Want some brand new golf balls? Hannah Holden has a rundown of everything being released in 2021

New golf balls 2021: Srixon

Can you believe this year’s Srixon AD333 is the tenth generation? Compared to previous generations this has lower compression to deliver better distance off the tee and enhanced feel around the greens.

The ball has a two-piece, ionomer construction. The fast layer core delivers ball speed and feel whilst the spin skin digs deep into wedge grooves to provide more spin. The 388 dimple pattern reduces drag and gives you a more penetrating ball flight.

The side stamp has also been improved for easier alignment. It is available in white and tour yellow.

  • RRP: £27 per dozen
  • Where once it was only acceptable in respectable golfing circles to use a brightly coloured ball in the fog (for some reason, it always had to be orange in these circumstances), we are now a much more colourful bunch.

    One obvious advantage is that you are much more likely to be able to identify your ball from a distance – and hopefully avoid the embarrassing and score-destroying mistake of playing the wrong ball. We’ve all done it at least once.

    Srixon have long been major players in the mid-market ball sector and their success has been built on models like the Soft Feel Brite.

    Available in red, orange and green, you get a highly distinctive and well-made ball that not only lasts the distance but goes the distance too.

    Srixon say that the Soft Feel Brite features their softest FastLayer Core – it is more resilient, snapping back into shape more quickly after impact for added ball speed, while dramatically reducing long game sidespin for increased accuracy. As you might guess from the name, this ball is designed to feel great off the club, whether with driver or your precision short-game tools.

    The days when distance balls felt like concrete to chip and putt with are thankfully long gone.

    In fact, the Soft Feel Brite’s performance on chips and pitches is what sets it apart. And at the price, it’s an excellent option for the club player once we can finally get back out on the course.

    • RRP: £25 per dozen
