Looks like former PGA Tour player “Disco” Dick Zokol may have the last laugh after all. Not only was Richard Zokol recently named to the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame, but his penchant for listening to music on the golf course could be finally reaching mainstream acceptance. Many golf fans dubbed Zokol as “Disco Dick” for his penchant for wearing headphones during tournaments so he could listen to music between shots.
Now PUMA Golf has released two styles of earphones, including the PUMA Pro-Performance sport buds, which can be used during a work out, practice, warm up or round of golf. The Pro-Performance is mic compatible with most phones, computers and audio devices to play, pause, change volume and even answer calls. These performance sport buds come in black, pink and vibrant orange.
The company is also offering the PUMA El Diego, an in-ear earphone with foam ear-tips for comfort and fit. The El Diego is available in black, pink, vibrant orange and red.
“We are always looking for innovation, and unique ways to develop our business that push the industry forward,” said Cobra PUMA Golf President Bob Philion. “We recognize that not only our athletes, but our fans, are listening to music on a regular basis, on and off the course. The PUMA Golf Audio Collection fulfills a major opportunity in the market; bringing advanced technology to the golf course in a very relevant and fun way.”
To help consumers get their golfing playlists started, PUMA Golf has set up the PUMA Golf Beats application on their Facebook page. Fans can stream playlists from top professional golfers such as LPGA star Lexi Thompson and PGA Tour stalwarts Rickie Fowler and Jonas Blixt. The PUMA Pro-Performance retails for $79.99 and the PUMA El Diego costs $59.99. Both are available at specialty golf retailers. Learn more at the PUMA Golf website.
