Golf Digest has released their 2016 Golf Ball Hot List, and since you’re on our website you’re probably asking yourself, “How did Callaway do?” Well, based on all the gold medals we won and the 5-star performance ratings for Chrome Soft and Supersoft, it’s safe to say that we had an amazing showing!
Much like we did in the Golf Club Hot List in January, Callaway’s industry-leading technology made the judges take notice. A few highlights from our dominant performance:
New Chrome Soft (Gold Medal Winner)
We’ve been telling you since we introduced this ball that it delivers outstanding performance and incredible feel. And the judges agreed, awarding the New Chrome Soft with a perfect 5-star performance rating and 5-stars for feel.
When you combine the 4-piece design with total control through the bag, fast ball speed off the driver, and low compression, you have a game-changing golf ball that’s perfectly suited for regular players and Tour pros alike.
Here’s what a few people are saying about Chrome Soft on Twitter:

Supersoft (Gold Medal Winner)
Golfers love the Supersoft, and why wouldn’t they love the softest ball we’ve ever made? The Hot List panelists rewarded it with a 5-star rating for feel, which you might expect from the extremely low compression.
Having great feel is important, but ultimately performance is king, and just like Chrome Soft, Supersoft received a 5-star performance rating. This ball has now won a gold medal two years in a row, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
We’re pumped with our results in Hot List, and we want to congratulate our golf ball R&D team on a job well done!
