golf-guideAre All Golf Balls the Same?

According to the USGA, the weight of the golf ball can not be greater than 1.62 ounces and the diameter of the ball shall not be less than 1.68 inches. The balls initial velocity cannot be greater than 250 feet per second and the ball can not go on an average, further than 280 yards carry and roll.

So you say, how can there be a difference? Golf balls vary in construction; as seen below, there are two piece, wound and multi layered balls. Ball construction is no longer synonymous with performance. Consisting of a large core and a thin cover,two-pieceballs are traditionally categorized as distance balls.Wound, three piece balls are characterized by the middle layer of material that is squeezed between the core and the cover.

This middle layer is rubber thread (windings)stretched up to 10 times its original length. This process is designed to produce softer feel and increased spin. Multi layer balls are designed to provide the ultimate fit for every type of shot. The core is designed for driver distance, mid layers for full iron shots and the cover for feel and spin in half shots, chips and putts.

Golf ballsvary in hardness: the harder a golf balls core, the further the ball goes. This is a result of less deformation of the ball at impact, therefore maximizing the energy transfer at impact and producing a higher initial velocity. The hardness also gives the ball additional roll, this reduces the amount of spin you can put on the ball to “stick it” by the pin.

Compression – what is the difference between 90 and 100? 90 compression balls feel softer than 100′s, though the actual difference in distance is minimal. Golfers with a moderate swing speed or those playing in a cooler climate may prefer playing a lower compression ball for a softer feel.

Dimple pattern – the dimple pattern on a golf ball does not effect the spin, it creates the aerodynamic lift that allows a spinning ball to remain in the air longer. Varying the dimple size also affects the aerodynamics of a ball. By matching the dimple pattern and the construction of a ball, manufacturers can optimize the resulting trajectory for both distance and control.
