Srixon Announces Newly Redesigned Q-STAR Golf Ball for
Better Balanced Performance

SRIXON has announced the launch of the newly redesigned and very popular Q-STAR golf ball for golfers who demand balanced performance from a more durable, two-piece ball offering. The Srixon Q-STAR is available in Pure White ™ and Tour Yellow™ and officially launches in North America on August 18, 2017.

Srixon is a tour-proven golf manufacturer with premium golf balls and club offerings popular with golfers around the world. The Q-STAR golf ball utilizes the same premium technologies found in Srixon’s higher-priced tour balls but offers them in a 2-piece construction that is more durable and affordable.

The new Q-STAR features a lower-compression Energetic Gradient Growth TM Core, a new third generation Spin Skin™ coating, and a new, more efficient 338 Aerodynamic Speed Dimple ™ Pattern. These three technologies combine to deliver balanced performance: longer, more accurate driving distance, better iron control, and improved greenside spin.

“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, 2-piece design.”

The key technologies inside the new Q-STAR include:

· Lower-Compression Energetic Gradient Growth Core. Q-STAR’s core technology uses variable stiffness to deliver better feel and exceptional distance on every shot.

· Third Generation Spin Skin Coating. This latest iteration of Srixon’s proven ball coating is more elastic with less bonding points so it produces more consistent spin from any lie — especially the rough.

· Aerodynamic 338 Speed Dimple Pattern. Along with more control in the wind, this dimple pattern reduces drag to maximize distance.

The Srixon Q-STAR golf ball officially launches in North America on August 18, 2017, at a MAP of $24.99 per dozen.

Frequently Asked Questions…
What happens if I do not pass the playing ability portion of the course? Can I still become certified?
Yes, on the following:

1. Provided you have passed the written and teaching sections of the 5 day on-site course (or achieve at least 85% on the written exam of the home study course) and you are within 4 strokes of the target s core, you may, upon returning home and within a 12-month period, submit to the PGTAA, 4 attested score cards of 83 or less on any championship course (6,000+ yards). These score cards must be attested by at least two playing partners along with their scores on the same card or alternatively, signed by the local professional if he/she is familiar with your game.
2. Provided you have passed the written and verbal teaching sections of the 5 day on-site course (or the written section of the home study course),  but your combined score is beyond 4 strokes of the target score, then the following scenario to upgrade your certification is required:
You must return to any PGTAA certification course within a 12-month period and successfully redo only the PAT portion with a PGTAA instructor. The administrative fee is $200, which includes green and cart fees. Accommodations, if needed, can be arranged at an extra cost.
