Available in both white and yellow the new and improved Q-Star Tour ($30/dozen) golf balls are aimed at players with moderate clubhead speeds that desire Tour-like performance with a soft feel and lower price.
Check them out and see if one is right for you but keep in mind the TS2 is aimed at those who want high launch low spin distance and forgiveness while the TS3 is aimed at those who want mid launch low spin and enhanced workability.
One of the somewhat surprising successes for Srixon in recent years was the Z U65 utility iron which very nicely blended the distance and versatility of a hybrid with the added control of an iron.
The new Z 785 is also more forgiving than the past model due to a lightweight carbon crown that allows for a lower and deeper CG location. Customized adjustability is provided by Srixon’s Quick Tune system that allows for fast loft lie and face angle adjustment as well as swing weight alterations via a choice of interchangeable weights (4g 6g 8g 10g 12g).
Because the Z U85 features a more iron-like design than typical hybrid clubs it can easily be blended with the other Z irons for a truly customized set. Lofts available include 18° 20° 23° 26° and 29° all with UST Recoil 95 graphite shafts as standard.
Companies like Odyssey Ping Scotty Cameron and TaylorMade produce fantastic flatsticks But it’s also true that there are some smaller lesser-known manufacturers who also make some really terrific putters.
Like the TS2 the TS3 features the same thin titanium crown for lower and deeper CG location thinner and faster clubface for more distance and improved aerodynamic shape for more swing speed.
Featuring a blade-like clubhead with a small cavity and relatively narrow sole the Z 785 has more mass behind the sweetspot for improved versatility as well as a new Tour V.T. sole that improves turf interaction.
The Tour V.T. sole improves turf interaction as well. Both new models come standard with Nippon Modus steel shafts with a Miyazaki Kaula graphite shaft also available.
Bryson DeChambeau bested Tony Finau by four strokes and captured the Northern Trust at Ridgewood CC in New Jersey on Sunday with a final-round 69.
Featuring a three-piece construction the second generation Q-Star Tour is built with a thin and soft urethane cover for enhanced short-game spin and control as well as Srixon’s third generation Spin Skin coating for optimum spin in all scoring situations.
Other features include a low compression core for excellent feel and low-spin distance on long shots and a 338 speed dimple pattern for less drag improved launch and solid performance in windy conditions. Less sidespin for straighter shots is an additional benefit a wide variety of players will appreciate.
