What Golf Ball Suits Me Best?

Every golfer faces the same problem. The expense of equipment is getting higher and higher and a lot of us golfers love to have the top end gear, here's how to choose the right golf ball for your game and your pocket.

I'm here to give you a few suggestion to which what golf ball to use to improve your game in as many aspects as possible.

1) Price
2) Handicap Specific
3) Course Type. (Links/ParkLand)

We will take 4 brands.

  • Titleist
  • Callaway
  • Taylormade
  • Bridgestone

The ball needed to play links golf compared to parkland golf would be less spin off the tee and more spin around the green. As in links golf you do not need to shape the ball too much off the tee but the greens are of course harder so the more spin you can create, the better.

The classic links golf ball would be, Hex chrome from Callaway. It comes in at 27 euro. Mainly suited for swings below 95 mph which is not too slow, well in the winds any ways.

And for your average parkland I'd recommend a higher spin tee ball for controllability and average spin around the green.

Maybe something like, the Bridgestone B330-S. I'd try that ball out if you get the chance. 35 Euro.

Lower handicaps, 1-10. Golf is important in your life, spend some money on your golf ball. Taylormade Penta 5 is a good choice but be sure to watch those cart paths as they tend to tear up a little quick. 35 Euro.

A more expensive choice would of course be the Pro V1, the highest priced ball on the market is not worth the bucks. But if your used to them now, theirs no need to change. 49 Euro.

11-19, You enjoy your weekend round. You practise when it suits you and that's fine, you take golf as more as a casual sport. You need a ball that suits your game. You want more distance off the tee and a medium hard core for your short game. You need, the Callaway Hex Black. Pick them up from 40 Euro.

Higher Handicaps, 20-28. Golf is a social game to be enjoyed with friends but you still love that moment when you strike that perfect tee shot. Your game needs a ball that has high spin rate from EVERYWHERE.
But price comes into it big time for you, here is the ball you need. Srixon Z series, pick them up in a dozen for 30 Euro.
