Srixon Earns Multiple Gold on 2017 Golf Digest Hot List


SRIXON was awarded a 2017 Golf Digest Hot List Gold Medal to every Srixon golf ball model entered for testing. That includes all five premium models in the current Srixon golf ball lineup:

  • The Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV, which earned “5 Stars” for Performance and “4.5 Stars” for Innovation and Feel.
  • The Q-STAR TOUR, which earned “5 Stars” for Performance, Innovation and Feel.
  • The Q-STAR, which earned “4.5 Stars” for Performance and Feel.
  • The Soft Feel, which earned “5 Stars” for Feel.

SRIXON won Gold Medal in all three award categories, “Over $35”, “$26 to $35”, “$25 and Under”.

“These incredible results from the Hot List show how strong the full lineup of Srixon golf balls is, with a high-performance model available for every type of player,” said Mike Powell, President of Sales & Marketing for Srixon/Cleveland Golf/XXIO, North America. “To have every one of our entries be recognized with Gold – five models in total – with at least one model in all three categories, this proves we have the most complete lineup of golf balls on the market today. Without question, Srixon delivers total performance.”

While world-class PGA TOUR professionals like Hideki Matsuyama (Z-STAR XV) and Russell Knox (Z-STAR) use Tour Performance offerings from Srixon, moderate swing speed amateurs and core recreational players can gain enhanced distance, accuracy and consistency playing lower-compression offerings like the Q-STAR TOUR, Q-STAR, and Soft Feel, which is also available in Soft Feel Lady.
