Golf Ball Information Chart (Layers, Spin, Compression)

In this post, I’m going to be listing all the information about all of the latest golf balls. We’ll be covering layers, spin rate, compression, and other information you’d want to know about the most popular golf balls on the market.

Golf ball layers are how many pieces the ball is made from. Most balls these days are made from between 2 and 5 layers. 2 piece balls are generally cheaper and are designed for higher handicap or beginner golfers. They normally produce low spin and are great for golfers who hook or slice the ball. 3 piece balls have a bit more spin to them and 5 pieces usually have the most.

Golf ball spin is how much spin the ball will have. Low spin balls are designed for the average player who hooks or slices the ball often. Medium spin balls are designed for the player who wants a bit more spin to stop the ball on the green or draw/fade the ball. High spin balls are designed for scratch players who want the most control over the ball.

Wondering what golf ball compression you should be using? This is how much force it takes to properly compress the ball. Low compression balls are designed for average players who don’t have the fastest swing speed. They’re much easier to keep straight and most people will get the most distance out of them. If you have faster swing speeds then you might benefit more from a higher compression ball.

Golf ball feel is how soft or hard the ball feels at impact. It doesn’t have a huge impact on the performance but everyone will prefer something slightly different. For full details, read our article: Hard vs Soft Golf Balls: What You Should Play.

What golf ball should you use for your swing speed? Swing speed is how fast you swing the club, and it has a pretty big impact on what ball you should be playing. If you don’t swing the club fast enough, you might get zero height or distance. If you swing the club too fast, the ball will balloon up in the air and you’ll also get no distance.

Here’s a general chart for what your swing speed might be:

Just an average golfer trying to take my game to the next level. Was shooting around 100 not that long ago but have now been in the 80s consistently. Best round to date was 12 over. Best 9 holes were 4 over.
