HEX Chrome+, HEX Hot and HEX Black Tour Win Hot List Gold Medals


Jeff Newton

The HEX Chrome family, HEX Hot family, and HEX Black Tour each won gold medals and led the charge for Callaway Golf Balls in Golf Digest’s new 2013 Golf Ball Hot List Edition.

While HEX Chrome+ was recognized for its 4-piece performance and dual core construction, the HEX Hot offerings earned praise for their fast ball speeds, and HEX Black Tour stood out for its well-rounded 5-piece design.

We’ve seen the performance for both these golf balls on Tour and heard tremendous feedback from players like you who use them on the course. Now the Golf Digest equipment team has gone to great lengths to give the full details on our golf balls.

Here’s what they had to say:
