About Ron Masak:
Ron Masak (MAY-SACK) was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of a salesman/musician (Floyd L.), and a mother (Mildred), who was a merchandise buyer.

During the course of his career, he has starred in 25 feature films and guest starred in some 350 television shows. 
Trained in the classics, Ron has proven to be equally at home on stage or screen with Shakespeare or slapstick. He has played everything from Stanley in Streetcar Named Desire and Sakini in Teahouse of the August Moon to Will Stockdale in No Time For Sergeants and Antony in Julius Caesar. As more proof of his versatility, in one production of Mr. Roberts, he played Ensign Pulver and in another he portrayed Mr. Roberts himself. In his hometown of Chicago, Ron was resident leading man at The Candlelight Dinner Playhouse from 1962 to 1966, never missing a single performance. As with many performers, it was the Army that provided Ron with a platform from which to display his all-around talents for performing, writing and directing. In 1960-61, Ron toured the world doing vocal impressions in the all-Army show entitled Rolling Along. Once again, he never missed a show.

Never one to be pigeonholed, Ron continued to demonstrate his incredible range of talent in such films as Ice Station Zebra, Daddy's Gone A-Hunting, Tora! Tora! Tora!, Evel Knievel, A Time For Dying, Harper Valley PTA, Cops & Roberts and The Man From Clover Grove. It was during Clover Grove that Ron added credits as a lyric writer, as he wrote and sang the title song. He played his first big screen villain starring in No Code of Conduct. Among his many television roles, he starred as Charley Wilson in his own summer series, Love Thy Neighbor, Count Dracula on The Monkees and was submitted for an Emmy nomination for one of his ten starring roles on Police Story. He's been seen on Magnum P.I., Webster and Columbo. His movies of the week include The Neighborhood, In the Glitter Palace, Pleasure Cove, Once An Eagle, The Law and Harry McGraw and Robert Altman's Nightmare in Chicago.

Ron's variety work includes emceeing hundreds of shows for, among others, Kenny Rogers, Diahann Carroll, Alabama, Billy Crystal, The Steve Garvey Classics, Tony Orlando, The Lennon Sisters, Trini Lopez, Connie Stevens, Billy Davis and Marilyn McCoo, The Michael Landon Classics and The Beau Bridges Classics.

Ron is also considered to be the most famous salesman since Willy Loman, as he starred in the four most successful sales motivational films of all time: Second Effort with Vince Lombardi, Time Management with James Whitmore, How to Control Your Time with Burgess Meredith and Ya Gotta Believe with Tommy Lasorda, which Ron wrote and directed. He is a sought after motivational speaker. He has traveled all over the country as spokesman for a major brewing company and for 15 years was the voice of the Vlasic Pickle stork. Ron played Lou Costello in commercials for Bran News, McDonald’s, and Tropicana Orange Juice.

Frequently seen on the talk and game show circuit, Ron has been a celebrity panelist on such game shows as Password, Tattletales, Crosswits, Liar's Club, Showoffs and Match Game. He was a regular panelist on To Tell the Truth.

Ron's private life is also one of varied interests and talents, devoting time and energy working with many charities. For eight years he was the LA host for the Jerry Lewis Telethon and recipient of MDA's first Humanitarian of the Year Award. He has served as field announcer for the Special Olympics in support of retarded children, and was named Man of the Year by Volunteers Assisting Cancer Stricken Families. In addition, he contributes much time to work with Multiple Sclerosis, Cystic Fibrosis, Breast Cancer Awareness and hosts charity golf tournaments for among others, Childhelp USA, for whom he is a worldwide ambassador.

Relaxation for Ron includes time spent with friends on the golf course, tennis court, basebal Ldiamond, ski slopes or at Dodger Stadium. A fine athlete, Ron was once offered a professional baseball contract with The Chicago White Sox.

Future projects include Ron starring as Mark Twain in the feature film, Mark Twain's Greatest Adventure, which he will co-produce, and a one-man show he wrote on Twain called, At Home with Mark Twain. He is currently writing a book entitled, I’ve Met All My Heroes, From A-Z. He recently created the role of Sam Belsky in the world premiere of Jay Kholo's new musical My Catskills Summer.

Ron's favorite role remains that of husband to his lovely wife Kay, and father to their six children as well as grandfather to their six grandchildren. They reside in Tarzana, California, where Ron has served for 35 years as, of course, its honorary sheriff.

"I have an idea."
- C. Parise, Father of the SSG Design

Yeah it always starts with an idea. The funny thing about an idea is that unless you act on it, it won't do you or anyone any good. So here we are. A new David amongst an Army of Goliaths. People ask us all the time. "Are you ready to take on the big boys?" Our answer is simple. "We do have some intelligence. We're not trying to beat the big guys, we're just offering something different. After all, not everyone wants to play with their daddy's clubs."

The idea began as a driver (yeah always with the Big Dog) and the thought of aerodynamic designs seen in down hill ski racing and bicycle racing helmets (you knew you had seen that look before). It's not how fast WE can make you swing but rather the dynamics of how to reduce the coefficient of drag during your downswing. Basically saying that to move the air around your clubhead with the least amount of resistance. Since we cannot control your swing speed, we can offer you an aerodynamic clubhead that offers a smaller coefficient of drag. Just read this equation and you'll get it.

F = 1/2 CDAV

Okay, so you forgot everything from your physics class. Well, don't wait for the movie. Just trust us on this one. The least resistance you have the more accurate you'll be at impact AND your club will move through the air quicker.

Golf doesn't have to be a bore and neither do you.
Okay, so now that you understand the laws of aerodynamics (don't worry, there's not a quiz coming), let's talk about your game and our clubs. A lot of people view golf as a really boring game (We hate those people) and they have even said that it isn't even a sport (tell that to Tiger Woods). Well it is a sport and a damn fine one at that. Have you seen all of those drivers and hybrids out there? Round or square they all share the same wonderful look of black on top. Henry Ford once said of his model T "You can have it in any color you want, as long as it's black." So back to our idea. We are not all the same, we all play a different game and some of us like to express ourselves. So to all of you who think golf is boring and everything is the same… we say "you ain't seen nothing yet!"

So we got together for a big meeting. And after many many many minutes we came to a huge conclusion; "We should be having this meeting on the golf course!" Then we came up with another brilliant idea. ADD COLOR. The unique look of our clubs will also help you improve your game. How? If you integrate the design/look into your game; that's right Einsteins, use the Sweet Spot Diamond and the lines on the club and match them to your target line and VOILA. At least by aiming in the right direction you are beginning the process correctly. However, whatever goofy stuff you do with your swing between address and impact is solely your responsibility. See our legal disclaimer if you don't believe us…

Maximum MOI (everyone's talking about it and we got it!)
"Moment of inertia, also called mass moment of inertia and, sometimes, the angular mass, (SI units kg m2, Former British units slug ft2), is the rotational analog of mass." A special thanks to Wikipedia for this. What we are talking about is this. Have you ever hit a driver off the toe or close to the hosel? At impact the force from your brutish swing suddenly twists your club left or right, causing you to let out a groan as the rest of your foursome snickers. Well, our drivers, hybrids and putters come with peripheral weighting to the left and right of the club face. This weighting system will help you keep your club from twisting at impact. Pushing more mass through impact instead of allowing the ball to turn your club and putting a nasty left to right or right to left spin on your ball. Again the disclaimer… we can only do so much for you. We cannot control your actual swing, grow up and take some responsibility for your game. See a professional (we are talking a golf pro here, not your mother's therapist).

All Together Now
So, aerodynamics, combined with a stylistic design to help you find your line, an additional weighting system to keep your club from twisting at impact, add up to why we are who we are. We feel pretty strong about this concept. You will also get the added benefit of people gawking at you standing there with your clubs as you brutally send your drive down the fairway, roll it onto the green and into the cup. They'll definitely know that you're not playing with your old man's clubs anymore. So give us a swing. And if you like us, well guess what, we'll like you too.

Go Ahead. Be Different.
