Heavy Putter Momentum Continues on PGA European Tour

First-Time User Records Best Finish in 2008 at The Celtic Manor Wales Open

(RIDGEFIELD, CT) -- Boccieri Golf continued its success on the PGA European Tour as a first-time user of the company's Heavy Putter recorded his best finish of the season with a fourth-place tie at The Celtic Manor Wales Open yesterday.

Confidence on the green made the difference as he used the company's B2-M model en route to four rounds in the 60s and an average "putts per round" of 28.2, sixth best in the field.

Prior to this achievement, the Heavy Putter enjoyed a victory at the Enjoy Jakarta Astro Indonesia Open and runner-up finishes at the Spanish Open and Irish Open on the 2008 PGA European Tour.

"There has been an incredible trend lately of European Tour players using the Heavy Putter with amazing results," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf, maker of the Heavy Putter. "These golfers are realizing that traditionally designed putters don't allow for the same consistently repeatable stroke as the Heavy Putter."

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 Asian PGA, Canadian, Nationwide and European Challenge Tours.

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.
