Golf Balls Buying Guide
Regardless of the type of stuffing golf balls are made of (feathers, rubber or liquid), golf is a game that is known for its consistency and accuracy besides the distance. In golf, it is not mandatory for the golf balls to fly straight but should fly to a far distance. The technology of producing golf balls has grown immensely that they are now available in various kinds and features making it easy to choose the right one just as a golfer would choose the right type of clubs.
- One-piece golf balls are meant for beginners as their design is very basic and may be occasionally used as driving range golf balls. A solid Surlyn piece with moulded dimples make these balls durable and affordable.
- Two-piece golf balls are most often used by daily golfers as they can travel longer distance and are durable. These balls normally have hard plastic (one solid sphere) enclosed by a cover. Resin or acrylic can form the solid core and is covered by cut-proof material.
- Three-piece golf balls come with a liquid or solid rubber centre and have a durable moulded cover made of balate, Surlyn or similar to Surlyn. Skillful golfer might get good control over the flight of these balls as they can take great spin.
- Four-piece golf balls are not yet available for use, and hence are said to be the ball of the future. The first or innermost layer has a solid rubber to cover great distances, the next layer above it is meant to transfer the strike energy to the core of the ball. The third layer is meant for producing middle iron spin and for increasing the driver distance and the outermost layer is said to be the thinnest of all with 300 to 500 dimples. Normally, it is soft urethane material but very durable.
- Low spin golf balls fly straight in the air but might not travel to great distances and also would result in rolling during landing. Low spin can be chosen by you, if you can slice balls and struggle to hit good distance as these balls can fly straight and run over the fairways.
- Mid spin golf balls try to combine good feel and distance. The efficiency, softness and feel differ from one brand to another. Mid spin balls are good for all kinds of players.
- High spin golf balls are created to produce more spin in the air. These types of balls can be carried to longer distances. Players who hit from right to left can use these balls.
