The secret of The Distance
Optimized ball flight is required for an outstanding distance.
For an outstanding distance, you should choose a ball with compression strength that is appropriate for your swing speed. Also, a ball flight with a moderate height trajectory is ideal. It is usually considered to be the most desirable flight to fly at a height of about 25 to 30 meters and for the flight time to take from between 5 seconds and a half to beginning of 6 seconds.
If you want to get the maximum distance from your swing, you first need to figure out your swing speed. If a golfer with a slow swing speed uses a ball of high compressive strength, the force being transmitted to the ball will be weak, making it difficult for the ball to stabilize, bringing loss to distance. Conversely, if a golfer with a high swing speed uses a ball with low compressive strength, the force being transmitted to the ball is scattered past the center of the golf ball, resulting in a distance loss. Therefore, it is important to select a ball that matches your head speed to maximize ball’s repulsive strength.
Ball flight time is also an important factor. To ensure a stable flight, you need to look at how ball dimples are designed. If your ball flight is too low, select high-trajectory dimple and if the ball flight is too high, select a low-trajectory dimple to form a stable flight trajectory that will contribute towards distance. Ball flight time is related to trajectory. If the ball's trajectory is formed at a level that is too low, the flight time will be shortened and the distance will be reduced. If the ball is flying higher than necessary, the direction of the force will be directed upward rather than forward, resulting in loss of distance.
The most important thing in golf (score, play) is accuracy. Accuracy can be roughly divided into fairway accuracy and green accuracy.
First, for fairway accuracy, it is important to know how exactly the golf ball has landed on the fairway. Beginner golfers usually try to hit the ball straight, but misses occur as they fail to get the exact impact. In such cases, choosing a golf ball that has a low spin helps in the game. This is because it minimizes the angle of deflection by generating fewer side spins during impact, thereby increasing the straightness of the ball relatively. Of course, a ball with a low spinning power is good in distance and straightness, but multiple runs may occur in the case of targeting the green.
Second, the green accuracy is related to accurate targeting towards the pin.
For intermediate and advanced golfers, if you can achieve a certain degree of swing and impact, you must target the green with precise control. Therefore, it is advantageous to select a golf ball that generates high spin and to minimize the occurrence of runs when targeting the green. However, in the case of a ball having a good spin force, the cover may have a reduced elasticity, which may result in a drop in distance compared to a ball having a low spin.
Therefore, it is necessary to find a suitable ball according to the individual’s skills and preference, as every golfer has different handicap and skills of swing speed, style, distance and spin and also their subjective preference for hitting feel, hitting sound and colors are different. Volvik Ball Fitting analyzes the ball flight through a test that takes place after the first-round consultation and recommends the most suitable ball for each golfer according to the objective analysis of the golfer’s swing and subjective preference. Selecting a ball of the right specification according to the player’s ability and preference allows the player can achieve a more stable and constant ball flight trajectory, and as a result, it will improve the distance and accuracy of the player’s performance.
