The Curated Take
This ball is ideally designed for beginners. Players who are just getting into golf know that they are going to lose a bunch of balls on the course, so they want to spend as little as possible on balls. Usually, beginners buy Top Flight balls, which are typically $15/dozen. The problem with Top Flight balls is that they are hard as a rock. This makes it very difficult to control the distance and develop any sort of feel.
So, I encourage newer golfers to spend just a little more ($22/dozen) and get the Srixon Soft Feel balls. As a new and improving player, the soft feel is going to help build a better touch inside of 100 yards and on the putting green. Better touch means a higher likelihood of controlling the distance and getting shots closer to the hole, which inevitably leads to lower scores.
- The feel is super soft, like hitting a marshmallow.
- For a soft ball, the distance is impressive. There is minimal spin, so I could keep the flight low and penetrating.
- The durability of this ball is excellent. The ball can easily last a full round, if not more.
- This ball does not produce a lot of spin, especially with the scoring irons and wedges.
Overall, SOFT FEEL features our softest FastLayer Coreto date. FastLayer operates here just as it does in our most premium ball offerings.
Fast Layer gradually transitions from a softer inner core to a firm outer edge, behaving like a core with thousands of layers, giving you distance and great feel without compromise.
A more resilient core snaps back to shape more quickly just after impact. That added snap means more ball speed and more distance off the tee.
The 338 Speed Dimples featured on the all-new SOFT FEEL improve overall aerodynamics for better flight performance with drivers, woods, and irons. With just the right combination of dimple uniformity and dimple occupancy, Speed Dimples boost distance and fly straight, even in the toughest wind conditions.
