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.

What player has the best ‘B’ game on the PGA Tour? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the players with the best ‘B’ games on Tour. WRXer ‘Yuck’ kicks off the thread with his choice, saying:

“At one time, Tiger could win with his “B” game. With the parity that is out there now, that is unlikely. But day in, day out, I would say Rahm has one of the best “B” games out there now. His bad is just not very bad…” 

And our members have been sharing their picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Paddy_2_Iron: “Rahm. His B game is nothing short of fantastic. Sprinkle in some A here and there, and he will win a lot. Could he win 30 before the end of his career? Reminds me of an Ernie Els, Vijay Singh type talent.”
  • ebrasmus21: “I think it’s Rory, and I think DeChambeau will get to the point where he starts winning close tournaments with his ‘B’ game and crushing the field when he’s on.”
  • Don Svo: “My inner sarcastic self says the answer is Charles Howell III because he’s always on his B game and rolls top-25s constantly. Serious note, chalk up another vote for Rahm. Dude is a stud, and I wouldn’t be shocked to see him end up doing the Dustin Johnson and racking up wins every year for years.”
  • SC-TX88: “A few years ago, I would’ve said Spieth, hard to judge now though what game he is playing with.”

Published

At GolfWRX, we are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways.

It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buying and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a Rare Yamada Musashi Burning Copper left handed putter.

From the seller (Mob): “There aren’t many of these in the world in left handed.  The most desirable shaped putter of all the Yamada putters.  Pictures say it all.  No dings or scratches.  Minor face wear visible at the impact point. Otherwise immaculate condition.  Very little play outside of the house; I have only played it outside twice, more of a collector’s item.  One of the softest feeling putters I have ever felt when hitting the sweet spot.  34 inches in length.  Original Gripmaster grip and Yamada headcover.  $900 shipped. Not interested in trades at the moment.”

To check out the full listing in our BST forum, head through the link: Rare Yamada Musashi Burning Copper left handed putter
