The Heavy Putter Used by Winner of Nationwide Tour's Henrico County Open

(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - The winner of the Nationwide Tour's Henrico County Open in Glen Allen, Virginia used a Heavy Putter B-3 model to register a tournament-high 22 birdies and top three players in a playoff yesterday for his first career professional victory.

The champion switched to the Heavy Putter just two weeks ago, and needed only 26 putts in the pressure-packed final round.

He joins a legion of professional golfers experiencing dramatic improvement with the Heavy Putter. Troy Matteson won the PGA TOUR's Fry' Open and registered five consecutive Top-10 finishes. Adrien Mork captured two European Challenge Tour events and posted a record-breaking 59, while Josh Habig triumphed at the Canadian Tour's MTS Classic.

"It can't be a coincidence that every time a player switches to the Heavy Putter, we chalk up a victory," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf, maker of the Heavy Putter. "This proves it doesn't take long for the attributes of the Heavy Putter to pay off when players can pick it up and transition to winning within a two-week period."

Amateur golfers are also realizing greater putting proficiency with the Heavy Putter. This is evidenced by high demand for the Heavy Putter, which has caused distribution in 29 markets worldwide.

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.
