I haven't seen the article yet, so cant comment on their list.
But picking a golf ball for me, I've always gone to the local pro shop and picked up a sleeve of this and a sleeve of that.. and golfed with them. Find some I like, some I dont, and some I love.
In the end you need to find a ball which you are comfortable when using for all of the golf shots you encounter in a round then stick to that one.
I still try other golf balls, but I like the ProV, nike 20xiS, Taylor made Penta for my game. For me I have great feel and distance with all 3 of them.
