What is the best Golf Ball

Have you ever wondered but have always been too embarrassed to ask what is the best golf ball on the market regardless of price, sometimes talking to the professional in the pro shop or golf retailer it can get a bit daunting because you want to come across as a seasoned good playing golfer even if you are not – but you always seem to avoid asking the question?

As we know most golfers love to buy the latest technology for their golf game whether it be new golf clubs, new golf apparel, the most up to date distance measuring device, latest golf balls, the best golf shoes on the market, that new wiz-bang golf trolley or the latest gimmick to ultimately improve their golf game – their pursuit for the ultimate golf game is relentless trust me I see them every day of my working life at the golf club I work at and it is scary how much some golfers spend on golf merchandise hoping that their golf game is going to dramatically improve! What is the best golf ball - Golf Ball

Well in these series of articles I am going to look at all products that are available on the golf market starting with looking at what is the best golf ball on the market and if money was no object then which one would you buy, these are the golf balls that I would recommend.

What is the best golf ball

Without a doubt the best golf balls on the market are Titleist Pro V 1’s, they are used by most of the top touring golf professionals globally and win more golf tournaments using Pro V 1’s than any other golf ball on the market – however there are a couple of alternatives dependent on budget, those being the TaylorMade TP5 golf balls and also the Callaway Chrome Soft golf balls, this may seem like a lot of hogwash but golfers like their own brand of golf ball and that is why I am mentioning there are alternatives to the Titleist Pro V 1’s – but before I go into detail here are some lists of current tour players who play with Titleist, TaylorMade and Callaway golf balls:

Titleist Tour Players

The list of current tour professionals on the PGA Tour and European Tour using Titleist golf balls are Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Henrik Stenson, Rickie Fowler, Louis Oosthuizen, Adam Scott and Paul Casey but to name a few, and they are all currently in the top 30 in the world – so that fact alone speaks a thousand words!

TaylorMade Tour Players

Tour players who currently use TaylorMade golf balls are Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and last but not least Tiger Woods who is making is comeback shortly on the PGA Tour.

Callaway Tour Players

Tour players who currently play with Callaway golf balls are Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Jim Furyk, Daniel Berger, Marc Leishman, Branden Grace and Kevin Kisner.

If money was no object I would personally play with all three of the brands, but as with all golf balls they all have their flaws to contend with but I must stress they are minor flaws, the general complaints I get at the golf club is that this type of golf ball scuffs up more than that one, or that one is not as white as the other brand, this one still looks as good as new and I have played three rounds with it or this one scuffs up more when you have played out of the bunker with it – so pretty minor flaws but worth noting.

Titleist Pro V 1’s and Pro V1x golf balls

All round quality golf balls which give you distance, less spin, great ball trajectory, great feel around the green and also fantastic for putting.

TaylorMade TP5 golf balls

Another all-around quality golf ball with all the characteristics of the Titleist but I find it a more attractive golf ball which is pleasing to the eye, it does tend to scuff up when played out of bunkers a few times but all in all a great golf ball.

Callaway Chrome Soft golf balls

I really like the Callaway Chrome Soft regular golf balls and also the Chrome Soft TruVis which is great for playing when visibility is a bit overcast, both all-around great golf balls and even though it is in the same performance bracket as the Titleist and TaylorMade top end golf balls it has a slightly cheaper price point and well worth considering.

I hope that this article what is the best golf ball was of use to your golf game and if you have any questions regarding this article please do not hesitate to leave me a comment below I will be glad to respond to any comments left.

  1. Hi Al,

    Yes good comment, I agree with you that Srixon and Bridgestone make good golf balls as well, the point of the post was to highlight what the tour pro’s use and not the average golfer, but point taken and I will also do a review on the Srixon, Bridgestone and other potential golf balls that would suit amateur golfers alike. Thanks for the response and comment.
