Best Ball for Mid, Mid-High Handicappers

123 posts in this topic

This has probably been discussed....I tried searching a few different times, with no luck.

What do you think is a good ball - performance and price - for a 15 Handicapper?

I'm not a long ball hitter and would like distance and some feel around the greens?

Best 3 piece ball that doesn't cost $45???

Many questions, look forward to your opinons!

Thanks!!

Bridgestone e6+

Srixon TriSpeed

Srixon Soft Feel (2-piece ball)

Nike Power Distrance Soft (2-piece ball)


All of these are supposed to help with distance, while keeping feel around the greens.

I've played with all but the TriSpeed so far, and I would say the Bridgestones are my favorite, then the Srixon Soft Feel, then the Nikes.

A friend of mine uses Strata - affordable, don't remember the price...3-piece ball.

Any thoughts on that one?

I appreciate everyone's thoughts!

Have a good day!

On a good day, I'll play to an upper teen handicap, and I like to play Titleist NXT Tours. I think the MSRP is somewhere around $30, but I bought 3 doz. recycled ones for $17 and so far they're fine.

Best $20/dozen golf balls hands down.
The lettering is ugly as sin but the ball is great in terms of performance - add in the price and it is fantastic.

In the last two days I picked up the Nike Power Distance Soft and Srixon AD333, both very good 2-piece IMHO and priced down to $12 and $12.5 respectfully. I lose about a ball per round plus I supply my son so I look for value.

I tried a few balls and was impressed by the Srixon "soft feel".

The owner of my local golf shop was raving about them and convinced me to try them. Great durability, good feel and decent distance. $20 and it came with a free Srixon Towel.

To be fair I haven't tried the "gamer" yet but I have heard good things about that ball too.

The callaway hx balls at walmart are good, they're about $20 a dozen, I even saw refubished ones on the walmart website for $18.88 for 30. And for pure value the intech beta ti balls are $10 for 24 brand new and they perform much better than you'd think for such an inexpensive ball. Theyre pretty much what i use most of the time as I'll still lose a few balls and losing a 45-50 cent ball doesnt feel as bad as losing a more expensive ball.

Best 3 piece ball for the price is easily the Top Flite Gamer-normally $20 for 12, right now $35 for 24 at Golf Galaxy.

I'm starting to think more about what golf ball I want to use. Think I'm going to get a few different mixed bags of use balls from ebay (Nikes, Titleist, Srixon, Bridgestone etc) and see from there which I like the best then move on to new balls when I make my choice.

    • I am with @DaveP043  Just buy the damned tees. or as  Bernie says.."enough of the damned emails".  OTOH, nothing wrong with a bit of lively discussion supported by factual information.
    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
