Golf Ball Compression Chart: Top Ball Ratings By Swing Speed

Low-compression golf balls (30-60) can help high handicappers, beginners, or seniors with slow swing speeds get more distance. On the other hand, a higher compression golf ball (80-120) will work best for low handicappers with faster swing speeds. If you use a ball that’s too hard for your swing speed, it won’t compress or “bounce” off your club. Then, you won’t achieve optimal distance.

In this article, I will cover a few tips to help you if you have contact issues and are topping the golf ball. I will give three drills I use with my students to improve ball contact.

What Size Golf Clubs Do I Need? Complete Guide + Charts

The standard-sized golf clubs are made for men 5’9″ to 6’0″ tall. If you’re taller than 6″, you’ll need clubs that are 0.5-2″ longer. If you’re shorter than 5’9″, you need clubs that are 0.5-2″ shorter than the standard length.
