Which golf ball is best for you?
So which golf is best for your game and why? Let’s find out…
Firstly, what makes up a golf ball and how many styles of balls are there? The most basic golf balls on the market are 2-piece balls. This is a solid rubber core and firm outside material. These tend to offer maximum distance off the ball so are great for new or older golfers seeking the maximum potential from their swing. The next golf ball is the 3-piece, which is the middle ground of golf balls. They generate a higher level of spin for players who are looking for a more refined feel around the green. Finally, we have the multi-layered golf balls, predominately 4-piece, but in some cases 5. These balls are utilized by tour professionals and high-level club golfers. This is because of their increased amount of ball on clubface feel and the higher level of spin generated to enable them to hit their approach shots closer to the pin.
Choosing the right ball for you depends on the level of golfer you are. If you struggle to create any power in your swing and resulting in an undesirable distance, then the 2-piece ball may be for you. However, if you are a player who relies on his chipping around the green to make par and struggle with distance the 3-piece ball will be well suited to you. Many club golfers choose to play the most premium balls as they feel it will give them a ‘premium’ outcome. But it is not the case. On the other hand, if you are an aspiring high-level golfer then the multi-layer golf ball will give you the best chance of improving your game and reaching your maximum playing potential.
The most important question to ask yourself before you purchase your golf balls is, what do I want to get out of this ball? What will the outcome be? Do not just buy a golf ball because the very small percentage of tour pros use these, tailor it to your own needs.
