Do you remember the 21st night of September? Well Dixon an eco-friendly, Don Cheadle endorsed Arizona HQ’d, golf ball maker certainly does—they come in “Earth”, “Wind” and “Fire” varieties but are they as groovy as the'70s funk band?
I played a couple sleeves (the earth and the wind—the fire is aimed at top players) in a charity tournament last weekend at Wildwoode and Dixon coincidentally happened to be camped out on a par-3 contest hole. It was hit the green and win a sleeve so I ended up with some more of their spheres.
The earth (pictured above in the sand) is aimed at 5-25 handicappers and is their control and distance ball while the wind is their extreme distance/ high handicapper ball recommended for players in the 20+ ballpark, basically those who are ecstatic by every green in regulation. A couple years back Long Drive stud Ryan Winther broke his own Guinness Book of World Records mark for speed off the tee with a 235.1 mph wallop, with Dixon’s wind ball so if you want a ball that vanishes into the horizon pronto, the wind is your sphere. While I’m not too concerned about golf balls clogging up landfills, eco-friendliness is a plus, they perform up to snuff, and they’ll make a cameo in an upcoming video on that aforementioned charity tourney.
