Pinnacle Gold and Pinnacle Bling model golf balls set to debut

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. -- Golfers who rely on the powerful distance of Pinnacle golf balls will gain an even softer feel with the latest Pinnacle Gold and Pinnacle Bling models, available in golf shops beginning Oct. 1.

A longstanding leader in the distance golf ball category, Pinnacle delivers outstanding, consistent distance tee-to-green in its flagship Gold and Gold Ribbon golf balls, along with improved feel that's softer than ever.

Bling golf balls provide power with pizzazz, combining Pinnacle performance and quality with new High Optix colors to maximize the fun in every shot.

PINNACLE GOLD & GOLD RIBBON
The new Pinnacle Gold and Gold Ribbon golf balls feature a high-velocity, softer-compression core that provides long distance with a consistent flight for better carry. The softer core, along with a soft ionomer cover blend, produces a very soft feel, particularly on finesse shots around the green.

"Golfers love the powerful distance they get from any Pinnacle golf ball," said Michael Mahoney, Director of Golf Ball Product Management, Acushnet Company. "When we asked those golfers what improvements they'd like to see, they wanted the same outstanding distance with even softer feel. That was our design goal, and it's what R&D has delivered in the new Pinnacle Gold models."

Pinnacle golf balls, from core to cover, are designed, tested and manufactured by Acushnet Company engineers in the company's own world-class manufacturing facilities to provide the highest quality and consistency, shot after shot and ball after ball.

"The more consistent you make a product, the better and more consistent it will perform," continued Mahoney. "Our investment in research and development delivers unsurpassed technology and precision to the manufacturing process, ensuring that every Pinnacle golf ball provides outstanding quality and consistent performance to every golfer."

Pinnacle Gold is offered in two color options, Bright White and High Optix Yellow. Pinnacle Gold Ribbon is available in Bright White. Gold Ribbon golf balls are also imprinted with the Susan G. Komen Foundation pink "running ribbon" logo in support of breast cancer awareness.
