Srixon has announced the all-new Q-Star Tour Divide ball, which officially launches in Australia and New Zealand in mid-October.

 “The new Q-Star Tour Divide looks great, but it’s so much more than that,” said Brian Schielke, general manager at Srixon. “Easier putting alignment and increased visual feedback on your chip and pitch shots really adds to the greenside performance. It’s a ball every golfer must try.”

The Q-Star Tour Divide delivers a new way to see the game, with its new thermoplastic urethane cover that has been infused with bright pigments rather than being painted on. The 50/50 matte urethane cover delivers a high-contrast, matte cover that provides the same tour-level spin and stopping power golfers have come to expect from the original Q-Star Tour, but now comes in three dual colour offerings.

With Divide’s unique two-tone cover construction, putting alignment comes easy with a 360-degree line, while every shot will produce a strobe effect to help show off the speed and direction of spin.

Divide might not look like a classic golf ball, but it still delivers true tour performance. Featuring the same FastLayer Core and 338 Speed Dimple Pattern found on the classic Q-Star Tour, Divide provides the distance and control expected from a tour-calibre golf ball.

Key technologies:

50/50 matte urethane cover: Each Divide cover is yellow on one half and red, blue or orange on the other. This high contrast matte cover makes spin visible and putting alignment easy. Plus, it’s cast from soft urethane for tour-level spin and stopping power.

360-degree alignment line: The longer your alignment line, the easier it can be to line up your putts. And with Divide’s one-of-a-kind seam line running around the entire golf ball, you get 360 degrees of alignment so you can putt with perfect aim.

FastLayer core: The new FastLayer core offers distance and soft feel without compromise due to a gradual transition from soft inner core to firm outer edge.

338 Speed Dimple Pattern: Providing a penetrating ball flight in any conditions, the optimal dimple design increases lift and reduces drag to maximise distance.

Price: $44.95 per dozen.

Colour offerings: yellow/red, yellow/blue, yellow/orange.
