Fourteen Golf claims second place finish at eGolf Tour Championship

IRVINE, Calif. -- Fourteen Golf, the recognized leader in wedge design with 47 worldwide professional tour victories since 2010, announced that the second place finisher at the eGolf Tour Championship at Star Fort in Ninety Six, SC, played two Fourteen GolfF Wedges.

According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "The eGolf Professional Tour is one of the best developmental tours in North America, making it possible for professionals to ascend to the PGA Tour. We recognize the importance of supporting players on this tour and will continue to make our products available to these talented golfers. We congratulate this professional on his outstanding performance at this event."

The runner-up posted a 15-under 201, marking his best finish on the eGolf Tour since a runner-up effort at the 2011 Grand Harbor Open. He earned $7,780 for his finish, moving him up to No. 56 on the tour's money list with $15,298 in earnings in just nine starts on the year. In August of this year, he won the 59th annual Georgia Open - one of the more prestigious state opens in the country.

The second place finisher played Fourteen Golf MT-28 V5 T.S. 52 and 60-degree wedges. "This golfer consistently uses our wedges to set himself up for birdies and pars. The statistics are impressive - he was #1 at this event with the most pars or better," 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.

"The MT-28 V5 Wedge is played throughout the world and limited inventory remains in some of our larger retailers like Roger Dunn, Golfers Warehouse and Vans. We encourage any golfers who want to try the MT-V5 Wedge to visit the company website and click on dealer locator," added Kamoda.

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.
