The 5 Types Of Golf Ball Construction!

It may come as a surprise to hear, but one of the most underrated influences on our golfing performance is the type of golf balls that we play with. Playing with the wrong kind of golf balls can have a devastating impact on your potential distance and shot control.

Golf ball manufacturers make their living off of this and understand that every golfer possesses their own strengths, abilities and skills levels, and thus require a different type of golf ball construction to be able to maximize their scoring potential out on the golf course.

There are now 5 types of golf ball construction currently available, that i have listed below, and each one of them has been designed specifically for a particular style of play and individual personal performance requirements. So if you are looking for ways to improve your golfing performance and overall enjoyment of the game, you may want to learn more about the different type of golf ball constructions below.

Find out how each of their individual characteristics can have a significant impact on your playing ability. Once you have found the best golf balls for your game, you can then start to reap the benefits of more distance, accuracy and shot making control, not to mention shooting lower scores!

One piece golf balls are the simpliest construction designed for beginners and are mainly associated with the driving range. They are the least expensive to produce and normally made up of either a solid sphere of surlyn with dimples moulded in or a simple rubber core and a hard plastic dimpled outer casing.

They have a much lower compression than any other type of ball and consequently provide much less distance. This makes the ideal for the driving range or to put in your practice bag, but would not really be recommended for actual use on the golf course, as they provide no real benefits to any particular style of play.

Two piece golf balls are used by the majority of everyday golfers because they are generally a more affordable option that deliver both maximum distance due to their lower spinning nature, and durability. The basic construction is made up of a solid (usually hard) plastic sphere which is surrounded by an ionoic or urethane cover.

By changing the size and compression of the balls core, and softness of the cover, enigneers can alter their performance, thus offering models that can meet the needs of a large array of golfing styles. Although forgiving, 2 piece balls are generally not preferred by the more accomplished player because they offer less feel and control.

Three Piece Construction Golf Balls

Three piece golf balls are centered around a solid rubber core, and surrounded by a second layer which is often made up of a liquid or very pliable rubber, with the final layer being a thin, soft urethane cover. The idea behind this additional second layer and softer cover is to provide golfers with the potential for extra spin and control.

Although it sounds appealing to have more control over your ball flight and be able to generate extra spin on your approach shots, these 3 piece balls are not as forgiving and will not produce as much distance as a 2 piece ball, and due to the extra spin they also tend to exagerate any slicing or hooking issues you may have.

Four Piece Construction Golf Balls

The core of the 4 piece ball is made from a soft rubber, designed to offer explosive distance, the inner layer helps to transfer energy to the core. The extra inner layer is designed to increase driving distance without reducing spin and control on the mid irons and around the green, and the final layer is a soft urethane cover for extra feel.

Four piece balls are specifically designed to meet the needs of the serious golfer, who has full control over his swing and ball flight. 4 piece golf balls offer the maximum distance and compression of a 2 piece ball, with the soft feel and control of a 3 piece ball and are now the preferred choice of the majority of Touring Pro's.

Among the highest priced golf balls, the new 5 piece ball design is a relatively new concept to the golf ball world and is built up of layers that are designed to optimize the outcome of the five key shot categories that highly skilled golfers require, including driving, long irons, mid irons, short irons and short wedge shots.

The 5 key layers include a low compression core, promoting high launch and low spin off the driver, a soft fast inner mantle to optimize long iron shots, a semi-firm and fast middle mantle to create perfect conditions for mid irons, a firm fast outer mantle for optimum spin on short irons and a soft urethne cover for extra feel.
