  • Q: What are some tips for selecting the correct golf ball compression?

    A: Golfers with slower swing speeds should usually select a golf ball with a low compression rating, while those with a faster swing speed should choose a ball with a higher compression rating. The lower the compression rating, the easier it is for the golf ball to compress at impact and create a spring effect to maximize distance. If the swing speed is not fast enough to match the compression rating, the distance off the tee suffers.
