If you’re a golfer that has never tried any of the Soft Feel golf balls from Srixon Golf than you might be truly missing out. Even though I have never posted an official review of the Soft Feel I can tell you (my readers) that the Soft Feel is long off of the tee, it stands up fairly well around the greens and is a joy when it comes to feel off of the tee. Not to mention, it’s very wallet-friendly. Bear in mind that the version launched in 2018 is an 11th Generation golf ball and the ball that I’ve played in the past is (according to my figures) is in the ballpark of the 8th or 9th generation.

Today, Srixon Golf announced its latest iteration of the Soft Feel. May I present the Soft Feel Brite. For all of the details of this latest golf ball please see the press release as shared below by Marketing and Communications Specialist Noelle Zavaleta. Many thanks to Miss. Zavaleta for sharing said release.

Until The Next Tee!!

So, that was some round turned in by Srixon Golf staffer Hideki Matsuyama today to win the WGC – Bridgestone Invitational. Matsuyama fired darts (Srixon Z-Star XV) into pins, striped his Srixon Golf Z 945 irons and Cleveland Golf RTX 2.0 wedges and rolled the daylights out of the ball with his TaylorMade Golf TP Collection Mullen putter. Impressive course record tying by the 25 year old. Is it just me or is there a serious youth movement going on in professional golf? Just to give some of the other guys a chance the PGA Tour needs to almost set up something for the 35-49 age group. Anyways, it’s time to shift our focus to the final Major Championship of the year. The PGA Championship.

This year the PGA Championship is being contested in Charlotte, North Carolina at the famed Quail Hollow Club. The course was founded in 1959 and has been home to the PGA Tour in the past (Wells Fargo Championship). The course originally designed by architect George Cobb has seen modifications by Mr. Arnold Palmer  and two redesigns  by Tom Fazio. Quail Hollow is also home to the “Green Mile”. Looking at the scorecard the 7,600 yard Par 71 golf course seems to favour some of the longer hitting guys on tour. With that said… who am I going to jinx by picking them to win? Honestly, anyone could win this week.

I mentioned on Twitter (@UntilTheNextTee) that it was only a matter of time before Hideki Matsuyama has a Major breakthrough. Unfortunately, I don’t think this will be his week. He really “golfed” the ball around this weekend and I just don’t think he’ll have enough gas in the tank. Look for him to be finishing with a Top-10 regardless. Rory McIlroy has beat up Quail Hollow in the past. His power is obvious and his putting when on is good. But in my estimation he’s been inconsistent this year and he won’t be hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday. Dustin Johnson. Look for him to be near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday. Those at the top of the leaderboard will be glancing over their shoulders and at the scoreboards looking for the World #1. Yes we all know the swagger is there (I compare him to a Wild West cowboy) but I think his “six-shooter” is going to misfire on the draw. Of course I am referring to his putter. Jordan Spieth. I think he’s the sentimental favourite and personally speaking I would love to see him win the “Career Grand Slam”. He didn’t really exert himself this week and it’s almost like he and his caddie Michael Greller decided to dial it back a little. He is coming off a decent week and it was a short 3 or so weeks ago that he hoisted the Claret Jug. Other guys that are going to be lurking are Brandt Snedeker, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia. So who am I going to pick?

So here it is… as much as I want to say that it’s going to be long-hitting featherweight Justin Thomas who could torch any golf course at any given time I don’t think it’s him either. I’m picking Charley Hoffman and here’s why. Hoffman always threatens in the Majors. He’s coming off very good finishes the last two weeks (2nd and 3rd place) and finds himself outside of the Top 10 in the FedEx Cup rankings. His 296 yard average off of the tee makes him long enough. Even though he is middle of the road or worse in a number of statistics I have no reason to pick him. But something happened Sunday. He vetoed his caddies decision and said that “I’m tired of finishing second”. He got aggressive and assertive and I feel that Charley has lit a fire under his own arse. This little ‘X Factor” could be the fuel that feeds the fire leading to victory.

So there you have it. Charley Hoffman for the win.
