(SOUTH SALEM, New York) – Yesterday’s winner of the Nationwide TOUR’s Mark Christopher Charity Classic in Rancho Cucamonga, California used the new Heavy Putter A-1, center-shaft blade model – with its unique design weighing 90 percent more than standard putters and perfectly balanced – en route to a two-stroke victory.
It was the second time in 2005, the Nationwide TOUR’s leading Money Winner and the Heavy Putter entered the winner’s circle. With the Heavy Putter in his hands in all tournaments this year, he ranks first in Top-10 finishes, second in scoring average and is on pace to break the record for single season earnings.
“Heavy Putter’s success on TOUR validates why golfers of all abilities are switching to the Heavy Putter,” says Stephen Boccieri, inventor of the Heavy Putter and a golf-equipment veteran who previously worked in shaft profiling with PGA TOUR players. “We spent years studying the relationship between putters and physics, and golfers are thanking Heavy Putter for our better line of putters leading fewer putts per round.”
The Heavy Putter has been the industry’s buzz since it launched in late January at the PGA Merchandise Show. The standard Heavy Putter weighs a total of 885 grams (roughly two pounds) – the heaviest among U.S.G.A-conforming putters – whereas conventional putters average 490 grams (roughly one pound). A heavy-mass putter head and an unprecedented Weight Management System, consisting of a heavy upper-shaft insert and interchangeable tip weights, create a balance point 75 percent higher than conventional putters.
The Heavy Putter received critical acclaim for its innovation from representatives of Sports Illustrated, USA Today, U.S. News & World Report, Robb Report, Popular Science, The Golf Channel, all major, national golf magazines, regional golf media and Top 25 daily newspapers. In addition to the Nationwide TOUR, the Heavy Putter has achieved immediate acceptance on the PGA and Champions circuits.
Heavy Putter models include:
A-1 – blade-style head with a center-mounted shaft
A-3 – blade-style head with a heel mounted, double-bend shaft configuration
B-1 – mallet-style head with a center-mounted shaft
B-3- mallet-style head with a heel-mounted, double-bend shaft
Various standard, mid- and long-putter lengths are available for men and women in both right- and left-handed models. MSRP is from $259. Contact: 888-PUTTER4, email@example.com , www.heavyputter.com .
Additional models are planned for production later this year.
The Heavy Putter represents a radical step in putter concept, design and technology, and is touted by professional golfers, industry executives and media as the first new putter in decades that can revolutionize golf. They liken it to the paradigm shift that occurred with the advent of metal woods, the Prince tennis racket and parabolic skis – innovations that changed how a sport is played.
More About The Heavy Putter
Heavy Putter, L.L.C., based in South Salem, NY, incorporates the highest-quality, advanced-design principles in all putters:
— CNC Milled out of 303 Stainless Steel, a very soft metal that creates a soft putting feel Perimeter heel-to-toe weighting – creating a high Moment of Inertia, a scientific trend popular in today’s putter designs – resists twisting, producing straighter, more accurate putts that reach the hole
— Face-balanced heads allow the putter head to naturally find its center (square its face) at impact.
— The diamond-cut face pattern optimizes the golf ball’s roll and imparts a soft feel directly following impact
— The “Surround Sight” semi-circle alignment aid – exclusive to the Heavy Putter – located directly behind the face, promotes consistency on center hits. This results in a tighter deviation of impact on the sweet spot versus a traditional putter with a line or dot alignment mark.
— The unique channel formed between the heel and toe weights on both blade and mallet putters promote a visual track to the target
