A golf ball is an extremely personal item, with a whole range of models out on the market that cover different aspects of the game to suit your style of play.
Whether you are seeking more distance or perhaps you want more control around the greens, there is a golf ball designed for your game.
Golf balls can be expensive, with a dozen of the best golf balls sometimes coming in at $45/£45+, however there are better deals available on the best value golf balls as well as the best mid price golf balls.
Yes they may not quite offer the same spin control around the greens but you don't have to pay premium prices to get solid performance and durability.
What we would say is, if you are serious about your game, then one of the best premium golf balls is probably the way to go, but if you don't want to splash out then one thing we would certainly recommend is playing the same golf ball every single round - even if it is a cheap model.
This is because all golf balls have different feels, spin characteristics and flight so using the same one every time will add consistency to your game as you'll know exactly how it will react.
