“Ball hawking,” or looking for lost balls and using them as your own will save you money, but it won’t help your game. Different balls are suited for different styles of play. Don’t settle for just any ball unless you are willing to settle for just any score.
Compression has to do with how much the ball compresses (it actually distorts and spreads across the clubface) when it is hit. Golfers with high swing speeds compress the ball more than those with slower speeds.
These are all players likely to have swing speeds under 80 mph. Low-compression golf balls will greatly improve the ability of these players to hit the ball greater distances.
More experienced players with greater swing speeds will want a high compression golf ball, which gives the ball more spin. Spin gives an experienced player more control, especially on the green.
4. Hit straighter with a self-correcting ball
If you’ve ever dreamed of a miracle ball that could keep your ball going on the straight and narrow; dream no more. Though not without controversy, there is a ball designed to help golfers hit the ball straighter every time—the Polara Ultimate Self-Correcting ball. It’s not approved for USGA play, but many amateur players, especially those new to the sport, say it allows them to spend more time actually playing instead of spending most of their time searching for balls lost in the woods.
There are other factors that affect the play of a ball. Dimple patterns affect flight and how well a ball sticks to the green. Different manufacturers create different patterns to achieve a variety of results.
Temperature can also affect ball performance. The materials used to make golf balls are more flexible in warmer temperatures. This means they will distort more upon impact and fly higher and farther.
When performance is not an issue, a lot of fun can be had with a golf ball. Personalize them for bachelor/ bachelorette parties or fundraising tournaments. Or slip an exploding or non-puttable ball into the mix and see what happens.
