What compression golf ball should I be using?
A 70 compression ball should be used by a golfer whose club head speed with their driver is 70 mph, an 80 compression ball should be used by a golfer with an 80 mph club head speed, 90 with 90 and 100 with 100. In addition, keep in mind that temperature affects golf ball compression.
How does compression affect golf balls?
The lower the compression rating, the softer the golf ball. When a golf ball is struck, it compresses a certain amount. After the golf ball compresses, it will have a spring-like effect off of the clubface. Faster swing speed, stronger players can compress the ball much more than a slower swinging player.
Do lower compression golf balls go further?
Low compression golf balls are easier to compress at impact with the driver and that means there is a greater energy released on the ball. This in turn sees the ball travel farther than golf balls with a higher compression.
What does a low compression golf ball do?
