Speaking of golf, do you know what is the best ball for you based on your current level of play? Some people use whatever they pull off the shelf that is on sale. Others use balls that the great championship golfers use. When deciding the correct type of ball, you have to ask yourself “will this ball improve my golf game?”

Here’s some tips on how to choose the right ball for your level of play:

The Beginner Golfer
If you are just starting to play or are an inconsistent player you fall into this category. Approximately 25% of recreational golfers fall in this group. It means that your handicap is above 25 and your score is usually 105 or even greater for 18 holes.

You should use a lower spinning, 2-piece golf ball. If a lot of ball speed is generated after hitting the ball hard, go for a low spin 2-piece ball. If you have a slow swing speed, choose the softer compression 2 piece balls. Read the package when buying golf balls. Look for phrases such as “low spin”, “low initial driver spin”, “low spin distance ball”, or “long and soft”.

The Intermediate Golfer
You fall into this category if you experience sporadic “big numbers”. Your scores typically range from the high 80’s to the mid 90’s and you want to be more consistent and shoot in the 80’s and start to move towards the 70’s.

If you hit the ball fairly straight or have a predictable shot pattern, you should use a medium spin 2- or 3-piece ball. If your shot pattern is unpredictable, continue using a lower spinning 2-piece ball.

The Skilled Golfer 

You have control of your swing and hit the ball with authority and consistency. Your score is in the 70’s and low 80’s and your handicap is less than 12.

Your best option is a ball that is long off the tee but offers the feel you want for the shots around the green and putting. You should only use a 3-piece performance ball.
