Srixon PGA Tour Yellow Golf Ball This ball first caught my eye early last year when I saw PGA Tour professional Tim Clark playing it. It took me by surprise because I had never seen a tour pro play a yellow golf ball before. Usually I'm more accustomed to seeing a yellow ball in the hands of my buddy, Buck. He shows up every Wednesday with a whole laundry hamper full of all kinds of colored golf balls. I like to take him out to my local Executive Par 3 course: The Putt and Pitcher. (Free wings on Wednesday if you don't wear a tank top.) I never asked Buck where he got all those golf balls. It's usually my policy not to ask Buck questions that I could later be called on in court to recount.

Anyway, I was enthralled to see Tim playing the same color ball as Buck, and later in the telecast I heard Nick Faldo explain the idea. You see, yellow is the most visible color in the visual spectrum, and psychologists say that green is the most calming. Thus, the brilliant designers (or marketers) at Srixon built this snot-colored golf ball. (Ahhh, I feel so calm looking at it. Maybe I'll paint my bedroom this color...)

Obviously, I'm not a big fan of the color, but the ball does have some redeeming qualities. The Srixon Z Star X has the thinnest cover I've seen. The soft urethane cover is 0.5mm or 0.02 inches. The progressive core is firmer towards the outside to improve spin and launch conditions for every club in the bag.

And you don't have to get it in yellow. For this ball in the standard white, check out the Srixon Z Star X ball. And for those slower swingers (less than 105 mph), check out the Srixon Z Star golf ball.
