Cheap Or Expensive

Our ‘Cheap & Expensive’ topic could pertain to almost any and every aspect of ‘The Great Game’, but at this juncture we are dealing with ‘The Price Of Golf Balls’.

There are ‘Two and Three Piece Balls’. Without a lot of description and chatter, the ‘3 Piece Ball’ has a center or core, an outer layer and the cover. In general, the ‘2 Piece Ball’ has one piece that makes up the core and a less-dense body. There are various ‘Dimple Patterns’ and you shall decide on a variety for any number of reasons. Are ‘Dimples’ important? Ask Bernoulli whose Theorem very much influences aerodynamic and Spin-Rate behaviour.

The point of this conversation might deal with the ‘Distance’ achieved with a certain ball. Is there a difference in air and ground time … ‘Total Distance’? Yes! Is it 15 to 35 yards with your Driver? It will be less for shorter golf clubs that generate less ‘Clubhead Speed’ and delivered ‘Ball Speed’.    

With decades and even generations of teaching and playing experience, if you need a little more overall length and to lose fewer golf balls, perhaps you might play the next forward or closer teeing ground? In your heart and mind you know why there are two or three ‘Tee Boxes’ forward of ‘The Tips’? You can easily and predictably gain up to 15 to 35 yards by ‘Plying It Forward’!

A really decent two-piece ball might cost $17.00 to $20.00 per dozen. The egocentric three-piece name brand bullet will fetch $40.00 to $50.00 per dozen.

Here is how I see the bottom line! Until you are actually compressing and delivering your ball ‘On-Line’ and scoring in the low 80’s, you do not need to waste hard-earned money on expensive golf balls. I actually start most of my students at the ‘Quality Used Ball Bin … $0.75 to $1.00 for good, like new name-brand bullets! If your course has very new range balls, they belong there and not in your bag! Karma is a nasty hag! Golf is an honest gentleman’s game!
