Santa Barbara, CA, June 15, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- It was an especially fun last couple of weeks at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and the St. Jude Classic when several Hacky Sack®-like indoor golf balls called The Floppy® showed up at the tournaments with Arrive Golf Group’s Tour Representative. The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram newspaper reported “When Lee Janzen retrieved a spongy indoor practice ball at the Colonial range, he jokingly fired at John Daly from about 30 yards. Not missing a beat, Daly struck the ball in mid-air and sent it back toward Janzen, drawing 'ooohs' and 'aahs' from about a dozen people who witnessed a feat that drew comparisons to Woods' memorable TV commercial,” wrote staff writers Eric Zarate and Jimmy Burch.
The Floppy® is the first indoor golf ball of its kind. It is made of a proprietary fill core, surrounded by a rubber shell and a hand-knit cover. The Floppy® spins like a real golf ball with true feel and feedback. Aim at a wall or window and the ball bounces back towards the player without damage. Professional players work pitch and chip shots and improve their short game using the ball. This is safe for them to use in hotel rooms to confidently accelerate through impact indoors and get practice time in anywhere.
The Floppy is manufactured by Up & Down, Inc and is available at selected locations at Dick’s, Golf Galaxy, Edwin Watts, PGA Tour Superstores and Roger Dunn.
