Part 2-Which Golf Ball is Right for Me

Part 2-Golf Ball Information
Part 1 dealt with the characteristics of one-piece golf balls. In part 2, I will focus on two, three, and four-piece golf balls.

Two-Piece Golf Balls

Two-piece golf balls have got a solid core confined within a cover, which is made of a cut proof material, making them really durable. These types of golf balls are the ones used by the majority of beginner, weekend, and casual golfers because they generate maximum distance. The reason why is because of the firm feel and low spin rate that these balls produce. This causes the ball to roll farther down the fairway. The drawback can be that you do not have the same control as a softer ball.

Three-Piece Golf Balls

These types of golf balls come with a solid or a liquid core, which is encircled by an outer core and wrapped with an outer cover. This is the type of ball that is favored by better golfers. Good players capture the most out of these balls because they have more spin and they have a much softer feel than a two-piece ball. These features allow for more control over your ball flight and trajectory, and they have more spin, which allows better control around the greens. However, the price for three-piece golf balls are much more than for one and two-piece balls.

Four-Piece Golf Balls

With golf ball engineering advancing at a rapid pace, the most recent improvement is the four-piece ball. These balls merge the features of good distance, spin, and feel ball. They're typically marketed towards the more skilled golfer, such as those on Tour. Each of the 4 layers helps the ball to execute to the maximum for distance, spin, and feel. You get great distance with the driver, a great deal of spin with your mid-irons, plenty of control with your wedges, and great feel with your putter. Again, these are like three-piece balls, they are much more expensive.

Part 3 will deal with low, mid, and high spin golf balls. By the end of these series of posts, you will be able to answer the question, 'which golf ball is right for me?'
