We shouldn’t be shocked by the fact that Callaway has come out with a new and improved golf ball in 2022. Whenever a new year dawns, they never cease to disappoint when it comes to equipment. 


What’s surprising is the Hex Tour Soft has remained somewhat under the radar so far this year. A few folks have put it in their bag and swear by it, but it seems overshadowed by some of the other balls in its class so far. My guess is that won’t last too long.

Key Features

Improved core technology improves spin separation for longer, straighter shots.

High-resiliency cover affords more spin on short shots for increased control.

Low compression improves feel.

Design and Technology

The first thing that comes to mind when we think of this golf ball is the Hex name. If you’re familiar with Callaway golf balls, you’ve probably heard about the Hex dimple pattern.


 Each dimple is shaped like a hexagon and proven to be aerodynamically superior. This is really nothing new for Callaway but it’s worth noting.The core of the Hex Tour Soft is designed to maximize distance.


 Compared to previous generations of this ball, this core is more reactive and explosive. That’s good news if you like distance with your long clubs. 

Distance isn’t the whole story with the Hex Tour Soft though. The new and improved high-resiliency cover is engineered to provide spin and feel on short shots where you need it most. 


Even though you might not zip back wedges like the balata balls of yesteryear, the Hex Tour Soft still affords plenty of control.


Lastly, this ball’s low compression gives you the soft, solid feel most golfers desire on every shot, whether it be a hybrid or a three-foot putt.


PROS

  • Improved core and cover increase distance, spin, and feel.
  • Price point is far more attractive than other balls on the market.
  • Durability surpasses previous models and other, similar golf balls currently available.

CONS

  • Might not be the best ball for players with high swing speeds.
  • Ball has lower spin rates on short irons and wedges which might not be preferable for better players.
  • Other balls might be technologically advanced.

Our Experience

I’ve always loved Callaway golf balls but am more versed in their top-end balls like the Chrome Soft.

With that said, there are plenty of guys in my regular group that play the Hex Tour Soft and swear by it. These guys are higher handicappers with slower clubhead speed, and swings that are far from perfect. 

But they almost unanimously tout this ball’s performance in terms of both distance and feel. 

They also think this is one of the most durable balls they’ve found as well. These cats hit the occasional tree, cart path, rock, and cactus, and say that this ball more than stands up to some abuse. 

The price is also attractive for them. If they had to replace a brand new ProV1 every time they scuffed it up, they might not be able to afford golf as a hobby.
