Always looking for a way to improve the game he loves (while improving his bottom line at the same time), 18-time major winner Jack Nicklaus announced Monday that he is entering the golf ball business.
To start, the new line will include three different golf balls that each correspond to the tee a player normally uses on the course -- the Nicklaus Black, Nicklaus Blue and Nicklaus White.
"The idea of creating three balls corresponds to the teeing areas golfers typically play," Nicklaus says. "The Nicklaus White ball is designed for the players who might typically play the forward or white tees. Nicklaus Blue is designed for players who would typically play the middle or blue tees. And, finally, Nicklaus Black is designed for the single-digit or better golfer who generally plays from the back tees."
"We all know that the game of golf can be challenging enough, so we are trying to simplify the decision-making process of selecting the right golf ball and at the same time provide consumers the highest-quality golf balls and at a price that encourages charitable support. By buying these balls, players will get the added benefit of supporting these wonderful charities that help children in need as well as the families that dearly love them."Nicklaus.com CLICK HERE for Equipment news, photos, ClubTest reviews, custom clubs, more For more news that golfers everywhere are talking about, follow @si_golf on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our YouTube video channel.
