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. However, if you use a ball that’s too soft, it can be less accurate. The key is to find the right golf ball with the right compression for your swing speed. That’s why we purchased many

3 Wood vs 3 Hybrid: Differences, Pros, Cons

A 3 wood is meant for distance, while a 3 hybrid is meant for accuracy. The longer shaft and lower loft of a 3 wood produce a low penetrating ball flight, perfect for those wanting extra yards. The shorter shafts and larger heads of a 3 hybrid produce easy launch, perfect for those who struggle to hit long irons accurately. High handicappers may struggle to hit a 3 wood, but most will be able to use a 3 hybrid. Remember: Using the wrong club could mean you never reach your potential. And as I’ve explained to hundreds of students, knowing
