HOW TO CHOOSE A GOLF BALL

The golf ball that you choose to play with is the difference between you shooting 82 and 78. There is some serious technology packed in the golf ball and it’s all about learning to use it to our advantage.

With so many options out there how do we find the right one for us?

WHAT IS YOUR SWING SPEED?

You require higher swing speeds to get the most potential out of multilayer balls, especially 5 Layer balls. The more accomplished golfer will benefit from a high-end, tour-standard golf ball as they are designed to help the better ball strikers with faster swings.

CONSTRUCTION OF GOLF BALL

A slow swing with high compression, the high-spinning golf ball will not yield good results. Conversely, a faster swinger of the club will lose distance by using a low compression ball.

FEATURES MULTI-LAYER CONSTRUCTION 2 PIECE BALLS
CONSTRUCTION 3,4,5 - piece balls Feels firm/hard Feels soft
COMPRESSION Mid to high compression Low Compression
IDEAL FOR Mid to low handicappers with faster swing speed Beginners and high handicap golfers with slower swing speed
CORE Core/mantle gives more control, feel, and shot shaping The large core maximizes distances and minimizes spin
COVER The thin cover enhances spin and gives a soft, crisp feel Thick cover provides more forgiveness
PRICE Most of them are x models aimed at reducing spin. Tend to be high priced Tend to be low priced

What is your expectation from a ball? Distance, Control.

COVER

The cover is the outermost layer of the golf ball which has an influence on the spin and aerodynamics of the shot. It is made using one of two materials that is surlyn (ionomer) or urethane

FEATURES URETHANE COVER SURLYN/IONOMER COVER
IDEAL FOR Tour Preferred Golf Balls For more skilled players Ideal for beginners an high handicappers

PRICE High Low

SKILL LEVEL

BEGINNERS INTERMEDIATE ADVANCED
High handicappers and slow swingers need as low a compression ball as possible therefore any 2 Layer ball will work best for them. An intermediate player with a medium to high swing speed will benefit from a mid-compression 2/3 Layer golf balls Players with the highest swing speeds should get the best results from high compression golf balls typically 3-5 Layer Tour Models

CONCLUSION

If you are a beginner or a high handicap player a 2-piece golf ball with low compression will be best suitable for you as it will make the ball go longer and straighter.On the other hand, a multi-layered high compression ball would benefit the mild to low handicap players with faster wing speed giving them better control, feel, and accuracy.
