    This is quite possibly the most comprehensive overview of golf balls I have ever seen. You go into so much detail! I never knew there were that many different types of balls and so many things to look for depending on your skill level and your desired way of playing. I feel so much more informed now, so thank you so much for taking the time to write this post! I know the next time I watch golf, I’ll be wondering what kind of ball they are playing with!

      Hello FatumahNoor, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      The pro uses a different brand. Because like other players, they need to find the balls which fit bets for their strength.

      But they need balls with precise dimple pattern as it improves their flight. So balls from Callaway or Bridgestone is trendy. 

      Too, they need to have low compression balls with fast swing speed.

      Such
      balls like Titleist Pro V1/1x is an example of great balls for them. I
      let the link from Amazon to these balls follow as it is accessible to shipment and useful info about it.

    I had no idea the simple-looking golf ball was so complex. I always thought that they were all made the same, just different colors and name brands. I never imagined that a golf ball would have a liquid center – who knew?

    No wonder my husband has been trying so many different brands and has his favorites. So he wasn’t paranoid. He has so many golf balls filling up cupboards in our house. I had better show him this article, especially the part where it says you shouldn’t keep a golf ball for more than two to three years.

      Yes, as your husband has for sure, find out is that the most important is to find the right golf ball home, not necessarily the best because you don´t manage to max the benefit of the best golf balls if you are not a perfect player. I don´t know your husband, but if he is not a good pro, it is more critical for him to find a golf ball that suits his strengths as a player.

    I’m not a golfer, but your posting has broadened my horizons. I like to be informed in any field. For me, this is a new domain. I had no idea that golf balls are different for men and women. But one thing I do not understand: if the golf balls are affected by moisture, why clean them by washing?

      A golf ball that is not clean enough will not keep the speed, and you are too in problem with getting the distance you could plus in it not as accurate as should be.

      So with using this method, we recommended we believe it is the best way to clean and dry the ball, included minimal the effects of the moisture. I hope it answers the question.

    I’m not a golfer, but my brother-in-law is, and he’s really into golf.
    Sometimes when I visit, he has his golf buddies over, and they talk all about golf and golf balls.
    I never knew there was a difference, but I learned a lot from them and from reading your article.
    It’s interesting to know how they’re their construction is and what makes them fly through the air!
    I never asked, but what is the cost of a dozen decent golf balls?

    I never knew that there were so many different types of golf balls! I always thought there just one standard kind to be used everywhere. I noticed that you said, “Once a player finds his/her perfect golf, he/she will tend to stick to that brand.” So I’m wondering how this plays out in high-level golf tournaments. Do golfers use their ball? Or are all the balls the same to equalize the playing field? If the balls are the same, wouldn’t it be good just to buy golf balls that the tournaments use if you plan on playing tournaments?

      Hello Kevin, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      There are, as I explain in the post, a big difference between the balls. And because of it. The most important thing for the golfers is to find the ball which is right for them with their strength and weakness in mind.

      Because in many cases, the best balls are not necessary for you as a golfer. So again, finding the right ball, not the best, is the crucial thing!

      And for that reason, the players always play with their own balls.

    Thank you for this great article. I found the history of golf balls to be very interesting. It must have been very difficult to make golf balls that way when they did not have factories like we do today. I think that you answered every possible question anyone would ever need to know about golf balls! Everything from taking care of the golf balls to what different kinds there are, to the physics of golf balls and more. Thanks for your expertise on Golf, and I hope that more people will find your article.

      Hello C, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Yes, it must have been hard work to manufacture golf balls at the start. And too, we see how incredible big development has been in the science behind the golf balls.

    I will be going to golfing in another week, and I was researching golf balls since I know nothing. It was interesting how you wrote everything because I could easily read the article, and a newbie like me was able to understand.

    I always had this question as to why golf balls had dimples, and this article explained it so well! I just hope I don’t look stupid the next week when I go to play golf.

    Hi,

    Thanks for sharing, a buying guide for the best golf balls. It is precisely what I need since my father retired a couple of years back, he became an extremely avid golfer, but sadly, I know nothing about golf. I thought some new balls would make a nice “stocking filler.” We’re in the UK, so he tends to go away for weekends in Scotland. He’s been playing a couple of years, so guess he’s a novice and needs balls appropriate for wet conditions, any ideas on what I should be looking at?

      These balls we recommended will all solve the wet condition. But it is crucial to clean the ball after the game. Here are 3 steps I recommended to do after the game.

      Step 1

      Remove off any dirt or mud pile on the ball. Wipe the ball with a robust towel. Or, rinse the ball with fast running water.

      Step 2

      Have warm water in a bucket or sink. Pour in some liquid detergent. Measure this detergent according to the number of golf balls you intend to clean. Next, submerge the golf balls in this soap solution for about two hours. Then, drain the balls and rinse them with fast running water. Use either a faucet or a hose.

      Step 3

      Use a dry absorbent towel to get your golf balls dry. Let them continue drying in the shade for several hours.

      Don´t hesitate to contact me if I can help you with anything else or if you have any questions.

    Wow, there is so much more to a golf ball than I realized. I never knew the history of them. I find it fascinating the way the leather golf balls in 1600 were made. I honestly thought that the dimples were for aesthetics and never knew that they actually have a purpose. Really informative and detailed article. Well done.
