What we say...
Srixon’s revolutionary Q-Star Tour Divide is the golf ball that every golfer must try.
Srixon’s new Q-Star Tour Divide golf ball is designed to offer visual feedback through it’s two-tone half-and-half cover, making spin and speed visible and putting alignment easy. It’s cast from soft urethane for tour-level spin and stopping power.
The 50/50 matte cover delivers a high contrast while providing the same tour-level spin and stopping power you’ll find in the original Q-Star Tour. But instead of being painted on, Srixon have infused the Divide with bright pigments.
With the ball’s unique two-tone cover construction, putting alignment comes easy with a 360° line, while every shot will produce a strobe effect to help show off it’s speed and direction of spin.
Divide might not look like a classic golf ball, but it still delivers true tour performance through the bag.
It features the same FastLayer Core and 338 Speed Dimple Pattern found on the classic Srixon Q-Star Tour.
The core is designed to offer distance and soft feel without compromise due to a gradual transition from its soft inner core to firm outer edge.
The renowned dimple pattern is designed to provide a penetrating ball flight in any conditions by increasing lift and reducing drag.

The Divide will be available in a choice of three colour combinations – yellow/orange, yellow/red and yellow/blue.
How the Srixon Q-Star Tour fits into their balls line-up
Srixon Z-Star (£39.99)
Srixon’s original premium ball, the Z-Star was updated in 2021 and is ideal if finesse around the greens and pinpoint approach shots are your keys to your scores. A three-piece 0.6mm-urethane-covered ball, Z-Star offers 90 compression, long distance through low driver spin, a mid flight and the highest greenside spin.
The FastLayer Core starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes firm around its edge, giving high-speed players exceptional feel and plenty of ball speed for maximum distance. The thicker thermoplastic urethane cover features Spin Skin with SeRM, for maximum iron and wedge spin. 338 dimple reduces drag and improves flight for more distance.
Srixon Z-Star XV (£39.99)
Srixon’s only four-piece ball, the XV was updated in 2021 with everything from its molecules to its dimples pushed to the limit. Used by Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama and 2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry, it’s longer than Z-Star thanks to a reformulated inner core boosts overall resiliency for a faster snap off the clubface for more ball speed and distance.
Expect a mid-high flight and soft feel (102 compression) and plenty of greenside spin thanks to its 0.5mm urethane cover which uses Spin Skin with SeRM. The 338 dimple pattern reduces drag and improves flight.
Srixon Z-Star Diamond (£39.99)
The newest ball in Srixon’s Z-Star series, the three-piece Diamond is played by Brooks Koepka, and combines the best of Z-Star and XV. The new FastLayer Core starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes firm around its edge, giving high-speed players exceptional feel and plenty of ball speed for maximum distance. The thicker thermoplastic urethane cover features , for maximum iron and wedge spin. 338 dimple reduces drag and improves flight for more distance.

What Srixon say about the Star Divide golf ball
“The new Q-Star Tour Divide looks great, but it’s so much more than that,” explains Joe Miller, Srixon’s 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.”
