a strenuous inspection process to ensure consistency that even the finest mass produced ball do not have.
Clear golf balls are not available in stores or green-grass pro shops, but only through the Clear Sports invitation-only membership program, so they are exclusive and marketed to players looking for the best performance. The annual membership fee is $950 and includes 12 dozen golf balls.
When you look under the hood of these balls, you can see and feel that they are special. They have a great, soft feel around the greens with excellent spin off the wedges. The Clear Red is a softer-feeling ball while the Clear Black is firmer and designed for those who want distance above all else. Both balls deliver excellent distance, but feel around the greens is the key to scoring. The company believes in fitting the balls to an individual’s game.
Clear’s proprietary core is the engine of the golf ball, producing the highest C.O.R. (coefficient of restitution) of any performance golf ball on the market, according to the company. The higher C.O.R. translates to greater speed of the ball at impact. Greater speed generates longer distance. These balls are manufactured with a cast thermoset Urethane process, a superior process that is selectively used by the market leaders in performance golf balls. Clear‘s proprietary core technology combined with a premium cast thermoset Urethane cover provides a winning combination of distance, spin, control and feel.
Clear was founded in 2014 with a mission to create the world’s best performing sports equipment. The Clear inspiration began with golf and after years of research, development and testing, one of the finest USGA conforming golf balls was created.
The Clear team carried the same principles of peak performance and competitive advantage forward with the design of the Clear 260 and Clear 300 tennis racquets. Clear racquets are designed with the most advanced technology and materials available to create frames using a proprietary Dual Resonance Technology (DRT) that offer more power and precision, with less effort for an exceptionally arm-friendly racquet.

Most golf instructional books come from so-called experts and involve a ball, club and at least a practice facility to actually work on the skills detailed on the pages.
But one of the more interesting new books on golf that we have found comes from the United Kingdom—this being the Open Championship month—it is a good time to look at this bit of instruction about parts of the game that rarely get much attention and always seemed to be taken for granted by people who have played for a while.
“How to Play Golf Without Actually Hitting a Ball” is a must-have addition to any golf bag or clubhouse and shares with its readers the many unwritten nuances of playing the sport— not the “here is how you grip the club” kind of advice.
When author Frankie Tute played his first round of golf, he instantly knew it was “the” sport for him. There was plenty to learn, but Tute quickly grasped the game’s appeal and grew to become a successful social player.
But Tute credits much of his success, and the fact that others enjoyed playing with him, to knowing the non-playing rules that govern what is a complex and tradition-rich game. In his unique book, these very rules are laid out to help any golfer discover new ways to both enjoy and improve their time on the course.
“A golf course is a golf course no matter where in the world we play it, the same etiquette and rules apply to us all as does our behaviour on the golf course, which, to me, is so important. It is not all about how well you hit your ball but what goes on around you in that simple matter. Decorum,” he notes in the book.
“I take the things most golfers have to learn about through trial-and-error, and explain them in a simple fashion anyone can understand,” explains the author in talking about his new book. “From what to do when you first show up at the golf course and how to prepare your scorecard, all the way to the importance of not holding up play and how to show courtesy to beginners.
“Many people are commenting that my book is the only place they’ve found particular bits of information they’ve been wondering about for so long. Believe me, the book has been decades of work in the making and I’m so proud to be helping my fellow golfers become well-rounded players away from their actual hall-hitting techniques.”
