You want a ball with a Tour-proven track record that also provides a slightly softer feel on all shots.

Third-generation Thin Skin coating for improved short-game spin even from rough.
While there can be advantages for a very fast swinger (see “Tour player”) to use a slightly higher-compression design in terms of energy transfer and ball speed most modern golf balls will produce relatively similar driving distances for the vast majority of players.
