The Best Golf Balls To Keep You Under Par & On The Green

Like the game itself, golf balls have come a long way.

You’d never think that something that has never changed shape, could actually be susceptible to so much innovation. Over the years, centuries even, the golf ball has had a few iterations. We’ve had wooden balls, leather balls wrapped in cow hair, balls wrapped in feathers and straw, but it wasn’t until ol’ Coburn Haskell put a rubber thread into a ball and bounced it that the modern version of the golf ball was born.

You can break them down into three types, each serving a unique function for any situation you might face on the fairway and are constructed differently for their desired performance.

First, you’ve got your distance golf balls that have larger cores, which is thought of as the engine of the ball, and are typically used on that all-important first shot to boost yardage. Spin control golf balls are designed to bring the ball to a halt on the green with better backspin when it lands and also to prevent it from spiralling out of control or being carried off by the wind while in flight.

Finally, the tour performance golf balls provide the best of both worlds and are used by the pro’s on the major tours, and are constructed with multiple layers. With so much choice comes an even greater number of decisions – and the importance placed on them – so to make the task slightly easier we’ve rounded up some of the best golf balls currently available from the very best golfing brands on the planet. 

While we’ve picked out what we believe to be stand out models, we understand every golfer is different, so you can click through to each retailer’s website to view their full collection.
