Part 3-Golf Ball Information
In part 1, I talked about one-piece golf balls. Part 2 dealt with two-piece golf balls, three-piece golf balls, and four-piece golf balls. Now I will discuss balls that are considered low, mid, and high spin golf balls.
Low Spin Golf Balls
Low spin balls create less spin which doesn't allow them to carry as far in the air, but once they hit the fairway they roll more to compensate. The higher handicap player will treasure that there's less side spin as these balls have less propensity to hook or slice. Good tip for beginners, if your natural shot shape curves to the right or left, try a low spin ball to counteract the side spin.
Mid Spin Golf Balls
The mid spin golf ball is the one suitable for most golfers. They offer a combination of distance and feel affording nearly all golfers good distance and control. Occasionally the softness differs from brand to brand so you'll have to try some and pick the one that best suits you.
High Spin Golf Balls
These balls spin the most and they produce more backspin which keeps the ball in the air the longer and so has the longest overall carry. Although they will not roll far on the fairway, you'll get the benefit of greater control around and on the greens as they have good feel.
Part 4 will deal with a golf balls soft, mid, and firm feel. By the end of these series of posts, you will be able to answer the question, how to pick the right golf ball for me?
