PGA TOUR professionals Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk, as well as a worldwide contingent of professional golfers are currently playing the Z-STAR and Z-STAR X series of golf balls. Tour victories for the Z-STAR ball series include Henrik Stenson's victories at the 2008 Nedbank Golf Challenge and the 2008 Omega Mission Hills World Cup, as well as Tim Clark's win at the 2008 Australian Open, John Rollins victory at the 2009 Reno-Tahoe Open and Jim Furyk's win at the 2009 Chevron World Challenge.
The Z-STAR Tour Yellow golf ball is designed to be the best-balanced golf ball for the low-to-mid handicap players, seeking a combination of long distance, spin control and soft feel. The Z-STAR X Tour Yellow golf ball is a distance-oriented tour-performance ball for players looking for explosive distance and high-spin performance around the greens. The Srixon Z-STAR Tour Yellow ball lines both feature new Energetic Gradient Growth core technology, which Srixon claims promotes increased ball speed, as well as high launch and low spin. Their newly developed 324 large seamless dimples also help reduce wind resistance for increased distance, while the new coating on their super-soft urethane cover significantly improves spin performance from the rough, allowing players to go after the pin from any lie.
The Z-STAR™ and Z-STAR™ X Tour Yellow golf balls will begin shipping to retailers on April 1, 2010 and will carry a price of $39.99.
