Ballnamic Golf Ball Fitting
Let's find the perfect ball on a budget for me.
One of my questions is, what is the proper golf ball for me to play?
For a long time, I subscribed to the fact that I sucked at golf, and in the end, it really didn’t matter what golf ball I played.
Then I went through a stage where I thought, “If you want to be better at golf, play a better ball as well.” And started playing with some of the top-tier golf balls, which hurts the wallet. I play a lot of golf, but I am not good at golf, and thus lose balls which when playing higher-end balls is not enjoyable. Launching two Titelest AVX golf balls into the drink and reminding yourself that it just cost you $10 is not a great way to optimize your play.
Over the last year, I settled into the strategy of playing lower-end balls during the winter and shifting to a better-quality ball as the weather improved. Until one day, I found a random Cut brand ball and played out of my mind. I’ve stuck with that brand after reading about them and finding that the balls aren’t garbage.
I decided to pay the $39.99 and leverage the Ballnamic application to determine the proper golf ball for me to play. I did a test run-through on higher-end balls (AVX won out there) and decided to record a run-through looking for a budget ball.
I will do another one with specific swing data in another week or two.
