Learn the Basics of Golf Ball Comparison

With golf ball comparison there is only so much you can learn from reading about and making comparisons with different models and brands of golf balls online. To best compare and determine which golf ball is the right pick for you, try out as many different options as you can. Buy sleeves of three instead of whole dozens at first while you are testing and comparing various golf balls. Play a round or two with each ‘contender’ until you have decided which golf balls provides you with the correct performance characteristics. You might be surprised at how easy it is to tell when you have found just the right ball.

The nice thing about purchasing golf balls, as opposed to a set of golf clubs, is that you don’t have to invest hundreds of dollars to put them into use in your game. If you settle on a specific golf ball, only to later decide that it isn’t quite right for your game, you can always make a switch the next time you need to buy a box. Also, you can always compare and test out golf balls that you find on the course to see if they might work for your game. You never know, the ball you find deep in the woods while looking for your lost drive might be the perfect model to enhance your game!
