Fourteen Golf in top-10 at Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open

IRVINE, Calif. -- Fourteen Golf, the recognized leader in wedge design with 46 worldwide professional tour victories since the 2010 golf season, announced that a Fourteen Golf wedge was played at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open to tie for eighth place.

According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "As the PGA Tour comes to a close, it is important for the professionals to finish as strong as possible. The top twenty-five on the PGA Tour actually receive incentives and exemptions for next year but for the majority it provides them confidence and additional earnings. We're happy to have helped this PGA Professional close his third Top-10 finish and wish him the best in the future."

The Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open is a golf tournament during the Fall Series of the PGA Tour. It is held at the TPC Summerlin and is hosted by recording artistic and avid golfer Justin Timberlake. The event attracts celebrities, stars and top PGA Professionals like the Fourteen Golf enthusiast who shot three remarkable rounds in the sixties which helped him stay close to the first page of the leaderboard during the entire event.

His determination and Fourteen Golf wedge helped him maintain a competitive second round score of 70 as he chipped in nine yards out from the rough to eagle the par-5 ninth hole. "These types of golfing scenarios are why Fourteen Golf wedges are so popular on tour. They provide control, consistency, and confidence," added Kamoda.

Fourteen Golf had both the company's new RM-11 and MT-28 V5 Wedges in play at the Justin Timberlake Shriners.

The Fourteen Golf RM-11 Wedge received its name from the measurement of "revolutions per minute." The enlarged grooves impart such exceptional spin and rotational speed that the design team thought the name was fitting.

The Fourteen Golf RM-11 Wedge feature larger grooves that translate to maximum spin with exceptional control. The new USGA conforming Fourteen Golf trapezoidal grooves have been enlarged by 15% as compared to its predecessor. This increase in overall groove volume enhances spin retention particularly on partial shots. These new grooves have been tested on the PGA Tour and the Pros all agreed, the RM-11 Wedges with their soft feeling head combined with uniquely shaped larger grooves provide extraordinary control, incomparable spin and precision like accuracy.

"The RM-11 Wedge continues to be played on all tours. It has been credited with professional wins and Top-10 finishes but the MT-28 V5 Wedge also remains in the bags of professionals around the world," added Kamoda.

The highly popular MT-28 V5 forged wedge represents a long legacy of winning wedges. Its predecessor, the MT-28 V4 is known on several professional Tours as the "go to club" or the "money maker." Its exceptional performance has positioned Fourteen as the wedge authority.

This classically designed wedge features the signature Fourteen "reverse taper design" with a traditional forged feel but has been improved by adding a groove strategically located in between the club sole and blade portion of the wedge. This structural change allowed the engineers to move the CG to a higher more stabilizing position for more precise shots.

In preparation for the new groove policy on the professional tours such as the PGA and LPGA, the company spent years engineering a new trapezoidal shaped groove for the MT-28 V5 Wedge. This distinctively sharp-edged trapezoidal groove helps produce spin as well as control.

Fourteen Golf is a burgeoning golf equipment company that takes great pride in their tour program. This year Fourteen Golf officially signed
Japanese golfing prodigy and PGA Professional Ryuji Imada to a three year endorsement deal which includes a staff bag, head covers, hat, umbrella and wedges. He joins Fourteen Golf team members PGA Professionals Chad Collins and Arjun Atwal.
