Colored golf balls are making a comeback and Srixon is leading the charge. The new Z-Star Tour Yellow and Z-Star X Tour Yellow golf balls take advantage of the psychological effects that the colors yellow and green produce. Yellow is the most visible color in the spectrum and green helps you calm down and concentrate. By playing the Z-Star Tour Yellow golf balls you will be able to track your balls easier and will feel calmer and more confident at address. Keep reading for more details!

Sports Psychology and Your Mental Edge

Tiger Woods wears red on Sunday. Lance Armstrong wears yellow. Baseball players wear eye black. The marriage of colors and sports results in the attempt to maximize your potential by tapping your psychological reaction to certain colors. By analyzing color effects on golfers, the Srixon Sports R&D Team has developed a colored golf ball that combines super-visible yellow with a calm and focus-inducing green.

See the Ball, Hit the Ball, Golf Better

Countless studies and daily experience tells us that yellow is the most visible color in the spectrum. It’s bright, crisp and catches our eye, which is why we use yellow legal pads, why our kids ride in yellow school buses and why stoplights use yellow to tell us to slow down…or speed through! Just like yellow, green also has a strong impact, and is pleasing to the eye and lifts our spirits — springtime, fresh produce, green rooms for actors, Mountain Dew cans and others take advantage of green. Compared to white golf balls, the Tour Yellow golf balls are easier to find, easier to track, they stimulate and focus your vision while steadying your mind.

The Insides Count

It’s not just color that matters. The Z-Star golf balls are played on Tour by Pros Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, Henrik Stenson, Tim Clark and John Rollins. Both the Z-Star and Z-Star X are 3-piece urethane balls with a seamless 324-dimple cover and Energetic Gradient Growth core. The result is increased ball speed, high launch and low spin. The ball’s construction and premium materials make for a durable, long-lasting golf ball that plays as good as it looks.

Player Profiles for Choosing your Golf Ball

The weather here finally cooperated and warmed up, so I’ve been able to hit the links and try out some new gear. I was pleasantly surprised that the switch to the colored Yellow balls from Srixon made a difference. I used my clubs from last year and played a familiar course, so either I was really lucky or the ball made a difference. After I convinced a few skeptics to try a few shots it became obvious that the Tour Yellow golf balls are not just a gimmick. These are one of the best golf balls available in the first place, so with the addition of the Tour Yellow options you can give expensive white golf balls a run for their money. Give yourself the mental edge and take advantage of sports psychology — go yellow!
