Srixon Soft Feel Vs. Titleist Tour Soft Golf Balls Comparison Overview
Not getting the distance you need off the tee? While having a fast swing speed always helps the problem could be with your gear.
There are a lot of golfers out there who are using golf balls that are not spec’d for their play style.
This can result in a lot of frustration not just from the tee; but all over the course as well. To help you discover a ball that will work for you, we have put together the following comparison overview of two popular yet different golf balls.
Titleist Tour Soft Golf Balls Overview
The Titleist Tour Soft golf balls offer a good balance of distance off the tee and short game feel in a premium-grade ball.
We were a bit wary of these balls because they are touted as premium-grade but have a 2-layer design. We’re glad to say that most of our fears were allayed after testing them. First of all, off the deck these balls fly far.
Our testers (all of whom have swing speeds 100+ MPH) were able to get an average of 280 yards off the tee with these balls.
Off the deck the Tour Soft balls yielded similar distances. These balls have a large 1.6 inch core which does a great job of preserving energy from the club face and keeping spin rates low. They also compress nicely off the driver face.
Short game spin levels were a bit low but you still get good feedback and feel from these balls with your short irons and wedges.
Srixon Soft Feel Golf Balls Overview
The Srixon Soft Feel balls produced similar distance off the tee and had the same shortcomings as the Tour Soft balls around the green.
Some of our testers were getting max distances of 284 yards off the tee but the average distance hovered closer to 275 yards. So distance difference off the tee is negligible in our opinion.
The Srixon Soft Feel balls keep spin rates low on all clubs so they are about as workable as the Tour Soft balls around the green; which isn’t very.
The Srixon Soft Feel balls are firmer than the Tour Soft balls which we preferred. The launch on these balls was also higher.
It basically comes down to launch and feel with these balls. If you want higher launch and firmer feel, go with the Srixon Soft Feel balls. If you want a softer feel, try the Titleist Tour Soft balls.
