Used by Winner of European PGA/Asian TOUR's Indonesian Open

(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - The winner of the Enjoy Jakarta Astro Indonesian Open used a Heavy Putter B1-M model to register a final-round, two-under-par 68 and his first European PGA TOUR/Asian TOUR victory yesterday.

After trailing by one shot on the 18th tee, the champion relied on his Heavy Putter to drain a dramatic birdie putt on the final hole to win by one stroke. Over the course of the tournament, he carded 20 birdies and one eagle, earning an impressive scoring average of 65.5 strokes per round. His amazing putts per GIR of 1.696 is just 0.029 shy of the European Tour No. 1 position for putts per GIR average for the 2008 season.

He joins a 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 many Top-10 finishes, and the Heavy Putter was used in victories on two European Challenge Tour events, the Canadian Tour's MTS Classic and the Nationwide TOUR's Henrico County Open.

"We're thrilled the Heavy Putter played a role in yet another win internationally," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf, maker of the Heavy Putter. "Players around the world continue to realize the Heavy Putter is the only putter that automatically gives them a more consistent stroke. The ability to make pressure putts is essential to being a top professional, and the Heavy Putter helps take all the small, twitchy wrist muscles out of the equation."

Boccieri also emphatically responded: "The probability of the few players using the Heavy Putter and winning is staggering. With all the major brands imposing 14 club deals, it is very difficult for a small company to make any noise with their product. Thanks to those who dare to put this revolutionary putter in play, winning is contagious, and more players are realizing the significant advantages of switching to a Heavy Putter."

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.
