Hot List Gold 2023

This softer-compression ball has the kind of cover played by tour players, so you can still get that same kind of greenside grab, but its overall softer construction (20 to 30 compression points less than the company’s Z-Star models) is enhanced by a soft intermediate mantle layer and a core that gets progressively firmer from the center outward. It’s designed to maximize distance potential and higher flight for non-tour-level swings (anyone north of 75 miles per hour).

The Q-Star Tour also uses the same cover coating as the tour-played model. This mixture creates a flexible urethane compound that’s designed to stay on the face more consistently to improve spin on chips and pitches.
