Lots of three piece out there but imho its more about the cover than the pieces. Urethane golf balls tend to spin significantly more than surlyn golf balls whether they be two piece or three piece. That being said, heres a list to start with;

Bridgestone e6, Top flite Gamer, Nike Hyperflights, Taylormade Aeroburner Pro, and Wilson Duo spin. My favorite three piece surlyn would be the Hyperflight and the e6. The Gamer soft is very close to the e6 in performance but is significantly cheaper, and a bit firmer in feel. The e6 feels amazing and will hold most greens, the Hyperflights from Nike are a real sleeper. Long straight distance, good feel, and pretty good spin for a surlyn ball.

You can definitely put an e6 out of bounds.  I've done it plenty :-).

It doesn't spin as widely for me on mishits and flies generally with how you struck it.   At my higher handicap it's felt good throughout all my clubs and it doesn't roll off like some of the even cheaper balls.

Golfballsdirect gets them under a buck a ball which is nice.

What about srixon golf balls? My friend bought me some. Are they any good for spin etc? It's the green box they say Srixon Soft Feel Golf Balls.

I get good spin on shots into the green with the z stars, just a bit less with q stars. Either is what I buy now. Haven't played the soft feels.

Srixon Soft Feel golf balls are a medium compression distance golf ball. Not much approach or greenside spin. Def not a terrible ball, but not great either.

    • Is it in the shaft or just the paint? It looks like it's the shaft. If so, replace it.
    • A 48 Pitching wedge. If its short grass and no obstacles, I'll putt from 5 to 10 feet off the green, Depends on the rough. My wife will putt from 20 yards. She is deadly
    • He got that advice already. We can also have a discussion about practice swings. Let’s be careful about volunteering others to give free advice, too. 🙂
    • So many variables. 90%? No. I carry 4 wedges for a reason.. Different lofts, different bounces. All capable of being hit full bore ( Which I seldom do with the 60) every other one better at thick or thin lies. All working best for me being laid somewhat open, using the bounce + and being a bit aggressive. Yet today I went to an 8 iron off my back toe to run a ball 25 yards up to a small shelf the pin was on, perched between the hill and a sharp drop off to a bunker. It wasn't even a fair pin placement, much less design. The designer should be doing courses where the clowns nose lights up when you get close. The jackknob who put the pin on that sliver of ground should be tarred and feathered,
    • I’ve slowed down a bit on my practice but I’m still working on my swing. I shot 88 last week and my handicap is coming back down but I’m kind of stuck for the last month or so and not really sure what my focus should be. Looking at my video I feel I may be getting a little flippy. My biggest miss with my irons is hitting fat shots. With the driver it’s a two way miss. Contact with my driver is the best it’s ever been but I’m still prone to spraying it.
