Adapting to a new generation of golfers

Ambassadors test new Srixon prototype

By Matt Weinberger

Several hand selected Srixon Ambassadors were delighted to find prototype Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV balls on their door step last week accompanied with a handwritten note.  These Ambassadors are ending 2018 on a high note as some of the first players to ever test the new generation of Srixon balls. Tyler, Iggy, and Chris took the new balls to their local courses to give their assessment. Let's hear what they had to say. 

"I can’t thank Srixon enough for letting me test the new prototypes for 2019. After my first 50 shots or so I would say that I like the spin on the new balls, especially around the green and from 110 yards and closer. I did a few tests at the range with the prototypes against competitors' balls and my numbers consistently averaged better with the Srixon ball, so it’s a great fit for me." - Tyler Allen (Charlotte, NC)
"I loved how durable the cover of both the Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV were. After hitting countless wedge shots the balls did not scuff at all." - Iggy Furtado (Orlando, FL)
"The prototype had a great ball flight and cut through the Texas wind very well, especially with my driver. I played 18 holes with one ball and it still looked like it could go another 18. I felt really confident standing over the ball" - Chris Chao (Houston, TX)

Ambassadors have a lot to look forward to in 2019 including additional opportunities to test prototypes, check out Srixon's Headquarters, and take shadowing experiences at PGA Tour events.  To learn more about the program check out the Srixon/Cleveland Golf Ambassador page.
