Best ball for beginner

Recommended Posts

Currently I am hitting Nike Mojo golf balls. I do like them, I was just wondering if there might be something better for a beginner.

You can never go wrong with the Top-Flite Gamers or D2's. I love them to this day. They have a ball for every type of player too

I agree.  The Gamers are great balls, but if you're truly a beginner I'd stick to the Mojos for this season and move to the Gamers as you start to figure things out.

i used to use mojos and while they are cheap, putting feels atrocious with them. i saved strokes by gong to the e6, but you don't have to buy new balls.

i get the slightly used ones in bulk to save on shipping and you can get them for less than new mojos.

Anything you won't cry when you lose them in the woods or water.

I like 2-piece balls.. so I use that as a starting point.

Mojos are fine.. I always thought they were cool because of the name and design.. but I outgrew them fast.

I also just switched to the e6 in yellow.  I was suspect on the claims that they hit straighter but I've played a couple of rounds with them now and I definitely believe the claims.  That said if I'm playing a heavily wooded course or one with a lot of water I stick to my Titlest Tour Distance balls I got at costco for like .50cents a ball

I started with the cheapest balls I could find so I would not spend a lot of time looking for lost balls. Now I use Wilson Staff Zips, good ball I got them off ebay and switch between top flite gamers and the zips. like both of them.

Mojo's are great balls and they're very cheap.  As suggested about you could by them in bulk at a site like knetgolf.com , this way you get more for you buck and don't have to worry about losing them.  For a cheap golf ball I've found the Mojo has the best feel and damn they go far!  Nike has a good line of golf balls and you can always stay with Nike and something that is familiar or branch out to Bridgestone which has some great golf balls for players still learning the game that aren't ready for premium golf balls like ProV's.

I've been using the callaway diablo and callaway warbirds. I like them quite a bit, I think I favor the diablo a little more but there isn't that much difference, to me anyway. And they don't break the bank. I also will play a hole or two with balls I find on the course to get a feel for different brands. I found a brand new looking pro V1 by a bush the other day and man I could def. tell a difference in the "feel". Played a Nike tour one and didn't like it at all. I also bought a pack of sirixion that I like quite a bit. :-) but they were kind of pricey

That site is sick! Thanks for the link.

So what I'm hearing from everyone is that the Mojos(or something cheaper) is fine for now, but I'm going to want and upgrade as my game gets better... just like my clubs

bingo. no point in getting a pro v1 and then losing a half dozen a round. plus a lot of expensive balls tend to "help" players get better spin out of balls so they can work draws and fades. this also helps a duffers slice become a sideways rocket ship.

i always look around if the course is dead and pick up a few balls. i have some pro v1's, hex balls, etc. that i knock around, but would never buy at my current level.

You're welcome...

The site has GREAT customer service.  I play Nike One Tour golf balls still, Nike no longer makes them so I have to purchase them from sites like Knet.  The last batch of refinished Nike One's I got were not to my standard, the refinisehd cover started peeling on the golf balls.  I've never had this happen before.  I contacted Knet and within a week they sent me 3 dozen more Nike Ones free of charge (I purchased 3 dozen the first time around) to replace the ones I received that were below par.

    •  I generlly play at two clubs Bradley Park - Nice 18 hole course, well kept mature parkland i can play for £19 on a weekend or 10 holes for a tenner. Great driving range and practice area. Willow Valley - 3 courses. 9 hole, 18 hole intermediate and the championship course (home of the Yorkshire PGA champs). 9 holer is a tenner on the weekends and the inter course is £20. You just cant grumble at the value for monet you get.
    • I prefer sand that is medium I guess. I have trouble with real soft, fine sand because I am not as consistent with how far I hit behind the ball. I think soft sand is less forgiving. I work to play a sand shot similar to a pitch shot, but with lower hands as my Evolvr instructors and Erik have taught me.  My league course has medium sand on the course, but very soft sand in the practice area. My home course has medium sand but no practice area. It's odd, but I never seem to get into the bunkers at my home course. I think I just jinxed myself! 
    • Welcome @afmilboy02! Happy thanksgiving. I tweaked some of your post to make it fit our guidelines for member swings. The one thing we need you to do now is embed the videos- not attach them. In the “How To” dropdown, you’ll see an option for embedding videos.   Under the “Info” dropdown there is an option for Instructional Content.  Great stuff there as well as tips for how to have a good swing thread, including video tips.  Good luck!!!
    •   I've been Playing Golf for: years but just getting back into golf
      My current handicap index or average score is: 90s
      My typical ball flight is: None
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:  Haven't played in a season or so due to work, but getting back into it and have had nothing but issues.  Previously, I was a solid ball striker (few miss hits per round) that shot in the high 80's to low 90's a few lip outs, bad chips, and/or bad drives away from being in low 80's.  With that said, I dont know where that swing went, I literally am struggling to make solid contact with the ball with numerous issues in my swing... hip slide, over back swing, out/in path, pushes left, and fat/thin hits to name a few.  Here are a few vids (removed by moderator as they were attached not embedded)... tips, drills, and advice are welcome.   Thank you!
