One way to find the heaviest ball in two attempts is to split the balls into two groups of 4 each and weigh them against each other. Whichever group is heavier will contain the heavier ball. Then, take the heavier group of 4 balls and weigh two of the balls against each other. If one ball is heavier, it will be the heaviest ball. If they weigh the same, the third ball left out is the heaviest.

Divide the balls into 3 groups of 2, 2, and 3. Weigh the group of 2 balls against each other. If they balance, then the heavier ball is in the group of 3, in which you weigh 2 of the 3 balls to identify the heaviest. If the group of 2 balls doesn't balance, then you weigh those 2 balls to identify the heavier one.

Because the table-tennis ball is hollow on the inside and made of a lighter weight celluloid, while the Golf ball is made of a hard outer shell of plastic with rubber compacted on the inside. The golf ball is denser, meaning it has more mass per volume (since they're the same size), so it is heavier.
