In the game of golf, there are two types of golf balls. They differ according to the outer-covering material used. The two materials are balata and surlyn.
1. Balata: These balls have a softer covering, designed for increased accuracy. They have a shorter life, and are the more expensive of the two.
2. Surlyn: This material creates a ball with a harder covering. They are designed for greater distance as opposed to accuracy. The covering being harder and, therefore, more durable, surlyn-covered balls have a longer life, and are less expensive than those made with balata.
