Heavy Putter Receives Golfing Magazine ‘Player's Choice Award'

A1-M Wins for ‘Best Feel,' B3-M ‘Best Distance Control'

(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - Boccieri Golf - maker of the TOUR-proven Heavy Putter - announces that two of its most popular models each received a "Player's Choice Award" from Golfing Magazine in its "Hands On Play" reader test program.

The Heavy Putter A1-M - a center-shafted blade - won the award for "Best Feel" and the B3-M - a heel-shafted mallet - won for "Best Distance Control."

This represents the third consecutive year the Heavy Putter has been recognized as a Golfing Magazine award winner. Other honors for the Heavy Putter include the Golf Digest "Hot List," Rankmark, Golf Test USA and PGATour.com.

"We are thrilled Golfing Magazine testers are overwhelmingly pleased with the dynamic performance of the Heavy Putter," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "We spent years studying the relationship between putters and physics, and thanks to fewer putts per round, golfers are swearing by the superiority of the Heavy Putter line."

Golfers of all abilities are significantly improving their scoring after switching to Heavy Putter. Troy Matteson won two Nationwide TOUR events and the PGA Tour's Fry.com Open en route to five consecutive top-10 finishes. Adrien Mork won two European Challenge Tour events and shot a record-setting round of 59. On the Canadian Tour, Josh Habig won with Heavy Putter.

Introduced in early 2005, the Heavy Putter is now carried in all 50 states and 29 overseas markets. It is found in many of the finest off-course shops and most prestigious golf courses, country clubs and resorts worldwide.

The Heavy Putter's global popularity is because it's 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.
