Which golf ball is best for seniors?
Face it, we don’t swing our golf clubs as fast as we use to, so how do we get our distance back? We use a lower compression golf ball that’s how. The Wilson Staff Duo Soft golf ball is one of the lowest compression golf balls and one of the best golf balls for seniors. Another great golf ball for seniors is the Wilson Smart-Core golf ball. The Smart-Core golf ball is designed to react to your swing speed making it a fantastic golf ball for seniors.
Colored Golf Balls
I’m not getting any younger and I’m starting to have trouble seeing my golf balls, so I thought I would start out with these cool looking colored golf balls, in case you are having the same problem as I am. So here are the ones that I have tried out.
MG Golf Balls
The MG Golf Balls come in three, well, really two colors, unless you count white as a color, lol. You get to choose from white, yellow, and pink.
I have to tell you, you can’t use these in professional tournaments as they are not USGA approved so you know, but these are still fun to play with on a weekend.
MG Golf Balls benefit us with slower swing speeds, by giving us more forgiveness and more distance with every shot. You will enjoy the soft feel and control of these balls with every swing.
Chromax Metallic M5 Colored Golf Balls
I tried these out recently and I really didn’t know what to expect from them. They are the strangest looking golf ball I have tried for sure. The chrome look is crazy good, and I had no problems seeing or finding them out on the course.
I did notice a little more distance on my drives and iron shots, maybe a few more yards maybe. These chrome balls will roll forever on the greens, it’s crazy.
I think the dimple design is what gave it the few extra yards and for sure it lets the ball roll a lot more on the greens. When I hit the Chromax Metallic M5 it has a very solid feel, a solid core and it felt like it had a lot more pop, I would say these balls did more than I expected and the chrome color is insane. Great golf ball.
Volvik Vivid Golf Balls
Volvik has made an awesome golf ball. They come in 11 different colors with a matte finish. You will see this ball with no problems either on fairways, in the rough or taller grass.
Volvik golf balls have 322 dimples which give the ball a more stable flight. They have a wonderful soft feel to them, with the elastic outer cover you get a lot of control and accuracy around the greens.
The inner core is bigger than usual and with that, they increase your distance some. I love all the colors you can get this ball in. Great color.
More Distance Golf Balls
Well, I found some golf balls for seniors that will surely give you more distance on your drives and irons. Some are expensive and others are pretty affordable.
Bridgestone e6 Soft Golf Ball
I find that this one is probably the best one out there or in the top 3. The e6 is long on both the driver and irons and has a great feel and spin around the greens.
The Bridgestone e6 is a pretty straight shooter down the fairways. You can really feel the softness with your wedges and can command the spin anywhere on the greens. Pretty impressive versus the more expensive golf balls.
One thing I did notice compared to the others on this list is the e6 is pretty boring looking and I didn’t notice any alignment graphics on them, but they are priced very reasonably for the seniors.
TaylorMade Burner Golf Balls
TaylorMade made this Burner golf ball, but I wonder if any of them ever went outside and hit any. This sounds crazy, but when I tried them out the burner made a funky noise. I can’t really describe it, but I did Google it and found that there are others who noticed the sound too.
So besides the funky noise when you strike these they are great for more distance and they increase speed. The Burner has a softer feel and will improve your game.
Callaway Supersoft Golf Balls
Callaway makes this supersoft golf ball for seniors. With the lower spin and faster ball speed, these balls will give more distance and straighter flights that will improve your game.
The Hex design adds lift and reduces drag giving you more carry on every shot. Callaway uses a Tri-Ionomer cover on these balls to add more soft feel hitting either off the tee or with irons. With your wedges, the feel is increased to allow you more control and spin on your shots at the green.
Callaway does a fantastic job with golf balls for seniors, I think they would benefit all types and styles of golfers, with some fantastic results out on the golf course.
More Feel Golf Balls
I found some golf balls that add more spin and feel to the golf balls for those of you who prefer to add this to your game. They have better feel and control to really stick that shot at the pin.
Srixon AD333 Golf Balls
The AD333 has more feel and spin around the greens and more distance on drivers and irons. They have a lower drag which adds accuracy and a straighter shot.
Srixon AD333 is a two-piece ball with 338 dimples. This gets you from the tee box to the green with higher confidence in your swing and shot management.
Now, these are a little expensive to buy, however, with their ability to be more stable in windy conditions, the better launch and the softer feel, as well as the better spin, they are cheaper than the higher priced balls. I think the AD333, from the tee to the pin, is as good of a performer as the more expensive brands.
Wilson Staff 50 Elite Golf Balls
Wilson has made a pretty good golf ball in the 50 elite. These balls are very affordable and perform very well. The beginner and mid handicapper would benefit from these golf balls.
The Wilson Staff 50 Elite golf balls feature a straight flight, great launch, long-distance, and carry very well. They generate plenty of spin with your approach irons and wedges to keep the ball nicely on the greens. These balls have an attractive price and perform very well.
Avant 55 Golf Balls
Oncore has made a wonderful golf ball for seniors. The Avant 55 golf balls add distance and have a really soft feel. They have a lower spin coming off your driver but really get spinning on the approach and wedges around the green. These balls perform better with longer and straighter putts. Avant 55 won an award on the Golf Digest Hotlist in 2019. This ball is perfect for all skilled players and is known to be pretty good in cold weather. I really like these and think they would make a solid ball for playing some rounds.
If none of these golf balls seem to get your attention, and this is for anyone and everyone, I did find another company that, in my own opinion, makes the best golf balls and they are super affordable and have outstanding performance that can be compared to the top golf balls on the market today.
