cheadleActor and environmentalist Don Cheadle is a bag fan of Dixon Earth recycled golf balls — and he recently agreed to become a celebrity spokesperson for the company.

Cheadle used the eco-friendly balls during the celebrity-challenge portion of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tourney yesterday.

“I love the game of golf and want to do my part to educate golfers how to be more environmentally responsible, even when it comes to the golf balls we use,” Cheadle said in a release.

“I have been playing the Dixon Earth ball for a while and love the fact that not only is it eco-friendly, but it is a high performance golf ball as well. I am a single-digit handicapper and feel that the Dixon Earth ball fits my game as well as any ball out there,” he added. “It is refreshing to be associated with a company that shares my love of golf and the environment.”

Dixon Golf’s Earth ball line is made from reprocessable materials and is 100-percent recyclable. Their golf ball recycling program is the first of its kind, and allows consumers to get cash credits good for any Dixon Golf ball purchase while also helping to protect the environment.
