While golfers fork out hundreds of dollars to find the right driver, they also might want to think about spending a bit more on the balls they use. Often it’s a tough task because there are so many different types and brands.
One awesome resource is a website called golfballs.com where golfers can find descriptions of the top balls that professionals use, such as the new Titleist Pro V1x ball.
According to the product description, the Pro V1x ball has “a multi-layer four-piece construction designed for serious golfers of all levels.”
Like the Nike Power Distance Long Golf Balls, the new Titleist balls feature an ionomer cover and a dimple pattern that enables golfers to get more distance off the tee.
The site also allows golfers to post reviews.
“A ball isn’t a ball unless it’s one of these,” wrote one golfer in regards to the Titleist Pro V1x, while another golfer claimed that he used to hook and slice “but with (the Nike Power ball) I’m always deep down the centre even against the wind!”
In addition to finding the right ball suited to their game, golfers can find clubs, bags, apparel, shoes and accessories on golfballs.com, which was started in 1995 as a resource to sell used golf balls.
Another feature allows viewers to sort products by popularity, average review, price and brand to make comparison a breeze.
For example, the Callaway Golf Big Bertha 454 Driver comes in as the top-reviewed driver with several golfers extolling the virtues of the club.
So, before heading out to your local golf store to peruse the new and old gear on the racks, consider surfing the web to familiarize yourself with your options.
