PLANO, TEXAS, June 30, 2011 – Providing maximum distance for players who benefit from lighter weight clubs, the industry-leading Speedline 9088 UL drivers combine less overall mass with perfectly balanced weighting and true aerodynamic technology to deliver increased yardages off the tee.

Typically, lighter weight golf clubs with heavy swing weights are difficult for most players to release, which result in shorter drives right of the target line. Weighing in at 290 total grams and a swing weight of D0, the exceptional design features of the Speedline 9088 UL drivers has culminated in the highest performing lightweight driver on the market. By using a 45 gram shaft (Matrix Radix HD) with a slightly higher balance point in combination with a lightweight club head, the balance of the overall club ensures longer, easier-to-hit shots that go straighter with less dispersion. Just as in the entire Speedline series of drivers, an aero-shaped crown creates less drag and less airflow turbulence for increased club head speed. The swing weight of the Speedline 9088 UL driver also better matches the rest of a player’s set, ensuring more consistent shots from club to club. Thus, the Speedline 9088 UL driver is the first in the industry to combine the proven benefits of aerodynamic shaping with perfectly balanced lightweight club construction to give players of all types more consistent distance.

“Our extensive testing showed that many lighter weight drivers on the market ended up with very high swing weights, which most players tended to hit to the right,” said Scott Burnett, Director of Advance Product Development. “We solved that problem by balancing the weight throughout the entire club, creating lighter inertia around the grip, allowing players to hit the ball straighter. The result is they don’t have to put as much effort into actually releasing the club.”

The Speedline 9088 UL standard driver will ship to golf shops beginning August 1. The draw model will ship September 15. The suggested retail price (SRP) for the Speedline 9088 UL driver is $399.99. Available lofts and flexes are as follows:
