didn't fit with our vision but a couple pulled me away from my original amature designer ideas. I will certainly be putting up another contest soon.
Kudos to all...
