Boccieri Golf Expands Midwest Staff for the Heavy Putter

(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - To optimally service high demand for the Heavy Putter in the Midwest, Boccieri Golf today announced the appointments of Scott Brunzell as account representative in Nebraska and Iowa, and Bruce Stewart to the same position in Ohio.

Based in their respective territories, Brunzell and Stewart will support on- and off-course retailers experiencing rapid sell-through of the Heavy Putter. They will also fulfill order requests from a growing legion of merchandisers seeking to carry the Heavy Putter for the first time.

"We're committing substantial resources to bolster staff to handle the countless new accounts and re-orders we receive daily for the Heavy Putter," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf, maker of the Heavy Putter. "And we're working overtime, superbly ensuring customers get the exact putters they order - and on time."

Carried in all 50 states and 29 overseas markets, the Heavy Putter is found in many of the finest off-course shops and most prestigious golf courses, country clubs and resorts worldwide.

Part of the Heavy Putter's popularity stems from its wide use and success on the professional golf tours. Recently, the Heavy Putter was played by the winner of the Nationwide TOUR's Henrico County Open (Glen Allen, VA). Troy Matteson won the PGA TOUR's Fry's.com Open and registered five consecutive Top-10 finishes with the Heavy Putter. Furthermore, Adrien Mörk captured two European Challenge Tour events and posted a record-breaking 59, while Josh Habig triumphed at the Canadian Tour's MTS Classic.

Introduced in early 2005, the popular Heavy Putter is the first and only putter that automatically improves the consistency of golfers' strokes. Its unprecedented counter-balance theory of a heavier mass head and weighted grip causes greater stroke stability, consistent swing paths, uniform pace, precise distance and directional control, and tightens the end-over-end golf ball roll.

The pioneering weight technology features a 450- to 550-gram head (conventional heads are 330 to 350 grams). The Heavy Putter's unique Weight Management System, a 250-gram weight installed in the grip end, produces a balance point 75 percent higher than conventional putters.

Golfers instinctively activate their larger, more stable muscles, preventing wrist breakdown and creating greater stability and consistency throughout the stroke.

Adjustable tip weights fine tune the balance point of the putter to match golfers' unique release characteristics.

The new Heavy Putter Matte Series retails for $199, including the adjustable tip-weight kit. Three blade and three mallet models come in standard, mid and long-putter lengths for men and women with different shaft configurations. Some models are available for left-handed golfers.
