There are plenty of golf balls to choose from and sometimes it can get a little confusing understanding which one is most suited to your game, so if you're a mid-handicap golfer looking for new golf balls, you've come to the right place.
If you're someone who has a handicap ranging from around 10 to 18, you want a golf ball that provides the right amount of feel around the greens, without sacrificing any distance.
So with golf courses now open once again in England, make sure your bag is armed with plenty of golf balls that are going to bring the best out of your performance.
Titleist AVX Golf Balls
The new AVX has been totally redesigned by Titleist and is perfect for golfers who want to play a high performance golf ball with the softest possible feel. The Titleist AVX is a premium performance golf ball for golfers who prioritise distance and extremely soft feel with a piercing, low ball flight. A new innovation in the AVX construction increases ball speeds to advance your game. You’ll notice more distance on all your shots, due to a larger core formulation, thinner cover and unique aerodynamic dimple design that generates a piercing, low flight. The new, thinner urethane cover system gives you more precise control on scoring shots into the green.
Mizuno RB Tour X Golf Balls
A faster tour ball with an incredible performance in the wind – due to Mizuno’s drag-reducing C-Dimple. Soft and responsive around the greens – with a 4 piece construction and a high traction urethane cover. Mid/low driver spin for flat to upward attack angles. Mizuno’s new Cone (C) Dimple is the result of 12 years of wind tunnel testing at Mizuno’s MT (Mizuno Technics) test facility. The C-Dimple creates more trigger points to keep fast-flowing air close to the ball’s surface for longer - simultaneously reducing drag, and strengthening trajectory. Under laboratory testing, a configuration of 360 Cone Dimples was discovered the most effective at producing a controllable, penetrating driver flight, and noticeable distance gains on full iron shots.
ERC Soft has completely reinvented how a distance ball performs with our new innovative Hybrid Cover. This multi-material cover creates an exceptional combination of faster ball speeds for longer distance, incredibly soft feel, and noticeably higher spin for excellent control around the green. In the ERC Soft, Callaway have designed its largest ever Graphene-infused Dual SoftFast Core. This groundbreaking technology features a larger inner core that maximizes compression energy while minimizing driver-spin and promoting high launch for long distance.
Titleist Tour Speed Golf Balls
The Titleist Tour Speed is the newest addition to the already superb range of Titleist golf balls. Featuring an entirely new thermoplastic urethane cover it is constructed with a much lower compression (around 78) which gives it an incredibly soft feel. This will also make it more suitable for players with moderate swing speeds who don’t quite swing it fast enough to get the most out of the ProV1 or Prov1x. Driver distance is on a par with all of Titleist’s premium balls but on iron shots it is actually slightly longer and can really help squeeze a little extra out of your shots to the green. Greenside control is excellent and offers a little more in the way of spin than the Tour Soft, with the softness really helping you feel distances on close range shots. If you are looking for a ball that offers as close to tour level performance, without spending premium money then the Titleist Tour Speed would be the perfect choice.
TaylorMade Tour Response Golf Balls
This 3-piece golf ball is engineered by TaylorMade to respond to your golf game. It offers a premium combination of effortless compression with advanced Tour technology for maximum game performance. The ball has an easily activated high-spring core which has an ultra-low 40 compression core, for effortless distance and sensational soft feel. Tour HFMq SPEEDMANTLE technology offers advanced ball speed performance for enhanced distance. Plus a Tour cast urethane cover provides Tour calibre spin around the greens for the ultimate in performance.
Srixon Q-STAR TOUR Golf Balls
Get the power and performance of a true Tour golf ball, but play with a softer feel at impact. This is the all-new Q-STAR TOUR, Srixon's softest ball with Tour-level performance. With the largest core in its class and FastLayer technology, Q-STAR TOUR is fast off the face and long off the tee. Its new SeRM urethane cover delivers ‘one-hop stop’ control for the ultimate combination of distance and spin. The new FastLayer Core offers distance and soft feel without compromise due to a gradual transition from soft inner core to firm outer edge. A new urethane coating with flexible molecular bonds digs deep into wedge and iron grooves for increased friction and maximum spin.
