you’re serious about adding more distance and
accuracy, then the following personal message from
a Golf Ball Expert is must-read material…
Golf Ball Engineer
Director of Swing Instruction, Instant Golf®
you confused by the vast array of golf balls
don't blame you a bit.
you read the magazines or tune into the weekend golf broadcasts,
it seems every few months there is the newest and greatest
golf ball coming out onto the market. Every company seems
to have the Best Golf Ball!
to the advertising, this new "breakthrough ball" or
family of balls will have you hitting the longest, straightest
shots, and stopping the ball on a dime right by
may leave you wondering:
there really a difference between
golf balls or are they all the same?
is the longest ball I
expensive balls better than cheap balls? What's the difference
between 2, 3, and 4 piece balls?
you see that golf ball review and brand
comparison in that golf magazine. Is that true?
a good golf ball for seniors?
It's a jungle out
there with all those different constructions, cover materials,
mantle layers, mind boggling dimple patterns, etc... and
the well intended golfer can easily get confused.
And what about
those confusing golf ball ratings, reviews, or comparisons you
see from time to time in the magazines or on the internet?
a US Patent Award winning golf ball engineer,
I've worked knee deep in golf ball technology for years, developing
new ball designs, and then matching the finished product to
the correct recreational and professional golfers based
on their personal needs and equipment parameters.
experience led to an expert knowledge of ball components, how
they affect overall ball performance, and most importantly,
how to match the best golf ball to every type
of players' game for more distance and accuracy.
fact, I even witnessed a major championship winner add
~20 yards to his drives after we matched the correct
ball to his equipment and launch conditions. Imagine that...
at the highest level of the sport taking his game up a notch
with the right information.
after personally working with over a thousand golfers over
the past 19 years, from touring professionals to absolute
beginners, I have concluded that:
Average Golfer Swings their Driver at ~90 mph.
the average golfer?
you if you're ~60 years old, have a little pot belly, maybe
some arthritis in the knee, love the game, want to beat your
buddies, and are about to start playing more now that you
you may be 14 or 87, but you get the idea. The "average
Joe" can swing that big driver club head at that speed.
That's a fact.
what's so great about 90 mph club head speed?
mph is enough club head speed to launch the ball 250 yards or
the average golfer can't reach or surpass that driver distance
because they don't understand (through no fault of their
own) my 3 step formula for maximum distance.
Maximum Compression of the Golf Ball to take advantage of all the
spring effect of today's driver faces. (they are literally like a trampoline)!
The golf ball must be launched at the Correct Launch Angle (few
even close on this one).
Most importantly, you must be using the Correct Golf Ball for your
virtually every golfer I have worked with is way off the mark.
fact, the longest ball for a given real world golfer
may not be the longest ball for another golfer. It
may even be the shortest!
frustrating to meet so many golfers who are not using the right
ball type due to no fault of their own. In many cases, they
are getting the wrong information. What's worse, they often
up playing "whatever they find in their bag" (or

their ball is matched to their specific swing type, swing speed,

launch monitors, professional fittings, and unlimited ball
types for experimentation.
may have noticed:
can't go to your local practice range and demo golf balls.
is extremely critical that
the serious golfer understands that the best performing
golf ball for you also depends on specific factors
loft, shaft flex, swing type (slow, fast, etc...), shot
type (fade, draw), and several other factors.
fact, most of the other variables that affect your
distance and accuracy just aren't public knowledge
because they aren't written about in the magazines or talked
about during the broadcasts. They are the domain of people
who work in the golf ball industry. Like
the old saying, the "devil is in the details".
the best golf ball for YOU, combined
with solid impact, and the right launch angle can literally
transform your game immediately by adding 10, 20, even 30 yards

I can't thank you enough for your help!
just got a dozen RB's,
they are AMAZING! I have been hitting the

also more durable than the PB's I
was playing with.

Thanks a lot!

I hit more greens with the RB than
the PB, so I have been
playing for the last month with the RB and playing
more consistently with longer distance.
Thanks again for your suggestion of the RB and
hope you are having a good Spring.
