The original Tour Soft was designed as a distance play in the category of softer-feeling golf balls. The follow-up to that product took things a step further. As always, golfers were looking for more distance but with a touch of short-game spin. To achieve both of those desires, Titleist engineers designed a larger core to provide the distance and surrounded it with a slightly firmer cover that works with the core to produce better short-game spin. What will likely go unnoticed by golfers but is what powers the ball’s distance is a new 342-dimple pattern that results in a more penetrating ball flight and a lower trajectory than some other balls in the category. That helps produce more rollout on tee shots for extra metres.
