The annual 2012 Top 10 Best Golf Balls awards list was topped by the Titliest ProV1x winning the top quality spot and a 9 out of 10 rating. The review noted several strengths of the ball including the following exerpt, “More professional golfers prefer this ball or the original ProV1 to any other ball. The reason is simple – a great combination of length, feel, and pure distance. It’s also got improved scuff resistance for increased durability and good spin control capabilities. ”

The best value golf ball in the Comparison Golf Ball Ratings as rated by the author was the Nike One Tour and Tour Distance ball which editors noted is strong in many areas such as the following:
“This ball was once a competitor to the best balls on tour. It has an impressive 378 dimples and 4 layer construction (the Tour Distance ball has 3 layer construction). It contains a soft seamless outer cover and is a top ball in distance, control and feel.”

Next, the best budget award from the Best Golf Ball Reviews was the Bridgestone e5 Golf Ball for which the reviewer commented, “Though a very good value price point, the Bridgestone e5 Golf Ball has great distance off the tee and isnt bad around the greens either. It has 330 dimples with an unusual dual dimple design, and a 2-piece cast urethane cover.”

Titleist, Callaway, Bridgestone and Nike all had two balls to make the Top 10 list.
