With less than two weeks to go until golf courses reopen, you might be getting a little excited about the idea of standing on that first tee, praying you stripe one down the middle.
Your clubs and shoes are clean and your clothes are ready, but you're suddenly realising you've only got one sleeve of balls left in the bag and given that you haven't played golf for a few months, there's every chance you'll lose all of them on the first hole.
So here are some of our favourite value-for-money golf balls currently on the market that you might want to add to your golf bag before March 29.
BRIDGESTONE TOUR B X
A Tour-proven golf ball that you can now get for under £35! Bridgestone have reinvented the Tour B XS to feature new REACTIV cover technology. Until now you had to choose more distance or more spin. With REACTIV you can now get more distance and more spin out of the same golf ball. Designed to fit golfers with tour fast swing speeds of over 105mph, the new Tour B X has higher ball speed for maximum distance while having 'hit and sit' performance on approach shots.
The Srixon AD333 has been one of the most popular golf balls for amateurs for a very long time! The Srixon AD333 golf ball is now in its 8th generation. It's is a high-performance, 2-piece golf ball that delivers an exceptional balance of distance, soft feel and greenside control. Engineered for golfers who demand total performance in a more durable offering, the new AD333 utilises similar technology to Srixons' Tour-proven Z-Star series golf balls in an ionomer cover design. Unlike many competitor ionomer cover balls that offer golfers long distance on full shots but only deliver marginal performance around the green, the new AD333 distinguishes itself with excellent greenside control, enabling golfers to execute approach shots more effectively, with more confidence, to achieve better results.
The Callaway Supersoft golf ball delivers Exceptional Distance, Spin, Feel & Control and the new hybrid cover features an innovative PARALOID™ Impact Modifier made by DOW Chemical.
