Cool, Calm & Colored



Here’s a trivia question for you. Who was the first player to win a PGA Tournament with a colored golf ball? Better yet, how about the first Major Tournament won with one? (Yes, it actually happened.) The answer is Wayne Levi, who broke the color barrier way back in 1982 at the Hawaiian Open. Jerry Pate won the PGA Championship that same year, also sporting an orange orb.

It’s a wonder it didn’t catch on, right? Professional use of colored golf balls quickly withered after the mid-1980s, as more and more players opted for higher-performance golf balls that were made with predominately white covers. Near 30 years later, color has resurfaced, albeit this time in a new variety of golf balls that cater to virtually every type of player. Now, you can find colored distance balls, multilayer balls, even the same multilayer urethane-covered type golf balls that today’s best players in the world compete with (and yes, some are still experimenting with colored balls off and on the professional Tours). Maybe the question ought to be, who will be the next player to win on Tour with a colored golf ball? We’ll have to see. Until then, have a look at some of our favorite colored golf balls in 2011.

Srixon Z-Star Tour Yellow
The Srixon Z-Star and the newer Z-Star XV golf balls feature Tour-level performance in urethane-covered, multilayer, colored golf balls. According to the folks at Srixon, the Z-Star and Z-Star XV’s Tour Yellow color was carefully selected to be not only highly visible, but also more pleasing to the eye. In terms of performance, the three-piece Z-Star is the softer of the two golf balls, formed with a lower compression for enhanced spin and shotmaking capabilities. Golfers with swing speeds in the 80-105 mph range will likely gravitate to this ball. For faster swing speeds, the Z-Star XV has both four-piece construction and a firmer core, resulting in less spin off the tee for a longer, more penetrating ballfli...
