Mesa, AZ - Dixon Golf, manufacturer of the High-Performance Eco-Friendly Earth golf ball, announced today that they have partnered with the FDNY (http://www.fdnygolf.com/index.cfm) to sponsor the FDNY Memorial Golf Outing, which will be held Friday, May 17 - 22 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The tournament's motto is "This will take courage…dedication…and a whole lotta balls!" and that's just fine with Dixon, because each golfer who participates in the event will receive a sleeve of Dixon Earth golf balls so they can experience for themselves the benefits of this high-performance golf ball while being 100% Eco-Friendly at the same time.
The tournament all started in May of 1992 with The Alfred E. Ronaldson Spring Golf Classic in Orange County, New York. It expanded and grew for ten years and became the "World's Largest Golf Outing". May, 2001 was the 10th and final year and more than 1,500 golfers attended. Just four months after the final "Ronaldson" September 11th happened. The world changed. In the months that followed September 11th their attendees struggled to hold themselves together.
In May of 2002, they hosted their first Memorial Golf Outing in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and welcomed firefighters and friends from around the country to join them to celebrate the lives of firefighters who were lost and the brotherhood they all share. The event has continued to get better with each passing year, and as more firefighters join the pilgrimage to Myrtle Beach. The fun and excitement of the outing has surpassed what the Tournament Committee envisioned five years ago. This event has become a celebration of their brotherhood...
"We are truly honored to be a part of such a heroic group of individuals like this," said Dane Platt, President of Dixon Golf. This tournament is a way of remembering the brave individuals who put their lives on the line everyday to protect us. It's difficult to put into words what these firefighters mean to all of us. All I can to them is…THANK YOU."
Dixon Earth - Good For The Earth Better For Your Game
Unlike other Golf Ball Brands who use harsh heavy-metal pollutants like tungsten, cobalt and lead, and contain non-renewable synthetic materials and compounds; the Dixon Earth golf ball is "green" to the core. Even the packaging is made from 100% recycled material. From core to cover, from packaging to production, Dixon Earth is setting a new standard in environmental consciousness.
Amazingly; Dixon didn't have to sacrifice playability to become environmentally friendly. Just the opposite, the Dixon Earth golf ball outperformed the Nike One Platinum, Callaway Tour ix and Titleist Pro V1, in independent testing by PGA TOUR Partners Club, and received an incredible 92% Approval Rating!
