Rose signs three-year contract with Maxfli

Greenville, SouthCarolinaJustin Rose has signed a three-year, potentially multi-million dollar deal with Maxfli to play the Maxfli Revolution golf ball and wear the XS Tour Limited Glove, the company announced today.

Rose burst onto the golf scene this summer with a tie for fourth finish at the Open Championship as an amateur, but has struggled since turning pro, failing to make a cut in seven tries. He will attend European Qualifying School later this year.

"We are delighted to have Justin join the Maxfli team of leading professional players," said Robin English, Worldwide Tour Director for Dunlop Maxfli. "He's had a strong amateur career with numerous titles to his credit. We feel that Justin has a phenomenal future ahead of him. He has the capability to be a future Tiger Woods or Se Ri Pak. He'll be able to capitalize further on the strengths of his game with the superior performance benefits of the Maxfli Revolution."

Commenting on the new deal, Rose said, "I chose to play the Maxfli Revolution ball because it complements my style of game. I've been looking for a ball which gives me more distance of the tee and offers feel and control for approach shots around the green. With its unique characteristics, the Revolution ball can give me just that."
