Cameron Champ Wins with Z-Star XV

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Srixon ball loyalist, Cameron Champ, has won the PGA Tour’s Safeway Open in Napa, CA. Champ has now accumulated two PGA Tour wins to go along with one Korn Ferry Tour victory in less than two years since switching to the Srixon Z-STAR XV golf ball. Champ, the Tour’s longest player, places unique demands on his golf ball—one that responds to his unmatched speed off the tee and also gives him the feel around the greens that a PGA Tour player demands. This week, on his way to a one-shot victory, Champ finished first in Driving Distance and first in Scrambling. This is a testament to the talent of Cameron Champ and the golf ball he chooses to play!

Honma Launches New XP-1 Product Line Worldwide

CARLSBAD, CA – Honma officially launched its new game-improvement product, the XP-1. The full line of product includes drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons for both men and women bringing legendary Honma craftsmanship to golfers across a wide range of skill levels.

XP-1 drivers feature an inspired playing position appearance and the industry’s lightest carbon crown which enables Honma engineers to create internal draw-bias weighting and high MOI. The club head uses Honma’s innovative Double Slot technology that allows the entire front of the driver to flex, with more flex occurring in the heel and toe to help retain speed and accuracy on mishits, including shot enhancing gear effect.

Honma designed and produced a new series of lightweight VIZARD shafts in Sakata to complement the performance of the XP-1 head. The new 43 and 63-gram VIZARD shafts have a unique blend of a soft mid-section and higher torque with enough stiffness in the butt and tip to allow the golfer to feel the head for better timing and deliver it consistently to impact with more speed. The exclusive Honma non-rotating adjustable hosel maintains the precisely located shaft spine in the same location while offering a multitude of settings for face angle, loft and lie.

XP-1 fairway woods and hybrids were designed with the innovative double slot, a low and deep center of gravity and a thin, fast face for high launch with long carry distance. Fairway woods and hybrids were holistically designed with the beautifully crafted clubhead and VIZARD shaft working together to provide performance for the game improvement golfer.

XP-1 men’s irons feature a hybrid construction with low CG’s and fast faces to create long carry distance. The hollow long irons (4-7) have tungsten placed in the sole for launch and stability on mis-hits while the short irons (8-SW) have a deep cavity for added forgiveness and straighter distance throughout the set. XP-1 irons feature Honma VIZARD shafts with an ascending weight flow design, amorphous metal fiber in the tip, with soft feeling but consistent and stable performance designed to complement the head.
