Heavy Putter Earns Golf Digest 2007 'Hot List' Honor

(RIDGEFIELD, Connecticut) - Boccieri Golf - maker of the TOUR-proven Heavy Putter - has been named to the Golf Digest 2007 "Hot List" in the mallet putter category for the second consecutive year.

The Heavy Putter Series "B" models received extremely high praise from the Golf Digest panel of testers. In the categories of performance and technology, the Heavy Putter scored "outstanding," the highest rating.

Some panelists' comments about the Heavy Putter as published in Golf Digest's February issue:

"This thing works."
"Even on mis-hits, its buttery soft.
"If I had a putter just for three footers, this would be it."
"The yips die here."
Of the 97 putters nominated for honors, the Heavy Putter was one of only 11 mallets to make the "Hot List."

The annual list showcases golf equipment that has received the best reviews from Golf Digest testers. It is a year-long process that begins with 502 manufacturers, then cut to 235 and finally to the top 140 putters, drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, wedges and balls.

"We are very proud to again be among the elite putters in the market as judged by sophisticated Golf Digest testers," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "It is gratifying to know that so many golfers are benefiting from the Heavy Putter."

The "Hot List" distinction parallels the success of The Heavy Putter when exclusively used in competition by many of the world's best golfers. PGA TOUR winner Troy Matteson, European Challenge Tour two-time winner Adrian Mork, Canadian Tour winner Josh Habig, Champion's TOUR player Mark Lye and Futures Tour competitor Tina Miller are among the Heavy Putter enthusiasts.

Introduced in early 2005, the revolutionary and 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 innovative weight technology features a 450-550 gram head (conventional heads are 330-350 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 is $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.
