It’s time for our annual edition of the best golf balls for senior golfers and golfers over 50. Aside from your body(which is our specialty) the golf ball is the single piece of equipment that you use on every shot in your golf game.
Ten years ago you might have been able to get away with playing whatever ball you found in the bushes, but technology has made golf balls very specific to golf players. In other words, if your driving swing speed has dipped down below 95, 90, or 80 mph due to age, their is a golf ball made to maximize your performance.
And with increased technology and specification, selecting the right ball for your game has become more and more confusing. So we are providing this guide to help simplify your selection and choose the ball that will improve your golf game!
Factors to Consider When Choosing the Best Golf Ball for You
You want to be using a golf ball that will maximize your driving distance for your specific swing speed while controlling any unintended side spin that could cause the ball to curve away from your target.
And don’t forget the importance of your short game! You will benefit from a ball with good green side control and putting performance (ei.no ‘rocks’ for golf balls).
I know everybody loves the Pro V1! I do to. But keep in mind that this is a golf ball designed to respond best to a higher swing speed. What does this mean for you? If your swing speed is less than 95 mph, you will be unable to compress the deep core layer of this golf ball. Without this compression, the ball is not going to fly very far and you could add a lot of distance by choosing a ball made to maximize distance for your swing speed.
Keys You Need to Consider
- You need a ball designed for maximum compression for your swing speed
- You need a ball designed with optimum spin rate and launch angle for you.

The Best Golf Balls for Senior Golfers

High Handicap Senior Golf Balls
1) Titliest Velocity Ball
Great ball for the high handicapper because it is a low spin ball off of the driver which will keep your ball on a straighter flight path. This ball has a lot of ‘buzz’ for being the “next great ball from Titliest.”
2) Taylormade Rocketballz
This years version comes with a softer cover for improved green-side control but, like the Titliest Velocity ball, is designed for maximum distance and minimal side spin for straighter and longer shots.

3) Titliest NXT Tour S
The NXT Tour S is also a 2-piece golf ball, but made to optimize higher swing speeds. Designed to provide optimal launch, long iron spin, and still retain a softer compression feel for green-side control and feel.
If you are looking for the best golf balls for seniors for performance in this catagory, you will probably like the NXT Tour S.
4) Bridgestone e5
As a result, the Bridgestone 2013 e5 has better green side control for for greater stopping power but it isn’t as durable as the Titliest NXT Tour ball above.
If you are looking for a ball with a higher flight and longer carry distance with a softer feel, the Bridgestone 2013 e5 may suit you.

5) Srixon Z-Star
This is a real game changer for the senior golfer and golfers over 50 looking for tour performance and great distance.

I have yet to hear any negative feedback on this ball. The Srixon XV is their
I have yet to hear any negative feedback on this ball. The Srixon XV is their high performance golf ball for golfers with high swing speeds. The z-star is designed to maximize distance on slower swing speeds.
6) Bridgestone B330-Rx
Designed to reduce spin off of the tee for maximum distance but provide excellent feel and spin on approach shots to hold the green. Perfect combination for golfers with slower swing speeds.
