Ladies Ball - have you tried one

Recommended Posts

kregan    7

My son (9) found a Srixon lady ball and was open minded enough to use it to get a bit more distance because it is softer. He liked it so much he asked me to buy him a dozen so I did.

So last week I found one in my golf bag and decided to give it a try... WOW!  It was like hitting butter!  and the the feel off the putter was also really nice.  I was hitting some very nice driver shots right down the middle but couldn't tell if it was the ball or just some good swings?  Iron shots felt super smooth, distance was the same as the NXT tour ball.

An added bonus is not having to worry about guys picking up my ball!  I was thinking if I played a pink one guys would run away from it!

So have you tried one?

I've used them in the past (the Precept Lady, which they eventually rebranded as the Laddie so guys didn't have to feel less macho or something) when it was cold. They're often a very good ball for the mid to high handicappers, and usually not too expensive, either.

My daughter wanted me to try one of her "lucky" pink balls, She bugged me for a few rounds, so I finally went ahead and tried one for a few holes. Not a bad ball. Did get a little more distance from them. Iron shots had an odd feeling to them, but I got used to it after a few shots. I have seen more than one player using the Callaway Solaire balls on the course.

Are the solair balls the ones that look kinda pearl like?

Bubba uses a pink driver... why not a pink ball!  LOL

They do have a bit a pearlized sheen to them. Not very noticeable unless you pick them up. there are some decent pics of them on Callaways site:

A guy I used to work with (who is a much better golfer than myself) played the Precept exclusively.  I gave them a shot and also tried a Nike PD women's ball I found one time.  Both reminded me a lot of the Nike PD Soft, which I used to play before switching to the NXT Tour.  Some of the women's balls are really solid and less expensive.  I am a much bigger fan of the NXT Tour though.

"Pure White or High Visibility Pink. Both utilize a luminous finish that will add a distinctive flair to any woman’s game."

Hell... I need a little flair in my game to!  LOL

I was actually just considering this recently as my game is in the toilet. I'll do anything right now to stop stinking up the course. I remember reading, perhaps here about Precept. I probably don't feel to guilty playing the balls, but I feel strange buying them. Maybe I'll have my daughter go into Golf Galaxy and buy them for me :) It would kind of feel the same as buying pantyhose or tampons.

Womens golf balls just won't work unless you properly accessorize the rest of your attire.

I have played with women's balls (that just does not sound right) in the winter. CNC is right - they're like butter. When hit well with my forged MB irons, it feels like hitting a marshmallow.

A few friends and I stash these away when we find them, and pass em off to whoever asks for a ball to reload off the tee, or after a dunk. We call em "bitch balls".

I've played a few, and the precept, and srixons I've hit seemed like decent balls.

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
