Here’s a fact for you…

We have lots of different golf balls available in the pro shop, from plain white ones to bright colourful ones.

That's why can understand if you’re overwhelmed by choice when picking out which one to play with.

You’ll be forgiven if you don’t know much about golf balls and they all look very similar to you. But the truth is different brands have multiple ball products that all serve different purposes, each with a certain kind of golfer in mind. Finding the right golf ball is all about what feels good for you, and what gives you the confidence to commit to your shot.

Today we want to outline three different ways you may want to go about buying new golf balls. Based on your ability, based on price, and based on colour and visual tech.

  

Golfing Ability

When we discuss ability, it’s hard not to get grouped into one of two camps:

Are you a good golfer or a bad golfer?

The fact is we all want to improve, so we’re giving two recommendations based on handicap to give you an understanding of which ball will be most appropriate to your game.
  

Single-Figure Golfer

If you’re a single-figure handicap player, you’ll want to get the most out of your equipment. Being a consistent ball-striker, you’ll want to play with a low spin golf ball to give you the most distance on your drives.
