I have personally put the Callaway Supersoft golf ball in my bag, and I am currently testing to see whether this ball will make a difference to my game.  I certainly like the feel, but I am unsure if this ball is right for me with a 100 mph clubhead speed.  When I visit the PGA Merchandise Show later this month, and will personally talk to Callaway to get their thoughts on the subject of the “Soft Revolution.”  Watch this site for my report back in early February!  Thanks to Andrew Tursky of GolfWRX for this interesting article!
Is the "Soft Revolution" right for your game?

The Calloway Chromesoft is just one of many softballs on the market today.

 

Everything you need to know about Callaway’s new SuperSoft golf balls

When Callaway did market research on what golfers thought about the feel and the greenside spin of its SuperSoft golf balls, the results showed that 74 percent of golfers thought the feel was “just right.” Only 58 percent of golfers answered the same way about greenside control, however.

That’s why the new SuperSoft golf balls are made with a new “Tri-Ionomer” cover, which Callaway says gives the balls both a softer feel and more spin around the greens.

How much more spin are we talking about? On a 40-yard shot, Callaway testing showed the 2017 version of the SuperSoft launched with 5035 rpm of spin, while the 2015 version launched with 4950 rpm of spin. It’s change that Callaway’s Senior Director of Golf Ball R&D Dave Bartels says golfers should notice.

With all the golf ball choices out there in the marketplace right now, how do you know which golf ball is right for you?  

Today GOLF has taken all the guesswork out of the equation for you.  After testing hundreds of golf balls with almost every brand on the market, they have come up with the longest ball in three different price ranges and three different swing speeds.  If this data doesn’t help you choose a ball for your swing, I don’t know what will!

A question I am asked fairly often is, “Which ball is the best on the market?” Unfortunately, there is no best ball on the market. There is only the ball that best suits your particular game.  Like a lot of things, you need professional advice.  See your local golf professional who has done the research and will know which ball is right for your game. Another opinion is for you to hit different balls using a launch monitor and let the data tell you which ball goes further, higher or spins more.  Thanks to PGA Secretary Susy Whaley of PGA.com for this informative video!

Try different brands before you settle on a favorite.

 

A recent essay on GolfWRX.com from veteran golf ball designer Dean Snell (27 years with Titleist, TaylorMade and now his own company Snell Golf) makes the case that modern golf ball technology has endeavored to make the differences between all kinds of balls not that great—on the tee shot.

We think there can be subtle differences in distance, but the real differences in spin and performance.

(read: your ability to get the ball to land closer to your target) These subtle differences start to show up the closer you get to the green. The multilayer urethane cover balls (generally, the most expensive) provide more spin and control so shots get closer to the hole. Snell also notes that modern technology in the less expensive balls has made them softer, even softer feeling than the most expensive balls.

But feel is one thing and spin is another. During our Hot List process, the balls that continually received the highest marks from our player panelists were those that were the most expensive, specifically because of their performance around the greens.

We tested this idea out with some player testing of 50-yard pitch shots. The goal was to hit shots that flew most of the way to the hole and stopped quickly after a few bounces. Using a Foresight Sports GC2 launch monitor, we saw clear differences in launch and spin, as shown in this chart here. Generally, the expensive tour-type balls launched lower (29 degrees or less) and spun more (7,000 rpm or more), while the less expensive balls launched higher (30 degrees or more) and spun less (5,500 rpm or less).

I recently went out to give a playing lesson with one of my tour players who plays on the Canadian Tour. 

In checking my golf bag, I saw that I was low on golf balls.  Not having the time to get to the store to get a new box, I went to my wife’s bag and took a sleeve of balls from her bag.  Only once I had got to the tee did I notice that they were Lady Precepts made by Bridgestone.  As this was a playing lesson about my student and not about me, I decided just to play with them. 

WOW – what an eye-opener.  I hit this ball about 20 yards further than I hit my regular ball.  This continued throughout the round.  So when I saw this video with Phil Mickelson talks about the new softball from Calloway called the Chrome Soft, I thought that this would be worth a try for those of you looking for some extra yardage. 

I know, I know, Phil gets paid to promote Callaway.  But, I think any of the “soft” brands are worth looking into.  Test them out to see if they work for your game.
