Callaway HX Tour and HX Tour 56

Golf Monthly Verdict

We've always felt HX Tour balls hold their line well in the wind, helping keep distance up too. The original is a little firmer than some round the greens, but the newer HX Tour 56 passes the fingernail softness test with flying colours, providing high levels of greenside control.

Both balls' covers feature Callaway's HEX design with six strategically placed deeper depressions to boost flight stability. The HX Tour is designed to be a little longer while the HX Tour 56's slighter thicker urethane cover should generate more spin on short shots and a slightly softer feel.
