Kenny Perry selected to play 19th annual Merrill Lynch Shootout

OAK BROOK TERRACE, Ill. -- Excel Golf Products, Inc., manufacturer of the Zero Friction Performance Golf Tee and the Tocaré Performance Golf Grip announced that Excel staff player Kenny Perry has been selected to play in the 19th Annual Merrill Lynch Shark Shootout hosted by Greg Norman.

The Shootout will take place at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida from December 5th through the 9th. Twelve 2-man teams will battle it out while raising funds and awareness for the CureSearch National Childhood Cancer Foundation.

Perry will be teamed with close friend and previous Shootout partner, Scott Hoch. Together, they have a combined total of 20 PGA TOUR victories and more than $40 million in career earnings.
Playing professionally since 1982, Perry finished 79th on the 2007 money list. Since winning the 2005 Colonial playing the Zero Friction tee, he has been a loyal user of the product.

The Zero Friction Performance Golf Tee has been used to claim over 30 PGA TOUR victories and over 200 top-10 finishes since its creation in 2005. Its success can be attributed to its distinctive patented 3-pronged cup which provides less resistance between the golf ball and tee, resulting in longer, straighter drives. The environmentally friendly tee is available in 1 ¾”,
2 ¾”, and 3 ¼” and comes in white, pink, red, black and blue.

Excel Golf’s newest offering, The Tocaré Golf Grip, features Vibration Diffusion Pattern (VDP) Technology. Composed of a unique internal diamond pattern, the grips diffuse vibration, providing for a more fluid swing. The multi-material composition provides optimum tackiness and feel, while the multi-durometer design reduces grip pressure to allow golfers to swing more freely.
