Golf Ball Reviews and Expert Guides for Golfers

Our golf experts have brought their heads together to bring high quality golf ball product reviews and guides for you.

We’ve made golf ball reviews that will help you find the best ball for your playing style. In this article I linked professionally-made guides that will answer your golf ball-specific questions.

Many golfers play only one brand of golf ball in all conditions, but not me. I play under so many different course conditions, sometimes more than one a day, that one ball just doesn’t give me the performance I expect. 

Here are my favorite 5 golf balls, and why I might choose one for one day, and another on a different day. Full disclosure: 3 index with a 100 mph swing, 120 yard wedge, 160 yard 7 iron and 270 driver yardage. 

#1. Titleist ProV 1 Yellow


Most Popular
Titleist Pro V1 Yellow Golf Balls

Obviously the most popular golf ball on the professional golf tour, my sense is that if it’s good enough for the pros, it sure is good enough for me. This is a medium compression golf ball that sports one of the best overall performances on the course.  

Great distance, superb feel around the green, this is a very high spinning ball that will grab and spin when flying into the green. 

Titleist is also known for a very stable manufacturing process that creates very consistent balls within each sleeve. If it’s a Titleist, you know exactly what quality you are going to get (plus the cool value). 

When I am playing at my best, no question this ball is a great choice for me. When I am not playing very well, I look to others.

#2. Callaway Chrome Soft Truvis Red


Callaway Golf Chrome Soft Truvis Prior Generation (Red/White)

This ball has an amazing feel off of my driver and irons.  A well struck ball promotes excellent confidence and feel on the course. 

This ball has a soft feel to it, so it tends to fly straighter than many, but also has a very high spin rate for control around the green. Always easy to spin your high irons, getting great backspin is simple, much to the delight of your friends. An added bonus for this golf ball is the red, soccer ball-like red color patches placed around the surface that help your brain more easily determine the distance of the ball from your fingers.

This feature is great in low light or a very hazy day to avoid mis-strikes and it works! The feel around the green is good, but the feel off the putter can be a little soft for my liking. Better to put this ball away when my putting is going south and I just can’t get that normal feel for my putter.

#3. Titleist TruFeel in Yellow


Titleist TruFeel Golf Balls, Yellow, (One Dozen)

Many may find it strange to see a non-premium golf ball on this list, but I really like this round piece of equipment. I get great distance from my driver and my irons. 

No loss in distance here! This is listed as a softer distance ball and I really like the feel of this ball off of my irons.  

It also is one of the straightest flying balls on this list and works very well on a cold or windy day, it performs when the weather is a factor. 

The other reason for taking up room in my bag is they are inexpensive and I don’t get saucy when I lose a few of these on courses where I tend to lose too many balls. The yellow color also makes the ball easy to spot in the air and in the grass. For me, this is a well manufactured, easy to play ball with a great value!

#4. Bridgestone Tour B RX Yellow Golf Balls


Bridgestone 2020 Tour B RX Golf Balls 1 Dozen, Yellow

This golf ball is one of the best all-around golf balls I have ever played. It has a low compression of 75, but definitely doesn’t feel too soft on the course or on the putter. I wouldn’t hesitate to tee this golf ball up anytime or anywhere.

Around the greens, the Tour B RX ball has a very positive and controllable feel that imparts on me a real confident strike. Off the putter, this ball has a soft, but not too soft, impact that feels great! 

Since I favor hitting golf balls that have a yellow color, this ball complies perfectly and is easy to see high in the air or in the higher grass. The actual yellow color, to me, always seems a bit faded than others, but that is a very minor detail that might be a plus to some.

Vice Pro Plus Neon Green


Vice Pro Soft Golf Balls, Lime (One Dozen)

The Vice Pro Plus golf ball has the highest compression of any golf ball on this list at 93. This ball has an excellent distance off the driver and irons and is a real performer on the course. It’s neon green color has a wow factor and always gets comments on its dramatic looks. A real stunner! As with most of the premium balls on my list of favorites, this ball has excellent spin characteristics with my irons and wedges. 

I can get it to spin back on the green with little effort. Another great benefit of this ball is the positive feel off of the putter, it feels slightly firmer than others, but I still strike it with confidence. Since I have to buy these balls directly from their website or Amazon, these balls are the second least expensive ball on this list, making it easy on the wallet when it comes time to refill my golf bag.

Golf ball reviews and favorite ball guides containing expert information and research

As you can see, I really do sport more than one favorite golf ball in my bag, since on the course there are many more conditions with which to contend than one ball can deliver. Some balls I pull out when I am at my best, some when I am not exactly feeling the golf groove.  Some balls work well when the weather is not quite what I was hoping for and I have to deal with cold weather or high winds. 

I even have a favorite golf ball when I just want to wow my playing partners and friends. Just like your golf game, you have to be ready to adjust when the time comes!
