Pick One Ball and Stick With It

Just about every golf ball on the market is decent enough for any golfer to get results with. The biggest issue has to do with the short game, and switching balls mid round. A simple “bounce” test off a smooth concrete surface will show that for a given, equal impact, there can be as much as a 10-15 percent difference in rebound off the same impact. That means, for a 30 foot putt, two different balls COULD have as much as a 4 1/2 foot difference in roll. Or for an 80 foot chip shot, a 12 foot difference in distance from the same stroke. So, choose a ball you like, at a price point you like, and you will see better chipping, more one putts and fewer three putts.
