Golf balls are expensive. And I want
to be perfectly frank here. If you can't break 110 on
any given day. There is no reason why you should go
out and buy any ball that that is not one of the cheapest
in the store. Do not fall victim to the marketing and
techno ramblings of the manufactures. Any cheap ball
will do if it is purchased new.
Many people buy more expensive balls under
the false pretences that it will make them play better.
This is not true. Cheaper balls will last longer, go
further and straighter for the average golfer compared
to the more expensive balls. It is these two things
that the average golfer should be most concerned about
When golfer can shoot scores between 95-110
consistently then it is time to upgrade your golf ball
choice slightly. This means go out and buy the mid range
balls that are not priced as the cheapest in the store,
but at the same time not the most expensive. These mid
rage balls will last just as long as the cheap balls,
go just as far and will begin to introduce the golfer
to higher spin speeds and slightly more feel than than
were present in the cheap balls.
Once you can break 90 consistently, it
is time to go to the expensive balls. The soft balls
such as ballatas (made by reputable golf manufactures
such as Titles, Spalding Topflight, Wilson, and Precept)
will tend to be the most expensive. It is these balls
that the touring pro's use and for good reason, they
help lower score for a good golfer. Good golfers can
manipulate swings and impact positions in order to work
the ball more effectively around the course, and it
is these softer balls that will allow for this control
to be maximized.
