I think a persons golf ball choice goes hand in hand with What is their individual goal! Meaning !
Do they just want to hit the ball farther, or do they want to score better or do they just want the ball to feel softer, etc. I think that most players probably do not play the ball that is going to help them score better. They just play a ball because of brand loyalty, or some other reason they may or may not help their game the most ! It’s personal !
