Jack Nicklaus Launches Golf Ball Line
Posted on October 9, 2013
Jack Nicklaus is introducing his own line of golf balls. The collection features three golf balls: Nicklaus Black, Nicklaus Blue, and Nicklaus White. The balls were designed to accommodate three skill levels of player. The golf balls are initially being sold at nicklaus.com. They will also be sold in the shops at 200 Nicklaus Design courses. A percentage from every golf ball sold in the shops will be donated to the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation.Jack Nicklaus said in a statement, "We all know that the game of golf can be challenging enough, so we are trying to simplify the decision-making process of selecting the right golf ball and at the same time provide consumers the highest-quality golf balls and at a price that encourages charitable support. By buying these balls, players will get the added benefit of supporting these wonderful charities that help children in need as well as the families that dearly love them. The idea of creating three balls corresponds to the teeing areas golfers typically play. The Nicklaus White ball is designed for the players who might typically play the forward or white tees. Nicklaus Blue is designed for players who would typically play the middle or blue tees. And, finally, Nicklaus Black is designed for the single-digit or better golfer who generally plays from the back tees."
