Visit any sports store and you would find three basic types of golf balls. As an amateur, you can simply observe their make and analyze as to how a golfer can use them to enhance his or her total score.
Three or Four Piece Golf Balls
Professional golfers having a large swing related speed require 4 piece balls that meet the requirements with a special dual core design. The two piece core is surrounded by a dimpled cover and a thin layer of urethane and mantle. The urethane based cover, along with other parts, offers the stop and drop action which one can observe on weekend broadcasts.
Hybrid piece Golf balls
These have solid core, surrounded by a layer of mantle. This two piece assembly is thereafter surrounded by urethane rubber cover or plastic cover. These balls contain the combined characteristics of two piece model, having spin control and performance of a three piece construction.
Engineers are now adjusting the thin layer and core, creating a
Two Piece Golf Balls
This makes up the market majority amongst all the major manufacturers. It features a solid, large rubber core surrounded by a urethane or plastic cover.
By changing the size of the core, golf ball engineers can alter the performance of the finished ball, the softness of the cover and the compression of the core. Two piece balls typically are the distance balls or the game improvement balls. When struck by the club face, the large core offers a lot of velocity.
Typically, these balls are lower spinning, meaning that the hook spin or the undesirable slice would not be as pronounced and the ball would fly straighter. The lower 3 piece ball compression models perform well for women, men and children having slower swing speeds.
