Best Golf Watches: Quick Menu
A golf ball is just a golf ball, right? Wrong! In fact, that’s probably less true now than ever as all the main ball brands seek to cram as much all-round performance as possible into every model. All the major brands have been launching new versions of their premium models for the new season, along with a number of other newcomers and next-generation golf balls. However, before we get to the best golf balls on the market, what features should you look out for? At the top end of the market, it’s all about getting the multiple layers to work in harmony to generate the flight characteristics you want in the long game, like low spin and speed, without compromising feel and control in the short game.
On the other hand, manufacturers are always looking to cater for golfers with more moderate swing speeds through their lower compression, mid-price offerings. So, what are some of the best golf balls out there? We’ve tested the leading options currently available and these are our very top picks. All have been thoroughly reviewed by our team, which means testing on the launch monitor and over multiple rounds on the course. Rest assured, this guide is updated on a regular basis to make sure it includes the latest releases.
Before we list the models for this guide, Cyber Monday is here and there are lots of deals on equipment like this. As such, check out all of the best Cyber Monday golf deals as selected by our experts.
