Two-time Major Champion Bubba Watson is set to add some colour to The 146th Open Championship this week.
Bubba, who signed a long-term deal with Volvik in January, is playing a Pink or Green coloured S4 Volvik golf ball at Royal Birkdale this week – the first time either colour has appeared at a Major event. As part of his deal with Volvik, the brand leader in multi-coloured performance golf balls, Bubba can decide whether to play with a Green, Pink or White ball on any day of his choosing.
While playing Volvik S4 balls this season, Bubba has a driving average of more than 306 yards on the PGA Tour (ranked 6th for shots gained off the tee) with a swing speed of 121 mph. The four-piece S4 ball features the world’s first patented dual core within its ‘Tour Urethane’ cover for extreme accuracy and optimal spin rate, while the 3-piece VIVID range is the world’s first matt-finish coloured golf ball, offering longer distance to golfers with slower swing speeds in striking Red, Orange, Pink, Green, Lime, Blue and White colourways.
