Number 1 Golf Ball
This time-consuming process made this golf ball too expensive. This golf ball was the standard for over three centuries to be replaced with the Gutta Percha ball in 1848. Rev. Dr. Robert Adams discovered the Gutta Percha "Gutty" golf ball which was created using the dried sap of the Sapodialla tree and which had a rubber-like feel to be formed into ball shapes by heating and shaping while hot. It was by accident that improperly smoothed gutty balls had a truer flight than the smooth counterpart. Then came the rubber ball which changed the face of golf to the way we know it. The rubber ball was invented in 1898 and had a solid rubber core with high tension rubber thread wrapped around it to be covered with a Gutta Percha cover.
Play to your strengths Todays golf balls use sophisticated construction techniques that have a direct impact on different aspects of the game including driving distance approach control putting roll balance and cost. You should select your ball according to which one suits the most important aspect of your game - what you need most help with. Heres our summary: If you need distance (Ideal for mid to high handicappers) Too much spin will make the ball fly too high and too little will reduce carry. If you need distance and forgiveness go for a hard ball. The combined firmness of the cover and core allow the ball to travel longer distances and be very durable but be aware it wont stop as well on the green.
At the same time you are likely to hit the ball further. The price of two-piece balls tends to be less meaning that they wont take a large bite out of your budget when they end up in the lake or the rough! Multi-Layer. Typically made of three or four layers in which the core is wrapped in one or two layers the multi layer golf ball is usually preferred by Tour players for the extra control it offers. Three-piece. These have a large synthetic core a thin mantel and a cover. Sometimes tungsten weights are used in the middle of the synthetic core for optimised weight centering. Four-piece. These multi-layer golf balls have a smaller inner core surrounded by an outer core similar to the three-piece ball. This is then surrounded by a thin mantel and a cover.
Third - You can exchange with golf buddies. Why would you want to do that? Seems weird? Not at all! In fact many golfers meet up with new found golfing friends to network around the world and even at golf vacations. As part of social interaction some would exchange personalized golf balls to those they want to remain in contact with or personally like. Fourth - Leave an impression with others. Give your personal caddie an impression never to forget. You can give the personalized golf ball as a gift to someone of the opposite sex or set a tone of authority when you use them when you play with others.
