Lynx golf is apparently still around. And AWFUL at social media

Recommended Posts

Lynx golf is apparently still a thing. I even peeped their new irons and they look pretty visually appealing.

 

​I'm posting this because whoever runs their twitter account is CLUELESS lol. Most of yall are probably aware of the No Laying Up guys and maybe the Club Pro Guy on twitter. They are hilarious accounts. Well Lynx doesn't think much of them and won't even play along with jokes about it despite both having HUGE twitter followings and Lynx having less than 4k.

 

​I don't have the time to cover it all but thought I'd at least share the tweet from the main NLU account. You can click on the one its quoted from there. Both threads are just hilariously bad as far as promoting yourself/company on social media. If you want a "How not to do it." Than this is it. lol

If you play LYNX golf. You do not have a twitter account... it's just that old school.

Apparently a British company now.

And yes, I think MGS should test these and some of the other UK brands; Japan isn't the only overseas market.

Around $540 US for a set of forged blades.

Looks like they'll be at the PGA show booth 1883. If anyone stumbles across them would you mind taking a glance for me?

The clubs looks good tbh.

 

They just aren't very bright when it comes to marketing themselves.

 

Side note: I'd kill to go to the PGA show.

Find a friend in the Golf business. There's always a way to tag along. I went; paid my own way, my own badge cost (which was minimal) and didn't have a problem. Demo Day at Orange County National is beyond belief if you're a club junkie!

Agree with the above sentiments that their social media people need to be forced to read the Wendy's and Moon Pie Twitter accounts, just to figure out what they're supposed to be doing.

 

That said, in addition to the blades posted above, these forged CBs in gunmetal look sharp (ahem, except for the cat face, which doesn't thrill me):

These clubs are gorgeous! I had no idea this company still existed. I thought they had been gone for years. I remember them from back in the Fred Couples days.

CPG and NLU are two of my favourite accounts and I honestly couldn't believe the reaction they got. Literally free advertising, yet kept asking CPG to stop saying he was associated with them.

 

Side note: the forged CBs look like sex on a stick

      Lynx Golf Continues Momentum with Launch of LynxGolfUSA.com, Release of Black Cat Lines
        (Weybridge, Surrey, UK) – Lynx® Golf – the iconic equipment brand trusted by multiple major championship winners over its storied history – unveils LynxGolfUSA.com, a new website providing American golfers access to the manufacturer’s innovative lines, including the new Black Cat Series.

      Launch of the site coincides with new social media channels, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and will feature unique blog content, newsletter sign-up and more. Bolstering the introduction of the new site and social media channels is the U.S. debut of the latest generation of the famed Black Cat line, which delivers leading-edge technology in an attractive and classic aesthetic.  
       
      “The U.S. site is the latest step in our journey to bring this iconic brand back to a place of prominence in the American golf market,” says Stephanie Zinser, CFO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “Black Cat is the perfect series to accompany our website and social launches as golfers have fond memories of previous iterations, but that nostalgia will quickly be replaced with modern performance that maximizes both distance and accuracy.”
       
      The Black Cat line features innovations unique to the Lynx brand: Effective Energy Transfer – Each driver, fairway wood and hybrid are engineered with proprietary technology designed to disperse energy across the club face, offering greater forgiveness on off-centre hits.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Weight Bar System – Found in the line’s driver and fairway woods, the system transfers weight from the front to the back of the clubhead, giving players control over their preferred launch and spin rate.                                                                                                                                                                             Hollow-Head Technology with Variable Face Thickness – Each iron distributes weight across the hitting surface while a polymer-filled hollow cavity in the head allows for one of the thinnest forged faces in the industry. This provides more effective energy transfer across the face for increased ball speeds and a higher, more stable MOI throughout the set.  Over the past several years, the Lynx brand has made a resounding impact in the U.K., as the company has recorded double-digit annual sales increases every year since 2013. This growth has been driven by several successful products which will be featured on LynxGolfUSA.com including the popular Prowler VT irons, Prowler Forged irons, and Tigress line of women’s clubs.                                    
      “Without our success in Europe and around the world, days like today are not possible” says Steve Elford, CEO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “What golfers are about to see and experience in the U.S. started nearly a decade ago when our team set out to restore the glory once associated with the iconic brand.”
        
      Founded in the 1970’s by John Riley Sr. and Carl Ross, Lynx® Golf quickly established a massive fanbase among the game’s best players. This included legendary ambassadors who trusted the brand to help them capture victories at the 1992 Masters and 1994 US Open, among other wins.
       
      Lynx’s renowned product lines include everything from TOUR-caliber clubs, such as the Prowler VT irons, to products geared for mid-to-high handicappers. At the professional level, the brand continues to draw talent, as its ambassadors include the legendary Dame Laura Davies and former European Tour standout, and current Sky Sports TV presenter, Nick Dougherty, as well as LET players Lydia Hall, Becky Brewerton and Trish Johnson.  
        About Lynx® Golf

In the UK, it has gained a strong foothold in ‘green grass’ golf accounts – retail operations typically run at golf courses by PGA Professionals - with clubs designed and assembled in the UK at the company’s Weybridge, Surrey, headquarters.

      They'll begin with a bio of themselves and their games so you can see which tester might most resemble your playing ability and some initial thoughts on the looks of the clubs fresh out of the boxes from the UK.  
      Over the next six weeks or so, they will be returning to the thread to share their thoughts and answer any specific questions you may have about the irons, so check back here regularly to see how they are performing for the testers. 

      Testers for the Black Cats are

      Do you remember when Baby Got Back and End of the Road topped the billboard charts? If so,  then you will remember when Lynx irons won a couple Major Championships in the early 90's with Fred Couples and Erine Els, and that the cat symbol was one of the coolest logos in golf. If you don't remember those songs...well there is always google!!!  
      LYNX disappeared from the mainstream for quite a while---you can read about LYNX announcing it's return to the US last year in this as usual great piece by John Barba The Cat is Back   
      So what does this mean for the forum.....a great testing opportunity as usual.   Lynx is providing 4 sets of the Prowler VT and 4 sets of the Black Cat irons for you to test, review and keep.    Not sure which one fits your game, take a few moments and check them out on the website--at the time this was posted the site is undergoing some maintenance, but you should still be able to see which model interests you.

      Hey guys,


       
      We have recently taken up golf and are now on a very tongue-in-cheek journey to becoming scratch golfers. Don’t worry, we’re closer to landing on the moon at this rate.


       
      We document each round and would love to hear any feedback, tips or if anyone else around London/Essex wants to play.


       
      Our latest video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6K8KtmpGbA


       
      Check it out, if you can!
