Overload Golf Announces Partnership with Cut Golf

Here’s some food for thought. Urethane covered golf balls for less than $20 per dozen. A 3-piece Surlyn covered for less than $15 per dozen while a 2-piece Surlyn covered distance golf ball for less than $10 per dozen. That’s what Cut Golf offers golf consumers. Just because a golf ball has the stamping of a “giant” doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the “magic bullet”. The proverbial saviour of your golf game.
