First Look: Srixon Z-Star Tour Yellow Golf Balls

Yellow golf balls are balls you hit at your local driving range or low quality golf balls. No self-respecting golfer would ever use a yellow golf ball on the golf course. Right?

That’s all about to change with the new version of the popular Srixon Z-STAR Tour Yellow golf balls. Yep, that’s right a tour caliber premium yellow golf ball!

At the 2010 PGA Merchandise Show, Srixon quietly introduced the Z-STAR and Z-STARx Tour Yellow golf balls and I have to say I was quite skeptical about why anyone would want to play a yellow golf ball.

Why a Yellow Golf Ball?
Have you ever tried to track a golf ball on a clear and sunny day? Even with sunglasses on, you can easily lose the golf ball in the air.

To solve this problem, Srixon did a lot of testing backed by scientific data that has proven, that yellow is the most visible color in the visual spectrum and psychology has correlated green with calming and stress relief. Take the two findings and you have the Srixon Z-STAR and Z-STARx Tour Yellow golf balls.

Tour Yellow is a unique blend of yellow and green to formulate the next generations of tour golf balls. The Tour Yellow balls will be played by some of Cleveland Golf Tour Staff like Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk. It will be interesting to see what the reaction will be on Tour by fellow competitors and the fans.

The Z-STAR is a high-performance multilayered ball with low compression and extremely soft feel. This is the softer of the two Z-STAR balls which is great around the greens and distance control with your putter. The only thing different is the color!

The  Z-STAR Tour Yellow may turn heads on the golf course and make it easier to find my golf ball, but I’m curious to see if it will make me more relaxed?

I’m willing to try the Srixon Z-STAR Tour Yellow. Are you?
