When enhancing one attribute, golf-ball designers often have to compromise performance in another, except when it comes to improving a ball’s aerodynamics. If an aerodynamic pattern provides more distance, it’s essentially free yards because it’s not affecting anything else.

Using a “quadrilateral dipyramid pattern” with 346 dimples, the aerodynamic design is similar to that of the Tour Speed model but altered to provide more surface coverage to achieve a lower flight compared to the Tour Speed. This provides a distance boost. The large, (1.60 inches) soft-compression core is married to a thin proprietary ionomer blend cover that produces better greenside grab than typical non-urethane-cover balls.
