Golf balls are on the front lines of the ethical and economic equipment conundrum. Some people that golf fee that having the right golf ball can truly improve their game and they are right. The more you pay for your golf balls, the more performance you can potentially see because multilayer balls with urethane covers are usually better and perform at a high level. This doesn’t mean that if you get the right golf balls your game will go to the pro level. It’s an edge and if you are already a good golfer, having good golf balls might get you those few extra yards.
When choosing your golf balls, there are plenty of options to filter through. There are one layer up to at least 5 layers. The more layers you’re dealing with, the more performance and spin separation you’re going to see. You’ve got low spin, mid spin and high spin golf balls with different levels of compression. Needless to say, it can be quite the task.
With that said, we wanted to share some of our favorite golf balls. All of the following golf balls are highly rated and an affordable choice for those of you that aren’t sure of what direction to go in. With a description of the golf ball and list of features, you should have a pretty good idea of some good golf balls to choose from.
