If you need spin (Ideal for better players) A spin ball is constructed with a cover that generates more spin when struck with a lofted club. This ball is better suited to play draw and fade shots around obstacles and will stop well on the green. However it will also be easier to slice or hook shots. If you are looking for ultimate control - distance and spin combined (Ideal for very serious players) A control golf ball has the characteristics of a distance ball with the ability to stop quickly on the green with allegedly less risk of hooking or slicing the golf ball than a pure spin ball.

This time consuming process ensured the price was out of reach of the masses often selling for more than the price of a club. Guttie - Rev Dr Robert Adams Paterson created the first golf balls made from Gutta-percha in 1848. The ball was created from the dried sap of the tropical sapodilla tree which was heated up and formed into ball shapes. The improved performance and cheaper costs of the Guttie contributed greatly to the expansion of the game. Hand Hammered Guttie - It was also discovered that improperly smoothed balls often had a truer flight than the smoother versions and the Hand Hammered Guttie Ball with an even pattern hammered on by hand was born.
By 1890 golf balls were formed in iron moulds and the Bramble design with raised spherical bumps resembling a raspberry became the most popular ball of the Guttie era. Rubber - The advent of the rubber ball changed the face of golf as we know it. Invented by Coburn Haskell in 1898 it featured a solid rubber core wrapped in rubber thread. Early Gutta-percha covers soon gave way to the Balata cover that was introduced in the early 1900s. Although they looked like Gutties the average golfer could gain an extra 20 yards off the tee. So the guttie gave way to the aerodynamically superior dimple pattern first used in 1908 and still being used today.
