Every golfer knows buying a new set of irons, a driver or fairway wood is a huge task – it’s like buying a new car, so many options, brands and setups and the golf ball is just as complex. We have teamed up with Srixon to bring you this guide to making sure you get the right ball in your bag.

It’s a painstaking process which involves hours of research, browsing websites, testing and multiple visits to your pro shop or golf superstore.

That’s before we get anywhere near the subject of custom fitting (we will save that for another time).

What a lot of golfers, especially those of the higher handicap variety don’t realise is that that same level of attention should be given to the ball you play.

All those colourful boxes, all those different brands and models, then opening the box to always find three dimpled orbs in a sleeve, which are always 1.68 inches in diameter and must not weigh more than 1.62 ounces. Why are there so many versions of the same thing?

The balls might look the same, but they each do different things for different types of players and have different effects on your bank balance.

It’s enough to send you into a spin and that could be a good or a bad thing for your game.

Take your performance further with a Srixon golf ball which is ‘Engineered for Your Game’.

SPIN REVOLUTIONALIZED

If you really want to score low, you need spin. A lot of spin. So Srixon added SeRM (Slide Ring Material). This extremely resilient urethane cover uses Moveable Polymer
Cross-Linking to greatly enhance spin.
With molecular bonds that stretch but don’t break, SeRM gives you a softer cover that actually digs into your club grooves at impact.
That extra bite means more friction, which leads to dramatically more spin, and ultimately, unmatched stopping power around the green.
This unique SeRM blends into a Spin Skin coating to improve not only driver distance but also feel and spin.

 

DISTANCE + SOFT FEEL

Soft golf balls feel great. Hard golf balls go far. But you’ve never played a ball that’s both soft and hard. Until now.
Srixon started with the core of the core. Then, they add the layers. Thousands of them. Until they’ve built a core that’s firm enough to deliver the explosive distance you expect, yet soft enough for the feel you’ve always wanted in a tour ball.
With its gradual transition from soft inner core to firm outer edge, FastLayer behaves like a core with thousands of layers, giving you distance and soft feel without compromise.
