Heavy Putter Global Success Continues at European PGA Tour's Irish Open
05.19.08(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - The Heavy Putter B3-M model was used by the runner-up at yesterday's Irish Open on the European PGA TOUR, following his victory with the Heavy Putter B1-M model at the Enjoy Jakarta Open earlier this season.
Relying on his Heavy Putter, he carded four rounds of par or better, including a 67 on Saturday to put him in contention. His impressive "putts per GIR" of 1.686 was second best in the field, and an average "putts per round" of 28 was fourth.
This latest TOUR finish adds to the global legion of professional golfers experiencing remarkable improvement after switching to the Heavy Putter. Troy Matteson won the PGA TOUR's Fry's.com Open and has recorded several Top-10 finishes using the Heavy Putter, which has also contributed to victories on the European PGA, Asian PGA, Canadian, Nationwide and European Challenge Tours.
"More players worldwide are realizing the significant advantages of changing to the Heavy Putter," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf, maker of the Heavy Putter. "By creating an easily-repeatable pendulum stroke, golfers can more confidently sink the pressure putts separating good rounds from bad ones."
Introduced in early 2005, the Heavy Putter is now carried in all 50 states and in 30 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 stems from its unprecedented counter-balance theory of a heavier mass head and weighted grip. This 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.
The new Heavy Putter Deep Face Series retails for $169, and is available in two blade and three mallet models. Each can be custom ordered in standard, mid- and long-putter lengths for men and women, and some models are available for left-handed golfers.
