Is there a better feeling in golf than standing there with a wedge in hand and watching your ball stop dead next to the flag? It makes you feel like a Tour player, but there’s nothing in the rulebook to stop you hitting those shots consistently!

We’re not saying it’s easy, but this is the time of year when it’s easiest. Why? Well, as you can see in the slider images above, winter greens tend to be softer and that means your pitches will stop much quicker than in the summer months. Just look at how much closer to the hole they're landing the ball in winter compared with summer!

With all this said, you need to have control over your ball. The legendary Srixon Z-Star & Z-Star XV golf balls are designed with a SpinSkin thermoplastic urethane cover for exactly this purpose. Plus, the SeRM coating means that the ball digs deeper into the grooves of your wedges for even more spin and control around the greens! So, you’ll get the same feeling as Tour players during the shot as well as when you’re watching it rest next to the hole.
