I am a total newbie to golf and so far have just been using what balls I can scrounge. I've heard, though, that it's better to stick to one ball to get a feel for how it plays consistently.
I have a neighbor who puts in an order at lostgolfballs.com each year and I'm thinking that I may tag on to his order and get some Sixron Soft feels, but am looking for something cheap in the mean time. Right now Golf Galaxy has a few on sale, and I'm wondering if it makes a bit of difference for an absolute beginner which I get.
The cheapest they have are Top Flight XL, but they also have deal on Slazengers (Distance, Distance Straight, Distance Extreme, and Distance Feel). Is there any significant reason I should spend a bit more on the Slazengers, or should I lose the cheapest ball possible for now?
I also had a question on practice balls. Are the plastic ones ok, or are the foam ones better? I want to have something to whack around the yard.
