It may be a cliche but that doesn't make it any less true - the ball is the only piece of equipment you use for every single shot during the course of a round.
That makes it a vital piece of kit and if you think every ball out there performs the same (well, it's round and has dimples) then you are mistaken.
If you asked a multitude of Tour pros what is the most important bit of equipment to them many would answer the ball. They all fly differently, feel different and react differently on the greens.
So with that in mind we put TG's gear duo Jonathan Greathead and David Connor on the spot and asked them to name their favourite ball of 2011. Watch the video below to find out their answer.
