(per R&A USGA Rules of Golf; maximum rule weight)
According to the Rules of Golf (as approved by the United States Golf Association and the Rules Committee of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of Saint Andrews), golf balls must weigh no more than 0.10130 pounds.

It's about 100,000 times as heavy as a Light Bulb
In other words, 8,800 pounds is 120,000 times the weight of a Light Bulb, and the weight of a Light Bulb is 0.00000830 times that amount.
(a.k.a. lamp) (for A19-size, 60w, incandescent bulb by Bulbrite; package weight)
A standard, sixty-watt light bulb weighs about 0.075 pounds. The tightly-coiled filament inside a bulb of this size would measure about 579mm if uncoiled and stretched out.
It's about 150,000 times as heavy as a Battery (AA)
In other words, the weight of a Battery (AA) is 0.00000590 times 8,800 pounds.
(Alkaline)
An "AA" size battery weighs 0.053 pounds. AA batteries came into common use during World War II and were given their name by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee C18 because they were smaller than the "A" size batteries which were invented first.
It's about 200,000 times as heavy as a Mouse

(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (Post 1986 weight reduction; total weight of bridge, anchorage, and approaches)
Following the completion of the 1986 project to eliminate excess material, the total weight of the Golden Gate Bridge — including its anchorages and approaches — is 1,770,000,000 pounds. The two main cables in the spanning the bridge are spun out of a total of 129,000 km (80,200 mi) of wire.

In other words, the weight of a Compact disc is 0.00000370 times 8,800 pounds.
(a.k.a. CD)
A compact disc typically weighs 0.033 pounds. Data is stored on CDs by encoding into the track a series of tiny pits — each between 3.5 and 850 µm (0.00014 and 0.033 in) in length.
It's about 350,000 times as heavy as a Battery (AAA)
In other words, the weight of a Battery (AAA) is 0.00000300 times 8,800 pounds.
(Alkaline)
An "AAA" size battery weighs 0.026 pounds. Batteries are named by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee C18 and AAA batteries were given their name because they were smaller than the "AA" and "A" size batteries which were invented first.
