Best Answer

A Golf ball with a compression rating of 70-80 is considered a "low compression" ball. They distort easier, giving them a softer feel and more greenside control but less distance.

What is the difference between women's and men's golf balls?

There isn't any difference in the balls. It is the distance of the tee from the hole which balances things out. Generally men's golf balls have a compression of 90 or 100. Lady, senior and junior golf balls are usually 80 compression. The compression of a golf ball is directly related to your swing speed. If you have a high swing speed, you want a high compression ball.....if you have a slow swing speed, you need a low compression ball. Weather is also a factor in the compression you should use. If it's cold you may want a 90 compression ball so it will travel further. That doesn't mean hit an 80 compression ball so you can gain distance the ball won't last 2 holes if you have too high of a swing speed. Woman's golf balls are more softer and soft balls carry more backspin to shots. Men's golf balls are harder and so for their long game shots, their ball goes further. Womans golf balls are usually better for short game but not for distance. I use hard balls. I like the way they feel when I put and when I make contact with the ball. Womans golf balls feel a bit hollow to me when I put so I prefer the hard ones.


Are low compression golf balls better for slower club head speeds?

Yes. You will get the ball to squish into the face better if you have a slower clubhead speed than a power hitter.
