Nike Golf announces new ONE RZN golf ball for increased distance

BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Nike Golf utilizes innovative RZN technology to create revolutionary distance for amateurs with the ONE RZN golf ball.

ONE RZN is the latest edition to the RZN family, incorporating groundbreaking technology into a golf ball suitable for a wider range of players. ONE RZN features the same larger, softer RZN core found in the new Nike 20XI tour ball, but with a slightly different formulation. This formulation is dialed and designed for increased distance when it counts.

RZN replaces conventional rubber cores with a radical new game-changing material. RZN is a highly neutralized polymer that's faster and lighter, engineered to produce longer distance and more controlled shots.

With tour proven results, Nike Golf ball engineers sought to enhance the already innovative RZN technology. Refining the formula to increase core size and performance, engineers worked to create an even faster engine for the new generation of golf balls. This larger, softer RZN core improves feel off all shots while maintaining driver distance.

"With ONE RZN, we are able to bring revolutionary advances in golf balls to a wider range of athletes," said Rock Ishii, Nike Golf's Product Development Director for golf balls. "There's not a product out there in this category of golf ball that has technology of this magnitude."

ONE RZN will be available in two versions, ONE RZN and ONE RZN X. With ONE RZN, players can expect to experience longer and straighter shots with softer feel on impact. ONE RZN X will deliver longer, more penetrating shots by generating maximum velocity on impact.

Both versions of the ONE RZN will be available globally, February 1, 2013.
