Best Golf Balls for Senior Golfers

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.

Best Golf balls for senior golfers

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 ( ‘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

  1. You need a ball designed for maximum compression for your swing speed
  2. You need a ball designed with optimum spin rate and launch angle for you.

The Best Golf Balls for Senior Golfers

Most senior golfers and golfers over 50 are going to have a swing speed slower than 90 mph. If this is true for you, and you have a handicap higher than 18, these are the best golf balls designed to improve your golf game. These balls are 2-piece golf balls which will allow you to compress the core of the golf ball for greater distance.

High Handicap Senior Golf Balls

1) Titliest Velocity Ball


Titleist Velocity One Dozen BoxThe Titliest Velocity ball is a 2-piece ball with exceptional distance but does not feel like a rock when you putt it. It has a soft cover for a playable feel in your short game.

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.

Senior Balls For Mid To High Handicap Golfers

If you have a mid to high handicap but your swing speed is above 90mph, the two golf balls above are not for you! They compress too easily and you will lose distance. The following golf balls will maximize your distance but still give you the benefits of a golf ball with lower spin to improve your accuracy.

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.
