Which Golf ball is right for you?
99% of the time you will choose between a Urethane and a Lonomer golf ball, but what are they?
Urethane golf balls reform and reshape better under heat than a Lonomer golf ball, they have a toughness and hardness that allows them to be crafted for a softer feel around the greens.
Urethane covered golf balls are Titleist Pro V1, Bridgestone Speed and Softand Nike RZN Black. Titleist Pro V1 and Bridgestone Speed golf balls are available in the shop at £45 per Dozen balls.
Alternatively, Lonomer Golf balls do not maintain their strength when they are shaped and are subsequently less durable. These golf balls tend to be a little firmer but still offer some softness for around the green. Lonomer Golf balls are Bridgestone e6 and the more well known Srixon AD333. Bridgestone e6 are available in the shop at £25.
Golf Digest found there was a 6 yard difference off the tee between the Lonomer and Urethane balls.
