Tyler Segel Srixon Ambassador

Handicap: +2
Z 965 Irons

Profile: Tyler is the NCCGA North Florida Regional Coordinator and one of the top players on the Florida Club Golf team.

Biggest Change: Since switching to the Z 965 irons, I have gained 8 yards per club and tightened the gap between miss hits. I was using the 716 Titleist CB irons before making the switch and I’m amazed at the difference my Srixon irons make. People are coming up to me all time asking to test out the irons because they are as visually appealing as any club on the market and provide great feedback.

In addition, I have convinced numerous people to purchase Srixon products which they have all loved, as well. The brand is taking over the PGA Tour as we speak, just look at how many players on tour are making the switch to better.

Phil Lodzinski Srixon Ambassador

Z 765 / Z 965 Combo Set

Profile: Phil is the Midwest NCCGA Regional Coordinator and plays for Michigan Club Golf

Biggest change: I made the switch to the 765/965 combo set because I wanted a better blend of workability and forgiveness throughout my iron setup. The 965 short irons (8-iron thru pitching wedge) allow me to shape shots left and right, high and low, and everything in between. They’ve allowed me to fine-tune my distances and dial in shots from 130 to 165 yards to more precise numbers on each shot. I’m hitting more greens and giving myself better chances for birdies.

The 765 long irons (7-iron thru 4 iron) are very forgiving, while also having the appearance and feel of a player’s iron. I’ve gained at least 5 yards with my longer irons while also being able to hit them straighter and with a more consistent ball flight. I’m making more birdies on reachable par 5s and more pars on long par 3s.

Jon Andhor Srixon Ambassador

John Andhor

Handicap: 8
Z 765 Irons

Profile: John is the Houston City Tour leader and has been playing in Nextgengolf tourneys for over 2 years.

Biggest Change: After using Bridgestone J33 combo irons for about 10 years, I finally decided it was time to make the switch to Srixon. I met up with the local Srixon Rep in Houston, and tried out a few different head/shaft combinations. I ended up fitting in the Z 765 irons with the Modus3 125 shafts.

I could see the difference in my play within the first few rounds that I played with the new irons. On mis-hits I would look away thinking that it was going to land 20 yards short, but then I would back look up to see the ball just short of pin high. I don’t have the chance to play golf as much anymore so it’s great to have the forgiveness that these clubs provide.

Cody Phillips Srixon Ambassador of the Year

Z 765 Irons

Both on and off the course I am always wearing something Srixon, and always have questions asked from friends, coworkers, and other players about the brand, which I happily answer.  I have been an avid Srixon ball user for over 5 seasons and have had the opportunity to play some of America’s top courses with the Z-Star XV including Pebble Beach, Cog Hill, TPC Treviso Bay, TPC Boston, Stockton Seaview, and Harbor Town.

I have witnessed firsthand the exceptional performance of Srixon equipment on various turf styles, weather conditions, and parts of the country which allows me to share how great it truly performs at all times. This year I was able to become more involved in marketing Srixon’s brand by creating multiple blog articles, social media posts throughout the season, and sharing new developments in the brand with playing companions. I also referred multiple friends, and fellow Lincoln Country Club members to get discounted equipment through Nextgengolf. Also, Lincoln Country Club’s pro shop did not carry Srixon golf balls prior to this season. With my support of the brand and marketing to members I played with on a weekly basis, eventually many members began using both the Q and Z star balls and Srixon balls are now fully stocked in the pro shop.

I also completed a 144 hole fundraiser in one day for Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation to raise money for breast cancer research for local families going through treatment. I wrote 24 names of women connected to Lincoln Country Club that had breast cancer at one time or another on Srixon golf balls. I used these balls throughout the 144 holes in memoriam and support of their fight. Those 24 Srixon golf balls are now on display at Lincoln Country Club which continues to market the brand in a positive way.

Lastly, I was able to win the Lincoln Country Club championship this season, with a big aspect being my new Srixon equipment. I have never had such a successful season on the course, and I think a large part of that is having 12 of 14 clubs in my bag being Srixon/Cleveland. The irons, driver, wedges, and woods are the most consistent, accurate, and reliable clubs I have ever owned. I will continue to use Srixon equipment for as long as I am playing golf. Being the Srixon Brand Ambassador of The Year is a true honor.
