You can be forgiven for not being familiar with the name Dean Snell, but I have a feeling that will change. For those in the golf (and aerospace) industry his is a household name. With iconic labels like Titleist ProV1 and TaylorMade TP to his name (as part of the development team), a handful of other name-drop golf balls, and a fist-full of patents, what else is left for him to do? Why strike out on your own, of course!

March 2015 heralded the direct-to-market launch of Snell Golf with two golf balls named Get Sum and My Tour Ball. It takes some big (golf) balls to fire a shot across the bow of the industry giants, but with his pedigree, Dean Snell was well positioned to do so.

I recently tested the Get Sum and My Tour Ball, and I was impressed by both finish, and performance.

Get Sum

Right out of the sleeve this ball looks sleek and slippery. A bright white Surlyn cover (also available in optic yellow) with large shallow dimples. It’s nice and soft, but not too soft, and it holds its line in the wind. It feels really solid…
