Golf Ball Fitting Quiz: Find the Right Ball for Your Game

Three different popular brands of golf ball that are included in the answer key for the golf ball fitting quiz

There are many great golf balls out there, and the difference between them is much more than a brand name. Every golf ball leverages different technology and strategies to improve feel, performance, and aesthetics for different situations. Some are made to be great all-around balls, whereas some are meant to make things a bit easier off the tee or on the green.

Trevor Cigich | Director of Retail Marketing |  Worldwide Golf Shops

I’ve been at Worldwide Golf Shops for 6 years, and I’ve been playing golf for 23 years. I have played a few mini tour events but now compete occasionally at the amateur level– currently a +2.1 handicap. I am a bit of a tinkerer when it comes to golf and golf clubs. I enjoy testing all aspects of different products, utilizing various fitting systems and learning about all the different club shafts, club lengths, golf balls, and putter styles. Not just for my game, but to help customers of all calibers.
