Callaway Officially Introduces Chrome Soft And Chrome Soft X Golf Balls
Golf Balls Feature a New Graphene-Infused Dual SoftFast™ Core

CARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Callaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY), golf's #1 brand in total hard goods and a leading innovator in golf equipment and technology, today announced it will launch new Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X Golf Balls. These golf balls will be available at retailers nationwide on February 16, and both will be offered in the Company's popular Truvis line (also available on February 16).

Chrome Soft Golf Balls combine Tour-proven performance with unparalleled feel and exceptional mis-hit forgiveness. One of several new features, a Graphene-infused Dual Soft Fast Core has a larger inner core to maximize compression energy while a) minimizing driver-spin and b) promoting high launch for long distance.

"We've innovated at every layer, starting with our groundbreaking new Graphene Dual SoftFast Core," said Dr. Alan Hocknell, SVP, R&D, Callaway Golf. "The result is an extremely fast and soft-feeling ball that promotes high-launch and low spin off the tee for long distance, and incredible shot-stopping spin around the green."

The Chrome Soft golf balls have helped establish Callaway as the fastest growing major equipment company in the golf ball category since 2013.

Key Features:
Fast Ball Speeds & Low Spin Off The Driver
New Graphene-infused Dual Soft Fast Core with a new, larger inner core maximizes compression energy while minimizing driver-spin and promoting high launch for long distance.

Distance & Control Through The Bag
Premium dual-core construction promotes more distance off of your longer clubs, and more control off of mid-irons, short-irons and wedges.
