John Daly Uses Heavy Putter MID-WEIGHT Series En-Route to Runner-Up Finish at BMW Italian Open
05.11.09(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - Boccieri Golf confirms that John Daly used its popular Heavy Putter MID-WEIGHT K4 model en-route to a runner-up finish at the PGA European Tour's BMW Italian Open, contested this past weekend at Royal Park I Roveri in Torino, Italy.
Using the Heavy Putter in competition for the first time, Daly shot four rounds in the 60s, buoyed by a top-25 ranking in both the "Putts per Round" and "Putts per GIR" categories. Continuing the trend of players experiencing significant performance improvements with the Heavy Putter, this marked Daly's best result on the PGA European Tour since winning the 2001 BMW International Open.
"More and more players on all the major tours worldwide are trying the MID-WEIGHT Series and quickly recognizing the Heavy Putter's ability to effectively lower scores," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "This is the third week in a row that someone has turned in a tremendous performance with our revolutionary technology and the momentum shows no signs of slowing down. We had nine putters in play at the Italian Open and three finished in the top twenty-five, it is by far the fastest growing putter on the European Tour."
Daly's tie for second in Italy comes just one week after the Heavy Putter was used by the runner-up at the PGA European Tour's Open de Espana, and two weeks after a player on the Champions Tour switched to the brand and captured the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. Success for the Heavy Putter includes wins on the PGA, European, Champions, Asian, Nationwide and Canadian Tours.
With a total weight of 750 grams, the MID-WEIGHT Series is lighter than previous Heavy Putter models yet heavier than traditional offerings. It is available in five classic designs offered in a rich black "PVD" or silver satin finish, and features Boccieri Golf's unprecedented counter-balance theory of added weight in the head and grip. This causes the body to engage its larger muscles for a consistent swing path, uniform pace, precise distance and directional control, tightening end-over-end golf ball roll.
MID-WEIGHT Series models include:
CX2 - Classic blade design that is face balanced; plumbers-neck hosel with a full shaft offset.
H1/H3 - Medium-size face balanced mallet; high MOI rating for forgiveness on off-center hits. Features a thin face to improve feel at impact; available in both heel (H3) with a double bend with half shaft offset and center-shafted (H1) models with a striking parabola channel alignment aid with a single long site line.
J2 - Deeper flanged blade offers the forgiveness of a mallet with a sleek top-line; face balanced with a plumbers-neck hosel with a full shaft offset.
K4 - Classic "toe-droop" blade with thin top line; short slant neck hosel with half-shaft offset.
L3 - Traditional small face balanced mallet; heel shafted double-bend half-shaft offset, a unique three-line alignment system, center top line and two lower lines frame the ball, while thin-face design promotes crisper feel at impact, improves MOI.
