Volvik To Launch 2-Time Tour Winner Orange S3 At PGA Merchandise Show

Volvik To Launch 2-Time Tour Winner Orange S3 At PGA Merchandise Show

Volvik, the #1 Color Golf Ball on Tour, announced today the company will launch their new Orange S3 golf balls at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show January 27.

The S3 is a premium, next-level ultra-performance golf ball that is the first of its kind to the US market. The S3 is a 95-compression Double-Urethane cover golf ball that has proven itself on every major professional tour worldwide and that has won numerous awards, including a Golf Digest Hot List award.

The S3 is now in play on the PGA TOUR, Web.com Tour and Champions Tour and is one of the most played models on the LPGA Tour. The Orange S3 has won twice on the LPGA Tour, making it the only Orange golf ball to win in the history of the LPGA Tour.

An extremely low driver spin and best in class durability makes the S3 an option for any advanced player looking for a leg up over the competition. Originally, the S3 was only released in a white and blue pearl color called WhiteColor, deriving from the fact that the golf ball is a hybrid of a white and color golf ball. At the same time, Volvik tour professionals began testing and putting different color S3 into play, paving the way for this consumer release. 

"What a lot of people don’t realize is how hard Urethane is to work with color," said Don Shin, President of Volvik USA. "We tested it with our tour professionals first and foremost and in the process, the Orange S3 won twice on the LPGA Tour and established itself as the top color ‘tour’ golf ball available anywhere in the world. These victories created a great demand for color S3, especially in Orange due to a lack of tour-quality golf balls available in this extremely popular color. It is our most played color on tour and our best seller in almost every category, so we are confident it will be a huge hit with our retailers.”

The S3 utilizes a reinforced Urethane cover that provides the perfect soft feel and optimal spin rates both off the tee and around the green. The S3 is powered by a Bismuth enhanced power core that optimizes distance by transferring the power from the more solid inner core to the softer outer layer, a unique technology used in all of Volvik's golf ball innovation. The soft outer layer also reduces excess driver spin, increasing the moment of inertia and centrifugal force, leading to more distance and more roll. The S3 also offers an extremely accurate flight stability by the patented 336 Quasi-Cuboctahedron dimple pattern. 

"The reaction and data from our professional staff and other professionals who have put the S3 up against the other leading premium balls on the market is that we have something quite remarkable with this ball," said Shin. "This is the next level of performance in golf balls. We will put this golf ball up against anyone out there."

World-leading technology makes the golf balls one of the most innovative and forward thinking in the marketplace.

Solid Inner Core, Soft Outer Cover - Volvik combines a solid inner core encased in a softer casing that provides the optimal spin separation and optimizes the balance of both distance and control. Optimal spin generated by the more solid inner core creates longer distance off the driver and long irons the spin increases closer to the green due to the firm outer core, producing higher spin for total control and the ability to stop on a dime on the green. 

Bismuth Mixed Outer Core - World's first patented power core with Bismuth metal provides greater explosiveness. Unlike normal metal, Bismuth expands 3.5% in volume, leading to greater energy transfer.

Double Urethane Cover - The S3 is a 1-core 2-cover golf ball. It’s what Volvik calls a double cover. The double cover combined with the fact that Volvik uses a very high-end Urethane makes S3 the most durable Urethane covered ball on the market. Optimized spin rates by Urethane cover with a unique coating process for greater durability provides improved spin control and the ultimate soft feel at impact.
