THERE ARE SEVERAL CATEGORIES of golf balls: men's, women's, yellow (and other colors), personalized, licensed and logo. Men's golf balls can be grouped in subcategories focused on performance characteristics such as distance, soft feel/low compression, tour level and more.

Women's golf balls are typically two-piece construction built for distance and control and are well suited for slower swing speeds.

Yellow and other brightly colored golf balls are easy to spot and a popular option for golfers who prefer a different or bold look. In addition, personalized, licensed and logo golf balls are three customizable options for standing out from the crowd.

Top golf ball brands include Bridgestone, Callaway, Nike, Srixon, TaylorMade, Titleist and Wilson Staff.

There are golf balls that can fit your swing speed and match your skill level, helping you minimize your weaknesses and maximize your potential. Modern golf balls, measuring 1.68 inches in diameter and weighing 1.62 ounces, can be broken into two basic groups. The first group are golf balls that produce less spin and go farther and straighter for the less-skilled golfer. The second group are golf balls that spin more for greater control, geared for the more-skilled golfer. Distance-oriented golf balls typically have a firmer feel. Spin-oriented golf balls usually have a softer feel. There are also differences in trajectory. Some balls fly higher. Some lower.
