Better Golf Balls for Better Junior Players

Longer Off the Tee

Gain 4-5 yards off with junior driver swing speeds and launch conditions vs. “Pro” balls designed for elite adults with faster swings.

Soft Around the Greens

With Urethane covers and multi-piece construction, our balls spin like “Pro” balls around the green and feel great off the club.

More Control

Softer compression means the ball stays on the clubface longer, increasing the ability to influence the flight of the ball.

    Excellent, high-quality product

    I bought a dozen of each to see which my son liked better. We are still testing, but the packaging and product are high-quality. Kid's 11, but tall and stronger, so he could use either ball. My son really likes both and is hitting beautiful iron shots with them. I'm no tour pro, but I've played a round with the M1 and it plays like any other premium ball I've used. They didn't prevent me from losing one in the water and one in the woods though. Not the ball's fault.

    Can't wait to try them in tournament play

    I liked both. My swing speed is currently 70-72 mph. The M1s still had great spin around the green, but I thought the feel of the M1 was more like the Pro V1.

    These are good

    We put the Merit balls up against Bridgestone and Callaway. We found the distance to be equal to the Bridgestone and further than the Callaway balls. Also, we think kids like to buy balls with fun designs.

    I'm a little biased...

    I am reviewing the golf balls that my Dad and I made, so I am a little biased. And OF COURSE I'm giving them 5 stars!!!

    But I really do love these balls. They're exactly what we were hoping for when we started the project. You're going to want to be one of the first to play them in a tournament. I hope you try them and like them as well.

    12 yr old loves them

    My 12 yr old son loves the distance he is getting with these golf balls compared to the adult ones he was using. Thanks
