Nike Mojo golf balls were a mainstay among recreational golfers from the time they were released in 2003 until they were discontinued in 2016 when Nike exited the hard-goods side of the golf business.

Mojos were designed for added distance on a budget. At around a buck a ball, many players who had bigger concerns than workability and spinning it back on a par-3 gravitated towards the Mojo.

Review of Nike Mojo Golf Balls

Nike Mojo golf balls were tailored toward weekend, fun-driven golfers, not aspiring pros. The Mojo line, thanks to its low-compression core, was designed to add distance to your golf swing while featuring a soft feel.

Mojo’s multilayer construction featured a polybutadiene core and a urethane cover. The balls were known both for their distance and durability.

The Mojo line was available in a plethora of colors, including white, yellow, orange, and blue.

Perks

Nike Mojo golf balls were not only durable and soft in feel, but they also aided in distance and provided solid trajectory. As with most Nike golf products, the balls came in a sleek, visually pleasing case.

Sacrifices

Nike Mojo golf balls were not designed for more skilled golfers, but rather for average or mediocre golfers who were not so adept at aiming, gauging distance, and adding spin. Mojo balls are also not ideal for those with high-speed swings.

The Mojo was designed for the recreational golfer who was more concerned with budget than performance. With that in mind, players who desire workability, precise spin, and touch around the greens should consider more premium offerings.

Where to Buy Nike Mojo Now?

Since Nike exited the hard-goods side of golf in 2016, the Mojo balls have evaporated from retail stores. Today, the only place to find Nike Mojo golf balls is on secondary markets such as eBay.

You may also be able to find recycled Mojo balls at retail stores including Wal Mart, or sites like lostgolfballs.com or foundgolfballs.com.

Bottom Line

Weekend golfers searching for a durable golf ball flocked to the Nike Mojo. But if you harbor dreams of toppling Tiger on the PGA Tour, you might want to purchase a more specialized ball.
