Boccieri Golf Signs Budding Star Tina Miller to Endorse the Heavy Putter

(RIDGEFIELD, Connecticut) - Riding the wave of rapidly-growing acceptance of the Heavy Putter by women golfers, Boccieri Golf today announces it has signed former collegiate champion, current Futures Tour competitor and future LPGA TOUR star Tina Miller to endorse the Heavy Putter.

Miller, 23, will use the Heavy Putter exclusively in all golf events, and is featured in the company's infomercial and other promotional programs. She joins a celebrated endorsement roster that includes PGA TOUR player Troy Matteson, Champions TOUR player and The Golf Channel analyst Mark Lye, renowned instructors Eddie Merrins and Mitchell Spearman, and LPGA TOUR Hall of Fame member Carol Mann.

Miller joined the Futures Tour in January 2006, and has already recorded several top-10 finishes, including fourth place at the Aurora Health Care Championship, in Lake Geneva, WI in early June.

"It's amazing how the Heavy Putter virtually ensures a proper, stable, pendulum stroke," says Miller. "With the Heavy Putter, I have the utmost confidence knowing my stroke won't be unwieldy."

A native of Miami, FL, Miller turned professional in 2005 after a distinguished amateur career. She was first recognized as a star in the making when, at age 10, she was featured on ESPN's "Scholastic Sports America" TV show and two years later played on the Team USA in the Japan Cup. Miller went on to win the 2000 Florida Maxfili PGA Junior Championship and the 2001 Florida State Women's Golf Association Junior Girls Championship. While at the University of Miami, she reordered seven victories, including the 2003 Big East Championship.

"We are thrilled Tina has elevated her game even moreso since she put the Heavy Putter in her bag," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "She is a talented young player with tremendous potential to win early and often at the highest level in golf."

Miller is among thousands of men and women who advocate the Heavy Putter's radical shift in putter concept, design and revolutionary technology. Automatically working with the physiology of golfers' bodies for more consistent putting strokes, the Heavy Putter is the first new putter in decades with innovation that's changing how the sport is played - much like the paradigm shifts that occurred with the advent of metal woods, oversized tennis rackets and parabolic skis.

The Heavy Putter burst onto the golf scene in January 2005 with golfers realizing instant, significantly improved results. Its unprecedented counter-balance theory of a heavier mass head mass and heavier grip causes greater stability in the putting stroke and tightens the end-over-end roll of the golf ball. In addition to 450- to 550-gram head mass (conventional putter heads are roughly 330 to 350 grams), a unique Weight Management System (WMS) - a 250-gram weight installed in the grip end of the putter - produces a balance point 75 percent higher than conventional putters.

With the Heavy Putter, the golfer's body instinctively activates its larger, more stable muscles during the putting stoke. This prevents wrist breakdown and creates greater stability and consistency throughout the stroke. The Heavy Putter comes with adjustable tip weights for the golfer to fine tune the balance point of the putter to match his/her unique release characteristics.

The combination of the heavier mass head, the Weight Management System and the adjustable tip weights permits the golfer to have a more consistent swing path, uniform pace and precise distance and directional control, making the Heavy Putter the first and only putter that automatically improves the consistency of the golfer's stroke.

Boccieri Golf recently unveiled its new Heavy Putter Matte Series putters. Featuring the same, revolutionary weighting technology as the original Heavy Putter, the new Matte Series head is finished in sleek, dark gray and is combined with a satin colored shaft and Winn mid-size grip.

In addition to the difference in appearance, the Heavy Putter Matte Series carries a lower price than the Heavy Putter Original Series. This is due to the Heavy Putter's dramatic rise in popularity, resulting in production efficiencies and cost savings passed along to retailers and consumers. The new Matte Series is $199, including the adjustable tip-weight kit, and available models include:

A1-M - blade-style head with a center-mounted shaft
A2-M - blade-style head with a heel-mounted, full-offset plumber's neck hosel
A3-M - blade-style head with a heel-mounted, double-bend shaft
B1-M - mallet-style head with a center-mounted shaft
B2-M - mallet-style head with a heel-mounted, full-offset plumber's neck hosel
B3-M - mallet-style head with a heel-mounted, double-bend shaft
The Heavy Putter Original Series, with a shinier finish, is available in the same models.

Various standard, mid and long-putter lengths are available for men and women, some in both right- and left-handed models.

More About the Heavy Putter by Boccieri Golf
In addition to the innovative and scientific weight theory, the Heavy Putter boasts the highest-quality, advanced-design principles in putters:

CNC milled from 303 Stainless Steel (304 in Matte Series), a very soft metal that creates a soft putting feel

Perimeter heel-to-toe weighting, creating a high Moment of Inertia (resistance to twisting) for better distance control, and straighter and more accurate putts

Face-balanced heads that make it easier to square the putter head at impact

Diamond-cut, patterned faces that optimize the golf ball's roll and impart a soft feel at impact

"Surround Sight" semi-circle alignment aids - exclusive to the Heavy Putter - located behind the face promote on-center hits and a tighter deviation of sweet spot impact versus lines or dots
