ORLANDO, Florida (July 29, 2019) – Volvik USA (volvik.com), a rapidly-growing, premium high-performance golf ball company, is becoming widely known not only for the exceptional quality and variety of its golf balls, but also for its original and ongoing support of World Long Drive competition and its participating athletes.
“In addition to Volvik’s ever-expanding reach with amateur and professional golfers worldwide, an increasing number of World Long Drive players are selecting Volvik as their ball of choice,” said Don Shin, president of Volvik USA. “With our longtime support of World Long Drive, we continue our commitment to this unique competition and its extremely talented athletes.”
Last week, the No. 1-ranked hitters in World Long Drive dominated the Roc City Rumble, in Rochester, N.Y. Volvik hitter Phillis Metis, who with a 320-yard drive secured her third victory in four WLD events this year, continued her reign atop the Women’s rankings, and Kyle Berkshire achieved his first win of the year with a 380-yard blast. This marked the third time Volvik Staff Hitters have owned both the Men’s and Women’s Division Finals.
The Volvik World Long Drive Championship is the ultimate power golf spectacle and draws not only the best long drive hitters but also avid spectators from around the globe.
The Volvik VIVID XT, the official golf ball of the World Long Drive, delivers explosive power and distance. The four-piece high performance ball features five color options that enhances focus. Its unique SF matte coating provides superior consistency and penetrating trajectory.
