Boccieri Golf's Mid-Weight Series honored in Golf Tips magazine

RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Boccieri Golf - maker of the Tour-proven Heavy Putter - confirms that its popular Mid-Weight Series was honored in the Nov/Dec issue of Golf Tips magazine as one of the "Top Putters" for 2009, receiving the publication's coveted "GT Tech Award."

One of only five lines to receive this prestigious honor, the Mid-Weight Series was spotlighted for its innovative design that marked a true advancement in the equipment sector.

"Professionals and amateurs alike have discovered the performance benefits of the Mid-Weight Series, which was preferred by 7 out of 10 golfers in nationwide testing over their current brands," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "The Heavy Putter has gained a tremendous following since its introduction in 2005, and now with the MID-WEIGHT Series we're seeing record breaking sell-through numbers across all retail channels."

Also named to Golf Digest's 2009 "Hot List," and ranked first in Golf Magazine's 2009 "Putter Test," the Mid-Weight Series has found its way into the bags of many top-performers, including winners on the PGA, European, Champions, Asian, Nationwide and Canadian Tours. The K4 model was used by John Daly during his runner-up finish at the BMW Italian Open.

All Heavy Putter models showcase an unprecedented counter-balance theory of a heavier mass head and weighted grip. This causes the body to engage its larger, core muscles for greater stroke stability, consistent swing paths, uniform pace, precise distance and directional control, tightening end-over-end golf ball roll.

The Mid-Weight Series has a total weight of 750 grams, which 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.

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.

About the Heavy Putter
Introduced in 2005, the Heavy Putter is carried in all 50 states and more than 35 overseas markets. It is found in many of the finest off-course shops and most prestigious golf courses, country clubs and resorts worldwide.

The Heavy Putter's global popularity stems from its unprecedented counter-balance theory of a heavier mass head and weighted grip. This causes the body to engage its larger, core muscles for greater stroke stability, consistent swing paths, uniform pace and precise distance and directional control, tightening end-over-end golf ball roll.

The Heavy Putter Original, Matte and Deep Face Series models, which spawned a global following, each incorporates the company's pioneering weighting technology, including a 475-gram head (conventional heads are 330 to 350 grams) and a 250-gram weight installed in the grip end, producing a balance point 75 percent higher than conventional putters.
