How It Works

How It Works

There's no one-size-fits-all golf ball.

At GolfBallSelector.com we match a golf ball to the golfer's unique swing characteristics and game objectives. Our online fitting process - The Golf Ball Selector System™ - finds the optimum combination of spin rate, ball construction, cover hardness, aerodynamics and others factors to meet your individual performance objectives.

Golf balls perform differently for different golfers.

Ball speed, angle of impact, launch angle and spin rate on the ball are all fundamental mechanical factors that affect ball performance. Golf ball construction, compression and cover hardness are also critical parameters. Moreover, golfers have different demands on a ball in terms of distance, control and feel - and those demands change over time and depending on course conditions and location. In other cases, some golfers place emphasis on value for money in selecting a ball for play. In fact, the selection of the right ball requires matching the ball to your unique swing characteristics and game objectives. Learn more about our ball testing approach.

The right ball makes a difference.

Fundamentally, a golf ball performs differently depending on the type of golfer you are. For example you may be better off selecting Ball A over Ball B - if Ball A helps you control for excessive spin generated by the swing; or you may be better off selecting Ball C over Ball D, if you don't crave distance, but instead want a ball that has increased feel around the greens. Maybe you're a golfer looking for pure distance, but have low club head speed. Then, you just might be better off with Ball E. If you want to work the ball a bit more or want better stopping power hitting into greens then Ball F may be the best choice for you. Learn how you can find your perfect ball.
