Heavy Putter Ranks No.1 in ‘Putts Per GIR,' Used by Top-10 Finisher at PGA European Tour Johnnie Walker Championship

(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - Boccieri Golf announces the Heavy Putter B3-M model was used by a top-10 finisher who was ranked first in "putts-per-greens-in-regulation (GIR)" and fourth in "putts-per-round-average" at the Johnnie Walker Championship on the European PGA TOUR.

A convert to the Heavy Putter at the beginning of the 2008 PGA European Tour season, he ranks eighth and 10th, respectively, in "putts per GIR" and "putts per round" to date. This is an especially remarkable feat given he competed in more rounds than almost all players in the top-10 of either category.

This impressive 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 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.

"Golfers worldwide are realizing the significant advantages of switching to the Heavy Putter," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "Players competing at the highest level of the sport rely on the repeatable, pendulum stroke that added weight in the head and grip of the Heavy Putter provide."

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 range from 330 to 350 grams). The Heavy Putter's unique Weight Management System, with 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.
