An enhanced Dimple-Cluster design is a key factor in the new Mizuno JPX-S golf ball, which promises to convert increased ball speed into extra yards.

With the new design, there are now 566 dimples in total – 54 more than on the original JPX models – further boosting the ball’s ability to maintain its flight for longer.

Through softening the core of the three-piece ball, Mizuno’s ball
engineers have not only been able to enhance the feel of the JPX-S at
impact, but also deliver increased initial ball speed for the majority
of golfers.

“We call this ‘Balanced Performance’, as every measurable performance aspect of the Mizuno JPX-S
has evolved without sacrifice of another – speed, feel, spin,
aerodynamics or durability,” said Tetsuya Kanayama, director of Mizuno

But it’s not just slower swing speeds who will benefit from the
softer-compression core. Mizuno’s testing produced some interesting
results at slightly faster swing speeds, too.

Japan Tour player Nobuhito Sato, for example, was able to carry the
Mizuno JPX-S around 255 yards with the driver – on average 18 yards
longer than his normal MP-S tour ball.

“Although Sato isn’t a long hitter by tour standards, his driver
clubhead speed of 102 mph is comfortably more than most amateurs,” said
Alex Thorne, European Tour operations manager.

“This softer compression Mizuno JPX-S ball is going to produce greater yardage for the majority of players.”
