Choosing the Best Performance Golf Balls

Jun 19, 2008
Figuring out the best type of ball to buy to increase success in your golf game is a difficult thing to do since there are shelves upon shelves of them at every pro shop and sporting goods store. Everyone has probably studied the assortment of balls at a store and scratched their head, not knowing which ones to buy. There are so many different kinds like low compression, titanium core, soft, long, hard, ultras, tours and premiers, how is anyone expected to know which one to pick?

The truth of the matter is, different balls are for different types of golfers. All of the companies that manufacture golf balls want you to think that their balls are designed for every type of golfer, but this is simply not true. No matter what type of ball you decide to go with, all of them have dimple patterns on the cover that help to optimize the aerodynamics of the ball. This design pattern with the dimples controls many different parts of the shot like distance, velocity, spin, control, straightness and trajectory.

The dimples on the ball also help with the lift that the ball will get because they can keep the flow attached to it while the ball spins backwards. The upper surface of the ball increases the speed of its backspin with much less friction than the bottom of the ball. The bottom part of the ball decreases in speed due to more friction. The air that passes over the ball gets dragged around to the back of the ball, producing its lift. The ball starts to drop significantly due to the air flow behind the ball once it loses its carry and gravity begins to take over.

Many companies have begun making customized balls too and they have quickly become the hottest product on the market today. Many of the major brands have started doing this for their customers and offer an option to have a customized graphic printed on your ball. Some companies have pre printed graphics on balls that you can choose from, but many of them offer the choice of graphic so you can really customize it and give it that personalized touch. These balls are very unique and people buy them and use them for a large variety of purposes. Some purchase them as gifts, others use them as corporate promotional items, and some people use them as a distinctive mark, to give their balls that special look.

Balls are a very complex part of the game, but with a little time and research you can find the perfect one for you and improve your game ten fold.
