Worst golf balls ever


ltom

Recommended Posts

The Spaulding ball at Wal-Mart

I bought a dozen and they were noticeably bad

Easily a club short and no feel on the greens

I saw some people had durability issues but I didn't play them that long to find out

After 3 holes I went back to a Z-Star

 

I don't care how much they cost, they are pure trash 💩💩💩💩💩

Cut Blue.  Wanted to love them due to price point.  Needing to replace a ball after each wedge shot due to the cover getting cut, and actually embedding sand into the cover on a bunker shot made the price not so great

Ironic that they are named "Cut".

Spalding Molitor’s, Players, Yellow Tornado’s (Showing my age here hey: fellow UK’ers 🤣) Balls with ‘Titanium Distance stamped all over them; or anything from Sports Direct 😳

Oh man you're taking me way back with the Molitors.  Now I feel old.  As for more recent offerings, the Mojos and the Maxfli Noodles are right there as some of the worst balls ever.

I was in costco once and bought a case of Kirkland signature golf balls.  High price for poor performance.  Has to be the worst ball ever made.

Wouldn't call them the worst balls ever made.  However, they don't perform to the levels they tout.  Sometimes you have to bite the bullet.  With golf balls, I find that you get what you pay for.  Exception being the Snell line.

Agreed. What I don't understand is why would one buy balls like Snell, Vice, Kirkland, Cut, etc...if you can buy barely used non water balls for like $1.50 a ball...

 

I personally get them on Ebay...I have my people on there, but I just don't get it.

I agree with you with the exception of the Vice Pro+. That's been a really good ball for me. I bought about 12 dozen ProV1s during their annual loyalty campaign last month so I don't have to try to find a ball similar to the ball they're trying to copy. I just bought plenty of the prototype ball.

You'd be surprised how good the Snell MTB line is.  I have 8 boxes at home.  For 30 bucks a pop, it does just about everything the tour balls can do.  The MTB-X is firmer than most tour balls, but that's perfectly fine with me.

Haha! Hey I say try it, see what you think. didn't like the flight of it with wedges, it was shorter than my Tour BX with driver, had less spin around the green and didn't like the feel of it off the putter...but it is what it is!

That is the ONLY ball I haven't tried yet basically. Hope I find one in the wild...maybe ill give it a shot...but for now...Prov1 & Tour BX...personally don't like really firm balls...

Balls react differently to the handler (pun intended). If you're a high spin player then the Vice Pro+ might suck for you, while the BX's firmness would work better. The BX would rival the MTB-X, V1X Left Dash, and Chrome Soft X in firmness. For me, most other balls aren't as firm as those.
