    Here's one source of "compression" information on a large variety of golf balls.

    “1lb beefstak, with
    1pt bitter beer
    every 6 hours.
    1 ten-mile walk every morning.
    1 bed at 11 sharp every night.
    And don't stuff your head with things you don't understand.”

    I like this chart, it matches up with my experiences with 48 models listed, too bad it only starts in 2006. Would love to see a Molitor, Tour Edition, all Stratas, Pro V1s 2001-2005, Pro V1Xs 2003-2005, Srixons, MC Double Covers, and more.

    I'm a 90's golfer. My swing speed is 80mph. I play wilson staff duo, compression 29. If compression doesn't matter how do I choose the right ball?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
