Mizuno is launching their all new 5-piece golf ball, the next generation of the Cross Eight ball on September 10th. Fresh off the success of their first ever professional win with their golf ball, when Japanese Ladies Tour star Ajane Iijima won using the Mizuno MP-801X ball in June. This new golf ball the Cross Eight 501 will feature a 5-piece construction that claims to be soft and responsive for short, slower swing speed shots, and deep off the tee. The balls core progresses from soft to hard from the inside out to create a ball that spins less on tee shots thanks to higher swing speeds activating the inner, softer cores – to a ball that will zip on the greens due to the harder mantle and outer cover.
The distance comes from the compression of the cool cross ribbed inner core on impact, and a high COR. Several Mizuno pros are already playing this ball, keep an eye out for these this fall. Take a look at the core section below:
