Callaway Ball Cross Section - Innermost Layer Off Center

I've been noticing posts like this in my social feed, where you see the cross section of the ball and the middle layer is off center. Maybe I dunno, 1/500 are like this? Or not? How does this effect performance full swing and putting?

Callaway CEO didn't necessarily claim the counterfeit card.  

These guys tend to think Callaway possibly doesn't have the same levels of quality control that other brands do

I don’t trust MGS re:Callaway.

I'm sure they have some bias.

12 of the 14 clubs in my bag are Callaway.  I also play Callaway balls.  I'm not particularly happy about deciding to play Phil Mickelson's brand, and I'm not happy about how off-center this Callaway ball was, but it is what it is.  I listened to this podcast a couple weeks ago and from what I remember, the guy they were interviewing who had done the research was pretty careful not to bash Callaway.  He considered the off-center more of a general problem with all golf ball manufacturers (the worst example of which they found was the one Callaway chrome soft ball).  They found examples of an off-center core in a wide variety of balls.  They urged manufacturers to spend more time with quality control and less time coming up with marketing gimics.

Hmmm, I just bought 24 Callaway Hex Tour Soft at Costco, haven't seen this problem I don't think. I've played the Chrome Soft and never experienced a problem, we'll see I guess. Anyone play this Hex Tour Soft ball?
