Fourteen Golf, recognized worldwide amongst top touring golf professionals as the foremost leading wedge designer and manufacturer, announced today that their professional staff member Ted Oh thrived under PGA Tour Q-School pressure and finished in first place.
Oh is no stranger to pressure. As a sixteen year old high school sophomore from California, he qualified for the 1993 U.S. Open. He took on the challenge with enthusiasm, guts, and a great smile. The media coined him "Oh Boy". He missed the cut but had the pleasure of playing with golfing greats Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros, and Jose Maria Olazabal. As a junior he was ranked higher than Tiger Woods.
In 1999, Oh became a member of the Nationwide Tour. That year he made the cut 10 out of 18 starts. In 2000 he joined both the Korean PGA Tour and Asian Tour. In 2001 he was named "Rookie of the Year" from the Asian Tour. He has been playing both tours consistently. Last year he celebrated one of his favorite victories. He won the Long Beach Open with his sister helping him as a caddy.
As a resident of California, Oh would like to spend more time in the states and is trying to qualify for the PGA Tour. In the first stage of the PGA Tour Q-School, Oh shot an impressive 20-under for a total of 268 at the Dayton Valley Country Club four day event. Oh will proceed to the second stage of the three staged PGA Tour-Q School.
"Ted has been a long time supporter of Fourteen Golf. He has used our equipment for years. We wish him the very best during this difficult process," said Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda.
Every club in Oh's staff bag is a Fourteen Golf club with the exception of his putter. He plays the JC 707 driver which offers him the ultimate in distance. His fairway wood of choice is the SF-206. It's simple but classic lines appeals to his swing style. He plays both #3 and #5 wood. For a lower center of gravity, Oh prefers the TC 550 irons. He carries three different MT-28 V4 wedges; a 50, 56, and 60 degree wedge.
Fourteen Golf understands the importance of the short game, this significant portion of the game has created an unprecedented demand on most tours for their signature series of wedges. The company prides itself on the nine titles won this year using their short game arsenal.
Established in Japan in the early 1980s, Fourteen Golf was known as a premier golf equipment design company. The highly successful venture developed exclusive designs for Titleist, Yamaha, Srixon (formerly Dunlop Japan), Wilson, PRGR, and many more. The original team was credited with developing the first hybrid iron and the highly popular "Citation" cavity iron by Power Bilt which was one of the most popular irons of the 1980s. In the year 2000, the business transitioned into branded design and manufacturing company.
The name "Fourteen" is based on the fundamental rule of golf which states that the player can carry up to 14 golf clubs in their bag. Fourteen Golf strives to produce the best 14 clubs ever. Fourteen Golf aims to achieve the ultimate in club characteristics which allow golfers to hit shots they didn't think possible. These clubs bring out the strength in a player. Like their "feather" moniker which represent the best scores in golf; a birdie, eagle, and albatross, these clubs will bring out the best scores for any golfer, professional or amateur.
