Callaway updated its flagship premium golf balls, the Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X, in 2020. The focus was on getting more speed from a larger core, creating a higher launch on approach shots and maintaining greenside spin. For most golfers, higher-flying shots create a steeper descent angle, and that can help players stop the ball faster on the greens for enhanced distance control.

However, some players create excessive spin both off the tee and from the fairway, so Callaway is expanding the Chrome Soft family with the introduction of the Chrome Soft X LS for those players.

The Chrome Soft X, a four-piece ball with a urethane cover, is the most-played Callaway ball on the PGA Tour, and it was the inspiration for the Chrome Soft X LS. The new low-spin version also features a large core, a dual mantle system and a proprietary urethane cover to enhance spin around the greens.

To reduce spin off the tee, Callaway gave the Chrome Soft X LS a different dimple pattern. Yes, the dimples are still hexagonal, but the new pattern decreases drag, Callaway said, to reduce spin on fast-swinging shots.

The Chrome Soft X LS will be available in white and yellow, and there will be white and yellow versions available with Callaway’s Triple Track alignment system as well.
