2020 Hottest Golf Balls

Whether you want to play with a classic, colourful or a golf ball with a design, the latest and greatest 2020 golf balls come in a variety of looks and styles. And yes, they’re still as performance-focused as ever.

The emergence of visual aid technology has had a lot of manufacturers paying closer attention to what’s on the outside of the golf ball but most importantly, they haven’t forgotten that the core of a golf ball is what makes it standout. This year performance meets pizazz, with an exciting lineup of golf balls that will catch your eye and get your year rolling.

TaylorMade TP5 & TP5X PIX 2.0

The brain-child of Rickie Fowler and the TaylorMade R&D team, have developed the new TP5 & TP5X Pix 2.0. This new golf ball uses visual aid technology to assist players with their putting alignment, while continuing to be a premium ball used by Tour professionals. Equipped with a urethane cover, a Tri-Fast core, and made from five layers for greater distance and feel, the most notable feature of the TP5 & TP5X Pix 2.0 is its visual aid technology, Motion Triangle. Unlike the parallel lines that are typically used for putting alignment, TaylorMade’s visual aid takes on a new shape, literally.

If you’re wanting to play something a little more out there and need a break from the plain white ball, this is surely one to consider. The Motion Triangle decals are intriguing without being overwhelming, making this ball just unconventional enough to raise a few eyebrows.

Titleist AVX

Joining alongside the Pro V1 and Pro V1x in Titleist’s elite performance echelon, the AVX (Alternative VX) delivers an exciting new premium option. The AVX delivers the lowest spin rate, lowest ball flight, and softest feel of the three VX models, a compelling combination that is made possible by its larger core and thinner, exclusively designed urethane elastomer cover. The final product is a testament to Titleist’s renowned R&D, as the AVX has swiftly made its mark as one of the best balls on the market.

If you’re a golfer who is serious about your game or are looking to reduce ball spin for straighter shots, you’ll want to invest in this premium ball.

Volvik VIVID

Looking to stand out from the crowd? Wanting to add a little flare to your game? Volvik’s VIVID balls will undoubtedly perform on both fronts. Coming in an array of colours, nine to be exact, these technicolour balls aren’t just pretty to look at, they perform well too. Specifically engineered for golfers with moderate swing speeds, these balls offer a solid mid-market solution.

If you’re wanting to make your mark in the group by standing out, then give these a try.

Srixon Z Star

Now in its sixth iteration since debuting, the Z Star delivers a phenomenal blend of short game spin and feel, combined with serious distance off the tee. Using new FastLayer technology, the ball’s core delivers a serious pop off the clubface, while its new cover provides greater elasticity that digs deep into grooves for increased traction. The result is a ball that feels sticky on wedges, but is firm and fast off of longer clubs.

Is it for me?

This is a mid-compression ball, meaning it benefits players who have average swing speeds. If you’re looking for something that offers a nice middle-ground between firm distance and soft spin, put a sleeve of these in the bag.

Callaway Chrome Soft Triple Track

Trying to make a ball that feels soft, but still offers a lot of speed—that’s the challenge Callaway faced with its new Chrome Soft ball. To address the situation, Callaway created a new high-speed core and dual mantle system that offers superior distance from your longer clubs, while continuing to use a great feeling urethane cover that reacts to your short game. Once you bomb it down the middle and spin one close, Callaway’s Triple Track visual aid helps ensure you’ll get the putt started on the correct line.

Is it for me?

The Triple Track is a key visual feature that some people are going to love, while others might find it a touch too busy. If you need help lining up your putts, give this a try.

Bridgestone Tour B XS

If it’s good enough for Tiger, it’s probably good enough for the rest of us. New to this model is its REACTIV cover, a “smart urethane” material that responds differently depending on the force of impact—rebounding more quickly on a driver swing and offering a softer touch on wedge shots. But it’s not all about soft spin, the Tour B XS also utilizes a Gradational Compression Core and Active Acceleration Mantle to promote distance. Whether you’re greenside, or going for the green in two, this ball is ready to perform.

Is it for me?

If you’re a serious player with some serious swing speed––over 105 mph–– then the Tour B XS is engineered with your game in mind. But if you’re in the majority of golfers who don’t get the club moving that fast, try the Tour B RX or RXS.

Wilson Duo Soft +

Soft around the greens, delicately so, but long and durable off the tee––that’s what Wilson endeavoured to create with their Duo Soft+ ball. Holding the title as the softest two-piece ball on the market, this ball also pledges to go the distance, generating two miles an hour of ball speed off driver strikes at 90 miles per hour, according to Wilson. For a ball that feels like cashmere and still has some boom off the tee, the Duo Soft + is an all-around game-changer.

Is it for me?

The Duo Soft + is ideal for the value-conscious golfer who wants to get most out of a two-piece ball. If you’re looking for more distance from the tee, but still a great feel around the green, this ball is worth a closer look.
