What makes a good golf ball

There are 2 types of golf balls one with Surlyn covers (cheaper & harder) and ones with Urethane covers (more expensive & softer).

Most golf balls range between 50 – 100 in compression, lower compression balls tend to be softer and compress more to create more distance. Higher compressed balls offer more control and are used by advanced players who produce faster swing speeds.
