Take a look at the new Q-Star Divide golf balls from Srixon which launch in mid-July.
Srixon Introduces Q-Star Tour Divide Golf Balls
After getting a thoroughly improved design in 2020, Srixon has gone a step further with the Q-Star Tour in 2021, by announcing the Q-Star Tour Divide golf ball.
It features a new thermoplastic urethane cover that has been infused with bright pigments rather than being painted on. This 50/50 Matte Urethane cover delivers high contrast without dampening the spin and overall performance you would expect from the original Q-Star Tour golf ball.
The two-tone design has been implemented as a way for not only players to ensure better putting alignment with the 360° line, but also for players to see the speed and direction of spin on every shot.
“The new Q-Star Tour Divide looks great, but it’s so much more than that,” explains Joe Miller, European Product Manager. “Easier putting alignment and increased visual feedback on your chip and pitch shots really adds to the greenside performance. It’s a ball every golfer must try.”

Of course the ball has Srixon's FastLayer Core which is said to offer distance and soft feel thanks to the gradual transition from soft inner core, to firm outer edge.
Additionally the 338 Speed Dimple Pattern helps to increase lift and maximise distance as well.
When we tested the original Q-Star Tour ball we were impressed with the overall performance as it gave players the chance to play a ball with tour-performance credentials that is not only softer for greater control into and around the greens, but also comes at a price that many more will be willing to pay for all-round performance of this standard.
With this new design, this performance should remain whilst also giving a more clear alignment aid to those who need it.
There will be three designs to choose from; Yellow/Red, Yellow/Blue & Yellow/Orange.
The ball will go on sale on the 15th July 2021 and will retail at £34.99/€40.

A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.
A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well.
Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
