Which Golf Ball is Best for You?

Even with modern technology the question of which golf ball best suits golfers still applies today.

Golfers of all standards see the experts playing with the Titleist Pro-V1 and assume that that is the ball for them only to see it disappear into the nearest water hazard after one hit or look like it has been on a cheese grater after a few bad shots.

Here are a few pointers to the most frequesntly asked questions in respect of which golf ball to use:

What is the difference between golf balls?

The main difference between golf balls the material used for the cover with cheaper balls using ionomer and more expensive balls using urethane.

Why do golf balls have dimples?

Dimples on a golf ball create a thin turbulent boundary layer of air that clings to the ball’s surface. This allows the smoothly flowing air to follow the ball’ss urface a little farther around the back side of the ball, thereby decreasing the size of the wake.

Which Golf Balls are easiest to see?

White is of course the most common colour but bright yellow is an excellent alternative for visability against green grass.

How long can you keep a golf ball before use?

Titleist gof balls can remain in storage for five years or more as long as they are kept indoors away from excessive heat.

Which is the best ball for a beginner?

Pinnacle soft,Titleist velocity,Callaway soft and warbird,Srixon AD333 or Taylormade burner.

Which is the best ball for the Mid-Handicapper?

Titleist NXT Tour Srixon Q-Star,Callaway SuperSoft, Bridgestone E6 Soft or Taylormade Project.

Which are the best golf balls overall?

Titleist Pro V1 & Pro V1x,Srixon Z-Star & Z-Star XV,TaylorMade TP5 & TP5x,Callaway Chrome Soft & Chrome Soft X,Mizuno MP-S & MP-X, and Vice Golf Pro & Pro Plus.

Every player need to look for a golf ball that suits them and that could be because of affordability,wear resistance,distance,feel or spin elements.

However I am sure that many local golfers will ignore the above information and continue to buy a bag of lake balls from the man  from is car boot at the entrance to golf courses.
