Srixon upgrades Q-Star golf balls for 2017

Published

on

Along with Srixon’s premium Z-Star and Z-Star XV golf balls and the company’s new Q-Star Tour, which offers premium constructions at only $30, Srixon is also releasing an updated version of its Q-Star golf ball. Made for golfers of all swing speeds, and for those who demand balanced performance, the Q-Star golf balls have a two-piece, low-compression design and will sell for $24.99 per dozen.

Like Srixon’s higher-end golf balls, the Q-Star golf balls use the companies Energetic Gradient Growth (E.G.G.) core, which means the core of the golf ball is softer in the center for added long-game distance, and it gets progressively firmer toward the edges for higher spin around the green.

“The Q-Star’s built-in tour technologies should help golfers see great performance in every aspect of their golf game,” said Michael Ross, Senior Product Manager at Srixon. “This is the golf ball for players who seek maximum playability from a more durable, two-piece design.”

The new Q-Star golf balls also have Srixon’s “Spin-Skin” coating, now made with more elastic for more grab around the greens. The outer cover, like Srixon’s higher-end golf balls, has 338 dimples that improve aerodynamics for better control in the wind.

Srixon’s 2017 Q-Star golf balls will be available in stores on August 18.

    Q Star Tour is the same as the Pro V but cheaper, so that makes it way better

    I want to like Srixon, keep trying the Q-Star but it is not very durable for me. I even went to the Q-Star Tour and not much better….my Duo’s and NXT’s hold up way better IMO.

Bettinardi signs LPGA duo Muni He and Albane Valenzuela

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has announced its partnership with LPGA rising stars Muni He and Albane Valenzuela.

Muni He, who qualified for the LPGA Tour in 2019 and is well-known for her large platform and fashion influence on social media, will use Bettinardi’s DASS QB8 Mid-Slant Tour Dept. putter.

He’s DASS QB8 Mid-Slant Tour Dept. putter is milled to 360 grams and features an oil rubbed bronze PVD finish. The flat-stick is constructed of double aged stainless steel and contains the brand’s F.I.T face milling.

The 21-year-old returned to action last week at the LPGA Tour’s Marathon Classic and will tee it up once again with the Bettinardi putter in her bag at this week’s Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open.

Speaking on joining Team Bettinardi, He stated

“I’m very excited to join the Bettinardi family. The putter gives me great confidence on the greens and hoping that I could bring out my best game for the rest of the season with the support of the Bettinardi team.”

The company have also signed the Chilean Albane Valenzuela to its tour staff, who will tee it up this week using Bettinardi’s INOVAI 6.0 Tour Dept. putter.

The 22-year-old joined the LPGA Tour after being awarded the Pac-12 Women’s Golfer of the Year while at Stanford University. Other accolades include representing Switzerland at the 2016 Olympics, twice finishing runner up in the U.S. Women’s Amateur as well as being an ANNIKA Award finalist.

Speaking after joining Bettinardi, Valenzuela said

”I am thrilled to partner with Bettinardi Golf as I begin my professional career. The company’s technology, craftsmanship and attention to detail give me the confidence that I will be competing with the best putters in my bag. The ability to work with Bettinardi’s designers to customize a putter that optimizes my stroke will be a huge asset for me.”

He and Valenzuela are the latest LPGA players to join Team Bettinardi which features the likes of Annie Park and China’s No. 2 player, Yu Liu.
