Swing Speed 100-104

Handicap-9.3

Current Ball- E5

Look for: I look for spin off my irons and wedges. I almost always require a urethane cover. I like the e5 because it spins around the green due to the urethane cover but is also only 2 pieces so I get a distance ball as well

6 Handicap

Callaway SR3

Ideally, I'd like a ball that has a decent blend of both. I want green side control but not at the expense of iron and wood shots that balloon up because of a high spin coefficient. I'm usually willing to part with a little bit of green side control in order to keep the spin down on the mishits.

I'm looking for a ball that doesn't go into the trees or the water or goes out of bounds! This secret ball might be the answer! I'm also looking for a ball that has little side spin effect on driver and a ton of spin on my short irons.

Taylormade Lethal/ Callaway Chrome Soft

Control is the most important aspect of a ball. I want to know that i will get consistent results from the ball provided i put the right swing on it.  Spin around the green needs to be controllable to be able to hit a variety of shots.
