RADMOR Drops Spring Collections
All-Natural, Sustainably-Sourced Men’s and Women’s Golf Apparel (SEATTLE) – RADMOR, the golf lifestyle company crafting men’s and women’s golf apparel from meticulously-curated, all-natural materials, announces the drop of its men’s and women’s spring collections available for purchase by green-minded golfers at www.radmorgolf.com.

The 2022 spring collections showcase a variety of new offerings for men and women in seasonally-focused color palettes celebrating the world’s greatest game.
Men’s styles include the popular Taylor Polo in “Bobrad” and Retro Prints, the Batty Polo in Retro Pique and Ombre Strip Prints, and the Colby Band-Collar in Varsity and Ombre Stripe Prints.

Cobra Golf Introduces Limited Edition Black Drivers and Wedges
Carlsbad, Calif. (March 18, 2022) – Cobra Golf has introduced all-black colorways of its popular LTDx Drivers and Wedges.
The LTDx Black drivers possess the same performance and design features as the standard LTDx models but with the addition of a striking matte black finish on the crown and sole and grey stripe details.

BRIDGESTONE GOLF INTRODUCES FULL TOUR B FAMILY IN YELLOW
Leader in Golf Ball Innovation Responds to Player Demand with Yellow Models
Bridgestone Golf has released the full TOUR B line of golf balls in yellow. Featuring all the same innovative technologies and advanced performance features as the white TOUR B golf balls, the new yellow models are specifically made to satisfy player demand.
Exactly like the white TOUR B models, the yellow versions feature REACTIV iQ® cover technology, which is built with impact modifiers that make the urethane cover behave differently based on swing speed. For example, when struck with a driver or any longer club, the REACTIV iQ® cover “reacts,” as a firmer, more resilient material, providing more speed and distance. However, on slower swings with a wedge or short iron, the cover performs like a softer material, creating more dwell time and shot-stopping spin and control.
Other features of the TOUR B family of yellow golf balls include multilayer construction, patented Gradational Compression Core technology, and Active Acceleration Mantles for more ball speed and distance. And unlike many colored golf balls, the new TOUR B yellow models are not painted, as the injection molded urethane cover material already contains yellow pigment. Removing this step in the production process yields a more consistent product that performs identically to the standard white model.
The new Bridgestone TOUR B yellow golf balls will start to become available at retail in early April with a street price of $49.99/dozen.
