Josh Johns

Josh Johns

Handicap: 8
Z85, U85 Combo Set

Profile: Josh is a City Tour player in Cincinnati, and consistently attends National Nextgengolf events such as the City Championship.

Biggest Change: Since switching to Srixon, I definitely have the best looking clubs in my group. I’ve also convinced some jealous friends to switch as well. The U85 long irons allow me to be confident when staring down a long approach shot, and the Z85’s allow me to dial in the accuracy with my shorter clubs. 

My favorite thing about 2018 was playing TPC Louisiana in the City Tour National Championships, because it allowed me to represent my city on a PGA level course!

Jake Weis Srixon Ambassador

Jake Weis

Handicap: 2.5
Z 785 , U 65, 785 Combo Set, RTX 4

Profile: Jake is the NCCGA Club President and player for the Missouri State University Club Golf Team

Biggest change: The biggest change I have experienced is in the wedge game. Consistency is something I look for in a golf club and nothing is more consistent than the RTX 4. Multiple times in each round I can trust the shot I want to play because I know how the ball is going to react off different types of lies. I would recommend these wedges to any player who wants to take their creativity and control to the next level.

Lastly, the new Z 785 drive is simply unreal. I’ve never hit a driver that has produces such a high rate of ball speed with such a soft fell at impact. I have picked up a consistent 10+ yards off the tee that has allowed me to reach more 5’s and score more with my wedges on shorter par 4’s.

Adam Marcoulier Srixon ambassador

Adam Marcoulier

Handicap: 2.9
Z Star XV, U65 (3 iron), Z765 (4-PW) RTX 4

Profile: Adam is the team captain for the 2019 City Tour Championship winning team, the Green Jackets, and is a cross handed golfer

Biggest Change: The biggest change I have experienced with the Cleveland/Srixon products is the consistency I enjoy throughout the bag, especially with the golf ball. I’ve been playing the ball exclusively for three years now as I haven’t found another ball react better in all conditions, especially when its windy. Each and every round I can trust the shot I want to play because I know how my ball is going to react. Consistency is always something I’m looking for in any product regardless of the conditions. This club and ball combo delivers!

2019 ambassador of the year

Srixon Ambassador Scott Brinkman

Handicap: 8.2

My path to golf has been different than most ambassadors. Growing up I played and coached competitive hockey here in the Bay Area. It wasn’t until my hospitality career gravitated towards golf after college with an offer from Pebble Beach that I picked up a club and got hooked. Being spoiled by playing Del Monte on a frequent basis made it easy to practice the game and I quickly fell in love with the chase and started playing 50+ rounds a year since then. It wasn’t until I got involved with Nextgengolf that I experienced organized golf and was able to be exposed to the rest of the golf industry.

Now I had never been a “brand loyal” guy having only played clubs I was able to buy from friends. Naturally, when Nextgengolf offered the opportunity to apply to be a brand ambassador for Cleveland/Srixon, I was insanely curious. I knew a lot about Cleveland wedges having had them exclusively through friends but didn’t know much about Srixon and the rest of the company.

From the minute I was awarded the opportunity, I was hooked on the Srixon/Cleveland brand. Becoming a part of a brand that is fun to work with allowed me to feel like I was making an impact in golf while sharing my passion for the game in my own way. I experienced being fit and buying my first brand new set of irons through this program, Srixon 565’s. The process was incredibly easy, starting with a quick fitting from a friend and then to the Srixon website where inputting custom lengths, lofts, lies, and grips was a breeze.

Irons were quickly followed by my first set of brand-new Wedges from Cleveland that I again, customized and built with ease through the custom catalog. Then came my love for the Z-Star XV’s. Like many newish golfers, I played any balls I could find while learning but those days are long gone. Z-Stars XV’s entered my bag and haven’t left. I have grown to love challenging everyone I play with to try them against their ball with many deciding to make the #switchtobetter. Being able to share my experience with Z-Stars and along with my Srixon irons gave me pride in what I was representing and showed a lot of people how to become open minded towards the Srixon/Cleveland brand.

Thank you to the Srixon/Cleveland brand for allowing me to share my passion for golf in my own way while improving my game in ways I haven’t previously experienced. I wish everyone in 2020 more golf, lower scores, lasting memories, and new friends as that is what this game is all about.
