The Srixon AD333 is soft ball designed to offer fantastic control without killing distance. Use what the pros do and shoot lower than you thought possible.
The balls were originally very popular stateside but are now capturing the imagination of the European tour as players start to think about pins and not greens.
Many other Srixon Soft Feel golf balls are popular among skilled players due to their reliable and high level of spin generation. Pick up your new Srixon golf balls at Foremost Golf.
Golf ball performance can be broken down into 4 primary categories: launch conditions, aerodynamics, durability and feel.
Feel and durability goals are fairly straightforward: the golf ball should feel soft and responsive yet remain durable and tough.
Launch conditions and aerodynamic performance are more complex - the properly engineered golf ball must spin, pierce, climb, cut fade, draw or sit differently depending on the club or shot.
During flight, the launch conditions of the golf ball interact with the aerodynamics of flight to determine the golf balls overall trajectory. The two primary aspects of aerodynamics are lift and drag.
Lift is the force that acts in the vertical plane and drag is the force that opposes the golf ball’s motion.
Unlike drag, lift needs to be optimised in order to produce the desired trajectory. Too much or too little lift can lead to a loss in distance.
Launch conditions describe exactly what the golf ball is doing immediately after impact.
The most critical launch conditions affecting performance are golf ball speed launch angle, backspin and sidespin. Golf ball speed is the most important factor in determining distance. Higher ball speed directly relates to increased distance.
All shots have backspin. Backspin is certainly helpful around the green for added control, but too much spin can reduce distance.
