Callaway's new Hex Chrome+ golf ball helped Sang Moon Bae to his first PGA Tour win.
Sang Moon Bae, winner of the HP Byron Nelson, used one of Callaway's newest golf balls in his victory: the Hex Chrome-plus.
Used by players like long-hitting Gary Woodland since it was introduced on Tour a couple months ago, the four-piece ball has a dual mantle that reduces spin off the tee - and thus increases distance - along with a soft cover that helps with control.
"The Chrome-plus combines our lowest spinning core with our HBT cover," said Mike Sposa, Callaway PGA Tour representative at the Bay Hill Invitational in March. "Guys are getting the same distance off the tee, they're getting the same distance with their long irons, mid-irons. And as you get inside a buck-twenty and around the green, they're feeling that soft core. It feels different coming off the wedges, it feels different coming off the putter. And they like it a lot."
