Why Callaway SR3 ball

    Callaway’s SR (Speed Regime) is divided into three different balls. The SR-1 is for moderate swing speeds, the SR-2 is for athletic swing speeds and the SR-3 is for tour level swing speeds. The SR delivers distance and tour feel at the same time, which obviously is a must for tour players. The SR-3, is a five-piece ball, and is designed for tour-level swing speeds of 105 mph or more. This golf ball as well as the Chrome Soft, has been the ball of choice for the company’s PGA Tour and European Tour staff players, as well as better amateurs. For the SR-3, the HEX aerodynamic pattern is designed specifically to reduce drag at high ball speeds, increasing distance and accuracy. While a soft feel has not been a hallmark of Callaway tour balls in the past, the soft urethane cover of the SR-3 is as soft as last year’s Chrome +, producing a noticeably softer feel than the company’s other tour balls.

    Twenty years ago it was unthinkable that Titleist would ever relinquish its’ stranglehold on the golf ball market. However, statistics show that both Callaway and Taylor Made have been eating away at Titleist’s piece of the pie. Someday, I’m sure one of them will wrestle the title of “King of Balls” away from Titleist.
