Golf balls for beginners Buying Guide
There are a few things you need to take into account when purchasing golf balls. As a beginner, you want to avoid balls that have extra spin. When a player hits the Driver, the more spin on the ball to the right or to the left is going to cause a big slice or hook, which keeps you out of the fairway. When choosing a great golf ball for a beginner golfer, we want less spin to keep you in play more often.
Soft or Hard? What type of Golf balls Should You Have?
When you begin playing golf, you want the ball to fly as far as possible, so your next shot is closer to the green. A harder golf ball with a surlyn cover is going to carry farther, and often times these golf balls are considered distance balls. If your goal is longer shots, you want a surlyn cover ball.
If you want more spin, and your goal is to have the ball land on the green and “check”, or maybe you want to try and spin the ball backwards once it lands on the green, then you would want to look for balls that have more spin, and have a polyurethane cover. I would advise that if you are new to the game, don’t worry about spin nearly as much as hitting the ball straighter. You will have the rest of your life to practice your “two hop and stop” pitch shot.
Balls for a Beginner golfer
So with that being said, we wanted to give you some options in choosing a great golf ball. While we could just tell you to go out and buy the latest ProV 1x or Taylor Made’s newest ball, it really would be a disservice to you and your game. Those types of balls are made for more seasoned players that work the ball from side to side and need more control around the green. Play for a while, keep working on your game, and then you can start spending more money on golf balls. For now, lets find a great ball that will work for you.
