ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “ The way I see it, there were eight par 5s and I've got to play those 4 to 6 under par to have a chance to win. I played them 4 over and I'm at even par, I'm going to miss the cut. So there's eight to 10 shots right there on simply the par 5s. That identifies and shows me where I need work. It tells me that some areas are okay, but that's the area that I've got to improve on.”

IT HAS TO BE NEW? The information remains the same. The delivery is essentially the same. Yet, slap new on it and it just might have a chance with consumers? TecTecTec has expanded its selection of golf gear with the launch of ULT-G, a GPS Golf Watch. It provides distances to the front, middle and back of greens, as well as hazards and doglegs. Available at the price of $119.99.

“Our goal has always been to provide golfers with high-tech, quality products at attainable prices, and the ULT-G perfectly aligns with this philosophy,” says Renan Lore, Director of TecTecTec. “Whether a player prefers a laser rangefinder or a wearable golf GPS watch, they can find a product that fits their needs within our expanding catalog.”

ANYTHING NEW?

It is built with Srixon’s Energetic Gradient Growth Core, which starts softer near the center and gradually becomes firmer around the perimeter. It has Srixon’s 338 Speed Dimple Pattern to reduce drag and maximizes lift.

The Srixon Soft Feel Brite is available now in North America in Brite Orange, Brite Red, and Brite Green.
