Nike Mojo Golf Balls Review

By Mike Camunas

This ball is really just a throwaway ball that's main concern is being the ball farthest down the fairway.

Nike's Mojo golf ball is its distance ball, using aero-efficient dimples for plenty of lift. The 432-dimple surlyn cover is a bit harder than most balls, but there is a unique softness to the ball that allows for minimal spin. Despite the ball's silliness in design and markings, it does conform with USGA and R&A rules, and each package comes with a pink or purple novelty ball as a bonus. Mojos are available in 24 packs for as low at $19.99 in 2009.


Distance, distance and more distance. The crisper shell of this ball allows the golfer to smack the ball pretty far, but that's about it. The primary job of a Mojo is being the ball farthest down the fairway. The ball trajectory can be shaped--not very well--but for the price, that's pretty good.


With this ball, there's not much control on long or short irons. The harder cover causes large bounces on the fairway, as well as the green, and fades and draws will look non-existent.

Bottom Line

Only buy this ball if you're strapped for cash. The Mojo is for beginner golfers--the ones who know their balls are headed for the woods or water and don't want to make a dent in their wallet.
