If your stash of golf balls is running low, now is a good time to load up with a fresh dozen or two as there are many new models now available to choose from. In fact, Titleist, which has made the No. 1 ball in golf for years, has new versions of its legendary Pro V1 and Pro V1x. And with that, here are a few other brands you can tee up the next time you hit the links:
TITLEIST PRO V1
The new Pro V1 is significantly longer than its predecessor and now just as long as the Pro V1x, and it continues to offer a more penetrating trajectory versus the Pro V1x’s high launch. Both balls are similar regarding spin with the driver, but the Pro V1x has more spin from mid-irons through the pitching wedge, while the Pro V1 has a softer feel.
BRIDGESTONE TOUR B X and TOUR B XS
Replacing the Tour B330, the Bridgestone Tour B X is engineered for low handicap golfers who seek feel and accuracy while the Tour B XS is built for low handicap golfers who seek feel and added distance. Meticulously designed for players who are looking to find their edge and play their best, the Bridgestone Tour B Series Balls represent the most innovative and performance oriented golf balls in Bridgestone Golf history.
TAYLORMADE TP5 AND TP5X
Players looking for superior performance with all the clubs in their bag may want to consider the newest five-layer ball from TaylorMade. Hitting driver and long-iron shots, golfers will notice higher trajectory and less spin, resulting in improved distance and straighter ball flight. Because the five-layer composition essentially creates two balls in one, the TP5 and TP5x also perform exceptionally well inside 100 yards – the soft outer cover is paired with a rigid inner cover to help generate spin and increase control around the greens.
CALLAWAY GOLF CHROME SOFT
Callaway bills its Chrome Soft as “the ball that changed the ball,” and PGA Tour players are praising the performance from tee to green. The new Chrome Soft X offers the same high-performance standards with longer distance, soft feel, piercing trajectory, workable flight and exceptional control around the greens. Meanwhile, the Chrome Soft with Truvis Technology has exploded in popularity since its introduction two years ago. With hexagon patterns similar to a soccer ball, the improved visibility can help players better understand how the ball rolls and spins.
The Volvik S4 is an option for any advanced player with a driver swing speed over 105 mph looking for a leg up over the competition. With a 105-compression double urethane cover, the ball offers low spin with the driver and extreme durability that has made it the preferred ball of PGA Tour star Bubba Watson.
Now in its 4th generation, the new Srixon Q-Star golf ball is ideal for golfers who demand balanced performance from a more durable, two-piece ball. The Q-STAR features a lower-compression Energetic Gradient GrowthTM Core, a new third generation Spin Skin™ coating, and a new, more efficient 338 Aerodynamic Speed Dimple™ Pattern. These three technologies combine to deliver balanced performance: longer, more accurate driving distance, better iron control, and improved greenside spin.
