124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2


Wilson Staff Model

This four-layer ball is plenty complex, but its most valuable characteristic might be what’s missing. What’s there: a core that’s firm enough to build speed but soft enough to curb spin on tee shots, two mantles that lower spin (the softer inner) and enhance velocity (the firmer outer) and a thin urethane cover that helps with distance but is still soft enough for high short-shot spin. What’s not there? The “R” version’s uncoated cover helps foster the tighter dispersion elite players demand.

Performance: 4/5
Innovation: 4.5/5
Demand: 1/5
