Of the many recent trends in the game of golf, none are more noticeable than the rise of colorful golf balls. While colored balls have been around for a long time, they were often seen as the mark of a bad golf ball. No longer. Now all the top golf ball manufacturers in the game offer colored versions of many top models. Check out the eight examples below to see if they catch your eye in just the right way.
Bridgestone Tour B RX
The Tour B RX is available in white and optic-yellow. This high-performance ball includes a multilayer design, urethane cover, and proprietary core construction (what you see in Tour models), but with more forgiveness and distance for swings that don’t hit the triple-digit mark.
Callaway Chrome Soft Truvis Pink
The newest Truvis color looks cool and also helps raise money for the Morgan Pressel Foundation to fight breast cancer. The pattern allows you to see how the ball is spinning on chips and putts and actually makes the ball appear larger than it really is.
Srixon Q-Star Tour
A urethane-covered model available in both white and yellow, the Q-Star Tour offers multilayer Tour-like performance for those with moderate swing speeds. Other features include an energetic gradient core for a combination of distance and short-game spin.
Volvik was one of the first companies to jump into the matte-finish category, and the popular Vivid is now available in nine different colors. Aimed at players with moderate clubhead speeds, the newest iteration features a larger core for more distance and a new cover for enhanced durability.
TaylorMade Project (s)
The Project (s) doesn’t just come in white, matte yellow and matte orange, it provides even softer compression and feel than the Project (a), but with the same low driver spin and speed to produce plenty of distance through the bag. A multilayer design with reduced drag for max yards.
Wilson Staff DUO Professional
The 60 compression DUO Professional provides Tour-level performance with a very soft feel in three vibrant colors, in addition to white. Expect up to 10 percent more iron spin for improved scoring, and a scuff-resistant cover.
Designed to produce high flight and very low long-game spin, the Velocity is available in white, visi-white, orange and pink. The Velocity’s soft, high-speed core delivers fast speeds off the clubface and a soft feel around the green—the best of both worlds.
The first premium Titleist ball available in both white and yellow (look for more colors in ’19), the AVX offers a softer feel and lower trajectory than the Pro V1 line. The AVX is also the lowest spinning of the three models, making it a great choice for max distance.
