Click Through Rate 25 Times Greater than Average

(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - Boccieri Golf reports its recently launched advertising campaign featuring the new Heavy Putter MID-WEIGHT Series has generated significant consumer and industry response as witnessed by a click through rate on Golf.com that is 25 times greater than the site average.

Highlighting extensive consumer testing conducted by Boccieri Golf, the creative points to the fact that 7 out of 10 golfers preferred the new MID-WEIGHT over the putter in their bags.

"The superior theory, technology and design of our putters has lead to global acceptance, as evidenced by the '7 out of 10' ad campaign."
