Spin is something you hear mentioned a lot in the golf work, but not everybody really understands what it is or how it works. Understanding spin and knowing what level of spin is best for your playing style will help improve your overall game.

A ball with lower spin will travel through the air straighter than one with a higher spin. It is also not likely to move as far in the air, but will roll further once it hits the ground. Low spin balls are particularly recommended to those players who have trouble getting much distance on the ground and who tend to slice the ball.
Mid-spin golf balls are best for the widest range of golf players. Golf balls with middle spin give you good distance with a reasonably soft feel.
Golf balls with high spin will carry a longer distance through the air. The higher the spin, generally speaking, the less control you have but you will get further distance.
