ORLANDO, Florida (April 23, 2020) – Volvik USA (, a rapidly-growing, premium high-performance golf ball company, earned top marks on the 2020 Golf Digest Hot List. The Volvik XT Soft golf balls received a Gold Medal rating on Golf Digest’s “Best New Golf Balls” Equipment list this year, in the over $35 category.

“We take pride in the fact that Volvik XT Soft golf balls received a gold medal designation on the 2020 Golf Digest Hot List,” said Don Shin, president of Volvik USA. “XT Soft golf balls provide outstanding performance benefits to discerning players everywhere.”

The Volvik XT Soft ball has received wide praise and recognition among professional and highly skilled amateur players around the world.

Golf Digest consulted scientists, retailers and everyday golfers to identify which balls perform best in all phases.

Golf Digest rated products based on four criteria: performance, innovation, feel and demand.

With an ever-increasing number of both tour and amateur players finding success with Volvik, the company continues to extend its recognition and presence throughout the golf industry.
