Fourteen Golf starts PGA Tour season with two top-10 finishes

IRVINE, Calif. -- Fourteen Golf, a global leader in wedge and iron design with over 48 professional tour victories, announced that their PGA Tour Program has begun the new 2013 PGA Tour season with two consecutive Top-10 finishes both coming from Hawaii.

According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "Fourteen Golf is known on the PGA Tour for their wedges but when pinpoint accuracy is needed because of a certain golf course layout or conditions, our Tour Utility Irons get a lot of play. At the Hyundai Tournament, the professionals had to endure 40 mph wind gusts -- almost impossible to play! This is why a smart and steady PGA Professional used our Tour Utility Iron to manage the wind, control his shots to the greens and capture his first Top-10 finish of the year. His second Top-10 finish came the following week during The Sony Open."

Fourteen Golf designs product inspired by the professional and the Fourteen Golf Utility Iron is proof of that. It hits long shots precisely to pinpoint targets. Every week the Touring Professionals play incredibly difficult golf courses. They must hit their long irons tight to the pin so precision with accuracy is a necessity. For the consumer, Fourteen Golf developed the Hi-610s T.S. based on these performance characteristics.

A hollow structured head produces the distance of a fairway wood with the accuracy of an iron. They look easy to hit and in fact, they are. A deep and lower CG provides control as well as stability. It allows the skilled golfer to select the smallest of targets and precisely get there.

"The Hi-610h T.S. is the perfect alternative to long irons. A highly engineered club head combined with an exclusive proprietary sole makes any lie easy to get out of and with uncanny accuracy. They are effortless to hit," adds Kamoda.

The Hi-610h T.S. features a relatively small club head size. The idea was to maintain the appearance of a traditional iron while managing to produce a club that will allow golfers to hit solidly out of any rough. There are three Hi-610h T.S. Utility Irons to choose from, a #2, #3, and #4. For more information and specifications on these unique irons, visit the Fourteen Golf website at www.fourteengolf.com.

Fourteen Golf is a burgeoning golf equipment company that takes great pride in their tour program. The company proudly announced the addition of PGA Professional John Mallinger to the Fourteen Golf Professional Staff in January of 2013. He will play both the RM-11 and RM-12 Wedges as well as wear a Fourteen Golf cap. His staff bag, head covers, umbrella and towel will all display the Fourteen Golf logo.

Last 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.
