The game of golf has a long history. The modern version of the game dates back to the 15th century in Scotland. A ball-and-club game in which players attempt to hit a ball into a hole in the fewest possible strokes, golf is played on large courses of either nine or 18 holes. Modern golf equipment has evolved over time, and equipment such as golf balls now come in different variations.

There are three types of golf balls: two-piece, three-piece, and four-piece. The two-piece ball is a good choice for beginners, as it features a large inner core that helps it go farther off the tee and limits spin. The three-piece ball falls in between the two- and four-piece in terms of performance, providing distance while still allowing spin for shorter shots. The four-piece ball is meant for expert players, as it allows a great amount of spin and control of the ball’s landing.
