The design elements you mention indeed do it all. A softer insert for example can make a firmer ball feel softer at impact but its lighter weight also allows for more perimeter weighting forgiveness and stability. Odyssey’s White Hot and Scotty Cameron’s aluminum inserts do this admirably.
You want Tour-caliber performance with a soft feel from driver through sand wedge. Four-piece construction with soft rubber-rich tech for enhanced feel. DuPont HPF mantle layer for more spin and overall shot control. High-resilience outer mantle for faster ball speeds and more distance on long shots. Cast urethane cover with new 362 dimple pattern.
After failing to play his way into the Tour Championship Jordan Spieth now faces a punishment from the PGA Tour. His penancea $20k fine and/or a three-tournament suspension. Because Spieth didn’t qualify for East Lake he will violate the PGA Tour’s scheduling rule that mandates Tour members either play a new tournament (one they haven’t played in four years) or tee it up in 25-plus events. Spieth has done neither in the 2017-18 season.
