The Wilson Staff FG Tour is a 4 piece urethane golf ball, which delivers best in class spin, excellent distance off the tee and an unmatched soft feel, being the lowest compression tour ball available today. To make a long story short, if you're looking for strong performance and soft feel in every facet of the game, the Wilson Staff FG Tour should be on your short list. And to prove my point, keep in mind that Golf Digest's Hot List awarded a gold to the Wilson Staff FG Tour, proving they occasionally, even they get things right. Joke aside, the Wilson Staff FG Tour has a compression rating of 70, which means it's one of the softest golf balls you'll ever feel. The low compression thing will become noticeable in the long game, where the Wilson Staff FG Tour boasts that famous compress and explode feel, which is more poignant here compared to other tour balls. However, the ball is still soft with the putter, and provides awesome distance control. In the long game, the Wilson Staff FG Tour plays excellently in the wind, with very good ball speed off the driver and medium spin. Needless to say, the Wilson Staff FG Tour is also delivering with flying colors in the short game, providing plenty of spin around the green. Who this ball is for, you may ask? The answer is simple: if you're a better player looking for a tour level ball with a softer feel, the Wilson Staff FG Tour should be on your short list.
