Genesis Scottish Open

The Renaissance Club



Hot List Silver 2023

These three balls don’t differentiate by swing speed as much as they do by feel. For the most part, each of these models features the same technology, starting with a new core formulation that is designed to boost initial ball speed. The intermediate mantle layer adds extra resiliency to reduce spin on tee shots, and a second mantle on the firmer Tour X increases spin on iron shots. Finally, all three balls use the company’s balancing technology that indicates where each ball is perfectly centered. 


TOUR: It’s in the middle in terms of softness among the three and produces a middle trajectory with mid-level iron spin.

Feel Rating (Soft to Firm)


TOUR S: The softest of the three is 15 compression points lower than the X. Off the irons, its flight and spin will be the lowest.


TOUR X: This is the firmest of the three. Flight and spin off the irons will be at the mid to high level. Fast swingers will gain the most benefit through the bag because of its dual-mantle construction.


Performance: 4/5

Innovation: 4.5/5
