How To Compress A Golf Ball

Being able to compress a golf ball will give you lots of benefits on the golf course that you never even realised.

PGA pro Kendle McCrossan explains what compression is and how selecting the right golf ball can give you the better performance from the first tee shot.

Getting more of the golf club in contact with the ball will help you compress the golf ball more and create more distance. There are some practice drill you can do on the range or even at home before you get on the golf course involving getting your hands ahead of the ball at impact.
