Signs You Are Using The Wrong Golf Ball (Video)

Generally golfers are quite loyal creatures you know, we like to use the same type of club the same brand, the same manufacturer, and that applies to golf balls quite a lot of the time. Golfer will say, “Well I play this brand of golf ball,” “And why do you play that” “Well I always play that sort of golf ball so I know what I’m getting. I know how much it costs, I know what sort of color box it comes, and I even know where the pro keeps them in the pro shop. And I’ll just stick to the same ball all the time.” And that’s not necessarily the right thing to do, particularly if that brand of golf ball isn’t good for you. I’m not suggesting that you should swap golf balls every time you play or every round of golf or anything like that, stick to a brand and once you’ve found the right ball –.

But my question is have you found the right golf ball? And if you’ve been playing with the same golf ball for five years, you might not have acknowledged that your game has changed or the golf ball market has changed. And there might be something better out there for yourself. So speak to a PGA professional to work out what’s the best ball for yourself. But you could also look at the different aspects of your golf that maybe we could highlight where there is something that is not quite working with the combination of your swing and your golf ball. Particularly if we see things like the golf ball just simply doesn’t go far enough. If you’re playing with your mates and you feel like you’re hitting the golf ball equally as hard or equally as far as they’re doing, but then when you look up and the ball doesn’t quite get as far down the fairway we might consider that maybe your contact with the golf ball wasn’t quite right or the golf ball itself wasn’t quite right and therefore you lack distance. Other things we could consider is does the ball fly too high or does the ball fly too low. So if you’re hitting a seven nine into a par-3 the same as your mate does, and he is flying the ball really high and landing and stopping on the green and you’re flying the ball too low and it shoots off the other side, maybe you’re not getting enough spin on the golf ball and the flight isn’t going up in the air like it should do and it is not landing and stopping. There might also be a case that your golf ball flies too high so the ball might be too soft generating too much spin. It flies too high up in the air and then when it lands on the green, it stops rather than rolling out as it should do. So consider how the compression and the spin ratio of a golf ball can work well for your particular type of swing. And don’t be stuck too much with one particular brand maybe experiment a little bit and ask a PGA Pro for their advice on the best ball for your game.
