Pinnacle Golf Balls
Golf Balls - How a small round dimpled sphere has the power to alter your game. In todays game golf balls have become high-tech super-spheres that claim to do everything but hit themselves! One popular golf ball claims long distance and super feel another longer distance more spin and control and a third ultimate distance and control. Confused? Might as well choose a golf ball based on the colour of the box! But wait! Playing the right golf ball for your game WILL enhance your performance and overall enjoyment of the game. Its just a matter of cutting through the spin to find that ball.
This is partly due to the feedback from the golf ball as well as the contact from the putter. The fact is the golf ball is the only equipment that you used for every shot on your round of golf whereas you change to different type of clubs for different type of golf shots. It used to be that about a decade ago most balls fall into 2 categories. First are the ones used by the golfing professionals which have exceptional soft feel and high spin from the wound balata golf balls. These balls with high scoring spins provide these professionals with the ability to work the ball around the greens. However these balls lack driving distances and are poor in durability but these factors are not enough to affect the tour professionals as they can take the durability and the distance sacrifices for improved scoring spins.
Also playing with damaged balls will impact on your game so it is better to play an affordable ball and replace it regularly. And Finally - Golf Ball Myths More dimples result in a higher trajectory. This is not true. The optimum number of dimples on a golf ball is between 350 and 450. It is the spinning action of the golf ball along with the depth of the dimples that determines the trajectory. Golf balls travel further when they are warm. Partly true as colder temperatures will decrease a golf balls velocity more than warm temperatures. However it is the air temperature that has more impact on the balls distance than the temperature of the ball.
For the amateur golfers due to the higher spins of these wound balata golf balls we are not able to control these spins because we played with a natural hook or slice spin resulting in reduced accuracy and shorter distance. The short game advantage of the scoring spin is not enough to offset the reduction in accuracy distance and durability. Most amateurs tend to use the more durable surlyn covered 2 piece distance ball which has lower scoring spin with longer distance and is more durable. Todays latest golf balls technology has evolved into multi-layered urethane covered designs. These latest balls provide a balance of the distance of a surlyn covered golf balls with the spin control of a wound balata balls.
