I play off of a 9 handicap and i just use random balls that are anywhere except for in high school matches. How much would the right golf ball actually improve my game?

A lot.  Just the consistency of using the same ball would help, much less getting fit for best ball for you.

  Well to answer your own question, you say you use random, except in high school matches.  Do you score better in your high school match?   I think it makes a difference using one ball that you feel confident with and know exactly how the ball feels, especially off the putter.

The better you hit the ball, the more it makes a difference. Trying hitting an e6 then compare that to a penta or prov1 off the tee. Totally different feel, roll and spin. Take that same ball and try to chip now.... VERY different. Again take that same ball and put, one is a rock one is a nice soft feel.

If you don't hit the ball well, its not going to matter what ball you have. The better you hit it the more you will see a difference

It depends, but any where from 2-4 strokes off your handicap! Your scores will be lower because you'll have more consistency and know what to expect out of your ball (i.e., less spin off the driver, controlled spin off mid-long irons, type of spin around greens, and consistent feel off the putter).
The only way you'll know for yourself is if you try and be loyal to a ball, obviously choose one that is best for you and your game. I finally found that ball for me and it has made a significant difference

While it effects all aspects of golf, putting is where the biggest impact is.


Spend 10 minutes on the practice putting green with three different balls.


Spend 10 minutes on the practice putting green with three identical balls.


I suspect you will see a difference in distance control.


2/3 of the balls I try, I don't buy again simply because I don't like the way they putt.

Yes..This

It's important to match the ball with the type of game you're playing (or trying to play).  Personally, I'm working on contolling the ball with spin in my short game, so I'm only playing good urethane balls with similar characterisics.  Can't develop a spin-based short game with an E6.  If I was working on a pure bump-run style and only cared about distance off the tee, E6 might be perfect.   But don't mix ball types too much (distance rock vs quality spinners).   Get used to one type so you can predict the result.  When you do put the right swing on it, it matters.

If I was you...know what ball you are going to be using for your matches then play at least one round before the match using the ball to be used during the match....to get a feel for how it performs.  Otherwise play whatever but try to pay attention to how different balls perform for you.

With a 9 handcap, you should have a fairly repeatable swing.  Break you game down to see where you are loosing the most strokes.

Off the Tee, approach shots, short game around the green, or putting.  Take a look at shotbyshot.com, they charge for a "subscription", but they will break you game down to what area you are the worst at.  You get an idea of how to do it yourself if you don't want to join up.

Then find the ball that will help you get better in your weakest area.

And by all means use the same ball with your skill level.  Their is so much difference in how a ball reacts around the green where for the most folks, the most improvement can be made.

I even practice in my short game practice area with a shag bag full of PRO V1X "practice" balls only.

What ball do you play now in your high school competition?

This is something I sought to answer this year, and have now  come to the conclusion that YES, balls do make a big difference.

Was playing some Bertha Diablo's (from a Walmart box) felt OK - and for some reason I like putting with rocks. But, the spin I couldn't generate with my short irons caused me to really try to find a ball to match my playstyle. Back to back well hit short irons (I have about a 100-110 SS) , dollar bill divots, hit the green and merrily continue another 20 yards made me almost scream in frustration.  

Got some Srixions Q Stars and that happens no more.

So, do what I did, drop 20 bucks to experiment. You'll be glad you did.

My advice to is practice with the ball that you are going to use in your tournaments.  You need to know the balls characterisitcs (trajectory, spin, etc...).

I am still a firm believer that the golf ball itself (brand, construction, cost, etc...) doesn't make that much difference in one's scoring ability. Being a golf coach, teacher, guinea pig and so forth as led me to this belief.  I have shot many great scores with golf balls that pretty much cover the entire golf ball spectrum. As long as you know the individual golf balls characterisitcs and have the ability to play a wide variety of shots, then you will be able to both improve as a golfer and shoot lower scores :)

It makes a difference. I played the One Tour D for 2-1/2 years. They've been getting harder and harder to find since the 20XI line dropped, so I've been trying out ball after ball. I ended up with the Pro V1x, but honestly, my game has been off ever since I started messing with different balls. After that long with one ball, you know exactly how it feels and play off of every club, and changing just throws a wrench in everything.

I normally play with mid-price balls, such as the NXT Tour, Diablo Tour, Gamer V2, etc. But every now and then I"ll treat myself to Titleist ProV1 and ProV1x. The satisfaction and feel of the high-end balls can be very evident. It's great when the ball stays on the green.

But, at the end of the day, my score doesn't change enough to really notice. I can miss putts with any ball.

I know for a fact that I hit the ball closer to the hole when hitting pitches inside 40 yards using a premium ball.  Other than that probably not much difference either way.  BUT inside 40 yards is IMO the most important part of my game.

I'm not convinced it makes a huge difference...maybe switching brands midround is bad (although I do it) but there are going to be so many other variables on the golf course (temp, how damp the greens are, wind) that you will be making adjustments regardless of what ball you are playing.

I don't really notice a difference in the balls I play, though... so maybe I'm a bad person to answer this question. I'm not sure how to empirically prove whether or not playing the same ball matters.

Golf is much more art than science, and even though I may want to hit a shot that hops 3 feet and then stops, that doesn't mean I'm going to hit my shot 3 feet in front of the pin... I'm just not that precise. I think a ball that fits your game decently is good enough, and playing with a variety of balls shouldn't have too much of an impact.

I might try to play the same ball over the next few weeks to see if I can build my game around it, just to disprove myself.

For me, I can play an array of similar balls and get similar results. But, if I have a tournament coming, I will play the previous round with a tournament ball/sleeve. Off the driver I don't see that big of a difference other than feel (sure, hitting rocks vs. mush will be different, but drivers are drivers, I am trying to hit it as hard as I can). The difference is in chipping, pitching, putting. I am a BIG feel player around the green, and that is where I pick up my score. I don't hit it far, and I don't try to hit it far. But when it comes to play 7,000+ courses, my third shot and my putt is what keeps me in the game. I like my wedge to feel a certain way, react a certain way on the green, and release when I want it to while bite when I try to put swings on it. I like my putt to feel a certain way, and I hate the sound of a rock on my awesome putter. It's all mental, it's all me. I know. But if it gives me the confidence to shoot a 78 in a tournament on a 7,000+ course for a short hitter like me, I'll take it.

This guy has it right...

Regardless of which ball you play. If one understands what each ball is designed for and realizes how they react and understands course condition variation... They can score low regardless of the ball.

For many years I played Pro V1X's and would have a brief relationship with other premium balls but would always come back to the Pro V1X ball.  Then I found the older Srixon Z Star XV in yellow and it was a favorite until the company changed the cover to the Spin Skin and I was gone.  Next up was the Bridgestone B330 which is the current ball.

Last summer my dear wife bought me a box of 15 Slazenger Distance balls because they were "a great value and on sale".  You can't return a box that comes to you that way.  So one day at my course when I opened my bag I saw a few of those Slazengers and decided to play the round with that ball, as the round was not critical for anything, and see how the score changed.  I've found that the quality of my contact is the most important factor in my scoring more than any equipment issue or change.  I'm a 4 handicapper with a high ball flight and off the tee they were longer and off the irons they were longer but not a club longer.  Off the short game stuff of 50 yards and on in they would release and run more but I learned that after a couple of holes and adjusted.  Off the putter was the biggest difference with distance control being the hurdle.  At the end of the round I shot about 2 strokes higher than my normal scores.

The firmer the greens, the more it matters.

If the softer/more receptive/slower the greens are, the less it matters.

probably kept his tempo in check throughout the round knowing he was hitting a ladies ball thus end result solid strikes and no snap hooks

Well, for me, switching to a ball with a urethane cover has made a massive difference in approach and greenside shots. I can actually spin the ball again after playing the E6 for a few seasons. My long game is off at the moment, so any ball off the tee is going right...I'm living up to my moniker now...

Titleist has a commercial with the Pros talking about how much they trust their Titleist ball to do this or that or whatever. I have to admit I thought that was stupid and a bunch of BS when I saw that. However, it is not. Knowing how the ball will launch and spin and stop or roll out is so very important.

I play the same ball all the time. Course conditions and situations are always changing but the ball (no matter which ball you chose) needs to react the same.

I hit down into a creek area the other day. I was faced with a 150 yard shot that had to get up quickly and get over an embankment yet I had tree limbs to keep it under. I just knew a waist high 21* hybrid with the ball located just inside my left foot, it would be the right height and length to reach the green. I hit the shot and it did reach the green.

I am not sure that would have been the case if I did not have 100% confidence in how that ball was going to react.

Depends on your game.

If your game is boring (Hit everything straight. Great for scoring) then not much will impact the outcome
If your game involves a lot creativity (shot shaping, varying spins) then most definitely
