Golfers invest a lot of time and money into picking the best clubs that will help them hit the ball further, but let’s address the elephant in the room shall we?
If you’re wanting more yards on the course – let alone off the tee – you need to be picking the right balls for the job.
Most distance balls usually feature a two-piece design comprising merely a cover and a core, rather than the multi-layer constructions used in premium ones.
We’ve rounded up what we think are the best distance golf balls that could add a new dimension to your long game. And what’s even better is they’re all available online, so you don’t have to venture out to pick them up.
