Take Control of Your Game

If you have a fairly decent short game and are missing a lot of greens a suggestion to improve your short game would be to use a golf ball that spins more to help you get up and down. Along with greenside control, extra spin, tour-grade performance, and exceptional feel,that is what a golfer in control wants. Here are a few suggestions we have for a ball with more control around the greens, approach shots, and have exceptional feel.


  • Titleist Pro V1: has a softer urethane cover to allow more spincontrol and feel around the green. 
  • TaylorMade Tour Preferred: Has more spin on iron shots, and the Soft Tech Cover this ball has more greenside control and spin.
  • Bridgestone B330-SThe Bridgestone Tour B330-S (spin) is designed for golfers seeking exceptional, consistent performance while achieving incredible distance and optimal greenside control. If you have a swing speed over 100-112 mph or if you have a lower trajectory and feel like your shots are not spinning enough, this is the ball for you. 
  • TaylorMade Project (a):  a “tour” ball built for the amateur golfer. This ball has a spin mantle to help increase shortgame spin and it's urethane cover helps for higher greenside spin with softer feel. 
  • Srixon Z-Star XV: The Srixon Z-Star XV is a four-piece ball with a dual-core that decreases sping off the driver while creating high spin off full wedge shots and increases friction around the greens for short-game shots.
