What Golf Ball Should You Use?
No matter how good a golfer
may be, he or she will not be any good at all without golf balls.
Granted, it is a no-brainer that golfers need to have golf balls
in order to play. But, the question is, which golf balls are the
This is a sticky situation and depends almost entirely the individual
golfer and his or her tastes, what he or she expects out of the
ball, and, quite frankly, how much money he or she wants to spend.
There are golfers out there who will play with nothing but one brand
of ball. No matter what else happens, they will only and always
use this particular brand. What these balls cost is irrelevant to
them. It is this ball or no golf. Yes, this going to the extremes,
but, let s face it, there are people in this world who prefer living
life at the extreme edge of sanity.
Now, let s get down to some common sense when it comes to the golf
ball. We shall start with the beginning golfer. The beginner needs
to forget what he or she may have heard about any brand or type
of golf ball, what it does and how far it goes. Beginning golfers
are going to lose a lot of golf balls. They need to think more about
price than quality. The beginning golfer needs to purchase been
around balls, which are balls sold in bulk (around 50 to a bag),
that have been found on golf courses and recycled, for lack of a
OK, these used golf balls are more often than not name brand balls,
but this does not matter. The beginning golfer, in learning how
to hit the ball straight, keep it in the fairway, out of the woods
and water, will go through dozens, if not hundreds of golf balls.
Therefore, the logical thing for the beginning golfer to do is buy
As the golfer gets better, the best idea would be to move up to
a better grade of ball. This, though, does not mean to rush out
to the nearest golfing supply house and buy the most expensive ball
on the shelves. Again, think about the price of the ball and the
level of your skill.
If a player has a tendency to slice the ball, or tends to top the
ball (this is where the club head hits the top of the ball. While
it gives the ball a lot of top spin, the ball does not travel far,
and tends to be gashed by the club), stick with cheap balls. This
does not mean stay with the bulk recycled balls, but inexpensive
In theory, players get better the more they play. As the skill level
increases, the golfer can experiment with different brands of golf
balls, checking to see which ones he or she may like the best. And,
a lot of thought should be given to the type of course the golfer
will be using these balls on.
