Best Golf Balls for Seniors

So we've covered the key elements of the best golf clubs for seniors, but what about golf balls? Does choosing the right golf ball really matter for seniors?

Of course it does. Choosing the right golf ball is something that every golfer should take seriously by first evaluating his or her game, and then purchasing the ball that's best suited for his or her individual needs.

Most senior golfers are concerned with one thing: Distance. If adding a few yards to your drive is your primary concern, then you should consider using a low-compression golf ball. These products often feature a two-piece design, and are a good choice for mid-to-high handicappers that can afford to sacrifice a little feel for distance.

If you're looking to increase your yardage while retaining the feel and control that is crucial to your short game, then you should look for a low-compression ball with a three or four-piece design. These types of golf balls won't be as hard as their two-pieced counterparts, but may offer a good compromise between short game control and long distance driving.

If this equipment is vastly different than your current golf balls, we recommend scheduling a training session with the course's instructor who can show you how to make the most of your new balls to better your game. Here are some great golf balls to better suit a seniors' game:
