Whether you're on the front nine or the full 18, your golf ball makes a difference. If you're at the range, you can always use cheap golf balls or used golf balls by the bucketful, but if you’re still managing to hook, upgrade your ball.
Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls: What Are They Made of? When golfers choose their golf equipment, they are focused on results. They are impressed by cutting-edge technology only if it cuts a few strokes from their game. That's why so many of these sportsmen and women have chosen Titleist golf balls over the years. The company has never been satisfied with the status quo so they continually develop new technology to improve their products, even those that are already popular.
If you are looking to buy a gift for a golfer that just might make an improvement in his or her game, I recommend the TaylorMade TP5 and TP5x ball. TaylorMade introduced both balls to the market in 2017, essentially to compete with the Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x, and the manufacturer had instant success with both if you take into account the men’s PGA Tour and the current world rankings.

Since this is Earth Week 2017, let’s talk about why you should think about using recycled golf balls. Before buying that brand-new box of Titleist Pro V1’s with the price tag reading $47.99, consider these environmental and economic reasons for buying used.

One of the most common questions we get here at LostGolfBalls.com is about the difference between a recycled golf ball and one that’s been refinished. This week we seek to answer that question by examining the process both types of balls go through before they travel from our warehouse to your golf bag.
I bet you did not know that illegal golf balls, or non-conforming golf balls were even a thing. The good news is, the good folks at LostGolfBalls and PG Professional Golf have teamed up to design the world's best illegal golf ball. The best illegal golf balls are the ones that get the most distance and also play well around the greens. Many illegal golf balls over the years have made big claims about the distance achieved, but have never really addressed the lack of playability, especially around the greens. One critic said, "You will get some great distance off the tee, yet you will have less feel and playability around the green. Illegal golf balls don't let you develop your game."
Perhaps you have seen that odd miniature soccer ball rolling across your golf course. Well, that golf ball isn’t sporting that pattern as some sort of gimmick to appeal to soccer-mad golfers. Its name is Truvis, and it is helping players around the world improve their game and lower their handicaps. But don’t be mistaken, this isn’t just an aid for your average Joe. With 16 Pro Tour wins already, the Truvis pattern is making its impact among the professional ranks as well. In fact, Truvis patterned golf balls have become the favorite of eight-time major champion Tom Watson.
Over recent years, technology used in manufacturing golf balls has witnessed massive leaps forward. The days of liquid-core balls that would lose compression and distance after exposure to heat or water are far in the past. The modern solid-core ball offers consistency, longevity and durability that far exceeds the golf ball of yesteryear. This has opened a market for recycled balls.
