Galvin Green Unveils Capsule Collection For First Major of 2023

VÄXJÖ, SWEDEN – Ahead of this year’s opening Major Championship next month, leading high-performance apparel brand Galvin Green is introducing a limited-edition First Major of The Year capsule collection featuring a new waterproof jacket and two floral print shirts that embody the iconic sights associated with the eagerly anticipated event.

Inspired by the key stretch of holes and the colorful botanical beauty synonymous with one of golf’s most traditional championships, the capsule collection consists of the contemporary AMEN GORE-TEX jacket in a fashionable look and two striking MOORE shirts in bright colorways.

A total of eight distinctive colors come together to form the three refreshing garments. They include Green and Pink – in the fitting Golf Green and Azalea Pink tones – plus accents of Yellow applied to the brand name and logo in honour of the famous flagsticks and tournament emblem for an added special touch.

“Our caddie-inspired jacket introduced for this special event last year was so popular that we’ve developed another style, along with two stunning shirts,” said Designer Batur Raza Muhammad. “With the new AMEN jacket, we wanted to offer golfers the top levels of performance required on the memorable stretch of holes towards the start of the back nine at the world-renowned layout, while also offering an exceptional modern look.

“The MOORE shirts are packed with bright colors to resemble the symbolic Azaleas and pristine green fairways that the game’s greatest golfers play on during one of the most exciting weeks of the golfing calendar. The vibrant shirts perfectly compliment the jacket and bring a touch of flare to the capsule collection, while offering an enticing appeal that we’re certain will catch the eye of golf fans across the world,” he added.

The full-zip AMEN GORE-TEX Paclite® jacket is constructed using bluesign®-approved fabric to deliver 100% waterproof and windproof capabilities, plus excellent breathability. Designed with lightweight fabrics for unrestricted freedom of movement, the predominantly light grey jacket with white paneling features a contrasting golf ball dimple print and a yellow and green brand logo to the chest for a supremely eye-catching look. A repositioned side seam and elasticated drawstring at the hem deliver a perfect fit, while front pockets keep hands warm and dry.

Designed to encapsulate the radiant floral surroundings, the pink MOORE shirt incorporates seven different shades of color, including Azalea Pink; Blush Pink; Deep Pink; White; Golf Green; Holly Green; plus micro accents of Yellow.

The green MOORE shirt captures the bold green landscape through the use of Golf Green and Holly Green colorways, as well as subtle hints of White and micro accents of Yellow. A micro-dot pattern across both shirt styles delivers a daring texture in keeping with modern fashion trends to ensure golfers will stand out for all the right reasons.

Both MOORE polo shirts are made using VENTIL8™ PLUS fabric that provides excellent moisture-transportation properties and breathability to keep the body dry and cool, while offering UV 20+ protection in warm temperatures. Easy to maintain, the stylish shirts also dry quickly and without the need to iron.

XXIO Launches All-New Prime: Elegance Meets Speed and Power

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – XXIO®, a global leader in premium lightweight golf equipment, is excited to announce the all-new XXIO Prime. The XXIO Prime is slated to officially launch in North America April 14, 2023.

The XXIO Prime features elevated power, control, and speed performance, all in an advanced set of lightweight clubs made for the moderate swing speed golfers.

“Crafted for golfers who’ve lost some speed over time but are still looking to add distance and maintain accuracy, this new XXIO Prime delivers,” said Chuck Thiry, Vice President of XXIO. “This innovative design is created with lighter components in the Driver, Fairways, and Hybrids, delivering more MOI for straighter, more powerful distance. To further help with swing speed, we included Weight Plus Technology, which counterbalances and stabilizes the club, creating a more efficient path, more consistent contact, and greater ball speed.”

Designed to provide exceptional forgiveness using luxury materials that provide less strain on the swing via aerodynamics, the XXIO Prime gives golfers the consistency and precision they are looking for while maintaining effortless performance.

In addition to the XXIO Prime, XXIO is also introducing XXIO Prime Royal Edition in Men’s and Ladies’ versions. Each option offers exclusive materials and specific performance features that accentuate the swing with remarkable ease and ultralight feel.

Key Innovations Inside the XXIO Prime:

  • Rebound Frame: Featured on the Driver, Fairway Woods, Hybrids, and Irons, Rebound Frame uses an alternating pattern of stiff and flexible zones designed to transfer more energy into the golf ball at impact for increased ball speed and distance on every strike.
  • Weight Plus Technology: Places extra weight at the butt end of the shaft to stabilize the club path for faster, more consistent swings. Concentrates more weight towards the grip reduce the amount of force required to lift the clubhead and guide it to an ideal swing position.
  • ActivWing: Uses aerodynamics to stabilize the clubhead in the beginning of the downswing, tightening the impact pattern and optimizing the face angle for better contact without sacrificing swing speed.
  • Super-TIX 51AF Titanium Face: Each Driver and Iron is made of Super-TIX 51AF Titanium, an incredibly strong yet lightweight alloy for thinner faces that flex more and add ball speed to every shot.
  • SP-1200 Shaft: Premium SP-1200 shafts are constructed with high-performance carbon fiber and an advanced resin matrix, resulting in lightweight graphite shafts with the optimal balance of strength and flexibility.
