Pin­na­cle has been known as one of the long­est golf balls on the mar­ket for a while, but now, in ad­di­tion to more dis­tance with a new for­mu­la­tion, a softer ver­sion has been in­tro­duced that al­lows more feel around the greens while still get­ting the length that this brand has been known for over the years.

De­signed, tested and man­u­fac­tured by the Acush­net Com­pany in their own state-of-the-art re­search, test­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties in Mas­sachusetts, the new Pin­na­cle Rush helps play­ers hit the ball fur­ther uti­liz­ing a newly de­vel­oped high-en­ergy core to de­liver ini­tial ve­loc­ity and an ad­vanced icosa­he­dral dim­ple de­sign for more pen­e­trat­ing and con­sis­tent ball flight.

“Pin­na­cle has been a long­stand­ing leader in its seg­ment of the mar­ket. Given our ex­ten­sive per­for­mance test­ing of these prod­ucts, we ex­pect that this lead is likely to grow,” said Michael Ma­honey, Di­rec­tor, Golf Ball Prod­uct Man­age­ment for Acush­net.

“Pin­na­cle Rush is ei­ther longer, or longer and softer, than other top sell­ing dis­tance com­peti­tors that re­tail un­der $20. Pin­na­cle Soft is longer and softer than the lead­ing com­pet­i­tive prod­ucts po­si­tioned as ex­tremely soft or low com­pres­sion.”

The Pin­na­cle Soft is the soft­est golf ball in the his­tory of the brand, and al­lows play­ers to not give up on their short game while play­ing the ball for the ex­tra dis­tance that it can pro­vide. The pro­pri­etary core for­mu­la­tion com­bines with an in­cred­i­bly soft ionomer cover to pro­duce the soft­est-feel­ing Pin­na­cle ever made. The Pin­na­cle Soft’s ad­vanced icosa­he­dral de­sign with 332 dim­ples en­sures an ideal, con­sis­tent flight.

The new Pin­na­cle lineup has some nice color op­tions as well. Pin­na­cle Rush is avail­able in both white and op­tic yel­low, while Pin­na­cle Soft is avail­able in three color op­tions: white (with black play num­ber); white (with pink play num­ber); and pink (with black play num­ber).

The hot days of sum­mer are just around the cor­ner and many who want to play golf are going to have to shift to their warm weather mode of less cloths, more ice and per­haps even play­ing at dif­fer­ent times of the day to avoid the heat in some of the real warm cli­mates around the coun­try.

An­other way to beat the heat is with a unique prod­uct whose con­cept is not new, but the de­sign for golf is rel­a­tively new—the PGF-V Per­sonal Golf Fan, which pro­vides golfers a por­ta­ble, bat­tery­op­er­ated fan that is de­signed to fit in a golf cart’s bev­er­age holder.

The new­est edi­tion of the Per­sonal Golf Fan takes the great fea­tures of the orig­i­nal prod­uct and adds vari­able speed along with im­pres­sive por­ta­ble power. De­signed to fit in cup hold­ers in golf carts, as well as boats, cars and trucks, the PGF-V pro­vides a re­fresh­ing breeze on the fair­ways.

The PGF-V is the first patented, vari­able-speed, por­ta­ble fan en­gi­neered specif­i­cally to fit in golf cart cup hold­ers. Dial up high to crank out wind speeds up to 20 mph on those re­ally hot days, whether you’re on the golf course, in your boat, re­lax­ing by the pool or work­ing hard at the of­fice.

The ver­sa­tile Per­sonal Golf Fan in­cludes screw-on cup adapters and poly­mer rings en­gi­neered to fit seven dif­fer­ent style golf cart cup hold­ers. Its new lithium-ion bat­tery is at the top of its class for per­for­mance, re­li­a­bil­ity and safety. The recharge­able bat­tery that pow­ers the fan will run 40 hours on low set­ting, 16 hours on medium and 3.5 hours on high. Its bat­tery charge time is un­der 3 hours, if com­pletely dis­charged. Pow­er­ing the unit is a high-ef­fi­ciency, high­power, ball-bear­ing, long last­ing brush­less mo­tor.

This fan is easy to use out of the box, comes with a handy car­ry­ing case and even a clear plas­tic rain cover for those spring and sum­mer show­ers. It can be di­aled up high to crank out wind speeds up to 20 mph on those re­ally hot days.

The PGF-V Per­sonal Go Fan is avail­able at: www.pgf­fan.com.
