It is important to remember that the various types of golf balls are not all the same. They each have their own characteristics that will affect your game. To be homologated, the ball must not weigh more than 45.93g, and its diameter must be at least 42.67mm.
Why are there dimples on Golf Balls?
All golf balls have dimples on their outer layer. They help to improve the ball’s range so that it travels further
through the air. Today’s golf balls have between 350 and 500 pimples, and their number impacts the way the ball behaves.
– The more dimples there is, the further the ball travels. But effects such as spin (the movement from the front to the rear that slows the ball down when it touches the ground)
will be reduced.
– The fewer dimples there is, the greater the effects, but the shorter the distance.
Golf balls are often sold according to the number of their component parts. There are three types of balls:
– Two-part: These are the most affordable balls. They are long-lasting and cover long distances. They are better suited to
– Three-part: Slightly more expensive than two-part balls. The three-part variants are preferred by regular players because they offer a better feel and greater precision in long shots.
– Four-part: These are the most expensive and complete golf balls. They guarantee a perfect touch, distance and control at the moment of the impact. They enhance the
effects given to the ball when striking it and reduce the distance covered by the ball between the contact with the green and the hole.
