|While having a great logo on your golf ball
can be an attention calling status symbol
in the eyes of other players, golf balls
are about more than just appearance. Having
the right golf ball can dramatically help
your game. Indeed, for the golf professional,
choosing the golf ball is as important as
choosing the right club because golf ball
designs provide different playing characteristics.
When choosing golf balls, here
are some tips:
- design - golf balls have characteristics
that can complement a player's ability and
shortcomings. If you need distance but are
willing to give up a ball's "stickiness"
on the green, buy one designed for speed.
If your shots are hooking, slicing, or climbing
too much, a ball designed to reduce spin
will help. If, on the other hand, distance
isn't a problem and spin is what you want
in order to get height so that you can "drop
the ball on the green," choose a ball
that maximizes spin.
- durability - once the cover of a golf ball
is nicked or cut, it looses its aerodynamic
characteristics; thus, a ball that can endure
repeated hits of the club will lead to a
better game. Surlyn is the material used
in most balls and should be the standard
by which you compare other materials.
- visibility & appearance - although golf
balls traditionally are white for playing
and green, yellow, or orange for practice,
there is a rainbow of colors available. Fluorescent
colors have the advantage of being more easily
located when the ball strays off the fairway.
However, avoid them unless you are running
a miniature golf course, they carry a large
logo, or you want people to think you stole
them from the practice bucket. We suggest
you stick with white for good visibility
and professional appearance.
