Key Feature Glossary

Category

Tour Performance: Drive that long Par 4 and stick even the most impossible approach shot with help from a Tour Performance golf ball. These multi-layer golf balls are specially designed for players with faster swing speeds so they can maximize distance off of the tee while maining enhanced control around the green.

Premium Performance: Ideal for average golfers with moderate swing speeds. These golf balls offer many of the popular technologies found in Tour balls, while still tailoring themselves to a slightly slower swing. Enhanced distance, better spin, softer feel and multi-layer construction are all characteristics you'll see in Premium golf balls.

Value Performance: These golf balls complement a slower to average swing speed and are great for individuals learning the game of golf. Softer compression and flight correcting technologies that help reduce hooks or slices, make it easier to keep the ball in play. Perfect for the golfer who wants to stretch their dollar a little further.

Performance

Ball Speed: Achieving a high golf ball speed is a key contributing factor to maximizing distance and carry off of the tee. Matching your swing with the correct golf ball compression will result in longer, straighter shots that stay true to their target.

Carry: Drives with high carry result in additional yardage. This added distance can be the difference between landing in a water hazard or sand trap and landing safely on the green or fairway.

Control/Spin: Minimizing spin off the tee results in a higher golf ball trajectory and longer drives while maximizing spin around the green resulting in shorter putts and lower scores. Multi-piece constructed golf balls offer both of these technologies in a single package.

Distance: Specially designed with distance in mind. Aerodynamic dimples and multi-piece, golf ball layers create longer drives and shorter approach shots.

Durability: Golf ball surface blemishes can affect flight path, spin or launch angle, resulting in poorer overall performance. As golf ball technologies advance, cover materials have become stronger and more resilient to cuts, scuffs and marks.

Feel/Compression: An important attribute in any golf ball - the perfect feel is necessary to ensure long, accurate shots and instill confidence in the player. Softer golf balls (70-80 compression) offer more spin with low irons and wedges, providing greater stopping abilities on the green. Harder golf balls (90+ compression) create less spin off the tee with the driver and long irons, providing further overall distance.

Core

 

2-Piece Construction: A harder, faster and more durable ball that produces less overall spin. Typically have a thicker cover than most 3, 4, 5 and 6-piece balls.

3-Piece Construction: Lower spin off the tee for increased distance; more spin around the green for better control and feel.

4-Piece, 5-Piece & 6-Piece Construction: Smaller synthetic core with 3-5 middle layers and an extremely thin cover. Featuring a soft feel and higher spin rates, similar to that of 3-piece golf balls. Golfers with higher swing speeds tend to benefit the most from these additional layers.

 

 

 

 

Cover Material

 

 

 

 

Golf Ball Comparison Chart

Ionomer: Similar to Urethane, but harder resulting in greater distance with less greenside spin ability that's inherent in Urethane covers.

Iothane: Exceptionally soft, yet durable, and shear-resistant. Helps produce speed for greater distance and touch around the green.

Surlyn: Extremely durable, synthetic and one of the main material used in golf ball covers.

Trionomer: A unique blend of materials built to maximize ball speed and promote lower driver spin for longer, straighter drives.

Urethane: Softer than Surlyn and offers greater feel and control over the ball. A synthetic material usually found on multi-layer golf balls that provide high-spin performance and greater durability.

Color

The game of golf is ever changing and provides players plenty of opportunities to show their personality out on the course. Unique club crowns, bright clothing and colorful golf balls all give players the ability to add some character to their everyday round of golf.

Classic White: A standard choice for the more traditional golfer. Offering all of the most up-to-date golf ball technologies such as specially shaped dimples, more aerodynamic dimples or slice/hook reducing dimples.

Yellow, Orange, Green and more: Perfect for the golfer who wants to be bold and daring. These brightly colored golf balls add a splash of color to your swing, while providing increased viability in the tee box, when addressing the ball and during flight.

Pink: Ideal for the female golfer who wants to add a feminine touch to her next shot. Specially constructed, with lower compression, to help ladies achieve maximum distance off of the tee and from the fairways.
