The gang at MyGolfSpy has undertaken an extensive testing study of all major golf balls on the market and boy is it one Hot List!
The same folks who elevated the Kirkland ball from Costco to cult status still say that’s a nice value, but the Snell MTB-X appears to be the new MyGolfSpy hero of the golf ball world while Callaway’s Chrome Soft ball landed on the list as the shortest flying ball in their testing, 17 yards behind the Snell.
So much for the statement that all of these balls are just about the same these days. Their key conclusions:
Driver Distance (115 MPH): The average carry distance between the shortest and the longest ball in our test is 17.43 yards.
Driver Distance (85 MPH): The average carry distance between the shortest and the longest ball in our test is 7.6 yards.
Wedge Spin: There is an average of 1425 RPM difference from highest spinning to the lowest spinning ball in our test.
If that is not enough to convince you, consider this; at the fastest speed tested, the distance between the longest single ball and the shortest in the test was an astonishing 38.77 yards. For most golfers, that’s a 3+ clubs difference.
The ball that rolled back the ball! Without trying. Intentionally.
