Cleveland Golf Announces New Launcher Woods and Irons

Cleveland Golf Announces New Launcher Woods and Irons for Golfers Who Prefer to Launch the Ball High and Straight

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — August 7, 2017 — CLEVELAND GOLF® woods and irons are back with powerful technologies that help avid golfers experience faster ball speeds, more distance, and added control. Optimized for dedicated golfers who prefer forgiving clubs that launch the ball high and straight, Cleveland Golf’s new woods and irons will launch in North America on Sept. 15, 2017.

Since 1979, Cleveland Golf equipment has brought industry-leading performance to professional and amateur golfers alike. In keeping with that legacy, Launcher Woods and Irons combine Cleveland Golf’s most popular club technologies with new performance innovations that provide avid golfers with the distance, forgiveness, and control they demand.

Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Cleveland Golf, explained why the company’s woods and irons are back: “When we looked into the woods and irons markets we saw a major disconnect. Prices are increasing dramatically while golfers aren’t seeing significant performance gains. So we set out to create new woods and irons with true performance benefits that are obvious the moment a golfer swings one of these clubs.

“When it comes to drivers, a big part of the problem is excessive adjustability. These features are nice for some golfers but are quite heavy, positioning weight in less than ideal locations.  It’s a major tradeoff in performance. By replacing those features with a lightweight hosel and weight positioned low and deep within the head, we built the Launcher HB driver with more forgiveness and incredible distance that will clearly show up on a launch monitor.”

 Launcher HB Woods

The new Launcher HB Driver, Fairway Woods and Hybrids utilize performance technologies that help golfers launch the ball far and straight. The clubs employ a redesigned HiBore Crown, ultra-lightweight hosel, Flex-Fin Technology, Low and Deep Weighting and a Launcher Cup Face to deliver the distance and forgiveness sought after by most golfers.

Launcher CBX Irons

Launcher CBX Irons combine all of Cleveland Golf’s proven wedge spin technologies with a forgiving cavity back design. Progressive shaping, Feel Balancing TechnologyTM and a V shaped sole work in tandem to increase forgiveness. Tour Zip Grooves and Laser Milling produce high levels of spin from the fairway and the rough, providing dramatically improved control around the course.

 Launcher HB Irons

With the fully-hollow Launcher HB Irons, Cleveland Golf improves upon one of their most popular iron designs. The extremely forgiving irons use a high-strength steel face, HiBore Crown, and hybrid-like design to help golfers launch the ball higher and farther than typical cavity back irons.

Launcher Woods and Irons will be available for pre-sale at select retailers on Aug. 28, 2017 and will launch throughout North America on Sept. 15, 2017.

Exotics CBX Forged irons; a MATERIAL ADVANTAGE It’s official, the CBX forged player’s irons have arrived!

Batavia, IL (March 16, 2017) – Tour Edge, Golf’s Most Solid Investment, is pleased to officially introduce the Exotics CBX forged irons, a MATERIAL ADVANTAGE in a player’s club. A limited number of the new CBX irons were shown at the PGA Show in Orlando, FL in January and were immediately celebrated for the visual styling and performance. Now ready for a full introduction into the market – the CBX forged irons feature new, softer materials, CNC milled face and cavity for the utmost in stability and forgiveness without sacrificing the feel and workability which is imperative in a player’s iron.

The Exotics CBX irons are triple forged from Japanese S25c Carbon steel delivering a softer feel on every shot and substantial forgiveness in a blade. Tour Edge engineers CNC mill the faces for perfect flatness. The square grooves are also CNC milled for 100 percent USGA compliant grooves. Every groove is computer laser engraved ensuring that every club head will pass USGA inspection. The CBX forged irons give players confidence knowing each club being used is USGA approved.

The cavity in the CBX forged irons is designed for the most advantageous MOI and forgiveness by CNC milling to insure the deepest cavity possible in a player’s iron.

“The CNC milling allows us to control the depth precisely ensuring we take as much material out and place it in the flange area for more forgiveness and higher launch,” explained David Glod, President and Founder of Tour Edge Golf.

The CBX forged irons are designed for performance and boast a premium traditional shape with a moderate offset for distance with workability. A dual level flange gives enhanced feel, especially on shots struck low on the face, and good acoustics from a forged cavity.

All players benefit from added feel enrichment on every shot and the CBX forged TPE alloy insert helps dampen vibration on mishits especially in a blade.

Premium high-performance stock shafts options: True Temper XP 95 (R, S); True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT (R, S, X); KBS Tour Steel (R, S, X); Mitsubishi Recoil graphite shafts. Custom premium shaft options include: KBS C-Taper, KBS C-Taper Light; Dynamic Gold Tour Issue; Dynamic Gold.

Projected ship date is April 4, 2017. The CBX forged irons suggested retail pricing: $125 per club stock steel shaft, and $150 per club in Recoil graphite and custom steel shafts. Every Tour Edge club comes with a lifetime warranty and a 30-day play guarantee. Pre-orders can be placed with an authorized dealer.

Superstroke Golf Signs Deal With Sergio Garcia

SUPERSTROKE GOLF SIGNS MULTI-YEAR EQUIPMENT DEAL WITH SERGIO GARCIA,
LAUNCHES STAFF AMBASSADOR PROGRAM WITH TOP PGA PROFESSIONALS AND INSTRUCTORS

 

Sergio Garcia joins No. 2 ranked golfer in the world Jordan Spieth, along with Jason Dufner and Victor Dubuisson on Team SuperStroke PGA Tour athlete roster.

Recruitment of top PGA Professionals and instructors complement existing Team SuperStroke athlete roster playing SuperStroke grips on Tour.

 

WIXOM, Mich. (Sept. 16, 2015) – SuperStroke, the leader in oversized grip technology and the most popular oversized putter grips on the PGA Tour, today announced a multi-year equipment deal with Sergio Garcia, the No. 10 ranked golfer in the world. As part of the partnership, Garcia will play a SuperStroke Ultra Slim 1.0 grip on his putter and SuperStroke TX1 club grips on his irons, wedges and woods.

 

“Sergio has consistently been one of the most exciting players on tour, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the SuperStroke family,” said Dean Dingman, President of SuperStroke Golf. “SuperStroke remains committed to bringing innovation and technology to its grips. Any type of golfer, amateur or professional, can benefit from playing our grips.”

 

While Garcia has been working with SuperStroke to test its comprehensive grip lineup for several months, he officially made the switch to SuperStroke’s TX1 club grips on Tour prior to the 2015 Open Championship at St. Andrews in July, where he finished in a tie for sixth place. Garcia has consistently been playing a SuperStroke grip on his putter since 2013.

 

“There’s nothing more important than feel when it comes to selecting a golf grip,” said Garcia. “SuperStroke gives me confidence in every shot and putt I take. I look forward to seeing how this latest enhancement to my game will help me achieve even more success.”

 

During his professional career, Garcia has recorded 24 professional career wins, including eight PGA Tour and 11 European Tour victories. He has appeared in seven Ryder Cups, where he boasts an impressive 18-9-5 cumulative record. Other career accolades include being recognized as the 1999 Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year, 2008 Vardon Trophy winner and 2008 Byron Nelson Award winner.

 

Garcia joins current Masters and U.S. Open Champion Jordan Spieth on the Team SuperStroke athlete roster, which also includes Jason Dufner, Victor Dubuisson, as well as PGA legend and pre-eminent putting instructor Dave Stockton. Beyond its well-known, high-performing roster of brand ambassadors, SuperStroke has been helping the best players in the world post better scores and improve their putting and ball striking. More than 125 professional golfers have used SuperStroke grips on their respected tours and this number continues to grow. In most weeks on the PGA Tour, approximately 30 players use a SuperStroke putter grip.

 

SuperStroke Staff Ambassador Program

To further expand its reach to inform and educate golfers about how the right equipment can help them “Play Better” and improve their overall golf game, SuperStroke announces the grip company’s newly created SuperStroke Staff Ambassador program consisting of some of the top PGA Professionals and instructors at the most prestigious courses in the U.S.

 

SuperStroke has already recruited more than 30 PGA Professionals and instructors, including Bob Ford of Seminole Golf Club and Oakmont Country Club, site of the 2016 U.S. Open. Other notable SuperStroke Staff Ambassadors include Rich Tock of Erin HIlls Golf Course, Derek Brody of Inverness Club, Cary Cozby of Southern Hills, Dave Henson of Flint Hills National Golf Club and Brian Manzella of Brian Manzella Golf Academy, to name a few. The full roster of SuperStroke Staff Ambassadors, which continues to grow weekly, will soon be featured on the brand’s website at www.superstrokeusa.com with a dedicated webpage for each member.

 

“We are honored to have such a talented and respected team of professionals representing SuperStroke,” said Dean Dingman, President of SuperStroke Golf. “Golfers are always looking for a competitive edge, whether that’s a new piece of equipment that can deliver immediate results or advice from a trusted expert. This program is designed to deliver both.”

 

As part of their exclusive membership in the program, SuperStroke Staff Ambassadors will be fully outfitted with SuperStroke putter grips and SuperStroke TX1 club grips for their irons, wedges and woods. In addition, SuperStroke will utilize this knowledgeable group of golf experts in an advisory role in the development, testing and creation of future product.

 

SuperStroke Putter Grips

SuperStroke’s patented parallel technology design allows for even pressure in both hands, eliminating wrist movement in the putting stroke. This helps the golfer swing the putter more freely, making it easier to use the big muscles in the arms and shoulders, and minimizes one hand dominating the other. SuperStroke grips are long lasting and extremely shock absorbent. They are designed with a high-tech polyurethane material featuring cross traction technology that improves feel and tackiness. Combined with SuperStroke’s patented parallel technology further increases consistency.

 

SuperStroke TX1 Club Grips

SuperStroke TX1 Club Grips are comprised of two premium rubber compounds, proprietary to SuperStroke Golf. The specific compounds emerged after testing 90+ formulations during the prototyping process, gathering and implementing feedback from Professional Golfers, and an extensive testing protocol. SuperStroke TX1 Club Grips are covered with our signature Cross-Traction surface texture, which is molded into the grip during the production process. The quantity and placement of the texture was designed to provide excellent moisture wicking with the comfort and security golfers desire.

VICE Golf Earns Two Gold Medals On Golf Digest’s “Hot List”

Vice-pro-plus

Munich, Germany (May 5, 2015) VICE Golf, the German-based golf-ball company that markets its products exclusively over the internet and has been selling in the U.S. for only six months, has been awarded Gold Medals for two of its four ball models in the newly published Golf Digest “Hot List.”

In the “Hot List” revealed on May 5 and featured in the magazine’s June issue, VICE was awarded Gold Medals for its Pro and new Pro Plus balls. The Pro Plus was just introduced this month. VICE is the only “small” golf-ball company honored with the golf award.

The Pro and Pro Plus received the Gold Medal based on their ratings in four categories. They were awarded five out of five stars in Performance, four-and-a-half stars in both Innovation and Feel, and one star in Demand.

“We are thrilled and honored to have been awarded two Gold Medals,” said Rainer Stoeckl and Ingo Dullmann, who founded VICE in 2012 to offer the highest quality products directly to consumers with value pricing by selling exclusively online. “We always knew we were making the best golf balls, and it’s wonderful that Golf Digest, the world’s leading golf publication, agrees. To be able to buy high-performance golf balls like Pro and Pro Plus at these low prices speaks exactly to what VICE is all about. We want to earn more stars in the future for ‘demand.’”

The Pro ball, which is available in bright White, Neon (lime), and Flamingo (pink), is a three-piece ball with a cast urethane cover, designed for long distance and soft feel. The new Pro Plus, released to the public in the last few weeks, is a four-piece ball with a cast urethane cover and two layers surrounding the High Energy Speed Core. The Pro Plus will help a wide range of golfers looking for long distance, outstanding control, low trajectory, and quick stopping on the green.

VICE Golf ball prices may be purchased for as low as $14.95 per dozen for the Tour balls. The Gold Medal balls are $34.95 a dozen, but the cost drops to $29.95 per dozen when purchasing three or four dozen, and to $24.95 per dozen for five or more. All balls are available at www.vicegolf.com/us.
According to VICE, the Pro performs comparably to Titleist’s Pro V1, the best-selling ball in the world, but at about half the price. The Pro Plus is comparable to Titleist’s other best seller, the Pro V1x.

In the article that accompanies the list of medal winners, it reads, “Premium multilayer balls with urethane covers generally are superior because they perform well throughout the bag.” In describing the two VICE balls, Golf Digest’s editors wrote, “Multiple layers with a urethane cover offer the tour-desired mix of low driver spin and high wedge spin.”
“The gold medals validate what we’re doing, having fun and being different,” said Stoeckl and Dullmann. “It’s very exciting that an important magazine like Golf Digest agrees that having a VICE is a good thing.”

VICE Golf makes two other balls—the lower-priced, more mass-market Drive and Tour—as well as limited-edition hats and a newly announced glove, the Pure, all available only from the company’s website.
