Golf Ball Comparisons for Low Handicap Players

By Steve Silverman

When you have been playing golf for more than five years and you regularly shoot in the low 80s or better, you want a golf ball that can help your game. All golfers want to hit the ball further and straighter and have it roll better on the green. However, when your game has reached a high level of accomplishment, you can find a ball that matches the skill-level you bring to the game.

TaylorMade TP5X

Featuring a 5 piece construction provides a "Tri-Fast Core" in order to provide both distance and control to shots. The soft urethane outer cover helps create more spin on wedge and short iron shots. A softer but similar model is the TP5. 

Titleist Pro V1X

The Titleist Pro V1X has improved on the dimple construction of previous balls, and combined with new aerodynamic engineering creates a ball praised for its consistent flight pattern. The dual core provides distance without sacrificing control. 

Srixon Z-Star XV

The Srixon Z-Star XV is designed for golfers with swings of 100 mph or more. Featuring a dual core, like the Titleist Pro V1X, the Z-Star XV maintains a firmer outer core that provides faster ball speeds. This ball is perfect for golfers who prefer firm feeling balls.
