Callaway Golf’s Dr. Alan Hocknell discusses the Chrome Soft golf ball, and why it’s soft feel could be just what your game needs.
It’s no secret golf ball technology has skyrocketed in the past decade, giving more desirable shot trajectory and distance to all golfers everywhere. For the more skilled types, this often led playing the hardest feeling balls out there, but Callaway’s 2015 Chrome Soft golf ball changed that last year and they made one of the fastest growing golf balls in the game even more popular with an updated design in 2016.
Long story short, if you’re looking for a boost in your golf equipment this summer, the Callaway Chrome Soft golf ball could be a good place to start — no matter if you’re a 2 handicap or 20.
Dr. Alan Hocknell, Callaway Golf’s Head of R&D, talks with Jon Levy about how his team of engineers were able to combat “ballooning” and distance loss that soft golf balls typically encounter with higher swing speeds, while retaining the positive gains for those with lower swing speeds.
The secret? The combination of the ball’s dual-core and soft urethane cover, which drops spin rates from the tee while maintaining superior performance around the greens. Callaway’s engineers wanted a ball that can play well throughout the whole bag, and they definitely found it in the 2016 Chrome Soft.
