Srixon Z 565 driver receives media honor

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – May 8, 2017 – SRIXON®, a global leader in high-performance golf equipment and a brand Dedicated to Improving Your Game™, proudly announces that MyGolfSpy has named the Srixon Z 565 driver its Most Wanted Driver of 2017.

MyGolfSpy, a golf media outlet whose “mission is to inform and protect the golf consumer,” bills its Most Wanted Driver test as “the largest unbiased, data-based driver test conducted in the golf media industry.” Based on their thorough research of player data for all drivers submitted for testing, the Srixon Z 565 proved to offer the best overall performance of any model in the 2017 study.

Said MyGolfSpy of Z 565: “The best Overall Driver in 2017. The biggest shock in our driver test in years.”

The Srixon Z 565 driver delivers the most advanced innovation and best performance Srixon has ever made. The Z 565 driver promotes a high launch with slight draw bias in a forgiving 460cc profile. It features three technologies that work together to enhance ball speed across the face for increased distance:

  • Power Wave Sole: Advanced multi-step design allows the entire sole to flex, which enhances COR especially on low impacts.
  • Stretch Flex Cup Face: 6-4 Ti Cup Face has been extended farther around crown and sole to create a larger sweet spot.
  • Lightweight Crown: About 4 grams have been removed from the crown and repositioned to enhance clubhead MOI and lower the center of gravity.

“We’re very proud of this award. It is a testament to our Research & Development and Product Marketing teams both in North America and Japan, with support from our tour players and offices around the world,” said Scott Carlyle, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, Srixon/Cleveland Golf/XXIO, North America. “The Srixon Z 565 driver delivers phenomenal performance for skilled players seeking enhanced distance and accuracy, and to see those benefits validated in a comprehensive player test against the top competitor drivers is very fulfilling for all of our employees and ambassadors around the world.”
To commemorate this honor, Srixon has collaborated with PROJECT X for a limited-time offer: No Upcharge on Tour Authentic HZRDUS Hand Crafted shafts when purchasing a Z 565 driver from now until Monday, May 31, 2017. Click here for more information on this offer.
