How to Select the Right Golf Balls

Golf Balls For Beginners

Time to restock your golf balls and improve your game? With so many top brand golf balls to choose from, it’s hard to pick the right one. Maybe you want to maximize distance. Or, maybe you need more spin. Or what about better control? Knowing what you’re looking to improve will help you select the best top-brand ball.

What Kind of Control Does Your Golf Game Need?

Manufacturers design these balls to help with three areas of your golf game: control, spin, and distance. Quite often if you’re a high handicap player, you’ll want a golf ball that offers additional distance. Generally if you’re a low handicap golfer, you’ll want a ball that’s designed for additional spin to gain accuracy. Check out the “About This Item" section on each of the product pages to learn how each ball is constructed and what benefits it offers.

How Your Golf Ball Is Constructed?

No matter if you’re buying a top brand or a discount golf ball, they’re constructed one of two ways—multilayer or two-piece designs.

  • Two-piece golf balls: The two-piece golf ball has a hard, surlyn cover and a solid center core. If you’re a beginner, this is the ball for you. The larger core will give your greater distance and will minimize the ball’s spin and movement. The cover adds protection to the ball and reduces stray shots. With a hard outer shell, this ball will take a lot of hits before you have to replace it.
  • Multi-layer golf balls: The multilayer golf ball has a thin outer layer that is usually made of urethane, and the internal layers can be different materials, even liquid. If you’re a mid-to-low handicapper with a faster swing, then a multilayered ball will be right for you. Extra layers offer more control, feel, and shot sculpting. A thinner cover gives you more spin control.

What’s the Compression Rating of a Golf Ball?

Golf ball compression determines the density of the ball, and density affects distance and loft. Each time a ball is hit, the force compresses and flattens the ball. The lower the compression the farther the ball travels. Lower compression balls are ideal for beginners, and low handicap golfers will be looking for higher compression golf balls.
