Here are the results of a distance test of the 3 types of balls in the game: 2pc, 3pc, and 4pc. The values shown are yardages for a full-spin 3 wood. Stats were adjusted to be identical when hitting each of the 3 types of ball:

Power 45, Impact 59, Stamina 35, Skill 259
(these include the ball stats)

As per other tests, the exact same pixels were hit for 100% and 0%, verified by a screen magnifier. Spin was set for all shots using 5x Shift-<Arrow>. Temperature was 25 degrees for all shots.

This was a test of a long shot. The distance gaps would be much smaller for the shorter shots. For example, the distance gap for a 6 iron, no spin, was only 3 yards for 2pc vs 4pc.

Action on green

The balls differ in how they react when hitting the green. The 4pc ball produces significantly more backspin than the 2pc ball. (A personal note... This is why I do not use 4pc balls. I dislike the hard backspin that is put on the ball.) This extra backspin is noticeable for all types of shots, even for no spin shots. For example, you would notice that a 2pc 6 iron shot, no spin, the 2pc 100% shot would "roll out" a couple of yards, while the 4pc 6 iron 100% shot would stop dead or even backup a tad, as if you had put backspin on it.
