Will the #1 Player in the World play the #1 Ball in Golf?

September 24, 2015 – As the world’s greatest golfers of 2015 take the stage at the Fedex Cup finale this weekend, their caps and bags will broadcast out the increasing adoption of alternative golf balls played on the PGA Tour. The team at GBT Technologies and GolfBallTest.org have confirmed that of the Top 15 players in the world (as ranked by the World Golf Ranking), six play the Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball; four play the TaylorMade Tour Preferred X golf ball; one plays a Srixon golf ball, one a Callaway golf ball, one a Nike golf ball and one a Bridgestone golf ball. Titleist, the self-acclaimed #1 ball in golf has the clear lead in this elite group of golfers, but there are also 8 of 15 (53%) who are winning with something other than a Pro V1 or Pro V1x.

Here is the list of the World Golf Top 15 ranked players, along with their FedEx Cup point standing, and the ball they are currently playing:

Independent and Unbiased Ball Selection

GolfBallSelector.com is a member-supported / advertisement-free service. We conduct independent and rigorous testing of golf balls and are brand-agnostic when it comes to recommendations for each specific member.

In choosing the right golf ball, we believe that golfers should look for a ball that is right for their unique game – and consider trading off objectives such as driver distance, sand wedge spin and feel on and around the green. Golf balls will perform differently for different types of golfers given the golfer’s swing type and their own unique mix of ball speed launch angle and ability to spin and control the golf ball.
