HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – April 7, 2010 – Srixon® Sports, a world leader in golf club and golf ball technology, congratulates PGA staffer Jim Furyk for his hole-in-one during today’s annual Par 3 Contest at the Masters. Furyk played a Srixon® Z-STAR™ Tour Yellow golf ball and used a Srixon® Z-TX™ iron on his hole-in-one, which occurred on hole #9, a par-3, 135 yard hole.
During the Masters’ Par 3 Contest, Srixon® Z-STAR™ Tour Yellow golf balls were also played by Vijay Singh, Tim Clark, Steve Flesch and Soren Kjeldsen. Both Vijay Singh and Tim Clark will be officially teeing up Srixon® Z-STAR™ Tour Yellow golf balls during the Masters, which begins tomorrow.
“Jim’s hole-in-one at the Masters’ Par 3 Contest was a great opportunity to showcase our new Z-STAR™ Tour Yellow golf ball,” said Chris Beck, Brand Manager for Srixon®. “We knew having four players use it in the competition was a great way to increase the public’s awareness of this fantastic product, which has already been on tour for several months. Jim’s hole-out had our company’s phones ringing off the hook as golfers everywhere wanted to learn more about the Tour Yellow technology”.
