Small company's "S" ball
flies too far, could obsolete some golf courses.
Pro Hits 400-yard Tee Shots
During Test Round
Want to Shoot an Eagle or Two?
CT - A small golf company in Connecticut has created a powerful,
new ball that flies like a U-2, putts with the steady roll of
a cue ball and bites the green on approach shots like a dropped
cat. But don't look for it on weekend TV. Long-hitting pros
could make a joke out of some of golf's finest courses with
it. One pro who tested the ball drove it 400 yards, reaching
the green on all but the longest par-fours. Scientific tests
by an independent lab using a hitting machine prove the ball
hits up to 22 yards longer than 15 major brands.
ball's extraordinary distance comes partly from a revolutionary
new dimple design. The ball is also slightly smaller that
regulation balls, which reduces air drag dramatically. The
result is a ball that gains altitude quickly, then sails like
a glider. None of the changes are noticeable in the ball itself.
this extraordinary performance, the company has a problem.
A spokesman put it this way: "In golf you need endorsements
and TV publicity. This is what gets you in the pro shops and
stores where 95% of all golf products are sold. Unless the
pros use your ball on TV, you're virtually locked out of these
outlets. TV advertising is too expensive to buy on your own,
at least for us."
"Now, you've seen how far the ball can fly. Can you imagine
a pro using it on TV and eagle-ing par-fours? He would turn
the course into a par-3. This new fly-power forces us to
sell it without relying on pro-shops. One way is to sell
it direct from our plant. That way we can keep the name
printed on the ball a secret than only a buyer would know.
There's more to golf than tournaments, you know."

ball doesn't cut five to ten strokes off of his or her average
score. Simply return the balls - new or used.
