Alright so this press release is a little late in being released. However, as some may recollect I’ve been posting about the reemergence of Lynx Golf as a brand fairly often. Why? Because there is a history of champions being crowned while playing their golf clubs. I love history! But the brand at some point lost their way. Factor in being absorbed by a huge conglomerate (Dick’s Sporting Goods) and becoming notorious as a “box store brand”. Now it’s a real problem because you have a stigma. When that happens and you appreciate history you want to see a company have a successful comeback. Like a Phoenix rising from the flames and ash.
One of the golf equipment manufacturers that was on a very short list for me to visit and swing was Lynx Golf. I’ve been following them on Twitter for a bit now while being relatively engaged in discussions with them. The product pictures that they shared intrigued me and I couldn’t wait to get down to the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show. Finally, the day came and out came my opportunity at Orange County National to make passes with their new wares. Believe me when I say that I had very high expectations for their new Prowler VT and Prowler Forged CB irons.
I’ll be writing about my experience at the Lynx Golf booth in the future but in the interim I’m going to share a press release. This press release shared by SnapMedia Golf PR sheds a little more light on the new offerings from Lynx Golf.
(Weybridge, Surrey, UK, January 19th, 2018)Lynx Golf, the global golf equipment company with headquarters in Surrey, Great Britain, will unveil its first ‘performance players range’ at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show as part of the new Lynx Prowler® range of irons, wedges, putters and bags.
The Lynx Prowler® Forged CB promises the better golfer an outstanding combination of a penetrating trajectory, feel and forgiveness and combines a cavity back with beautiful design and forging from 1020 carbon steel.
The new forged irons come in a satin chrome or gun-metal finish, with Lamkin Crossline grips.
Sitting alongside the Prowler® Forged CB club, comes the Lynx Prowler® VT muscle-back iron – combining a hollow-headed design with variable face thickness to deliver a killer combination of incredible ball-speed, higher flight and playability.
Both new tour-inspired irons have been developed in-house at Lynx’s Weybridge design HQ.
Said Lynx’s UK and European sales manager, Murray Tonry: “The challenge when creating the Prowler® Forged CB iron was to utilise all the benefits of modern materials, technology and manufacturing processes while retaining a soft feel and also delivering a level of forgiveness and ball workability that the lower-handicap and scratch player requires.
“As a result, it’s a more classically-styled cavity back iron, with a thinner top line and narrower sole that will definitely please good golfers at address without penalising distance or forgiveness.
“With the Prowler® VT, we wanted to offer an ultra-modern muscle back iron for golfers who love to hit the ball long, high and with superb levels of control. It’s packed full of technology hidden inside the head utilising variable thickness which creates ‘friendly’ spin on off centre hits, which in turn improves accuracy.”
Lynx® Golf concentrates on developing high quality, technologically-advanced but affordable golf clubs, backed up by great customer service.
In the UK, it has gained a strong foothold in ‘green grass’ golf accounts – retail operations typically run at golf courses by PGA Professionals – with clubs designed and assembled in the UK at the company’s Weybridge, Surrey, headquarters.
