Choosing the Correct Golf Ball

I am a 62 year old woman and I play golf about 3 times per week. My swing speed is 83.What would be the best golf ball for me to use for the right compression?

The answer to choosing the correct golf ball for your swing speed would be one that is individually fit for you. The only company that does these type of fittings is Bridgestone Golf Fitting Challenge.

The event is free and offers you a tour experience. By using the "Science Launch Eye Monitor" they will recommend either a Bridgestone/Precept ball or confirm the ball that you're currently playing is correctly fit.

To find a fitting event nearest you, check out their schedule at Bridgestone Fitting Challenge

If you are unable to attend one of their fittings you can still fill out information based on the current ball that you use and they will recommend a ball that suits your game.

You can fill out this form at Bridgestone Ball Selection Guide.

As for my personal recommendations there are 3 specific brands that I believe will fit nicely within your swing speed. The features are listed below.

  • The Precept IQ+ prides itself upon being the softest ball on the market. This would be an excellent ball in terms of distance and feel.

  • As for the Srixon Soft Feel Lady ball it is designed specifically for your swing speed. In addition, it has a super soft core which provides a soft feel for all shots.

  • Finally, the Callaway Solaire ball was designed for slower swing speeds that will provide optimal carry and increased distance. It is also a ball that has a soft core that produces feel.

In conclusion, all 3 balls would be excellent choices for your swing speed. They all have a soft cover that will enhance your feel for all shots and maintain control around the greens.

If you would like to purchase any of 3 brands, just click on either of the pictures below.

If you decide to choose another brand or golf ball make sure it has a soft cover. Also, if possible check to see if there is a swing speed range listed on the golf ball that matches yours. By ensuring that you have chosen the correct golf ball for your game you should notice an improvement in your scores.

I hope this will help you on your quest to finding the best ball for your game. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please fill out the comment form below.

Bo, I wanted to thank you for your help so far with my golf game. I wanted to let you know that I shot a 75 the other day in a tournament round, my best round ever. I had 32 total putts and NO 3 putts. I definitely couldn't have done that before. Thanks again and I'll be back in touch soon to get some more lessons lined up.


Bo I just wanted to tell you about another tournament I played in. I went out and played and shot a 75 which is one of my best rounds this year so I think everything is coming together. I've been making alot of birdies lately and just wanted to thank you for everything!

I played in a tournament when I got back from camp and shot 76 and came in fourth. I feel much more confident on the course with my mental thoughts. I used the tips you wrote down on that sheet and they have helped me alot.
