Finding the right golf ball for your game that you can trust and rely on is more important than you may think. Yet, anyone that takes pride in his or her golfing ability knows the importance of using the right golf ball. In a conversation with Vice Golf founders Ingo Duellmann, Rainer Stoeckl and American golf instructor Andrew Rice, we shed light into the darkness of the golf ball industry.
Golf balls have sparked of a lot of controversy. Nowadays, an exponentially increasing amount of golfers are on the search for the right golf ball, while the people who think that balls only need to be cheap go quiet more and more. Vice Golf co-founder Rainer Stoeckl and Andrew Rice agree that when “looking at the bigger picture, additional costs have nothing at all to do with a golf ball’s performance. It is the material and the production process that define the quality of a golf ball. Quality is found in the casing of the ball, it is in the urethane and the surlyn and the dimple pattern, not in the cost.”
“Using our Vice Ball DNA, golfers are able to play with their perfect ball in fair conditions without having to switch to an old marble before approaching water hazards”, claims founder and CEO Ingo Duellmann.
Ingo Duellmann, founder and CEO of Vice Golf, adds, “Any golfer will benefit from a high quality ball when you take into account feel, ball control and spin values. Many golf balls on the market today are very specific to one aspect of the game. While that adds something to one area of someone’s golfing ability, it takes away from another. This reduces the player´s ability to purposely shape a shot. It is a golf balls construction and characteristics that benefit a golfer on the course.”
“Looking at the bigger picture, additional costs have nothing at all to do with a golf ball’s performance. It is the material and the production process that define the quality of a golf ball”, says Vice Golf Co-Founder Rainer Stoeckl.
Here at Vice, we want to eliminate a players risk of buying the wrong ball for their game. That´s why we came up with a our “VICE BALL DNA” tool which asks six simple questions about your golf game and suggests the best Vice Golf ball for you. The questions asked regard previously favored ball models, average hitting length and preferences in your short game. The answers given are compared with the characteristics of all Vice Golf balls and then the player is matched with their ideal ball.
“The different ball models produced by Vice Golf are deliberately designed in a way that players of all abilities are catered to. Using this tool, golfers are able to play with their perfect ball in fair conditions without having to switch to an old marble before approaching water hazards,” explains Ingo Duellmann.
As the name suggests, this tool constructed by Vice Golf is responsible for matching a player with a golf ball that feels as if it had always been a part of them. This is the quickest and simplest way to ensure you are purchasing the right ball for your golf game.
